Is Pentax 645 going to become a difficult camera to get?
Seems like it might. $10k, 40 megapixels (MUCH cheaper than the competition) and the camera itself is really nice to use. But, perhaps Pentax doesn't have the production capability to meet demand, or maybe there aren't enough sensors to make the numbers of these they'd like to? http://www.amateurphotographer.c... 19 Jun 2010 18:57

Mad Cow disease did hit epidemic proportions as predicted by some. But it only hit Brit politicians and fake cops.
Ever feel like smacking some of these politicos in the head with a heavy monopod? It's bad enough the fake police (forget what they call them) in Britain are idiots, but some of the politicians are off their rockers. http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/news/Photographers_a_threat_to_beach_safety_council_insists... 4 Jun 2010 00:34
It's official! Sony couldn't fix the NEX lens problem.
Could probably get away with the 16mm at f2.8 in a pinch, but it isn't in the same league as better micro 4/3rds lenses. There is a limit of what you can do with a set amount of funds, and Sony needs to spend more and make the 16mm more expensive so it can do a proper job. There is a reason a Zeiss 21mm for a FF c... 5 Jun 2010 20:16

Just for shits & grins, here's a photo of a common (region dependent) wildflower that some of you more-urban denizen may not have seen before. http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4055/4660499776_3452982211_b.jpg I though these had died-out in my meadows due to some harsh freeze-outs, but I found a large 30x40 ft. ... 1 Jun 2010 13:08
