  • First, the new Canon M and now this new Nikon 1 . . . both "NOT FOR SALE IN THE USA". Personally, I wouldn't buy either one but it would seem they are waiving the white flag with the USA with...

  • Hi Jeff . . . this is Dark Cobra from your old site. I was glad to see you return to Stanford and San Francisco for many of these shots and we are very used to many of these scenes from your old...

  • Commented on Miggo Strap and Grip review article

    Hmmmm? Well, it's an interesting concept but there's something awkward about it to the point I would definitely pass on this thing.

  • I have to agree. I was hoping they'd introduce this at CES and that it would have an electronic viewfinder and fix the slow focusing issues. Well, I got tired of waiting and picked up a Fuji...

  • You've got to be kidding . . . what is Canon thinking? Actually, it's like they stopped thinking some time ago.

  • No wonder the masses are turning to their smartphone cameras instead. Canon . . . you're not helping when you continue to manufacture junk like these cameras.

  • Fuji is listening to those serious about photography and most importantly they are responding. Canon and Nikon should take notes. Looking forward to this Spring and Summer with my brand new...

  • Well, we were asked to pick one ring to rule all others and I must say this was in my own personal top three. This is a very compelling image that has a lot going on. Congratulations to all the...

  • Unfortunately, I don't see too many in this sampling that are all that impressive. They appear a bit soft.

  • Commented on Sony Alpha 7 Review preview

    Ouch . . . well that review has to sting for Sony. While it's not a complete slam they are pulling no punches in revealing a number of key negatives. Yes, there are some solid positives. ...

  • Commented on CES 2014: Canon Stand Report news story

    Relevant points indeed. I think I've got an idea for Canon. As you stated "better to make a profit by selling on your name only, than not making a profit at all" . . . Well, let me throw this in...

  • Commented on CES 2014: Canon Stand Report news story

    Well, unless they're holding something back until the last day . . . this is a pathetic bust. We may not see anything worhwhile until Photokina in Sept of 2014. People are going to continue to...

  • Commented on CES 2014: Canon Stand Report news story

    Well, unless they're holding something back until the last day . . . this is a pathetic bust. We may not see anything worthwhile until Photokina in Sept of 2014. People are going to continue to...

  • Well Leandros I guess we just have to agree to disagree. This site is one of the most popular photography sites in existence and people seem to like it the way it is. Is it perfect? Nope. ...

  • @AmirhosainD90 . . . you raise an interesting question. How much of today's photography is truly "straight out of the camera" vs manipulated in some way via software? Software indeed has gotten...

  • @Leandros . . . well in all fairness to Simon . . . this site is NOT a deomcracy. I too issued my own thoughts as to how I would have organized this contest but I realize this is NOT a community...

  • Alright, I voted . . . but I kind of felt bad about it. I realize you're trying to get one ring to rule all other rings. But I just think it would have been fairer to select the best of a couple...

  • @Cane . . . who said "black camera are boring, for boring people".

    I supose Victor Hasselblaid, Harry Benson, Ansel Adams, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Andy Warhol, David Muench, Annie Liebovitz, Henri...

  • No, I'm suggesting Pentax can do better. This particular collection of sample images doesn't do this camera justice. Please stop thinking a critical observation is automatically a trolling...

  • Sorry but this collection of images doesn't make it for me. I see terrible shadow detail, colors are somewhat muted, they're too coolish in tone and sharpness could be better in most of them. ...
