I used PS 6 for a long time and went to Elements after they went to the Cloud. I love it. For simple processing like I do it is a gem IMO.

garyknrd: Nice pics, I think I am going to spend next summer there, for some birding.

3rd world country's around the world have scenes like this daily papa natas. I travel allot and actively seek out dump sites for birds. My last trip threw Mexico was heart breaking. I always take in cases of water and what ever else I can think of and can afford. Or help out the local agencies in the area helping these folks out. Nothern Cambodia was my last effort .

I love this kind of photography. The thrill of being there, and photographing this kind of stuff must of been awesome.

garyknrd: I looked at his website and went to his workshop page.
One of the trips was around 10K without airfare. For 9 days double occupancy.
My question is who is the target for these trips? There must be an advantage to going on a trip like this rather than going on your own. What is it?

The internet makes tour guiding a thing of the past IMO. Income or no income. I have never been to a place where with a little search I could not find a top notch local guide.
I am sure these tours are first class. In every place I have ever traveled too most all the tours like this hire local tour guides to guide the way.
Personally I don't think money has much to do with it these days. The savvy photographer knows the ropes. The rest go on expensive tours..

Good to hear. I put off buying the Sigma due to non weather sealing. This just might be my next lens. Waiting for the review and pics..

I read this same article months ago? Been going around since DSLR's starting tanking.

I would like to have that lens!

Day late and a dollar short IMO.

I'm getting to where this is the only site I visit for my photography fix. It gives me an idea of the direction I want to go in ( as far as photography goes ). Without the nonsense of corporate, and corporate sponsored sites. As well as the strictly click me sites that give me absolutely NOTHING!
Keep up the good work. Kudo's big time.

Great news.
I can not wait until the new 300mm lens is rolled out. When it hits I am all over the latest Olympus body and the new pro lenses.
Just a waiting game for me at this point. I am hoping Olympus will deliver.

In reply to:

garyknrd: 10 to1 it is a combination of making a very good living with Canon Rumors, and not having to put up with employee's and all the other head aches in retail business.
Being an internet tool pusher is much easier. Let someone else handle the shipping and hardware end of it.
I doubt shipping was the root cause of this decision.
Does B&H ship to Canada? I see all kinds of e-bay folks ship
ing from Canada! Does Amazon ship to Canada?

Canada post has been in the toilet for years?

Internet lens rental can be conducted anywhere. Does not have to be in just Canada? If profitable elsewhere, very easy to move the business. I know people that own retail businesses in other countries. No big deal.

Exchange the word "root cause" with "excuse" and I might buy it.

Just my opinion, but I do not buy the postal excuse for a minute.

IMO other irons in the fire that were more interesting, and much less a head ache.

On article Flickr brings back Pro account option (74 comments in total)
In reply to:

Porsupah: As an existing Flickr Pro subscriber, having read that press release, I was wondering what they'd said of relevance to me. Then it occurred to me - they were proudly announcing the price would remain the same for two years.

Quietly, Pro has gone from $25/year (or $45/two years) to $50/year.

The copywriter is to be commended, given nobody's pointed that out, including the DPR staff.

Yea, in the same boat as you... Seems like we are fixing to see a 100% price increase in two years... That sucks.
Thanks for nothing Flickr.

With the other offerings available. The price of this camera seems very expensive.
