Marksphoto: can we get instructions on how to make these in Canada from local bottles?

Avoid Coors Light Aluminium bottles as they don’t shatter on impact…
Don’t forget to add a slice of lime if Corona bottles are used.

Can’t wait for the new enthusiast level Aston Martin...

In reply to:

spiderhunter: I was hoping that someone who have tried out this camera for action photography would tell me how good is the AF for tracking purposes, like for fasting moving subjects ( like cheetahs or eagles) coming towards or moving away from the camera.

It’s very likely close to the D600/610 in AF capability… Nikon might try to tweak the algorithms a bit but the result will be pretty similar I would think...

Funny how this camera is referred as something for the “flush old geezers” to buy… Are those the same geezers who had their life savings wiped off at the start of the current economic crisis?

Poss: D610 in FE2 clothes?

Actually to be honest, it looks more like an F4...

I have an F3… but this looks more like an FM/FE2 (I have an FE2 as well)

Woodlink: As a company purportedly built on the crossroads of technology and the humanities, Apple sure knows how to drag its feet updating a "pro" product like Aperture.

If the photographic arts AREN'T the epitome of a discipline squarely in that crossroad, I dunno what is.

How Apple cannot build a product that can match or exceed Lightroom is beyond me. Too busy raking in royalties from Angry Birds I suppose.

Those Pros you’re dismissing so easily are one of the reason why Apple did not go under in mid ‘90s. They are the reason Apple still exists today.

A nod to those old geesers every year or so would not be too much to ask given the size and resources of the biggest tech company on the planet.

Consumers are an unreliable, bitchy bunch. They could (and did so in many occasions) move onto the next shining dangling thing in front of them, especially if it’s a buck less…

In reply to:

Neodp: Where's Nikon?

Formula: (Dear Nikon),

Mirror-less, FULL FRAME (and APS-C), rangefinder-like version, improving on the D610.

Superb EVF. (Side or flash hump; preferably side with little protrusion. )

Best AF-C phase detect (Nikon 1 did it).

*ALL* the other photographic benefits, TOGETHER.

...and now for the real idea:

INCLUDED F-MOUNT ADAPTER; that fills the greater flange-back space (where the mirror was), *and* offers a full electronic, pass through; for all capable F-mount lenses!

This takes the stress out of creating new Nikkor lenses. (They made those Nikon 1 lenses; didn't they)

With that, included adapter+, you could adapt almost any type lens (full backwards compatibility); and it would not demote Nikon's F-mount, high quality, lenses; including their excellent per value, priced lenses. You could still use a pancake (adapted too); for street setup; for one example. Some of the aftermarket adapters (to other systems) are small. You may even be able to run Leica lenses.

I like dreaming too... :-)
Would be nice if it would become true at some point, especially for fools like me who are heavily invested in Nikkor and Sigma glass...

I wonder when Nikon will update the firmware on my D3s...
Soon I hope... soon indeed... yes...

I think the first casualty will be Leica and not Canon/ Nikon. Leica becomes now even more of a luxury fashion accessory like a Patek Philippe or a Zonda.

rallyfan: Two options. A street photographer is

(A) a pretentious tourist
(B) really creepy

They're not mutually exclusive. For shame. Get help.

Two options. A rally fan is:

(A) a pretentious outdoorsy motorsport fan with no life.
(B) really suicidal for staying in the path of fast moving vehicles

They're not mutually exclusive. For shame. Get help.

jdc562: All these images would deserve derisive critiques in today's photo forums. Nearly all these photos violate the Rule of Thirds. Cindy Sherman's shot #96 is mangled: one shoulder is cut into, the other arm is incomplete, and the top of of the girls' head is chopped off--very sloppy framing. Gursky's horizon in the L.A. shot isn't level. His Rhein II shot is soft. Both Steichen's and Prince's images have unacceptable levels of noise--they shouldn't bother us with their images until they've learned more about exposure, ISO, and photo processing. In addition, Prince's composition would have been much better if the cowboy were riding into the frame, not out of it. The images in the Gilbert & George piece are all too soft and badly exposed. I hope these photographers haven't quit their day jobs thinking they might have a future in photography.

Oy vey! This whole "mini thread" was actually entertaining to go through... :-)

The new MacPro is fine and dandy but any hardware is sold by the brilliant software that works beautifully smooth and fast only on that platform. I can get good hardware anywhere. And unfortunately I can get great pro software everywhere else but Apple.
LR has leapfrogged Aperture. Twice.
Apple doesn't seem to care anymore about the pros that keep them alive in the dark hours of the mid '90s. They're too busy focusing on the teenage crowd now...
