It's used now, so why not offer to purchase it at a lower price? 😉

I did tell mine a wide angle would help her look smaller, but i really don't think she bought into that one ;)

In an age where cars seem to be getting higher, it would be an interesting idea if the wheels slid forward and backwards to all the car to be lowered to ground hieght to add a different perspective and capture all the images sitting so high up will cause you to miss.

2eyesee: Has Canon officially abandoned the G1X line? A G1X Mk III with an updated (nearly) APS-C size sensor and improved video would be the kind of camera that would interest me. Instead all we are is this proliferation in the 1" sensor market.

A G1XIII with built in EVF would be a winner, for me

angus rocks: not much luv for my Sammy around here, hunh? i guess they stiffed a lot of people with the NX-!, and it's pay-back time.

Samsung have lost lot of customers support in recent years, first they backed out of their collaboration with Pentax in favour of their own native Mirrorless mount. Then closed their Camera Division down after launching several very good cameras and some impressive lenses. Then the debacle over the new Note mobiles has done nothing to fuel customer confidence or trust. Which is a shame as i liked their NX1 and almost swapped systems before they bailed.

Makes you wonder if Kodak had gone into the Mobile phone market they might of survived better.

DPR do you think it's time to start looking at a different website for this sort of thing?

A photographer has skills, they scout locations by walking many miles hiking and carrying equipment they may use or not need. Often in inhospitable conditions waiting patiently for the perfect light to use their filters, select the right lens and settings. And take pride in the image they have created.

Yet with Photoshop someone sitting at home grabbing images online in a nice warm surroundings can knock up an image that might sell better or be commercially more appealing and has not done much more than get up to make a coffee. Can be rewarded for breath taking images, that their only skill was sitting and being able to manipulate images.

If we all just start using Photoshop or other software to create an image, what need is there in a website like yours which reviews equipment and provides a forum for sharing advice. Helping those of us that enjoy the outdoors or mingle with crowds search out unusal places and put in the effort to capture something special?

The answer is none and you are effectively putting yourselves and thousands of others out of business. I know these things are progress but do we really need technology that removes these processes of creativeness?

Thoughts: I am a little uncomfortable that they didn't think it was a liberated Japan.

A beautiful piece of work though. Much prettier than any today's Nikon DSLR.

Japan Las liberated it was defeated, after accepting the US terms. The people were as a vast majority prepared to fight and die to the last person. Unlike the liberation of Iraq.

Really? It was the USA, i can believe someone actually asked that question.

26.5 is very wide, I'd actually be happier if the next phone i get has a 35 or better still a 50mm equivalent lens.

I was taking a photo the other day and I'm surprised no one has done an app that allows a user to select digital version of 35 & 50 and possibly an 85mm option. A bit like how the Fuji X70 offers digital versions of other focal lengths instead of guessing with a crude zoom

norman shearer: That 2-way flippy screen is genius. Photogs are known to make/or not make purchases solely on their screen preference between fully articulated and tilt. Now both camps should be satisfied. Until now only the Pentax K-1 was unique..

Fuji and Pentax Both Flip Left, Right, and Tilt Up and Down Sony only does tilting up and down.

maljo@inreach.com: Very interesting! The future is coming whether we like it or not. Imagine the world when we can control machines with our thoughts.

Or machines control us? In certain aspects of life they already do.

When I see things like this, it makes me want to go back to using 35mm film.

On article ESPN publishes iPhone 7 Plus photos from US Open (341 comments in total)

There is a place for iphones and all mobile phones it would be nice to see more options to add lenses like a ultra wide or short telephoto to these phones so you can get a bit more use and fun using them. My biggest surprise is no major camera manufacture has yet got into bed with a phone manufacture to produce the camera unit. The Leica?Huawei is not the sort of link up i mean.

In reply to:

straylightrun: Why can't Fujifilm make this a pancake lens like the Canon 22mm f/2? Is it because they intentionally made it big so as to not cannibalize their x100 line?

Yes the x100 line is very profitable for fuji
