I understand it, but it really is moronic.

Whatever makes you happy.

Lot of truths here about photography but none of them really apply.

The problem is that there is no ad money coming in to pay for good staff and gear, and so it's unfortunately game over.

I don't like it, but the next issue at the paper is going to be whether it will fold or not.

BingoCharlie: There's already a very nice version of this camera available: the Pentax Q with the 01 Prime Lens. Same size. Great design. Demonstrated quality. Similar pricing. Plus you have interchangeable lenses so the camera can grow with you. Hard to see why someone should choose this over the Q.

I dunno, Charlie. Dinner?

Cameras always make me think of dinner. ;-)

The Q weighs almost twice as much. Not in the same class (if there is a class!)

Will this phone be able to download upgrades to the Android OS, such as Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) or Jelly Bean (4.1)?

On article Samsung releases 12MP EX2F 'Smart Camera' (370 comments in total)

You know, if you do the 1/1.7" sensor right, it's all you need unless you want to make prints bigger than 11 x 14 and inspect them with your nose to the print.

The 1/1.7" sensor lets you do good stuff with the lens and not have a giant body.

Look at the excellent IQ of the Nikon Coolpix P7100 for that class of cameras, and the range of its lens. I don't want to start another IQ war on this. There are other examples of good use of the 1/1.7" sensor.

Let's stay reasonable with our uses of these cameras.

It will be interesting to see if DIGIC 5 controls the CA found in the Elph 310 and others of that ilk.

On article Just posted: Hands-on video of the Samsung NX200 (76 comments in total)

Very good, and the voice is perfect. You don't want the voice to be a distraction from the excellent video.

Only change I would suggest is to keep the hands away from the front of the camera at the start.

On article Street Photographers test freedom to shoot in London (184 comments in total)

Absolutely fascinating.

I think the rule of law is alive and well in London, in that the police were rational, balanced, and acting in accordance with the law.

The property manager were not too bad, considering they are not legal experts.

Given what terrorism can do without warning, it's a tough call, and I think everyone came off reasonably well in this instance.
