wh34erocoler: How about not thinking about yourselves and doing a portrait of loved one?

I think a lot of parents will have those figurines made of their children as gifts to the grandparents.

While I can't see myself getting the urge to have one made of myself, it's not much different from any other portrait that people have made of themselves or their loved ones, as you say.

It's actually quite neat, but may become a bit too much very fast if it gains nearly the same popularity as selfies - as technology improves and prices drop.

The way they demonstrate the difference in DoF between pictures taken at f/1.8 and f/11 is every bit as phony as their "Before-After" comparative images in DxO Optics Pro. By that I mean, they of all people know that DoF is the product of magnification and aperture, yet the two photos are taken at not just different apertures but at equally different magnifications:

And what happens the next time Apple decide to change their connector radically?

Nice - and it's not a problem that the propeller blades are "frozen".

In addition to what Maxmolly7 wrote, Europeans often cross their 7s, but never their 1s.

On Hold...hold...hold (1600x880) in the Damselflies, The Dainty Ones #2 challenge (4 comments in total)

Amazing sharpness and detail, perfect exposure, but perhaps cropped a bit too much.

Lovely picture, which could easily have been the winner.

Beautiful picture of a beautiful creature!

On Blue Damselfy in the Damselflies, The Dainty Ones #2 challenge (11 comments in total)

Superb!
Highly unusual portrait ... and an unusually co-oprative damselfly, even if they are generally less timid than dragonflies.

Beautiful sharpness and exposure. Bravo!

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2251 comments in total)
In reply to:

ageha: The lenses still look like designed by Panasonic...

To both of you: Which part of "bears a striking ressemblance" do you interpret to mean "looks identical"?

You mention cameras that have slant-sided grips, a single selector wheel and no built-in flash - and then say they look like the Leica T, but the NEX-7 doesn't ressemble it.

Get real, girls.

P.S.: It was ageha who brought "the whole NV series" into this debate, and chose one camera to illustrate it. I take it from your remark that the model in question was a poor choice, but it wasn't mine, so don't blame me for not knowing my NV series.

Even more seriously, if you can't see it, it's because you don't want to see it. The front face on the grips of those Samsungs' are angled, the front face on the grips of the NEX-7's and the Leica T's are parallel to the backs of the cameras

How you can begin to think that the Leica T looks even remotely like the Samsung NV series is beyond me.

The twin thumb wheels the position of the built-in flash (of which the Samsung has none), the general shape of the grip.
Here's a direct comparison with a Sony Alpha 6000, which is the spitting image of the NEX-7:

I haven't been able to find a similar picture with the NX-300, but I still don't think it looks more like the Leica T than the NEX-7 does. Quite the contrary.

Looking at the shape and the layout of the controls, it bears a striking ressemblance to the NEX-7.

In reply to:

roddigphot: I am far too busy taking pictures to argue about specification, so all I can say is currently the Gopro Hero 3+Black is the best action cam on the planet bar none

Well, that's now three months ago - and in the meantime Sony's HDR-AS100V has taken the title.

In reply to:

Xoom: It absolutely baffles me why there is no competing models from major brands like Nikon and Canon. I spent a week in Park City recently and I was absolutely amazed at how many people I saw wearing one of these things. As the compact market sinks, action cam market thrives... seems like a huge missed opportunity.

The streamlined shape of Sony's action cams is great, not only because of less wind/water resistance, but also because they don't attract a lot of intention. I'm not sure what to think about the change in colour from inconspicuous black to highly visibile white.

Rupert Bottomsworth: Interesting idea but ultimately, quite a boring video.

Just be glad that he chose the Danish postal service ... or the video might have been considerably longer.

sosmix: There is something wrong with people who enjoy killing animals. If you want to shoot animals, do it with a camera.

I for one will not be buying Nikon in the future and any wildlife photographer should consider Nikon's position on this issue very seriously.

I'm not a hunter - nor will I ever be one ... but while I have no Nikon gear, I certainly won't let their manufacturing of rifle scopes stand in the way of me buying, say, a Nikon D800E at some point in time.

On First Impressions: Metabones Speed Booster article (354 comments in total)

If a pretty unknown company, and not necessarily primarily an optical company, can develop and manufacture an adapter that good, imagine what Canon, Nikon, Sony etc. could do!

So: Why don't they?!

I'd grab that new 70-400 if only because it isn't silver any more. But I'm reluctant to buy more lenses after Sony changed their hotshoe.

If they think they can persuade me to change with them, they may find that I change from them.

ZAnton: Please, correct the name
"F4.5.6 G SSM" to "F4-5.6 G SSM"
Concerning lenses: Sony sells non IS lenses at the price of Canon/Nikon IS/VR lenses. Inbody IS gives at best - 2 stop, usually 0,5-1 Stop, whereas optical IS - at least 3 stop. So I don't think it is wise to get Sony at least at current prices.

Dream on, ZAnton. And move on.

On Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? article (1509 comments in total)

I wonder how Olympus fail to sell any significant number of SLRs, when the EM-5 is apparently the best camera of 2012.
