On 1939: England in Color (part 1) article (220 comments in total)

The most interesting photos here show us what life was like 75 years ago. The timeless ones are as meaningless as they are timeless, because they can be retaken better even now. The best people photos capture genuine spirit of people, place, and time.

I'd like to see Oak Alley win Grand Prize.

On In photos: 'Paris in the Springtime' article (69 comments in total)

One comment laments that similar photos are no longer legally possible. The greater lament is that these photos are only barely technically possible. When these shots were taken, Paris was a French city. Now, Paris is an African & Asian city.

By "little action bricks", you mean "cameras"?

ProfHankD: GoPro has been doing a really nice job on these and I think the key interesting feature is that these are now really top performers in terms of wireless tethered control. For example, my Sony A7, which DPReview praised for its wireless performance, still frequently drops & remakes the wireless connection when shooting as commanded by my cell phone from 10 feet away... not cool. Let's hope that makers of cameras with bigger sensors notice that the bar for wireless control has been raised.

Since the D3200 is for beginners, I'm even more glad to be going with the Canon Rebel T4i, because I'm no beginner.

On Canon EOS M Preview preview (546 comments in total)

And by "mirrorless", you mean point and shoot? I'm scanning through pages and pages here on DP, trying to find out what the difference between "mirrorless" and point and shoot is. Apparently, just a psychological marketing distinction based on a premium price.

Joe, give your cameras to the nearest child. ANY child will do for making the world a more beautiful place.

Plastek: Hotshoe on a compact that you can hide in your hands.

Am I suppose to hold a thing like that by flash gun, or a camera?
People asking for a hotshoe on something this size should smash their heads into a wall.

Because cameras are getting smaller, we must now forgo creative lighting?

Usually, people who utilize only available light don't yet understand how to use strobes. So I say learn to love the hot shoe so you'll at least have more options.

On Elliott Erwitt looks for fun in photo sequences article (34 comments in total)

You know what would be great? Take a bunch of pictures and play them back in sequence quickly. so you can see the motion. And maybe even record sound while you're shooting. wait... oh...

What seriously drives me crazy is when a sports photographer shows pictures in a sequence and also tries has explain what was happening at that time.

The best pictures stand on their own based on what we see in the frame.
