More important than equipment, is the moment.
RichRMA: Wondering about construction. Every Manfrotto I had from monopods to tripods that used plastic clamps or related items eventually broke. This one looks all-aluminum. I hope so.
I have one 055 and works great. Sand, cold winter, ocean water, mud, rocks, hot summer, etc... and have a nice and new look after all. One reason is that I do take care of maintenance of mine equipment.
Many of the images that are obtained, help promote tourism and the city or country as a hub of interests, socializing, business, etc.., The countries should think twice before opting for this law. This is a law against freedom of expression too. And a painter can have?
TriezeA72: Give it a few days and a Chinese version will be available on cheapBay!..... for half the price
Half is to much.
REALLY?!And photos will be taken by the same friend, same hand, same clothe?That friend is suspicious.
Something that torments me and wonder why that NASA does not keep these objects to the museum itself, or has more units?Or is in need of money to fund projects?:)
More original than the version of Hasselblad. We have the original product without being disguised as others did. With a touch of wood ;)
"Made in Korea" North or South?
For $64 USD I don't complain.
Digitall: The contest juris were undecided up to penultimate round? Please, very strange that action, and providing a false expectation to selected photographers. It was not a politically correct action. I doubt that the rules were clear.
Must be forgotten the controversy winning photograph of world press photo by Paul Hansen on 2013:
When I said that would be a known situation right from the beginning, is to the effect that when we have a picture in hand, and who is used to dealing with photography at this level, I assume you know minimally if the image is or is not "overly" manipulated to have a continuity in the competition. imo
Your point of view may also be valid. Never will know. But I still think that one should not get that far with these image that were disqualified by the high PP. After all it was a situation known from the beginning.

davepanorama: I just see a huge amount of noise even at iso 400, seems quite wrong to me.
thirty-thousand-dollar cinema camera, with a external antenna like a 90's cellular phones? Cmon, we are on 21th century Alexa!
To be honest, I think the photos presented here are far from the quality that this(or other) camera produces. As photographs to demonstrate the ability of a camera, leave much to be desired. The post processing is exaggerated. For presentation of images from the camera for a test, they shall be as simple and basic possible, without resorting to large corrections. Again, images should contain no more than the basic corrections. Not expected a demonstration of skills in image processors. Keep it simple, It's the way most people expect to see images from a camera test. At least me. IMO
And soon we will hear the Sony audio business will go on sale. Are only predictions...
I have some filters Marumi, and price are good, and quality above expectations. But for now are worth the money they cost. If one day some fame makes them up the price, probably cease to be interesting.
1 more point for the MFT system, well done.
Biowizard: Good to see the firmware updates continuing into a new version. I wonder whether they will add a 40mp "high res" mode at some point, to avoid the E-M1 being eclipsed by the E-M5 II? The physical hardware should support it ...
I think technically possible, and really hope that Olympus do. In addition to the Olympus E-M1 is still be the flag model.
Rockaw: Can we please have the red/yellow peaking options in the new firmware?
Since the beginning, I pray that the Olympus put these colors for focus peaking, it costs nothing, I think is clearly a lack of will from Olympus, or they do not read some customers' requirements. Let's wait..., again.
