On Beyond the table top: 5 mini tripods reviewed article (137 comments in total)
In reply to:

nicktinbc: I have found a bean bag far more useful than an mini-tripod. Much easier to use on irregular surfaces. And all it costs if you make it yourself is a few split peas and a bit of cloth!

does your beanbag stick to lamp posts then and support the camera?

nandbytes: Why should anyone buy this instead of picking up the original for a lot cheaper on eBay?

On Opinion: Did Sony just do the impossible? article (1053 comments in total)
In reply to:

EssexAsh: i'll wait for Nikon to license the sensor.

im sure my 810 will still be taking half decent shots by then though. The trouble is the lenses, bodies are ten a penny and lose value instantly. You buy into a lens system more than a body system. I cant afford to swap them out for dubious sony lenses. And who really wants adaptors in the middle of everything.

pretty tedious set but i like the scale of 6

such a shame they have these crappy little sensors. I'll stick with real medium format, 6x6 and 6x7 film.

Can their software actually load up a tiff file yet? something MS Paint can do effortlessly but their software seems to struggle with.

BarnET: So more or less a XE-2 with a hump in the middle instead of the viewfinder on the side.
makes room for 1 more dial which is always nice. Means less digging in menu's in general.

Unlike the XE-2 it does have a tilty-screen albeit at a lower resolution.
I like the rangefinder body more. unless it has that massive viewfinder.

and all the firmware updates that the xe-2 will no longer get.

On Phase One's Capture One Pro 8.2 software now available article (83 comments in total)

will it actually load in TIFF files yet? from scanned in negatives. Earlier versions couldn't handle something as simple as that (Windows Paint manages it fine!) which put me off using it.

excellent advert for his triggers but lets see the several hundred he binned to be left with these lucky ones.

On Astropad turns iPad into drawing tablet for Mac post (117 comments in total)

"Astropad turns THE iPad into A drawing tablet for THE Mac"

The continued mangling of the language carries unabated. You would think people who claim to be journalists would have the basic understanding of grammar.

In reply to:

BeaverTerror: The first as of yet unreleased products to become available will be the 90 and 16mm lenses, not the teleconverter. Did the writer of this article even look at the map?

your bizarrely low grasp of English seems to have failed you

"The chart released indicates that a 1.4x teleconverter will be the first of the new products to become available in the second half of this year"

the important bit being "first of the new products" this is an article about those new products. Im sure even one with as little a grasp of the language as you can work the rest out. Or maybe not. *shrug

Any idiot can just keep stuffing pixels onto a sensor. The sony sensor still makes this one look like the joke that it is.

Hugo808: The mega pixel wars are still going? I thought everyone had grown up and realised that more MPs don't mean a better picture - just a bigger one.

Still, I suppose there's only so many increases in ISO quality or focus points you can make to entice people to buy the new models so it's back to the old standby. I'm sure enough people will fall for it to make it worthwhile.

Computer manufacturers must be rubbing their hands together with glee though, my creaking old Windows 7 machine wouldn't like processing RAW files from this...

i think a lot of people do.

Esign: Gloomy, boring, predictable – except for the horse, but this shot is unbalanced and should have been cropped and the horse placed slightly to the right of a vertical center line. Don’t mind the backgrund, this is a horse portrait.

thats the generic comeback from every knuckle dragging armchair nobody on here. kudos to you.

how lucky we are on DPR to have so many world leaders in photography who can add their sage knowledge to these threads.

LionelA: In the 80s 90s commodore and atari fanboys where always discusing whose the best while PCs (which were horrible computer compare to the others) took the business sector then the homebase one, both atari and commodore went out of buisness....remainds me of sony, canon, nikon etc...always discusing whose the best without knowing that apple and samsung are taking over the market....first the cellphone market then the camera one indeed......and lets get real as tecnology moves on it wont get any better for camera companies

in 20 years my D800 will still take great pictures (if it hasnt broken), the games on my Amiga A1200 are a bag of crap.

more tired old small sensor bodies. Don't Fuji realise they might have enough of them on the market now?
