  • Is that what Canon was telling us in 1940 when it diversified into the X-ray camera business, and yet the company's consumer camera business had 7 decades of growth ahead of it? Is that what Canon ...
  • Right. Buying used gear for about 50% of what it's worth on the open market is standard practice for camera stores. This has been true in the U.S. since time immemorial. The dealer obviously needs ...
  • Replied in consumption
    Are you seriously arguing that the historically unprecedented expansion of the global middle class, and the concurrent contraction of the worldwide population trapped in poverty, is not going to ...
  • Replied in huh?
    I'm gonna' assume that you answered so fast you didn't have time to think about this statement.
  • First, let me complain about not hearing more from your terrapin friend. I'm badly in need of his advice on matching my belt to my shoes and several other topics. Lately, two separate, ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery

  • Have you looked at the various choices in the 'Camera Calibration' panel of the Develop module? For my Sony (an NEX-7), Adobe has created a number of profiles designed to emulate the JPEGs from ...
  • Evidently, you're just supposed to enter a serial number in your LR CC trial; it will be re-branded as Lightroom 6 and work as it is supposed to. But apparently there's a small trick or two ...
  • Replied in yes
    Yes, thanks. In my head I was thinking "one point on the pro side" in favor of the camera division, but the way I phrased the sentence -- i.e. using the word "closing" -- I should have said "con", ...
  • Yes, if Nikon's camera business goes into the red, it's a bigger problem for Nikon than it would be for other large camera companies. But that's a different issue than the question of which camera ...
  • Your post was, by definition, relative -- the word "first" makes it so. People are responding the way they are because of that -- Nikon's camera business is much, much healthier than nearly all ...
  • Replied in not the issue
    Yes, Apple certainly ruins the curve. Sure, the camera market is troubled and has been for 3 years. But Nikon is one of the two companies that is, so far, weathering that trouble with continued ...
  • Nikon is not part of a larger conglomerate. It is an independent, publicly traded corporation and no single shareholder holds anything close to a controlling interest in Nikon. And its camera ...
  • You made a general point about "side-by-side" competition everywhere, and I was responding to that general point. In some places and circumstances -- especially in high tourist traffic areas -- ...
  • Actually, in this particular environment, there's a good chance that it's an indication that the "competing" stores are all owned by the same person, who is trying to make it appear as if there is ...
  • I'm sorry to say that I don't have any special insight on sensor technology based on my years at Nikon. Mine was not an engineering job. As a photographer, and also as a camera reviewer (part of ...
  • I've never had a problem from police either, and I often set up a tripod, sometimes in high-ish traffic areas. I see small semi-commercial shoots going on in the city (NYC) all the time -- a ...
  • I don't think it's as simple as a revenue grab, although it's true that parks and wilderness areas all over the U.S. are charging higher and higher use fees of all kinds (from parking on up) to ...
  • Very, very doubtful that there are paid sock puppets here (or anywhere) who are part of a coordinated campaign to bash competitors (as opposed to praising their own products). Bashing competitors ...
  • I do (business being camera testing/reviewing). I just find it cleaner to be able to do my camera testing work in a separate catalog -- I will often take 1,000 or more test pictures with a camera, ...
