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.
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?

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.
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.
