    I have just seen the new Sony a900 which is as good as the 1ds that I own
    but for a third of the price. Goodbye Canon, hello Sony. The industrial
    might of Sony will bury these old fashioned companies unless they respond
    with massive price cuts.

    To much opinion based on to little information and experience.

    What's the point of your reply to my apparently pointless post? I would
    seriously consider buying a Sony with CZ lenses, I have a Hasselblad with a
    couple of CZ's and you really can't beat that kind of quality, especially
    for the same price as a Canon. P.S. I used to be a Nikon user so I have no
    loyalty to multinational corporations, including Apple computer which I have
    used since 1990. If another make came along and offered something that I
    wanted that my current supplier didn't provide, I would jump ship without
    hesitation.

    Sounds like you have an impressive kit of hardware. How's the
    pictures?

    It *IS* which is why pro media and broad cast companies used it until
    very recently. Though Philips Video2000 Was better still but never
    caught on.
    Well as safe as any other large company or bank :)

    BlueRay is dead. They are too expensive and don't offer the customer much
    past upscaled DVD. Solid state players will be out soon enough. Just plug
    the thumb drive in and go.

    Yeah, Sony makes crappy audio equipment too.

    Interesting view.
    Only for a short while. Then like DVD players they will come down in
    price and up in features.
    Depends on your equipment.
    Maybe.... But that will be expensive and not offer much past Blue Ray
    for a while.

    Very intersting thought! unlike CD it took couple years to come alive,
    and quite some years for DVD to take over. And here Alan Browne says
    BlueRay is dead before its baptism <bg>

    I remember it cost almost 2K for the CD burner and it was 1X speed, the
    CD-R 1X cost around $25+ a pop. Now DVD-R is about same price with CD-R
    even I have to pay extra (about 2-1/2X more) online for the media I like. Or
    sometime I see local store sale 100 DVD-R for around $15, when I have to pay
    online store around $30 for 100 DVD-R

    Not my thoughts actually. I read an article a few weeks back about
    technology. I wish I had the link, but it was one of those days where I
    was clicking all over.

    There are many articles are up to date at one point then out of date
    later, and there are many out of date articles still available and many
    people still spread them around.

    I didn't pay over thousand of dollar for 1X CD-R bruner, but I did pay
    $20-25 for single CD-R 1X. I have read burning at 1X is better than faster
    speed, and over a decade later with much better technology I still reading
    someone passing the same old story to newer CD-R and DVD-R owners.

    What I am trying to say that we have so many one person opinion, then
    other(s) spreads the opinion to other, and sometime it sounds like a bible.

    Same like someone here wishing that Canon and Nikon will kill themselves
    to make Sony the only living thing, and I guess few other(s) may buy the
    story and use it to scare other <bg>

    Sony makes so much crap that I'd rather not have a camera than buy one
    of theirs.

    I don't own any Sony to have much to say about their cameras, but to me
    the day I can't be able to process my photos with Photoshop is the day I
    stop photographing.
