iAPX: As I am asking myself, as a professional photographer to show-off some of my photos (or series), would you consider using flickr or 500px? or another one?

Thanks for the answers :)

I'd choose an own domain, own webspace and Wordpress running on it.
Webspace and domain are darn cheap these days and WP is incredibly easy to set up and maintain.

Wubslin: So Nikon is failing then. No surprise really.

So the famed Canon smartphone is quite popular, hu?

Am I missing something or are there hardly any stills taken with these drones available here?

marc petzold: I'd say for pro-applications, quadrocopter is there since 2006, the firm.
from their website: Our heavy lift edition Gryphon GD- 8 and CineStar 8 HL supports a payload of 12 lbs for 12 minutes.

Quadrocopter also builds and designs fully customized multirotor platforms for Military, EMS, Fire, Police, Search and Rescue and scientific applications.

I just can't stand the word "drone" in that term, drone sounds much military, and even some copters flew by GPS data, they're not 100% autonom.

It is a drone.
A drone by definition is an unmanned, remotely controlled aerial vehicle. Most of them fortunately come without hellfire missiles attached to them.

Those in portrait orientation look a lot like pictures taken with a smartphone due to their dimensions. Vintage filters added.

SRT3lkt: This camera reminds me of blowfish.

I bet a hundred bucks it makes better pictures than a blowfish though.

Akpinxit: IQ just a notch lower than 70D , never the less , I've become used to see Nikon sensors in lead

Shouldn't that say "Sony" instead of "Nikon" since all flagship sensors are bought from them? ^^

SulfurousBeast: What the Pentax fanboys / followers came out in full fore to vote or is it just a sympathy vote for the underdog? I am not saying K3 is not a good camera by any measure, in fact it is at par and even above par with its comparable peers in several areas. But given that majority voters would be (assumed) CanNikon owners, surprising to see Pentax K3 leading this poll which means it has garnered 'non-pentaxian' votes too. Good for Pentax.

I shoot Sony / Minolta but I'm not a stupid fanboy so why shouldn't I appreciate that another brand has released a great camera this year?

Nikon2011: what a beautiful world we live in, with 10 billion troubles we have, we have the time to hate-denigrate-laugh to a guy who loves our same hobby (well a job for himself) and does it in its own way. This discussion is full of Einsteins but also self-admitted Noobs who say Jared is just bad or not good enough, why dont YOU ALL start doing something better than Jared instead of whining ? you wouldnt be able to make 100 subscribers on youtube, i suppose out of 1000 shots you make you can make barely 1 keeper (the hyper critics without basics pointing the hand at the guy). What is constructive critics, what is freedom of opinion and speech, in my opinion what most of you are doing is not like that, its just a sample of how bad the human kind can be (calling someone i-diot. unskilled,untalented,unartistic bla bla) critics or childs pretending to do a proper critic ?

So people aren't entitled to have an opinion and voice it here?
We're still living in free countries. Some more, some less.

jacketgiang: This guy reminds me Ken Rockwell, but it seems like Ken Rockwell knows a lot more about photography than this guy.

In my opinion, they are both overrated.
I have yet to see a single picture taken by Rockwell that really amazes me.

Shield3: Nothing wrong with Jared selling this - any true fan of capitalism can't really be against a guy trying to earn a buck.
What is sort of funny to me, however, is the fact most of us are all shooting digital now - it's not like it costs us anything to delete photos. In other words, teach yourself by doing and practicing. Shrug.

Some advice isn't a bad thing either because we've all seen people making the same mistakes over and over again.

Paul Farace: I understand crystal growth mechanics, but still... to look at these and NOT believe in the hand of a creator!

People understanding the mechanics behind this AND believing in a creator is what puzzles me. ;-)

midimid: Anyone own both this and the Rokinon/Samyang 14mm 2.8 on Nikon? I've had this Tokina for about a year and as much as I love it, it seems that the Rokinon easily matches it (or more) for half the cost. So I'm considering selling it and getting the Rokinon instead.

Comparison:
http://www.dxomark.com/Lenses/Compare/Side-by-side/Tokina-AT-X-Pro-SD-11-16-F28-IF-DX-II-Nikon-on-Nikon-D7100-versus-14mm-F2.8-IF-ED-MC-Aspherical-Nikon-on-Nikon-D7100___872_865_366_865

11mm vs 14mm wide end is quite a difference in angle.

There's a serious lack of FF really wide angle lenses for Sony, unfortunately.

jkoch2: Might the Welshman who picked up the gold-plated Lexus II while serving in the UK forces that occupied a segment of Germany in the 45-47 period? It could have fetched someone a mighty favor. Escape from Spandau?

Might the other three still be belong to the estates of Industriellen oder Politiker prominent in den 1930er Jahren?

Hu?

Common sense? No way! It's rather the financial crisis. ^^

These "in before" postings suck monkey testicles.
