On article Accessory Review: Tamrac Zipshot Tripod (94 comments in total)

Until you actually own one of these, you won't understand just how cool the Zipshots are.

I have both sizes.

Sure they are not a Manfrotto 055XPro, but they sure are handy when ultra light weight is of utmost importance!

The Zipshots are very popular with the mountain bikers, hikers and climbers.

I was kind of hoping for this camera with the full 4/3 lens mount . . . not the m4/3.

Oh well . . .

We'll see, although while I do like the 4/3rd's DSLR's, I've never been much of a film era OM fan.

On article Pentax announces K-01 K-mount APS-C mirrorless camera (866 comments in total)

I've always thought that the camera company that made their mirrorless cameras use their DSLR lenses without an adapter would be the big winner!

Interesting that Pentax is the first to do that . . .

Now, if only we can get Pentax cameras back into the stores (USA) where the buyers can see them before they buy!

Then they might be a big hit!


As for it's appearance, it has a kind of 1980's boxy-retro-toy-robot look to it!

Not too sure how I like that . . .
