On Nikon D4s First Impressions Review preview (819 comments in total)

At least we're one step closer to the D5.

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

The styling of the silver reminds me of the FM film camera. As a working collectible, which ultimately it will be, it makes more sense than an empty Leica shell or a glass paperweight Hasselblad.

An interesting concept here; using bundled fiber optics as a "lens".

DotCom Editor: I think this is a brilliant idea and I recommend it to all Nikon owners.

I'll bet you own a Canon.

What's missing is ballast to keep the tank reasonably submerged and stable, otherwise it will take some effort to hold it down. The bottom of fish tanks is glass, the bottom should be protected with plywood on both sides. Use towels inside the tank to absorb stray water before it can reach the camera.

This poor fellow will now be besieged with donations of Kodak Autographics, Brownies, 8mm movie cameras, and Polaroids.

Square format, but its a cinch you wouldn't get these photos from a Hasselblad.

He is aiming at a cockroach on the paper on the wall. A woman and a child are cowering against any potential ricochet. Is this a powerful social statement or just another instance of the truism, "All you need for a movie is a girl and a gun"

alfredo_tomato: The best way to hold onto power is to pit one group against another. The biggest fear of the ruling class is if the poor of all races and religion see the predatory capitalist and bought off politician as the enemy, not their neighbor.

The haters like the Klan, Tea Party, and the Nation of Islam play right into the hands of those who profit from our division. The monied class wants us fighting over the scraps that trickle down on us. Wake up, grow up.

All photographers are welcome to come to Tea Party meetings. You can picture us saying the Pledge of Allegiance. If you are quick, you can get a shot of one of our extreme members picking up litter, we are known for that.

My Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm held together. Sold it long ago, though.

Random Asian Guy: Has something different happened to dpreview recently? I already follow sonyalpharumors and LensRentals and 2 out of the 3 latest posts I've already read about.

Is dpreview really running out of their own articles?

You are reading the real article. They say something inflammatory and all the subscribers react.

A Watson 200 bulk film loader, I presume. Not my favorite way to load because it dragged the film through the cassette felt an extra time encouraging scratches.

What's next? How about shooting a major motion picture on an iphone! (I'm glad the Beatles never recorded on cassette tapes.)

1/100 of a second, handheld? And we are supposed to judge the sharpness?

I love snooping around in high resolution images. If you magnify the above picture you will see a woman in the window. But if you download the Original you can tell it is a manikin.
