Richphoto: Totally rebadged Mint 70tl. What kind of BS is Rollei trying to hand us? Crowdfunding, WTH. Just put a Chinese made Rolliflex name plate on the existing camera.

....... thanks for that, makes one pretty cynical, i would have believed otherwise .... mind you a "proper" company crowd funding is pretty lame ........ hard to imagine they could have not done something slightly more respectable with the name, surely Samyang or someone would have taken the logo, and they could have pretended to check the designs against their quality standards or something .....

Peacock's Tail. Although any of the Peahens who have looked twice at me along the way, would not have realised what a fancy tail it was ..........

Reinhard136: if they halved the price they might sell 20% more cameras.

Yeah, sorry, i thought the intent of the initial post was pretty obvious, but clearly not for everyone. But you did get there ..... or maybe you knew, and are just trying to wind me up ..... hard to tell ...... if so you are lucky you got me on an argumentative day .... :-)

It would be wouldn't it, Nobel Prize in Economics for you son, it is called the Price Elasticity of Demand , and i think Leica are all too aware of where they stand along the curve . You might like to check out the Dunning Kruger effect too.

On article Hands-on with the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ (61 comments in total)

is it as slippery as the note 8 ? i thought that was a trivial complaint until i had to live with it ...... mostly solved if it lives in a case ..... but then why not build the case into the phone to make it more durable, and more compact than a phone plus case ?

if the U.S. were a person, they would be recieving treatment for paranoid schizophrenia, but in prison, where they would be doing time for robbery with violence, and manacled because the previous psychiatrist got head butted ..... might be a few other countries in there too ... but the U.S. cell would have a guard ay the door.

One conspiracy theory goes that the likes of PETA and Sea Shepard are or have been infiltrated by False Flaggers out to make their causes look ridiculous. This case makes that sound more plausible. Makes it a lot easier to walk past their collectors in the street .....

Paul B Jones: How is Canon doing? Still in business?

....... most unlikely , but may not be all bad : cessna stopped building light aircraft and created a vibrant light industry in the vacuum , Rollei, Practika, Contax ( Leica :-) ) , got out of the industry and let the more progressives flourish ....... Northern Light got out of the way of Google ...... etc
....... still chuckling about Canon president saying they only use the best available sensor in their cameras ....... if he were born in U.S. he could run for Pres.

retr01976: Save money on your wedding, skip hiring a photographer and tell everyone to take pictures with their phones and upload them to a centralized photo hosting service. Yes you won't get some of the pretty formal shots, but you will get a great selection of incredible memories that photographers miss. Those formal shots are nice for a while and make a few great framed pictures, but those casual phone shots are fun and tell a story from many different perspectives. Just my 2 cents, I wasted money on a pro and regret it.

........ worked out ok in the end ..... iit is probably good there are no happy photos now ......

GlobalGuyUSA: Hey SAMSUNG & SONY -- can you team up and put a Cellphone in an RX100 V? You see, I only want to carry one heavy thing in one pocket, since I got my keys in the other. Set your differences aside and do the thing.

Yours truly,

Make me a Samsung-Sony RX100 V Galaxy phone.

Amazing this has not happened yet ..... panasonic came close, but why not go all the way ?

The problem is that when one person dies on a train track everyone sees it and passes judgement, when many more die from not having a sense of proportion, or live meaningless lives devoid of responsibility and common sense it goes unreported. Stay in bed ....... no trains there, even though that is where most people die.
