On BPG image format aims to replace JPEGs article (206 comments in total)

I've been shooting jpegs most of my pro career. I have never once had a problem with "jpeg artifacts". I've sold 24"x30" and have seen larger made from jpegs. They look fantastic. And yes, I shoot raw as well if I feel it is needed so lets not start that stupid amateur argument.

Maybe this is aimed at pixel peepers because I've yet to hear anyone really complain all that much about the look of a jpeg image. Ever!

I'm sad to read this. I love my 58 AF. It's "auto" setting is more accurate than any ETTL on my Canon 600EXRT! And even it's own ETTL. I mean it's like 95% dead on!! Pretty sad when an old school "auto" flash setting beats some new fangled ETTL system that is rarely accurate. If ever.

It's a shame more people don't give them a try. Canon's flashes have never been anything great. Nikon can't seem to make anything right the first time out. They just get it out there then create a x10 version.

photolando: I rarely hear anyone boast about GPS. Who cares? But they put GPS in the 7DII and no Wi-Fi?? IN TODAY'S world!?? I need wi-fi A LOT more than I will EVER need GPS. I don't ever need GPS. I switched from Nikon to Canon years ago because of cmos v ccd. I may go back now. FF 24 MB, tilting monitor, and wi-fi for $500 more with the new 750? Convince me to stay with Canon.

Don't you love it when ignorant people who know nothing about you call your images rubbish? Been a pro for 28 years and shoot a lot of corporate events. Shot commercial for 10 years for very well known brands. I never use FB or ANY social media.

So I buy the wifi "option: and guess what? I'm up to the price of the 750. And I get more MBs, FULL FRAME, a tilting monitor, still get my wi-fi.

All I was hoping for in the new 7D was wifi and a tilting monitor. As a corporate event shooter a tilting monitor would have been great to be able to see the screen as I hold the camera overhead. And it's a feature in less expensive Canon models. Almost ALL of them. But they can't put it in the 7D?

CF AND SD?? Twin SDs (again 750 feature) would have been better. Now I need to still buy both? Come on. Really? Either twin CF or twin SD. CF cards are on the way out. Have been for awhile now.

On Beginner's guide: shooting high-key at home article (69 comments in total)

Nice shots but not one of them is "high key". Subjects on a white background? Yes. High Key? No.

Next item? The HackxTack Finder. In case you lose your HackxTack. Which is probably sitting right next to your lens cap. Ha!

I'm just curious. Does not some copyright issues apply here? I realize perhaps all of the original photographers are dead but I can't imagine the current copyright holders of say Karsh's Einstein or Churchill would agree to such a thing. I see some are available for purchase as prints or posters! Really?

This person got a license to not only sell these original works of art but was allowed to change them?

I know everyone on here (and every other photo forum) has a hissy fit when they post about others retouching their work. And we're a bunch of nobodies! lol
