Camera shipments continue to fall:

"The Japanese imaging manufacturers association, CIPA, has just released its global production and shipments report for the first half of the year, and there's not a lot of good news in it. Between January and June 2013 Japanese manufacturers shipped just short of 30 million digital cameras - that's a 43% drop in a single year."

    I didn’t look at all 99,000+ images in the NPCI, but I am not impressed by the winning image. I saw a lot of images Iliked a whole lot more than all of the winning images. Congrats to them anyway.

      It’s the story of the image and its excellent visual language to illustrate the story which makes this a winner. Not my style, but great work though. Congratulation.

  • Marco Santa Cruz

    that nikon rig has more craftsmanship and class than any of the hasselsh*ts being made.

    • Sahaja

      For a minute I thought it *was* a Hasselblad version of the D3200 or something

  • ShaoLynx

    Interesting time lapse rig, but it turns out that you can do it more low tech, too. A collegue took some pictures of a construction site of interest to us. Just free hand, trying to mind the framing. Compiling them into a time lapse video prooved not to be all too difficult.

    with regard to the woman getting busted up- there is no cure for stupid.

    • groucher

  • o_joe

    Any rumors of a D400? …

    • still_waiting

      Honestly, I have been waiting for any rumors of a new Nikon camera. Olympus, Panasonic, Sony, Canon, are all releasing new cameras. Where is the Nikon new cameras?

  • dswatson83

    Don’t let hasselblad see that Nikon F2. They might try to slap their name on the front and charge $6,000 for it

  • Sahaja

    That wooden F2 would look good with the brass Lomo Petzval lens mounted on it.
