Wildbegonia: A photo that has a lot of content. Great “americana”.

Thanks. I thought so when I saw the scene and took this. The woman is from Maine. A real character.

It was an iconic picture I ran it in many issues over the years. I’m pretty sure I credited us both, back then, as we never knew who was doing what with cart, cameras, people, fast-moving light, etc. we’d get back to hotels fraggged and be looking for dinner like starved wolves. We were reminiscing last night about how I obsessed about scrubbing cards nightly. He helped me pack some light stands and a boom mic into one of his bags. We hung out in his studio before so left. I miss him dearly already.

sygnus21: Too bad there will be controversy surrounding this submission because I think it an excellent shot and well processed to give a realistic touch to the image. And I absolutely love the colors and the contrast the figure brings to the image. Shame it has to garner controversy instead. And, yeah, it should be remove seeing it's not yours. I do appreciate your honesty though.

Good luck.

Funny as I may have shot it. I texted Jose after I saw the whole question about my integrity, as we just had dinner and I honestly forgot. Remember we have travelled inter island for 10-15 years and worked (golf) as a team. We’d shoot dawn to dusk cards upon cards nobody know who shot what. When I do as recently posting pics for advice on some golf shots on the andscspe forum I got my ass chewed for putting up unedited shots. I was hurt so quickly looooed around for a refresh to my profile. I had once won a contest and saw the behind one and had remembered that flattering side of Maisie. I texted Jose while we were waiting to take off to Denver. He rang back and reminded my of that day and said we were swapping between stills and video as we were taping my show. I remember showing Many sue who to
Hold her golf swing finish because the light was perfect. Was 90% sure I took it too.

I just confirmed with Jose my own suspicion: we both shot that model that day in that very spot with Jose’s camera. As I cannot positively say which of us had pulled the trigger for this exact copy (I have about 20 of these on my hard drive, I yanked it and called myself a bandit! I thought pulled the Fike would automatically remove me from this entry. Apologies to anyone for the inconvenience. Jose and I are both happy to discuss this with any copyright hawks personally should you wish to come out into the world and pursue this further. We are both known entities. PM me for contact info and I will be happy to put you in touch with him myself. Mahalo!

I would like this image removed and any votes to go the the second place entrant. I am not sure this was shot by me. It was most definitely not shot with my camera but with Jose Morale’s, of Kihei, Maui, HI. This is my mistake and I apologize for entering it in error.

On article Nikon D4 overview (837 comments in total)

Glad they've finally come out with something. I guess time will tell just how good it really is, and if it is worth the price. I have been waiting to pounce on a FF Nikon with 1080p* video. I wonder what else they have up their sleeve for 2012?

On article Nikon 1 System First Impressions (247 comments in total)

Pity we all waited so long for Nikon to poop out on us. Like I want to buy a whole new system and glass. I've got everything they make worth a hoot. Why can't I expect a mirrorless system that wows me and can kick Sony's ass and work in concert with what I already own? Why do I have to even consider buying an NEX just to have a large-sensor mirrorless and to boot, have to get their crummy E-mount lenses? I WANT A MIRRORLESS NIKON THAT KICKS SOME ASS. And, for $900 or so dollars, even the soccer moms out there expect something that will rock their worlds. This won't do it. Totally bummed. Bummmmmmmed!!!

On article Why make a small-sensor mirrorless camera? (271 comments in total)
In reply to:

djsphynx: First sentence seems to be missing something... roughly what?

A mirrorless camera that can be used as "B,C or D" cameras interchangeably when video is needed, such as indy filmmaking or weddings, etc., is handy. Having to invest in multiple lens systems bites for that type of buyer (me). And adapter that really works will be great, but will footage intercut well? Now, in terms of the niche where consumers buy these smaller sensor cameras. Market perception of Nikon being what the 'pros' use can influence a consumer, like by sister-in-law, etc. Making a min-pro-quality small camera is good, but making an expensive and not-so-impressive device like these in a market flooded by the same isn't going to help Nikon's cause. I'd never buy an older small Nikon camera, and now I guess I'll stick with Sony for them in the future.
