Why ? Why ? Why ?

Of course, I refer to the TV episodes only.

there are a ton of brands but it´s 50+% apple.

never heard about product placement?

Why ?
To tick off Canon fanboys ;)
Why ?
To give them some cred back after having Ashton Kutcher promote their cameras
Why ?
They needed something that would work with screw drive lenses.

Because the TV CSI's are un-necessarily complicated and do unreasonable things.....

Yep - everyone knows that having more buttons make something look better.  Well, everyone but Apple, that is...

Isn't it obvious?

The higher dynamic range of the Nikon camera's is what enables them to pull so much detail when they enhance their pictures. ::) :P

I heard they offered the Lamborghini to Angela Lansbury's character, Jessica Fletcher….  :P

She did it, everyone of them.  How else can one person always be around when someone is murdered?  If you see Jessica Fletcher, run away very fast.

CSI may have completely fallen to the dark side, but the NCIS guys split.  The Washington team shoots Nikon, but the NCIS: LA team uses Canon.

Well I thought it was funny.
The magic they can do with photographs is only surpassed by the speed with which they can do DNA tests.

Hi Neuro, I had a chuckle.  ::)

My question is can the "extra DR" of a Nikon really enable images taken in the maner with which they use their cameras really enable such image enhancement?
Half the time the camera body is still moving when they hit the button!
Also has anyone else noticed the way Horatio leaves most of the shots by falling out of the frame?

Where my workshop for my classic cars is three of us were burgled, our CSI arrived with a camera, a bloody great tripod, I mean built like the surveyors put their theodolites on! and a flash on a cord he also took time to frame things accurately, my finger is in many of the pics he took holding the L shape measure on the door for scale and also holding a pencil to point to tool damage on the locks in situe, they then asked for the locks which were damaged beyond use so we let them take them.
No fingerprints were retrievable due to the surface they were on and though they had a suspect no arrest was made.
I wish we could have got some of the staff from tv, they could have got the prints, and the DNA in the prints and found the *#%€$¥*# with the loot before he disposed of it!  ;D

Thankfully it was not my home as I think the feeling of intrusion would have been terrible having seen what it did to an old work colleague when his home was done.

Cheers Graham.
