I wouldn't dare explore the world with this bag unless both me and my bodyguard were packing some serious firepower.

Aaron801: These bags look like the kind of designer wear that would be a target of theives becuase they look very expsenive. If usedfor thier intened purpose the theives would get a pretty nice bonus of an expensive bag WITH some expensive photo gear in it. I do think these bags are pretty stylish but I'd much rather put my camera gear into something that looks much more ordinary...

Yeah, all the times when I was robbed was just my paranoia ... it was all in my head ... not real.

AngularJS: Does it mean "handmade in England" is superior to "handmade in China"?

In the past something "handmade in China" meant something very rare and well made. How things change.

I used to think that a still image was the perfect solution for everything ... until I evolved and expanded my tiny, closed mind.

And I would guess that you've never seen the joy and excitement that a 20 second clip of a happy, jumping pet brings to children.

You don't hang that on a wall. A frozen photo of your dog sitting on a wall day after day gets pretty boring and monotonous. However, getting together during special occasions and popping a video of your dog on a TV will bring far more excitement and thrills to your family.

SmilerGrogan: Finally, a topic on which I'm actually qualified to comment...
A couple of other tips:
• If the animal seems intimidated by your camera, lay it down near the animal so it can sniff, lick, and paw your camera. This will often calm the animal down.
• With cats, a two-stage process can get you better results. If the cat isn't cooperating or seems fearful, take a time out and shoot another animal or two before returning to the cat. Sometimes cats just need extra time to get used to a new human.

The best way to prepare a cat for a photo shoot is to tie it up securely with lots of rope, or freeze it with liquid helium.

Shamsheed: Photography was the art of telling stories, capturing moments and emotions. Photographers were the journalists of time.

It has become more of a fashion. The new trend is about style.

There is a line that should be drawn for when a photo remains a photo, and when it becomes an artwork. And called as such.

LET THE DEBATE BEGINS....

I will give you a definition of art:

Art is stuff created by sentient beings that serves no other purpose but to evoke some sort of emotion. To beings without emotions, art has no meaning.

As I explained already, it can be whichever you choose. It's up to you.

True, but you could always paint some fake buttons on its body.

The flash is too close to the lens ... I would extend it at least 24 inches higher.

A logical alien robot would define "art" as "Bla-bla-bla doo-dee-doo bla-bla-bla ?!?!?$#$#$".

virtualreality: Too many buttons, when you need a button for not pressing a button.

Don't forget to add some levers and flip switches also ... they very important and look impressive. And throw in an analog meter or two.

Just as a party gag, I'd love to have a camera with 500 buttons and levers.

maxnimo: What on earth is a slide-film look? The last batch of slides I shot was Kodachrome 32 and they looked pretty close to a modern DSLR photo - nice color and detail.

I never said "it can match the dynamic range or colour gamut of any modern DSLR".
I said "pretty close to a modern DSLR photo".

entoman, those slides I took had excellent, natural color, no visible grain, highlights and shadows were just fine, and they were tack sharp because I used a tripod.
Now if you use some cheap 200 ISO slide film, then yes, it will look crappy, but who would want to make their modern images look crappy on purpose, except perhaps a goofy artist.

Bond, any modern DSLR since 2005 with a decent lens can take a very nice photo in good light.
