I left Nikon many years ago, but the Nikon DL18-50 may convince me to come back due to the Hybrid AF.
Great shot and damn you for taking it in Colorado. We'd love to move there, but it's tough to pack up your entire life and move several thousand miles.
Steve Bingham: Been there - but never in the early AM. Awesome photo - and the best out of dozens I have seen. The road you traveled on is, at times, a narrow (one car) shelf road with death a certainty if you fall off the shelf. It has been called the most dangerous road in Colorado due to the almost dozen deaths. I can't imagine traveling this road at night!!!!!!! I don't imagine Sierravin ever had an SUV up this road!!!!! :)
However, I do see some perspective distortion. PS CC or earlier can easily handle this. Puzzled how it got 5 poor votes - and the very reason I no longer submit!
sierravin, the Toyota 4Runner is an SUV and it will hold its own against pretty much anything off-road.
Great photo. Makes me want to travel west right now.
It's a little overdone, but I like it nonetheless.
Really cool photo. :)
This shouldn't even be a question. The only reason any officer would not want to be record is because they are violating the law. Moreover, they are performing their job in public and as such, there is no reason why recording them should ever be prohibited.
AngryCorgi: Success = what happens when Canon uses Sony sensors instead of the nonsense they fab.
The S95 used a Sony sensor as well.
After having rented the G1X M2 when it was first released, I decided not to purchase it based on its inability to lock focus in some low light situations. Then about 2 weeks ago, I reconsidered, as I wanted a new toy for an upcoming backpacking trip. I've still had the focusing issues, as well as some focusing issues I was previously unaware of; the camera often locks focus on some tiny object in the frame rather than object desired. That aside, I'm really enjoying the camera and any shortcomings in IQ (compared to a DSLR) are more than made up for in shooting enjoyment.
NeilJones: How do you hold those things? Seriously, so awkward, no grip, just a slippery box. Not a great design at all. At least the Panny's give you something to hold.
I've got larger hands than most men and yet have never had a problem holding any of the S-series cams. Take off the mittens.
B1ackhat: That is a completely ridiculous defense to copyright infringement. If I set my camera up on a tripod remotely controlled by my phone and one of my dogs licks the screen thereby triggering the shutter, the photo then becomes the property of no one. That's ludicrous.
Easycass, my pack is spoiled rotten so I think they would be quite pleased. :) Besides, it costs us ~$300/month just to feed them so they should start earning their keep. ;)

Sony has produced yet another excellent pocket cam ... with the same problems as its predecessors (awful IS, poor color accuracy, less malleable RAWs, etc.). I ditched my RX100 when I had paid $550, but just picked up another for $280. I would gladly pay $800 for the M3 if they could fix those same damn problems, but until then, I'll just wait until I can snag one for $400.
So Firefly is essentially going to do what the apps I have already do. Tell me why this would be appealing?
Well accurate color is a lost cause with either camera, so that's a wash. The better sensor is almost inevitably going to be found in the Sony. Panasonic, however, is (imho) a far better camera maker. And that price is very reasonable!
