AlexB73: The deforestation in Amazon :(

Yep, we'll just have to move to that other planet we found... Hang on... we did find another planet to live on, didn't we?

Check out the Spratly Islands and notice how they haven't really changed at all since 1984. Then have a look at them on Google maps and see how they look now. I know the resolution is a lot lower, but really...?

Wow! The "Internet" figured this out. AI has arrived all by itself.
Dang! Solid cloud cover here.

Good, thanks Carey. I'll see what I (we - the SUG - (Sigma User Group)) can do too.

Maybe give them a little nudge...? And if you do get one soon, try to review it for what it is: a very specialised camera with a unique sensor that produces very high IQ at low ISO.

Apparently DPR doesn't think it's a camera. God only knows what they think it is.

On article Nikon reportedly eliminating 1000 jobs in Japan (535 comments in total)

Well ... some one has forgotten how to take a group photo. The forth guy from the right in the back row is obscured except for his left eyebrow (maybe that was done on purpose?). The fella third from the right looks like he's the one who going to do the firing - either that or he'd rather be somewhere else (maybe with another company?). Overall, they look like a cheerful bunch of fellas.

Ya gotta love what they've done with the place. Not a scatter cushion to be seen. But what a view through the bay windows!

Lovely "planetary" energy in this capture. Great atmosphere. Deserved a better ranking.

Nuno Souto: When will the "dslr-only" folks wake up and understand the days of lugging around 15 pounds of equipment to take one photo or make a little video are over and done?

And no, you are NOT a "pro" because you use the same gear as some internet blogger!

Grow up, go outside and smell the flowers, it's really worth it.
Mirrorless is here to stay and is the future.

Thank you so much for letting us DSLR users know the error of our ways. I was lost but now I'm found.

dennis tennis: bah! meh! I still prefer to read Latin etched into marble tablets by monks.

Ah, you had it easy! When I was young we had to scratch our own Latin into soggy cardboard using a broken bicycle pump handle. And we couldn't read what we'd written. And the young kids today...

On article Trippy mirrored timelapse turns Hong Kong upside down (15 comments in total)

Nice to look at and a little surreal, a bit like an upbeat version of Koyaanisqatsi but a little too squeaky clean for me.

On photo Discus fish in the Fish challenge (7 comments in total)

Very strong distortion effects have been applied to this photo. The Discus (Symphysodon aequifasciatus) is quite real but no-one has ever seen one quite like this in a fish tank or in the wild.

Mfritter: I had two Merrills which I ultimately sold because of the shooting ergonomics and lack of a viewfinder and the agonies of Sigma Photo Pro (on my underpowered Windows system). But the IQ was just fantastic and I miss them. Now I have a much more powerful Mac (and can use Iridient). If this thing delivers a more mature shooting envelope, I'll buy it. And the lens. Very excited by the pricing.

I do wonder what happened to the APS-H, which seems to have been stricken from the Sigma web site.

No, the sdQ H is still on Sigma's website: http://www.sigma-global.com/en/cameras/sd-series//

On photo I Thought That I Would Never See... in the Abstract Photo - Landscape challenge (1 comment in total)

Wonderful capture. The starkness of the tree and the square format make this shot.

sportyaccordy: Sigma is going after the highly overlooked Cyclops and tryclops markets with that EVF placement. Good for them.

The EVF is in the same position as the Hasselblad X1D and I don't see either as being a problem.
