"The “Fuji shot” had already made a splash, having been licensed by Bing Japan for their background image of the day, in July of 2013."
What he expected!?? It takes a moment to save the background image of Bing.
And it's pretty good res: 1366x768 more than enough for the web.

"People will do a lot with a small image
Even if you post at low resolution, people will find the full-res image anyway"

Yes other people are also creative.

What about chroma key compositing with blue/green background? You can use any picture as a background.

Artpt: To All,

So is there a website that does not allow image saving or copying? Could a flash based site be more secure?

With sincere interest and kind regards,

Art

You can do always a "Save all" it saves everything that is needed for that given page.

They should use titanium. Looks and feels much better.

"Titanium is hard to work"
I know and it would be a good point for this camera.
They could make a 10h video how it was made.

Actually gold and uranium are heavy like hell. But titanium is absolutely not unrealistic. Bicycle frames are also made of it.

It is not supposed to be switched on.

CameraLabTester: Nikon makes great and fantastic DSLRs and scientific optical equipment.

Majority of their photographic gear are groundbreaking and leading edge.

This camera series called "1" is a shamefull product launched by a most respected brand.

For this segment of the market, Nikon has truly lost the plot.

Mirror is dead.

hrt: I take this as a good reminder that we should use our wits rather than money, but what was it about the flame ?
The flame has been managed at least during the shooting indeed, but why would one need a flame to shoot that nice lady and have her to risk that flame ?

Camera (ouch Leica) was in danger.

dmanthree: In order for the aerosol can to explode, you'd need oxygen inside the can. It is highly unlikely that the can would explode since there is no oxygen inside it, and the pressure of the gas coming out also deters the flame from retreating back into the can. Same reason the flame on a gas stove doesn't travel back down the gas pipe; it needs oxygen to burn. However, the open flame is another matter...

Check the wind direction!

I haven't noticed it (wasn't important).

The old style passive controllers are not used anymore anywhere.

Mike FL: Firing from spray can, holding that circle light (part of the world use 220V btw) ...

If TV shows these clips , the TV station will put the warning "Do not try it @home" for not getting into possible legal consequences down the road...

"Do not try it @home"
Go to your neighbors to try it.
