The DP Review article that this links to is interesting.  Not sure what to make of it, just yet.

I do know that the title of the Nikon Rumours piece is going resurrect the Monty Python Dead Parrot sketch.  Warning:  I'm going to an on-line scream the first time that someone tries to tell me that this camera is pining for the fjords!  :lol:  :lol:

Pining for the fjords! 😎😂🤪😎

Thanks, Dennis.

Photography: 100 percent art, 100 percent technical. It takes a photographer to blend them into an image.

At the rate we're going, they're going to have to create a Monty Python forum.  :lol:

 

Here's another one in the same series.

What can I say?

 

More than 40 years later, Cleese and company are still giving us giggles.  Talk about humour for the ages!  :lol:

They always made me laugh, not at everything, but the few skits that did left me rolling on the couch.

 

I still laugh at the Life of Brian.

 

"Always Look on the Bright Side of Life...."

 

:lol:

 

I still kill myself laughing.

Life of Brian was hilarious. Meaning of Life and Holy Grail. Flying Circus and Fawlty Towers have tons of brilliant skits, too!

 

Here's one from The Holy Grail...

 

"Run away, run away!"
