WayneHuangPhoto: Tamrac spelled backward is "Car mat"?
Habemus_Canon: "Rugged Looking" means "won't be mistaken for a woman's purse" so that a guy can feel comfortable carrying it.
We like to call it a Manbag.
Greg VdB: Outwardly, they look a lot like a schoolbag I had in the early nineties ;-)
I'm sure these are well made and perfectly good if you're after such a bag. Personally though, when I go into rugged terrain, I take my Lowepro Rover Pro 45L AW, which is half photo backpack - half trecking backpack, together with a holster type bag. This setup is much more practical I find than carrying a bag like the ones above (too annoying for serious hiking) + a normal backpack, or just a dedicated photography backpack (no room for trecking material).
The problem is anything designed for photography looks like a camera bag.
AV Janus: Just one problem... You must wait for that fly to come to you, and strike a pose holds still while you twist the focus and shoots...
Only if I'm on a fixed income and not payed by results or stuck on a deserted island with my gear...
If you want it enough you will make it happen.
kevlineuh: I'm curious about how is it possible to do focus stacking without tripod ? like Thomas Shahan.Anyway very good article.
Impossible unless you have hands made of stone.
RedDog Steve: Very impressive, nice work !
Will the state pick this up for promotional purposes ?
I know its made me think about going.
shaocaholica: Loved the compositions and colors but the speed was too fast even on some of the clouds. There should be some semblance of motion continuity.
I'm sure you are welcome to try your own version
Y_TANER: Every little move we make including the reason to kill those bees will be weighed in the balance of justice on the Day of Reckoning.
"Is it at all possible that God’s attribute of Preserver, which protects all things with the utmost order and balance, —things in the heavens and on the earth, on dry land and in the ocean, dry and wet, large and small, commonplace and exalted— and as it were, sifts their results by way of accounting — is it at all possible that this attribute should permit the deeds and acts of man, man who has been given the lofty disposition of humanity, the rank of the supreme vicegerency, and the duty of bearing the Supreme Trust, not to be recorded, not to be passed through the sieve of accounting, not to be weighed in the balance of justice, not to be punished or rewarded fittingly, even though his acts and deeds closely pertain to God’s universal dominicality? No, it is not in any way possible!" (The Collection of Risale-i Nur, The Words-The 10th Word-7th Truth)
Don't not kill a bee because god says no. Don't kill a bee because in your own free mind you know it is wrong.
Virvatulet: Could be an interesting niche product for special use. But only if it had some active means, like mass gyros, to stabilize its movement (especially rotational) during flight. And accelerometer optimizing algorithms to choose the right moment for shutter release for the required exposure time.
Without those I doubt this will have any impact whatsoever; could keep one parents' garage busy though...
You could alternativlt read the artical
wherearemyshorts: I do not believe in the cloud. That is the turnoff for me.
Trust me it does exist.
technicallyTony: I would give points to cameras using buttons and deduct points for a touch screen. How can you adjust from shot to shot if you need to take your eye off the viewfinder? According to the DP review, the low end Nikon produces better RAW images, works better in low light, and has a better build than the Canon, however the Canon with the clunky touch screen handles better. If playing with a touch screen is what you want in photography, use a phone. If spending some extra $$, I'd probably take the D5300, if saving, I'd take the SLT-A58. Yes the A58's EVF is worse in bright light but far better in dim light. Also for beginners, the EVF gives you "what you see is what you get", you know your exposure is close when looking at the scene in the viewfinder, some a graph in the corner of the viewfinder.
With my nose I could make the adjustments without moving my eye.
royston42: Are you sure these are snowflakes, and not just close ups of plastic items? They seem to "perfectly formed" to me, but then, I was ever a cynic.
Snowflakes are perfectly formed as are all cystals
marcmasschelein: When i read thes I don't think these are the answers or professional photographers who earns there living with photography, correction or not?
Dareshooter: The Costa Concordia is one of many wrecks not listed here and with good reason, the article is about a collection that was documented by four generations of a family business. What struck me is that most of the ships in this collection came to grief around Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
Very dangrous waters far more than its fair share of recks.
kevin_r: The fact that this camera is able to use all the glass from the past 50 years is a sure indication of how Nikon has ripped off its userbase.
They could have made it such that ALL NIKON AF cameras made up to now be able to use the older glass, but they chose to force their supporters to buy new lenses - if this is not greed then I don't know what is.
You can, you just have to use them manually. They took split path some time ago which helped the bodies shrink in size. This is regarded as a good thing. Don't like it buy one of the larger more expensive bodies.
molnarcs: This forum has become unreadable. It's basically a troll fest, with overwhelming negativity. Any attempt at intelligent discussion is drowned in the noise. There is a more intelligent discussion of the new Nikon at Canonrumors (!) than here.
I wish dpreview had a feature where the user name could link to a portfolio. At least we could see who are actually photographers and who are just coach photographers - looks like the majority are the latter :-/
I don't share my photos here but that does not make me a non photographer. Just somebody who does not share very well with other kids.
Allen Yang: I prefer Nikon D7100 to this!
Because it is Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark .
aandegoons: Nice looking large camera. Seems a bit expensive given it's limited photo and lens capabilities.
It would be nice if Olympus could release a camera that would not limit you to certain types of photography. Especially in this price range and size.
The only limit is your imagination
So the winner will be the person least needing of the workshop.
neo_nights: I think people are missing the MAIN point of the article: GET TO KNOW YOUR SUBJECT!
This article's tips can be easily transferred for any other kind of photography. Portrait photographers who get to know their models. Sports photographers who get to know the sport, the location and the athletes they're photographing. Street photography, when you know which time is best to get some pictures (better lighting, more/less people around) and so on.
This article is great and people should open their minds a bit more instead of b*tching "Oh, it's so easy to say those thing when you have a beautiful scenario so close from home".
Yes but if your subject looks like that you are on bonus points already.
