On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (298 comments in total)
In reply to:

CameraLabTester: The only thing separating the GX1 series from other mirror less quagmire is the OPTICAL VF, and they removed it.

Welcome to the QUAGMIRE, Mr. GX1 Mark II, you are now a mediocre commoner, like the rest of us mirror less motley crew...

.

More like""The Worst UPGRADE of all time".

Canon is the CHAMPION of doing Downgrades to it's Upgrades, fooling the consumers, and getting away with it.

They are unbeatable at this event.

Great!

Another item for the sales counter person in a camera store that will be required by management to force down your wide aperture throat.

Yep... then reduce everything back on the computer to "manageable" sizes...

Nice.

On In photos: Taking the lid off America's trash cans news story (39 comments in total)

Like most "Reality Shows" where the participants know they are being watched and monitored... this project is EPIC FAIL in FAKE.

They KNOW they are being monitored, so all the data is FAKE.

Swoop down on a typical "unwarned" family, and you will get a more accurate picture, which is the more unflattering and even disturbing data.

On Sony Alpha 7S in low-light: See video at ISO 409,600 news story (234 comments in total)

An opening of f2.8 will not render both the fire and the distant pinpoint light as sharp.

A smaller aperture was used.

On Nikon to offer D600 replacements if 'spots' continue news story (173 comments in total)

Way back in 2005 / 2006 Nikon did the right thing by replacing D70 defective batteries for free, including free shipping and handling.

That was a gesture every Nikon user loved and Nikon hater admired, respected, and became jealous off...

Fast forward 2014...

WAHAPEND?

TOO LATE.

Brand respect can never be bought by even a brand new camera on a stick.

In reply to:

CameraLabTester: No.14 tops them all.

No.5 is magical.

No.1 is total crap.

.

Image No.1 is clearly the winner of the "INVISIBLE HAND AWARD" for Selfie Category...

Re-posting what I wrote earlier:

"If you look closely on the left corner reflection, you will see the right hand of the person, even though it is almost stretched towards his back...

But where is his left hand that is holding the camera right in front of him?

Where is that reflection?

If the visor reflection captured the right hand almost stretched to his back side, why hasn't it captured the left hand which is RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE VISOR?

This image is clearly the winner of the: "INVISIBLE HAND AWARD" for Selfie Photography..."

inasir1971: This is too funny - the entry from Neville Jones, 1st Place, Australia National Award is a shot of the same guy taken from almost the exact same spot (near a small village near Yanshuo, China) as me just over a year ago! (check my galley)

Small world!

Didn't think you could win an award with something staged for tourists....

Pretty sure there were thousands upon thousands of snaps made on that location, with the props, the birds and the person.

But only one of them got the Sony Prize of $7.3 Million...the only one out of the 298,573 shots taken since the birds roosted on the man...

The winning image is a true winner.

The also rans better think twice before posting their own version... as it will be cut down by comments like the one above^

Remember:

Winners in a photo contest reflect the brains of the Judges, not the competitors.

You are thus looking inside the head of Sony and it's allies.

They can certainly make good cameras.

But it does not elect them to have good judgement or taste.
