    Some predict the A9iii with 8K. I wouldn't be interested in a mirrorless camera at that price though unless I actually needed 8K

    Flatline at 8% of their former glory, according to canon. But interchangeable lens cameras have had far more durable demand. Point and shoots are what's fallen off a cliff:

    I think "you do you" is appropriate when it comes to personal lifestyle choices or personal values.

    I think it's completely inappropriate when it comes to determining fact and applying logic.

    Yeah that irks me. One of the things I appreciate about the NYT is how good their copy editing is. Even the Guardian will have copy errors now and then.

    Thanks, Peter. I wish we had time to rehearse so I actually knew what to shoot next, but it's not in the cards.
