  • Great shots. In fairness, he's in the UK. We get light like that for one day a year in July!
  • Good point well made. I'd like to say I've forgotten more things about photography than most people know, but actually this shows I don't know that much!
  • It's going to be extremely difficult on such a tight budget, unless you go second-hand. I'd avoid any kind of compact, no matter how good on paper, because it simply won't track something as fast ...
  • Unless you have a pressing need to sell one system right now, use both side-by-side for a week or two. You'll naturally gravitate toward the one you enjoy the most. You need to avoid the 'the grass ...
  • Indoors or out, you ideally need a shooting space about 7m long, 5m wide and 4m high for a full-length photo of a person or small group. The width and height required are governed by the length ...
  • This is part of a grimly predictable shift in the market. It's happened to many branches of consumer electronics, and I don't think photography is any different. 1. Entry level of the market gets ...
  • Yes, but it's doing fine because it has gone extremely high-end. Like audio. If that's the future for cameras, expect a lot more Hasselblad Lunars.
  • But if you relax your eyes while staring at the dress, you see a 3D picture of a puppy.
  • Replied in Really?
    The problem is, I don't think they can make that transition. In the SLR days, a camera was a relatively simple piece of technology. It was a glorified black box, with a piece of photographic ...
  • You are absolutely right, but absolutely missing the point. People who care about IQ will take time and trouble to use good equipment, learn about post-processing, and apply it to their images. Peo ...
  • And yet, the CIPA figures say otherwise. The camera market in 2014 was a quarter of the size it was in 2010. It took a while for the smartphone to have an effect on the 'enthusiast' market, ...
  • Absolutely right! All the current photographic ships are sinking, but some are sinking faster than others. Fortunately for DSLR users, their ship has a larger orchestra than most. It helps distract ...
  • Replied in Of course!
    Think of all those fine images made on original Canon 1D or Nikon D1 models. The image quality available from the best sensors at the time (in terms of outright resolution and high ISO ...
  • An academic qualification's use in a commercial environment is to open doors. But with an ageing population clinging desperately to what little job security they can muster, those doors don't open ...
  • I think the problem is the perception of impropriety is indistinguishable from impropriety. My first reaction to your description of Robin Wong was to think he cannot possibly be independent because ...
  • This can only work if you spread the topics enough for a large number of people to pay for Consumer Reviews. One week it's microwave ovens, the next it's zoom lenses, and so on. Once you get to a ...
  • Replied in I doubt that
    Ah, I see. No, as I said, I was responding to the comment made by the Amazon.com guy, not about the UK thing. However, it seems that Amazon UK has the same stock response and the Kindle Library is ...
  • Replied in I doubt that
    It depends on the file itself. A Kindle is not the only e-reader, and Kindle Store is not the only place to get ebooks. Just google DRM-free ebooks, and you'll see hundreds of stores and sites and ...
  • Well spotted, fair point. In fact, it's so identical, I'm sure it's a scripted response.
  • Replied in I doubt that
    Sure. Kindle Library files are protected by DRM (Digital Rights Management) software, which prevents you from handing the file on to a third party, altering the file, passing it off as your own, or ...
