On article DPReview TV: Laowa 20mm F4 'Zero -D' Shift lens review (90 comments in total)

I can't comment since I didn't watch the video ... I just want to say I would have read a written article. Offering video instead of text could have been considered 'modern' twenty years ago, but today it's simply less practical and less efficient.

inframan: The cameras are always new(ish). The shots are just the same-old same-old right out of the 1950s. How about a new paradigm, guys?

Intelligent people understand they are intelligent, but they usually try not to show it. Unintelligent people don't know they are not intelligent, but they usually try to show it.

Welsh: If Americans are really so into ‘health and safety’, maybe they could turn their attention to guns. I am reliably informed that once a firearm is cocked and has a round chambered, simply pressing the trigger causes a metal bullet to fly at great speed from the barrel. This could easily pose a safety risk for anybody the gun is pointed at!

Safe guns? Never heard of those.

Cars too are very dangerous, for people and nature. We should limit their number and their use.

On article DPReview TV: Pentax K-3 Mark III review (595 comments in total)

I suppose there will be a real written review.

Whenever I see the comment 'dated interface' I immediately think that it means 'better interface'. For example, the interface of Photoshop CS2, with its traditional menu system, is in my opinion far superior to the later versions. And it's valid for every piece of software that I know.

Canon says:

So I downloaded it and installed it and it doesn't work. I wish Dpreview had warned me ...

Hard Truth: Glad I don't use film. Kinda wonder why anyone would in these times.

Hard Truth: I searched for 'old' in your recent posts. Here's what I found:
"I guess my comment triggered the OLD people."
"You OLD people don't realize all cameras shoot video now?"
"OLD man. Done expect to "get it" every time a new product is announced."
"You coffin dodging OLD men need to give up photography ..."
I don't blame you. You're so entertaining.

Clint Dunn: Thanks for reminding me of life in the 90's when I shot film and one of the things I don't miss about it...

We don't miss you either.

Kinda wonder why anyone not interested in film would look at threads about film.

Michel Aristegui: Banning someone on 'allegations of inappropriate behaviour' is just plain stupid. Banning someone on conviction of inappropriate behaviour could be considered on the express condition that all the evidence is made public.
Living in America today must be very difficult. I suspect very few Americans know what philosophy is. It's the low level of cultural and historical references that lead to inappropriate behaviour, such as banning someone on allegations of inappropriate behaviour.

In the Middle Ages you had to master 'ars logica' before even trying to understand philosophy or theology. I think that many here should begin there.

The likes of the people who elected Donald Trump don't like a president who studied philosophy. In fact they don't like educated people. It's not an interpretation. It's a fact, reported and documented by most media in the world.

You mean you got Trump in return?

You're right. French TV channels tend to be like their American counterparts. Nevertheless, in the extracts given above, only the fire in Notre-Dame is noteworthy.
Besides, you shouldn't be surprised that the likes of the people who elected Donald Trump behave inappropriately.

By the way I'm living very well in France. Demonstrations occur only once a week, and riots once a month. The people in the streets are the likes of the people who elected Donald Trump. And you shouldn't trust what American TV channels report. They have a slight bias towards the sensational.

You're right. Countries of Northern Europe are even worse than America regarding 'inappropriate behaviour'.

Svetoslav Popov: I haven't had a printed magazine in my hand for maybe 10 years now (and no TV since 2005, but that's another story). The internet changed everything. Why hold on to old, inefficient media?

And, as someone else said, i didn't even know they had a printed magazine. LOL...

> Why hold on to old, inefficient media?

Books and magazines are on the contrary very efficient media. That's why they are all over the place, as someone said above. In fact today the Internet is the only source of information for those who would not read books and magazines if the Internet did not exist. So we can say that the Internet is not a bad thing since it contributes to educate in some way many people who would not have any contact with knowledge otherwise.
