These images are average quality. The composition is good but not great, the saturation levels are appropriate, but the white balance is blatantly and arbitrarily warm in many of the images. The lightingwas very poorly done in some of these images, especially #1 with the foreground being desperately needing flash and in some other images the flash was used inappropriately. Overall I would grade this a C+. I certainly could have done better with thousands of dollars worth of gear and enough money to spend all day taking pictures without having to work for a living.
Nothing special; anybody could have taken those pictures if they were rich and insane enough to spend their time biking to every third world country they can find.
Are there any lenses that explode if you drop them or smash them against something?
StevenE: What about the scores of incredibly lucky photos captured by accident. They were not knowingly planned.As a photographer, you will have to keep your mouth shut about everything you do, and say only: I planned this shot and it came out exactly as I had intended.Say nothing else to anyone, ever.
Wrong, all you have to do is take your own damn pictures.
cgarrard: DOH- No battery cover door :)
Do I get a prize?
Actually Carl you get a a big fat demerit for not even reading the article which plainly states that the battery cover is part of the battery.
Just one more reason why Oly and Sony >>>> Canikon
This is not image theft, you are transforming an image with a watermark into an image without a watermark.
BRPWS: After all the bad things you guys wrote about this camera how does it get a silver award? Your review and your award contradict each other.
The reason is because they have to market the camera so they can sell it in Gear Shop (conflict of interests much?) so they give every Canikon camera an award because that's how DPR makes money.Most shoppers never read the reviews and just look at the awards.
$1750 for a kit lens, what a joke
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
