Najinsky: Maybe my memory is failing but didn't sealife used to rebrand Ricoh cameras for underwater use?

If there is a connection, would be ultra cool if this turns out to be an obscure clue that Ricoh are readying a 1" compact. Be still my beating heart...

Sea & Sea used to rebrand the Ricoh cameras into their own housing.

SeaLife is Sea & Sea's competitor.

Scubadu: The fully sealed camera from SeaLife does not have expandable memory. The new one takes SD.

My impression of the new DC2000 is that it should be good for photos. The strobe package is inexpensive as are the wide angle and macro lenses. I would not buy the camera without one of them. Wth SeaLife you are buying into a modular system.

4K video should be standard today yet Canon's G9X is also stuck at 1080. For the same money one could also buy a Sony RX100, Meikon housing and a Nauticam WetMate dome. The RX100 I has a good lens but speaking honestly, Sony's white balance is terrible underwater. If the lens on the new SeaLife is good then it may be a worthy choice for divers.

RAW for stills, absolutely. I should have clarified that I was referring to video.

Using a Hero 5 as compensation is the right decision by GoPro, as they don't have any other choice. GoPro must restore customer faith or they will immediately get eaten alive by cheaper competitors. The only differentiators are going to be service and software.

On article Photokina 2012: SLR Magic Stand Report (15 comments in total)

The E-mount 23mm looks super nice. I'm also very curious about the 35mm 1.4 on E-mount.

SLR Magic, if you are listening- please change the name of your compnay, or at least the lineup. It's very confusing. I also hope that you can set up distributors in the US or Europe. As an individual user I don't want to deal with customs or put a big purchase on PayPal.

On article Flickr poised for much-needed interface improvements (81 comments in total)

I have avoided flickr like the plague. My reasons are the same as many others have commented. Too much white background space, small thumbnails and the need to click extra times just to see a set... I've been using PBase but I miss the social and search functionalities that flickr has. I look forward to seeing the updated site.
