And of course, how does a French student hold her liquor? By the ears!

That professor who's letting students assign their own grades where were they when I was an undergraduate? I would have spent a lot less time in the library and more in the pub!

You must have been real alarmed by Bowie and Bolan, then, NG. :D

Thanks, Brian, I've always admired the way you strive to make an interesting photo, and are not afraid to go the comic route. That's *real* photography, whether you're being paid for it or not.

When I read some clown posting that they're trading in their gear to buy something that does 20 frames per second, I think, I never want to see twenty frames of your cup of coffee, a flower or your dog. I've seen a DSLR picture of a park bench, I also don't want to see a mirrorless picture of a park bench. The handwringing over lenses (I've got plenty of 'em) in threads bores me too.

Upgrade our attitude, not our gear, I reckon! It's cheaper, too. :)

Be like the pros, Tighhelander, use wired tethering for that. WiFi is too slow.

Buy Image Transmitter from Ricoh.

A woman is at a wake for her beloved husband, talking to an old friend.

'It's tragic really that Alf died because no one knew his blood type.' the widow said.

'I'll never forget the inspirational last words he whispered to me: 'Be positive.'

All the brands work the same way. They're all slow. They all use WiFi modules that use up very little power.

Thanks, mate, I know they're conventions, but I'm usually quite bored by people saying what camera, what lens, what settings they used to get a shot. How someone got that shot, their thought processes, has always made me sit upright. :)

Sure is. I've even shot with it cropped on the K-1 a couple of times, it's that good.

I think an estimate was 6 percent extrapolating and making assumptions from a poll here.

Thanks, Les!

It was at a dog show, Jabobby, I saw the phone and the dog and thought, there's a picture here, and sort of wriggled my way past some people to get to the scene. With the owner just there in the background, I changed my mind and stepped over to the right so that all three were there at different depths.

The husky looks pretty happy with himself, doesn't he? Rock star material.

Ricoh 3.1% Consumer Electronics Market Share in Japan

Yeah, again, it's BCN, so useless IMHO, a stat reported by certain electronics goods chain stores in Japan who might cater for the low end.

I've never taken at face value their past claims that Canon sell more mirrorless there than Sony. For starters, Sony have their own stores, and that's where cashed up Japanese prosumers and Sony fanbois would tend to go. I think even niche brand Ricoh have their own shop in Tokyo, IIRC.

In the United States, surely B&H, Adorama, Amazon, etc are where most Pentax bodies are sold from these days, less so brick and mortar places that are themselves struggling.

Yep, firmware is software. The camera can never do anything (GPS, WiFi, 4k video, IBIS) the hardware wasn't capable of in the first place.

Ignore BCN stats if used in any argument.

CIPA stats are close to definitive, but of course don't reveal breakdown according to brand.

It is rare even for shareholders to know exactly what and how many products an electronics company has sold.

The opposite. It flattens, lacks distortion/drama.

Just aesthetics.

As explained before, BCN stats are nearly worthless, and should not be used in any argument, IMHO.

CIPA stats are close to definitive.

Yep, posters who want a 'me too' strategy are horribly mistaken, IMHO, Broo. It's a wonder they bought a Pentax product in the first place, it hasn't been mainstream for years!

In the Welcomes and Introductions section of this forum, we do get people crossing over from other platforms, including all the mirrorless ones, and a guy who was an Fstoppers tog of the month and convenes fashion workshops I attend occasionally here in Melbourne has just bought himself a 645Z, not a Hassy or Phase One or Fuji, and not prompted by me.

It does surprise me in an increasingly homogenous world culturally that there are still some people who have discernment, but they're there.
