FrankS009: Canadians have nothing to be proud of. Japanese Canadians also were interred, and often their property was confiscated.

SteB: good point.
Barty .L. I hope we have come a distance from the racism of those days, but that seems to be wishful thinking.

In reply to:

zakaria: This capable and beautiful camera deserves a full frame sensor or APS-C sensor.

Its the old FF/APS-C snobbery thing again.

And its another old thing - if it was APS-C or FF, the lenses would be a LOT bigger and heavier, especially the longer ones.

It all depends on what you shoot whether the sensor works for you or not.

Went to the Phase One event in Toronto where Tim spoke. A lot more to his presentation than "just" mountain photography.

I just bought the old MacBook Pro before I learned about the new one. Lets just say I'm not as regretful as I thought I would be. Not only are extra adapters and dongles a pain, but they are a money grab.

Alberto Tanikawa: As much as I like Manfrotto products, I'm not a fan of soft cases. The exterior material always gets chewed up by concrete or other pavement materials, and becomes torn. I understand hard cases are heavier, but I can just muscle my way up stairs without worry of tearing the exterior fabric material. Even if these resolve the bottom wear problem, zippers and the whole soft case deform much sooner than a hard case.

And soft cases may be more susceptible to wee creatures in hotel rooms.

You mentioned the Panasonic G1 off the top, and the EOS M5 reminded me of that camera before you mentioned it. A compliment to Canon. But the Canon tele lenses are going to be much bigger and heavier. APS cameras are an uncomfortable compromise - trying to be smaller, but with lenses that can't ignore physics. The best thing Canon or Nikon could do would be to join m4/3rds.

I still have a flip phone, and am only occasionally tempted to have a smartphone. But it is interesting to keep at least some track of smartphone technology and be aware of the intended and unintended social impacts of their convergent technologies. An interesting list - all things have to be in a list for the internet.

New photographers come into it without knowing much history. Its not good enough to stay that way. Here is a photographer who had a passion for what he photographed, and a method to achieve what he wanted to do. I will be finding out more about him, and looking for his photographs.

On article Miggo wants to 'DSLR your iPhone' with the Pictar grip (131 comments in total)

Might be more appropriate to say, they want to "rangefinder your iphone" or "mirrorless your iphone" unless there is going to be a big accessory mirror hump for the top.

Something else to lose, or not to have handy when you might need it.
