  • There might be something to this.

    Although I would like to get a new body to replace my D300, right now this LX100 is the piece of kit that looks most useful to add to my bag.

  • If I were looking to replace my camera, I would get the 750 in favor of the 810 or 610.

  • Similar to the higher model NISSIN flashes. BAsically it obsolves you of having to dink with a flash card rubber-banded to your flash to get a little fill light directly at your subject when...

  • Oh... 8 whole TB... Why that would require someone carrying two whole, separate 4TB USB3 drives over from their offsite storage area. Why that would be almost 5lbs to carry. Of course it would...

  • What if you accidentally hit the delete button?

    What if the place you have it stored burns down?

    RAID is not a backup plan. It is just a feel good strategy that the march of technology has made...

  • Agreed. Things like Drobo once had a place for some people... maybe.

    But the reality is that a person could get completely redundant (and separable) backups, based on open interface standards (not...

  • Has anyone yet to see a "sample" picture, from any of these companies touting their selective depth of field cameras, that are actually compelling pictures?

    That's my biggest issue. Every image...

  • I can't believe there's a bunch of dinks on the internet calling anything having to do with WWII a "sideshow." Or trying to measure out and thus put down the merits of anyone involved in that...

  • Commented on Quick Review: That Steady Thing article

    I struggle to come up with too many scenarios where a regular monopod, as well as my camera pack, can't offer similar flexibilities/constraints.

    Rest the monopod mounted camera itself against the...

  • After lugging a Nikon D300 with a couple of lenses around recently to take pictures of the kids while on vacation, a small camera with SLR-like focus and general reflexes is starting to sound a lot...

  • @NetMage

    Yes, it is completely different. With all those things you mentioned, if you don't want to upgrade them you can happily continue using them as is.

    With this, Adobe wants to raise the...

  • Even if they did say it was the standard price, nothing is topping them from increasing that "regular price" 6 months down the road.

  • This just in... No photographer in the history of the internet lost out on real money by people P-shopping watermarks off of low res thumbnails already posted to the internet.

    You can argue that...

  • Agree.

    Looked through his portfolio, not that impressive honestly.

    Not saying I could do better, but certainly not something to "strive for" either.

    As you said, if you're looking for...

  • This is the epitome of form mattering more than function.

    When you can get more functionality from kits already available on the market for less money and that use decent sized, readily available...

  • Exactly what the world needs. Even more uninspiring pictures of poorly posed people, taken in flat light, with their ears and noses completely blurred.

  • With my Kata backpack, I have become accustomed to resting it on the tops of my feet while swapping lenses. With the zipper open just far enough to access the compartments, but not far enough to...

  • Replied in Vigilantism...
    Where did I encourage anything to be done in photoshop? Perhaps you should take a bit of time to understand the terms I used, and at what point in the workflow they are relevant. Another forum ...
