Impressive! Love those images that help to understand what these people have to endure to make their living.

On article Should I buy a Canon EOS 6D Mark II? (447 comments in total)

Canon finally got AF right but that's not enough if DR is still the same as on the 6D.
Why get a full fame DSLR and big and heavy lenses if a mirror less with APS-C gives better IQ at base ISO?

If your company is getting 100 years old there is nothing wrong in being proud of that and looking back.
But if Nikon wants to play an important role in the future they should also use this anniversary to release a new product or even better a new product line. How about a big sensor mirrorless camera on a 2017 poster?

I wonder why Panasonic has not implemented that in the first place. Manufacturers are such morons. ;)

Sounds like a poor porn plot. I have to correct myself: Sound like an average porn plot.

Bombastic: Can these Gitzos take a photo? Maybe I'm missing something.

Lensmate: They need a 'real judge' category becos many of the prize winning shots are disappointingly average! That twin shot [above] with one kid getting 'skewered' with a pole through his head and out the other end is another soccer mom shot that is on the same level as a poorly done selfie.

I think it is a great shot. A picture that tells a story and triggers emotion. Of course it can't compete with all the excellent tulip and cat shots here.

On article Throwback Thursday: Minolta DiMAGE X (134 comments in total)

The only camera ever that I bought and returned the next day. I liked the compact form but image quality was really poor. But of course I did not learn and bought a Sony Cybershot T3 about 2 years later. There is a reason why this lens technology has not survived.

I have spent my last four vacations (each three weeks long) in the USA. Now I start to worry that Austria might be banned too because there is no way to deny that Austrians are the most dangerous people on the planet. We started both world wars.

No thanks. I prefer my pouches made from baby panda.

Looks interesting. I like the effect.

Roughly 3 weeks too early.

True sad news. My first SLR I bought from my own money was a Nikon F801. My first digital camera was a Nikon Coolpix 950. My first DSLR was a Nikon D1.
Now I shoot Fuji but I really wanted that DL 18-50. I hope they recover. It would be a horrible loss for the whole industry.

What is that? Pimp my ThinkTank bag day?
I love my ThinkTank Retrospective 5 because it is so discreet. This thing is as discreet as a pink Bentley Bentayga.

My first digital camera. Loved it. I would recommend this camera to all the people who complain about todays cameras.

On article Throwback Thursday: Fujifilm X100 (174 comments in total)

Loved it but sold it after I got the X Pro-1. I always wanted a black version. Now I consider to get the X100F but I'm not so sure about the colour anymore.

The Flat Iron image is the real winner for me. Fantastic shot!

I can not believe that I just watched this. It seems that I have too much time to kill too.
