    Note from Amin: The post originally written here was not made by the OP. Apparently someone used his computer to make a troll post. I verified with the OP that this was not his doing at all.

    Colours being redder are not necessarily "better."

    This thread is closed, and I am considering next steps.

    Update: Something isn't right. The first post is not at all consistent with the OP's prior posting track record. Could be a hijack. I'm suspending the account pending an email response from the OP.

    I've re-opened the thread and am bumping it so everyone can see the update. The OP (Ed) is no troll. Someone made a troll post using his account!

    Good detective work Amin. The original post was so combative I thought I was on the wrong forum. I'm glad it was just a malicious identity heist.

    I wanted to let everyone know that any horribly composed images posted or stupid comments made from this account were when my account was hacked (many times).

    If you look at Stuntman's older posts, this thread was nothing like it.

    As for why ... as awesome as the internet has been towards the promotion and sharing of ideas and information across the globe, it has also empowered immature and cowardly individuals to behave in manners that they never would if they had to face the other people. Fortunately, this forum and SeriousCompacts.com are still very civil compared to some others. :smile:

    Sorry for the craziness folks!!!!!! :confused:

    Thanks to Amin's detective work and alerting me of the problem. Talk about embarassing!!!!:eek:
    That's what is so wonderful about the people on this website. Everyone knows everyone eventually and can detect an abnormality and report it. I tried to log in and couldn't. I thought nothing and received an email From Amin alerting me to the issue. I read the forum before it was removed and went "Oh S&@t", WTF is that!!!! I emailed Amin immediately to clarify.

    The little, AHEM, person responsible because of his friends prank, is now under house arrest and completely deprived of any form of electronic communication, toys, computer and anything else I will come up with for the foreseeable future. I may even invent new things for fun!!!! :biggrin:

    Imagine him sitting with friends all around texting and he will only have a pad and a pencil!!!! :dance2:

    For long distance he will need to learn semifore!! :whoo::whoo: Now back to waiting for my camera that I pre-ordered from B&H on 2/12......ARRRGGGGHHHH

    Yes I did in fact get a Canon MkIV ! I received it last week. I sold my 5D mkII and have some awesome glass for FF Canons. I inherited a 500, a 700, and a 1500mm from an uncles estate. I take aviation photos a lot and this glass needed this camera. IT IS A BRICK!!!!!!! It is only going to live on a gimbal lens mount on a tripod for aircraft and long distance nature.

    I am waiting for my em-5 as my REAL camera to carry. The images between the 2 at all ISO's up to 6500 in jpg are identical. I can't wait!!!!!

    Cheers

    The thing was, it was a pretty well written and researched troll post. Whoever wrote it obviously knows a thing or two about photography or spent a good deal of time studying this forum to figure out what buttons to push.

    Any chance the post can be resurrected with a disclaimer that it was a prank?
