Dee Fitch: Chances are I'll never see the movie, period. These staged/battle/action scenes in war movies are so phony and monotonous, and they really grate on me. I guess your average Joe moviegoer laps it up so movie guys don't challenge themselves to make better. There are more interesting and creative ways to depict battle.

Sad. So an artist can't make a film that captures the imagery? So throw all cameras away, they are all a joke.

Sad

MichaelCourtney: Anyone considering wasting money on this piece of fluff should read Dororthy Rabinowitz' Wall Street Journal review entitled "The Dumbing Down of ‘Dunkirk’".

Stick to Batman movies, Mr. Nolan.

Politically obsessed people, bad mouthing Nolan, best living director today, have political axes to grind.

Going to WSJ for movie reviews is idiotic

As if they could do better. Pretty sad.

For those Kubrick buffs, there is some hidden irony here.

rialcnis: One reason not mentioned is how the Mac is totally insecure compared to the win 10 PC.

I would NEVER buy a Mac. Ipad is bad enough.

@tonywong The most famous (and infamous) computer security person, who is currently working on entirely new security products and techniques, has said unequivocally, the Mac is the least secure OS there is.

Amazing. Is there the Silver or Black choice?

Obviously such low priced lenses are attractive. Like to see mft examples on omd 1 mk 11 and video on the GH5

Not sure what this is or what this does, but curious to find out.

rialcnis: I think I see Stanley Kubrick down there.

Putting Stanley in the same line with Cameron, is a transgression regardless the context.

It's happening, Surface Phone. No, it hasn't been "maybe this year" untill now, but guessing 2018. I have a win 10 Nokia and far better then my ipad--- except for lack of apps, but this will change when your phone can run anything.

On article Analog gems: 10 excellent, affordable film cameras (828 comments in total)
In reply to:

1Dx4me: i still have my Olympus OM-1 that i had purchased in late 70s. what a little camera this was, it was the king of SLRs in its days! it was small, tough made, and very accurate! i still have mine but don't use it because of too much hassle developing film and not having control over post processing, and not being able to see how the shot turned out and making adjustments like the latest FF cameras.

Mine was ruined by Shamu the Killer Whale in 1982. My father in law gave me one in 1975 as a wedding gift. He had sold all his Canons, Leicas and lenses to go full Olympus system, declaring their total superiority. (He was optical engineer, artist, designer of medical equipment, photographer)
My OM-1 was my pride and joy. Fantastic camera. Unfortunately not water resistent and within a few months after Shamu emergency, everything froze up.

Every day that passes makes me reappreciate film grain rather then digital.

In reply to:

I own 128 cameras: How can people claim to own the A9 or use to own the A9, when it's months from being released. I once was on a list that got me Nikon's 7-8 days early, and once a deal with SONY where I had the camera 30 days only, not a production model, not production menus. But there is no way, world wide, 30 people have had this camera. Anyone who even saw it at a trade show have signed an NDA, which means they can't even say the owned or own it.

Frustrating.

Maybe those "26" people are Canon and Nikon users saying, "I'VE Had It!"

I asked that last week, now the number of "Had it" has doubled...and these people are hallucinating.
