In reply to:

vadims: You know guys, to me, this is hypocrisy at it's worst.

People get hellbent over darkened photos or removed objects... But isn't "adding/removing" (or rather "selecting") objects what photographers do when they frame AND press shutter?

Let's take BBC coverage of elections in Russia. Every freaking year I see images on bbc.co.uk with an old woman, or soldier (conscript), or both, casting their votes. For an outside observer, it would seem like no-one else votes in Russia.

To go on and say "we maintain highest standards of image taking, that old woman and the soldier were not over-darkened blah blah blah" is such a joke...

So, my dear purists, you're so funny. And sad.

Nice attempt at deflection.

Too bad there's still no regulations about the unwanted use of cameras in public places.

On Nikon D750 flare investigated: Why we're not worried article (364 comments in total)
In reply to:

LF Photography: As a Pentax user, I have no horse in this race, but here's something to put things in perspective:

NO D750 USER ANYWHERE is as sorry as Nikon is, that the D750 has this issue. Just like no D750 user will ever be able to experience what it's like to pay millions of dollars for a mistake they made.
These things happen in all industries, especially with cutting edge hardware. Nikon acknowledged the problem. They're doing everything possible to fix it. They're offering free service and, if necessary, replacement.
What more do you want?
Seriously, tell me what else you want them to do at this point, and see if you can do it without sounding like a spoiled brat.

@Simple man: Thank you for your kind words of support. I was beginning to fear that the reception to my sensible and lenient proposal would be similar to the furore that erupted over my suggestion that as punishment for a misplaced pixel in iTunes 11.1, every single employee and executive of Apple should be deported to Saturn.

It's so difficult to find reasonable people these days.

They could dissolve the corporation and return all the money to the shareholders for a start.

Following that by making every single (ex) employee personally financially responsible for this disaster would also be good.

But since I am feeling merciful, I will not advocate burning their homes and salting the ashes.

I'm enjoying seeing the Nikon PR people twist themselves into pretzels to try and justify this latest debacle.

In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: Customers are so grumpy. This problem is random and only appears under very specific conditions. Unlike oily shutters, it's fixable. If you want to argue that Nikon would not have done anything prior to the D600 fiasco I agree, but they've learned their lesson.

@fmian: Not nearly as much as you enjoy being pointlessly pedantic.

So Nikon is failing then. No surprise really.

Wubslin: I'm not allowed to point out that Nikon products have issues; apparently that's being a 'Canon fanboy'.

So I will join in the rest of the users and deny that Nikon products have issues, because only a 'Canon fanboy' would ever claim that.

@winter1:

> you being misinformed
> what insults

I rest my case.

Yeah, that pretty much sums up my motivation. How clever of you to notice.

@winter1: Not sure where you think you're coming from with those insults.

And FYI, I get your implication that I'm a Canon supporter. Nothing could be further from the truth. I don't particularly care for their products and don't own any.

In fact I don't even have a camera.

In reply to:

ryansholl: At what point does Nikon start shipping packaging to big box stores with postage already affixed for the return trip?

Durr hurr that's funny because sometimes manufactured products are defective.

You're so hilarious.

On Hands-on with Nikon's new D5500 article (287 comments in total)
In reply to:

Gazeomon: Another entry level Nikon masterpiece, which makes upgrading from the D3300 an absolute 'must', especially with not having this horrible GPS anymore. Keep it coming Nikon we are so excited about Your innovative spirit and bargain pricing. Can't wait to get my hands on the black Nikon plastic with a new number on it.

I know, I can hardly contain my excitement at wasting money on some plastic digital trash with a slightly different number stamped on it!

It would be even greater if they made cameras that worked.

Not that that would make me buy one anyway.

It must feel really good to Nikon FANS...they got a rating they wanted.
NOW GO OUT AND SHOOT AND LEAVE THE CANON FORUM AND BASHING FOR A WHILE....

SONYAL and the whole team put a big effort in doing this review.
Now how about a PLATINUM award!!!!

@Segaman: It's nothing to do with whether English is your first language or not, it's someone's *name*.

Awesome.

Outdated and inadequate technology, crammed into an unattractive form-factor, with an impenetrable user interface, producing substandard results.

It's almost as if Nikon *want* to fail.

@Hans I have considered not buying a Nikon and found that much more preferable.
