Sony will go anywhere anyone else goes. Since Google has abandoned(?) the google glasses thing, Sony is getting in.

I suspect they're developing some bacon flavored products to compete with the fast food joints!

This has nothing to do with Canon, but it's one of the more well done things I've seen about a photographer pushing the bounds of Art.

Today last day for refurb Canon Powershot S100 for $109.

It's not today's tech, but it's a hell of a good pocketable camera for not much more than petty cash.

Portrait / Jack-O-Lantern Portrait

It being the Halloween season...

I just realized I don't have a decent jack-o-lantern picture. The best I have is this hastily done thing with a little P&S from five years or so ago. Anyone have any good pictures? I'm going out looking the next week or so, see what I can scare up, so to speak.

Interesting reasons why one pro photographer moved to Sony mirrorless from Nikon...

Makes me wonder how far this will go before Nikon and Canon get some convincing product into the marketplace.

From my area, Philadelphia photographer Ray Metzker dies.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/12/arts/artsspecial/-ray-k-metzker-art-photographer-dies-at-83.html?smid=tw-share&_r=1

Given how worked up folks get on this forum, take notice they never said what kind of camera this guy used.

On your deathbed, Canon, Nikon, they really don't matter. Only your pictures matter.
