On 1991 Nikon-Kodak hack was first DSLR in space news story (31 comments in total)

As I read the comments below I am surprised by how many digital imaging experts, space flight experts and business experts we have on this board.

On Canon recalls about 14,000 PowerShot SX50 cameras news story (54 comments in total)

This could be a new ad campaign for Nikon.

On Adobe launches Lightroom for iPad post (131 comments in total)

At first I was skeptical of this business model from Adobe, but now I like it. Before the cloud I just couldn't see myself buying the full Photoshop product for $600 or so when something new would be out next year. Now for $12 a month I get PS CC and Lightroom 5.

I think that's a good deal.

I've been shooting DX for years now, but now I think it's time to move up to FX.

On Sigma to pay Nikon $14.5 million for VR patent infringement news story (200 comments in total)
In reply to:

yabokkie: it's interesting that Sigma copied Nikon instead of Canon.
does it mean VR is better or cheaper than IS?

If Canon doesn't sue, then why would they patent their technology?

Who manufactures the sensor? I didn't find that in the release.

I'm a Nikon shooter but I'm sure my observations would apply to over platforms as well.

For a couple of years now I've felt that Nikon would develop and release too many Coolpix models. Coolpix P7000, P7100, P8000, etc.? Is there really that much of a difference there? Of course by know it's no secret that smartphones are having compacts for lunch.

Another thing regarding the Nikon lineup is that they should consider dropping the 3XXXX line. The 5XXX line isn't all that much more pricey and time and effort saved could be used to get the D400 out.

On Tamas Dezso offers glimpse into post-Communist Romania news story (238 comments in total)

I'm confused by what the photographer is trying to achieve. These photos make "post-communist" Romania look like a place in which you don't want to live or visit. Does this mean that communist Romania was preferable?

On Staircase at the Loretto Chapel in the Sante Fe, New Mexico challenge (2 comments in total)

It should be noted that the bannisters were not included in the original work. They were added later as the sisters felt uneasy using such stairs with no assistance.

On Tamron to develop 150-600mm F5-6.3 ultra-telephoto zoom news story (193 comments in total)

Really looking forward to it. I've got the 17-50 SP 2.8 and also the 70-300 VC and love them both. Been thinking of getting the bigma but now I have a choice in the lower cost market.

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

The problem with retro, and this applies to all makers, is that customers may think you're using old equipment for their special moments.

Sorry if this question has been asked before, but why does a Nikon FX camera always show higher marks compared to the DX camera?
