On article Oberwerth launches Donau line of leather lens pouches (55 comments in total)
In reply to:

BobT3218: It's a German company so I don't have to look at the price to know it is way out of my range. It's strange that products of animal hide still carry an aura of exclusiveness and for just that reason command a considerably higher price.

Leather is the best!

villagranvicent: Those shots look like they were processed by some Lomographic cellphone app. Oh, I am sorry, it's called art.

The punishment should be harsh! First of all, these resources can not be recreated once destroyed. Second...venturing on to the thermal area can be deadly! A harsh punishment should serve as a warning to others!

Lou P Dargent: What we need now is a silver X-Pro 2 body to go with the silver lens option.

This forum is full of whiners, complainers, and know-it-alls. If they were all removed...who would be left?

The 2x teleconverter by Fuji is a good idea and I'm glad they brought it to market. It's very simple...if you don't like it or don't want it...don't buy it!

If this lens is such a great idea..they should fund it themselves!

I've always been a big Pentax fan and supporter...but these sample images are horrible! What the heck is Pentax thinking? I tend to believe that the camera will be really good...but this is no way to market a product and advance the bottom line! A 90-yr old grandma taking a photo for the first time with an iPhone could produce better images than the ones on display!

Shiranai: Fuji manager: "Why don't we just leave a filter away and call it a new camera? We could sell it for the same freakin introductory price like our outdated model."
*diabolic laughter*

There is no thin line between making money or taking somebody for a fool...the market determines the price! If they thought profits could be maximized by selling the camera for $4,000, they would do so. Likewise, if they can not sell enough units at the current price to be profitable...they will lower the price in hopes of selling more units and thereby increase profits.

Mister Roboto: While the photo is good, I don't think it is worth that money. Not even close to 1/1000th of the price. It is ridiculous and most likely bogus that someone in the right mind will buy a photo at that price. A worthless homo sapien IMHO.

In regards to the comment by "Mister Roboto"...any object is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it.

Why would anyone want the Leica X when the Fuji X100S is on the market?

In reply to:

retro76: I hate when company's do this. Basically they are saying; you know how our 1.2 lens has crappy bokeh, well here we fixed it by adding a filter, all you need to do is give us $500 more and your good to go. Shame on you Fuji.

No, I disagree completely! All things change...nothing stays the advances and improvements are made. Now buyers will have the option of two different 56mm lens options for their system! $500 does seem like a steep price in my opinion...but that is merely my opinion. If Fuji or any other company thinks that the market would support a price of $3,000 for this lens...they would sell it for that.

George Veltchev: amazing tastelessness ... but some kids from Ordos ( Inna Mongolia ) will love it !

If you don't like it...don't buy it. This would really be a boring world if everybody liked the same thing. I don't care for it either...but if Pentax can expand its market much the better.

Looks like a fantastic lens1

On article Walmart sues photographer's widow over family pictures (164 comments in total)

This is a ridiculous story. On the surface, it certainly appears that Walmart is being greedy...trying to steal the photos from the copyright holder. But perhaps it would be better to hear the rest of the story prior to judgement. What if the photographer is trying to get $1 billion from WalMart for the photos or some other overbloated price? Is the photographic studio violating any previous agreements on photo reproduction? However, it is quite likely that WalMart is trying to taking advantage over the photo studio simply because they have the power...and that is wrong!

This feature is only useless to someone that finds it useless. A good feature does not have to be useful to all.

From August 2008, please correct.

Why...does it really matter for the purposes of this article?
