english_Wolf: Well, I took 'the challenge' to look at the little girl move...

First typical propaganda, highly contrasted subject vs drab background, not a 'real life' example if you ask me then....

Whatever replaced the child left her shape clearly visible in both the bushes, the grass and the dirt... NOT GOOD at all.

If I could post a detailed image in return that would help but DPR does not allow this... So....

I mean really, a little clone brush work and that is fixed. For a click and move, its really pretty cool.

JacquesBalthazar: When I buy stuff, I look at the price/performance ratio like everyone else, and price is important. But I try and add another dimension to the value equation, and put a high weight on the sustainability/CSR side of things. I am prepared to pay a higher price for items that carry brands that belong to companies who have a publicised policy on those matters. That includes production conditions, fair employment, sourcing policies, environmental impact, etc.

I try and avoid giving my money, directly or indirectly, to sweatshops and environmentally irresponsible producers.

Nikon has a CSR policy. The Nikon point of view is here:

I tried to find information on Pixel's supply chain and CSR policies, and found nothing. They might be a good outfit (their management is proud of their production lines) or they might be pirates, I do not know at all, but if I purchase a grip for my D800, I'll buy it from Nikon, partly for that reason.

If you are true to this approach, stop buying all Asian cameras and see what you can find here made in the USA. They are all made in swewatshops compared to thsi part of the world. But if they were made her they woudl cost as much as your car.

audijam: i have the same conclusion for Vertax BG-11. well built but the feedback from the buttons aren't the same as Canon legit copy and yeah Vertax is of plastic so it does feel different. however....it is still great value for its price.

Actually, for all we pay for the Canon bodies and lenses, they could be a little more reasonable with the add ons and the non OEM market would wither some. These are after all battery holders with switches.

I have the Canon OEM and this one. This one is an amazing value. No crticisms at all. If I had known about it, I would have bought it and never purchased the Canon unless this one stopped working. Its that good.
