  • I wouldn't trust one of anything, with this being 16 TB, you get 2 or more and make a nice RAID. Same as I would with an HDD or any other storage drive.

  • Commented on LG G4 camera review post

    I have an S6 Edge, my Wife an G4. I prefer the S6 as it doesn't clip highlights as easy in default shooting mode (what I use 90% of the time). Lars has done far more analysis though, this is just...

  • Neat camera, but interesting choice of lenses. The iPhone already has a pretty good fixed focal lens of similar field of view. It seems to me a zoom lens would add more to the system, something...

  • The only real use I see for QX series cameras is odd mounting, the one I tried was much too sluggish and annoying to use as a normal camera. Difficult to compose at a choppy 1 to 15 fps when a...

  • It is great when you need to get a shot of a presenter or something, shoot 4k video of the presentation and you have basically full size stills of anything you want. I say presentations because...

  • I haven't looked at specs too closely yet, but most electronic shutters on CMOS are rolling electronic shutters where it might take 1/30 of a second to read out the sensor. This causes a problem...

  • Many of us were reporting that SLR days were numbered many years ago. That is when Canon needed to take notice, it is much too late now.

  • I agree too, but what they are doing is making another model, you can still buy any of the RX100 models new. Don't think of them as Mark 1 or Mark 2, rather as Model 1, 2, 3, or 4, and they each...

  • The SLR is going to disappear faster than I was thinking if they keep releasing cameras like these. Unfortunately, Sony has figured out how to price accordingly.

  • That is one use case, but with my S6 Edge, it is a bit a annoying that the camera protrudes about 1mm out the back (doesn't sit flat on a table). The battery easily lasts a day of moderate use, so...

  • The influx of people in the Samsung forums on these boards, all NX1 related, is quite astounding. I have been there for several years and the new message rate is much higher now.

  • I think it is funny how clueless people are about the Samsung NX1 sensor. It really is a great sensor, better than any current Sony besides the latest crop (remember NX1 has been out for 6 months...

  • 4/3" sensors (micro-4/3) are the same arcane sizing. Basically, anything that is 4/3" or smaller seems sized that way. Nothing wrong with it, but doesn't really make sense.

    All that matters is...

  • Define micromotor? Usually modern CDAF cameras use linear or stepper motors. It really all depends on how much torque is necessary, etc. An 85mm f/1.4 will probably have to use a different focus...

  • $1000 for a 16mm f/1.4 is expensive? What rock have you been living under? Nikon or Canon 14mm f/2.8 lenses are more expensive and two stops smaller aperture. Granted those are for full frame,...
