From what I can see, they look good. Would be nice if we knew which was which as I am no expert on them. Defenitly something I would p/u. Problem is the armorama mark across them. I understand using it on printed material so people can't copy others work for free, but the question is, is it nessesary for a 3 demensional product that can't be used except as picture referance. It does block out a bit of detail as the photos are preety small.

Hi, Bob, increasingly we're finding our news and review photos turning up on blogs and other sources without permission and without credit. While it's somewhat intrusive, I think the watermark effect allows us to protect our material (and that of the reviewer) while allowing you to see the details well enough to make a purchase decision. Considering that I have to "hand" watermark each photo using PhotoShop, I would just as soon NOT do it, but there's no avoiding it.

Hey Bill, Did not realize the extent of the problem. I understand now, though it is a pain, I reckon it is nessesary.

It really has gotten bad suddenly, I'm not sure why.

I will make sure to lighten the watermark a little further next time. It's at 30% now, so I'll try 20%. If I put the mark below, then the offending parties just crop it out.

Sorry for the smallish pics. I just replaced a broken digital camera and still had not quite figured out the whole sizing thing. Man, I hate learning curves!!
