Hitler rails against the Nikon D3x

Recommended Posts

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

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
