Yeah... damn these article that force you to read them!
The Name is Bond: The original HTC tanks, they weighed down my pocket terribly. Never again.
Give me the plastic fantastic, just make them more durable. Metal doesn't really help in any case. It only means you won't likely get a cracked case, but the electronics remain as fragile and arguably a metal case transmits shocks better and so are worse.
Indeed... my first thought when reading the specs was "Wow... don't want to be dropping *that* on a hard surface, jacketed or not".
mansod: The images may be pretty and artistic but I question the method being used to capture them.
"It has negative cookies!!"
Thanks for the info. No biscuits = no deal.
Superka: Nice picture! XP 64 is the best Windows ever made. Still using it. Absolutely Happy with it, not happy with Vista/7. And still shooting film!
"not happy with Vista/7"
You're "not happy" with arguably the best version of Windows since, well... Windows? I'm talking about 7, obviously. :)
Lenscraft: Every time I read comments on DPReview, I'm struck by how negative and angry that they seem. This doesn't only apply to the Canon vs. Nikon vs. Sony etc comments. As a response to this rather lovely scenic, I'm reading things like this:
"Always seemed blurry to me"
"Horrible image. To avoid as background at all costs."
"Proof, if it were needed, that even a good photographer can produce an utterly uninspiring image that looks fake."
Why are folks so negative? It's a pretty picture. Not my personal style, but that doesn't mean that I tear it down. Remember, there is a human being, a photographer like you, behind that image.
"Unfortunately the Internet to many people is like a megaphone you hold up to your rear end"
Never seen it put so well, 'til now.
ZAnton: is there any other difference between LR4 and LR5, except for the updated camera list?
LIMD, If LR5 simply "doesn't work" on your machine, I suggest you look elsewhere for the issue... e.g. your computer / software / infection status / driver status, etc.
Spectro: Every time you update Lightroom it is redownloading 872mb. why can't they just do like window little update for just the newer codec.
"Only a measling 83mb to download Camera RAW update for Photoshop CC. lol! Beats Lightroom anydays."
Which has what to do with what, exactly? I'm missing your point here...
awoz: #11 Those lenses in the bag (slide #1) should have a lens cap.
budi0251: let's start with the first and foremost important item you MUST have in your "camera" bag; the "CAMERA" itself, it's a camera bag for pete's sake.
"What's in your camera bag? A camera (hopefully) and maybe a lens or two, but that's probably not everything that you need."
It's on the leader page, Pete.
Denver Wedding Photographers: Seriously funny article.
My only question for the author would be, is there anything in that list that would not be obvious to a photographer, pro or otherwise?
Some folks here really need to get over themselves. Stop assuming that every article is written for *you*. There are a great many people reading this who would benefit from it. Three years ago when I started out, I didn't have most of this stuff in my bag. I do now, and use most of it on a regular basis. For anyone starting out, this list could be invaluable.
AbrasiveReducer: Funny how complexity builds on complexity. You need a phone that can display your instruction manuals because feature creep has made it impossible to memorize everything in your camera's 350 page instruction manual.
Fair enough, but how about an article on the 10 things a photographer should never bring with them. I'll start. (1) A bag that could only be a camera bag (2) a camera strap that says NIKON or CANON in 2 inch high letters, (3) a 70-200/2.8 lens that's so heavy you can't walk, (4) a card or tag with your home address, (5) lens cleaners that prevent "fogging", (6) telextenders greater than 2X, (7) off-brand memory cards, (8) tripods & quick releases that use plastic at key points....
The advice about the business card is good. I've had to show mine to everyone from private security to federal marshals.
"(3) a 70-200/2.8 lens that's so heavy you can't walk"
Exaggerate much? How does a 1.5KG weight constitute immobility? Where is the logic in suggesting people *shouldn't* carry what is arguably the most capable, versatile lens ever created?
Robert Schambach: Sorry but a really useless article.
Robert, how, exactly is this a "useless" article? Seriously, don't just go lazily chucking such a comment out there, explain what you mean.
pictureAngst: Thank you, a really useful article
It is, and gave me a smug moment when I realised I already have everything listed in my bag, bar the small flash. :)
DotCom Editor: I'm excited to learn from this piece that I need neither camera nor lenses in my camera bag. It really lightens the load.
DotCom Editor, you're being ridiculous.
theoschela: anyone find the 5.2 Final's bug fix list?
"The bug with exports less that 1/3 size has been fixed. Major joy."
LR5 is now on my buy-list. :) That bug made it a major no-no before now.
RawDogg: I can't vote. I haven't used any that are listed. I feel as if you need to have used at least 2 of the listed cameras to give an honest vote, otherwise you're just voting for your favorite brand name.
Agreed, there should be a no-vote / see results option.
Robert Judelson: The Cannon 5D Mark 3 should win the Worst camera award
Yeah, convincing argument there...
Soo Yee Seong: Now people sell shortcut keys for money???This is crazy...
Lightroom & Photoshop are "mediocre" software?
The girl in the car seems to be reacting to the price. I concur. One way to make absolutely certain that people pirate your software... take the p*** with the price.
(unknown member): Just imagine how hot that lens will get outdoors under the sun. Yeeeouch!
marike6 : "And do you think painting metal white really makes a significant difference?"
Seriously? Are you really asking this question? It's basic physics. Want to know how the heat turbulence varies between the two without placing sensors inside a lens? Sit inside a black car with the windows up and no aircon for "X" amount of time in direct sunlight, then do the same in a white car. There's your answer.
