On Blood moon eclipse: Night of April 14-15 article (64 comments in total)
In reply to:

RichRMA: Use the longest lens you've got, unless you are shooting against a background for effect. To fill the frame with the moon (top to bottom) you need the equivalent of 2000mm on a FF Camera. So, 1000mm on a m4/3 and 1500mm on an APS.
Meanwhile, after a few warm, sunny days, the outlook in the U.S. NE is rain/snow and 2 degrees for the eclipse!

Mt Palomar will let you digiscope for $5/hour.Pretty good deal.

I must be using my brain excessively when I read the FF vs M4/3 arguments because I often get a headache after.

On Roundup: Enthusiast Zoom Compact Cameras article (419 comments in total)
In reply to:

davids8560: I ended up going with the RX100. My life changed a lot soon after buying it. Women paid more attention to me. The local paper did a full-page feature about me in the Sunday edition. The mayor started inviting me down to city hall for lunch every couple of weeks. People I'd had differences with in the past came to me and asked for forgiveness. It's been really great!

Davids-I bought one also and am now able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.Did you not get that power as well?

Wrong year but the Kodak Retinette 1A is my choice for camera of the year.Manual everything.Lean how to take photographs.Low res emphasis on composition+light.I love my OMD #10 art filter like a crutch.Happy New!

On Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? article (1514 comments in total)

Unfortunately after a certain price point it's never the camera.Trying to buy your way to great images is futile.

As long as it takes 126 film it's a winner.I'd like to empty my freezer.

On Compositional Rules article (120 comments in total)
In reply to:

ashwins: Very clear and informative article.

I used to concern myself with these rules in film days.Now I bracket,shoot multiple images with differing composition,and aspire to be an accidental artiste.Strength in numbers at no charge by digital.Wonderful!

The decisive moment occurs multiple times per time segment.Each beholder has an infinite set of moments and receptors.Tech has far to go to cover then all.Let the HDR roll.
