mailman88: IPhone X...best display. Are you kidding me?
What does a display have to do with a photo after its taken?
I'll take a cellphone with the best detail in low light, over any cellphone with the best display....and that cellphone is the Pixel 2.

Also, it's not true. Samsung makes the iphone OLED Displays.. do you really think they would make better displays for their biggest competitor? Of course not. And they didn't. Samsung S8/Note 8 are still the undisputed kings of smartphone displays. This is not news, it's common knowledge.

Overall this is on Pentax. They've been in the business long enough to know how things are done; Having the best sensor is not enough. You also need to make sure people knows it's the best. Nikon/Sony/Canon all know how to play this game, and know how to get the attention though marketing, and will use any tool at their desposal to sell their features. Pentax marketing team are literally retarded in comparison. They're also, I hear, pretty uncooperative when it comes to loaning their cameras to reviewers. And this is the result.
As a Pentax user, I know this all too well, and it's beyond frustrating, but it is what it is. Also, DXOmark is full of sh*t. But it's not like I believed them much before this screw up, so who cares..

Another gimmick semi-feature will little practical use, made for the non tech-savvy crowd who's willing to believe that having a single knob will somehow boost their productivity.. which it won't.
But don't let facts hold you back. Get one.

LF Photography: No pink one? Shame on you Pentax. You know your pro users have been begging for a pink K-1 for years now. I guess a silver one will have to do... let me just smash my black K-1 with an axe and order the new one.

Wow, thank you for that intelligent comment. It's people like yourself who make me ashamed to be a Pentax user. Did you even bother to check what camera I use, mate?

I remember the release of this trash can Mac, it was just after Steve Jobs died. I also remember the keynote speaker being very smug and proud about Apple's ability to create innovative products after Steve's death... and so they ended up with a terribly shortsighted design which now has to be replaced. Oh, the irony...

Samsung received similar reports with the Note7. They immediately took responsibility, did everything they could to fix it including pulling the product and replacing it... and the media and social networks lynched them for it, making the problem look a thousand times worse than it really was, and seriously damaging Samsung's reputation.
Apple on the other hand simply ignored any reports of a larger issue and replaced the faulty phones when returned. And they're doing just fine.
Moral of the story: When you screw up, lie, deny and shift the blame to your users.
Hopefully Samsung will know better next time.

Yes, because the missing SD card slot is the only reason I won't be buying one... the rest of it is perfect.

A mesmerizing and inspiring video for one of mankind's greatest accomplishments. The slow pace and relaxing music really adds to the mood, and I found myself happily exploring every little part of the ISS. The sheer amounts of technology, logistical planning and imagination that went into this feat of human engineering is simply mind-boggling.

I don't know what's worse; the fact that they made it, or that it will actually sell.
It makes as much sense as a 24-carat gold hand grenade, but I'm sure there is at least one person out there with just the right ratio of rich and stupid who will buy it.

Seriously? I'm supposed to entrust my images to a company that's notorious for shutting down it's services without warning? Nope. Not even if it was the best photo cloud service on the planet. Which it isn't.

On article Google publishes gallery from upcoming Pixel smartphone (156 comments in total)

As much as I want Google to succeed, this is just sad. If this is the best Google can come up with in 2016, they should really stick to software. An ordinary looking phone, with the awkwardly placed fingerprint scanner on the back (try unlocking your phone when it's on a desk), in a ordinary case, and a "me too" 12MP camera with maybe 1% better images. The only thing even remotely special is the better integration of google voice, which is by definition a huge privacy risk, and was made not because people ask for it, but because Google wants to farm more of our data for their advertisers. Next to the S7 and iPhone 7, this is just a embarrassingly bad effort. Don't believe me? Just look at the google "keynote" on this thing... It's the most cringe-worthy thing I've seen this month.

On article Google Panoramio to shut down on November 4 (60 comments in total)

Just another one in a long line of Google's failed experiments. If there's one thing you can count on with Google, it's their unbeatable talent for creating unfinished/unprofitable/unpopular ideas, marketing them as the ultimate solution and then dumping them later on. It happened so many times now I've lost count... This is a prime example of what happens when a corporation, how ever big and powerful, lacks a coherent vision, and ends up just throwing sh*t against a wall to see what sticks. But more importantly, it made me, and a lot of other Google product users very careful when deciding to invest time/money into their new "ideas", as chances are, they won't be here in a few years.

In reply to:

(unknown member): It seems just about everybody can do just about anything via firmware except Canon. :(

Don't worry Canicon users. When it comes to Pentax firmware updates, they're about as bad as it gets. As a matter of fact, I can't recall a feature being added to a Pentax camera until this K-1 FW update. The only FW update that comes from Pentax is a fix when they screw up. And in this age of constant software updates and new features, it will be their undoing.

After comparing the high ISO noise images of the K70 to the competition, I'm left speechless.. It flat out beats everything out there by a mile, including all of the top APS-C DSLR's from Canon/Nikon/Pentax. I have no idea how Pentax pulled this off, but this is a next gen sensor in a budget DSLR body.

Good riddance. I'm surprised Yahoo lasted this long. Their search engine has been irrelevant for almost 15 years now and in that time Yahoo learned absolutely NOTHING from their mistakes, making one bad decision after another for years. Flickr is the only Yahoo service I use, and even it is far from ideal.

On article Pentax K-1 Review (2644 comments in total)

Reading through the comments, it would appear as though everyone on DPR is a professional sports/wildlife photographer in desperate need of lightning quick auto-focus tracking... which just isn't true. As a Pentax K-3II user who shoots landscape, portrait, night club events and weddings, I find the AF to be fast and precise for all but the most challenging tracking situations, which occur maybe 1% of the time. For the other 99%, it's a non-issue. And since the K-1's AF is even better, I seriously doubt anyone but the seasoned sports/wildlife pro's will have any issues with it.

In reply to:

Jim Salvas: Publicity stunt. He could easily have developed a random sample of rolls to see if this is worthwhile. The few images he has shown look like rank amateur snaps. On the other hand I recently saw a gallery show of similar quality.

Yet another crowd-funding scam, perfectly choreographed to fool the naive, emotional and nostalgic into giving money away. This time with a photography theme.
Well played.

P.S. I find it hilarious so many people actually believe they developed only one roll of film.

Good luck with the project!

Ever since I bough the S7 my DSLR's are seeing a lot less use. For daytime photography and web use, it's almost indistinguishable from my DSLR, all without all the pain of lugging the body and lenses around and with the added benefit of fast sharing and great editing software on the go. The colors and WB OOC are amazing. It even shoots RAW if needed. Not to mention the video recording is better than 95% of DSLR's out there (if done right). The only things I loose are zoom capability, resolution (which is irrelevant for web use) and bokeh, which IMO is overrated.
Sure, I still take my DSLR's for important or low light shoots, but as an everyday camera, the S7 wins every time.
