My 'less ancient' Sony P10 has those same bleep and bloops sounds as well!

neo_nights: You know when those rich people buy some exotic animals because they are 'cute' and 'trendy' (as in 'everyone else is doing it') and, after some time, the trend wears off, they realise that that animal should be taken care of (it's not just a 'thing') and then they just abandon it somewhere?

Well, that's Flickr for Yahoo!. Flickr never had a decent treatment from Yahoo! and now it's just being thrown away because Yahoo! failed to take good care of it (Flickr) in the first place.

If Flickr doesn't disappear altogether, I hope it gets bought by some company that will take good care of it.

@joey6pack - Erm... get killed? But some do get adopted. I have a friend of mine that adopted a pug on a very bad shape but she was able to save/heal/shelter/take care of him, fortunately. (I know, it's a dog and not an 'exotic animal', but it's one of those small, 'cute', dogs that some people buy as a toy and then throw away when they realise they don't like taking care of animals)

On article DPReview is hiring! Software development manager (109 comments in total)
In reply to:

DGYu: My initial thought is "Yeah, Mobile APP!", but looks like DPR is getting a new face and some features.

Actually, DPR has been with this face for like.... forever. They hire people for their technical stuff from time to time and they've never ever changed the main 'feeling' of the site.

PeaceKeeper: Fine... I'll do it. But I demand a hefty expense account and airline vouchers.

And a flexible schedule.

VERY flexible.

I may not come in at all.

Thanks for the laugh you both!

On article UPDATED: CP+ 2016: shooting the Pentax K-1 in Yokohama (377 comments in total)
In reply to:

AndroC: "Ricoh got back to us as of March 3, 2016 and has agreed to allow us to publish the K-1 samples here at a resolution of 2000px on the longest side."

Speaking as somebody who is keenly interested in moving to the K1 from my beloved Sony A850, I am disturbed by the question of why Ricoh is restricting resolution on published images. After all, it is only a matter of two or three weeks before the camera is available - are they seriously going to make firmware changes in the short time before that, and produce stunningly much better images? I find this strange. Would it not be more convincing to show the full detail of what this camera may do?

Hey, AndroC!

"But with only a few weeks to go? "
Hhmm... that I cannot tell!

Maybe, as someone else said already, it may be part of a marketing strategy... well, let's just wait for a few weeks unti we can all see the real stuff!
:)

But, let's face it, I barely doubt that the K1 will bring any significant improvement over IQ compared to everything else I've seen. All the cameras today have "good enough" image quality and what makes the difference today are other features; focus speed, handling & operation, price, lenses etc. etc. etc.

Simply because it's still a pre-production camera.

It's safer for PentaCoh to forbid the use of original sized images than to allow them, people getting upset about the "lack of quality" (even though it's clearly stated that the firmware isn't final) and then trying to undo the harm.

IIRC Ricoh isn't the first company to make that decision.

Peiasdf: Ignore the fact the camera module ripped off iPhone's resolution, HTC's UltraPixel and Canon's Dual Pixel, I am sure the result would be great.

I know that Apple is a little bit obsessed (specially with Samsung) about other people "copying" their stuff, but.... copying camera resolution is entirely new for me!

kff: USB 2.0 ? Not 802.11ac ?

I was going to make the very same comment!

Why did the K3 have USB 3.0 and the K1 only USB 2.0?!

So the Butter Beer can be consumed without any special "responsibly" remarks?

On article Apple launches battery case for iPhone 6 & 6s (147 comments in total)
In reply to:

Horshack: I think many would prefer the tradeoff of a slightly fatter iPhone for more battery life than having to resort to aftermarket bolt-ons like this.

Not only iPhones, but smartphones in a general way.

CheersUK: I have to say, with the teasing, it had better be the most awesome DSLR at the most awesome price...something in the realm of Nikon D810 build and features for D610 or rebated D750 price. Anything else will just be, "oh well, another camera released that doesn't offer me enough to change systems".

I have to say, that I do have a soft spot for Pentax...well the Pentax K mount, to be specific. Oh the were the days...

But this fullframe camera IS supposed to top those AF-C abilities of Canikon cameras, right? So if Pentax hasn't done so great until now, they have to show some good improvement.

As for AF-S, at least until the K5 (which I own), there are many, many topics and complaints about focus inacuracies. Even in my own usage, while not terrible nor slow (actually, I never found it to be slow), I did use to miss focus on some shots.

And mind you that when I say that it's "not as good as the competition" it's just that. I'm not saying that it's not good at all, it's useless and things like that.

The weakest spot on Pentax cameras (always?) has been the focusing system. Slow/inaccurate in comparison to the top competitors.

All else: build, weathersealing, handling, menus, image quality etc., you can expect very, very, high standards.

neo_nights: It's a shame that Microsoft won't continue Nokia's work with bigger sensors...

I've read rumors somewhere that a company (Samsung, I guess) is thinking about bringing physical buttons back to cell phones. That would be nice.

But any phone with 6"+ is considered a "phablet", so it's just another category. For me, personally, 5" is more than enough.

Big screen phones? Aren't 5" big enough?
