On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2709 comments in total)
In reply to:

jedy: I don't know why Canon cling onto the high end dslr aps-c camera, even with the sports and wildlife argument. Lots of photographers I know have either gone full frame or mirrorless rather than buying an expensive aps-c dslr. I do believe mirrorless cameras will improve and lens choices will get better and this seems more like the natural home for the aps-c sensor. Canon should be looking more seriously at mirrorless cameras as they are bound to threaten the dslr dominance as technology improves and more with full frame sensors appear. I'm sure there'll be plenty of gear whores eager to get their 'newer' and 'better' fix who will buy this though.

I agree that mirroless cameras will improve, however how long will it take for them to produce a quality long lens--that is, in the 400 to 600mm range? And how long will it take for them to get the focus tracking act together?
Also--look at the latest m43 40-150mm lens from Olympus--if you check out the size and weight, you will see there is very little advantage over non-mirrorless kits

On Adobe launches Lightroom for iPad post (131 comments in total)

I already have a photo editing app on my tablet that edits raw files and does nearly everything LR does. It's called Photo Mate R2 and only cost $9.50. It's a pay once stand alone program that actually works pretty darn good.

Adobe's app priced at $99.00--Photo Mate R2 app for Android is $9:00--a great app for photo editing-does raw files and all--Adobe's pricing goes according to script--that is exorbitant!

Wonderful shots--Polar Bear shot is awesome. Thanks for posting. It's hard to imagine the time, patience and dedication needed to get shots like these. Kudos to all the photogs in this series.

On Just Posted: Nikon D7100 in-depth review article (397 comments in total)

Hmmm...a gold award for a $1200 DLSR that shooters of sports/action and/or wild life--as in birds of flight, etc--can not realistically shoot in raw mode because of the buffer limitations?

Something does not compute for me here. The buffer limitations is a total deal breaker for me. Should it now be known that the 7100 is just for still photography?

On Tamrac Evolution 9 Photo Backpack Review article (106 comments in total)

Ahh--something missing with this backpack--A hip belt. A hip belt. A hip belt.

Also, cannot imagine carrying a decent tripod in the position shown in the first photo--Pack would be bouncing around all over the place while walking or hiking.
