What's a Yes/No Teller ??
What's DR ?? I thought "Dead Reckoning", but it could mean something else
Whats "High Ceiling" ?? is that like 30,000 feet in a 747 ??
200-400 what ?? Squirrels ?? That's a damn load of squirrels

And he mentioned "We must know what we are talking about", I mean, everyone knows this thread has lost the Plot, and it's now about Squirrels, and Nut Zippers (sounds exceptionally painful), and who can Post the most bizarre Image of a Squirrel, and Criminals that Live upside down in a place called Downunder.

DR stands for Dynamic Range.... as in the Dynamic Range of North American Squirrels is from Atlantic to Pacific, from tropics to the Tundra.....

I would have included a picture of a black squirrel, but it night-time here and black squirrels in the darkness don't show well.... my Canon camera does not have enough DR...

Yes, it is definitely time for you to buy Nikon. Either that or convert your camera to infrared. Also, dont forget flash. See, i have given you three possible options. Dont say i never made a useful contribution to CR.

I'm impressed Don, you & "lettherightlensin" know so much about the Thread subject, clearly Squirrels, in future if I need any answers on our furry little mates, I'm coming directly to you Guys.

But for now, I think I'm all Squirrelled Out, again, but this time I mean it, definitely.

Are you just playing around in photoshop? I want to see a blue, or green or yellow squirrel now. A challenge to all who are still following this thread and are not bored with squirrels.

One more off off topic comment and then i am quitting for the night: Ausatralia looks like a cool place to visit, but there are too many dangerous critters there for me. Here in the US, we have our killer squirrels, but there you have crocs, snakes, spiders, kangeroos?. Did I leave anything out emi?

I follow this thread with great interest ... however, I think this Squirrel too must be banned ... the first Squirrel had innocent face nevertheless he was still an indecent fella ... but this Squirrel is not only indecent, outrageous and immodest but he also has evil red eyes, I think he is sent by the devil himself, ... I think one of the commandments of CR should be "Thou shalt not display thine junk in the congregation of sinners" (ooops sorry, I meant "Thou shalt not display thine junk in the congregation of the virtuous" ;D ... Admin/Mods this is a good reason to ban this Squirrel ;D

Now, that squirrel is the best post on this thread  :D

Totally agree, and for some strange reason they look smarter than the ones we have, probably speak "American" though.

This, from someone who's loo flushes backwards. Sheesh.  ;)
this is a myth... i'm surprised you fell for this neuro.


i didn't finish reading the 7 pages of the thread, but I don't see why Canon F1 got banned.... maybe he called someone a moron once(is that really that wrong?)
maybe he disagreed with a mod(who cares?)

Has anyone given any evidence to why he was banned besides just saying he was a "jerk" or he disagreed with people? He may not have been the nicest guy in the internet, but all too often this forum is just a bunch of people agreeing with each other, slapping each others backs, and generally just cheering on Canon...
When someone has a little edgier opinion, or might have a little less cordiality, they are often treated like some kind of criminal.
Unless some good evidence is put forward(or i missed something) i dont see why F1 was banned....
I don't think disagreeing with people or upsetting some random members every so often is much of a justification.

Ha! You think that's bad, I have two white squirrels going at it - on film, and in HD! I can't remember which external HD it is on but I promise you these white squirrels are horny little things!

Alright, alright enough with the private messages. Just keep it quiet ok. The video can be seen at hotsquirrels.com, iluvsquirrelstoomuch.com and I even made a rap song out of it which is posted at wholetthesquirrelsout.com.

Just don't tell the mods, or anyone else for that matter. :-)

Surely it must be time for a lunch beer.......

Yes, people who think the D800 has better DR than the 5DMK III

So pretty sure this might be a winner here, squirrel and a nut zipper all in one image.

Of course it is "that wrong" ::) ... one can disagree with everyone and everything in CR but one has to learn to be civil ... "Be Civil" is one of the rules of this forum ... read point 4 here http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=1442.0 ... we do not come to CR to be insulted by other members calling us names ... so of course it is wrong to call someone a moron ::)
Has anyone given any evidence to why he was banned besides just saying he was a "jerk" or he disagreed with people?

As it was clearly mentioned before, by the Admin, that if the banned person contacts the CR admin, the issue can be sorted out. But if the person who got banned has no interest in sorting out the issue, there is absolutely no reason whatsoever to provide "evidence" to someone else.
but all too often this forum is just a bunch of people agreeing with each other, slapping each others backs, and generally just cheering on Canon...

Nothing wrong with that ... after all it is Canon Rumors not Nikon/Sony rumors, so there is plenty of opportunity for people to agree and cheer for Canon because there are lots of helpful people who have helped me with lots of technical things I did not know about cameras and/or photography ... it is far better to appreciate another helpful member (in your language "slapping each others backs") than insulting other members just because they do not agree us. Fyi, CR has plenty of threads/posts where people disagree all the time, maybe you just don't notice it ... hint, the subject thread is one of the many ;)
When someone has a little edgier opinion, or might have a little less cordiality, they are often treated like some kind of criminal.

Nobody is treated like a criminal because they have "a little edgier opinion". But if someone feels victimized because they are supposedly "treated like some kind of criminal" they have the option of reporting to the admin/mods and they also have the option of not being here ::)
