On Kodak reborn: A look at JK Imaging's 2014 lineup news story (178 comments in total)

I am so anxious to try out this camera. I never had a four thirds and I am really looking forward to use a four thirds on a Kodak. What a gorgeous camera.

On HTC One 2014 leaks, comes with "Duo Camera" post (25 comments in total)

Cell phones are no longer cell phones, they are cameras as it seems that the camera is what these companies are focusing on instead of it being a cell phone. They act like in 10 years all pro photographers will be using a cell phone to shoot a wedding. My gosh what has the camera world come to???

vladimir vanek: what the...? I mean, what's wrong with the world today? Do we need hundreds of phone models in every tenth of inch of screen diagonal? flat, round, black, red, white, blue, with this and that OS, with all sorts of resolutions. one with LED flash, another one with dual LED, and a third one with bi-color dual LED. oh yes, and a xenon of course. those with 8 mpix, 10 mpix, 13 mpix, a water resistant one, crush resistant, made of plastic, made of metals, made of glass... And most importantly, a new one every few months? why don't they make a flawless design, say in 5 different specs and that's it? cooperation instead of competition? and focus on more important things, like saving the planet, feeding people and living happy lives without all those twitters and facebooks even in our bedrooms? sorry for my essay, I'm just tired of this neverending competition that brings nothing but pulling out some money out of everyone's pocket as often as possible.

for graybalanced...most of us didn't grow up with computers and technology and we got along fine without them. So most of us an live with or without it and still do great so I think that is the point that the OP was trying to make.

On Tamrac 5592 Big Wheels SpeedRoller 2X Bag Review article (44 comments in total)
In reply to:

RSJohnson: Please check the dimensions of this "airport friendly" bag to make sure they include the oversize wheels as often the dimensions are bag only excluding wheels and feet. In a recent trip SFO to LIH my trusty carryon was rejected at check in because although the bag dimensions were within UA spec, when they forced me to try and jam the bag into the sizing cage the wheels prevented it from going in. At 22" L it will be at the max for many airlines so if wheels are on top....

I work for American Airlines and I can tell you the wheels will be a problem because the bag size of 45 linear dimensions is for the bag. Not including the wheels. Of course, it will depend on the ticket agent or the flight attendant who has the last say so.

On Instagram responds to clamor around TOS changes post (79 comments in total)

I don't have but a few images on there that aren't anything special but they are mine and I don't want them sold and I don't think that it is fair to steal another one's images.

On Nikon Coolpix S800c Android camera first look article (103 comments in total)

What a neat idea. I never heard of this before until now. I guess all you need is a phone added to it and then you have it all...lol...Crazy idea but I am actually thinking of purchasing one.

On Review: Nokia 808 PureView article (353 comments in total)

Sounds interesting but I don't think Sprint here in the US would agree to allow us to use phones that are not available through them or I would have purchased a phone I like on the market and not what they sell.

I am not a pro photographer but if I was, I would be pretty upset by this.

I think it is sad that photographers are treated this way. If musicians are trying to force this issue, you would think they would ban all photography and hire their own to take pictures.

I feel for the pros because the way things are changing today, pretty soon into the near future, there won't be any such thing as pro photographers.

That guy is so lucky to be alive and I would have done the same whether the equipment was insured or not. You can't put a price on your life.

Ryanide: LOVE IT. Keep up the good work.

I can't wait for the Forums to go to the mobile format, since I use that the most!!! : ) Next Please!??

I totally agree with you. I am rooting for the forums to be next.

I am shocked by this. I live in the US and haven't bought one or plan to but with the increase, that would change my mind if I were thinking of buying.

I actually think they did this because of the extra cost to them for the free card and card reader they were sending out to some owners.

On Just posted: Our Canon Pixma Pro-1 printer review news story (69 comments in total)

At 1300.00, this printer is for professional photographers. It wouldn't be worth it for hobbyists like myself to buy and use this printer. I never checked the costs of the inks but I can only imagine how high they are looking at the price of the printer. I just don't see how beneficial financially this can be to anyone when prints at a printer are so cheap.

The problem with a 41mp camera is there is no cell phone company that is capable of allowing anyone to send such a high mp picture through picture mail. The phone would crash or it would take all night for it to go through. I have a huge problem trying to send an 8mp picture with my phone. If they keep this up, our cell phone bills will go up so high we won't be able to afford them because it takes a lot of bandwidth to send picture mail and the cell companies just don't have enough air space to accomplish this and if they buy more then guess who pays for it in the end? We the consumers do and I don't want to pay a penny more.

Aside from this, what are cell phone companies trying to accomplish in the long run by creating better camera phones??? Do they hope to accomplish beating out the compact cameras someday? I can't see that happening.

I wonder if they will make a version for the Android phones. It looks pretty cool but I refuse to pay Apple that much money for a cell phone.
