I found this Nikon Rumors thread kind of interesting to snoop on.

The idea of Nikon RT flashes came up in the thread on the rumour of a new Canon flash; I have little doubt Nikon has examined a 600 thoroughly and probably has investigated the radio protocol too.  Maybe one day after Yongnuo knocks off Nikon's notional radio protocol, a common standard will emerge...   ::)

A good image might fit entirely into the histogram, might not.

And it was also interesting to see how anemic the forum is on Nikon Rumors compared to Canon Rumors.  Very little activity, not nearly as well-organized, not as much content.

i wonder what they think of the recycle times
I've found them noticeably slower than 580 exII flashes using the same eneloops

still good flashes though

People complain no matter what.  It seems to be human nature. 

If all cameras and accessories had identical features, there would be no reason to have more than one company.  Competition for sales is what drives innovation.  Sometimes, what we think is a great feature is not really a market driver and sales are not affected with or without it.

And it was also interesting to see how anemic the forum is on Nikon Rumors compared to Canon Rumors.  Very little activity, not nearly as well-organized, not as much content.

For entertainment purposes, canonrumors is the place to go.  On the Nikonrumors forum, it is just people asking questions and getting good answers.  Informative and educational, but for train wreck entertainment, no where near canonrumors.   ;D

Could it be that it's just so boring in Nikonland that they prefer to come and troll on canonrumors? ;D

well compared to most forums, this forum is quite anemic. just a fanboy nest for validating a purchase. so let's not call the kettle black.
