On article Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review (2257 comments in total)

Doesn't really matter to me. I think it is funny as all get out. Of course I have never even looked at a leica past the price tag. So I would not buy one for sure.
Will defiantly make me look at the people that use them a little different now.
Like, look at that guy using a Leica he he he...

On article Nikon to offer D600 replacements if 'spots' continue (175 comments in total)

Kinda par for the course. At least they finally got pressed into doing something. I bought a Pentax K-5 that had a faulty AF module and never got it fixed. Pentax just ripped off thousands of customers.

ovlov: Nikon's quality control isn't even good enough for the Chinese.

I live in Thailand and the Chinese are the beat photographers I have ever seen. These high end buyers not only know the product like the back of there hand they have the money to buy the best. Something I do not see from American tourists here. It has definitely switched to the Chinese. Europeans, Americans, and the rest take a back seet to these guys and gals now.
And I am an American. Very strange to see the power change. But, believe me it already has...

These new cameras are just amazing. Cannot wait for the review.

I'm a minority and Canon doesn't care for sure, but I have started complaining with my wallet. Over one year now with no new Canon products. And I feel I have not lost a thing. Others are filling the gap nicely. No problem for me.

After reading this, I just realized how far behind I am. I don't even own a digital phone.

ffnikclif: I'm speechless.I would like to say I would love this job, but I doubt I'd be good at it. And this is a job you have to be very, very, good at. My hat is off to Mr. Bonner.

My thoughts exactly. Funny how people like different things. I would hate a job like that. And he excels at it.

The sad part is they will be overrun with people wanting to sell a photo.

You know it is not just this kind of photoshop work. It is in all photography now. Honestly it is 40% pic and 60% photoshop. And I am not criticizing. It's lovely work.
I do wildlife photography as a hobby. Do you think most of the pics you see are what came out of the camera? Not by a long shot.

In reply to:

AliRoust: This computer's LCD only displays about 67% of the Adobe RGB color space. And, you can only see 8 bit color!! For this price tag it's simply ridiculous. For those photographers and graphic designers that have worked in a 10 bit color space and have high end monitors ( such as NEC, EIZO, Lacie) displaying 98% of Adobe RGB, this is a major downgrade... By that I mean, going from about 1 billion colors to 16.7 million. All that "Retina" labeling sounds good but definitely doesn't look good...Apple makes no LCD, laptop or computer that can accommodate that!? Yet their prices are up there...
Unfortunately for those of us who have seen 10 bit images, there is no going back.

I just bought a new macbook pro 13 retina. I travel allot. The portability is very nice, to say the least. BUT, I wanted a good calibrated monitor to use with it. I think I made a huge mistake buying it now. Some are using boot camp and installing windows to run there external monitors. It is a terrible shame crime the new laptops do not offer the support for a good monitor.
I am a bit put off. I love the machine, but now I am stuck with boot camp? When window would of done a better job.
After reading this guys article I wen to the mac pro site and all were talking about the port issues and using good external monitors.

On article Integrating the Apple MacBook Air into a pro workflow (346 comments in total)

Strange I just bought my first Apple product. A 13" macbook pro retina. 2.6gz, 8gb, 512gb. Hard for an old man like me to get used to it after 30 years with the pc.
I am a traveling photographer and after viewing the screen of the Air against the pro it was a no brainer.
But, I am looking for a high end travel monitor for editing. You can edit on this one but the real estate is not there.
A light pc notebook would cost the same with the same specs I think.
So far I am happy!

Been threatening to try a small camera for some time now. Fujifilm may be it. Just keep hearing good things about the system.

On article Pentax K-50 real-world and test scene samples (146 comments in total)

There very soft. I think they used a cheap kit lens. Or maybe a faulty unit?
But it sure does not make the Pentax look like a winner, for sure.

On article FroKnowsPhoto's Video Guide on sale (143 comments in total)

I watched one video where he was talking to a class of Photography students. I could not make it threw the video. ( pretty bad )
But, he is young and has evidently made an impact on the extremely hard part of photography ( getting known ). If he keeps it up for the next 20 years he will be a well seasoned top performer and photographer I would think.
Only time will tell. Just stick to your guns man. No problems here at all.

IMO, which means nothing to Nikon for sure. No one likes to be forced into anything. Look at the CC issues. I would also buy the Nikon batteries. But hate to be told or forced to do something.
