Not enough "O"s. The correct answer is "Pentax is doooooooooooooooomed."

Let's hope not. As much as i think they are playing catch up with the rest of the players, they can still deliver a one two punch with a surprise body or two. Looks like the lens variety is being addressed. They better hurry up though.

I have things with voice command. I generally keep it off.
Very poetic, considering what is your username

Do you reckon they'll be any leaks of the new camera pre CP+, or they'll leave the unveiling till there???

Recently Pentax seem to be leaking stuff in advance of the shows, in order to get a bit of coverage in the press.

Interested in the new lenses, but very much doubt they'll be in my budget.

Only if it is ready to ship, which CES seemed to cast doubt on. The K-50 for example was leaked by a french retailer.

Putins special police have HOMO written in mirror image on their back. Russians are strange.

It's not the world, it's abbreviation. It's not Putin's. It's special police squad in any time.
It was created as the special forces of the Soviet Militsiya in 1988.

ОМОН means Special Purpose Mobile Unit.

But in Russian - Unit Mobile of Special Purpose.
O - means Unit, M - Mobile, second O - Special, H - Purpose.

But it's good joke. On target.

Nobody like Police.

There were camera's in phones long before the iPhone. Apple didn't invent that. Nor did they invent the touch screen. Nor were they the first to use them together. What Apple did was throw in their marketing weight the moment their was enough fast internet available for a mass market connected device.
Exact.

Photography is in a very very different place now than it was before the introduction of the iPhone in 2007.

In less than 10 years they've gone from not having a camera to the most popular camera on the planet and have provided the platform on which a whole new era of social photography (Facebook, Instagram, etc…) was built.

So I'd put the iPhone right up there with the Brownie for cameras with the greatest impact on society.
I didn't know FB and Instagram were Apple' subsidiaries...



+ apologies and regrets as far as photophones are concerned... :




Sorry because i couldn't find more recent stats.



Moreover, we still wait for i-photo replacement, and we already know that's gonna be a "dumb proprietary soft"...

That's all for today's Apple "photog performance", isn't it ?
