stevens37y: Better to make such a thing than watching the TV every evening.

Definitely watching TV is much better than spending so much time and effort on something as worthless as this.

In reply to:

photo_rb: I'd love to see a future review of ball heads suited for lightweight backpacking tripods.

For lighter tripods Markins is the only option with a worthy load to weight ratio. No review needed.

On Battle of the titans: Top ball heads tested article (268 comments in total)

A wasted effort with misguided conclusions. By load to weight and price, the "left-handed" ArcaSwiss Z1 with the Kirk release is the only head worth having (with Markins being the only alternative and the only worthy option for lighter tripods).

On Nikon Df Review preview (1613 comments in total)

Nikon is not as dumb as it seems: baby boomers are entering the nostalgic age. They've taken enough pictures already, they just need to hold something familiar that they can still recognize. 16 mp? Oh, my... Some may need new reading glasses.

photo_rb: photographers vs. technonerds. Ansel would have loved his iPhone.

Yes, Ansel would have loved his iPhone. And once he is done talking, he would use a view camera with the best optics to take photos.

Sorry, my bad. I thought it was a photography site.

This is a fake record. I don't know what "antique cameras" this guy owns, pinhole, Polaroids, digicams, or smartphones, or may be he owns a thousand copies of the same model, but in my book "antique camera" stands for film. The world record for having the largest number of film cameras belongs to Richard LaRiviere (USA) who owns 894 DIFFERENT film cameras that he has collected since 1960.

On Exposure: Gianpiero Riva post (9 comments in total)

If I have a bakery, would my customers care for my excuse that I only use a battery operated oven? No great photographer was ever proud of using inferior equipment. "Mobile photography" is not photography, it is an evil plot to destroy the culture of photography by replacing the role of proper equipment with snobism and the cult of personality.

I finally see what "mobile photo" is all about. And welcome to my ignore list!

In reply to:

absentaneous: can someone explain me what's the difference between mobile photography and photography? and why don't people say DSLR photography, compact camera photography, m4/3 photography, laptop photography, PC USB webcam photography, etc.?

This discussion is not useless, it just did not turn out as flattering as you expected. I don't know of any great photographer who was proud of taking photos with inferior equipment. If you want to be a real photographer, stop pretending that you are so good that you can take pictures even without a real camera.

Absentaneous is wrong, mobile photography is not just photography, but a dedicated attack of the "progressives" to diminish and destroy the culture of photography. While you are enjoying your moment in the spotlight, you should understand that you were simply picked by the "progressives" as a tool of their destructive agenda.

The mobile hype is not just annoying. It is a dedicated wide spread attack to diminish and destroy photography.

absentaneous,
The answer you are looking for is snobism. "Look - I can take better pictures with my phone than you with your DSLR!" It is just a new phase the "progressives" are going through. Simply ignore it. Once it runs out of being "a new thing", it'll die out for the lack of actual substance.

On The DSLR Field Camera article (180 comments in total)

Nice post. Thank you for taking time to put it together! One minor observation is that the perspective was not corrected in the first photo. The trees are falling to the right and left. This however does not make the photo any less impressive.

Does NOT work properly with Safari on iPad 2 or with Internet Explorer (Windows 7). Works great with Firefox on PC.
