People do frame grabs from 4K? Whatever happened to the decisive moment....

christiankoehler: 70-300/4.5-6.3 ??? Do we really need even slower consumer zooms? Come on, 6.3 is for cheap third party travel zooms only. Does the AF even work at 6.3 on an entry level body?
And no, VR does not compensate for any moving subject.

Christian

I'll take one. 6.3 isn't so much of a handicap for general shooting and the outfit will be nice and light.

My one complaint is that the VR version isn't in the twin lens kit. I really wouldn't like to attempt shooting at 300mm without it!

Sounds like a job for the Canon professional service team!

I wonder how long it will be before we have similar articles about the D5?

Hugo808: I was working in a camera shop when these came out. I thought they were appalling rubbish and used to recommend film cameras to all customers but the screen on the back was the selling point, no matter how crap a camera was as soon as they saw the picture come up on the back it was sold. You can't beat novelty.

I recall them being rather expensive too, does anyone know how much?

That sounds about right, and memory was pricey too, all those 32mb CF cards for £100 etc.

It took a long time before I recommended digital (much to my managers annoyance), I decided that I wouldn't consider it until a photo taken with a digicam won the wildlife photographer of the year competition. In those days the exhibition was all 24inch velvia cibachromes, talk about saturation!

Ah the nostalgia...

razadaz: It is presented as the top ten favorite products from the past decade, but appears to be mainly recent products. Most seem to have named their favorite piece of gear at the moment.

Or maybe stuff just keeps getting better?

Typically stunning work for this contest, can't wait to see the exhibition in Greenwich.

Didn't Fuji once market a digital camera as the first "approved by the vegetarian society" due to it not using gelatin in film?

Hugo808: The D750 has a pop-up flash. Most here will laugh at that but I've found them astonishingly useful over the years.

OK, so they do have some other fans. Cool. I'd be disappointed to lose the option for sure.

Hugo808: Nice pics, the only way you could improve them is to lose the signature, very distracting.

If that's your definition of unbelievable I recommend getting out more.

Hugo808: Incredibly awe inspiring images. Can't imagine the work that must have gone into them but being out at night looking at the stars is the best kind of work I should think....

It sure makes me want to get out of town and see a starry sky! Haven't done it for a while...

Hugo808: LOL, I hope this is going to be added to the testing procedures in future.

I'll give you that, I had a go on a Pentax the other day and was well impressed with the build quality. No silent focusing though, what's up with that?
