scrup: He is sorry he got caught.

No, he's only sorry for being caught.

He'll probably try to figure out a way to do the same thing without being caught.

Do people want to be influenced by others that much?

On article Video: Diving into the demise of Kodak (215 comments in total)

It's like all American companies. They start as consumer-oriented, and then they evolve to business-oriented, where the big money supposedly lay. Consumer-oriented side is gradually neglected, and out-sourced to third world countries where they manufacture cheap goods with American badges. It's all fine if transition succeeds, but when both business-oriented and consumer-oriented fail, they go under, and get broken up. American badges then get bought up by companies in third world countries that now have enough resources to purchase these fancy badges.

Corkcampbell: How can 3 people say that they "had it," a new camera not yet available?

They imagined it.

In reply to:

markusw: Just for curiosity... is there any 35mm film camera in production at any brand?

According to some sources, Canon finished production of EOS-1v way back in 2010.
The stock they have is finally running out, so they've declared it "out of production".

In reply to:

Henessy: The question really is, why phone technology isnt trickling up to big cameras?
My guess is that it is because there's simply so much more money for phone development than pure camera tech because a billion people will get a new phone every two years, and maybe a milion people will get a new DSLR every 5 years?
Further guessing, Sony will be in a much better position to bring phone processor style power into their big cameras for astonishing leap in quality.

If phone technology is so good, why would they even bother with Japanese camera makers?

I would never buy one new, but still, it's sad to see it go.

Canikon should just produce a no-holds-barred FF mirrorless to satisfy those screaming for one, so they can move on to more interesting stuff.

taktak91: If Sony's offerings looked like this, I would have bought one by now.

Camera design doesn't have to be consistent.
There is no single design that can satisfy all users, all needs and all situations.

On article Report: Chinese company Xiaomi may purchase GoPro (93 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mariano Pacifico: "The U.S. debt to China is $1.17 trillion as of January 2018. That's 19 percent of the $6.26 trillion in Treasury bills, notes, and bonds held by foreign countries. The rest of the $21 trillion national debt is owned by either the American people or by the U.S. government itself. "

GoPro is just loose change to China.

There is no company in China that has absolutely no ties to the Chinese government. All companies there have some ties to the government or to the Communist Party that oversees the government. One has to remember that even the country's constitution is beneath the decree of the Party.

In reply to:

Sergey Borachev: What a joke!!! Drop the price to $499 with the kit lens. Then it will be considered. With nothing exciting in this camera, people will just pick the Fuji X-A5 instead. 24MP, 15-45mm OIS lens, .. All for $599.

'Drop the price' isn't much of an advice.

I'm glad Japanese makers don't do this often in Japan.

This project is simply NHK's ploy to show that portion of the money they racketeer is actually put to good use.

Well people, Canon will finally release a FF mirrorless with full video capabilities.
Go and pre-order.
It'll only cost you your arm and a leg.

On article Fujifilm X-H1 Review (1582 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jefftan: In my opinion all big/heavy/expensive sub frame camera is a bad idea
include X-H1/ g9 /E-M1 II

If people can accept the price and weight of these, most will just go full frame

when they are release, fuji/panasonic/olympus probably not aware of A7 III
hard to see how they can really compete with it

from my standpoint, if Sony just release one more budget priced 20mm or 24mm F2 lens (like FE 28 F2)
the whole system is very hard to beat if one don't mind heavy weight

Sensor size is one of the factor to consider when choosing a camera. It's not the only factor, nor the ultimate factor.
