    Nikon at What 2015?

  • The Nikonos piece was a cool little feature to watch. Nicely shot and edited.

  • The flash system is a great example of a small (?) company following what field macro photographers are building for themselves and trying to support a market niche.

    Dslr sales seems to be somewhat influenced by new camera releases. Or is it the cash-back programs? Quite interesting.

    Mirrorless hit a new low, unseen since 2013. Same with DSLRs. Looks like everyone are shrinking and this prophesied overtaking of DSLRs by Mirrorless isn’t going to happen in any foreseeable future.

  • Just found this over on DPReview for those looking for 1 J5 info:

    My back is hurting looking at that bizarre camera setup.

      I wonder how much of what he’s rigged is real need and how much is simply about drawing attention to himself. I thought I was bad at wanting to have most of my equipment with me all the time.

      He reminds me of this guy from decades ago who used to wander the streets of New York City with a giant video and microwave rig on his back (which was necessary at the time), trying to get women to take off their clothes for him, which he’d play on public access television (this was all obviously before the internet). His name was “Dirty” something. Maybe Dirty Larry or Dirty Kenny or something like that. And somehow he’d also wangle his way into conventions and trade shows. I saw him years later when video cameras were reduced in size and weight by a factor of 10 and it was like seeing someone you knew who had lost 200 pounds.
