gail: ''Canon USA no longer lists the EOS M on their website, so it seems unlikely that the lens would see distribution in the US.''

If this is true, then Canon played US photographers for fools by selling their EOSM cameras at firesale prices then abandoning us. I'm stuck with an EOSM brick and apparently won't even be able to by the telephoto lens I like to have since it apparently won't be available in the US. I've been purchasing Canon cameras for close to two decade, but I doubt I will buy another Canon. There are a lot of other fine choices out there.

bluevellet, my purchase wasn't because I was strapped for cash. Everyone likes to buy something at a good price. There are many people who like the EOSM and I researched it before buying, knowing full well the pros and cons of the camera. You only have too look at the photos by folks like Marco Nero to know it's a decent camera. I've found it to have exceptional image quality. My problem is with Canon, not the EOSM.

67gtonr, I buy almost everything online. So you shouldn't open your virtual mouth when you don't know what you're talking about. What I've never done is purchased a lens directly from another country and I don't do ebay. Got burned once and that was enough for me!!

LJohnK2: ....well by and large the journalistic quality of reporting has been in the ditch for quite a while....so now the photographic quality will follow....all very sad

Sadly, much of the general public hardly notices and, I think, it will only get worse as the dumbing down of society continues.

On article Samsung Galaxy S3 Camera Review (55 comments in total)

You recommend a case so the GS3 isn't so slippery when taking photos. I bought the Samsung Flip Cover Case ($40!), which covers the camera lens and flash when the case is fully open. I can't decide whether this is a good or not. It does give the camera so extra stability, but it's also awkward to use.

On article At last: Snapseed for Android! (39 comments in total)

I tried Snapseed on my Nexus 7. Very nice and it has an interesting interface. However, I much prefer Pixlr Express by Autodesk.

photo perzon: This is a great opportunity to moderate and censor the mean language and bullies that have been posting in the forums. There are members using bad words and mean comments that do not belong in this fine website.

What do you expect when the site owners (Amazon) allow and tolerate the unrelenting vitriol spew as it does in the Off Topic Forum?!

Who are the moderators anyway? What's the big secret? Other forums lets participants know who they are!

Stunning photo! well deserved first place win.

Maybe I've missed it but are you going to let people edit their posts more than once? I've participated in many forums though the years, and all have allowed multiple-edits except dpreview.

It's about time you added a WYSIWYG text editor. Thank you!

Interesting possibilities as a spycam, if the shutter button sound and any focus-assist light can be shut off.

I wonder if someone was wearing one at Prince Harry's Vegas party. :P

On article Canon Powershot S110 hands-on preview (107 comments in total)

The image for the s110 under Latest Reviews show the S110/S400 Digital Elph, which I believe is about a decade old!

The zoom range is 24 – 120 mm, not 24-100 mm as you wrote in the summary above. And the specs list it as having a Fully articulated LCD.

I can't believe they took away the ridge grip.

Yes, boooooring! I, too, was hoping for a larger sensor like the RX100.

Oh, and I think the S is now renowned it's faulty lens assembly. My S100 had to be repaired twice in less than two weeks.

On article Review: Nokia 808 PureView (349 comments in total)

Very impressed by the image quality. Pretty soon I'll be able to get rid of my small digital camera and cell phone. Handbag is getting very heavy. My next purchase will be a Nokia PureView 808, or something like it. I can't wait. Fine job, Nokia!
