Nuno Souto: When will the "dslr-only" folks wake up and understand the days of lugging around 15 pounds of equipment to take one photo or make a little video are over and done?

And no, you are NOT a "pro" because you use the same gear as some internet blogger!

Grow up, go outside and smell the flowers, it's really worth it.
Mirrorless is here to stay and is the future.

Thank you so much for letting us DSLR users know the error of our ways. I was lost but now I'm found.

dennis tennis: bah! meh! I still prefer to read Latin etched into marble tablets by monks.

Ah, you had it easy! When I was young we had to scratch our own Latin into soggy cardboard using a broken bicycle pump handle. And we couldn't read what we'd written. And the young kids today...

On article Trippy mirrored timelapse turns Hong Kong upside down (15 comments in total)

Nice to look at and a little surreal, a bit like an upbeat version of Koyaanisqatsi but a little too squeaky clean for me.

On photo Discus fish in the Fish challenge (7 comments in total)

Very strong distortion effects have been applied to this photo. The Discus (Symphysodon aequifasciatus) is quite real but no-one has ever seen one quite like this in a fish tank or in the wild.

Mfritter: I had two Merrills which I ultimately sold because of the shooting ergonomics and lack of a viewfinder and the agonies of Sigma Photo Pro (on my underpowered Windows system). But the IQ was just fantastic and I miss them. Now I have a much more powerful Mac (and can use Iridient). If this thing delivers a more mature shooting envelope, I'll buy it. And the lens. Very excited by the pricing.

I do wonder what happened to the APS-H, which seems to have been stricken from the Sigma web site.

No, the sdQ H is still on Sigma's website: http://www.sigma-global.com/en/cameras/sd-series//

On photo I Thought That I Would Never See... in the Abstract Photo - Landscape challenge (1 comment in total)

Wonderful capture. The starkness of the tree and the square format make this shot.

sportyaccordy: Sigma is going after the highly overlooked Cyclops and tryclops markets with that EVF placement. Good for them.

The EVF is in the same position as the Hasselblad X1D and I don't see either as being a problem.

On article 2016 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras $500-800 (213 comments in total)

It seems a little strange to judge X-E2s' LCD screen as, "Fixed LCD, not touch-sensitive" when, according to a recent survey - right here on DPR - hardly anyone cares about touch screens on cameras.

You seem to be be obsessed with 'features', regardless of whether they are useful or not. In effect you are encouraging camera manufactures to stuff as many features as possible into their bodies, just so they can say, 'Buy our cameras. We have lots of features!' Not, 'Buy our cameras. They do what they were designed to do better than the competition.'

TriezeA72: Ever since TIME magazine named Angela Merkel person of the year for 2015, I find it hard to take them seriously anymore!

Yeah... but TIME also named Adolf Hitler Man of the Year in 1938. Who would you prefer...?

ThatCamFan: In short: Very pro apple, and also Google Glass? Its the one product everyone HATES and nobody bought. A waffle maker was more of a game changer.

The Pocket PC had far more influence on the shape of things to come. Without it there would be no so-called Smart Phones of any kind and no camera phone either. The Apple iPhone is standing on the shoulders of giants and proclaiming themselves originators. They're not. But they are brilliant marketers.

star shooter: Amazing sights indeed but to astronomers, all those areas lit up by night lights is what they call Light Pollution. This cancerous growth is killing the ability to study the Universe with telescopes from areas NOT affected by bright lights. FYI, 4/5 of the world;s population live in the Northern Hemisphere and 4/5 of them do not see, any stars, due to this stupid, paranoidal mindset of having to light up every nook and cranny with lights!

While many of you will poo par this post, ask any amateur or prof. astronomer about Light Pollution. They will tell you that the they are loosing their God given right, to see the Milky Way.

The night shots from Space just goes to tell you just how much waste of energy we are wasting at night. There's no need for this. Many nocturnal species are disappearing due to the growth of light at night. In a generation maybe two, no one will see any stars.

Well said, star shooter. Too many people make light of this situation. Too many people simply don't look up.
