arbux: A summary of comments after reading last 100:
-98 from sony fanboys that never have af issues with sony camera, especially with dynamic shots in dark venues with stopped down lenses.
-2 from pros that experiences such difficulty, but then fanboys say they need to use a9 ( none of then has it but there is that youtube video with slides from northrup)

and one from somebody with lots of time to spare.

massimogori: What about simply forbidding wasteful wedding ceremonies and most obnoxious wedding photography?

Indeed, cricnours. And, Julian, thanks god I still have good memory. I can remember the day, the ceremony and the name of the bride.

This is a major departure from their policy. Previously, they never cared about any kind of peak performance and consistently ensured sluggish operation.

At least, a sensor for next century's view cameras! Now a proper TTL magnesium flash!

This is unfair to European Clients. We want to get the price upgraded products in Europe as well.

massimogori: The cynical summary:
- 27k parked temporarily and then recovered
- three free passes on dpreview and God knows on how many other websites worldwide
- total cost of the operation in the range of 3-6k, nothing as compared with the market value of the same advertising coverage.

Thanks for your passion, quiquae! You made my day!

massimogori: Bought in June. I am getting six months of usage for my money.

Hope they can spend it in healthcare.

Has any of you noticed that by end of year they are not going to add any more camera?

Hunting drones is way more sustainable than hunting birds.

Easily swappable cartridges for the mirror oil sprayers and another cartridge to recover and recycle the drained oil.

massimogori: Barney, please be careful with daring comparisons that may force us to gauge the rest of your writings. For your information, there are physical and mathematical reasons why a very good vinyl system is superior to CD. In simple words, in digital there is no signal beneath noise floor, in analog there is an entire world and there are vinyl pickups that exceed 100 db signal to noise ratio. And no, if you have the right pickup, to earn and turntable, you will not hear clicks and pops.

Next time, please compare an outrageously expensive camera with an outrageously expensive turntable.

Gottfried, I am aware of techniques that allow digital recordings to show signals beneath the noise floor. Unfortunately they are far to be mainstream: cd originated as a sad attempt to recover money spent on the '70s for video disk and quality was clearly not the main issue.
Re to S/N ratio, please check out some top of the range Clearaudio cartridges.
You are right that vynil from difgital masters inherently share the limitation of most digital recordings geared at CD. Those masters that utilise the exotic technologies you mentioned before, however, shine on vinyl (because of lesser limitations on the music reproduction side, because the technologies you mentioned are not available in mainstream home music reproduction systems.).
Besides, there are plenty of records made starting from analogue recordings.

Amazingly flexible and this is just the start. Wait till Apple removes also the number keys.

Food for thought for all the people who quickly defined the Nikon 1 series as crap.
