It's funny because the dog's name is Barney.

I wonder if Nikon will continue to produce the VRII for a while to come yet... f

Well I shouldn't be surprised by the announcement. I just bought the "old" VR2 version brand new. *sigh*. You guys have me to thank for this new version, because every time I invest in photo equipment the new model is released shortly after.

rfsIII: This is one of the most beautiful galleries i've seen lately; it always puzzles me why more people don't get into microscope photography. The possibilities are limitless.

Maybe because microscope photography is mostly an "abstract" genre, which doesn't attract a large swath of photographers. In my opinion anyway.

TheDman: Any time Adobe is in the news I come straight to the comments here to watch all the teeth gnashing over three subscription. Can't believe this is still going on years later.

If I spent $1000 today for the suite and died tomorrow my estate would be out $1000. OTOH, $1000 invested properly will recoup $120/year quite smartly thank-you. :)

if it weren't for the $10 subscription I would never have used PS. I'm not a heavy user, but it's a creative tool that I'm glad I added. 5 cups of coffee/month?? C'mon it's a no brainer.

1-gallon plastic milk jug, tin foil, duct tape, cheese cloth. Done.

On photo Lake Kilstivatnet in the Boats X2 challenge (10 comments in total)

Beautiful composition. Too bad about the exposure though. It would look better as one exposure with some curve adjustments and just let the sky go. Unless there is something very special about a sky it looks better to accept it's brightness or omit it from the composition. We've become obsessed with skies. This sky ruins the shot.

EthanP99: Would this camera be good for a beginner? Were looking to shoot auto, and the trade up deal sounds good, price is reasonable too.

Trade up later for the "Selfie-I". flip around screen and chest mounted selfie boom included.

Prairie Pal: Any old excuse will do for Nikon these days whether or not it's accurate.

I can't sympathize with companies that put all their eggs in one basket and then sets that basket down in an area plagued by natural disaster.

straylightrun: Why does it look so cheap for $250? I first thought it was some $30 budget model.

I was thinking it should look cheap from the outside to fly under the thieves' radar.

Potemkin_Photo: disgraceful. nikon needs to make this cam 1/2 price now.

In a way it sounds like you're satirizing previous knee-jerk replies. ;)

Made to match Tilly Hats and khaki hiking shorts, this is what every decent hipster will be slinging over their shoulder this summer. All that's missing is the whistle on a draw string to warn the bears that there's meat coming around the bend.

Howard: This thing is big!

That is my first reaction too. On the other hand it looks to be designed as an industrial strength workhorse unencumbered by "retro style" silliness.

muratime: pls for God sake, next time order a small glass of of beer. As if beer is main subject on the table.. i know big glass is cheaper per unit, but please man, this is video, not a drinking party.. :P

I liked the part where they clinked their near full glasses right over top of the camera.

Screw Nikon, I've been looking for a jumping in point to Fuji and this looks like it. I like Fuji's attitude and the warm feeling of using their hardware!
