In reply to:

Mark Smiles: Suppose a guy went to an hardware store to purchase a tool, say a hammer. The clerk would then run a credit check to see how much he could afford and quiz him about his intended use of the hammer including if he was going to make any money using the hammer. Then the clerk could then decide on what would be a fair price to charge for the hammer.

Suppose a gal had a sore throat and went to the drugstore to get some cough drops. The clerk would then check how much she could afford to pay, and determine how important her voice was to her earning a living. The clerk could then determine what he could then charge the gal.

In both of these examples the selling price of the product was not based upon the cost of production, but rather the intended use of the product.

I can hear the hammer manufacturer saying he used my hammer to build a million dollar house, of course I deserve a cut of the action, for I made him a tool. Likewise for the gate at the gal's concert ...

Art is not a commodity. Period.

On Olympus OM-D E-M10 First Impressions Review preview (622 comments in total)

I want one! it seems like the perfect upgrade for me from Oly E-pl5 have already bought a collection of lens.
The question is? Is it time to sell my Nikon D800 which I still love, but use less.

Maybe we need a boycott of 500px, any photogs want to remove there photos?This is obscene, and I thought micro stock was a rip off, this takes to to a new level.

John Driggers: (Continued-see prior comment)
The eyefi process is vastly superior to the EZshare process. It just takes a week or so to figure out how to set up the eyefi card. It's not buggy, but the user experience is and they should fix that. However, it's still worth the hassle, as once you get it figured out and set up, it works great, it's fast, it's easy to turn on and off and to switch downloading between computer, tablet and phone. It's just not plug and play.

I have no experience with the new Toshiba card, but would like to hear from someone who has. And please spare us all your guesses, speculation and folk tale comments if you do not have a Toshiba card. You're just making noise in the wind.

I am a geek very familiar with WIFI and could never get ehr card to consistency transfer, I has a approve camera... I sold it..

Nikon has no vision when it comes to the web.
Also, please give up on NX or re-design the interface.
They gave up on Nik? What's up now Nikon? A New new secret plan is
to add wifi to a projector in a coolpix camera. lol

In reply to:

daciangroza: 20gb is a lot of space, I'd use it as a backup for my final processed images. It would be great if they'll have integrated uploads from Lightroom, like Flickr does. I hope Nikon is watching suggestions like these.

Don't hold you breath

In reply to:

DigitalOxygenca: Yet another SD based wireless memory card. When are these companies going to wake up and tap the professional market with Compact Flash versions?

I don't see a shipping date?
It's interesting that it's approved for the Nikon D800
I tried the Samsung smart camera to my Galaxy III phone at Photo expo and it's painfully slow.
Never see Toshiba cards for sale any where?

Ok, Inquiring minds want to know? What did he get paid for on the image?
He ran up up a lot of expense and was he on assignment for the New Yorker or free lance?
Anyway I'd read the New Yorker article.
Got to go vote !!!

On New app offers 'photo school' for $.99 post (3 comments in total)

I'll wait and see reviews, there are no samples of a lesson or outline of content. I only see marcos and photoshop, not interested in learn photoshop on a phone.

You can buy a whole Samsung camera with built in wifi for $129 on Amazon
Why would you spend $99 on this card?
IMHO.My Eye-Fi X2 never worked right, so why would I gamble on this card, besides it doesn't work with a D800
