No thanks.

In 360-degrees. It'll be like you're actually there.

Mr Sellars: When you see the results projected on a screen, you will see its charm.

I assume you get your processed film back. I think that's kind of the point. But they can also digitize it for you.

Zoran M Krnjajic: Some people should be forbidden to get any camera in their hand ever... How did you manage to bump that beauty so badly already???

It's a prototype. I'm sure it's been bumped around a fair bit.

In reply to:

CaMeRa QuEsT: Ed.: How's the D5600's body slimmed down compared to the D5500's? They both actually have the same exact body. The only difference is the removal of the front and rear IR remote sensors. Everything else, including the deep grip design, is 100% exactly the same.

They're not the exact same body. The D5600 has a lot of the depth removed. It's quite different in the hand.

jimofcan: That tiny, it's gonna be hard/uncomfortable to hold

It's really not, actually. It feels great in the hand.

UneVache: As someone pointed it out, it seems that D5500 and D5600 have exactly the same dimensions. Can't see what's the difference in that comparison :

Can you confirm the grip is deeper ?

What Gary said.

MichaelCourtney: The new Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8 FL isn't among the choices?

It was in the first round of voting but didn't receive a big enough share of the vote to make it into the final poll.

Kaso: Your best shots? Shots as in photos? You should ask your readers about their strongest opinions.

That's a terrible idea!

Manfred Bachmann: The Sony a6500 have to be in this list, because its maybe the best sony camera yet and we have 2016! What will you tell us in 2017, no 6500 because it was an 2016 camera?

It wasn't our voting system, so much as the actual votes. The a6300 and a6500 were in different polls, and the a6500 lost out to other products.

Because not enough of you guys voted for it in the first round of voting!

cantanima bis: "I was, of course, fearful and knew of the danger if the gunman turned toward me."

Honest question: wouldn't the gunman have been glad for he attention? From all I've read, he immediately launched into an anti-Russian screed.

I think it was his act which generated most of the attention. Not his words.

I think you missed the first round of voting, in the previous five polls...

In reply to:

fwellers: Just a note about the categories. Many people (mainly all Vegans) do not consider animals to be things. They should go into the people category, as anyone that has sentience and is interested in their own life, is a person.
If you can't see that, you should t least be able to see that they are not "things" as is a block of wood or a bottle cap.
Please make a distinction in the categories, to reflect respect for animals. And for Vegans.
Thank you,
Floyd

This might be my favorite comment thread of 2016.

cbphoto123: Canon 5d mark IV, Canon M5, Canon 16-35 f2.8L II, Canon 35 f1.4L II, Fuji GFX, Hasselblad X1D...

This poll is the sixth and final poll, of six that we've run over the past few weeks. I think you missed the first round.

"*For the past few weeks we've been running a series of polls to find out what you - our readers - think of the major product releases of 2016*. For the first round of voting we made initial five polls covering lenses, compact cameras and interchangeable lens cameras (ILCs). *Now that those polls have closed, we're pleased to announce the winners.*"

paulski66: Looks like a very sweet lens. Wish there were a Nikon equivalent.

So buy the 14-24mm F2.8.

On article Gear of the Year 2016 - Barney's choice: Nikon D500 (216 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marty4650: Barney.... a really excellent choice.

The D500 may end up being "the ultimate APSC DSLR" packed with the right combination of features, performance and with a very reasonable price. All of the whining over the long delay in upgrading the D300 came to an instant halt with this camera.

It was worth the wait.

The video was supported by Nikon (they sent us gear) and Amazon paid for the shoot. This opinion article is not sponsored. It's just my opinion.

Georgios Liakopoulos: Hello. I think that the maximum number of replies in the people's best photo thread has been reached. Any chance that you start a new thread for people before the 21st? Thank you!

Thanks for the heads-up!
