Wye Photography: The one thing that really outrages me is how easily people are outraged.

This conversation makes me feel unsafe. coddle me now!

I'm outraged! ... well, not really....at all. Good grief, I wish I could find the energy to get "outraged!" about numbing "issues" like this.

msheikh921: hmmmm... this site has demonstrated that crop factor MUST be accounted for in aperture equivalency, yet a lot of people in the comments still compare the "weight" of the panasonic's "f/2.8" lens to full frame ones........

love the GH5; getting one!! but just felt that point should brought up for the sake of comparison accuracy.

So what is the 4/3rds 2.8 is equivalence in a "C" sensor?
Perhaps, with 5-axis stabilization, the 4/3 sensor might be quite close to the APS-C performance.

Will be interesting to get the price on these things. At this point, I just can't buy a 4gb model of any Windows machine...so only interested in the top model.
I notice that there is no built-in dock for the S-pen....requiring one of those fabric loops to hold it.

BfSkinner: Gosh, another award winning photo gallery ... and as usual, thankfully absent of those yucky European types.

Oh my....I'm a special snow flake, you just gave me a death threat??? I'll go put this on my Progressive Blog and start a gofundme page to help with my stress!

utphoto: Great post. Here's a link to more detail about that grim time in American history. Are we on the way to repeating it with the hate and vitriol being raged against immigrants today?
http://hyperallergic.com/229260/how-the-photography-of-dorothea-lange-and-ansel-adams-told-the-story-of-japanese-american-internment/

Well, I always put myself on the other foot. If I lived in, say, Japan....and the U.S. began bombing Japan, I would FULLY UNDERSTAND why the Japanese people might want to keep an eye on me. They are not engaging in a "hate crime"...they are merely trying to shut all possibilities of additional threats.
Yes, I would be truly troubled by the situation, but it's how life sometimes happens.
Ok Americans, back to our favorite past time: self flogging!

Because of who this guy is (more specifically, what he has had access to), I would love to see his photos. The artful photos are nice, but I'd like to see ALL of them....even the willy nilly snap shots....especially from his time in the 60's and 70's.

Can the image processing be easily altered to avoid some of the iPhone artifacts and over-processing?

BfSkinner: Does the use of the LCD "live view" screen result in reduced focusing speed (or effectiveness)?
I'm referring to still photography...not video.
As I recall, the D7100 "live view" resulted in reduced performance.

Ha....no, but I am a behaviorist.

On article Samsung launches first removable UFS memory cards (177 comments in total)

Would this type of storage be usable as the actual "hard drive" in new, cheap PCs?
They would certainly take up nearly zero space!

On article Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV Review (1579 comments in total)

For the first time, I handled this camera at the local Best Buy. Even though there are plenty of photos of the camera within this review, I was shocked at the incredibly teeny tiny size. I was hoping it was small enough, actually, but found myself thinking that it was almost too small! My hands felt almost bunched-up as I tried to manipulate the camera. Looking forward to the next, updated version! soon, I hope!

Alex Permit: This reads like a google translation of a japanese press release. Is the english language market so small that they can't afford a single native english language speaker in their marketing department?

North Americans and Northern Europeans are obsessed with demonstrating their willingness to self flog, and/or demonstrate "open mindedness".... they love to get offended FOR other people, too!
Even the most subtle things can be leveraged for maximum "I'm offended" status.
Their favorite theme is: The U.S. isn't the center of the world!

dark goob: It has FANS inside it? FANS? In a tablet? WTƒ?

I'm mystified. This is supposed to compete with iPad somehow?

<shakes head>

I'd be surprised if it survived for a year. It's not even solid state! It has moving parts INSIDE! FANS! lolol

The Macbook has no fan. The lowest Surface Pro 4 with the m3 processor reportedly has no fan.

Early orders are accepted in a week.... so, when do actual orders / deliveries tend to take place after that?

At least it's not dripping with gold.
For my taste, the black DF is a great looking camera.
I remember when Canon film cameras began getting the curvy, rounded design... I thought it was horrible....a cheap attempt at looking modern.

Zeisschen: they can now make it unlimited cause nobody is buying their phones...

I'm a big fan of OneDrive for two reasons:
1) With the subscription, you get lots of storage (and now even more) AND the latest Office suite at all times....all on multiple computers....and the software suite is actually useful and essential to almost everyone.
2) Their storage system uses actual FOLDERS... not "albums" or "sets" which are clumsy when you want to download chunks of photos all at once.
