On My son Richard rides his white bike in the Simulation challenge (2 comments in total)

Why is he riding side saddle? His left arm should have been between his knees for a "more" accurate look.

Crashed my old bike in April. This is my new 2012 Surly LHT on a 300+ mile road trip.

In reply to:

Mostly Lurking: Cyan color cast, over-exposed, over-sharpened, over-saturated, poor composition. Otherwise, a great photo! ;^)

The composition is great, I don't know where you went to art school, but you are way off base (pun intended) on that point.

As for the rest, it may have been exactly what he was going for. I don't think he was trying for "photograph" look. I think it looks great.

Yeah, the other two cars. And the background is not very good either.

Nice car, nice photo angle.

Old bike, new panniers, cheap helmet = tons of fun.

Wow, look at that lens - it looks like a pin-hole camera. :)

photo nuts: Why are there more comments on the release of these lenses than the D800? Isn't the latter a far more interesting product? ;)

Maybe there is more interest in lens that will fit the camera bodies they already have.......Cannon!

CameraLabTester: Ooh Wow!

I still call mine Fred.

In reply to:

healer81: smart move for canon to develop a new 24-70mm mark II because its such a popular lens, however they should have put IS in it

I dont get the primes either.. They should have at least made it 2.0

I agree, they put IS on the two primes but NOT the Wedding Photogs "go-to" lens?

Zvonimir Tosic: Is it pocketable? What's the price? I was looking for a camera that can replace my broken Panasonic LX3 ..

It's pocketable if you wear bib overalls.

EGouws: So what happened to the rumour of a 31mp 5D MKIII? I thought one can only take picture with more mp? Thanks Canon for putting an end to the race. Soon people will discover what the art of photography is about (or I hope so).

The pros already know what photography is about - the 1D series is designed for them and by them (from their input).

It's always the wantta-be's that whine and complain about things that don't really matter.

thelensmeister: Thanks Canon, at least I can keep my Fuji order in place....
Dont forget all those clikin moms with 5DII's though..
Its like the G10 to G11/12 megapixel job.
One things for sure though if Canon dont release a 5D replacement with better AF soon (ie instead of holding it back through marketing spite) people will dash over to Nikon lol
Am i allowed to lol on here? i am typing this on my iphone...

Don't you mean iLOL?

Serhan Oksay: Interesting strategy from Canon:
Most were expecting a 5D Mk III (which is believed to have more fans, therefore more sales potential) but instead they introduced a new (or modified) big gun. 18 MP means the 21 MP 5D MkII will continue to sell like hot cakes in spite of its age.
After all this seems to be a sensible move as this product has put an end to the 1D & 1Ds and Mk confusion at the top of the range: a big X on them! There should have been only one "KING" on the Canon DSLR range in the first place.

Now the photographers are waiting to see a mirrorless camera from Canon before its too late...and where we shall be able to use our manual FD lenses. Do we have to wait for Canons traditional semi-annual announcements or will it come before that?

We really need a new announcement. This big "X" might have satisfied the Canon bosses and shareholders but not us. We need a smaller, cute "xxx" that we can buy and shoot and satisfy our desire...

Why just a 3 series? Why not do ALL of the single digit odd numbers and be done with it?

1 series
3 series
5 series
7 series
9 series

pacogwapo: if only apple makes pro camera this would be rubbish in comparison.

"too many buttons, too many BS, ugly ergonomics!"

Amen to that - Why can't Canon make a one button point&shoot 1D camera with a fixed lens that can fit in my shirt pocket?

Anastigmat: That is funny. The body is so big, but Canon cannot find any space inside to build in the GPS unit. I think it is more likely that they just want to charge the customer for this gadget. Nevertheless, it is huge improvement on the previous cameras, which require the purchase of a wireless transfer unit and a GPS unit before a GPS data can be integrated into the camera.

Why don't you show Cannon how it's done - send them YOUR working prototype.

amir_np: A large amount of money for these poor features in this monster body.... not worth at all

Are you kidding? This is the best and LEAST EXPENSIVE top of the line 1D EVER. The original 4mp 1D listed for $5499 and the original 11mp 1Ds listed for $8000. NEITHER had even one 10th the features of this camera.
