rockjano: Great emotional pictures.

The question if the people are involved happy about that these pics went public...

@Amadou Diallo. I'm not a psychiatrist but you made a Freudian Slip with the first word in your reply. You wrote "NEX". Are you feeling guilt that a in depth review of the NEX 6 still is not out :-))

CameraLabTester: There are times when the images of real life DV are meant to be for investigators only and not for public consumption.

@Amadou Diallo.

Instead of wasting your time with replies to this story, how bout writing some needed camera reviews.

BrianSaunders: Leave the issue of showing children carried supposedly killed in a missile attack. Have any of you ever seen what bodies look like from the explosion? Their to clean, not a mark on the faces. The rigor mortise alone would horrify you. I tend to lean toward photos from these people are faked and usually the photographer has an agenda. I'm not incentive, my heart breaks knowing that children are caught up in war.

@Leichhardt. I told you to take the children out of the equation. Obviously that blinds you from being objective, the two children are real, if they died from the blast, I would think we'd see injuries to the face. If they died from the concussion we may not see injuries but we definitely would see black and blueing. A mortician could clean that up but we are led to believe the children were picked up and displayed immediately. Another thing the bodies are wrapped in plastic, that to me suggests some time passed until a photographer could be found to take some pictures for the world to see. Maybe he was part of the deception and please don't say that's ridicules because staged phots have been around since the invention of the camera and photographers wanting a more sensation picture. After all the majority of the people seeing this are going to be horrified, their not going to take a closer look. Would you feel the same way if this photo was of two Israeli children?

Harry Stone: Thanks for a nice review, kids. Due to physical problems I have to give up my beloved Canon 40D and EFS 17-55 f2.8 and EF70-200 f4. The Nikon P7700 will, I believe, allow me to continue shooting with only a minimal loss of quality.

The Nikon P7700 is a good choice. I have the P7100 which has a tilt screen, I'd rather have articulated. I would give up the viewfinder for articulation.

On Alien embryo! in the What Is This? challenge (13 comments in total)

Looks like Kelp. More than likely it broke loose or pulled off where it attaches on a reef, thus the "rock". Be care you non native Californians, the Kelp forests are radio active and the photographer may really have a mutated plant. I can really see an eye. And, how do we know if the photographer is a Sasquatch tending his UW garden?

I bought the P7100 and it does the jobThe pics, video, size and weight, fits in my jacket pocket and that I paid $388 - $10 gift card = $378, plus Best Buy customer service sprung for next day air, I'd say it's hard to find faults. @ $499 well that's a different story. If your thinking about getting one make sure your getting it for under $400, it's fun to use.

Would have given more stars if not for the blurred focus of berries. Lens front focus?
