is this taken in Edinburgh? It looks similar to some places down the bottom of The Mile :)

On article JPEG Committee contemplates adding DRM to image format (186 comments in total)

A wise man said;

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

I see this idea as being exactly the same as Einstein stated above.

The Royal Aircraft Establishment was doing this in the mid '70s in their supersonic wind tunnel - I know as I actually witnessed some of the tests that were done and saw the photographs of the shock waves that were produced.

Another one for the Brits :)

VENTURE-STAR: This is just the kind of totally idiotic nonsense which makes you realize that the EU is a complete waste of space and it's politicians are largely out of control. It should never have been allowed to become anything more than a common market.

Laws that are not enforced today, may well be vigorously used tomorrow.

We've already seen some very aggressive interference with perfectly legitimate photography in the UK by over-zealous police, supposedly implementing anti-terrorist legislation and company security staff, who have no legal authority whatsoever.

Everyone's rights are being chipped away with every week that passes and you have ask the question, is Cavada a total retard with nothing better to do, or what?

Maybe I will be able to copyright my own appearance, so it becomes an offense to use any video recordings of me made by the police or any other official body for any purpose without my consent!

You have a very strange, adversarial and provocative manner to all of the replies that you make, hardy the mark of a person that claims to travel on a UN Passport.

I suppose that there will always be some rotten fruit in any barrel.

It is only in your dreams that this would happen in London - assuming this is where you mean.

It has always been legal to take pictures from public spaces within the UK and the police know this.

If you were arrested then it was not for taking pictures, it is also highly unlikely that anyone is arrested in this fashion, it happens like this in the movies but not in real life and not in London.

Tried to contact them to find out why this does not work with D7000 and every email address they have on their website bounces the mail.

Anyone know why it doesn't work with D7000 and quite a few other cameras.

WIMorrison: I like the layout, can it also be made iPad friendly like the old site by including hyperlinks on the screen for keyboard shortcuts? I don't have a keyboard to press F to return to the forum and this is very annoying at the bottom of a long series of posts as I have to scroll all the way back to the top :(

Thanks - will it also stop my screen getting covered with previews of posts that I have opened?

This is not available on the Kindle, despite what it says :(

Not good when two Amazon companies don't speak to each other, or check what they are saying.

On article Variation Facts and Fallacies (230 comments in total)

An excellent article which is entirely objective, and proves fairly succinctly that the subjective comments about lenses posted in the forums are essentially bunkum.
