  • BCwipe is another software package that will do secure erasing for you. As someone else pointed out, it is a question of what resources an attacker can bring to bear on your disk. You can erase ...
  • It isn't that much bigger, but it looks like it crosses the level of "too big for my pants pocket", and for me, that's a different category. If it doesn't fit in my pants pocket, it's competing ...
  • As a part time introvert who also really doesn't want to be an introvert, photographing humans is ideal. It's like interacting with people, but in a way that doesn't use up any of my energy for ...
  • I think that's an important thought. Find images you like, and make the best copy you can. Figure out what techniques went into it and learn to copy it, then make images like it. As you accumulate ...
  • The answer is in the question. Your style is something you find, over time. And it changes over time. In order to find it, you have to shoot, edit, and display enough photos for that style to ...
  • Replied in maybe?
    I think solar roads and self-driving cars are a much more likely future than flying cars now. It's a shame we won't get that retro-future, but, oh well, what we do get is pretty cool too. A ...
  • Replied in maybe?
    It's a glorified townhouse. But displaying on a screen means a single image is on display at any given moment. Cycling through them is nice, but, that's a lot of bare wall space. It is 2014 and we ...
  • Replied in maybe?
    Only useful if they sell the new displays for less than $50 each. I have 10 segments of wall on the main level of my home with some sort of picture on them, between 1 and 5 images per wall ...
  • I would say that an 85mm lens on a 1.6 crop camera would be too tight for most of the action. A boxing ring is less than 25 feet across. You would need to be shooting the diagonal to get a full ...

    But what need does full frame fill for you?
  • Replied in Jumping ship
    What is it that your current camera can't do for you? Reading the thread, it sounds like you need a new lens or two more than a new camera, and maybe a class or a book. Some good advice that I got ...
  • I think a modular camera could have some interesting possibilities. You could have a larger processing unit you carry, but don't access much, with a variety of wireless input/output devices. You ...
  • You say that like it's a bad thing.
  • Another vote for a sling. I use the blackrapid sport something or other. I shoot events that have me carrying my camera for 8 - 10 hours, and a neck strap would be totally unworkable.
  • Replied in Nice . . .
    Some of those body shots are just brutal. The punishment those guys take is scary sometimes. It takes something special to step into the ring or cage, and even more so to do so as a sportsman, ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Muay Thai
    Photographing these guys makes me want to go to the gym.
    Placed 19th in the challenge. Photographing these guys makes me want to go to the gym.
  • Created discussions TCB 8 - Muay Thai
    Here are some shots from a Muay Thai event I shot this weekend in Chantilly Va. These events are amazing for the action, and for the emotion. This is a crop into a larger image, to show the detail ...
  • Replied in Boxing Tips
    Yeah, dark clothing so as not to stand out. You aren't part of the show. In my regular life I never wear all black, at fights, that's all I wear. I usually shoot MMA, but ocasionally Muay Thai, ...
  • Sorry, was only looking at number for the 24-70 2.8
  • The 24-70 is 805g the 24-105 is 670g, according to Canon. I have the older version of the 24-70, which is 953g. I use the heavy older model as my walk around and the weight is fine, so long as a ...
