On article Pelican lightens up with Air cases (53 comments in total)

Also good news that I bet a lot of older heavier used ones will come on the market from folks buying these.

Chuck Yadmark: The Carry-On appears to be not quite as wide or tall as it could be. I don't understand that part.

The website lists internal dimensions at first glance. So the carry-on is indeed 22x14x9 inches.

gskolenda: They are way over priced! They need some stiff competition.

there is some competition from Nunuk and SK, but it doesn't seem to do that much. Having said that, I got the SK competitor for 80 dollars and it works very well.

Calvin Chann: It's overhead compartment friendly until they see the case and demand to weigh it, at which time you'll be politely requested to check it in.

That's why I do a little acting job to make it seem very light when I lift it up.

On article Nikon's New D5 and D500 Push the Boundaries of DSLR (737 comments in total)
In reply to:

arhmatic: I know most of you think this is nonsense, but if they would only try to push the boundaries of styling a little more, they would have my money. The "feel" of a DSRL is essentially the same since the D1. Style matters, regardless of industry or purpose.

Hundreds of people, thousands of posts for 7 years have been complaining about no D300 follow up. I have never seen a complaint about aesthetics until right now.

TheGreatfulBread: It's an F Mount? Not DX?

All DX lenses are F mount.

Chuck Yadmark: The division between those who just don't get it, which is a lot, and for those tha t this camera is the second coming, which is a lot., cracks me up.

Name one other Nikon camera that puts or will put 20mp on a DX sized crop at 10fps with top-of-the-line Autofocus, and with ISO 51000. Hint: None, not a D4s, not the 7200, not the D750, not the new D5.

If these features are esoteric to you, then the camera isn't for you.

I and others LIVE at the limit of the cameras specs every time we shoot our stuff, and for this it is priceless.

If they did this every 2 years you might have a point. But it's been 7, and maybe 9 if you don't count the 300s as a proper effort.

richard cohen: A couple of mixed signals so far...dpr says no to onboard flash, nikon site says yes. Dpr and nikon site say 1 xqd and 1 sd slot, other sites say 2 sd slots...Personally i hope for no xqd but yes on onboard flash...

I have a d810 and d750 now, and while I have never fully bought off on the 'extra reach' of a dx sensor since it really is only a narrower fov, at the same time the speed and agility and new af system of the d500 might make it a perfect wildlife camera..if the iq and low light performance are up to snuff. We'll see, but this is clearly a big deal release for nikon.

I have taped my pop up flashes shut since the beginning.

Craig NC: Really, $2000 for the body and its only APSC?

For those who need what the camera brings, it's a bargain. On paper, of course.

In reply to:

Soggoth: $2000 looks a bit steep for DX camera

To you, maybe, but then maybe it's not for you. This is me all the way and I would have paid a thousand more for a camera with these features, which I want/need every single one.

I'm glad. I have taped mine shut from the day I get the camera.

Well the 200-500 came in at an astonishingly low price, so I'm hopeful

But perhaps now finally I can afford to buy a used D3s?

I know one mine is likely to be going on sale

at 4000 it won't. I'd prefer it be real close or under 2000, but would accept 2500

Love my 12-24 Tokina as a walk-around. 12-36 f4 would be my dream walk around.
