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 ?

Photographers react with outrage at DP reviews beat up story supporting the nanny state.

Please re- title it : some photographers react with outrage .

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.

Click bait. Would not have been a story if the title were correct, judge says " an action commenced in incorrect court."

On article Fast Five: Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V Review (427 comments in total)

hmmm, "best in class" ..... but silver ? at the olympics, if you come first, you get a gold, especially if you lap your competitors, as does the sony. The review is very thorough, and brings up interesting points on a more or less scientific basis, so is the final rating more a rating of the reviewer or the editors ? ie. showing where they are coming from in terms of non technical/brand appeal/ commercial/emotional issues ?

Reinhard136: sack your marketing people pentax, you are just annoying people now. i felt guilty leaving you, but you are making it easier with these antics.

yeah maybe i would have waited a little longer if a had a cupboard of ff lenses, and did not need to move on . My sympathy to pentax/richo for their situation, and good on 'em for sticking with it, and i hope the die hards will be rewarded.

On article What's missing? Ming Thein on the state of mirrorless (744 comments in total)

One thing i like to keep in mind as the world pontificates on things like "what is wrong with mirrorless" , i think it has more to do with where people have come from, than a balanced nad objective view of results and usability. A bit like a sparkling wine is judged by how close it is to champagne, only because champagne was the early dominant player. A simple test is to ask, if the world had never had dslr's and mirrorless were the norm, would the person who invents the DSLR, which requires less battery changes, and has a different button layout, is a bit quicker on sports shots etc, end up founding a dynasty that eats into the mirrorless market ...... or is just an interesting idea that almost made its quota on kick starter ?

On article Second time lucky? A closer look at Sony's new RX1R II (543 comments in total)

Viewfinder terrific, but pop up flashes are excellent, almost essential for a pocket camera. Some screw on front lens elements would be wonderful, a 24 and maybe a 7o converter ?

Should farm out the camera body design to Sony too.

On article Light L16 packs 16 cameras into a single portable body (397 comments in total)

Camera's used to collect pictures. Now it is more obvious that they collect data. Quantity and an accurate description of the actual bits is more important than how much it looks like a picture in the raw. That can be fixed later.
I suppose it is the logical progression of where photo processing software can take us. Maybe back to pinhole cameras one day...... multiple pinholes ? .....

Reinhard136: It doesn't make you want to invest in conventional camera companies or their products in a big way does it ? Whether this one works or not, it does make it more than imaginable that in 5 or 10 years the companies on top of the heap now, or that cupboard full of their products, will look as valuable as an old film camera does now ...... and worse, with a bit of clever computing, it may not require any break thru technology, just the nous to go and get a bundle of 1/3 sensors and some fixed lenses or something similar.

Nokia ? Didn't they used to make gumboots or phones ? Maybe not a good example. :-) . It would be interesting to compare their share price history with Apple's one day. But agreed the Sony's and Canons are pretty heavily diversified, and have a head start in adapting/buying out/completing. Companies like Nikon may be more of a one trick pony though ......
