On article 2016 Roundups: Fixed Prime Lens Cameras (194 comments in total)

All those cameras are lacking pocketability or sharper lens (1.4 0r higher!) Why limiting... and not for cheap though
(Fuji X70 is a true alternative for a while... but not forever. Even LX7 lumix has sharper lens... stop talking about sensor size l, will you?)

Ben O Connor: Only thing I saw good in that camera is; it shares the same body as A7 series has. If anyone has accessories of that system, it will work with that too.

Other than that.. Could this replace Canon 1D or Nikon D5 ? Really ?

Oh my God! Sony has its fanboys "like no other" :) ok guys hands down. Now keep calm and bring your cash to Sony.

Ben O Connor: Another "perfect on paper" camera. Buy Lumix GM1 folks! Perfectly cheap and small. With great images

Well, what is so pointless about that comment ? You can't use new tele + a9 combo handheld! And there are already fullframe mirror less Sony cams with highest burst rate called 60fps which is 4K video.

Also most sports event are held under wonderful light condition, where you don't need light sucking highest ISO camera... So ?

Pointless one is the camera. It is like a Ferrari. Fast capable etc. But max speed is limited on the traffic. You should stop your ferrari at red light too!

"Why not use phone?" is a good question actually. The answer is dedication. This A9 is dedicated on what ? Has no mirror yet huge with such lens!
And yeah my 149€ phone has a mic jack but GM1 hasn't!!! Even amazing built in IS Gx80/85 lacks it. Very hard to understand dumbass cam manufacturers.

mujana: I do not own a sd Quattro, but I have a dp3m and I love this camera! Images can be absolutely superb and not incomparable in (high) quality, files of any other camera! Definitely worth to support them by firmware updates!
Do you own one or ever used one, Ben?

I told that; I don't own one. I think its not a popular cam. brand (sells less than 5.000 cams globally per model) to support firmware.

Most likely, it's a good news for the ones who own one.

On article Alcatel Flash features front and rear dual-cams (10 comments in total)

Back in the day (2nd Millenia!!! Year 2000!!!) my first cell phone was an Alcatel one touch easy :) cute lovely phone, had many girlfriends but not so much money to call them... Texting was the thing... And internet was a luxury! It wasn't in your pocket. You have to sit front of it. And take it serious! Internet, was that then!

Anyway that Alcatel has the name. I wish it would be also alcately... Has huawei specs and price... But nane Alcatel, which was affordable... Nokias were expensive "for the son" in my family budget when I was 16 :)

Damn, those were the days. Viva Alcatel!

I don't make that comment to offend sigma. I respect them also my first lns was Art DN 30mm2.8 for my pen camera. And can't wait to own. F1.4 of that focal range.

But cameras of sigma... Not that popular, to support them by any firmware... I think.

You always buy & load your freezer. For the first time you'd know the day expire! You can have a great inventory based on that knowledge.

IT CAN REDUCE THE PRODUCT THAT TRASHED EVERYDAY AND SAVE MONEY AND LIVES.

Ben O Connor: Such a dream type of a customers apple has. They have willing to pay up to 1.000€ for a phone, which has NOTHING ELSE but more memory than its 32gb version (799€) and that 800€ basic model has NOTHING BETTER than android ones internally...

Well, good news for Apple and Chinese economy!

Well the article is about "financial reality". Apple has the best of somethings no doubt. But what they charge for it, is ABSURD! And their customers loves it. Or at least ok with it.
