Hardly any of Lonely Planet's list aligns with mine that includes India and Turkey as must go to photographers paradises.
Franco8: Australian Company, Product Not Suitable For Australians.Paint Matching Is Not Supported In Australia.Huh! Please Explain?
I have no idea why the article says this. I have the Swatchmate Cube and it definitely supports Dulux and Wattyl paint matching and does so accurately, for matt colours at least.

Michael Thomas Mitchell: I was a loyal Epson user for many years, but ultimately had to give up on them primarily because of their propensity to clog. Every Epson printer I've owned was given up because of this issue. Even after learning how to unclog using a commercial solvent, I could never count on whether I was going to printing one day or unclogging a head instead.
That changed when I took advantage of all the rebate sales of Canon Pro100 printers on Craigslist. I picked up one of these for just $100. The prints are not only beautiful, but in 2 1/2 years, I've yet to have a clogged head.
Canon is also very re-fill friendly. No chip disabling. Easy re-fills. And, with a chip resetter, ink levels are re-set every re-fill so as to prevent ruining a print head printing dry.
I still have and use an Epson 7510 (large format A3+ printer/scanner combo) for office work, and deal with clogged heads every few months. As a large format printer AND A3+ scanner, it's worth the trouble. But never again, Epson.
I agree fully. The only Epson I've had that didn't clog was a dot matrix. One printer that was sold to take a cartridge and paper combo didn't even get to the end of the paper pack before it hopelessly clogged. Canon on the other hand ran without issues for years until the heads wore out.
kidkelly: I've had the Epson 3800 for over 5 years...never had a clog..use epson advance B & W...beautiful results.....sometimes I have not used the printer in months...before I print I gently agitate each cartridge...sometimes do an alignment...every so often a a head cleaning..89ml carts go a long way...No complaints....!!!
This one has 14ml carts article says which seem incredibly small for an A3+ printer
anthony mazzeri: So does this printer cost $10, but then a quarter of a teaspoon of ink costs $29.95 each?
Considering it is one of the world's most valuable resources by weight - literally a few drops of ink is more expensive than a 44g barrel of oil - I'm surprised there hasn't been more investment into exploration and drilling for new ink wells.
This business model obviously worked brilliantly for them at the beginning but now is killing itself - the extortionate price of ink is why nobody buys or even scarcely uses an inkjet printer even if they do buy one any more unless they have no absolutely other choice.
The short answer is no. You can go to China and get poor quality cheap pigment ink but in my experience it blocks print heads. Alternately you can buy better quality Europe or American manufactured pigment ink but it's not necessarily cheap. I finished up throwing away my HP A3+ printer because I couldn't afford the ink.
surprised at how well the D750 holds up. Noise at 12800 (RAW) is lower than all others I looked at. Check out the wall at the top of the LH lithograph. The shading is starkly clear. Other cameras lose it in a sea of noise.
BR Optics is a name that's already taken.
SETI: Heh, green skintones again =)
I find that ACR doesn't decode NEF files properly. If you convert them first in Nikon View to eg. jpg then import into Photoshop the result is immensely more pleasing. There's no way I can tweak a NEF file in Photoshop to get the same pleasing result.
grasscatcher: Focusing after-the-fact is nice, but the real beauty here, for me, is the possibility of instantaneous focus-stacking. If they implement that feature, and do it well, I will be a player. It will be a boon for documentary photography, as well as macro photography!
I agree. I can't see why focus stacking can't be implemented on DSLRs in fact I suggested that to Nikon over two years ago but nothing has eventuated.
Can't work out what's happened here. Eyelashes in focus. Eyebrows drift out of focus on left and right. Hair as top of forehead way out of focus BUT hair at rear of head in focus.
brownie314: AT ISO 3200 5Ds/R looks like more noise than D810.
I was prepared to disagree. The blacks on the 5Ds/R look cleaner than the D810 but compare the label on the balsamic vinegar bottle and the reverse is plainly true.
57even: Mother Theresa was not a psychopath....
Sorry, just thinking about the idiocy of defining something by what is isn't.
iPhones are "mirrorless" cameras too.
Perhaps Mirrorless should have been called ILNR - Interchangeable Lens Non Reflex.
Sounds like a seriously good camera and Sony are maximising the advantages of mirrorless over DSLRs. Well done for pushing sensor technology.
lightmatters: Canon makes me frustrated. Their sensor's DR is inferior but their lenses are superior.But you know what, if their sensor's DR is just good as others then there will be no competition at all.
Some lens manufacturers have glass with optical characteristics equivalent to fluorite but without the disadvantages - fragility and large coefficient of thermal expansion.
Digitalis32: With these filters being made of such hard material that is cut so thin, it doesn't take much to imagine what would happen if one of these shattered - which can happen if they are struck hard, from the right angle. Sapphire would tear up the front element of any lens like it was made of wet tissue paper and the thin glass will cut your fingers to shreds should you carelessly attempt to remove it.
Also, 30 layers of optical coatings, that would be 15 layers per side which raises a question... Fuji EBC coatings which are the undisputed best in the industry have only 13 layers, and 99.8% overall transmittance (I can post citations on this). Since when did Korea optics manufacturers have this kind of technology?
Good points about the dangers of shattered sapphire.
Mescalamba: Thats interesting actually.
Otherwise, sapphire in this case is just synthetic corundum. Rather easy to make in large quantities. Not much to do with that sparkling blue gems. :) Im not sure if it even has same oxides as natural one. But sure, sapphire glass sounds much better than corundum glass. :D
Technically, sapphire isn't glass. One has an ordered atomic structure so is a crystal, glass has a disordered atomic structure so is glass.
Daryl Cheshire: carborundum conumdrum
corundum, without the arbs. One's silicon carbide, the other aluminium oxide.
I've read that the 5DS and 5DS R have a more saturated RGB filter to achieve more accurate colour rendition. You would think that would be a major camera feature but no one is talking about it. Nor are they pointing out that a stronger RGB filter will result in a lowering of the upper ISO limit when the low ISO limit is questioned.
