I don't think the word "iconic" fits very well here, although the shots have deservedly gotten a lot of attention.

On article Review: Simple Booth Event Edition photo booth app (21 comments in total)

I don't care so much for prints, but in a party it might be a nice option to have the photos being shown on a display somewhere on the party location as a slide show (you would be able to disable this when you see your photo after it's taken – if you are a coward ;-) ). It would also be nice to have a keyboard next to the camera, which you could use to give your e-mail address, and then get your photos sent to your inbox.

I'm surprised that you think that people are surprised.

"Pickpockets hit 1700 per day during the London Olympics, so lets not be too quick to throw Rio under the bus."

To make the comparison we'd need the daily Rio figures too.

On article 8K Helium Super 35mm sensor on the way from RED (86 comments in total)
In reply to:

Neez: I don't think they should use chemical elements in the name, unless it's involved in the manufacturing process or something. Do they use helium to make this sensor?? Otherwise, it doesn't seem right to call it the Helium Sensor.

Like if i were to call a car, the Toyota Propane vehicle, people would be all kinds of confused.

"Yes, fully agreed. But do you have examples?"

Speaking of cameras, at least Kodak Instamatic, Leica Minilux, Olympus Tough. In a wider sense Canon PowerShot, Fujifilm FinePix. There are probably more.

I like names which have some connection to the device they represent, be it a feature, something the device excels in or perhaps the way it looks. To come up with a good name from that starting point actually takes more imagination than picking a random, nice sounding name. I don't think this is very important, but still.

On article Lens shootout: Sony RX10 III destroys the competition (487 comments in total)
In reply to:

Grig: I don't see destruction compared to FZ1000... Sorry... May be good idea to change it to "outperforms" or something like it if you really think so, but not destroys for sure... But to me FZ Leica lens is sharper and less CA... Especially on the sides at F8 at 400mm

@ Barney Britton

Headline is the most influential part of an article. There is no such thing as "just a headline". When misleading is done on the headline, that should be seen as an aggravating circumstance.

beavertown: When I clicked the Like button, it became Unlike? Anyone???

@ Daniel

I'm a long time and active Internet user, and I have never seen this kind of like/unlike arrangement before, so I don't think it's strange to ask about it.

Battersea: I just won't comment. Oh I already did. Yeah it's cool.

Was it your drone? And your pals registered to vote your comment up? I'm sorry if it's not so, but such a juvenile comment getting so many likes seems suspicious to me.

In reply to:

mmarian: I have had similar setup with video feed to a ground station and servo triger on the shutter on auxiluary channel and been using it commercially in Australia ( having a proper certifications and license) for years. The only difference is that I am not dropping mediocre quality instant photos from the drone. But than again I am a commercial operator and not a Rochester Uni student. And I am not allowed to fly over heads of unsuspected spectators!!! It can only end up bad in case of any failure of the drone....Do not they teach students at Rochester Unif basic safety rules and a common sense ?? Sorry and what was the news worthy DPI's reporting?????

No longer interesting? So this news is interesting? There are many things that are interesting or fun for an individual, but don't really have newsworthiness, and I think this is one of such things. I don't say that this news item shouldn't have been published, but I think it's good to bring up how uninteresting it is for a very large majority of people and even photographers.

BTW, I have noticed during my life that in most cases when people ask others to lighten up, they are in a state of mind that calls for the same advice.

In reply to:

ozturert: So should we be happy with the fact that they kept selling overpriced equipment (that's how you make profit if number of sales is low) and made big profit out of our pockets?

The fact that Sony made more money doesn't mean that it's products have become overpriced. Number of sales also isn't low; it just decreased 1.7%. Finally, the operating income of Sony's imaging products division was about one tenth of the sales, which is a normal, healthy figure – also from a consumer point of view.

In reply to:

yslee1: Does anyone notice that Sony has lumped in their medical division, which makes flow cyometers, with imaging? The medical business had a good year, though how good is hard to tell as they've strangely lumped in Operating Revenue in there as well.

@photomedium

You write in reply to yslee1, but the content of your comment doesn't seem to have anything to do with what yslee1 says.

paulbysea: So why sensationalise the fact in the headline if the conclusion of the article is that for the intended market segment the changes are unimportant? Well done to Nikon to buck the trend and design a camera for the real world rather than to appease a few pixel peeping testers who are more interested in specifications than real world photography.

The headline isn't sensationalizing at all; its just states the result of one test. It would be sensationalizing, if it read for example like this:
- "Studio report: Nikon D5 is crippled by lowest base ISO dynamic range of any current FF Nikon DSLR.

In reply to:

nizar ghosn: ok fine, so what?? what is the problem in the new d5 that can shoot cleanly @ 400.000 iso if it is an iso invariant ??? i am not or even you not an everyday shooter that forced to crank my settings (iso) 4 ev steps !!! be cool and realistic dear photographers, i bet you the D5 will show a brilliant color rendition and amazing skin tones way better than it's predecessor, further thoughts will come when DPReview play with it ... cheers

It almost sounds like you didn't read the article. It pretty much says "so what" already, so you are just repeating it's content:

- "In our opinion, the importance of the fact that the D5 has poorer base ISO dynamic range than its current peers should not be overstressed. We issue this word of caution because the intended audience of the D5 is very unlikely to care all that much about this aspect of its total performance. For them, the D5's high ISO imaging capabilities, advanced autofocus and durability are likely to be much more important."

Normally, the use of ND filters results in cheesy pictures made by people who have no taste but believe they master photographic techniques.

grasscatcher: Glad they got microSD back, but they lost the removable battery and IR port that my S5 has. So my S5 us slightly less waterproof (IP67 vs IP68) - I would take that with a removable battery. I will miss my universal remote when I upgrade.

@ adengappasami: So if I think that Galaxy S7 would be good enough for me for the next five years, Galaxy S2 would be too? Good thinking...

On article Quick review: Nextbit Robin camera (44 comments in total)

To me the phone looks like it was designed by a machine, not a human being. Boring and cold. The design is all brain, no soul.

In reply to:

Bob A L: Is sigma lying about the f1.8 - article says it performs like a f2.8 - one whole stop off?

I think it's an interesting piece of information that the amount of light coming through with f1.8 on a crop censor camera equals f2.8 on a full frame. I don't understand what some are complaining about.
