Which do you think, Keith?

Did you catch the latest vid clip with Gove? Dear, oh dear. Diplomacy must be a word missing from his dictionary. I have a feeling he will not last long in power. I can see that business will get in the way too much, and that he will either be hoofed out for confusing lines of demarcation, or he will elect to call it a day all by himself. It would be a scream if the sons decided to cut him right out of any return to heading the Evil Empire. If that is legally impossible, then perhaps it might indicate that separation between man and companies has not really been achieved... interesting time ahead. The lads are old enough to be progeny of the displaced wife, are they not? I wonder where filial loyaties truly lie.

All I can say is that I crashed my DJI Mavic pro drone in the river.  Glad I didn't have a Hasselblad attached to it!   :o

The fact is that few companies are still are owned by their original founders, and that it is very unlikely that DJI want to destroy the brand they are alleged to be investing in.  I see no reason to assume DJI won't be good custodians.  Let's give them a chance.

I agree with you Ettore, and thank you for saying it.
I found Kevin's article interesting, and I also felt a bit embarrassed at the virulence of some of the responses, which suggested to me that some folks were reading into the article things that Kevin never said.

I'm glad Kevin does have a thick enough skin not to get upset by the negative comments. A few LuLa members have shown often enough that it is possible to disagree with a viewpoint without getting mean about it.

My feelings also.

Ain't what you do, it's the way what you do it? Who knows - early hours yet!

Thing is, anyone with a lead to the news can see the self-proclamations at will; it simply lies beyond denial. John Wayne instead of Ronny Reagan? It's all showbiz today, innit?

I see, too, on my favourite-to-hate news channel that a 'celebrity' called Lindsay Lo-something has turned to embrace Islam; is she aware of the dangers of apostasy should she change her mind next time she changes her undies, which I asume she wears but I can't, of course, guarantee? That she wears them, I mean, not whether or not they are of merchantable quality.

Oh, today's kids!

I also agree with the overwhelmingly positive comments here. I read the vitriol in the other threads and fora regarding Kevin's article and keep going back and studying it again only to find that I still just don't get what people are reading into it.

Hi,

That is my take on the issue, too.

Best regards

Hi Kevin,

Nice review, thanks a lot.

Best regards
Erik

Thank You.  I report what I know.  Not a rumor.  I must admit my skin has become a lot thicker since being part of LuLa.  I know other website content providers have the same thing happen to them.  I look at comments by people on other sites and can't believe what some people have to say. My father always told me if you don't have something good to say then don't say it.  I do believe that when the Hasselblad thing plays out it will come to show I was right.  In the meantime, I am just about finished a very detailed review on the X1D.

Thank again, and I am passionate about this site and photography.  I am not going to let a few downers discourage that for me.
