  • Why not do a RAW on both?
  • PM me your email address and we can sort out the details...
  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    @EricCul - great to hear about the D810. I like to think I've also produced a lot of great work with my D800 - it's not like it NEVER hits... I use it basically any image I have time to set up,...

    It's the AF is fast, no doubt... and great when it works... but it's simply off at a rate that's unacceptable. I've personally used the D800 since it came out, had it sent to Nikon a few times (no...

    To be fair, DPR said this: "The D800's low light focusing ability is impressive, among the better performing cameras we've seen" of the D800 ... and it's widely regarded as having one of the worst...

    Agreed, AONT. AF inaccuracy was the Achilles heel of the D800 ... has it been fixed with the D810?

  • Stable enough for what?  For copying files to your hard drive from a card reader?  It'll be fine... Haven't you tried it?
  • Replied in Whoa...
    .... calm down. No one said regulation is a horrid idea or that UAV's shouldn't be done safely.  All I was pointing out was that we've had RC aerial vehicles for decades and no one cared until 1) ...
  • It's basically an RC quadcopter.  No one had any problems with them until people started calling them 'drones' and the military started using them....
  • Seriously, FW800 is 4 generations back in FireWire technology. ... and FireWire, itself, was declared dead by it's main supporter, Steve Jobs, in 2008. ...
  • Wouldn't that depend on the commission and the event? Not to speak for him -- but I believe he's saying he shoots what he needs to shoot to produce the results required for a given event.
  • National Geographic photographers (widly regarded as some of the best in the world) routinely shoot thousands and thousands of images for only a handful that make the cut. Again... the number of ...
  • What makes you equate lots of frames with "spray and pray"? Shooting lots of frames doesn't equate to "not knowing what you are doing".  I'm not sure why you have that incorrect equivalency in your ...
  • I HATE this mindset.  Especially when it comes to weddings. To stick with the analogy... in the end, your goal is to kill someone.  If you can do it faster, day-of, by firing 3 bullets from a ...
  • To be fair in relation to the OP -- limiting to that size also ensures that no one sees them take up much more than 1/4 of their screen (HD screens being 1920x1080)
  • Their ability to print a reasonable file is limited by the fact you are giving them a 1080 x ~680 pixel image.... it has NOTHING to do with the DPI you set.   In fact, almost any modern printer is ...
  • What does setting the DPI matter in any way?  It's completely meaningless... you can have a 10x15 pixel image at 300dpi and it'll make a horrible 4x6 ... or you can have a 2400x3000 pixel image at ...
  • To be blunt:  Yes. 1) An image (file) is no longer simply a means to an end (print).... but, instead, is now the desired end product in-and-of itself.  Relying on future reproduction-to-print sales ...
  • Agreed. I don't mean to insult... but the fact of the matter is an entry-level Pentax camera is not /generally/ what one thinks of when they think of a use case for AA batteries on a professional ...
  • Which is why I said I'm sorry about my assumption.  I assumed most pros wouldn't use an entry-level camera from an off-brand. Cycle lifespans and the value of a battery are extremely dependent on ...
