It's you on the picture, for sure. It's a photoshopped version of the AI community picture.

The lack of smileys in the other forum is depressing.

So, Defiant Did you deliberately put spelling errors in there so people could not run that through a translator or has "Wie geht's" changed spelling since I learned German?

Please remember that your answer must be phrased in the form of a question.

Sorry Nebagakid, the Judges do not accept your reply, and we can't understand the German judges yet.

SilentEchoes: They're writing in Swiss German (or trying, since Swiss German is spoken, but not officially written), which is a dialect (many different ones, actually) very similar to some German spoken in Germany about 500 years ago. Primitive Swiss mountain folk!

It's kind of funny to have another "test" thread started by The Installer. And didn't Defiant offer to send Swiss chocolate in one of them? I already ate through the cache of chocolate I brought home over the holidays. I'm ready for a fresh delivery.

I'm still trying to figure out what exactly you do for a living, T.I. If you're in the Canton of Wallis (in the Oberland maybe?) for photography camp, you really need to update your .Mac photo gallery. Those are the first pictures you shot with your new G3. (Or was it even a G2?) I'm sure you've progressed since then.

Alright, I've said enough. Au dodo maintenant. Sweet dreams.

Alright, Powerdoc. Je donne ma langue au chat. 'Fess up what you know.

So T.I. is still shooting with film? I should have figured out as much.

Even though my film SLR is a Pentax, I might not be able to resist the D70 either. But I think I would still prefer a less expensive Pentax *ist D. More waiting...

Quick reply/interjection:

Film, Schmilm... Nah, film, for all intents and purposes, is (almost) dead.

Ni... 1... = Nikon D100. Powerdoc knows (everything)

BTW the general consensus is that the D70 will rock/is rocking already. Especially at the price it's coming in. Pentax, Schmentax... nah...

Gotta rush. Sorry. Hello and thanks, Beige_G3.

And I am relying on you all to keep this thread going

Okay. I sent eight different kinds of black chocolate to your address. There are nine objects in the package though...

Shipping is express and cost me a hefty sum, but I think you'll appreciate it.

Oh, and remember: Share with your kids!

Bien sûr que Powerdoc knows everything. He's a doctor and he's a Frenchman. (Note for the PC police: I am a Frenchman too, so don't give me no shit. )

Right now the D70 does look much more attractive than the Digital Rebel/EOS 300D. Everybody thought that the Digital Rebel would kill Nikon in the low-end DSLR market. But sometimes it obviously pays to take more time and bring a better product to market. Canon's had me in the bag in the digital arena, but Nikon's D70 has turned my bias upside down.

Quote:

Maybe, maybe... I'm just an amateur who wants to take good pictures. I have no intention of making a living off photography. As I said before, my Pentax cameras have always been models of simplicity. Admittedly, they were all manual film SLR. I've never owned (or even really used) an autofocus SLR of any kind. That's why the move to my digital P&S was especially hard. Moving from manual focus to slow autofocus was torture.

Thanks Defiant.

Don't worry for my kids : they will have nothing (J/K) i think it will be good for their education to taste good swiss chocolate

Thanks in advance.

I hope that this chocolate acts as a pre-payment for the unlikely time when I'd need plastic surgery...

With all the money your swiss banks have, you'd think your scientist would be able to figure out a way of making cheese wihout holes.

There is swiss cheese without holes, but it's just not called Emmentaler, you know.

Emmentaler is the cheese with the holes, and also the one which the rest of the world refers to as "swiss cheese", even though there is no such thing as "swiss cheese" as a single product.

Escher, old chap,

How your opinion has changed in less than two years! Of course, digital photography has changed quite a bit as well.
-------
I am like a chameleon

But seriously, technology moves on. And so do I . . . . . . 8) or at least, I'd like to think so . . .

Powerdoc knows everything.
-------
Yeah, and dontcha just hate him for it? [no "grin" BTW]

He's a doctor and he's a Frenchman.
-------
A deadly combination, if you ask me

Note for the PC police: I am a Frenchman too....
-------
Sorry to hear that I never knew

Everybody thought that the Digital Rebel would kill Nikon in the low-end DSLR market. But sometimes it obviously pays to take more time and bring a better product to market.

Good to see Nikon getting something right for a change.

I've never owned (or even really used) an autofocus SLR of any kind. That's why the move to my digital P&S was especially hard. Moving from manual focus to slow autofocus was torture.
-------
Luckily, autofocus is "quite" fast these days. And talking about digital, apart from anything else, it's so cheap: no more spending money on film

Darn, just missed a Nikon watch on eBay but managed to get a Nikkor 35-70mm f/2.8 for a good price.

And talking of cheese, I am a Hittachääs kind of a guy myself
