Very nice shot, Barney.
Love the homage to "the painters of yore" look.
Took me a while to suss that leg, but !

In reply to:

mgrum: Why am I suddenly reminded of the opening scene of "The Terminator"? ;)

Indeed, quietly sliding around the room;
poking the Robot Floor Sweeper with a tiny little cattle prod.

Weight ?
Coz, I can use my lightweight tripod as a monopod too;
and it works really well with 2 short/1 long.

Thanks for the reply, Ron.

Brass was an entirely appropriate choice of material !

In reply to:

Ron Poelman: $300 bucks from an A7, really ?

Coz it's all about the fashion statement, not the image ?
Comfort ? Pick up an Alpha77.

Anyone needing a definition of Art vs Photography
need look no further.
Complete command of the Surreal as a tool.
Enough to make you sell your camera.
As a body of work, it does not get any better than this.

In reply to:

Ron Poelman: Handy, but please put an [OFF] switch in settings
or change the background colour to something a little less strident ?
Maybe the Blue you use in your LOGO ?

Will this thing keep going skywards as you drop out of threads
that are past their prime ?
Some posts will NOT require an answer/action.

Thanks Simon. Two hundred clicks later and we're there.
Personally i was happy with the Recent activity option,
this smacks of yet another click generator.
Anyhoo, my training appears complete,
can I have my Frozen Pilchard now ?

On onOne Software's Perfect Effects 8 available for free article (117 comments in total)

Not all sweetness and light here, either.
Gives a string of error messages (all different) and hangs activation.
Try the manual method and it shows the activation code but not the
installation number to proceed.
Not real impressed with the request to turn off anti-virus software
to install, either.
I think I'll vote with my paranoia and pass for a while.

In reply to:

steve_hoge: OK, are any shooters out there really using Memory Stick media? I wonder if they'd have had room for GPS hardware if they'd left out the MS slot...

Perhaps,
but one $5 adapter, two Micro SD cards,
equals one immense Memory Stick slot;
this is a problem ?

On MIT algorithm predicts photo popularity article (97 comments in total)
In reply to:

Adrian Tung: The next obvious step would be to put this algorithm into phones and cameras and have it score your photo even before you press the shutter release button. T__T

Leaving the door open for some SERIOUS social engineering.
Don't touch that screen, lest you fall out of the "IN" crowd;
(or the advertiser, of course).

On Sony Australia releases a3500 with new kit lens article (141 comments in total)

OZ isn't important enough to rate it's "own" camera,
and SONY OZ know damn well that the average Sony
buyer is more switched on to what's out there
than your average Canikon punter.

So the question really is,
where were these silly things headed for originally ?
A "price leader" at Costco ?

Sussed it, finally.
It's a question.
What word did I use to make all these people pull that face ?

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview (486 comments in total)
In reply to:

Shield3: Had Sony put an APS-C sensor in this I'd have bought one.

Totally valid point.
Why not the excellent, tried and true 16 or 24mp sensors ?
Might have solved the JPEG issue,
which absolutely makes a lie of the "Gold" rating
in this class of camera.
Almost an R2, so why hold back, Sony ?

On DPReview on CreativeLIVE article (144 comments in total)

Live ?
I had no idea it was dead
(apart from the flogging of expired equines, obviously).
Oh well, it's time we added some decibels
to give all that verbage some weight.
That will definitively prove, er, stuff.
Can't wait for question time via Skype, but.
There's going to be some grim late night video
coming from all corners of the Globe.
Looks at desk, hmmm, time to clear the empties.

Strange omission from test setup.
No blue eyes, four models, all dark pupils
and all at fairly low rez.
I would have thought the incredible detail in the human eye
wouldn't have been omitted from a modern Photography
test ?

In reply to:

Jogger: Editorial??? More like, Advertorial.

Yep, especially as this "non-ad" belongs in CONNECT.
Looks like blocking that is pointless now as well.
