Well I guess we are on a total downward spiral to the bottom on everything fake from Boobs to photos. This makes PS look like total reality compared to this for unrealistic outcomes..

Even though he was Canadian, he had the funny English wit about him.

I really enjoyed his reviews with the puns he used in pretty much every one of them. Was a pleasure to read his stuff. Few and far between people like him in the world. Pretty much impossible to replace I guess in this time we live in now..

Glad I followed him from pretty much the start. Nothing but respect for him. Sad day for sure.

One of the nicest pictures I have seen on here for months and it is from a P&S basically!

Wow, well done, very nice. Maybe I need to sell all my gear and use a 150 dollar tool to make it happen LoL.

We are talking a EoS M mount, not a 600mm 2.8 FF lens! Get a grip.

Sports Shooter: who's is young enough to remember the Pentax LX? It had a good lens/accessories system build around it. I fell in love with the K1000 and was seriously thinking to get the LX but then I went for the Canon F1.
The K-1 sounds like a great affordable FF camera but Pentax is lagging behind with the lens system.

Bought a Nikon Nikkorex F and a 50 2.0 in the Navy in 1966. Had it until a few years ago.

The bags with all the strap options seem like it is a well thought out product.

I see they are expensive, but so is the gear you are putting in it. I will have to give them some more thought. Thanks for the review.

Jeff Greenberg: More $$ = higher starting salaries

Logical if Sony don't go greedy...?
The rest & even dropouts to Canon & Nikon...

Everyone does not need a college degree. I bet a plumber or electrician makes more money than a lot of college grads. God knows we need them more than another MBA grad.

I don't think anyone having one should be unhappy about it, but a lot of people have degrees in subjects that they are never going to get a job in that pays even 30k a year.

If you have a talent go for it. What if that band was the Beetles, Stones. I bet their parents were against them also.

Do what you want to do. Its your life, enjoy it while you are young. Plenty of years to put your nose to the grindstone if that is your thing. Young people now will probably have to work 70 years before you retire!!

I don't really see how you can beat it for the price. It would open up a lot more dimensions in your work. I am tempted!

On article Upwardly mobile: Sony a6300 Review (2077 comments in total)

Anyone notice that there are like vertical strips on the back wall between the picture frame and the lamp of the black and white area of the old women in a rocking chair, with the a6300, a6000, a5300 and it is not present in no other camera I can find. There is even horizontal stripes on the woman's standing face.

Scorpius1: Nice to see Hasselblad back in the mix, Now they should go and revise some of the glass , they need more HC (as opposed too HCD ) glass of top quality to make the most of the sensor!

I think this is their 75th anniversary. So I expect some good things from them. And they have a new CEO to boot.

Wow, looks pretty darn impressive, and the price is not bad either.

Would have been nice at 20mp but can't have everything.

Well this should end some debates on how older gear is no slouch, and that we really have not made as may strides as we are lead to believe.

Ah, the forum Police, got to love them!

I bet your friends really can't wait to see you.

webrunner5: When you compare it to a Nikon 7200 well guess what it still is not as good. Nice try Canon. Better than before, but still behind.

I have been a Canon user for years and years, but 3 years ago I just gave up on their new stuff. They are living in the past. And still are.

They make darn good lenses, better than Nikon, and have more of what you need but...

To me great DR is one of the last things missing on Digital cameras yet.

We have pretty good high ISO on most. If you can shoot at ISO 6400 you got most stuff covered. Banding seems to be a thing of the past. Just about every company now makes a camera that is darn good at picture making.

But Only Nikon seems to have really figured out how to do High DR in their cameras well. And that is the difference between getting the shot you Have to have to put food on the table.

And I don't care what anyone says Canon has still not figured it out, and will be 2 to 3 generations behind Nikon.

I want a camera that takes what I see in the viewfinder, not 2/3 of it. Nikon and Sony are top dog in it and they are getting my money, not Canon. I am sure if you could take all your Canon lenses and put them on a Nikon body with no penalty, Canon would would sell one heck of a lot less cameras..
