Martin87: These cameras are so pointless in this age of mobile phone cameras.

Maybe, but how's the zoom on your phone?

This is one of those products I can't envision using under any circumstances. Like the previous poster said; my wallet is safe.

HowaboutRAW: How did anyone ever shoot in a beach in the 1980s with an SLR, just how?

With reflectors. Flash sync with those older units was a real pain, and most times not possible. go back even further, like the 60s and 70s, and lots of things just weren't possible. For example, I used to shoot a film called High Speed Ektachrome. It was ISO 160. And sports photos were nowhere near the quality of today's shots due to two things: amazing AF and great low light shooting. If you can, take a look at some of the photos from the first indoor superbowls. Not great.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2702 comments in total)

ozturert, excellent summary. For the record, I shoot only a GH3 right now, but if I went back to shooting high school football, this would be the camera I'd buy. The 7D I shot back then was excellent, this one looks even better, especially the AF. Really nice cam.

toomanycanons: When's the last time any of you bought a Metz product?

I bought a Metz flash for my Panny GH3 last year. Before that, a smaller Metz flash for my GX1. Both are excellent.

Sure hope Metz survives and keeps making their excellent flashes.

NO, they'll buy it instead of the D610 because it is a far superior tool for action photography than the D610.

Holy crap, that's a lot of tech gear for a bile trip!

hiro_pro: i am having a a love/hate relationship with this post. i love my d600. in fact i would go so far as to say the camera could count as revolutionary for its price/feature set. then dpreview has to publish this and i see this camera fixes all those niggling flaws in my d600. now i wonder if nikon is going to cut the price on the d610 (because it doesnt compete well with the d750) or simply discontinue it.

Good question, and I honestly don't see the point of the D610 any more. I wonder how many will choose that over the D750? And if they do, why?

I may be in the minority, but I really like this cam and may buy one to complement my m4/3 setup. Great feature set, and I expect the IQ to be very similar to the 610, maybe a notch better. I'll wait and see, and wait until ACR can handle the files.

On Nikon D750 First-impressions review preview (1422 comments in total)

This is the one I'll likely buy. I have no need to the resolution of the 810, and was disappointed with the AF in the 610. the 750 is smaller, lighter, and more capable. Yes, it evolutionary and not the quantum leap some wanted, but it looks like it suits my needs pretty well.

But will these work with third party apps, like 645 Pro? If not, no interest from me.

Didn't Panny already introduce a 4K action cam?

Ah, last weekend's Pan Mass. Got any other shots? I rode the Sturbridge to Provincetown route. And yes, Saturday's rains were epic.

In order for the aerosol can to explode, you'd need oxygen inside the can. It is highly unlikely that the can would explode since there is no oxygen inside it, and the pressure of the gas coming out also deters the flame from retreating back into the can. Same reason the flame on a gas stove doesn't travel back down the gas pipe; it needs oxygen to burn. However, the open flame is another matter...
