erick4x4: Alright, I'm gonna bump this one way up since its the last one of the 4th, 3rd, 2nd portion of this series...

You are welcome to make your own challenges with those ideas. I however am pleased with how they have been...

Wildbegonia: It is Sunday 18th may, 11:37 am, on this side of the planet and the challenge is already full. I guess next time I will put the alarm clock to wake up at 4:00am in the morning to place an entry in the challenge, hoppin also the internet is in full service. Ah, hopping. It is not sunday again for after a loaded Saturday nigh of dancing, it will be impossible for me to wake up early on a Sunday.

I will increase the limit.

In reply to:

Bangers and Mash: You mention in the additional rules to include the challenge you got 4th in. Can I assume that this is a typo error considering the challenge is about entering a 3rd place image from a previous challenge.

So sorry, definitely a typo...can't change it now that it started.

3rd place!

In reply to:

bluemoonman: Great idea for a challenge but what happens if you come 4th in this challenge? can you enter in a future two times 4th challenge?

Now we are getting into really scary infinite regression stuff like "Can God microwave a burrito so hot that he can't eat it?".

:)

cjf2: Sadly there's such a good selection here, lots of great photos are going to worse than 4th and at least 71 people are going to be upset again! Perhaps a series of 4th place challenges with a limit of three entries would be the way to please everyone, albeit very slowly.

Worse than 4th in a competition of all 4th's is nothing to be ashamed about. Its a best of the best type thing. Someone is going to get last place, but they were still better than all but 3 of the original challenge and have to hold their head up high!

The point of this challenge is to give a win (or 2nd or 3rd) to 3 images that happened to be in unusually strong challenge the first time, not to give hundreds of images a win.

Ok I went up to 75...that'll be it as I'm already worried that getting too big makes it feel too daunting to vote on all.

jetals: I thought this challenge would be popular. It has been open for only 1 3/4 hours & is more than half full already.
Do you plan on increasing the number of entries?

I just increased it to 50, glad it's so popular.

24p, time after time, nothing. How hard can it be? It would be a sweet video platform...

ericsan: IS on the 24 & 28 mm is a marketing trap to sell at higher price...we don't need IS on these light primes !
Still expecting the long awaited 35mm f/2 renewal WITHOUT IS !!!
Come on Canon move again !

Yes, but no professional videographer really handholds production shoots. Monopods are the minimum, but most are using tripods, jibs, steady cams, etc.

dgc4rter: I'm sure this is good news for many but I'm a photographer, not a cinematographer. Video has never held any attraction for me and I can't see that it ever will. There are many with the same feeling too and it feels like we're being dumped on the wayside at the moment with so much attention to video technology and hardly any in the development of high MP, high ISO sensor technology for still photography.

The best thing Nikon could do now would be to announce that 36 MP dedicated SLR with better low-light, high ISO performance than the D3s. That's what would get my vote and my money.

Birthday cake and skydiving?? Why comment if you "DONT CARE WHAT ANYONE SAYS". Motion Pictures are just that "Motion" Pictures. They both use lenses, sensors, and cameras, one just puts them together with audio.

They are different for sure, but they are based on the same thing. You don't have to like the dSLR video, but to make foolish statements that say they are unrelated is silly.
