What I hate about the flagship cell phone is their price. 800€ WHAT DA F@€K !!! More to that, accidents happen. My gorilla glassed Nokia 1520 has broken glass and become a chimp ! And set me back 350€, the phone was 650€.

But more of that, flagships are not good hi-fi devices (they can play mp3 though) not easy to handle with 6inches or more screen (They can replace a tablet though) their camera is ok (but not near as good Pentax q for example!)... '

So they do everything with a comprimise limitation. But They ask for huge price tag! Sorry, no more! A samsung J5 2016 is best I have. with its 150€ price and replacable battery. They replaced the Nokia battery for 60€ !!!!!

Ben O Connor: When you think of history of art, those are the steps;
-painting on a cave wall
-carving relief on stone
-making the statue (3D)
-drawing realistic pictures
-drawing surrealic pictures
-photography & filmograpy

And now VR. you can be part of someones fantasy or vision. Or witness to something at highest realistic level.

The art after all, is touching our 5 senses. For now vr can touch our sight and sound. Imagine a vr which makes you taste smell and feel the textures!

What is matrix
?

True. It is at the very beginning and it can apply to many areas. Imagine you are reading Dracula novel and you smell blood. But yeah... so many issues to bear. And ethics hasn't even considered!

Ben O Connor: What a dumb explanation! If they would publish THE TRUTH Pentax would be in better financial and production condition then it is now.

I deeply wish to own that camera... sad to be poor.

Still higher than phase one !

I bought the Q from a final sale! I bought her only for collection purpose, since it is THE SMALLEST inter changable lens digital camera.

I use and invest in micro four thirds. Q has never been out of my house. She can go to new dedicated fellow photographer.

On article Here's why your beloved film SLR is never going digital (285 comments in total)

Today's technology DEFINITELY achieve such devices as it shown under "failed attempt" headline.

If you can fit a digital camera TO A CELL PHONE!!!!! old film cameras has enough real estate to accommodate a sensor and battery.

(p.s. I always dreamed to have even build such devices as it shown in that article. Especially after project monster cam photos.)

I wish to have a Ipadpro or something else has even less bazels to be my home jukebox, photo album & atlas.

Since you can't add more storage or use or audio files the way you want (iTunes only!!!) IpadPro is not my pick. But since no other screen as high tech as Ipad Pro 10.5. It is time to wait.

So, Kodak! Realise that, internet is very reliable now. Almost no one has doubt to lose their Instagram, Flickr or 500+pixel photos. So why people need to print things ? Besides, people gonna use their tablet cameras to scan theirs old printed photos...

On article Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III Review (583 comments in total)

Fair scoring from Dpreview as usual. I bored to see so called "new model" of cameras, repeats same specs.

This one is beautiful. Also allows sigle hand operation, that I appriciate but why no mic input ????? Just like two previous ones! Also same sensor....

It ia good but just good! No need for any medal/award.

There is only one XZ-1 for me. And she accomodates a F 1.8-2.5 28-110mm zuiko lens front of it. Her screen is at back!

Ben O Connor: Apart from mushy, jello coloured sony footage, it is very very expensive for enthusiast... well not every enthusiast married though!

Sony, your products are always extremely desirable. I hate you :) but you push me to love.

No it is not. It is a consumer stuff. Also seen all those commercials, teasers... they targeted everyone.

If it would be pro only, it would advertise differently. Maybe we wouldn't see it on dpreview at all! Also pro's do and will use whatever they want/need. No need to describe "pro". Seriously

HEY PANASONIC!!!!!

Look what others do! I wish such continuation for GM1 body. It still has enough real estate to provide 4K even at 20mpx by new sensor ! The smallest of M43 cameras with a good video quality, much better than any rx100 versions (sorry sony fanfolks!).

All Panasonic need to to was made such housings, which accomodates its own lens! Just attach the camera in to housig via mouth... Voila!

I wish to see an underwater housing, which has 12-45mm F 1.8 lens with a macro feature built in. And attaching tiny little gm1, in the water, where things floats hence no IBIS needed.... but yeah. No hope!
