Nicely done. Thanks for the walk-around.

Dollar for dollar, the Pentax K1 doesn't look too shabby either :-)

Maybe what's unprecedented is that Yashica never made a clip-on lens for smartphones, and this is the first unprecedented one for future sale.

Only from the mind of DPreview.
Bravo, guys.

On article Ricoh Theta V hands-on (32 comments in total)

It's hard to say if we'll ever see such tech in Ricoh's DSLR's, seeing that they're making use of the mighty little processor, I'd say the company is trying in a good direction. I wonder where it can go from here?

"You'd never know it by looking at it, but the guts of the Theta V have changed dramatically. It's now Android-based and uses the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor as many midrange smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S8. This gives the Theta V an immense amount of processing power, and the use of Android makes the device more extensible than before. Ricoh is promising a firmware update that will speeds up file transfer speeds by doing all the image stitching in the camera (rather than while copying data) while also adding a wireless client mode."

Saurat: Looks really cheap and nasty. Fuji uses a classy graphite finish, but this looks like it dropped out of a breakfast cereal box.

Paint it black. Cue the music.

On article Leica TL2 first impressions (382 comments in total)

Mike Johnston over at TOP says the TL2 is a copy of the Japanese NEX 7. Hows that for turnabout?

On article Throwback Thursday: Canon IXUS 50 / SD400 Digital ELPH (64 comments in total)

Cool, I had a canon point and shoot years ago and liked it, an A3... or something... and I really liked it, tho' it wasn't' so svelte as this ixus... does canon make something roughly like it now, really compact etc? Thanks :-)
Edit: I like that it had a little viewfinder, more like a little window :-P but that made it pretty useful to me.... Unless I'm wrong I think canon stopped making any with that type of viewfinder.

Assuming there are no decentered lenses? There must be one heck of an algorithm to correct for up to 16.

In reply to:

solarider: This is perhaps the most interesting image so far (moving sequentially from first place and looking through to here).
It leaves more questions unanswered than answered.
Is she wearing a gauze or something sheer over face and neck?
Is there something used to cover the skin to keep from the burning sun? What did she use? Intriguing, lovely face.

Must be much more to the story of Thanaka from an herbal and historical view as well.
Congrats again on your fine image.
Best Wishes.

I'm looking forward to the completed review. Thank you, everyone, at DPReview for your great work. :-)

Pretty much most of all of movies, TV, advertising and more is made-up bits and pieces of unreality.

Didn't Sir S pen "All the world's a stage"?

Why now to take yourself so seriously? ;-P

Nice info!
I'd like to compare with Pentax K-1, but don't see K-1 in the drop down menus.
Thanks.
