No viewfinder? No good.
What is it with camera manufacturers? Don't they read the comments on DP Review?

Question from a newbie. You've got the lens extended. It starts raining on the barrel of the lens. You retract the lens. How is the water prevented from getting into the body?

Not a very gripping camera.

In reply to:

HarryLally: An excellent range of landscape shots. The posters should be very proud. Personally, I'm rather pleased that you didn't post the camera/ lens/ FL and aperture info. This thread should be about the photos, not kit.

Everybody likes the Ricoh shot.

In reply to:

turvyT: dpr is just against Pentax. Or they favor other brands, word it as you want. I'm not a Pentax user or a Pentax fan (Leica and Hassel user), but that's simply obvious. It would be interesting to know why.

On article CP+ 2016: Hands-on with new Sigma SD cameras and lenses (313 comments in total)
In reply to:

Skipper494: Why are left eyed people complaining, when obviously the EFV has been put in the middle to accommodate either eye? Personally, I'd never buy another camera with the EVF in the middle, which is why I have a NEX 7 and a Fuji X-E2. Anyway, these new Sigmas are 1/2 pound too heavy and appear to be rather cumbersome, like the previous Sigmas. This article is supposed to be hands on, but only in photos apparently. However, if I had fewer cameras and were younger and curious as ever, I'd probably buy one to play with.

Why don't all cameras look like binoculars?
Oh right, pirates would complain.

Why Fujifilm?
Any suggestions for a different name for the company?

Too big for Vueling.
Manufacturers seemingly cannot build small, wheeled, European carry-on sized bags with backstraps. What do they do all day?

Pippo50: Ho acquistato da poco la fuji xe1, la qualità delle immagine è molto buona anche a 3200 iso, la messa a fuoco è un po' lenta rispetto alla mia Nikon D90,
quando mi segnala il verde la messa a fuoco corrisponde , ho acquistato successivamente oltre al 18-55 il 55-200 una buona ottica, ma ho rilevato un po' di gioco nell' incastro dell'ottica nella sua sede, nel complesso sono soddisfatto.

You are Italian-challenged.

OnTheWeb: If Obama wore these would he be able to speak Austrian? No. Not even Google could pull that off.

Obama is clearly not a Muslim as he now seems to be a relative of the Habsburgs.

In reply to:

gulffish: Another view, based on thread count today:

1. Nokon D800 223,606
2. Olympus E-M5 52,216
3. Sony RX100 42,264
4. Canon EOS 5D Mark III 4,582

Too bad there isn't a way to limit votes to those who have actually owned the camera they vote for.

Pentax made a mistake in the name. Should be 'Fireball XL5'.

In reply to:

XmanX: Thanks, but no thanks. I have no interest in replacing the sensor in my faulty X10.

In a few years, my White Orb monster will become a special collector's item that I intend to sell for significant profit. To preserve it well, I have just ordered the Fuji leather carrying case.

I really hope you - and all the other X10rb purchasers will get a free replacement camera courtesy of Fujifilm. It's the least they can do.
