We look forward to seeing your entry next year.

In reply to:

InTheMist: Is there something like this that accepts an actual battery? I could use this.

Thanks Richard! I really didn't know about this.

wlad, I did know about LED flashlights, thank you :/
But they're not ideal for photography for several reasons, white balance and uniformity of the beams being the largest.

In reply to:

davidevans1: If your hiking you won't want to be carrying water you can't drink, so you may as well carry some cord and strap your drinking water bladder to the tripod, if you need the weight. As others have said, most centre column tripods have a hook anyway don't they?

Exactly what I do: Camelback on the hook.

On All-in-one: Ona Capri bag review article (172 comments in total)

I have an Ona Brixton. Ona make luxurious, high quality, durable leather bags - but heavy.

I just wish the side pockets were big enough for a water bottle.

Really fantastic video!

You touched all the important points, had a background story and the production values are super.

On Real-world test: Going pro with the Samsung NX1 article (349 comments in total)
In reply to:

tabloid: Looks like SLR cameras with mirrors flapping up and down have had their day.
I bought a 3200 and tried to do some videos with it…..and I must admit that it was a total waste of time.
First of all videos (for me) was a total disaster, as i couldn't use it in bright sunlight, and secondly the camera (in video mode) kept overheating….and i had to keep putting it in the fridge.

So I bought a Sony A65…..all problems solved.

Video Question: Was there any heating problems (in video mode) with the NX1.
Can autofocus be used in any setting.
Thanks

In fact, they're still having their day because the battery isn't dead yet, contrary to mirrorless.

In reply to:

Ozyxy: What's up with horizontal websites? I liked #1 (and the other photos of course) and I clicked to see the photographer's website to see what else is there but the site requires horizontal scrolling to see the photos, I couldn't use it so I just left without seeing anything... I think photographers who create horizontal websites miss a lot of visitors. Nobody can use a horizontal website. Why don't they make their websites vertical as every website should be?

You're lucky.

I think I saw a bra strap and it's extremely offensive to me.

You have issues.

Joe Ogiba: Swap the gold for 1/8000 sec shutter speed like the lower cost FF cameras.

I'm sympathetic, as a Dƒ owner, about the shutter and focus systems, but surely the same design teams aren't responsible for a bit of gold plating and core design.

Potemkin_Photo: "Hasselbladding it" will soon become industry slang.

This is not comparable at all. This is tasteful, and is nearly the same price as the silver/black.

FF mirrorless system next year?

I hope not.

In reply to:

ealvarez: What is holding back Nikon from pioneering a class leading mirror-less camera? Is it not a possibility f-mount mirror-less? I would understand the hesitation business wise if they had to sacrifice on lens sales.. This is an honest question can f-mount lenses work with mirror-less system? I understand some people like big cameras but there are also who like Sony a6000 - Fuji XT1 - Pana Gx7 size camera with Nikon IQ, AWB, Auto ISO, AF, dynamic range, NO COLOR BANDING, light metering capability..

Poor focus and terrible battery life.

Yes, I did give it a try. Six months, shooting every day. No, I did not like it.

A mirror is a FEATURE - one that I want.

Good move. This was a travesty.

0MitchAG: I can't believe out of all submissions, let alone finalists, that image 1, won. Why does photojournalism always have to consist of tragedy? It probably would have been easier to photograph any of the disabled or dying children in the cancer ward - or would the 'emotional impact' not be the same because those children are 'privileged'?

Some stories need to be told.

While you're at it, beat the bushes for some D400 news?

InTheMist: Someone will come along and criticize.

When they do, look at their gallery first.

I think the editors are qualified to choose.
