raylob: Canon will stop at nothing to get us to buy an expensive spare battery!

Karroly!
My browser showed to fast initially rather then too fast. So please accept my apologies. But the serious side of my poor British joke was that canon batteries are very expensive. Bon soir!

OK perhaps my joke is not that good but neither is your spelling!

Aliens of course!

This company continues to disgrace itself. In the old (film) days it had a top notch reputation but now it is a joke!

On article Sigma announces dp1 Quattro and LVF-01 loupe (200 comments in total)

I'm running out of room. I have the 3 Merrills but can't find space for 3 more quattros. Interchangable lenses on one body would have been nice!

Irrespective of shape, size, handling, speed or colour ultimately image quality is what counts and Sigma delivers. I am happy with that!

On photo IMG_8774 in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (2 comments in total)

There is just nothing special about these images that would entice me to go out and buy this camera. I'll hang on to my present Canon 7D for now.

We may poke fun of the colour but beneath that toyish look is one seriously good camera!

jsandjs: There is a voice detector missing. For instance, whenever an OMG was heard, a picture was taken.

How about "on" and "off" command?

No good to anyone if it is unaffordable!

On article Hasselblad responds to Lunar criticisms (613 comments in total)

We all seem to be experts on camera design judging by the critical comments made here. Hassy should ask us to submit our designs for their appraisal. Winner gets the production camera for nothing. The other submitted designs should be made public and laughed at!

Suggest he contact Mark Newson for advice who designed the K-01! Seriously, contrary to the many critics, who whine about lack of viewfinder and its brick like build the Pentax K-01 is a joy to use. Coupled with the superb IQ this camera is hard to beat. Not a problem on a long vacation at all!
