Great idea - yes please
gskolenda: Well, I don't miss them, and it's very poor mgmt. that brought them to bankruptcy! No Vision! They should have built a website that was very much like B & H Photo. Run with a business model that is working. Had the CEO done his home work he could have put together a business plan that could have been sold for a strong credit line. Close all the other stores and have One huge showcase/Distribution store in Chicago. with good hard working employees with an incentive plan. I think they they could have had a chance. There loss not our's!
I'm sure all the people who've lost their jobs will feel heart warmed by your sympathy.
If only they'd had you in charge
offertonhatter: I spoke to one of the people at a UK branch today. They are unaffected by this. I don't know how this works if your parent company in the US goes under yet the UK arm is unaffected, surely it would be considered an asset. I guess some legal bod in business law would know how this works.
I am glad though, as the UK stores are very good, and I always go there for studio equipment as there is not many other places around.
UK/Europe isn't a subsidiary, apparently, but separate.
greypixelz: sad he had to reach this age in order to understand that suffering and horror is not 'photojournalism' or 'the public's right to be informed'.there is such a thing as human dignity and dying is part of it. photographing death or any kind of suffering for public display is undignified and disqualifies the photographer as a human being. man should be immortalized on the highest peaks, not the deepest of valleys. this whole culture of decay and death is satanic in nature and goes against what man really is. the spirit of humanity is about rising from the abyss, not falling in it.God bless you all!
"disqualifies the photographer as a human being"?
Disgusting notion, contemptible statement
SalmanH: Guys, this is a CAMERA review, no need to take it so personally. If you like the camera, buy it. Why get so upset about what other people think? Once again, this is a camera DPR have reviewed, not your child.
This is DPR, where criticising my camera is at least as bad as murdering my choldren
There are persistent claims that the picture is some kind of fake (it wast staged, or the soldier was simply falling over - not shot). I don't know where the "expert" opinion is these days.
Anyone have any yo-to-date information (not random speculation please)?
