mailman88: What's a pro sports photographer?...Is it the gear or the photographer?
Well, someone classified me as a pro, because I had a white lens (100-400mmIS) on my 50D at a Florida Marlin baseball game....and refused entry to the ballpark.
Found out it's a Florida Marlin Stadium rule, not major league baseball.
Of course I let Marlin management know my feelings, and refused to go to anymore games until they changed their camera lens restrictions.

Did go to one Marlin game with my 7D, 200mm 2.8 and my 1.4x extender....but it's not the same as my 100-400mmIS.

In reply to:

munro harrap: 16:9 is vital. However it requires better sensors with 16mp plus to avoid noise. Even a G4 LG is noisy, and ceryainly this 950 does not improve upon it, so O tend to use an 808 for low noise and high resolution even over a D800 in circumstances where I need max depth of field , and have got to really enjoy what 16:9 can do.I'd wait till Nokia arrive with the nextgenhiresolution

Shoot DNG, problem solved. I shoot in any light with no problem

I own a flagship cellphone called the 950XL.

Maybe the Kodak, but I will add the Canon 300D instead of the Polaroid.
The 300D kicked started the digital era.

Peiasdf: I still remember reading reviews when Canon leads everyone in high-ISO performance and JPEG engine refinement. Then D90 came along.

....and I still bought a Canon

mailman88: All cropped P/S cameras will be obsolete in 5 years or less ( blame cellphones)
Then enter the full frame P/S camera market from all manufactures at a very affordable price.

I truly believe that full frame P/S cameras will control the market.
The technology will make full frame P/S cameras very affordable.
Off set prices by megapixel size in the full frame P/S
Let's say: full frame at 12mp cost $800.
Full frame at 16mp cost $1200
Full frame at 18mp at $1600

Joed700: Did Nikon sponsor all the photo equipment for NASA? It seems like NASA's been using Nikon equipment since Nikon F3....

Nikon is one of many global companies getting tax breaks from the U.S. Government

And I thought NASA was using Kodak cameras.
