On article Readers' Showcase: Phil Garcia (71 comments in total)

This excellent advice deserves repeating, and applies to anyone who ventures into the outdoors, not just photographers:

"Let the animal determine the distance, never follow it when it leaves and most importantly, as my friend Ester would say: 'Don't feed the foxes!' What that generally means is 'Don't interfere in the animal's life, just look at it.'"

Elandreth: So what you're saying is: if I buy a Nikon 5100, it will make me a better photographer?

I have to do it myself? Well then I guess my D5100 will be put away alongside my Shake Weight and Axe Body Spray.

On article DPReview is hiring! Software development manager (109 comments in total)
In reply to:

StrokerAce23: So I work on something that's critical to people in their day to day life (money) with millions of users. I've torn down a couple of huge applications and introduced and replaced several mobile apps. I was also a cold-calling sales guy for nearly a decade.

I've become pretty resilient over the years. Lots of rejection and accusations of conspiracy and calls for my job and/or head (for something like moving a button).

That's all to say I'm pretty sure I'd still be driven to drink if my fellow dpreview readers were my users. Talk about herding angry cats when it comes to developing a single experience for everybody. Good luck to the team and the sucker err.... highly qualified individual you find.

No need to use euphemisms any more Jeff; pot is perfectly legal now!

rsf3127: I am speechless about this mirrorless system.

And yet, you're still able to comment?

"...they also offer a twin head macro flash unit, which we think looks quite a bit like an alien on top of a camera."

I wonder if flash units made on other planets look like a human on top of a camera.

On article CP+ 2016: DPReview behind-the-scenes (37 comments in total)

What a brilliant idea by Canon to have gymnasts at their show stand! Much better than the usual pretty faces just standing around. It's relevant for the upcoming Olympics, and a great way to test some camera features!

Perfect for those who practice tantric photography.

After reading about all the gear at CP+, next to be cut in half is my bank account.

Elandreth: What a screwy lens!

...There, now all of you debating word choice can eviscerate my comment.

I get nauseous every time I read the DPR comments section.

idefixx: what a boring "feel good" interview. other sites would list this under "sponsored content"

Actually, other sites would list this under "link to www.dpreview.com". Otherwise, it would be plagiarism.

In reply to:

aftab: I wonder how many units they will have sell to make this camera profitable.

The decimal point and comma are switched in different parts of the world. So, "fifty thousand" is written as 50,000 in the US, but as 50.000 in many other places. And Pi would be written as 3.14 in the US vs 3,14 in some other parts of the world.

In reply to:

papa natas: Well, I'll get hell back here from the teeming millions on account of what I think, and by the way, I NEVER write OMHO.. I'm not humble.
1- It's stupid to ass-u-me that we ALL have converted to 4K. That goes to whomever had the brilliant idea to post this video in 4K.
2- This Hurley guy, of which I never seen his work, may have or be rough talent. Then, I cannot help but to reminisce the Old talent: those guys such as Hamilton, Adams, Leidmann, Clarke, Newton, and the list goes on, who were issued from the Plastic Arts & Visual Media environment; then came to discover photography with MANUAL cameras.
They had to LEARN the trade the good old way: to master composition, f stop and shutter speed with a narrow window of 36 shots. Nowadays it will be a capital sin not to get a dozen of decent images out of 500 shots. It's like shooting fish in a barrel, mind you.
For these guys Bokeh wasn't an artistic expression.

Can I have a banana too?

In reply to:

thx1138: Poor choice of name for something that is supposed to repel everything. The Hoya Repulsion would have been more apt.

I call BS on the anti-fingerprint though, every company and their dog claims to have oleophobic coatings and none work worth a damn. Time will tell.

If you want a name that exemplifies the ability to repel everything, how about the Hoya Lutefisk? Or Hoya Congress, Hoya Kardashian...
