  • I'm afraid you missed the point of my OP. I asked for others to offer their current peeves, not try to analyze mine. :-)
  • I don't personally know of Facebook selling any photos. That's not the point. The point is that Facebook reserves the option to do so, which is possibly one of several reasons why a museum that ...
  • The 50-200 is one of "those lenses", the sort that is a classic, and hard to match, much less top. One can argue that there are lenses from other makers that are sharper, but the 50-200 combines ...
  • Actually, the terms of service of Facebook states that they have the right to use any photos posted for purposes if their chosing, including promotional of commercial use, without compensating the ...
  • hehe. I was selling cameras when Kodak announced their first digital back for the Nikon F3. It required a separate computer/storage unit and sold for around $22,000USD.
  • Created discussions Recent stuff
    I've been busy on various fronts of late. Here are a few from recent concerts: Dan Bern Dan Hubbard Martin Sexton Full Set Session Americana Socks in the Frying Pan Solas Dirty Bourbon River Show
  • hehe I didn't say the results made sense! ;-) Perhaps they are testing camera sensors the same way they would test stereo amplifiers? Personally I don't give much weight to results in the way DXO ...
  • They did not say the EM5II beats the A7R in noise. They said it has a higher signal to noise ratio. What that means is for the sensor size, there will be less noise generated at a given ISO, and ...
  • Created discussions What's Your Latest Peeve?
    What is currently annoying you as a working photographer? Feel free to vent and/or share ideas and solutions. Mine: I work as the house photographer for a non-profit arts organization. My images ...
  • Replied in LOL
    Ok, you say you don't want to tread on the toes of established pros in your area but that is in fact what you will be doing. If you offer the same product and get clients they would have gotten ...
  • Actually, attempting to cite only one or two aspects of mirrorless is still coming up short. Some things people don't give enough consideration to are: WYSIWYG EVF. On the best MILCs, the view in ...
  • A magnetic closure in close proximity to where someone might store memory cards? Hmmmm.

  • Portrait photography covers a wide range of options. While individuals may not opt for portraits as much as in the past, there is still strong demand for executive and business related portaits; ...
  • Probably 90% of people stepping up from a smartphone or compact digicam buy what they hear about the most and what friends or salespeople recommend. Then, probably 90% of those people who step up ...
  • Replied in good quote
    For many years I just didn't "get" Winigrand's work. Then I started meditating on this quote. It changed my own approach to much of my photograph. I'm still working it out, and will be until the ...
  • After 35 years of delving into various technical and stylistic apects of photography, I currently feel the most important thing for me to learn and explore is expressed by the Gary Winogrand quote ...
  • Why? Because you disagree with the statement? Invalidation occurs when I contradict points I have made, not because I point out that people take umbrage over something they have no need to take ...
  • Missing the point. The author says plainly that cameras need to incorporate the same level of connectivity as cell phones. He is speaking about the future, not the present.
  • Once upon a time, wedding photography involved gear that was daunting for most people to use, so the pros really were pros, for the most part. Now people hear friends and relatives admire the ...
  • ...is different from what many on this thread think he said. "Stand alone still camera". That's what he was referring to. Those cameras whose main function is to take still photos, then download ...
