In reply to:

Glen Barrington: The REAL question is when are they going to produce cameras people want to buy?

a fast 50-200 would be very useful

On SmugMug launches totally redesigned website article (76 comments in total)

I have been a SmugMug user since 2004 and although was quite happy with the format that I had developed which was near to their default, I do welcome the change. The impact on those who had made major changes to the appearance of their sites prior to the new format I would think have more issues than me. The setup and transfer to the new format for me has taken about 5 hours with a series of tinkering sessions, it wasn't instant and is on-going. Some of the changes are intuitive some less so. Tutorials would certainly have helped.
I like the new styles and I am sure I will adapt some more as time goes by. So my vote is that it has been a good move.

They might have launched it but when will it appear in the shops? I can hardly wait...:)
.... to complete my bag, I would really have liked something like the ZD50-200, however having used the 12-35 f2.8 I will certainly get the 35-100 even though it is a bit short!

On User Guide: Getting the most out of the Olympus E-M5 article (262 comments in total)

Thanks Richard, excellent idea ...... and considering the customerisation possible with the camera you may need even more pages as work-a-rounds of other different aspects are identified.

On One missing!!! in the Playground challenge (6 comments in total)

A clever shot! I really like this. 1st child looking back at empty seat just adds to the dynamics. I can see a flash was used but it would be interesting to know the rest of the setup. (shame the adult in the back had something reflective on their coat)

On Green with Envy! in the 'G' for GARDEN WITH GREEN challenge (3 comments in total)

Congratulations, this fits the challenge so well, but also it is an excellent image. Just goes to show you don't need an all-singing/dancing camera to produce excellent pics.

On Kodak files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection article (98 comments in total)

Kodak used to provide x-ray film and since the mid 90s had been a very substantial player (along with Fuji and Agfa) amongst the providers for digital x-ray (Radiology).
In the UK they provided probably 1/5 of NHS hospitals with sensors for x-ray imaging .. (these 'sensors' are not as in cameras but photostimulable phosphors) I suspect this side of their business was fairly good except the turnover (no film) was less..... they are now called Carestream so they probably sold that part of the company off!

On Together....Alone in the Depression challenge (6 comments in total)

Chris, I agree with your comment (and really think the image is excellent) however I think what is lacking is some ‘Rules for Voting’ that are similar for all challenges. A 5.0 would be excellent and a 0.5 the other end of the scale that would be most efective if you were voting on all of the images. When I first voted eons ago I was worked on the rules of another photo-challenge: that I may have a total of (say) 30 stars to allocate so would only vote on those images that caught my eye few may get 5 and others may get .5 the ones I didn’t vote on got 0 so a 0.5 was still better than nothing. (perhaps this should have gone in a discussion forum - Oh well too late now!) Once again A great image!

On Morning in the Valley in the Fog challenge (3 comments in total)

A picture post card that could grace many picture frames! Lovely composition, colour and detail. Well done (obviously worth getting up for - I'm assuming early morning! ...but if sundown - it was worth staying up for!)... Jerry
