OLY OLY OLY!
I'VE SAID IT ALL ALONG - OLY WILL NEVER GO OUT OF BUSINESS BECAUSE THEIR REASON TO EXIST ISN'T TO TURN A PROFIT IT'S TO CREATE THE MOST LEGENDARY CAMERAS THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN! AND CANIKON CAN NEVER COMPETE WITH THAT!
I guess the AP has never heard of something called common sense. Nobody wants to see that camera in the corner. I don't care how many other people were filming the guy and it is immaterial to the significance of the photograph. What is the AP going to do next, fire people for cropping?
Obvioiusly no coincidence that there isn't a single Canikon product that could even win its own category. Of course it doesn't help that Canikon has no idea how to do mirrorless, though it's not long they ever had a ghost of a chance to win that category no matter what they did, considering the E-M1 and A7R,
Oly wins two years in a row. Sony the year before that. I doubt you'll ever see a DSLR win camera of the year ever again.
This is nothing special at all. All they did was make a stop-motion video out of long exposures taken at sixty-second intervals so that you see roughly an hour of time elapse per second. Anybody who's rich enough could do that with barely any skill at all.
Why does Nikon keep doing this every year?
Nothing from CANIKON on this list, because they make garbage products! Oly won last year and is going to win again!
Smarter than anything Canikon has ever made, that's for sure.
LOL Canikon got SHUT OUT of the awards! Sony and Oly are the future of photography! Long live mirrorless, death to DSLRS!
A $1700 prime lens and it's not even sharp? What a ripoff. But what else would you expect from Canikon
Wow, didn't even straighten the horizon? And what drab, boring colors. I can't believe this actually won a challenge.
Who are the six idiots that gave this 0.5/5???
Whoever voted 0.5 and 1 stars is a disgrace to the photography community, allowing a wholly inferior and completely uninteresting photograph to win the challenge in stead of this well-composed piece.
How did this picture win? It's completely bland. It's nothing more than a wall painted like a cloudy sky and cut out fake doors and windows. A complete novice could have photographed it. No skill in composition, lighting, dof, or anything is required. It's a perfect example of a postcard snapshot reference photo. A real shame that anybody gave this image more than 2/5.
Mirrorless Crusader: Pure photography? What a joke. This is a digital camera. Nikon should get over itself and start making cameras people will actually buy, not some overzealous hipster fashion accessory that doesn't even have a proper LCD.
The old fashioned cameras didn't allow you to change ISO, WB, AF points, exposure bracketing, need I go on? It's a totally invalid comparison. Any modern camera needs an LCD, period.
pwilly says "I have no idea hwhat to use the LCD for other than chimping." There is more to the LCD than chimping, how about paying attention to your settings?

HSway: @CrusaderThis certainly was not neutral temperature lighting, nothing like 5500k daylight and certainly not a control factor. The angle of the Sun’s (variable factor #1) rays passing through the saturated atmosphere (#2) and the mist (#3) shift perceived colour significantly as does the angle at which you are observing from to mention just the greatest ones. Sorry to sound impolite but you better shut down your PC and get out there to the real world before giving advice about nuances of this excellent shot.Hynek
I don't care what it may or may not look like in the real world. I just care what looks good on the screen, which is where I'm looking at it.
Poor colors. Looks like mildew yellow-green. It should be bright green and/or bright gold.
