  • but there are diminishing returns as the price increases.  In general a $1000 lens isn't 10 times better than a $100 lens nor is it 10 times worse than a $10000.  People with finite budgets are ...

    No need for an account if you've configured the gallery correctly.
  • Replied in +1 for Google+
    I know it's supposed to be a Facebook alternative, but it's great for sharing photos and videos.  One might think that Facebook would be similar for sharing photos but it's just not as useful for ...
  • Instead most everyone else is arguing the premise. I think you've answered the question well, though. Canon doesn't have better DR because they don't think it would be worth the additional cost. ...
  • You can still get money for a 5d and even more for a 5d2. As long as it still works the 5d3 will have value.
  • Agreed, many different countries with many different cultures. My point was only that there is a broader European culture which most of the countries share.  English culture and Greek culture, for ...
  • Europe isn't a country but it definitely has a culture that distinguishes it from other regions of similar size and population.  Like most things it's neither perfectly defined nor always strictly ...
  • Europe is neither irredeemably failed nor is it a perfect society with absolutely no problems.  Saying Europe is nice doesn't mean that the US is awful and saying that Europe has problems doesn't ...
  • but sling straps (e.g. Black Rapid) are definitely worth the money. And if you want to look cool, don't bring a DSLR at all.
  • I'm sure you would do a much better job running a camera company, but it's difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff in online discussion forums.

    Like the 600mm f/4 II? http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=654&Camera=614&Sample=0&FLI=0&API=0&LensComp=748&CameraComp=0&FLIComp=0&APIComp=0 To my eye it ...
  • Hopefully you can inspire to fix a useful but broken system. Good luck!

  • Language in general and English in particular isn't bound to strict rules. It evolves and changes. The only requirement is that people agree on its meaning. There's general consensus that the word ...
  • Replied in Zero
    No one needs a camera. People lived for countless generations without photography of any kind. The question should be "is the extra performance of a 21 or 36 or 50 MP camera worth the cost?". For ...
  • It almost seems too obvious to mention, though.
  • Perhaps they were happy because they were in Paris in springtime. I think there may even be songs about that being a good thing. And how serious were these Nikons?  There are some people who think ...
  • If B+M stores had links that he could give you to generate additional revenue I'm sure they wouldn't be quite as obsolete. Also, he hasn't bought at cameras or electronics retail since the 70's? ...
  • Replied in Kids these days
    People have been making the "people these days don't do things the right way" rant for at least as long as there has been written language to record them.  I'm sure when people started writing ...
  • It's not generally possible to wipe off a polarizer.  The polarizing material is generally contained within the glass (or plastic) and not on top of it. Try testing the polarizer against an LCD ...
