Real world "camera design" feedback provider to camera "lab designers" who never get out to see the real world.
"disqualified after reaching the penultimate round, due to digital manipulations of some sort being discovered"
Well, they have to really define this "some sort" fellow.
"some sort" is making quite a stir of some sort to this sort of thing.
Hope they all sort it all out, in some sort of way.
JonB1975: I normally stay out of these and keep my opinion to myself.... but... no.8??? Really??? there must have been a dearth of entries......
That is what is great about this particular competition.
Anybody can win.
I have a friend who has a very big problem.
He has just invented a flying skateboard, making users fly like the Silver Surfer™.
His greatest hurdle is regulation.
So he just uses it to hover across the North Pole... undetected.
Santa wants to buy some, but declined when told about the regulation potentials...
The winning images are the reflection of the minds of the judges.
When you have to criticize... remember it is the judges fault.
The categories are not even "gardens"... well, except when they consider the whole Earth as a garden... then it truly reflects the wide open space of the minds of the judges... empty space.
Adobe keeps on being the leading edge because of constant innovations and the ability to allow third party software to enhance it's capabilities via plug ins.
(you can't touch this... dum, the-dum, dum-dum)
"Impressive..." (tshh...pheow... tshh... pheow)
Yes, that's the way to go:
So many models in the line up that, soon, their RRP increments will amount to $100 from one step ladder to another.
Then regret creeps in after seeing colleagues brandishing a higher priced ladder rung, and pretty soon... a collection of motley crew cameras that are essentially the same banana.
Marketing Hypnosis 101.
Soylent Green is....
The aperture assembly in the middle of both groups looks so frail!
I could imagine how an IS assembly would look like... in real life cross section.
Sadly, Canon is lukewarm to inventing a killer mirrorless gadget thinking it will be a shotgun that would would blow one of their legs off.
Canon loyal flock are happy with their genre, and NOT changing ship.
Canon haters are happy (and laughing) at this mediocre offering.
Canon is in a "no win- no win" situation on this.
The "Not-Coming-To-The-Party-Of-Great-Innovative-Mirrorless-Cameras" camera by Canon.
Cover all bases.
Let nothing escape.
Take no prisoners.
Pentax comes out with a full frame promise 14 years after the announcement.
Pentax users have an amazingly great patience.
Readers will always be... just readers.
nikonson: I think both of Nike photo and Rentmeester photo are fake. I remember that Michael Jordan always stuck his tongue out when he made jump shots.
Isn't THAT his tongue sticking out and licking the ball like a frog?
My bad! I thought it was his licker all along!
That then, is NOT Michael...
Two parties were involved.
Ideas were exchanged.
The big guy took it further based on the original idea.
Its a line ball.
Player 1 calls a challenge.
Hawk Eye™ lawyers please come forward.
Nikon is a good company with good products.
Hopefully, there won't be a time when they have to explain why they disappeared from the planet, entirely.
When consumers (not professionals) consider SIZE as a major factor: MIRRORLESS will kick in.
Oops! It already has!
PROS: big and bulky
CONSUMERS: small, comfortable, and wise. (smart too)
A camera these days are made up of components that have been manufactured, molded, welded, partially assembled, glued together, etc. etc., so that a typical camera (it they are to tell the truth) would have details similar to your cereal box:
This camera and its components manufactured in:Japan 5%China 44%Thailand 25%Indonesia 15%India 4%Sri Lanka 3%Philippines 2%Vietnam 1%Singapore 1%
NOTE: THE LABEL ON THE BOTTOM OF THE CAMERA SAYING "MADE IN JAPAN" IS 100% MADE IN JAPAN and constitutes 0.001% of the camera component and not included in the tally above.
Canon just wants to shift those percentages. That's all.
The moment a photography enthusiast removes the concept of "upgrade" in his/her mind... the more enjoyable that photography enthusiast and hobbyist's picture taking would be.
Upgrade spreads the curse of inadequacy, a useful tool of marketing.
