  • If I have to choose between touch screen and joystick, I want the joystick controller. I can use that while looking through the viewfinder and don't have to hold the camera out from my body.

  • Car analogies for cameras are always tricky. I think the focus system is better compared to the suspension. Cars with much less horsepower can get a better time on a twisty track due to vastly...

  • Lacks identity? It's a sports camera, just like it's dad. It has a very clear identity. We have to see how that autofocus systems works in the field to find out if its worthy, but lack of identity...

  • I would love to see a 1dmk5. It's not going to happen, but if it did, I would go bleeding edge and pre-order. The 1dx price tag is a lot to swallow coming from the mk4, but a mk5 price tag, with...

  • My main camera lives in it's bag, in the cabinet attached to my desk. I can have it out in under two minutes, if I feel the need, usually. Ocasionally if I had a big event and did a ton of ...
  • Good reference. A lot of wheels being re-invented here.
  • The original question included selling the drives. Once you have hit it with the big magnet or the blow torch, you can't sell it.
  • Replied in CCleaner
    "Wipe free space" is probably doing a secure erase on the slack space on your hard drive. I haven't used ccleaner in a long time, but I believe that it has plenty of options for how and what to ...
  • 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 ...
  • Replied in Jumping ship
    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 ...
