In reply to:

djohnfot: Yeah, the world really needs yet another cheap tablet that no one wants, especially if its quality is as poor as that of other recent Kodak products.

Entoman, I was not referring to your posts, with which I mostly agree. Peace, my friend.

Why is there always some twit who has to offer up his unsolicited political opinions? Most of us come here to get away from all that rubbish. Leave it in the dustbin, people.

dansclic, you have wandered off on a tangent touching subjects no one was mentioning. What do you have against Canon, Nikon, and Ricoh/Pentax?

Kodak products recently marketed in North America have ranged in quality and usefulness from terrible to average. Some, like their 360 degree cameras show some forethought and innovation, most show little effort. The brand is declining and I'm thinking Archos should choose another brand under which they offer their products. In North America Kodak means cheap, having lost its panache decades ago.

On article DPReview Asks: What was your first camera? (766 comments in total)

In 1963 I had a 127 Kodak brownie. In 1968, a Yashica 126, in 1971 a Yashica Electro 35 GS, which was a wonderful camera. Got my first SLR in 1973, a Petri. In 1976 I bought a Pentax Spotmatic F.

Now, many cameras later, I have a Canon EOS 60D.

djohnfot: dpreview has always been one of the class acts in its field, with the best reviews and most up-to-date news and general interest articles. Here's to an even better 2015!

My one wish is that the trolls would at least read the article before they post their comments. Otherwise they are wasting their time and ours.

I said they were the best reviews, not the most up to date. Feel free to disagree.

On article Travel tripods: 5 carbon fiber kits reviewed (95 comments in total)
In reply to:

djohnfot: I have a very similar Velbon that seems to do everything these do yet it cost only 1/2 that of the lowest price reviewed model. The only significant difference is that the Velbon is mostly aluminum. Is it worth double price for carbon fiber?

True, cf is stiffer and lighter than aluminum but the Velbon is very sturdy. That's probably because it incorporates a center brace. My only question is whether the cf tripods are worth 2X the price for a few ounces less weight.

Were I in the market for a full-sized tripod to replace my ancient Ponder & Best, which is all aluminum but steady as a rock and strong enough to hold a Mamiya 6 X 7 camera with lens, I would by a cf model. That P&B is no lightweight and the latest CF I tried is considerably lighter, which at my fairly advanced age is no small thing.

Cheers!

On article Shooting Raw with the Nokia Lumia 1020 (76 comments in total)
In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: I understand raw capability should made it more attractive to serious users. But wouldn't a serious raw user conclude that to get better quality, one needs to use a camera to take pictures?

Items like this exist for those who think that the latest tech is always better.

An interesting exercise but the only benefit I can see from shooting RAW is a slight improvement in DR.
