    Although my camera gear is Canon, my film scanner is a Nikon (4000). Does that
    count? ;)

    I have listened to Rob speak on many subjects and his capacity to understand
    greatly exceeds many academics.

    1.) Why bottom post
    - I can't see anything wrong with top posting

    2.) Why trim replies
    - I don't know which bit I'm replying to

    3.) Don't thread messages properly
    - I can reply to anyone in the thread, regardless of the post I am
    responding to

    All people read newsgroups the same way I do, so my way of doing things
    should be just fine.

    Hope that clears things up for you.

    Thank you, AU Digital Photo Of The Day !
    for pointing out the obvious to Miro, he must have been sleeping on the job
    here :) Come on Miro, you can do better then that.

    Well, Miro that may very well be the case, but then he should have been a
    little more specific in this case - what camera's is he talking about - what
    camera's do you think he is talking about?

    anyway, everyone to his own

    Hi Wiz,

    did you make any sense out of all this? :)

    if you got a question, why not just ask away - and skip the part if your
    NokiN is better then NonaC or the other way around, as you can see it really
    stirs up the crowed in all camps! :)

    All Hail Photography :)

    go and have fun making images

    Do we all have to apply to the general population? And what is wrong with
    driving Maserati ? it is just as good as the next car - I for one would love
    to have one! beats driving a Lada

    much of a worry factor. - sold mine :)

    The problem being - its all Canon and Canon related threads giving me
    the shits. I didn't think anyone used Nikon anymore. Hence the subject
    to still see if there really was a Nikon anymore.

    Repetitious questions How much is a 10D, which lens allthe time, pro
    kits from DCC, focus problems 10D - all this breaking down into "Miro

    Can't we have some sensible technical photographic stuff.

    Ill start another thread then watch for it :)

    Hi Wiz,

    I totally agree with you about the endless threads about the next thing on
    the horizon and the superficial problems associated with them. And yes, it
    does seem like there is a larger NonaC growed here, but it is not quantity
    that counts :)

    regardless, I look forward to some interesting threads, I love to learn
    more, which is what makes this so exciting for me.

    best of luck

    Henrik, Sep 17, 2003
  15. Sorry but I must disagree with Henrik there. QUANTITY counts.

    If I ever take a quality photo I may revise that ;)

    appears to have written:

    I'm with ya :)

    Shot some stuff (indoors) on the weekend with Henrik's 100-400 which is
    still for sale, I think.

    Nice lens.

    I'd like to know which Canon body you refer to... or which planet you've
    been living on... my IDs, 1D and 10D boot up just fine... not only that
    I can activate shooting mode immediately even when reviewing images...


    Flourite Optics (only Canon, thats why Sony use them for broadcast)
    Diffractive Optical Element optics
    Image Stabiliser Systems (all original work by Canon)
    Aspherical lenses ( mass production technology thx Canon)
    CMOS sensors
    DIGIC image processor (the only special purpose imaging chip made by
    anybody.. all other manufacturers use off the shelf processors)

    In fact I'd like to know what, if anything Nikon have been doing for
    the past 10 years... seems to me Canon have been pretty busy

    All compact digital cameras take time to boot up.. not just the Canons

    Talking about SLR's, 10D ver. D100
    EOS 10D takes 4.5 seconds to boot....time till you can take a picture.
    During this time you have to put up with an optional add (splash screen)
    from Canon. This is just rubbish.
    With the Nikon turn on and squeeze away, within a fraction of a second.
    No silly splash screens, and when it comes to reviewing your image, none of
    this low res crap for the first 2 seconds while the digic chip works out
    what its doing, you get a complete full res image instantly. I have used
    both, Nikon is far better for speed, in operation. Admittedly it needs a lot
    more post work, Auto white balance could do with a complete overhaul and the
    Canon is certainly much better in this department, but as I said in my
    previous posting I can afford 30-40 seconds in post production not 2 seconds
    while I am shooting. Try giving the Nikon a go Serge, you'll never be able
    to go back to the Canon, and you would realise just how slow the Canon's
    are, and what you have been missing out on!

    This sounded like a joke, but to be sure I grabbed mine to test it. Less
    than a second elapsed from flicking the power switch to the sound of the
    mirror slap, about the same coming out of sleep mode.
    Canon EOS 10D or Canon S45 point and shoot? There is no splash screen of
    the 10D, nor was there on the D30.
    I'm getting the idea that you have either never picked up an EOS 10D or you
    have a misunderstanding of how long a second lasts.

    Both the Canon and Nikon dSLRs are great cameras with there own pros and
    cons. Spreading bigoted misinformation is of no benefit to anyone.
