When it comes to lighting, I've a lot of respect for Joe McNally. However, I really didn't need all those close shots of his face! :)
There is nothing particularly good about that photo. The composition is poor. Without the story, it severely lacks emotion. It actually seems to take away from the story.Apparently, Pulitzer doesn't mean a whole lot.
I like it, but it's a niche product.
A lens cap tether doesn't look as good, but it's more effective and can be had for $2.
Infared: I say go with this:http://www.ebay.com/itm/SMDV-Speed-Light-PS-360-Bare-Bulb-Flash-aka-Godox-Wistro-AD-360-PB960-Battery-/321311581242?pt=Digital_Camera_Flashes&hash=item4acfa9a43a
You are TOTALLY portable with lots of power and fast recycle!!!!!!
and a lot more expensive.
Rage Joe: Boring, lifeless pictures. Sorry.
The bottles against a white background tell no story. They're more documentation photos than anything else.
Even ONE of these in it's found environment would be more impactful than a all these portraits put together.
I know people are upset about U-Point. So am I. I can kind of understand they've a licensing issue.
What puzzles me more is the lack of any localized edits. If there's a blemish, I don't see how to remove it. I don't even see red-eye removal.
The price is right and it is a respectable replacement for View NX2, but it has a long way to go to be a replacement for Capture NX2. I'll keep running Capture NX2 for now, but when it becomes too dated, I'm not sure what I'll resort to. I'd like to avoid Adobe, but we'll see.
Jun2: buy a camera with wifi
If buying new, yes. I'm not replacing my perfectly good D7000 just to get Wifi, when a sub $100 SD card will give me this feature.
It sure would be nice if Nikon could release a minor update of a product without a lot of people bashing them.
I don't know why the naysayers are so bloody vocal.
Mr Fartleberry: NX 2 = LOL Like using System 7.5 on a Mac.
Looking at your posting history, you're a very negative person. I hope you get better.
bigdaddave: A lovely bit of fun, but I hope this isn't being taken seriously as an 'artistic' project
I'd say even fewer people would consider the peanut butter floor to be art. I took at look at your link and felt sorry for the poor person that has to clean it up.
brn: To pull this off with a small flashlight is impressive. Unfortunately, it's not very interesting.
My critics missed my first sentence.
KariIceland: Okay for all the nay sayers here: Are you guys INSANE?!Also if you don't like it, go and make a BETTER one, put up or shut up.
Opinions are OK, yours included. They don't all have to be positive.

Unlike many posting here, I don't hate HDR. However, in these "photos" it's abused. Looks like something you'd see in a video game.
Will Edwards: It's not in my camera bag, but if in the city in the middle of the night or for sunrise shots, I carry a 9mm, and I know how to use it. If out in the woods, it's a 45mm. And I am not talking about camera lens.
Or at least not where the heck Will lives.
angrywhtman: Why no mention of Capture NX2?
View NX2 is the (Nikon specific) Lightroom competitor. Capture NX2 is much more than a Raw converter. It's much more capable than Lightroom.
GPW: Nikon can spend all this time and money on a web site, but not on a D300/S replacement, A.K.A D400???
Hugo, I find the output from the D90 to be of higher quality than that of the D7000.
How about a D90 replacement? I still recommend used D90's to people, as there's not an adequate replacement for price vs photo quality. Anything else in the Nikon lineup sacrifices too much or is at a much higher price point.
At the same time, I'm thinking of signing up for Nikon Image Space. Good for Nikon.
coudet: Typical - 80% of the pictures show human suffering.
ozturert, I assume you're referring to the photo of Li Wei.

Will the Android Version always be crippled or will we become a update?
Hoping JWest is correct. I don't see any iphone feature that the android shouldn't be able to handle just fine.
