  • one of the various action cameras / dashcams available on the market will probably delight (or disgust) you :)
  • quite simply this: * a discounted (typically 1-year old or older) brand new mirrorless model with kit lens, plus 4xAA third-party flash unit (if the budget allows). For me, an electronic (silent) ...
  • Replied in Why 12v DC?
    12V receptacles of all types (even the cheapest) always allow for far more current than USB, even on very inexpensive gear that has been out for decades. USB is still playing 'catch up', power-wise. ...
  • Even those devices that irresponsibly recommend alkalines in their instructions tend to run fine with recharegeable Ni-MH, in my experience. If there are still these devices out there (I don't ...
  • Replied in yes
    Sigh. My often-repeated point is that they CAN be smaller and often ARE smaller being the main point. The simple fact is we are seeing more smaller offerings than normally seen. This is what the ...
  • Replied in 12V DC
    I don't know. What I know is the time between specs and products is often considerably laggy, for a variety of reasons. For me, I'd like to see more chargers that have a simple DC jack so they can ...
  • Replied in 8xAA
    2 chargers and 8 eneloop AA for less than 40 USD: https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-K-KJ17MCA4BA-Individual-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00JHKSMJU Easy peasy.
  • Certainly not true for at least the past 10 years. https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-K-KJ17MCA4BA-Individual-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00JHKSMJU In the past, rechargeable Ni-MH AAs used to lose ...
  • Replied in yes
    Smaller lenses are available and selling now despite your science. Can you explain that? We have offerings that we didn't quite see so much of before. Again, irrelevant. Software tricks or not, we ...
  • Nigel, your kind of thinking is admirable. However, I have moved from Jumbo and cameras with non-tiltable LCDs. It's very easy to get used to smaller cameras with the choice we have now. And I have...

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0If-yw2AOI 'Official' Canon video so I thought it would be filled with fluff, but it explained all the features pretty comprehensively. I am really impressed with ...
  • the end of Nikon 1 is almost certain (the market sentiment in general is not great). I hope the practice of overpriced EVFs reaches its end too - from all manufacturers. Precious few benefits and ...
  • You and millions of others. Consider mirrorless as a second camera (if you can swing it). Or wait a few years until things get more refined. You have a capable DSLR. Those feelings of downsizing ...
  • If it were my wedding, social media posts would be banned. Why would I want to document my private life to State-sponsored criminals? Why would I want to freely give up my private info to those ...
  • Replied in Micor SD...
    I don't know what makes you think they are slower for a given price. All the speed grades you find in MicroSD you can find in SD for basically the same price. You may pay a $1 premium (or) so for ...
  • I can't speak for the OP, but that has been my policy for years. MicroSD can be used in phones or tablets or small USB card readers plus it can be full-size if needed. They are far more flexible. I ...
  • I think you are more impressed with the focusing of the lens than the DSLR technology itself. Any DSLR can be reduced to mediocre status with a slower-focusing lens attached DSLRs force mto leave ...
  • waiting for it became decisively boring :)

  • We can probably run faster (and walk faster) with smaller bodies and lenses. Definitely. But thank goodness it moves on; it has to. Then you realise that things like 6MP sensors and 720p video were ...
