Kirppu: They should fix the whole photos/drive/plus system... it's a total mess a crap.
can't tag anything easily
can't create nested albums, but in drive you can plus you can see your google photos there.
can only create groups of photos in the plus service.
you can see photos in drive, but can't move them one to another.
never really know when the photo is deleted or just removed from the album.
can't reate a public albums, jeah you can do that share a link thingy but no real public album.

continue...

No way to track how many bloody, different usage rights one photo has in multiple places.
You can't create new album berofe you upload the photo, even then the upload goes to 'auto backup area' and is added to the designated album just after that.
There's hidden albums you can't delete www.svenbluege.de/picasa/v1.1/#
Oh and there's also this Picasa legacy album collection where you CAN make albums public :D get.google.com/albumarchive/101513175512278745673/ BUT another catch, you can't edit anything BUT you can add more photos to your archived albums, like yourvaginahere

WORST, I mean worst piece of ***************************** I have seen from a big corporate, right after MSN pre historic Windows kernel, Apple close up and r*** your customer policy and big corporation piracy / copyright actions.

ps: Death to the corporate world.

On article Close-up: Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 (127 comments in total)

Never gonna consider this camera for my use. But oh boy there's lots of complains.
I consider this camera to be a video focused indei movie makers budget choise.
Unlimited 4K, 10-bit 4:2:2, coming later 400Mbps, slow motion capabilities and for the occasional still photos 6k photo snaps from vide. Also no sign of overheating problems yet...

How I see there isn't very much to be complaining in the video enthusiast point of view. Just an opinion from the ringside :)

ps: This is a complain about complains, how ironic.

Henry Alekna Photography: Thats it, no more yahoo mail for me! I only created the account in the first place so I had an email to sign up to an iCloud mail account. Not quite sure which service I will move my backup email address to, but it certainly won't be yahoo!

Might make a new account and then transfer my Flickr over to it as they wont let me delete my main email address from it. I can't believe they don't let you change your login email!

Why would you trust sensitive data to a online service in the first place?

Sony should stop making cameras and double the price of their sensors.

In reply to:

Kirppu: So Canon APS-C sensor camera without flappy-mirror, my first reaction is why it took so long? Size benefit doesn't seem to be that huge compared to the regular Canon APS-C sensor lineup. But how about the compared price...

My ignorance for the aps-c scene, sorry. :)
Somehow I got the impression that this was EF/EF-s mount compatible without an adapter, which is it not. My bad here also. :)

In reply to:

NJOceanView: I am still trying to ascertain whether their TOS means they also have rights to our original photos, vs. just their treatments of them. I'm fine with the latter, but not the former. Can any attorneys in the group try to parse out their language?

I do not like apps that use online servers to modify my data.
ps: oh there's tinfoil on sale...

On article Small but mighty: hands on with the Panasonic GX85/GX80 (307 comments in total)
In reply to:

mosc: I'm just of the opinion that there's no market beyond cell phones and fixed lens compacts (with really fast glass) for cameras of this size/price. I thought the GX8 was a more reasonable "enthusiast" product to pair with lenses but this kit-lens-focused GX85 seems doomed. The LX100 is under $600 and has a MUCH faster lens.

Personally I would grap the E-M5 II for ~660€ in europe and would not miss the 4K video. But different person, different needs.

(is this considered as advert?)

In reply to:

Ben O Connor: They did not mention the size of sensor... it is probably smaller than my cellphone, in A.D. 2016.

Ridiculous!

720mm equivalent divided by 123mm focal length seems to give crop factor of 5.854. So long edge length of the sensor would be around 5.978mm
If I'm not totally wrong...

On article Enthusiast compact camera roundup (185 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jimmy2thou: This is for compact cameras? I have the Fuji X100s and it slips right into my....... camera bag, because it is not a compact camera! It's a bloody good camera, but calling it compact is like calling a toilet roll a tampon.

I hope it is not just me. Maybe, you're all now used to hipster jeans that hang below your ass and pockets big enough for a keg of beer?

So, back to COMPACT cameras. Ricoh GR, Nikon Coolpix A, Sony RX, Canon G7... and Sigma DPM/Q (Although slightly bigger and less user friendly). Bigger sensors that fit in 'normal pockets'.

I think your top 4 cameras are 'Enthusiast small camera bag cameras' and marketed like that, all a good choice.

Same thing crossed my mind while reading this. :)
Majority of the article cameras ain't that compact.

Link | Posted on Nov 26, 2014 at 07:56 UTC

My opinion:
LX100 for those you don't never want to bother changing the lense. Buy a camera get good photos. Forget the next 3-4 years that there's alertanive cameras.

GX7 and you have to start thinking which lenses to buy for your needs. Also what kind of camera bag you'll need and so on...

See the difference here :)

CNY_AP: Seems like they are simply copying the human eye which is a good idea.

The Main thing is that the eyes sharp area is kind of small. Also eyes do these small movements(Saccade) all the time. Both of these things are kind of bad if your goal is to do static sharp focus for large, flat sensor.

I don't think that battery size (2600mAh) is enough for photographic device that also has android running at the same time. Going to drain it self empty very quickly while shooting and uploading your photos to the social media as the selfie snapshotters tend to do.

In reply to:

Kirppu: I personally don't get this concept. Buy a lens mount, that work by it self no matter that the ergonomics seem to suck. Use your lens mount with your smart phone that acts as you camera rear screen. Still you're far from ergonomic nirvana.
Plus, you still have to buy lenses for your system.

Heck why not just buy the E-mount camera body?
This is one of those things I just don't get it.

Just give your camera to a chimp and retrieve it after couple of day. This way you don't have to bother taking funky photos and videos by your self :)
