duchamp: Nikon distributor in Israel, Hadar, sent today a message to all stores that all faulty cameras (with official warranty) in stock and sold will be replaced.

To Mike FL,
stores were told that not all cameras have this issue. I think Nikon will issue "an article" on identifying affected products, as they did not long ago with D810 "bright spots" problem.

To HowaboutRAW,
in my opinion this a great move by the local distributor. Keeping in mind they are not representatives and have buy their stock from Nikon. This quick response, as well as previous actions regarding D600 and D810 issues, gains them a lot of positive reputation in the eyes of customers and justifies the 10-15% price difference against the gray market.

On Pentax K-3 Review preview (501 comments in total)
In reply to:

Yoda boy: Pentax ( Ricoh ) is still introducing new products that were likely in the pipeline before their takeover from Hoya. They have the ability to create a niche product by introducing a better and more directed line of lenses. WR and A* are really the only way to go if you have a K 7 or newer body as they create a complete system, especially now that the series II flashes have been created.

For K 5 and K 3 photographers, there also should be a 10 mm or 10-20 mm WR lens, preferably with a 2.8 or 3.5 fixed f to fill a void in their lens lineup.

As to an articulating LCD screen, I personally don't see the point as the more serious photographers seem to be quite happy with fixed screens as is the norm for high end Nikon and Canon. Personally, I think one pays more attention to details when looking through a viewfinder.

For macro photography articulated screen is a blessing.

princecody: Wonder what camera & lens was used?

Most likely M-Monochrome. Expensive artwork can't be done by some mass produktion cheap dslr cameras. :)

This looks like an advertisement.
Anyway, although the pictures are awesome the photographer is not someone eager to share his "making of" secrets.

In reply to:

biza43: These actually make sense, it's just a downsize from their similar range for DSLRs. Believe or not, I have yet to find a good backpack that can take my E-M1 and lens, plus a small laptop, plus a variety of miscellaneous stuff, for travel.

This might be it, finally.

To biza43,
if you went for mirrorless for less size and weight you may consider a tablet instead of a laptop.

Have you tried Lowepro Photo Hatchback 22L AW?

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II: A professional's opinion article (500 comments in total)
In reply to:

marc petzold: A good review - thanks for posting it. Like always, different people have different needs. Only one thing sounds funny - about the asking price of the 7D II - for that price i'd get a decent FF DSLR or DSLM, i think the 7D II is somehow overpriced for the features, yes there's the 10FP/S speed, but besides that...it's just APS-C, not Fullframe.

You pay more for:
1. 10fps;
2. 65 focus points;
3. A separate focus control;
4. 200k shutter actuations.

A sport/wildlife photog might want it as a backup camera. If you use your camera for taking occasional pictures of your family and sightseeing you won't understand the pricetag of the 7dm2.

In reply to:

ConanD: For those that really like this camera, you can thank me. True to form, as soon as I purchased the D610, here comes something that has improvements in the areas I would like (shutter speed, autofocus, processor, et. al.). Anyone want to buy a used D610 for retail price?

+1

On Fujifilm X100T Overview preview (644 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sebit: 'T' as in Third time's the charm? I don't think so.

Depending on whether I use the screen or the viewfinder I get 200 to 280 shot on my X100. I dont remember going beyond 1000 shots on the D700, but my D610 lasts for 1300 shots. However, when using solely the live view I cant expect more than 100. Anyway in my opinion every photog must have an extra battery for his camera just in case.

Do it outside on a windy day.

The Hasselblad bands and pantyhose will fit only medium format.

Ken Phillips: I have used a mirror with a "window" sash pattern and real curtains taped on the thing for indoor portraits, 'cuz the light coming through the window is never quite right (or, like me, your studio has no windows!)

The shape of the square softbox is made to mimic light coming through the window.

Some tips can be very useful when on an emergency shootout (nothing but the camera available) and one needs to improvise.
