That's their story and their sticking to it, we all know the truth is - they use it as a "push" to buy a newer iPhone. Apple is lying about the reason.

shooter45: """DxO didn't take your $150 for the old collection and it has not moral or legal obligation to honor that previous purchase with any form of discount for their new collection. However, as a marketing strategy, it would be wise to consider offering some consideration to existing Nik users since they represent to core to DxO's future success with the Nik product line.

It remains to be seen what will truly be "new" in the DxO update and whether those "improvements" will be worth whatever DxO plans to charge for them.""

You are absolutely right ...

I know they didn't own it then but I missed the cutoff when Google returned everyone's money when they decided to offer NIK for free. If there isn't an upgrade incentive I won't be buying the new product.

Sorin Vacaru: I am using your own camera comparison tool to compare the D7200 against the cameras you state are equal or better (NX-1, a6000, 7DMII). Almost without exception, they are ONLY better in the video category.

Frankly, I personally do not give a .... ..... about video. The only thing that I could wish for in addition to the current features is the 91K sensor and maybe the higher ruggedness of the 7DMII. Otherwise, the D7200 is the perfect crop sensor camera for stills.

I wish video was an add-on accessory, or different model like D7200/D7200V

JWest: For a moment I misread that as "Canon launches $55 flash trigger". I nearly had a heart attack.

Canon or Nikon releasing anything for $55 would tend to give most people a heart attack. If it were to carry their logo it would most likely be $555.00

Wonderful images -- hard to imagine as peaceful as everything seems that in a few short months from when these were taken that World War II would start.

On article Never lose your lens cap again with HACkxTACK (165 comments in total)

I hope you guys make a million and prove me wrong, it seems to me that the initial order ought to come with more than 1 lens cover tab. 5-8 might be more like it. At $5 per additional lens cover tab, let's see that would come to $65 to take care of all my lenses. Price is too high for me. jmho By the way will the tab fit between the Nikon center pinch tabs cause thats right where the Nikon embossed logo is? May have trouble sticking there.

On article CP+ 2013: Interview with Canon's Masaya Maeda (489 comments in total)

Perhaps this is way to test the waters, he knows that there is a strong contingent of Nikon/Canon users waiting for a D300s/7D upgrade. It seems that both Canon and Nikon are dragging there feet in regard to the high-end APS-C follow-on products. Throwing the D600 and the 6D out there prior to the 7D and D300s upgrades may have been part of this testing the market of a FF upgrade path for high-end APS-C bodies. I don't think either cameras made a big enough bite into semi-pro users to give either company a clear indication as to what will happen if they abandon their current semi-pro lines. They also have to consider the investment customers have in EF-S and DX glass, suddenly that market will drop out for the current owners. I do think that the sales of the 2 new FF's was not met with as much gusto as they had anticipated, nor did a sufficient number of 7D/D300s users switch to them. Neither company wants a marketing blunder and each are hoping for the other to make the first move
