Nikon D5 & Canon 6D Mark II Delayed

Earlier this year, Nikon and Canon both announced new versions of some of their most popular cameras. The Nikon D5 and Canon 6D Mark II were both expected excite consumers, but apparently they did so a little too much.

Both companies announced, according to a report from NoFilmSchool, this month that there will be delays for their anticipated products. Nikon announced that the D5, expected out this week, will actually ship early next month, and Canon says the 6D Mark II, which was supposed to start shipping this week, has been delayed to an unspecified date. 

Nikon says it's delay is due to some final adjustments they are making on the camera, while Canon says their delay is due to an excessive amount of orders. The 6D Mark II is basically the cheap version of their DSLR line, so this makes sense as DSLRs have never been more popular and people want to keep costs low.

If you pre-ordered one of these cameras you'll have to wait a little bit longer, but when you do get one, we want to know if it was worth the wait.

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.

The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.

For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
