On Entry-Level Mirrorless Camera Roundup (2014) article (103 comments in total)

What is entry level?

A person who is buying the top most expensive "ENTRY LEVEL" camera, and will be using "mirrorless" for the first time is "ENTERING" the mirrorless realm for the first time, on that expensive level. It is that person's entry level.

There wasn't much mirrorless choice a few years ago.

We are all entering this era at the same time.

We are all entry level.

Enjoy the company.

On Sony Alpha 77 II firmware update improves AF speed article (153 comments in total)

What Sony should really IMPROVE is the public awareness of their MOUNT SYSTEM.

Walk in NEW customers wouldn't know their A's from their E's.

TrollFree: is this going to be any good for landscapes and seascapes?

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1064 comments in total)

I have all sympathy for DPR reviewers.

They have to dig deep and wrack their brains to find compelling reasons to prop up the model they are reviewing up on a pedestal.

This 7D Mark2 is so last year.

No, sorry... last two years.

Oops! Three years!

CameraLabTester: How exciting it is to be in the middle of the volatile shifting sands of Frame Frame pageantry!

The contenders are punch fighting it out for podium placings, ruining their bikinis... even if there are only three places that are allocated for the THREE of them! (Each would want a brand sweep, obviously... )

Frame Frame pageantry haha! (supposed to be Full Frame pageantry).

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2709 comments in total)

When you start to see a lot of hullabaloo tests and comparisons being pitched left and right, and discussed by opinionated armchair photo commandos in blogs and threads like this one, but that are, in reality, not discernible in comparative quality the majority of the time in the real World: You know that the DSLR innovations and wow factors have run dry and is now running on empty.

This is not only for Canon and this 7DII thing, but to all makers including Nikon, Sony and the also rans.

On Ten things you need to know about the Sony Alpha 7 II article (263 comments in total)

No. 11

Very noticeable on the front and top deck are the extra spaces where the words Sony and 7II can be swapped with a different name... such as Hustle Blood.

On Mid-range Mirrorless camera roundup 2013 article (295 comments in total)

Aaaaas they round the bend for the homestretch...

Sony pulling away by five lengths!

Fujifilm trying to catch up in second place.

Olympus and Panasonic neck and neck fighting it out for third place 10 lengths behind!

Over at the far end... nearing the halfway marker... is a tiring Nikon!

And Canon has just tumbled and crashed into a cloud of dust and smashed shrapnel!

Wait!

Pentax and Samsung has not left the gate!

Yikes!

Hasselblad stables are on fire! A write off indeed!

"As we round the bend, into the home stretch...

Sony pulling away by three lengths, followed Panasonic, Olympus and Samsung neck to neck for second place...

Fuji trying to pass those three with renewed breakaway energy...

At the far stretch, just now, making it at the halfway mark, is Nikon and Canon...

Wait...

Nikon is struggling...

Oooh! Canon has just collapsed and smashed the M into pieces! What a tragedy! The EOS M has disintegrated into oblivion!"

Hasselblad's CEO, IAN Rawcliffe, adds "Fuelled by our ongoing collaboration with Sony and Zeiss, the pocket-sized Stellar models are proving extremely popular. Photographers are delighted to have the option of owning the latest technology married with Hasselblad's design vision and heritage."

There you have it folks: It can't go more looney than this: straight from the horses mouth.

That quote up there looks like every bit of a valid sarcastic comment here in this thread.

Well done Mr. CEO.

If you quickly click on the images, the grip looks like a set of blinking Christmas lights. Well timed for this season...

But, but...

DPR shame on you...

You should have just made us a GIF animation instead of getting us to click incessantly on the next page button...

Just like in Breaking Bad...

You can't totally get rid of the body just by pouring acid over it, in a tub.

You have to scrape the remnants from the basement floor and flush it down the toilet.

They should cut out the TV division.

Disconnect the caboose.

Metz flashes are still relevant in photography.

On Casio targets golfers with Japan-only Exilim EX-FC500S article (36 comments in total)

This camera will sell well in Japan.

The cost of the new camera is a fraction of what these players indulge in and loose in bets.

Cheaper than a new driver...

Hands up, those who will use this!
