princecody: Wonder what camera & lens was used?

Most likely M-Monochrome. Expensive artwork can't be done by some mass produktion cheap dslr cameras. :)

SeeRoy: Trific invention. Only one thought - will it hold urine without disintegrating?

Only one thought - why would you want to urinate into it?

This looks like an advertisement.
Anyway, although the pictures are awesome the photographer is not someone eager to share his "making of" secrets.

The first one with a girl and a round hat is nice. Saved to comp.
The rest - total garbage for a stranger.

biza43: These actually make sense, it's just a downsize from their similar range for DSLRs. Believe or not, I have yet to find a good backpack that can take my E-M1 and lens, plus a small laptop, plus a variety of miscellaneous stuff, for travel.

This might be it, finally.

To biza43,
if you went for mirrorless for less size and weight you may consider a tablet instead of a laptop.

Have you tried Lowepro Photo Hatchback 22L AW?

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II: A professional's opinion article (511 comments in total)
In reply to:

marc petzold: A good review - thanks for posting it. Like always, different people have different needs. Only one thing sounds funny - about the asking price of the 7D II - for that price i'd get a decent FF DSLR or DSLM, i think the 7D II is somehow overpriced for the features, yes there's the 10FP/S speed, but besides that...it's just APS-C, not Fullframe.

You pay more for:
1. 10fps;
2. 65 focus points;
3. A separate focus control;
4. 200k shutter actuations.

A sport/wildlife photog might want it as a backup camera. If you use your camera for taking occasional pictures of your family and sightseeing you won't understand the pricetag of the 7dm2.

A 54mp 10fp/s 1dx upgrade?
A full frame mirrorless?
A 24-300 f2.8 lens?
A 24-70 f1.8 IS USM lens?

In reply to:

ConanD: For those that really like this camera, you can thank me. True to form, as soon as I purchased the D610, here comes something that has improvements in the areas I would like (shutter speed, autofocus, processor, et. al.). Anyone want to buy a used D610 for retail price?

On Fujifilm X100T Overview preview (637 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sebit: 'T' as in Third time's the charm? I don't think so.

Depending on whether I use the screen or the viewfinder I get 200 to 280 shot on my X100. I dont remember going beyond 1000 shots on the D700, but my D610 lasts for 1300 shots. However, when using solely the live view I cant expect more than 100. Anyway in my opinion every photog must have an extra battery for his camera just in case.

gsum: Thanks for the warning regarding aerosol sprays - I would never have thought that fire could be dangerous.

Do it outside on a windy day.

EssexAsh: were they Leica specific rubber bands? £20 each?

The Hasselblad bands and pantyhose will fit only medium format.

I watched the video mute and still understood the ideas perfectly.

In reply to:

Ken Phillips: I have used a mirror with a "window" sash pattern and real curtains taped on the thing for indoor portraits, 'cuz the light coming through the window is never quite right (or, like me, your studio has no windows!)

The shape of the square softbox is made to mimic light coming through the window.

Some tips can be very useful when on an emergency shootout (nothing but the camera available) and one needs to improvise.

ScottRH: The D810 looks like the body D700 users may go for since the FPS is up. It should not take long to see if all of the D800/E issues are fixed.
But then again, a D710? !

A D710 with a 16mp D4/4s sensor and similar low light capabilities, 51+ AF points, 7-8 fps, silent motionless electronic shutter, 1080/60P + 4K video, 3.2' Full HD screen, WIFI, viewfinder with an optional semi-transparent LCD layer for precise manual focusing, etc.

In reply to:

peevee1: How come they need a firmware update for every camera to support a new lens? And what other lens makers are supposed to do, who cannot upgrade a firmware in every Fujifilm camera as soon as they release a new lens? And what will happen to old bodies when they go out of support eventually - no compatibility with new lenses for them?
Seems like a bad standard.

New lenses will work ok, but will not show up correctly in the exif.

Ivan Lietaert: No need for 4K video??? That must be in a parallel universe.

There's an adapter from Nikon lens to Panasonic bodies. The GH4 has a great manual focus assistance during video.
