ZurichPhoto: $3.2MM is nothing. It's just "make it go away money." It would have cost at least that much in lawyers and bad press. If the Feds really had a strong case here they would have pressed harder and/or for more money. But they need to put a pelt on the wall. The Dept. of Labor is so small it can not enforce its standards broadly. It has to do showy, high-visibility cases as a deterrent. You can find "something" in any commercial enterprise when it hits a certain size that can be litigated. Whether you think that's a good thing or not depends on your perspective. Who knows if there were systematic violations. Shame on them if there were.

This is the fourth time. Might just be a pattern?

tinternaut: I predict this will upset a lot of angry white men.

I'll give you about 2 cents for all the men in the world.

On article Canon EOS Rebel SL2 sample gallery (228 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ben Herrmann: Although certainly not a beginner by any stretch of the imagination, I still intend on eventually getting an SL2 down the road. An acquaintance got one (ordered it from Japan via eBay). He's no beginner either and the IQ he's getting from the SL2 is stunning. He talks about how comfortable it is to shoot with this camera and he finds himself reaching for it more often than not.

I'm personally not impressed with the images shown on this user's review, but then many times the random images shot here can be....well, "different." Some can be so unusual at times that one can wonder when they'll start shooting turds laying on a road next - sigh....

Seeing what this SL2 is capable of (the guy referenced above uses the 18-135 on his) in the right hands, I think Canon have a hit on their hands with this one. It's funny in that although many of us shoot with advanced cameras, some of the best IQ I've seen, IMO, were captured with more entry-level camera models. Now go figure...

"Davinator: maybe you could post what you consider stunning?"
That will never happen :^)

It's open season on women in the Trump era. Good thing some institutions still care.

That gel hairdo might be a fire hazard as well.

The buildings in the New York pic are racked in several spots, including the ESB. Someone needs to take another look at it.

MrALLCAPS: 6D is selling? I sold my 6DmkI and went Fujifilm. I had hopes for the mkII, but that just solidified staying with Fuji. Don't hate to say it, but Canikon cameras are the Dinosaurs and the uninformed just get in line and get fed their outdated cameras...

Yeah that X-E2 is just the best camera evur!

whawha: How on earth can a car be "intense"?

If you're a 14 year old male, it would be intense.

In reply to:

SaltLakeGuy: I'm actually going to enjoy watching Sony finally kick Nikon and Canon to and under the curb for once and for all. No real innovation and now not even delivery of their product. How pathetic can you get.

Pathetic would be Sony fanboy trolling.

In reply to:

Slapstick Noir: 6DmkII is already delayed - by 5 years. What's new?!
No one would notice. 95% of Canon users are conditioned to buy outdated crap.
So the "high demand" could very much be a real thing.

These comment sections always attract the yahoos.

Fuji? No thanks. I'll stick with my D500 and my D810.

Marcin 3M: 11. No dust on sensor,
12. No oil on sensor,
13. No "left af syndrome" on any points,
14. No peel-off rubber,

Must be tough for you to make a decent picture :^)

Satire for sure, yet we have five or six persistent posters in the Nikon lens forum who fervently believe this nonsense and have the lousy pictures to back it up.

In reply to:

mosswings: Funny. Perhaps overlong, but this reminds me of the debunking that audio cable manufacturers justifiably suffered in the 90s and Aughts. Monster Cable's "transmission line" speaker cables were ludicrous on the face of it. Oxygen-free cabling had some merit, but most of it was BS.

What disturbs me more is how worked up people can get about a bit of satire.

Better believe speaker wire makes a difference. If you can't hear the difference, that's okay too. A lot of people can't.

It's good to be a Nikon shooter :^)

In reply to:

Souciantmag: Nine out of ten professional photographers use Macs for editing and processing. This had been the case for over two decades. Apple has made some mistakes with their ports recently but that's not a platform switch incentive. Windows is still a dog of an OS and most creative pros ignore it because of the menu system and clunky user interface.

Rubbish.
