stromaroma: Why didn't they use a hasselblad like last time they went to the moon? Oh wait, they didn't go to the moon, it was a hoax!

Actually humans went to the Moon several times, not just one. Stop being ignorant conspiracy theorist and learn.

ybizzle: Remember the good ol' days when you didn't have to worry about this crap and just buy any old 64MB SD card for your 2mp Kodak digicam? I miss 2002...

It's rather simple. You find what you want to shoot. Then you buy a capable camera. Then you buy a storage for that camera. The End. It's not like you are buying cards every day.

Steve Balcombe: @dpreviewer - if you've had a hands-on with this camera and lens hopefully you can answer a question for me: is the new lens focus-by-wire like the STM? I'm hoping MF is mechanical but I fear it might not be...

It says NANO USM.

maboleth: All I know is that I'm still using Exposure 5 much more than E7, because they ruined the user interface.

Thanks for your support here, I appreciate it.

While the whole E7 application seems bigger and a bit clumsier, two things annoys me the most:
1. User presets were always fully listed with thumbnails in E5. Not so in E7 - they always fold.
2. Before/after - to see the effect, before and after, in E5 you click anywhere in the image, in E7 you have to press dedicated button to do the same.

Thanks.

I couldn't care less for ice climbing, but the footage is so good, I never seen a better usage of drones. Some amazing photography right there, frames and closeups. Breathtaking!

maboleth: Do you REALLY, REALLY think he set the bride on fire for real? Gawd, Beavis & Butthead, hello, is that you?

Sadly, yes. I caught several posts. Some even complained how setting her on fire was very dangerous and reckless.

I cannot buy Adobe photography pack in Serbia for 10$/m. Creative cloud is restricting its content and is only available in certain countries, all with different prices. How uncool is that?

Adobe, say the price you want - 10$, 20$, 100$, whatever. Make up your mind. But it's up to clients whether they will buy it or not. But restricting the content with prices that vary from country to country is just rude and greedy.

You lost another customer who is forced to stay on the pirated PS & LR. Forced by you.

Papi61: So, the "generation selfie" will now have selfie "stamps" all over their body. Just when you thought nothing could top their narcissism...

I used to think that Beavis & Butthead were mocking young and extremely dumb American youth. But now Beavis & Butthead seem like a decent blokes with a weird sense of humour, compared to this Selfie generation of facebookers.

On article Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review (1317 comments in total)
In reply to:

maboleth: Dpreview said that autofocus was lighting fast. But how precise is it, compared to 7D?
In my three years of experience, 7D can miss a focus quite often. It depends on the lens, true, but as much as I love this camera, I can't say I'm in love with its AF, far from it. I learned to use it well, but that's that.

So how precise is 7D MK2? If AF is much better, it's totally worth the price in my opinion.

Thanks Karl, that's what I wanted to hear. :)

On article Canon EOS 7D Mark II: Real-world samples (beta) (268 comments in total)

As I already said, noise in 7D II looks more like a film grain, which is very very nice. There's no banding in the deep shadows. And these are JPEGs, the possibilities of the RAW will be endless.

On photo Extreme Biking in the world Bicycle challenge (4 comments in total)

Photo is action packed, no doubt about that, but that little retouched triangle on the bottom right side kind of ruins it. I have nothing against removing and editing things that aren't needed, I do it myself all the time, but this looks like "hey, you removed the ramp/hill right there." Take a little more care with retouching and all will be good and believable. :)

SeeRoy: One wouldn't have suspected that the Chinese government were capable of something this witty.

It won't be too long, as the world's population goes on expanding, with the level of consumption ramping up (as required by the prevailing economic model), before they'll have to put up posters of the current pollution levels to remind people what a paradise has been destroyed.

Population growth. Maybe a few wind farms will help.

While I agree that current economic model is horribly wrong, it's not how many people could fit the states or square per meter. What's destroying this planet, besides this "economic model" are the needs of those people that could "fit the state of Texas" and their total egoistical manners.

Just one human can exploit thousands and thousands of forest acres, pollute the very land and waters just to be able to satisfy the demand of the few.
Unfortunately, the population is so extremely high with everyone thinking about material satisfaction goodies that I cannot see how any positive change in the economic world could change the lifestyle of the majority. Nothing, except the big catastrophes, be it natural or human induced.

In reply to:

babalu: I think the intention and the angle are excellent .. pity however that the photo is slightly off focus, as if it needed an image stabilizer .. or is this a large crop?

Great funny image. It's not out of focus, rather that lens couldn't reproduce the sharpness throughout the whole image.
