Its the Pronea of the digital age.

Old folks like me recognized that right away and knew to steer clear....

So this means "full frame" sensors should be much cheaper this year and drive down the price of "full frame" cameras!

LOL yeah right

On article GoPro unveils Fusion, a 5.2K spherical VR camera (43 comments in total)

I like the concept but the output in the video sample looks like mush.

On article Canon will add C-Log to the EOS 5D Mark IV for $99 (464 comments in total)

The amount of people that will truly use C-Log in the 5D IV to shoot B roll to match the output of their Cinema EOS Camera is very small and typically work within budgets where they wouldn't even think twice about spending $99 to make their workflow easier.

On article The Sony a9 is a 24MP sports-shooting powerhouse (1909 comments in total)

If they get the AF right this could be a real shot across the bow of Canon and Nikon. Nice work!

On article Nikon D7500: What you need to know (540 comments in total)
In reply to:

bobclark86: Amateur strap lugs, no second card... Still not the end of the world. Better in some ways than my D7100 I use to shoot sports semi-pro with, but worse in just a few ways (I'm not crying myself to sleep over 4 lousy megapixels). I'd be hard pressed to pick between it and a refurb D500 for a few dollars more, though...

What is an "amateur strap lug"? I'm not sure the design of a strap lug designates pro status or the talent that usually goes with it.

On article Nikon D7500: What you need to know (540 comments in total)

12-140? If I read that right that is a 18-200mm equivalent in full frame terms. To be honest that interests me more than the new camera although that looks like a very nice upgrade.

On article Leica offers free fix for faulty AF in some S lenses (92 comments in total)

I have it on good authority that they will be issuing a limited run of 1000 "Goodwill Arrangement" lenses complete with certificate of authenticity to commemorate this remarkable gesture of goodwill. The 1000 lenses will have been verified as truly defective and will come in a display case signed by the CEO, lens technician, and customer care specialist.

On article Throwback Thursday: Nikon D70 (220 comments in total)

It was very interesting looking back at the D70 camera review posted back in 2004. The reviews were so thorough and a great read. I realize that reviews have become much less stringent in an effort to get out more content but its clear how much insight has been lost when you look back at how good the old content was. In contrast, I happened to be reading through the recent Nikon D3400 review and it is barely more than a press release.

On article Re-make/Re-model: Leica Summaron 28mm F5.6 Samples (197 comments in total)

Is the lens dirty?

Or.. is it supposed to look blurry, low contrast, and riddled with veiling flare?

I bought a Soviet era K-mount lens that was this bad but it was $20...

On article Canon EOS 77D / 9000D sample gallery (147 comments in total)

The reds here look better than what I saw with the M5 gallery i.e. they don't make my eyes bleed. I know the sensor is likely the same but the rendering looks tweaked for the better.

That's a nice camera and everything but just wait until Nikon comes out with the D820 with Snapbridge! Beat that Fuji!

The wireless transmitter must have been designed by the guy who's last project was an 80's technology car phone.
