On article SanDisk 1TB SDXC card prototype unveiled at Photokina (94 comments in total)

"..eliminating the worry that we may miss a moment because we have to stop to swap out cards."

What we still need is advancement in battery technology. Without having to resort to an additional battery grip which isnt available for all cameras anyway, batteries are the limiting factor before the card fills up.

All very nice images but Fishermen did nothing for me. I think 3rd place should have won.

A few good photos, a few great photos worthy of being chosen. #6 is "nice", but isnt in the same league. #12 I like jellyfish but this one is unfinished - reflection needs editing out, darken the background a bit and boost vibrance of the jellyfish because it looks dull.

All great photos. Image 2 is a spectacular shot. Feel the rumble.

illogical: What a mistake, I thought DPreview stands for Digital Photography Review.

I appreciate any review that has any link in the photography process. Including bags and clothing.
Iif DPR did a review on hiking shoes, that would also be relevant. A very important piece of gear for the off-track landscape photographer.

Great photos. Congrats to all entrants.
As for the "entry level" cameras, put one in the hands of a creative person and you'll get much more interesting photos than a "pro" camera in the hands of someone who shoots cliche's.
"Pro's" beware.

On article Tamron announces new 1.4X and 2X teleconverters (15 comments in total)

1.4x turns the 150-600mm into a 210-840mm. Will be interesting to see whether the 1.4x performs better than the 2x. 1200mm is very tempting though.
edit: oh, MF using viewfinder with the 2x. Stick with the 1.4x.

The quality is excellent. I'd like this performance in a smaller form factor.. which will double the price. Cant win.

Brilliant.

These are awesome. Only just in the last week I was wondering: Google Maps has photospheres, how about videospheres? Now we see them here. The quality will come, I'm sure.

Thanks to other posters, this explains the situation much better.
I prefer Spencer's now.

Pfaffenbach has the better shot. Much clearer shot of the grinning face. Do we know what cameras/lenses they both used?

A lot of good choices here. A few I didnt like so much, but some brief narrative always helps an audience to share your enthusiasm for a shot, ie. Where the shot was taken, what the shot is about and what the shot means to you.
I really like the idea of favourite shots. I dont think this should be an annual thing. Thanks

8K? I'd be happy if we ever get a good steady amount of 1080i here in Australia. We've only recently embraced 1080i and even then a lot of content is still 576i.

That's an awesome shot. Beautiful vista.
What are the containers? The forklift looks too small to stack/remove them?

Gorgeous photos but i dislike the cotton look. This is certainly subjective. I like the last photo #9 as its a nice balance of motion and splash.
