    Lovely shots Mike. In the last one it looks like the parent is trying to rest while the kid screams. I can relate to that. Statistics: Posted by the_hefay — Thu Jun 30, 2016 10:05 pm

Nikon 1 system makes a splash

How many outlets will use that original headline, I wonder, and what inspiration leads to it…

Today, Nikon released the world’s first interchangeable lens digital camera – if you ignore the military version of the Nikonos RS underwater SLR produced with Kodak. Unlike that specialised system, the AW1 is intended for the . . . → Read More: Nikon 1 system makes a splash

Pentax Q up to battle it out with NEX and Ricoh

Although it’s not Alpha, this product announcement – embargoed until 5am UK time, 23rd June, though no doubt by adhering to the embargo we will be a day later than hundreds of websites breaking it – speaks volumes for the impact of Sony’s Alpha system, its interformat lens compatibility, and the future of non-SLR systems.
