nikonson: I think both of Nike photo and Rentmeester photo are fake. I remember that Michael Jordan always stuck his tongue out when he made jump shots.

Wait...

Isn't THAT his tongue sticking out and licking the ball like a frog?

No?

My bad! I thought it was his licker all along!

That then, is NOT Michael...

Two parties were involved.

Ideas were exchanged.

Creativity flowed.

The big guy took it further based on the original idea.

Its a line ball.

Player 1 calls a challenge.

Hawk Eye™ lawyers please come forward.

Nikon is a good company with good products.

Hopefully, there won't be a time when they have to explain why they disappeared from the planet, entirely.

When consumers (not professionals) consider SIZE as a major factor: MIRRORLESS will kick in.

Oops! It already has!

PROS: big and bulky

CONSUMERS: small, comfortable, and wise. (smart too)

On Canon to move camera production back to Japan article (108 comments in total)

A camera these days are made up of components that have been manufactured, molded, welded, partially assembled, glued together, etc. etc., so that a typical camera (it they are to tell the truth) would have details similar to your cereal box:

This camera and its components manufactured in:
Japan 5%
China 44%
Thailand 25%
Indonesia 15%
India 4%
Sri Lanka 3%
Philippines 2%
Vietnam 1%
Singapore 1%

NOTE: THE LABEL ON THE BOTTOM OF THE CAMERA SAYING "MADE IN JAPAN" IS 100% MADE IN JAPAN and constitutes 0.001% of the camera component and not included in the tally above.

Canon just wants to shift those percentages. That's all.

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1327 comments in total)

The moment a photography enthusiast removes the concept of "upgrade" in his/her mind... the more enjoyable that photography enthusiast and hobbyist's picture taking would be.

Upgrade spreads the curse of inadequacy, a useful tool of marketing.

IT Department: "We have here a simple patch that would make the 5300, heck even the D5000, have touch screen! It's just a simple code, really, like...."

On Canon announces five PowerShot compacts article (150 comments in total)

Please just keep this secret to ourselves:

These are the bulk camera production inventory stored on Warehouse 98 back in 2009.

This year, 2015, they finally found where Warehouse 99 is.

Warehouse 99 is where the batteries for these leading edge cameras (back in 2009) were stored.

End of happy story.

On Leica issues T (Typ 701) firmware update article (69 comments in total)
In reply to:

CameraLabTester: "The new firmware update will make the text of the camera make on the EXIF data 10 points bigger than the rest of the script."

"There is also an option where the user can make the CAMERA MAKE text DOUBLE THE SIZE than the rest of the EXIF text."

Now isn't that nice?

Merry Christmas!

.

"Illuminated Red Dot!" like the Apple logo on laptops...

Hmmmm...

Now you are giving Leica some ideas...

That's a very valid reason for a hefty retail price hike!

The RED DOT goodies will be on the next firmware upgrade.

It will be able to glow and blink, but harsh on the batteries...

On Entry-Level Mirrorless Camera Roundup (2014) article (133 comments in total)

What is entry level?

A person who is buying the top most expensive "ENTRY LEVEL" camera, and will be using "mirrorless" for the first time is "ENTERING" the mirrorless realm for the first time, on that expensive level. It is that person's entry level.

There wasn't much mirrorless choice a few years ago.

We are all entering this era at the same time.

We are all entry level.

Enjoy the company.

What Sony should really IMPROVE is the public awareness of their MOUNT SYSTEM.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1235 comments in total)

I have all sympathy for DPR reviewers.

They have to dig deep and wrack their brains to find compelling reasons to prop up the model they are reviewing up on a pedestal.

This 7D Mark2 is so last year.

No, sorry... last two years.

Oops! Three years!

In reply to:

CameraLabTester: How exciting it is to be in the middle of the volatile shifting sands of Frame Frame pageantry!

The contenders are punch fighting it out for podium placings, ruining their bikinis... even if there are only three places that are allocated for the THREE of them! (Each would want a brand sweep, obviously... )

Frame Frame pageantry haha! (supposed to be Full Frame pageantry).
