    Congrats John M Flores - was just reading the Nikon 1 articles over at Soundimageplus and see he is quoting your blog ( which I have been enjoying for the excellent written and photographic content). Always nice to have an established player acknowledge one's efforts!

    Anyway, I'm still hoping to get a go with one to see if it will boost my soccer Dad keeper rate!

    Cheers & well done!

    John's blog is way better than Soundimageplus.

    IMO: So is his photography. But that's totally subjective I know.

    I have to admit I don't read blogs very much at all, but what little I have seen of David's is heavily weighted towards gear reviews so you probably need an interest in the latest and greatest gear to appreciate it more.

    The few articles on Soundimageplus I read basically make him out to be a Nikon 1 fanboi - which is fine - but then he disparages the aesthetic sensibilities of people who disagree with him, which is uncool.

    John's whatblogisthis.com is friendlier in tone, less strident and dictatorial, entertaining and thoughtful, and inclusive. Also, as Mr. Remnants above stated, his photos (that I've seen) are better.

    I actually like the Nikon 1 system, and would even more if they'd introduce a 800mm or longer lens for it. And maybe lower the price a bit.

    David is a nice guy. Sometimes, he gets a little grumpy though.

    David changes cameras as often as most people change their underwear. He is usually a fan of whatever latest camera or camera system he is currently using rather than in love with any particular brand.

    LOL! Yes, I've heard about that before. Not too comfortable with the button fly fronts.

    Why do my conversations always devolve into poop jokes?
