Scruntys NutPea Funch's recent activity

  • The problem is European carriers and their seemingly endless drive to have your luggage stored in the hold. This acts as a form of stealth charge, because the same airlines are beginning to charge ...
  • Good grief! I didn't think Randroids still existed. It's OK to respect like-minded thinkers to Rand, you know? I know the ARI cult leaders are determined to stamp out any criticism of or ...
  • No, of course you would not be in the right to smash someone's camera. You might argue that you were taking the morally correct action in smashing the camera, but you would still be engaging in ...
  • Wow! Really? I've never heard of anyone who put Nozick in the 'socialist' camp. You would have to be so radically libertarian that you consider sewage systems a communist plot to do so. This ...
  • Well, you get bonus points for internal consistency, I'll give you that. However, isn't your inalienable right to take photograph overarched by an inalienable right for someone to not die as a ...
  • As you are such a proponent of Rand's 'philosophy' (I use the term advisedly, but recognise that "Inconsistent, self-absorbed logic-chopping" might cause offence among the spoilt brats that think ...
  • Ignoring everything else, don't you think this is the kind of action that actively promotes negativity toward street photographers? If someone actively asks you to delete an image, and will not be ...
  • I agree, these are excellent firmware updates. It would be great to see them spread to Fuji. The iDevice tethering isn't bad, but a fully tethered solution for the studio would be excellent.
  • Joed700, that's not the point of an APD lens. The closest parallel in the Nikon system is the Defocus Control lenses, rather than the 85mm f/1.4. But even this is not entirely the same; DC applies...

  • Replied in Nice bag, but...
    Why did it have to come with a clip-on strap? Not only does it make it easy to unclip (whether by accident or malign intent), but you will have to put up with the mouse-like squeak every time you ...
  • There is some major point-missing going on here. The 56mm is an excellent lens, and some engineers in Fuji's skunkworks lab came up with a way of adding an APD element without tears. Fuji, to its...

  • Yes, I get out quite a lot. Often to take photographs. What about you? Is there any out-of-doors activity in the world of measurebating quants, or is it just a desk job?
  • Of all the dumb arguments I've seen on DPR, this has to be the most depressing. You understand nothing about photography, but have proved you paid attention in basic arithmetic. Worse, you have ...
  • I'll give you defence, and astronautics, even though NASA hasn't had a new space vehicle in years. SpaceX is an interesting development in private space exploration. In almost everything else, it ...
  • Photography is like learning a musical instrument in some respects. When we start, we cannot hear the musician's own voice because they are practising scales and making mistakes. Gradually, as they ...
  • No. I'd say America had a run of about 140 good years of pure innovation (from the 'American system of manufacturing' in the mid 19th century to the development of CODIS at the start of the ...
  • I think the answer really does come down to the service provided by the local distributor. Look at the disproportionate number of UK Fuji users here, because Fuji UK provides an excellent overall ...
  • Good for you. Seriously. I make money out of film images and out of digital images I take. I'm happy with either. Personally, I find the costs involved in film are too high, because if you work ...
  • It depends on your shooting style, but I don't think I could work to 1-3 rolls a month. I'm not another Garry Winogrand, who went through film faster than most of us could type, but I'd find that ...
  • Not just colour. The costs rack up fairly quickly. Processing costs are negligible, yes, but they are a fraction of total cost of film. Currently, putting a roll of B&W film through a camera works ...
