On article Hasselblad to announce 'game changer' next week (455 comments in total)

A "'game changer"? Is it "magical" and "revolutionary" too? :-)

(thinking of Apple's favorite marketing clichés.)

In reply to:

caravan: When this minor flap blows over Nikon will continue to be the pack leader.

In worldwide ILC market share, Canon has been the "the pack leader" for thirteen straight years.

D'oh! (What was Nikon thinking.)

And, on their unreleased DL line, Nikon states that there are "serious issues with the integrated circuit for image processing".

Not good.

On article Canon USA launches new online photography courses (25 comments in total)
In reply to:

FuhTeng: I have Lynda.com through my local library and the photography courses have been useful, and it's free to me, so I'll stick with that. There are so many of these types of courses out there, I'm sure having Canon's name on it will help, but how else to distinguish itself? Or is Canon branding enough, like Trump university?

@solarsky: Canon is all about distracting your attention from Pentax et. al.

Pentwho? Pentax's market share is so miniscule that Canon has no reason to be concerned about them.

"...with many thanks to the DIGIC 7 processor..." -DPR

For people who prefer a (fixed-centered) EVF, it will be nice when DIGIC 7 is available in the Canon G5 X line.

"as is typical of Canon cameras (even compacts), the colors are great." -DPR

This is an important factor that is often overlooked, because it doesn't show up on a spec sheet.

In reply to:

fatdeeman: All the canon fans who said only pros should be giving their opinions on these cameras are quiet today.

@fatdeeman: Your comment is based on the fallacy that canon fans usually have negative things to say about Nikon. They generally don't.

Excellent article and photos.

(sarcasm) I though the only thing that mattered was a camera's DxOMark Sensor Score. :-)

On article Nikon offers free battery exchange for D500 owners (95 comments in total)

The D500 was announced in 2016, and some of them came from the factory with pre-2013 batteries? If so, it sounds like Nikon has inventory management problems.

What company will own Motorola brand cellphones next? :-) If memory serves, the company was sold to Google, who sold it to Lenovo.

Sony said that they were shutting down development and planned manufacturing of "high-functionality camera modules for external sale". I wonder if it was camera modules for Apple that they cancelled.

In the USA, Nikon 1 was introduced with television commercials featuring Ashton Kutcher. What could go wrong... :-)

Next, Barney should have the Minnesota Canoe Association teach him how to make a wood-strip solo canoe. Some of those are really works of art.
