Stompie: Im not convinced. Its a bit meh for me. Theres no doubt this is some pretty cool tech, but is it just that? Cool tech.
For me personally capturing images is an immersive experience. No not exclusively but mostly. If i go out to take a picture and I pack my camera bag and head out to a location, I have made the effort, done research and am excited about capturing that perfect image.
I will NEVER get that same immersion from the L16. Yes it will appeal to wealthy soccer moms who want to spend the money on a light, portable camera that could capture DSLR quality pics and yes maybe to photojournalists who are on location in the middle of a hot zone who can whip this out of their pocket instead of a (by comparison) bulky DSLR to take an image of something thats taking place 10 meters in front of them.
In my opinion, L16 is not going to do anything to the DSLR market, if anything its competing with the point n shoot market.
It could make an effective and interesting addition to a kit

lol. And what part of your empty comment has anything to do with the L16 possibly giving me a deflated and flat capturing experience. Be gone with you.

Great shot mate. I enjoyed searching for the reflection point across the image. I think the title is fitting for the picture. Certainly Invokes thought.

On article Canon releases promised Firmware v2.0.0 for EOS 7D (104 comments in total)

As a 7D owner, i am looking foward to this update. I am an enthusiast photographer and my budget will not allow me to buy a new camera that is better than the 7D. Well done to Canon for making the effort to keep their customers of its top of the line crop camera happy. Full frame lovers got the 5DIII and we got the firmware update. Im gratefull, as im sure many other 7D owners are too. If im going to upgrade from the 7D in the future, it will be to FF, so for now i believe i am getting the best Canon can offer for this camera, and any other in its class. I cant wait to use the upgrades in the field.
