I agree with the author. For serous photographers photo is not enough.
I have moved my 820,000 images to Lightroom and am learning to like it. Some. I"m sorry they dropped Aperture.

On CP+ 2015: Canon shows off prototype 120MP CMOS sensor article (255 comments in total)

The technology keeps rolling forward...
Do we need it?
Will we buy it?
We are lucky to have clever and inventive engineers.
This is Canon's way of saying, "hey, we're sensor tech leaders!"

On Apple reveals Photos beta for developers post (125 comments in total)

I also loved Aperture, but am learning to like Lightroom. It's raw conversion is quite good. I'm manually converting 800,000 images from A to LR and enjoying the process of revisiting older images.

On Toshiba announces world's first SDHC card with NFC article (52 comments in total)

NFC - for those who don't know (which is probably most of us):

Near Field Communication

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are similar to near field communication on the surface. All three allow wireless communication and data exchange between digital devices like smartphones wirelessly.

NFC is an offshoot of radio-frequency identification. NFC is designed for use by devices within close proximity to each other.

Try raw and 3200.
All look good, the Nikon perhaps a bit better.
Ignore JPG images as different manufacturers apply differing degrees of sharpness and noise reduction making a comparison difficult..

On Behind the Shot: Clouds over Skagsanden article (117 comments in total)

Preferred the image before it was cropped. I don't think there was "way too much foreground" in the pre cropped image. The final image has dramatic light but is not quite compelling as a composition, in my opinion.

Thanks for posting your image and your thoughts, though.

In reply to:

Retzius: She writes like a 14 year old.

I'm sure she will hate that.

Her writing is fine. Nothing wrong with "puke". The focus of the discussion is way off track.

Great review - refreshing to have an honest, balanced review.
I like the camera.

Two different card types is perfect because not matter what type you have, you're in business.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2696 comments in total)

Great AF and 10 fps - what more could a birder/sports photographer want?
Nikon has nothing like this.
Distinguishes the DSLRs from the mirrorless.

I have 10 terabytes of images; not ready to move them to the Cloud.
I like the concept, though.

On Nikon D810: A sport photographer's impressions article (253 comments in total)
In reply to:

Poweruser: I guess this camera is fine and all. But it´s still a brick and a technological dead-end. I know my little mirrorless is "worse" on paper. But so much more fun to have it with me all day.

Couple the D810 with a decent Nikon zoom and what you get is almost grotesque in size and weight.

"Tech dead end"?
We could say that about anything, including the solar system.
This camera is state of the art.

On Accessory Review: Drobo Mini RAID article (149 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tactical Falcon: I agree, I am torn by the idea of anything proprietary. Support in the long run is important. Many external USB drives is cheap. Backup to the cloud etc. I love to use multi factor backup as opposed to a RAID only solution. Frankly I don't think anyone using any RAID should just depend on that alone. More backups, more safety.

If they go out of business and your unit fails there is a problem.

On Accessory Review: Drobo Mini RAID article (149 comments in total)

I'm also from the school that multiple USB external backup drives is preferable to a RAID. The proprietary data storage of a RAID is concerning. What if the company goes out of business?

On Nikon D810: A sport photographer's impressions article (253 comments in total)
In reply to:

michael2011: "And yes, the D810 is waterproof."

I seriously doubt it. Is this Nikon's claim or just the author's opinion?

Thanks for posting your experience and comments; always helpful to see how others are doing it and a pleasure to see good sports photos.
I still have trouble with the idea of the 80-400 zoom. It's two stops too slow. Even if noise is not an issue, high ISO robs dynamic range. Bike races for me are the territory of the 300 f2.8 and 70-200/2.8.

Beautiful imagery, but he is not very close to the surfers.
We see more dramatic images from Hawaii.
How about a 600f4 or a winterized jet ski?
