DSLR News Roundup

October 11, 2012

A weekly survey of Digital SLR News and Updates from around the web

  • Getty Images and Flickr celebrate 50,000 image – An image from Jiangang Wang, a system engineer and photo hobbyist from Tianjin, China, marked Flickr’s five hundred thousandth image.  Getty Images’ photo editors and Flickr’s community of global photographers work together with contributors on a daily basis to ensure that what is needed at a local level is reflected in the Flickr collection imagery. As a result, Getty Images has been able to expand upon the depth of the Flickr collection and also ensure the collection has an abundance of high-quality content from regions around the world.  For more information and to view Getty Images’ Flickr collection, please visit: ­
  • TGP Launches new Website and DSLR Camera Sweepstakes – Technical Glass Products’ (TGP) redesigned website is up and running.  Aimed at architects, glaziers and other building and design professionals the site is offering a sweepstakes for one of six Nikon D3100 Digital SLR camera packages.  The revamped website features easier navigation and compatibility with mobile devices, which enable architects and design professionals to quickly explore TGP’s wide-range of specialty architectural glass and framing systems, including Pilkington Profilit™ channel glass systems and the SteelBuilt family of steel framing products. An enhanced image gallery, BIM models and interactive glass texture module provide a better picture of how specialty glass and framing systems can improve building design. New to the website are social networks, including a media hub and links to Facebook and Twitter accounts.
  • BBC Contradicts Nikon’s Claim That Its DSLRs Passed the BBC Test – Last week, PetaPixel reported that Nikon claimed that both the D4 and D800 DSLRs had passed the European Broadcasting Union test, popularly known as the BBC test, making them the “first DSLR cameras fit for broadcast.” Now the BBC is refuting Nikon’s interpretation of the tests. The confusion seems to have arisen from the tests themselves, the results of which don’t include a simple rating or pass/fail indication. More specifically, the D800′s results also had the harsh conclusion, “This camera cannot be recommended for serious programme-making,” suggesting that it failed, rather than passed, the test. Shortly afterward, the original post was deleted from the Nikon website, and replaced with a new article that only claims that the D4 passed.  Read more at

    The last time I remember this website was a FAKE. Don’t buy anything from these people because they don’t exist.
