On article Opinion: Park vandals need to be stopped (336 comments in total)
In reply to:

User8303410032: That story is not so easy to address, as a geologist wrotte earlier, this roc would have most certainly fall soon or late, and could have fallen on someone, I would not be surprised that those people didn't do that for vadalism but beceause they found it to be unstable.
In a societe where safety take a way too large scale, where children play grounds of our chilhoud get closed because it is possible the a child could get hurt and parent use it to get dispropotionate lawsuit, we can't juge with yesteryears eyes.

Many of the arches in Arches National Park is unstable to a certain degree and will eventually fall, does that make it OK for people to go in and destroy them?

On article Striding Forth: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Review (1920 comments in total)
In reply to:

Deardorff: "and though we don't expect the 5D Mark IV to have caught up with full-frame sensors from Sony"

WHY NOT? Canon have lived as third banana for years now. A NEW sensor - why can't they at least match the competition, much less beat it?

Nikon and Sony have been available to tear apart and work with so Canon engineers must be sleeping in their sushi on this one. You know the goal and settle for not making it.

Not a good move Canon.

D5 sensor is designed by Nikon and produced in a foundry, not by Sony.

Noogy: How could you not include Corel PaintShop when it is better than most of the alternatives you stated?

Was just about to post the same thing. It seems incomprehensible that it's not included.

tabloid: I see that you can get a LaCie 6TB Desktop Hard Drive with thunderbolt and USB 3.0 for about £300 ($450 US ?).

Would love that as a SSD.

Give it another year, and everything will be SSD.

I remember those mini hard drive for digital cameras....
Those were the days my friend (thankfully gone).
Roll on SSD.

This is 60TB!!!!

The full linked article at the bottom is a fascinating article and very much worth reading.

Elliot H: did they discover oil?

Perhaps they are waiting for the price of oil to recover! :)

Kamox: The only lenses I have kept in my hand that felt like could be used forever, were those with manual focus (the two, older-than-my-father, lenses for my 4x5 Graflex, the Nikkor AI, Leica lenses).
AF lenses will become obsolete or unusable (like the new AF Nikon lenses without aperture ring) at some point.
Of course they are way more convenient.

Some of the Zeiss FF.2 and ZE lenses feel that way!

Yup, here too. I hate it when that happens :D

In reply to:

Linz178: Have just stumbled on the D500 news - great, after all time! I haven't had time to read anything in detail, but I'm wondering about its multiple exposure capability. Can it combine 10 images (as in the D300) or is it restricted to three (as in more recent Nikon cameras)?

According to Nikon the answer is yes!

Totally agree but I don't know if the Hassy CEO is a visionary or not :)

Understood but corporate history is full of transformative stories of CEO's from another industry turning a company around. As long as the CEO surrounds him/herself with people that are experienced in the industry, a great symbiosis can be formed that can really move a company forward. Hopefully that is what is going on here but i do understand your concern.

I was thinking exactly the same thing. They probably opened the article, saw the picture of the stylized Sony camera and had to start typing without reading the article or even the headline.

On article Sony Alpha a7 II Review (850 comments in total)
In reply to:

E.J.: Very misleading size comparison. the REAL size difference without making one look much bigger by hanging a bigger lens off of it to mislead the viewer, is not so much of a difference at all. Once you put the same lens on them, which extend past the grip anyway, the difference is essentially insignificant.

Yes, larger due to the deeper grip which is in response to user requests for a deeper grip and user desire to move the shutter button. I wasn't contesting the weight. I was trying to say that the DPReview picture of the two is very misleading since they put a big lens on the A7II and a small one on the A7. If they wanted to cover it fairly, they should have attached the same lens on both.

On article Nikon releases ViewNX-i image browsing software (110 comments in total)
In reply to:

E.J.: Wow, it actually looks like they fixed the retina display MacBook Pro issue. Even though the version number is the same, there is a slight difference in the download size today compared to the initial offering a few days ago. Uninstalling the old and re-installing with a new download fixed the MBP spinning beachball issue.

Interesting, try using the uninstaller that comes with the install and is in the Applications > Nikon > View NXI folder. Then redownload and install again. Something definitely changed as I have several systems that beachballed and after doing that they all work.

The released version still crashes way too often on the Mac platform, especially when tuning Nikon bodies. Hopefully Version 2, when it eventually comes to Mac, will be more stable.

Confirmed to be nothing but spinning beachballs on any Mac Book Pro with Retina display that I can get my hands on (10 systems) - Mavericks or Yosemite - doesn't matter.

Jim Kaye: Hangs for minutes with spinning beach ball on my MacBook Pro, 8 GB RAM, running Yosemite 10.10.2. After force close, same problem on trying to reopen it. Uninstalled it and put NX2 back -- Nikon has to do better than this.

Yup, many of us on Macs with Yosemite having this problem. It installs fine but basically does not work and forces a process hang internally as per the crash diagnostics. Very repeatable on multiple machines.
