CameraLabTester: No wonder teenagers and young professionals will never buy Time Magazine.
These are the 10 reasons.
Im pretty sure most teens don't buy magazines anymore. :)
RedFox88: Time should rename them: their most graphically violent and disturbing images of the year.
Ben O Connor: I protest the photographer, who took the picture before someone's slaughter! Sir don't you have ethics?
KariIceland, unless the photographer has a weapon with a backup squad or armed men I can imagine there is little an individual can do to stop this. If he intervenes, he too will probably get overwhelmed and killed.
KariIceland: Truly disturbing images, the one of the execution speaks volume more about the photographer rather than the ones doing the execution, the photographer is worse in my opinion in this case.
If the photographer had interfered with the execution it will not only keep him from doing his job but also get him killed as well, accomplishing nothing.
Adobe lowering its prices for CC? Lower then expected sign ups possibly?
Even at 10 bucks a month, no thanks Adobe, CS6 Photoshop is the last product I'm buying from you unless you revise your rental only policy.
Richard Murdey: Adobe are offering their software at a special discount bundle price of $60 a year each for LR and Photoshop.
DPreview members: "No! The horrible scum! I'm never giving them any money again!"
I'm telling you now: You guys are a strange bunch.
Once they have enough subscribers how sure are you that Adobe won't yank up the price months later?
Nukunukoo: Nice. Just wished they included sensor shift OIS.
I know four female professional photographers and 1 videographer who post in dpreview. However they either use neutral and masculine handles.
pdelux: Can someone explain to me why this Costs almost $3K, is it because it has no direct competition?
Its a very pretty camera, but there a lots of pretty cameras.. is it just a stripped down D4 with added manual controls? Havent seen the specs yet but I doubt it will be a sports FPS monster like a D4? So where is the Moulah going to?
Its built like a brick, somewhat unnecessarily. I mean D4 needs the bulk for batteries portrait grip.. etc..
Please enlighten me.
My guess is this camera is Nikon's shot at the premium/boutique product category.
claudio leone: The 2014 EOS C100, will come with that ?
HetFotoAtelier: What an ugly Canon Retro Camera ;-)
Hey! We Canon users love our ugly cameras! Shove off! :D
Yxa: I thought it was a leaf blower
We need more post like yours. People are taking this camera business way to seriously.
The Photo Ninja: I'd pay $500 if they could add that to my 5d mark iii
If this was only standard practice in the DSLR world. Man I would kill to them upgrade my 1DX too. Haha At least you 5DM3 owners have Magic Lantern.
Timbukto: What is it that causes people to assume that software = free, but hardware costs money. Duplication and mass production of software has relatively insignificant costs in terms of energy and waste (fueled by junk food and soda cans perhaps), but the development and R&D costs are still there. Your photos can be duplicated for little to no cost as well, does that mean your photos should be free? The C100 is not even a mainstream consumer device where most of you should even gripe about, let the very few professional C100 owners complain. Our society places no value about the worth of firmware updates and the development that goes into it...but I bet you value techies the moment your OS F's up and you need to hire a techie to recover your photos. A camera with great hardware and absolute crap firmware still can make for a crap camera. So why the double-standard...one where you greatly value competent robust and innovative software, and one where you completely disregard its worth?
Exactly. I'm not even sure if those who are complaining about this upgrade are C100 owners themselves.
I think this is a great update especially for the run and gun type of shooter like myself. I do a lot of documentaries alone. I know manual focus is probably the best way to do it for many pros but I do a ton of interviews with multiple C100s so things like autofocus tracking will probably not only make my job a bit easer but open up a couple of new creative possibilities in my shots. Not a bad thing at all, besides its really nice to have the choice.
If you are a hobbyist, 500 bucks might not be justifiable but this is simply a business expense if you make your bread and butter with these cameras.
Ken Johnes: 500 $ for a silly firmware upgrade? and the target audiance for this camera have been waiting eagerly for this AF upgrade . wow, greed and trying to milk it´s customers with incremental upgrade are gonna hurt the big dogs here, both of em, look at what nikon is trying to do.
i think nikon and canon are competing with each other on how to sell less for more, while other companies are making innovative products at a fair price , no wonder these greedy top dogs have to make up for their loss with such silly act..
Still much better then bringing out a new model with the exact specs but with a Dual Pixel AF. *Cough*D610*Cough*
Plastek: How about an upgrade for 1Dx?
Maaan I wish! But is there any DSLR brand out there that offers a hardware upgrade path? Firmware probably but not hardware.
Nukunukoo: Bravo for the upgrade. But WTF $500??? I bet the tech will just plug the thing onto the USB, upload, grab a coffee, then write the invoice... Pretty complex stuff.
If you are making money with this camera $500 is chump change.
Pritzl: Love it or hate it, it's better than charging full price + premium for a totally new camera that has only minor differences to the old model (*cough* 700D/D610 *cough*). If Canon really pre-built DPAF hardware into the C100 and are simply enabling it now then it's brilliant future-planning by their engineers. Not sure why they had to test-run it on the 70D first though.
Also keep in mind, that for the target audience $500 is not a lot of money considering the base cost of the camera.
Yeah excellent point. If you make money with this camera $500 is actually not a lot of cash.
Todd Ka: Perfect! Now a picture taken by a $3000 camera can look like a picture taken with an app on a $300 phone, so it can look like it was taken with a $70 ebay purchase.
Haha thats one way to put it. But seriously it is still gives us a choice and choice is always good.
