david kohn: a camera for the Romney family....
Why must you inject politics into this discussion?
What's the $ amount of your gear? If it's more than the cost of a P&S you must bring it to your local welfare office to be given to those who are in need. It would be your way to help distribute the wealth.
The N1V1 breaks my heart. I bought into this system with blinders on thinking that it's Nikon and would perform like my other Nikons, great! It hasn't and never will. It took Nikon four years to develope the system, was that because they were waiting for the "B" team engineers to graduate college? Looks to me like it was class project. I make no apologizes for my feelings, not when I see Sony (Nex 6), Olympus and Panasonic manufacturing more advanced cameras. By Nikon putting out a J2 for me that spelled out the death nell for the N1 system. It's going up for sale soon, real soon.
Great idea. But one critique would be the mans hat. Back in the day the sides of the hat were not bent up like wings. He would have looked much more threatening if you left the hat as is. You deserve the prize.
Ps I'm old enough to know
ericsan: What a boring new camera...such a long wait for a very basic product !!Will not wait for the upcoming & upgraded models...bye bye Canon, hello Panasonic/Olympus you will get my money for my needed backup mirrorless camera, your models are much more exciting,innovative...Cheers !!
@GKN +1. To those who have such passion on cell phone cameras, nuts!
eyeport: How exciting! Would be wonderful if this was for the whole world. ^^
You mean, all I have to do is mount my semi pro camera on a semi pro tripod and I could win. With only two countries participating it's doable. I could play mega millions as a back up that's only one country.
Paul Farace: "faded futurism of space travel" -- I am painfully aware they may be right... thanks largely to our hip prizzy and entitlement-stoned government.
So true. To some extent I place blame with NASA. They are not the people of the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo gun ho generation. Bureaucrats and "A" kissers who presided over the demise of our space program. You only miss it when it's gone. The abandonment of the space capsule say's it all.
Not too shabby but the camera and two lenses sets you back 3k +. Then again your buying a camera system. I'd like to hold one.
It takes two biggies of Dpreview to come up with a score of 77%. OMG, the Gin's flowing at the Dpreview testing lab.
Nice job Barney on making the Nikon booth palatable than it must have been. I nearly fell off the chair laughing reading "And this is the long-awaited 50mm f/1.8 AF-S for both APS-C and full-frame DSLRs." What ground breaking news.
The beauty of slides even with the passage of time.
I get a kick out of the reinactors. It's fun to pretend. His tooth is a classic.
He looks like a sweet kid. Really like the capture.
A pretty face will always win a military photo challenge over bombs, bullets, battle or bravado. Still it is a nice capture and I hope her squad leader didn't catch her breach of military bearings:-)
He could be scribbling for all we know. Ah, it's left up to us to fill in the meaning, that works.
This photo should have been in the top three. The intense stare of the guard convey's a sence of warning. Nice shot.
