Hitler rails against the Nikon D3x

5 posts in this topic

I found this YouTube link on another forum, and it's a simply hilarious parody of Hitler and the new Nikon D3x.

I wonder why someone didn't do something similar when Canon screwed up on the 1D3 autofocus issue.

I've watched it three times and I'm still laughing.

Funny stuff Steve. I love the line "Screw Digital, my PC always hangs up anyways!".

It would be funnier if he was ripping on the new 50D that you guys are so in love with, but come on, $8000 for 24 megapixels. That's pretty bad.

I thought it was a link to Rockwell's site. He rips on the D3X pretty bad-I think just because of the price. I'm sure it's a great body if you have the money for it.

I was skeptical of the 50D,but after seeing Dan's SOTC shots,I'm not so worried. The new firmware must be pretty good. Shooting at iso 6400 with such a small amount of noise will be alot of fun.

I think 15mp should be plenty-I received some 16x20's today for a client that I shot with the 30D,and they were slightly upscaled and still looked unbelievable. He was so pleased he gave me an extra $50 and promised to have me do all his kids senior portraits and wants some images of his parent's farm.

This "hobby" is paying pretty good,but finding the time is not easy!

People need to remember NOT to judge anything until you see how it prints. The print shows more than a computer screen ever could.

MM, my 20x30 prints with the 20D/30D are excellent, and I've had good luck as well on a couple 30x45 prints that weren't heavy on fine detail. There's no doubt at all that, given the results from 8 Mp bodies, 15 Mp will be enough. It will be more than enough. And you are dead on about looking at prints rather than pixel peeping on screen.

IMO, we've reached and surpassed the Mp level needed for all but a certain small subset of pros who rely on DSLRs, particularly since the 21 and 24 Mp models are nudging up against medium format Mp counts.

It'll be interesting to see whether the DSLR makers continue to push Mp, or if they find another horse to race (like continued refinements in HighDef video within a DSLR body).

Mike, I'd be laughing just as loud if it was zapping Canon. Funny is funny, regardless of which brand of camera one shoots. smilesmile

Anyway, I've seen that Hitler YouTube parody three times now and I still come away laughing my butt off. I love the line about Hitler only shooting JPEG. gringringrin

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
