KonstantinosK: "...they've garnered plenty of attention since then...". Really?
Point is that it is hard to tell if 'out of stock' is due to low production or low production due to lack of consumer interest or high sales or some kind of combination. Not willing to judge the popularity of the camera or accept anyone else's judgment yet with such sparse facts.
If you actually click the link, Amazon shows "usually ships within 3 to 6 weeks.
kewlguy: I've been waiting for reviews and samples from the T6s but the images aren't really sharp here. The building photo taken with the 16-35 IS is unbelievably soft. Strong AA filter? bad lens sample?
Using DPP Viewer it shows that all but one focus point was lit up. So the photographer must have used 19 point automatic selection. This seems a poor choice for samples wanting to demonstrate sharpness. IMG_4680 with the 100 macro shows 10 af points lit up. Maybe all pics were taken in 19 point auto selection to show an average shooting experience.
to ProfHankDT6s is out of stock at Amazon, B&H Photo, Adorama, Best Buy, etc.Hmmmm...
Dragonrider: The tulip shot is a great image and also a perfect opportunity for a bracketed HDR shot. The result would have been awesome.
Rishi, thank you for your significant contributions to the technical depth of the DPR reviews and your very helpful sample images.
The dynamic range info/comparisons are quite useful.
So all that makes me greedy for even more info. There are quite a few rumors assuming that the 5DS/R will have improved color performance. Some mention a metamerism index as a way of comparing.
Is there any chance of including that or similar kinds of measures for color fidelity in the reviews? Or is that area just too full of witchcraft?
thejohnnerparty: LOL. This is so good. I am just shaking my head. Very nice.
Thanks for the compliment. Had fun taking and processing the shot. I'm just basically a tourist with a camera and get some lucky pics.
SamTrekker: This shot is so captivating with the Blues...
Thanks. It was a lucky capture that turned out ok.
JimW-203: Does the reptile need to be alive or can it be, for example, a man-made representation?
In order for the challenge host to see your question you need to post it on the challenge page. He will never see it posted under a single entry like this location.
fredphotog: Wow - how did you get no shake at 1/40th of a sec - in a helicopter? VR that good?
Complete luck with a Canon 20D and 17-40 non-is in 2005. Guess my hand shake offset the helicopter shake
(unknown member): I really liked this photo. I thought it was very creative and a bit different. I don't know why it did relatively badly in the voting (even worse than my entry!)
Thanks for your comment. It was an interesting sight to observe but certainly not a technically good photo or even particularly well composed with the distracting block shadows. It was eye catching for me and the memory of that evening stroll on Lake Geneva still lingers.
"The total entry limit is now set at 55, might slightly increase the limit if this challenge is well received." An increase to 175 redefines 'slightly'.
The great response to the theme warrants a series of challenges. I'm still happy to participate with an entry, but just less likely to vote in this staggeringly large challenge with lots of worthy entries.
Amazing capture just to get it in the frame in flight. Nice work. This critter must have been the inspiration for some Disney animated characters.
This will be a great service. Knowing that a lens has been expertly tested and adjusted provides some real comfort.
I had inquired at LensRentals about a year ago if they would sell lenses that they had tested to be 'above average' in performance among their copies and offered to pay a premium price. Like many others I would just like to avoid the hassle of evaluating 3-4 copies of a lens to find a keeper. This would be ideal, but I heartily welcome their new program.
Fun subject capture. Would benefit a lot from cropping, straightening, white balance, and saturation.
Wish you had cropped this. It is a great subject capture.
RuthC: Congratulations, poppyjk, on third place in 'A Stroll by the River or Lake' challenge. Each time I view this entry it makes me smile, and I wonder who is enjoying the stroll more, you or the buffalo? It is a really great capture, with beautiful colours, textures, light and shade, as well as the movement of buffalo, water and steam vents. Ruth :-)
Thank you, RuthC, for your colorful comment. We were completely awestruck by everything in Yellowstone. Glad to have made it once and hope to do it again. This was a thrilling scene and was preceded by 20 or so buffalo running past us 10 feet away when we were on the boardwalk to the Morning Glory Pool.
Tourlou: It's not a lobster. it's a well "langouste" in french.
Thanks for the clarification and education. I knew it was not like a Maine lobster with the big claws but did not know what to call it and was too lazy to do a search.
This is a great shot. Please put a border on it so it does not get disqualified.
