    I can see it all now.


    Photographer: ( composes, focuses, trips shutter release; nothing happens)


    Camera: “This is VISTA DSLR security, are you sure you want to take that photograph?”

    Photographer: “Yes.”


    Camera: “There is potential security risk in the taking of that photograph, are you absolutely sure you want to proceed?”


    Photographer: “YES!!!”


    Camera: “Very well, you will have to change your security settings to proceed.”

    Photographer: "Oh-C#@&!!! THEY ARE GONE. JUST FORGET THE WHOLE THING, YOU STUPID MICRO-NIKON. D@%$, STUPID SOFTWARE."


    Photographer a few minutes later on the phone: “Hello, B&H, How much of a trade in on my Nikon stuff will you give me towards a Canon body and lenses?”

    :lol::lmao::lol::lmao::lol::lmao::mrgreen:

    B&H : "Well, we're temporarily out of stock until Canon finishes signing their agreement with Apple. We hear their new body will have only one button and be available in designer colors. Have a nice day."

    Yeah, your next camera will be an ICANON 50D. The red ring will become lavender and long L glass will come in pastels. But it will be able to run Vista-Nikon as well. :lmao::lol::lmao::mrgreen::lmao::lol::lmao:

    And, if you're too lazy to go shoot, you can directly download images to the memory card from iTunes (but you will only be able to print 5 copies).

    Cool, a subscription to I-Photos. Just what every one needs.

    Of course Sony will opt for Linux. Pentax for Solaris and Olympus with their 4/3rds system for Amiga. :lol:

    Thats right Garbs, go ahead, make fun of my lowly D200... lol

    No one is going to be laughing when they see how nice my BSOD is going to make my workflow slowdown... wait, that's not a good thing!

    Seriously, I saw an article somewhere that MS and Nikon were collaberating at some sports event. MS had the wireless, storage and transfer area down, and Nikon had the cameras. It was something that freaked me out a little... imagine having the ability to have like 200 shooters anywhere at some event and EVERY picture they took was immediately sent wirelessly to some central storage area, each magazine able to access only their reporter's pictures, cull through them, PP them on the spot and via the internet send them directly to their paper/TV station/whoever they worked for. Average receive time from picture taken to being made available for publication at the newspaper printer's was like 1.2 minutes!
