On photo Herring Gull sneaks into Puffin Picture in the animal photo bombs challenge (10 comments in total)

"Great Shot!"
"It's supposed to be without the seagull in the frame."
"In that case not so good."

Just joking. My favorite dialog from "The Lone Ranger".

A truly great capture!

Wow. 200 frame RAW buffer. It will take you some time to find the one best shot out of the 7.000 you took during the first half time of your daughters soccer game. ;)

Seriously: This camera and the new 200-500 lens makes me want to dive into bird photography again. We live in amazing times. What a camera! The holy grail for amateur wildlife photographers.

10 years ago I would haven given everything for a compact camera with those specs. Today not so much.

Jerry Pruce: The more pixels the better. But why does it have to be so expensive? If it was around $3000 I'd buy it. And I wish they would make it smaller. Maybe in the next year or two, they'll come out with the 200mp version and the 100mp one will drop in price more to my liking. I think their shooting themselves in the foot by not offering the camera at an affordable price for the masses.

Yeah. iPhone size and $800 and a lot more people would buy it. No idea why it has to be so big and why it must be so expensive. I guess those companies are all gangsters. ;)

ElviraGrey: The one with the cranes(?) and the mountain layers in the background is incredible. Nice set.

1. It's a spoonbill not a crane.
2. He missed to copy the reflections too.
3. it should be clearly marked as a product of photoshop.

Except that it is only one spoonbill that has been captured in his flight and than copied back into the picture.

The Half Dome looks impressive but it is hardly the top of the world.

So it can carry an apple too. Impressive!

I understand that we all hate to change lenses but this is ridiculous. Next sensor or AF innovation and you have to trow away all your lenses instead of just replacing your camera.
Just to be different is not enough.

I love his pictures. All these penguin shots taken on blue sky days make it very easy to forget that these blue sky days are rare.

On article Fujifilm X100T Review (678 comments in total)

I'm sure it is a great camera. Loved my X100. I sold it but most likely will replace it with the X100T or its successor because I always wanted a black X100.

I also have a Ricoh GR. I'm with the people that state that the Ricoh is great to shoot and nobody thinks it a serious camera but the Ricoh GR can't replace the Fuji X100 and vice versa. They are completely different cameras and shooting experience is completely different too.

For some the Ricoh GR might be better camera for others the Fuji X100 would be the by far better choice. They really can't be compared but I did for those who don't have the chance to try them out side by side.
