  • That's how a camera company, who doesn't want all its users to become blind, handles a product defect.

  • Nothing a firmware update won't fix!

  • Living in a hole? Canon first disabled third party batteries 4 years ago. Sony started with coded batteries. It takes a month at most to adjust.

  • Mark you're absolutely right. And I hereby challenge you to forever only hire photographers who charge you gas money or less. For your wedding, your childrens' weddings, everything. You can even...

    a tilting touch screen is a negative in any serious camera.

  • Commented on Nikon D5300 Review preview

    Yeah, the delay's probably because you have a crappy slow card.

  • "this is for the folks that dabble"

    Do they honestly believe anyone would pay $250 for their image?
    Delusional.

    More chance making a sale at shutterstock.

  • Commented on Canon updates firmware for EOS-1D X news story

    I'm sure michonn doesn't actually own a camera. Who owns a flagship and spends their time whining about unimportant things? Next thing michonn will ask for a firmware update that increases the MP...

    How exactly would that happen? Can you upgrade a 3Ghz CPU to 4Ghz via firmware? Can you upgrade a 16GB SD card to 32GB via firmware? Can you upgrade a 30cm ruler to 40cm via firmware?

    Does anyone...

    Nice, we've always known Zeiss users cared more about prestige and looks than actual quality of gear. Not that Zeiss lenses look any good.

  • Commented on DxO releases Optics Pro 9.1 news story

    Each year DXO claims a new breakthrough in ISO/noise management. Each year I see little difference. If you always shootnoisy underexposed images, maybe you can have a try. I'd just wait for v10...

  • Commented on DxO releases FilmPack 4.5 news story

    I don't know how many types of film people want to emulate, but to 'add' 2 films a year and ask for the upgrade price is really trying hard.

  • Not only that, my new shoes don't even have an SD card slot!

  • Commented on Canon EOS 70D Review preview

    Honestly, given how terrible 60D was, good to see a good 70D.

  • Commented on Canon EOS 70D Review preview

    7d isn't getting a II

  • Commented on Canon EOS 70D Review preview

    " It's only 1.4 times smaller than Canon APSC."
