I have a hard time garnering any sympathy for people who lose their lives this way. What other outcome is there if you continually tempt fate and break the law while doing so?

She should be pressing charges.

Way way way overpriced. Lots of great used Nikon bodies out there for much less. I’ll keep using mine and skip this camera. Since the hasselblad debacle I get ill at the sight of wooden grips anyway.

Looks pretty good to me. Use this phone with an app like filmic and you can get even better results. The 4K from my 7+ is nice too. Lot of bitter people in these comments.

If this Sigma is as good as the their 30mm 1.4 and 60mm 2.8 E mount then I will be getting it. I own both those lenses and they are outstanding on my Sony Nex camera. Not sure I would bother with the m4/3 mount version.

Still using my Nikon D300 with a handful of nice lenses. I'm happy.

I lost my father to cancer. It took a year for him to die. It was horrible. My father didn't want his photo taken, he didn't want anyone to see him that way. Great work from Jared. Powerful photos and a wonderful gift for Arty's family and friends to remember him. I love this type of photography.

I've had a Surface Pro 4 for about a year now. Love mine to death. No issues so far and it gets heavy use, work and personal. Couldn't see myself going back to a bulky laptop. If this dies I'll get another.

I'm not sure how this replaces or improves upon my Epson V500, which I am happy with for the most part.

On article Analog gems: 10 excellent, affordable film cameras (819 comments in total)

The Olympus mju ii has gotten ridiculously expensive now. I have two of them and they are terrific cameras. Really a gem of a camera but now overpriced. The negatives I get from my Nikon FE always look stellar, so I would also put that camera on the list.

Glad they are adding lenses to the system but I can't afford either one of these lenses. Oh well.

My first DSLR was the D50. I still have it and it works fine. It still takes nice images and I use it for fun every now and then. 6mp is plenty.

Paul Hodgson: Good news for him I just hope his communication style, as per his blog, doesn't hit Hassy. On a very personal level I want communications to have depth but brevity, Thien's blog always felt like reading a thesis and listening to someone who liked the sound of their own voice. I stopped following.

I have a very similar opinion of Thien, his blog anyway. I stopped reading when he reviewed one particular camera, I really forget which one, and proclaimed that it was a fine camera, one which would make 99% of photographers very happy. Then he went on to proclaim he was in that upper 1% of photogs who needed more. This would have been right around the time he introduced his "ultraprints". I had a good chuckle and haven't been to his blog since. Good luck to him and Hassy, but I doubt very much they are making any sort of comeback.

On article Nikon D5600 sample gallery (163 comments in total)

Very nice image quality and colours. High ISO seems fine. My only problem with these Nikons are the poor viewfinders, lack of focus motor, and lack of flash commander. I have to step up to the 7000 series to get these features so that's what I've done, but I do like the size and performance of the 5000 series cameras.

Been looking at some super 8 films over on thanks LOL. This isn't something that should be making a comeback. What's next, 8 track players for our cars? Film is awesome and I still shoot it along with digital. Glad that 35mm Ektachrome is back, I'll be buying some. Super 8? Not so much.

#5 is quite nice. Most of these are good or very good but I still see people are quite fond of the clarity slider in PS. I hope 2017 brings an end to that trend.

Robemo: Oops. I was being optimistic in my last post. Price for a body is even € 1699 here in Europe (= $ 1890). I guess I have to keep my old gear ....

Yes Canadian camera prices are sickening. Even on the used market. I don't understand how Canadian retailers like Henrys are still in business. Pricing is outrageous.

On article Throwback Thursday: Nikon D40 (176 comments in total)

Nothing wrong with those sample photos at all, they hold up well to scrutiny in 2016. High ISO isn't much of an option with the D40, obviously, but the camera is still quite capable all these years later. Same with my D50. It is limited to 1600 ISO but has a focus motor and can use many Nikon lenses, not just the DX ones. It still takes great photos and I still use it from time to time.

Wonderful camera and I may well upgrade from my M1 which is still going strong after heavy use the last couple of years. I am wondering about pricing though. Camera prices are just stupid here in Canada. Currently the M4 sells for $1249, the M3 for a little over $1000. The M5 is listed for pre-order at $1249, same as the M4. What gives? Is pricing of the older cameas going to be adjusted?
