endofoto: Nikon D7200 is much better than both Nikon D5 and Canon 1DX MII, no need to upgrade to full frame.

Yea, it's a shame that many pros don't realize that and buy such a substandard camera as the 1dx and 1dxii. They should listen to what you are telling them and what is in front of their eyes.
I really like mine though.

turvyT: Both cameras are great, but one of them is much better, as many people Know.

Which one is MUCH better?

I guess we believe what we want to hear. One venue doesn't determine which camera is the best. Let's test these bad boys out in other venues.
An inexperienced photographer can make either look bad.

Sure, I would buy the 600EX II-RT if I didn't have 3 of the original version which do a great job. Even though it has an improved recycle time the upgrade would not be worth it for me.

Oh no! I"ll have to check that one out now or just buy the 1dxii since my 1dx is now obsolete. 😃

Oh, I didn't know that. I spent all that money on my 1Dx for nothing.

Canon is catching up??? They are there and beyond. They have their share of owners. Must be something they are doing right.

Nice to have this announcement and there are some nice additions and modifications but not enough to replace my current 1Dx. The original 1Dx is still one heck of a camera. I will still use my 5Dmiii as my 2nd body for now.

justmeMN: Way better than using a GoPro. :-)

Yea, maybe they have a head strap for this Nikon like GoPro does. :)

AV Janus: I am still reading around trying to understand what this product actually does and why would we need one...

LOL! Just saw that its $550...
...cause the pocket flash light just won't do, it won't give you that sublime (oh I spent 500 so it's better an my photos are now worth more) feeling, right?

Yea, I'm sure most of us give our clients an inventory with the cost of what we are using for their event. The prices have to be rationalized somehow. :)

You don't need one but check out some of the videos from the inventor to see what it does. It is expensive though.

Just a Photographer: A neat selfmade Ice Light set you back only 30 dollars....

People better read the following PetaPixel article to save themselves about 500 dollars if they are prepared to do a little DIY.

Interesting. Hope I can find a way to make a Profoto B1 for under $500. It would have saved me several thousands!

Maybe they are going to announce some stellar lenses then for sure they won't be able to sell the older ones even at the reduced prices.

On article Quick Review: Zenfolio's Photographer Central (16 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tan68: A couple weeks ago, I though the Premium (or whatever the name of the most costly) account included space on this advertising site...

I may misremember and perhaps the cost was much reduced for the premium account... In any case, I am sure it was not an additional $300+ on top..

A couple weeks ago, looked like a nice value added service for Premium. At $300, for a limited time, the service requires more careful thought.

If I am correct that the ad space was previously included with Premium, I guess they have reached some tipping point in participation to justify selling it as a stand-alone.

My Q has always been 'how do customers know to search Photographer Central?'...

Photographer Central is included with the premium business account. Mine just renewed at $250. I had signed up with Zenfolio before the price increase. For now they honored the $250 vs $300 yearly fee. I hope Photographer Central does stay included with the premium business account.

I use Zenfolio and have the premium business account. Photographer Central is currently included in the premium business account yearly fee. I would say at this point I would not have paid $400 for the Photographer Central directory.
