  • Oh, blah. A horrifically expensive cell phone camera, just what I needed - now I can throw my OMD E-M5 in the garbage, thank goodness! The absence of zoom, lack of manual controls, requirement for...

  • Sorry, I don't usually get in the way of trolls, but nerd2 - just.... wow. You don't really understand what the equivalence issue is about, do you? Perhaps you need to re-read the DPR articles....

  • It would if it were an android.... She could also download her shots to iTunes and print from there, but she doesn't want to f around with flash drives and computers and whatnot, she just wants her...

  • What? No WiFi means no printing from a phone.... Who does canon think their market is with this printer? Not a typical dSLR owner, I have an inkjet printer for my photos so I can print larger than...

  • Nice, Sony's filling out their FE line. Too bad this one is so expensive, $1000 for a consumer speed super zoom? Hopefully it's sharp as a tack....

  • Shame to see them struggling, and a darned shame that people will be hurt. I never thought their product made sense for me as a stills shooter - I always want to be in control of the focus point as...

  • Commented on a preview

    Very nice, Olympus! Especially excited to see the fully articulated screen - something I didn't miss until I had one..... also the bounce and swivel flash.

    not quite as good as the D810, but way...

  • Very cool. Underwater equivalent of a game camera - wonder if it has a motion detector?

  • @Biro: I agree with your sentiments. The ZS40 was exciting when it was announced, but that nasty VF and sub-par image quality made it's price a joke. Looks like they addressed those issues...

  • I still wish there could be some older cameras added as comparison points - it would make the samples so much more relevant and useful if I had in hand any of the cameras in the list....

  • Commented on Connect post Motorola Moto X (2014) camera review

    I agree. They (that is, Android and Google) need to reconsider the removable storage thing; I lived with an 8gb nexus 4 for a year and the lack of storage drive me completely nuts. Not all of us...

  • I just picked up a used LF-1 a couple days ago, an I was wondering about the battery too - I took maybe 50 test shots (15 day return window, so I gotta know whether it's working right) and the...
