in the 80's Nikon (who was the supreme leader of SLR cameras) did not take Canon AF lenses seriously and it paid very dearly by losing its top position to Canon and has not caught up ever since.

Oh, don't know about hasn't caught up since. I used nikons in the early 2000's, didn't care then but oh yeah, they were loosing badly. Now? Well they've already lost a chunk of the market which hasn't as of yet returned (if ever) but yes they HAVE caught up.

Damn, I just defended nikon! Sorry about that, but I thought it needed to be said. Doesn't matter what you shoot on nowdays, either make fantastic images, particularly in capable hands.

Your on planet earth and not in Australia. LOL

The D90 does not have in camera HDR. And why do you want built in flash? Other than occasional emergency fill, they're useless.

Looks like my partner (who has a D90) will have a nice upgrade path if they decide to in the next while. Myself, well I don't have any money to spend on anything much so I'll just wait it out and see what happens and make do with my 7D which is doing me really well anyway. Im not going back to nikon.

Did I seriously miss that? Ha, wow.

Publicity stunt perhaps.

Personally I don't understand how a Leica APO-Telyt-R 1:5.6/1600mm would be worth 2.79 million dollars. Thats really in WTF territory for me. Unless all the glass is sapphire crystal or something ridiculous.

Yep, hit play first. Then zoom in on the LCD.

Siglauncher... ROFL. I love that name. *wonders who in hell would buy that*

Software & Accessories / Re: Lightroom 4 -v- Capture One
« on: July 10, 2012, 12:54:19 PM »
I've used a trial version of the capture one. At the time, I loved it.

However I obtained a copy of lightroom 3 (haven't got lr4 yet) and well, it flawlessly runs with photoshop (meaning you can export straight to cs5). From there you finish in photoshop, save it and lightroom picks it up again if you need to use lightroom to do one or two more things. THAT fact swayed me from capture one. Other than that, I'd propose that you should use whatever feels more natural to you.

I've used phocus too (hasselblad's program), didn't like it. It was ok, again one could probably get used to it, but it didn't grab me.

I've always kind of had a problem with the bright 'oh wow, look at me' canon's. And they really do, scream 'look at me'. I've attracted way too much attention with the times I've been dragging one around.

I'll admit I was a nikon user most of my life, and the whole look at me white thing wasn't an issue. However now that I've arrived in the canon camp, I'll be seriously contemplating the neoprene ones when I have a big white lenses of my own (won't be that far away).

I'll also go forth and admit that I have gaffer tape on my camera, across the name plate at the top to decrease people staring at me (not sure if that works btw), and some tape on my bottom grip to protect it from scrapes (that one works!).

Well on the topic of the proposed D400, the nikon folk seem to be waiting an eternity for that one too. Im morbidly interested in this one, doesn't mean I'd jump ships.. again though! Sounds like it's going be a weapon either way.

Maybe all of us canon people shouldn't feel too bad about waiting for things.

EOS Bodies / Re: 1dx a compromise?
« on: July 08, 2012, 04:16:53 AM »
Even medium format digital's are a compromise. Do they handle as easily as the 1dx you mentioned? Hell no. Do they go to what you'd call high iso? Hell no. But they are brilliant at what they do regardless. Your half way is a leica S2... still a compromise in many ways, just not its cost!

I think the 1dx in comparison to the competition is pretty brilliant, compromise or not. In an ideal world we'd all have multiple different cameras for different things (being able to afford them too) to rid at least 90% of the compromise.

EOS Bodies / Re: What will a mirror less camera offer
« on: June 25, 2012, 12:21:24 AM »
Go and look up the new olympus om-d em-5 camera. Its a tiny four thirds sensor, but it sounds like a decent camera.

Now think that canon will likely put a much larger sensor in theirs, like the G1X. Hopefully it has interchangeable lenses and makes a stand against those like those I just mentioned and the nikon 1.

Who would it appeal to? Those traveling for starters. *points to those who believe DSLR's are too big/heavy*. Other than that, I don't know...

Am I interested in one? Doubt it.

Well I thought the new Olympus om-d em5 was actually pretty interesting. If canon comes out with one which rivals it, with a much bigger sensor as the oly is a tiny four thirds, it could be a big win. Wether I'd be interested in one or not is a completely different matter though.

Fuji Velvia was mentioned somewhere in this thread. :p

I guess I'd want to ask how many still shoot film and or how did you cope with only film. I coped just fine. *shrugs*
