Just the way to present a $7000 camera. A filthy dirty lens and hood paired with an unattractive mahogany wood. H, have you heard of rosewood. Sorry, this alone is a deal breaker for me! But they will sell to the elitist s to show the world that the riots were a flash in the pan.
domina: That's a good thing for photography and videography, it means now everyone will be able to sell to them on the strength of their current images rather than be employed by them permanently because of personal connections or past reputation. However, it's sad for the photographers as employees. Perhaps the newspaper should offer them free support to set up their freelance businesses.
Why are you such an arrogant prick. You didn't have to slur Domina and Austin. Shoot, your names a mouthful, hence you will be called "Alphabet". I don't see any photos in your gallery. If the photos represented in you equipment list, a E-PL1 and an Oly 40-150 (hah) I like Austin's better.
DenWil: So one person riding the rails illegally photographed others riding the rails illegally. Safer than being a Christian missionary in Iran or N Korea where you go to prison when you're caught.
Their Americas lost children. For one reason or another this is their station in life at the moment or maybe forever. At least their not those two + family terrorists and freeloaders that came into this country with their hands out for money. The author goes on to being a diesel mechanic and is happy.
cgarrard: Zeiss will sell a ton, nothing touit.
lmtfa: No offense but Mr. Diallo seems to be the putting out most of the reviews. The camera reviews are few and far between. I am not speaking about agreeing or disagreeing. Information needs to be available quickly for the consumer to make informed decisions. Is dpreview waiting for purchasers to post their opinions of the cameras enabling them to hone in on specifics?
Back in the day Barney, I can remember you put out that many in a week. These younger members don't know that.
@six34sigma. Im not questioning the quality. Where did I say that? Not only refreshes but camera phones, printers, software thats time consuming and maybe more staff would help and a whip;)

Vandyu: I'm just wondering about quality control. The lower end and midrange DSLR cameras will be made in Laos with final assembly in Thailand. I see potential for many QC issues in new trainees, shipping of cameras from one plant to another, etc. But, Nikon is going into survival mode by keeping costs down. I know no one likes to think of iPhones replacing DSLRs, and we all know that they don't really, but people might be thinking twice about buying a D3000 generation camera when their phone takes "perfectly good shots." I'd prefer to have my camera made in Japan, but my D80 is from Thailand! I wish the new plant well. Just don't want to hear about any more oil spatters and sensor dust in new cameras.
Thing is, all those cameras with issues are made in Japan. iPhones will not replace dslr's but will one day kill the P&S's.
They had to because of the swarm of enviro nuts pushing their bs globule warming on us.
Back to Laos. You can can train anyone to sit in a production line to assemble parts. Difference between doing it in the West vs East is the stinking UNIONS.
mpjohans: After forcing me to select something for question 60 and 195, the fine survey finally rewarded me with:
Your email server modified this web form in such a way that it is now unusable. Your responses cannot been processed.
ROFL. Too funny.
Shamael: this page layout is weird. Press grey review on top, you come to main page, press red review, and you are on a review listing, press Sony and you get Sony cameras. So, on the end you have to press "Click here to read ...."
That is now a few years that I am bored by this "turn around 7 corners" to reach what I want. Why could there not be this "Click here....." on the main page. When you click there, you end on the comments page, the one we are on here. Then you have to press another button to continue. What is that good for.Not all people on this globe have 1 gb second flat rate Internet. I live in the jungle and here I need 5 minutes to open DPR.
Agree. I really enjoy looking at someone's hairy knuckles.
Funduro: Part of the News Corpse. Same owners of Faux Noise Channel. Same owners of the News of the World.
Speaking of faux, why do you use for your avatar the Afghan girl. Have you no ethics.
lmtfa: The Post is not a tabloid it is a daily newspaper that's been around since the 1950's. And you think the NY Times doesn't print that sort of photo, anyone remember the execution of the Viet Cong prisoner being shot in the head on a street in Saigon by a Vietnamese police officer in the aftermath of Tet 1968?
Those of you who pump their chests and boost " I would have saved him ", are just braggarts who have more than likely never been in a life and death situation. Finally, Poynter and many others, you can't have it both ways.
He was VC. Have you any idea how many civilians were murdered by the VC in Saigon? His only problem (the police chief) was he got caught by the press. I don't have to watch bull carp documentaries financed by public television with an agenda. Why? I was in Vietnam when Tet happened in 1968. The story is not about Vietnam, the story is about a double standard. The 1st Amendment is sacred. I fought for that. When you pick up a camera a take a picture, as long as your not breaking any laws, your protected. Even if that guy was a scum sucker for taking it. As it turns out that photo will be used to convict the dirt bag who murdered the guy. Ironic isn't it?

It is shameful that a member of this forum who posts here and on Nikon Rumors uses this stunning photo as his avatar. It is time he was exposed and stops using this or even a facsimile for his personal use.
@VivaLasVegas. There's a forum for this, "Off Topic". You posted there already, so what's your point posting in every forum? Your acting like a child. The election was not a football game. It's a display of America at its finest, the people who didn't vote for Obama are not on the street fomenting anarchy. You on the other hand and others with similar remarks makes one wonder what you would do if the outcome was not what you wanted.
I hope you wish the best for this country, regardless who's at the helm.
littlebitstrouds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2aFtnLe7msShot on an RX100 and edited in 5 min. Now that I can play with the RAW files, I've edited some amazing shots on it too. I absolutely love this camera, and I work with 20k camera rigs on a daily basis, but this thing really does fit in my pocket, and I take it everywhere with me. The best camera is the one you have with you, and this is always on me.
I hate to have to reply when someone stupid pulls the homophobic or race card, in your case I do. I'll stay at your speed, low and slow. First, why did you need to state you work with 20k equipment? Do you really think that makes what you say more credible. Facts or photo,s do. Concerning the the pocket and glad, well, I guess you don't see the humor in it. You see it as a slur to get others to dis me. Have you caught up yet. Now put the RX100 in your pocket and go out and shoot, then up load to your gallery for us to see real world snaps.
Thank you and goodby.
Lets see. You joined August 2012, I joined 2006. I guess working with 20k equipment makes you a authority.
Sure. Just like the Printing Press was the most important invention in the history. Not.
BTW, when someone comes up to you and asks if that's a camera in your pocket or are you just glad to see him, what do you say?
backayonder: So will the World be better off once the Photograph verification service have completed their work?
I shouldn't be surprised an Arnhem, Osaka, Netherlands LEFTY spotlights Fox. Although if you mention Fox you must watch it. I guess being a Faux Japanese is same, same.
I have the V1 with 10mm, 10-30mm, 30-110mm, 10-100mm, lens adapter, flash, tripod spacer, grip, hand strap and body case. The body and internals will always change. The lenses, lens adapter, flash, spacer (for the 10-100mm) remain relevant.Were there improvements? Yes.
I'm familiar with the back layout of the V1 and can navigate it in my sleep, this happens when you use the camera a lot. Function buttons on the left are nice on a dslr, V models, not. Barney likens the looks to the Pen/Nex-7. How about the OM-D, the high top hat look. Body design change, yes, not enough to trigger a sell off of V1. Placement of mode dial and exp. mode dial, yep. That's it fellow V1 owners. Not earth shattering and the selling price is about the same as the V1 when it came out. I might sell my V1 but it won't be until a V3. The lenses matter. In a year if I liked the V3 and could only sell the V1 for two hundred bucks, so be it. As long as I got use out of the camera, that's what matters.
