On Chicago-based Calumet Photographic closes U.S. stores article (195 comments in total)

Sad to hear this news. They employees at the Oak Brook IL store was awesome. Very helpful, friendly and always went out of the way to help. Their paper backdrops were great and their Monolights were great as well. Wish I bought another one.

Saw a post in here about arrogance at smaller stores. Found the same thing as well. I have a local store in Glen Ellyn IL that will remain nameless (Starts with a P, ends with a "J's" and no letters in between) that had the worst customer service I have ever seen in a photo shop or other business for that matter. They would rip Canon users for not buying Nikon and always talked down to people. Every employee was an a** basically. I would listen to them talk to customers and just laughed. Talking down to people was their expertise. Their prices were ridiculous as well.

On Canon releases promised Firmware v2.0.0 for EOS 7D article (104 comments in total)
In reply to:

CameraLabTester: Wondering how the resale value of the 7D will be affected.

An aging camera just got a massive adrenalin shot.

So from now on... brand new 7D buyers should check for version V2.0.0 before purchase.


At another site that has a huge buy and sell, prices are slightly higher. I have been checking.

In reply to:

D200_4me: Somehow I think the pros who make a descent living from their photography will not find the D4's ISO capabilities a hindrance to their ability to deliver pro results. A lot of people on here just need to go out and start making photos instead of fretting over a camera's specs night and day. I promise you'll be a lot less stressed if you stop worrying about whether or not you have a better camera or lens than everyone else.

agreed! +10!

On Edward Weston: One Hundred Twenty-five Photographs article (23 comments in total)

It finally clicked when I first saw Weston's work. Pure brilliance. I gave my son Weston as his middle name. Wish I could afford the book!
