cosinaphile: i hope they will keep the lowepro quality and design mindset

but I am pessimistic as manfrotto can churn out some junk .... it was once a venerable firm with self-respect .... let's hope they can turn it around is great ways like sigma did

once about 15- 20 yrs ago I asked a salesman friend why cameraland [lexington av in nyc] didn't carry a sigma lens i wanted to see

"we don't carry any sigma lenses only tokina and tamron lenses if yuo want non manufacturer stuff .. sigma makes junk .."[paraphrased}

id say things can sometimes change for the better....

@sirhawkeye64 I've debadged my two Lowepro bags. Both of them had rubberized Lowepro badges that came right off when I took a knife to the thread that was holding them on.

On article 'No Future in Photojournalism' Interview: Dan Chung (266 comments in total)
In reply to:

Alex Notpro: Comparing videos to photos is like comparing phone calls to emails. They are not interchangeable. Videos and phone calls are for people who are not very busy. Perhaps high unemployment has caused a momentary spike in the popularity of video?

No kidding. But in the context of the article, newspapers are dying and moving to the "web". These sites would rather pay for VIDEO, not stills. So yeah, there's no comparing the two technically, other than the fact that if Dan Chung refused to shoot video and only shot stills, he couldn't make a living of it in a few years. That's the point. It's especially poignant coming from an award winning still photo-journalist.
