  • Replied in Crazy good?
    If phones make "crazy good pictures", then OP has already answered his own question. BUT let's just say phones are unreliable cameras. First off, they are so thin and slippery with basically no ...
  • That's a good quote and a good strategy, especially if you keep the old drive as well as getting a new one. Flash drives are acceptable too but only if they are high quality ones but even so ...
  • Replied in YES
    Forget about parcels that never arrive, get a camera locally. Don't drop it and you won't need a warranty, i never did.
  • With W7 at least, i have never had a connection issue while using a wifi connection. In my case this also applies for cable based connections, but i have experienced plenty of dropped connections ...
  • 1 blew up, 1 malfunctioned and 1 was sold after an incident where the camera "froze" while shooting in cold weather, didn't trust it after that. Rule of thumb for these cameras, don't get them wet ...
  • The RX100 V/VII do more than a GRIII can, but the ricoh does it better, at least in some instances. I vote sony for sheer conveniance.
  • "Best" and "decent" are very different things. You want the best, you buy sony batteries, and if you want decent buy any decently rated battery: duracell, patona etc. I'il say they are all decent.
  • You installed the wrong drivers so the reader doesn't work. Try a few different drivers from different sources to see which one works, they are not generic or universal. Most automatic driver ...
  • Replied in Get another one
    Most likely the mainboard quit working. Sell on ebay for spares, ad $50 and buy an identical, functioning one. No big loss. I'm currently on my 4th rx100 I. They all look and work the same, so ...
  • Replied in Me, basically
    If sony or panasonic would release a camera that provides "professional looking images" i wouldn't buy it simply because i am the one that decides how my images look, not the camera. I am the ...
  • Nostalgia is a feeling that applies to everything and is illogical in nature, therefore there is no need to find a logical explanation for it, other than the psychological mechanism on which it is ...
  • Replied in Snobs
    As the author of the article hints, many photographers out there are more interested in having up to date equipment than being loyal to a format or brand. Once people realised dslrs are "old", they ...
  • Replied in Paper prints
    They last 100 years+ Also, it is rather pointless to save raw files long term, they are huge in size and difficult to move or send because of it. You also need specialized software even to view ...
  • Replied in Who, me?
    Recently bought a pair of canon 100Ds on the used market. I like them a lot but haven't found the perfect lens for them. I will probably try to get a 40mm f2.8 because it's very small(like the ...
  • Replied in Tomorrow
    They are already doing this on people but yes, the NSA has better computers. Guess they could put the same hardware in cameras as they put in smartphones and to some extent they have(i think sony ...
  • Basically, it's defective. Looks like something related to the sensor. Sell it on ebay for $50, add another $50 and buy a working one. Or upgrade to a IV or V, you will probably lile those better. ...
  • Flash can sometimes burn out, i think this is the case here. Otherwise it would be user error, checking the manual would help with that.
  • After many years i have recently acquired two apsc dslrs with the kit lens and a 50mm f1.8 lens. Having never used f1.8 on a large sensor before, i was a bit surprised to see how shallow the depth ...
  • Replied in Sell
    Keep 2-3 cameras, including the iphone, the nikon bridge and a sony rx10 IV. Big cameras have had their time, time to let go.
  • If they can build these for observatories, i'm sure spy agencies have been using them for years.
