In reply to:

olyflyer: The winning image will show what exactly? Nothing else than the work of the photographer, since any of these cameras can be used to take equally well made images, so conclusions about camera brand superiority based on a winning challenge is pretty much nonsense. It will not show the quality of the camera but the quality of the photographer (actually, the voters), unless the photographer used a feature which does not exist in the other two cameras, if there is a feature like that, and the image couldn't be taken without that feature.

Another thing is that giving away the name of the camera in the title or the notes, which can be seen for the voters, should not be allowed. This to give the image a fair chance to be judged by the image, not by the brand. Fanboys will go for the brand, not the image.

Good point. Agree 100%.

Thanks ConanFuji! Yes I was using burst shooting continued auto focus (A99 has advanced AF-D tracking mode). I am pleased that all the images from the burst shots came out well.

On Hands-on with the Samsung Galaxy NX post (24 comments in total)

Call me traditionalist, I just can't see the usefulness of touch screen based camera. I mean how can you control, make adjustment through viewfinder, without physical dial and button? This works on P&S cameras but once you start to use viewfinder the whole ergonomic situation suddenly changes.

Thanks for all the voting! I went to the same spot many times since, and never found eagle flying close to me again, this capture is more memorable to me now.

On EVIL Equipment - special rules; read carefully! challenge (11 comments in total)

Is P&S camera allowed? After all, it's same as typical EVIL but with fixed lens.

Timmbits: Very nice update!
Glad to see there isn't just RX100 that has a larger than usual sensor in this category... yet, still, I wish there was some 1" competition to Sony.

Sigma is great until you run out power on your 3rd battery before mid day.

Bobby72: I am always looking for the best. I really don't care what the brand is. I am a perfectionist and always looking tot get the best quality in everything I buy. This year I went from Nikon to Sony only because I did a good evaluation. I wanted to see if there is a better option. And yess there was. I became a sharper image, more dynamic image and much more emotion in the photos as well. It was very clear Sony does a better job in this. I use my Samsung PS64D8000 withe the Audioquest Diamond hdmi. With the best screan in real colours in 2011 I can see all the parts in the pictures. Sony is a lot more colourful and more dynamic. Wenn I go back to my Nikon photos they look thin and less colourful. Wenn I go back to my Sony A99 I can feel the exitment. I smile and say yess this is what I want and need. There is a lot more what makes Sony superior to Canon and Nikon. I have more control with the EVF before I make the photo. I would never go back to standard DSLR.

marike6, beside the main sensor, there is image processor at work to determine the colour. Sony (and Minolta before) always have a rich, film-like colour. In simple words, Sony's image is made of pure colour pixels, Nikon's file is more like B&W image with colour overlay.
