In reply to:

Bob Tullis: That, and maybe [rolling eyes], was exactly the reaction I hoped for.

My day is made. ;)

The only thing I know about that is it harkens memories of the Olympus Pen film cameras of yore. And that worked out rather well with regard to the interest in retro-anything today. :)

On Air Stylus turns your iPad into a graphics tablet post (61 comments in total)
In reply to:

benjicon: This is another impractical drawing solution, created by people that have never spent any time drawing. The key reason these don't work is because you cant rest your hand on the screen while using the stylus. If you were to draw on paper with a pencil you naturally rest your hand on the page and sketch away, but in the video you can clearly see she has to hover her hand above the screen awkwardly using her pinky to stabilize on the top edge of the screen. The only devices that I know of that have addressed this issue are Wacom with the Cintiq and Microsoft with the Surface Pro. Palm recognition is essential.. Don't wast your money on any thing else.

How do oil painters ever cope?

On Manfrotto 190 Series Carbon Fiber Tripod Review article (72 comments in total)

The only reason Im not using the 190CXPro3 now is for the need to go lighter, smaller when collapsed, and with as much stability as this model offers. Lost a little functionality and a significant amount of change to attain that, but what isn't a compromise when choosing some sort of photographic gear?

If the weight/size/capacity specs fit (not forgetting some may have strong feelings about twist v flip locks), this IS a fine choice that will take some reasonable abuse and endure.

In reply to:

Rob Camlin: This is an incredible photograph. Bravo, sir. You are an inspiration.

Being inspired by others work over the years I've spent here is what nudged me to try, and try harder again. And that some of those very same inspiring photographers have commented on this one. . . talk about warm fuzzies!

So I greatly appreciate being one that can do the same every now and then. This is also an acknowledgement to everyone else I didn't directly address - thank you sincerely.

On Site update: two new forums article (32 comments in total)
In reply to:

Scrozzy: Why don't you create a dedicated forum to discuss DoF equivalence with crop sensors? And then somehow, when people go in there to post, sort of lock the door so they're all trapped inside and can't get out.

Keep maintaining that sense of humor, Simon.
I particularly loved the forum description, as well:
Photographic Science and Technology
the place to discuss the finer details of sensor design, quantum efficiency and demosaicing, and to argue about the most technically accurate definition of 'exposure'.

In reply to:

vratnik: can you post a not-defished image? I am wondering how much crop is introduced by the defish algorithm. Thanks

I was prompted earlier with the same question in the m4/3 forum. Here's the response: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52241687

Thanks, ever so much. The flattery is overwhelming (but, I can take it [g]).

In reply to:

HubertChen: Dear Bob,

Thank you for this inspirational shot. It taught me how you can shoot Ansel Adams style with light enough gear and in a not too time consuming way. To me your technique is striking the perfect balance between cost, weight of gear and achieved quality. Thank you for this very valuable lesson!

Thank you also for your gallery. I truly enjoyed studying your body of work.

Also thank you so much to share this in full resolution!

I have a question for your: Can you send me a link to a near far shot of yours with this lens which is shot in daylight. I like to have a better understanding how the real world resolution of this lens is in daylight. I am thinking to buy a lens in this focal range, which I have never considered before and hope you can help me to better understand what can be accomplished. Is it possible that at f/8 at 8mm you have a pixel sharp rendition from near to far on APS-C?

Thanks,

Hubert

Hubert, check the Fisheye Set on Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/bobtullis/). I think one of the GW bridge might apply, and there's a scenic overlooking a lake that is pretty unimpressive (JPG to iPad) but it has a close focus example. Otherwise, whatever format you're holding, check a related forum to ask users about their experience with fisheyes. I've always thought these lenses interesting, but more the novelty than anything else. It's only because this particular Rokinon/Samyang 7.5/3.5 was so affordable and recommendable that I figured I had nothing to lose.

Thanks, everyone. It's especially rewarding considering the outstanding competition.

And once the prize money is received I'll be able to afford a REAL camera. ;)

Blah, blah, blah. No one is asking about what's REALLY important - like how the eyecup is secured compared to the E-M5. Focus, people. ;)

In reply to:

Seahster: Too little and far too late ... I've abandoned Aperture for Lightroom nearly 6 months ago due to the non existent support for Fuji RAW files.

I hear that. Had the same dilemma 2-3 years ago, resorted to LR to get by while I waited, and Ap slowly fell out of favor. No regrets, though it's a darn shame.
