"The winning photo just makes it very clear why banning drones from national parks is a very good idea."
Calm down Chicken Little...
The only thing clear is that someone took a picture of a bird.
Sergey Kostrov: I'd like to express my concerns regarding DpReview progress on some outstanding and Not completed Previews of many cameras.
Even if these pictures are very interesting they have Zero-value ( at least for me ). I clearly see that after DpReview launched GearShop number of reviews went down and DpReview is No longer a site that does fast reviews for new cameras.
For me, you're like some kind of "Proxy" of news related to digital photography.
A little bit more and Cameralabs.com with Imaging-resource.com will be my primary websites.
You should demand a refund!!
This just shows what most DSLR owners already know.
Sensor based AF is not very good regardless of what you call it.
The focus errors are less noticable on M4/3 because of the larger DOF, but they are there.
Your bag should have what YOU will need in it. If you don't know what that is, why do you even have a bag?
If I were forced to carry a bag (I don't carry one now), I would have no use for the tiny tripod, the rocket blower, the poncho, the remote release, the little cloth, the polarizer, or the little flash.
Why does the photo only have 2 views? How can you vote without viewing?
cyber101: These votes are very unusual because user id 8D94A2F5 sore a 5 for this photo and 64 other photos were .5 should i disqualify?
Yes you should.
If you do not feel the photographer deserves the credit for "pressing the shutter button", then buy a camera and do it yourself. If it is so easy to do, this should be no problem.
If you buy a DSLR and lens, you will never have to hire a photographer again, right?
Seems easy enough.
When that doesn't work (and it won't), then the person who has dedicated thousands of hours to learning the craft (who you want to hire for peanuts) won't look so greedy.
What PP was used on this? Great Shot!
Sony teams up with reputable camera manufacturers.
Sonys excellent sensors combined with top camera makers names, sell the cameras for the other brands, better cameras are produced, and Sony makes money more than selling their own cameras.
Wait...why do they still make cameras?
69chevy: First, I look at cameras I have no intention of buying. Next, I predict the future of a multi billion dollar corporations based on an entry level camera. Then I complain that the camera I don't intend to buy is not as (whatever) as the other brand.
In the mean time I don't even care about photography, I just jones for new gear like a crackhead looking for a fix. All the while, my current camera has never once come up short.
I like to take what camera manufacturers do personally, because my camera brand defines me.
"Perfect apologist for Canon. You must also like the iPhone 4.2, err 5."
I do love my iPhone. When I get my 6d, I will be able to use my iPhone to control it.
As far as an apologist??? Why apologize for a camera maker who is.....making cameras?

It is very apparant that the folks on this board are not users. I follow many photographers on Instagram.
Many use "real" cameras. There are users posting to instagram from 1DX, D4, 5D3, D800....
The picture does not have to be taken with a cell phone.
That being said, there are some pretty good pictures coming from cell phones as well.
"Another benefit of the Phottix Odin's system is that it operates via a 2.4GHz radio frequency with a range of over 100 meters (though I was able to get it to work from up to 15 meters further away). "
Do you mean 165 meters?
These people are ruining the world.
First, they are changing out of their sweatpants, and leaving their houses.
Next, they are taking photographs with no regards for ISO, noise, or DR.
Then they have the nerve to go meet other people... in person!!
They should stay put, and stop enjoying themselves.
Their Insta-crap is ruining my fun of sitting home on a photography forum talking trash about cameras I don't know how to use.
I saw this post today. This afternoon the app was already on my phone. I guess Facebook can install an app without me knowing? Creepy...
VivaLasVegas: Hollywood uses 5D3 for video(avengers). D800 is for the in coming freshman in majoring in videography. For stills photography they are tie.
They actually used (5) 5dmkII cameras and (2) 7d cameras. The 5dmkIII wasn't available or tested enough.
If you believe Canon missed the boat on the price, have a look at Ebay.
The D800 is selling for $3500.
The 5dIII is selling for $3500.
A product is worth what it will sell for. Nikon should have charged $3500...
They are selling the D800 at a bargain to sway customers back who left for the 5dII. The only problem for Nikon is the reputation of the 5dII in the video world.
It also doesn't help them that "The Avengers" filmmakers used Canon DSLRs in production, and the movie has grossed $1B.
Zigadiboom: It may be true that the target market will predominantly resolve to using RAW. However at this price point having a camera producing sub-par jpegs is frankly inexcusable.
Its like buying a new Ferrari that has a below average airconditioner. You don't buy a Ferrari for its airconditioning but rather for its performance. However an airconditioner is still an important component of the overall package and a technology that should have been well and truly mastered years ago.
You may wish to have a peek as well. His comparison is neither. You could possibly call it a simile, but hey, who am I to correct your literacy?
If you think the 5dIII is comparable to a Ferrari, then you have a very strange perspective.
beto fotos: so you can bring a d3s to vacuum at -200ºC and take pics? wow i will never again worry about my nikon in cold weather.
The vacuum has no ill effect on any mechanical device which is not pressure tight.
Temperature in space does not exist. There are no adjacent molecules for the camera to dissipate its heat. It stays the temperature that it was when inside the shuttle unless heat radiates into it. This is why they covered it with a thermal wrap.
