Dean Winchester: LMAO, I had one of their cards in 2013, it died within weeks of buying it. I called Delkin and they literally laughed and hung up on me.

And probably laugh while doing so.

trungtran: Based on the comments, everyone is living dangerously using one card, one camera, one lens and one battery.

Stuff happens, plan like it will happen and don't blame the gear when it goes belly up.

If you lose data, it is your fault not the cards fault.

Good advice. The cards are such huge capacities these days that I'm only using about 10% of the space on each card. I swap regularly during the day to make sure any losses are minimised.

Deanaaargh: Well that's what happens when you start putting 3 and 4 sensors in each telephone.
Not to mention the need of your coffeepot, refrigerator, and every other quotidian appliance to have imaging capabilities. /s

You've "reached out"... so you've attempted to contact them.

Sheesh. When is this crap "monkey in a tree reaching for a banana" phrase ever going to die in the News section of this site?

It's as bad as a fake smartphone picture.

JerryWilliam: Tony Northrup; help!! Some of us need a translation.

This is Ken Rockwell. At the tone, leave your name and message. I'll get back to you.

Hi Ken. We can't understand the ISO article on DPReview and people have begun fighting each other. Can you help?

MisterBaz: I hope they appeal this decision.

The judge had his grounds, sure, but I doubt he gave any thought to what precedent he just set. Now everyone with any 'artwork' in any picture ever taken is going to try and sue to get their money.

I'm sorry, but if I took the darn picture, I should be able to use said picture wherever and however I want.

@qzm: no. If a picture includes things in a *general* view then that's ok. It's when the picture is clearly of the artistic work itself. This has always been the case. So, you could take a picture of a room that includes a modern artwork that is in copyright and then sell the photo, that would be fine. If, however, you set up your camera to include *only* that artwork then that would be a copyright violation if you didn't get permission from the artist and sold the work.

I have a carbon fibre pole that extends from 1.25 metres to 5 metres. I see nothing new here.

Then you don't understand copyright law very well.

A photo of an artistic work has two copyrights - the artwork itself and the photo. That has always been the case. You need permission from BOTH parties to use the photo.

There can't be that many daguerreotypes in the world. If they went at this for a few years they'd probably be able to duplicate all of the surviving ones.

sh10453: Super. Good job.
Wondering, if 100 years down the road, scientists will be developing some software or methods that would allow them to view jpg files!!!

As jnd says, it's the storage that is the problem, not the file format.

Entropy cannot be stopped.

One day the camera will be integral and behind the display. You watch - someone will figure out how to do it.

Oh, it was only an "apology", not an "unreserved apology". In that case I'm not accepting the it as it's not the full Monty...

doctor digi: I'm amazed this video hasn't been removed. It objectifies women - including all the shots women have taken of themselves.

It was tic, but I defended it on the basis it actually has an element of truth to it. I haven't changed my opinion at all.

Yes, it was. Although the way things are going, it may be close to the truth...
