On article Google's Pixel phones: What you need to know (122 comments in total)
In reply to:

JSmitty: Full resolution, free storage with Google Photos eliminates need for SD card or massive GBs. Period! Old school types need to learn how to utilize this technology. All of your images are at your disposal, on demand, whenever you want them. It works and it's far superior to the old way.

And you can also enjoy the animations Google makes out of your pics for your pleasure. No one touches my photos. NO ONE.

On article Google's Pixel phones: What you need to know (122 comments in total)

This phone retails at around 1100 AUD in Australia. I will give it a pass. The Nexus line was aimed at people who wanted the best value out of their money without getting spammed by the funky changes Samsung and other vendors made to Android. Google has abandoned those people and is now targeting the brain dead people who worship Apple. Problem is that Sheeple will not be swayed in their devotion.
This phone is still born.
Expect massive price cuts down the line. Wait for that if you are really eager to have this phone.

What about the signature Panasonic Blue tint in the images? Still carries the tradition?

On article Fujifilm X70 Review (372 comments in total)

All was well till page 6. I will wait till Ricoh somehow manages to tame the APS-C sensor in a small body and makes the camera focus on the subject rather than on background.

what_i_saw: They are finally climbing down. They famously ignored Indian market. When customers complained of the high prices in India, Apple said "Whatever". Time to eat the crow Apple. This is the beginning of the slide.

Well they are trying. But let me see what worked. Apple watch? Nope. That big iPad Pro targeted at Surface. Nope. That plastic cased iPhone? Nope. People have moved on. There are some compelling handsets in Android ecosystem and not all people are blind followers (aka Please take my money). The novelty factor of iPhone is long gone. They must be missing Steve Jobs so bad. And at least in India, the horse has bolted long ago. Nexus line of phones, One plus One, Moto X (even some of the LG and Samsung phones too) has really got people spoilt for choice. The strategy of cheaper iPhone is doomed in India.

I can confirm that auto uploaded never worked on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 for me. So pro account holders. Good for you.

Time to release some quality pancake primes for this one.

On article History Repeating: Olympus PEN-F Review (1058 comments in total)

That button on the front is indeed a wasted one.
Love the custom settings on the main dial. I loved that feature on my LX3 and sadly OMD-Em5 does not have that.

On article Ricoh offers GR II firmware version 1.10 (21 comments in total)

My question still remains unanswered. Does this one keep focusing on the background instead of the subjects? GR-I had this problem.

In reply to:

what_i_saw: So much for the mirror less cameras being small in size. At this rate soon the smallish to normal sized DSLR will be at par on size and feature front. And with their usual fast focusing abilities + comparatively cheaper lenses, soon we will have to take a re-look at them.

@Cipher - My only issue is the size. Anything bigger than OMD EM-5 (which includes OMD EM1 too) means that one should also have a look at other options like DSLR's with small form factor.

@Jacques Cornell - With a bright prime, IS ceases to be a deal breaker. And an optical viewfinder over EVF anyday for me. Rest of things do not matter to the way I shoot. And better S-AF??

I am happy with OMD EM-5 + 25mm oly prime.

Given the size of GX8 I will actually go for nikon D3300 + a 35mm prime. That will make more sense.

what_i_saw: Does this one at least focus on subject instead of the background like the old one did?

@Hibiki Rush You are not the only one. I had started a thread on this issue and the replies as to how to fix this were so technical that I bought an OMD E-M5. GR now collects dust. Which is a shame
This is the thread:

Funny how DPReview never came across this issue. Maybe they are technically sound enough to avoid this issue.
