(Photo)shoot them!!!

Dear Readers and Friends!
Today we are talking about "smart"phones,
DSRLs and technology business.
1) It is about two weeks since
I bought a new "smart"phone, the SONY XPERIA Z1.

2) Every follower knows that I got seriousely into digital photography in end of  May: for my 20th birthday I made myself a gift: a "CONSUMER" DSLR , the NIKON D3300.

Problem 1): PLEASE SONY SOLVE IT!!!
As soon as I got the Xperia Z1 in my hands, I set the Manual camera mode to have the best from this great great camera!
So I:
- Put the highest resolution 20.7 MP 5248x3936
- set the focus mode my taste
- Aaaand...Why the hell HDR doesn't work????!!!!
So I call Sony Mobile Italia and I talk to "Melissa", a call center operator, she says it sounds strange and
as a solution, she suggests me to completely reset the phone.
I think about that and I just don't want to delete all apps and contacts and everything so I just go to "apps" menu I select "camera" and I touch "delete data".
This way, only the camera will go back to default options.
Did that, I go straight to HDR and with 8 MP or LOWER it is finally ON... but as soon as I select 20.7 MP...
again, it is OFF.
I think about what just happened and start suspecting that the limit is not physically due to famous G lens f2
but it's due to "Camera" App.
Then I call Melissa back and ask if such a limitation is lenses' fault, and she confirms me that the phone has been programmed this way by the company, SONY.
And in the end of the call, Melissa says: "in new Xperia Z3 you can select the resolution... "
But with Xperia Z1 you can also do that!!!
So first: Italian Sony call center operators don't even know their company's products and second, I can't believe that: the company unlocks features (your current phone already has!!!) only in next models?
I DON'T WANT TO BUY Xperia Z3 which has almost the same lens and features, I just want my CURRENT Z1 to work FULLY, in all it's smartness!!!
AT LEAST IN MANUAL MODE.
I mean with HDR ON, Image Stabilization ON, Highest Resolution, Object Tracking Focus etc. all in the same shot.
SONY G LENS CAN DO THAT, RIGHT???!!!
Otherwise, it sounds like a great fraud!
"Problem" 2) NIKON PLEASE THINK ABOUT THAT!!!
What is the criteria with whom
 you decide if a camera body
is consumer or professional???
Is Nikon D300s to consider Pro really,
with it's mere 12,3 MP?
Is Nikon D3300 to consider Consumer
with 24,2 MP and 12.800 ISO???!!!
THINK BEFORE BUY.
YOUR BRAIN IS THERE FOR A REASON.

LVMH and Hermès mend relations

LVMH and Hermès mend relations.
Paris, September 3rd 2014 
The President of the Commercial Court of Paris, 
Mr. Franck Gentin, proposed to LVMH and Hermès a 
conciliation in order to bring to an end the conflicts between the 
two groups and restore a climate of 
positive relations between them. 
The two parties having reacted favorably to this proposal,
 signed an agreement under which the 
LVMH Group will distribute all its Hermès 
shares to its shareholders, on the understanding that 
LVMH’s largest shareholder, Christian Dior

receives to its 
own shareholders.

not to acquire any shares in 
Hermès for the next five years.

the capital of Hermès International.

 LVMH and Hermès have brought to an end the conflict, and 
all related actions, between them.
