Twitter, Ai and intelligence are not normally words that I would group together in the same sentence. When we rely on computers to show us what we think might be the most 'eye-catching' part of an image, we are most definitely a pathetic species!

katastrofa: Good, time to clean the world of this sexist trash. Let us hope these pigs never find any work in the industry and die unemployed on the street.

Think of all the nuns abusing children, as in 'Philomena' covering up thier rottenness for decades; it's certainly not only men doing stuff. In fact to me, most of the propositioning the men did was as nothing compared to the sadism of these female perps, aided and abetted by priests and conniving police as well, who have, in the main, avoided capture and trial through the flaccidity of the legal system.

Violent language and uncharitable sentiments, anyway. AFAIK, they've not been found guilty of anything yet; it's all Twitter, Faceache and all the other dross of 21st Century life screaming from the wings. Up until last week, they were considered great photographers; although I've never seen the value in fashion photography and always thought it rather a trivial way to earn a living.

What about updates for the Nex 7 and Nex 6. C'mon Sony get with the program.

Relaxed: We were promised flying cars, and we're getting this BS instead?

Flying cars, but with a driver from the 18th century. What's not to like?

I never got started with any of this rubbish, and find digital imaging a step backwards too.

If we are supposed to think that Global Warming has done that to this bear, then as a species we don't have that long. I didn't watch the video, and I don't know if any other reasons were put forward for the creature looking like that, but it is obviously very ,very ill and the fact that the photographers and clapper board guys and everyone else would just stand about and wring their hands while watching the bear die is grotesque.
All these mealy mouthed people witter on about what they're doing to save the World...but they're the one's flying everywhere, leaving their rubbish at the top of Everest or empty cans wherever this was photographed, then jumping back in the chopper for the next Crusade. Next week comes along and it's forget the bear, get me some peasant women in Haiti, you know, the ones in the colourful dresses with oil drums on their heads. Come on, kids, the chopper's waiting

If I were a Calgary taxpayer I would ask for better use of public money. Or, perhaps, that's the joke...taxpayers always shafted!
In fact these conmen are everywhere stealing money from regular people and it's good that this noodle was found out. Well done, Bisha!

Just because you don't 'give permission' to the camera doesn't mean it won't be there, shooting away whenever it feels like it.
C'mon people, get a bit more paranoid.

tabloid: Nikon is a nostalgia camera, and a bit old school.
New generation a camera buyers don't care about nostalgia.

You're right; nostalgia's not what it was.

instamatic84: Bigger dials... mm-hmm...

Yeah, but they're lighter and faster, with a speed twiddle factored in.

On article Report: Ricoh announcing cost cuts in face of crisis (326 comments in total)

We bought what might have been the last Aficio geljet printer available in the UK!
What a versatile piece of kit and what a shame if that's it for Ricoh.

Najinsky: From the linked story:

"A three-month geological study published in 2013 had concluded that while erosion was inevitable, the structure was not in imminent danger of collapsing.

At the time, geologists had said that the Azure Window was likely to survive for "decades" to come."

Hmmmm, my spidey senses are tingling, something may not be on the level here, and I'm not talking about the collapsed bridge...

Hi,
I'm not quite sure if you're having a go at me about 'experts', but I always think of Alfred Wegener in relation to 'experts'. A man who, for 40 years, had his ideas rubbished by these 'experts' and yet was shown to be absolutely correct!
Today the same aggressive sheep mentality exists in any attempt at a sensible discussion about controversial subjects--- climate change, economics, Trump, Brexit etc etc.

Just goes to show. Never trust an expert.

Global warming I guess. Nonsense of course, there's another one round the corner. And in 40 million years or so there'll be another here. Rocks go to sand, and the sand goes into your sandwiches. Is that why they're called sandwiches?

It's like a combination of FaceOff and Silence of the Lambs with this facial recognition stuff. They'll still steal your phone and take your head as well,
Jeez, all to get to your FaceBook page.

I just like to photograph haystacks, so this is a really neat idea.
