luisflorit: Mmmm... Strange. Who filmed this? Maybe it was just propaganda?

He did install a camera to document his stunt ... Well, he fell

Dave Andrade: Forgive me for sounding sarcastic, but.......this is news? Android has been doing this for years....you give a camera app permission to use your camera. The wording makes it sound like they can just use it randomly to spy, but it just means you are giving the app the ability to take photos, which almost sounds counter-intuitive ("hey youre a camera app!! shoot something!") but its not. Is this a new thing with ios? I swear sometimes that Apple makes people believe there isnt a world outside of Apple. For example, I saw a Twitter post one day say if they're iPhone acted up one more time, they were going back to a rotary phone....to which I replied "there are these other phones called Android....."

Aren't Android systems doing the same ?

In the end, it all comes to a personal choice, I will not go back to a PC, the interface drives me nuts, the constant crashes of the OS on Windows is just enough for me to look the other way.

I have a Nikon D1X that has 895,000 clicks on the same original shutter. I haven't use that camera in a while but I take it out sometimes.if I remember correctly the skimmer was supposed to last 175,000 clicks.I guess I have been lucky

In reply to:

SimenO1: Tony Northrup would totally ignore lenses like this, and if asked, he just claim its totally useless and contradictory to use on a digital camera since its not made in the digital age. You know, because good image quality are a very new phenomenon. *Rolling eyes*

TN is a jerk with a very pretty wife to help attract more clics ...

It is outragously expensive for a 300mm F4 lens. I don't care that it acts as a 600mm on any camera with a 4/3 sensor. Olympus is stealing its base Customers IMHO.

In Canada it will retail for 3200$, are U kidding me ...

ShelNf: It's going to interesting in the future if/when CS6 doesn't support the latest cameras. Something will have to give...

Then, Adobe will become even more pirated and will eventually become a lot less profitable.

20Gb of storing space, gimee a freaking break, I do that in TIFF every 3 days.

EmmanuelStarchild: Not a good value, IMO. The Canon lens w/collar is $400 cheaper and has comparable optics.

I recommend you go do your math again, in Canada, it is about 130$ both w/o tripod collar
