brn: Does it also transmit your data to China?

We keep throwing our money at companies like this.

SmilerGrogan: He was a monumental dude...In the course of shooting naked people and scenesters he changed what we accept as art photography; ironically the average DPReview member will miss the significance of the film because we'll be too busy trying to read the engraving on the lenses to see what focal length he used.

People may not know what kind of paint Leonardo da Vinci used on Mona Lisa.

But we all remember how it looks.

If Venus Optics will honour the deal I pay via kickstart, it will be great... They took the money and missed part of the deal and never reply my email.

Francis Sawyer: No way would I buy a computer now, when its processor will be hobbled by software workarounds for Spectre and Meltdown.

Intel hasn't promised to make pin-compatible replacements for current processors (not to mention that Apple, with its continually degraded construction, has probably soldered them in anyway), so you're buying a flawed architecture that will never be allowed to run at full performance.

Tell me, how many people you know in the world had been affect but the bug? AFAIK, there is no active virus for these bugs. I am not sure it should not be worry. But just avoid to buy a computer when you need it is a bit overkill.
I know the patch will make it slower. But I am not sure if I need the patch at all. Unless you use Windows

Sirandar: It would have been really interesting being in the meeting where this project got terminated for "budget" reasons.

Perhaps the navy couldn't find a bullet proof method of preventing the video stream from being hacked and posted on YouTube.

Perhaps the Navy doesn't like video evidence that can be requested by military and civilian governments and show up in court. Destroying data is such a messy process. The order to destroy data absolutely identifies it as having $$$$$$$$$ value...

Perhaps they made them with Chinese hardware, and need to start again from scratch....

No matter what it was it was a huge waste of taxpayers dollars ......

Remember they cut the budget and want to retire one of most useful and powerful war plane A10 in the middle east wars? DOD rather throw money into the F35 money pit than keep the most useful close ground plane. It is cheap to run, low maintenance cost, abundance and most effective.
F35 on the other hand, can't do good job in art combat, too fast for ground support and super expensive to build and maintenance.
I wonder how much it will cost to keep the photo program going? Just cut some desk jobs in Pentagon will be more than enough to support the program.

gordzam: For real macro shots, I find Canon's MP-E65mm is hard to beat. Just put it on the cheapest DSLR body and even a single diffused 430EX can give great results. Lighting technique in macro is quite challenging, but once you start to understand how light behaves, you can get excellent results with a much cheaper set up. My shots on flickr:

Great works.
How can you approach without scared off the bugs?
When I move in within with my camera and tripods, my hands shake like a falling leaf, the bugs are long gone. And it just take me too much time to focus.

FafBill: Years ago there was a popular video commercial. I am a bit foggy on this. A young girl had a butterfly on her nose for several seconds. Then it flew away. Days later, I learned the trick to force a butterfly to remain stationary (on a human nose!!!) for a few seconds.
The photographer had a collection of butterflies. Each rested in it own compartment stored for a brief period in a refrigerator. There is a limit on how long a bug can survive in a cold fridge. There is also a limit on how long the bug or butterfly will remain stationary after being exposed to warm air.

@James, sorry about the typo. #notsosorry

VadymA: Tried to photograph some red ants the other day, boy they are fast moving. Couldn't catch anything in focus. I used 1 inch sensor compact and still the DOF was just too shallow. Will try my P&S for comparison next time but don't keep my hopes high. Should I try using bait food to slow them down?

A dead ant is a good ant. They can't smile anyway.

thoth22: Chances are I will never see Dunkirk - correct. I'm not much of a fan of military propaganda.

propaganda?
The film is based on real history. Do you think apiece of well documented history is propaganda?

Dimit: ''Popularity'' means ''selling more units''. No? So,editor's error. Samsung is the most ''popular''....

@drivecancel Samsung outsell Apple Just for a few months in 2016. But this is mainly because telephone companies provide heavy rebate for customer. Even Samsung/Android outsell Apple a lot. However, Apple still make much more money than Samsung and other company, thanks for the Apple tax. Apple's margin is way too high.

@GregWPhoto that is the best part. Actually, most big companies do the same thing. Find a low tax rate country, like Ireland, to register for tax purpose. But this is the EU thing and this is why it is not working.

Yes, Samsung sell more smartphone. But when you look at top of the line smart smartphone, where iPhone belongs, Apple is sell way more than Samsung. When you check the profitability, Apple earns way way more than Samsung. You have to know, the low/mid range smartphone is not really making money. After all, Samsung and other smartphone maker is mainly selling low/mid end phone.

LaurenceSvirchev: re: RAW files. Many media commentators are promoting this aspect of the phone camera, but I see nothing in Apple's promotional material about this. If it is true, then the default application for downloading is Apple's "Photos," which right now is a jpg file. So how will we get a RAW file out of the iPhone 7? I san upgrade of Photos being planned for the release of the iphone 7?

I'd like to see dpreview journalists doing a bit more investigation before they join the herd & pronounce joyous news.

Apple will add/bring back more feature for the stupid and useless Photo (OSX) app. The earlier version of Photo is just better.
One of the most important feature of smartphone is using the 3rd party app. I am sure some photo app is working on the RAW thing.
