Please comment briefly on whether or not you have exposed a roll of film in the last six months...and whether or not you might plan to in the coming months!
No thanks, I've made the switch and won't look back.

Please comment briefly on the megapixel horserace as you see it.
I don't see the need for such large file sizes.

I am not sure how many MP would be right for the work I want to do.

Please comment briefly on your experience with high ratio zoom lenses, specifically above 3X.
a) I tend to be conservative and stick with shorter zoom ratios.
79% (308 votes)
b) My experience is that zoom quality is such these days that I am comfortable working with quite high focal length ratios.
9% (37 votes)
c) I like an “all-in-one” lens and believe that having one lens that covers all the focal length ranges I might use is the best

Please comment briefly on an NR workflow you have found effective.
Let the camera handle NR at its default setting.
88% (602 votes)
Keep the NR setting OFF, and handle NR later.
8% (55 votes)
Always use NR at HIGH or LOW setting, depending on the subject, scene and lighting conditions.

Please comment briefly on your experience, if any, with LiveView, or give your opinion on its potential benefit in your work.
Yes, I think LiveView is an important new feature that would help me choose one model over another.
69% (452 votes)
No, LiveView is not something that would sway my decision.
27% (176 votes)
I am not sure, as I have not seen it demonstrated and am not sure how it would aid my work.

Please comment briefly on your experience with higher capacity cards or any concerns you have about memory cards in general.
Yes, I generally shoot with a number of smaller capacity cards to "spread the risk."
87% (408 votes)
No, I think those concerns are overblown and shoot with the highest capacity card my system can handle.
12% (56 votes)
My camera is a bit older and cannot handle the higher capacity cards, so this does not apply to me.

Please comment briefly on your experiences with camera phones and their connectivity features.
Yes, given that image quality was good for snapshots I might consider it.
88% (456 votes)
No, I'll keep my cell as my phone and still carry a small digicam with me
8% (43 votes)
I only shoot photos with my DSLR, so if the phone offered a lot of conveniences I might use one as a "second" snapshot camera.

Please briefly comment on the addition of image stabilization.
1) Yes, the ability to have more exposure leeway in low light and with long lenses is certainly worth any extra expense.
96% (583 votes)
2) No, I’d rather work with a faster lens and don’t find noise objectionable if I raise my ISO to a reasonable speed.
2% (14 votes)
3) I don’t need these lenses because my camera body has vibration reduction built in.
