On Canon EOS 7D Mark II: A professional's opinion article (440 comments in total)

In my opinion, her opinion, although opinionated, is an opinion worth looking into, as other opinions will digress from each other's opinion like a loose pinion gear...

If the output of this gadget can be utilized in the Google Photo Sphere and Street View app then it is worth getting one.

If it is a "stand alone" product with proprietary app like Lytro... then it is a dead duck on a murky lake...

Third party add on suppliers are already on the ball, with perfume enhancements like: "smell of new car", "smell of newly opened Apple™ packaging", "smell of new sneakers", "smell of burned bacon", "smell of dried morning drool", etc.

...and don't forget that third party big time supplier: "The Rip Off Camera Covers Pty Ltd". Camera cover supplies in all colors and quirks: "Hustle Blood Woodgrain", "Leica Dot Matrix", etc. etc. etc. etc.

I want that black tape.

It ties the whole camera together like Lebowski.

Where can I buy it?

More like the death of sesame seed sized sensors once the consumers have come to their sesame senses.

Manufacturers have been churning, all this time, great optical glass only to focus on sesame seeds.

Its time to crack open those walnuts.

Its about time Leica abandoned the sesame seed sized sensors for good.

No matter how the consumers might Leica da camera, they won't Leica using tiny sesame seed sensors.

Not impressed until someone invents Batman's "Utility Belt".

He has a hang glider and welding equipment inside those waist band!

Adam West should be proud.

On Week in review: 8 things we learned article (48 comments in total)

8 Things we learned this week:

1. The monkey is also a photographer. The Poppy is also a flower.

2. Instagram Hyperlapse is great on any video viewer site except Instagram.

3. A breath of relief for a whole week without Nikon 1 on the landing pages.

4. DPReview staff are really nice people.

5-8. Repeat above.

One thing ironical about the Instagram Hyperlapse app is that it operates within the Instagram name, which we all know is limited to ferociously boring square framing.

The Hyperlapse experience works best on 16:9 framing such as what can be supported on Facebook.

A lot of users are uploading to Facebook instead of Instagram.
