This thread should be deleted, clearly biased.

Edit: changed fictional to biased.

Perhaps ... oki, let me ask again, where's the irrevocable, irrefutable, substantiated cast-in-stone proof of your claim simranjits?

Or is this just another feeble attempt to trol and bait like in other threads?

I mean we should be wary of all these editorials, could be sponsored by any one camera maker to throw another into disrepute. Etc bad QC or bad design. These are obviously cleverly engineered. We wouldn't know for sure of course . But it doesn't harm to be a bit skeptical.

Here's the gist of the online editorial.

The Canon cameras seemed to be unable to take the extreme cold with cracked LCDs etc....

But to be fair to Canon, there was a greater proportion of Canon users than Nikon users (mainly D700).

haha, read this article some time back. i am a Canon user. To be fair to the "editorial", it is very clearly stated that on that trip, the majority of the cameras brought were Canons. useful for those planning a trip to the Antarctica?

You are aware that LL is well-known for being UNBIASED, right? That the equipment he brings along is usually paid for out of his own pocket, rather than sponsored?

Unless I'm going to the Antarctica (in those weather conditions too) to take photos too, I don't really care.... Why worry so much? :dunno:

I'm just saying we should take it with a pinch of salt, a little bit of skepticism is always healthy. Its not a meaningful statistic by any stretch.

He never said it was. It was a straight-up report of what worked, what didn't.
Well we should rather think about why he would post such a thing, his slant towards sony is unsettling somewhat. It could be a big PR thing for Sony instead. Recent evidence points to this , if you look at his past articles. Oh well it's just the feeling i'm getting.

He has ALWAYS done it for all expeditions. As for his posts about Sony, that's simply because the A900 is the camera he's currently using. And if you read a bit more, you'll see him go totally ecstatic about the 60MP Phase one back.

P65 isn't competing against the a900. His enthusiasm over the a900 is a bit not normal. Well just my feeling.
