forpetessake: Outrageous intrusion of government. Ansel Adams must be turning in his grave. First they annexed the land for the 'public' use, and then that government bureaucracy made themselves judges and de facto owners prohibiting that same public from the free use of the land.

Exactly. If it weren't for Aneel Adams, many of these places wouldn't BE national parks.

And he made a buck or two along the way.

Great series Barney. It combines photography wiht my second love, aviation.

Daniel Lauring: They aren't bad photos but I felt they don't really do a good job of telling a story, or more specifically David's story of Alzheimer's. What does his mother's pill bottle have to do with his condition? What does a lightbulb sitting on a radiator have to do with his condition? Is it a metaphor? Is it staged? Did he leave it there and forget to change a bulb?

I felt the same way looking at his photo project of Edith. If I hadn't read the description I'd have no idea what it was about.

I'm quite concerned with the negativity on this site.

2 years gone, Sony only who able to produce FF mirrorless cameras.

Nikon, Canon, wake up! or you will die as dinosaurs.

ManuelVilardeMacedo: Hmm, what have we got here? A manufacturer that makes the best lenses south of Leica and Zeiss, with a wonderful tradition of quality throughout its history. They make no less than six full-frame models, all of them highly respected by their image quality; they are at the forefront of their industry in terms of effective, useful innovation and, despite relying almost exclusively on their cameras and lenses, they are still the second largest photography manufacturer. Professionals all over the world use Nikon for the most demanding jobs. I'd say they deserve some respect for all this, but how do people react to a simple interview?
- We want 4K;
- We want cropped sensors;
- We want crappy mirrorless;
- We don't care for wonderfully bright viewfinders, we just want dumb electronic ones;
- We want E-mount;
- And X- mount;
- We want useless features that add nothing to image quality.
The photography community has gone insane.

You know how long my non-mirrorless ancient dinosaur cameras' battery lasts when I leave them switched on? A month or more - not sure.

You know how long it takes for me to have the camera wake up and snap a shot? 0.2s

Fact.

A mirror is a FEATURE. A complicated and expensive feature, but one I like.

My favourite street photographer takes NINE batteries for his mirrorless camera for a day of shooting. Me? Two, but the second one rarely gets used.

Dinosaurs are slow, like Mirrorless.

I haven't seen when the photo must have been made.

Zeisschen: So finally a DSLR that is almost on mirrorless standards in terms of AF accuracy and FPS. If it wouldn't be 2 times the size and weight to achieve that, it would actually be an exiting camera...
But sorry, it's 2014 Canon!! If you didn't have the large user base and lens selection, nobody would buy it for that prize!

@ Rishi

I would like to see:
1) A football player running a Post to Corner route with dummies set up for the subject to run behind occasionally.
http://www.shakinthesouthland.com/2010/3/22/1378440/wr-basics-routes-and-the-passing
2) A Bird In Flight on a pulley system.

Totally repeatable, but not that easy to get set up the first time.

larrytusaz: Again with the "slideshow" design with numerous "next, next, next, next, n..." clicks required, except on the mobile version of the page. One page would be better--and no, I don't care that advertisers want that design. Make it one page ANYWAY--and yes, I ask for it WITHOUT offering to pay for it. Do it ANYWAY.

@ Barney

I assume you have a crushing backlog of things to do after all that.

I'm looking forward to it.

(Unrelated: nice X-T1 samples)

While the OP is lacking a certain tact, you can list me as people who "just don't like this format".

Nice camera, though. I hope Nikon does one too.

On Travel tripods: 5 carbon fiber kits reviewed article (85 comments in total)

Thanks for this. I bought the Gitzo with the older quick release, for which I already have a couple of the mounting plates.

I guess if it keeps camera makers busy innovating on the enthusiast level and up, that's a good thing for everybody.

I'm a bit confused by the premise of the article, though.

I think you're trying to say that the point-and-shoot is dead as a class of camera (because everyone has phones now) and that this new focus towards the higher end of the marketplace is good for us who are most interested in this level of camera?

Joseph Black: She has a loose thread near her right shoulder blade. Considering the lens I would have stopped it down a bit and used a slightly higher ISO. It looks like there are moments when she's spinning so fast the shutter speed isn't adequate to freeze the motion. Still, we appreciate some great first shots. The plant and glass are tack sharp.

Focus seems not that terribly good on the girl.

At least, something isn't sharp even at 1/2500 and f/4.

Tandua: Shutter Speeds 30 - 1/4000 sec ? only 1/4000 ...my "old" d700 1/8000.

Why this low speed?

In it's defense, it also has base ISO 100 instead of 200, so the exposure possibilities are the same.

Still, it leave an impression of lesser quality.

How does the shutter sound?

I'm on the fence about this.

Joseph Black: It's nice to know some companies choose deliberate development rather than the rapid release of poorly conceived gimmicks. Not to say Apple doesn't have a gimmick here and there, but when they do something they do it right.

That could be another one that they actually make work - widely used, that is.

The number of credit cards on file certainly favours them.

Touch. The internet. Then apps, voice activation.

I had a lot of smart phones before an iPhone, and I was a huge apple hater until I actually had one in my hand. "Holy s*%& it actually works well"
