On 1991 Nikon-Kodak hack was first DSLR in space news story (50 comments in total)
In reply to:

Just a Photographer: Pretty advanced for that time!

But ironically the Shuttle doesn't fly anymore, Kodak went broke and Nikon is to follow if they don't start innovating soon....

Why would Nikon break? They can add D800 sensor to D5 body... And D5s can be with D800E sensor...

nothin' to be worried ;)

( well surely any p&s cam will disappear smaller than 1" sensor or worse than F.2.8 aperture.. And no life for any mirror less system which has smaller than micro 43 or focusing in minute the technology aka, eos m ;) )

On Olympus sued for $273 million over accounting scandal news story (42 comments in total)

What is the ISO number ? What is the F number? What is the zooming range ?

As a photography enthusiasts, I care these number. Price comes later (however it can stop me to buy something, if its out of my budget.).
I guess here is that kinda web page. Or is it ?

Dear Mr Gates,

Why don´t you shake hands with Adobe and start to have flash support for your mobile devices?

You know, you can beat the crap out all the "app,flapp,market, play etc..." stuff, dont you ?

Sony, has a challenge waiting for itself. They have made a product segment that, considering hobbyists"only" and try to create an atmosphere like "hey consumer dude! Look pro's also using it!!"

Their biggest challenge is the existing system;DSLR! and second biggest challenge (according to price tag) a brand; LEICA! Third biggest challenge, is the MICRO FOUR/THIRD SYSTEM, which contains the most affordable products throughout the range.

Sony has teams of developers, market researchers, sales executives. I believe they consider their own risks.

İf this camere same as my lumia 1520, all folks here should take it serious. See some snapshots on my Flickr account if interested.

beautiful background blur, manual focusing. Only thing I can complain could be; lacking of physical accessories. You can use your iPhone
- lightmeter
- pro voice recorder
- pro gaming device.

1520 is so strong in both hard & software, I wish to see own accessories as Sony Xpreia family, and 3rd party stuff as iPhone...
