  • Since I can read your post I guess you are approved.
  • More like desperately thrashing around looking for a niche where they can compete successfully.  Resurrecting a bad idea from the past, the pellicle mirror, and stuffing a big sensor in a body to ...
  • Florida, Massachusetts and New York have laws prohibiting upskirt photography.  Some day Texas will join the twentieth century.  It is still far too soon for them to join the twenty first.
  • All that would be true if Adobe CC was an SAAS.  Fortunately it is not.  CC only uses the internet to periodically verify your subscription status and push upgrades and bug fixes.  It will go ...
  • Well yes, in the 1.2 crop mode you have 24 megapixels.  But with the same true focal length and distance, compared to an APS-C camera, that target comprises a lot more background and a lot less ...
  • The Nikon D810 and Canon 7D MkII are built for different applications.  The D810 is aimed primarily at landscape and portrait photographers who need maximum detail and lack of noise at low ISOs.  ...
  • 24 hour live tech support, constant stream of product improvements, not just bug fixes, and access to cloud storage.  Sounds like a service to me.  A service that costs me considerably less than ...
  • A camera body has so many nooks and crevices that it would be nearly impossible to disinfect without total submersion.  The lens will be even more problematic.  Consider putting the camera and ...
  • That definitively answers the question you posed in a prior thread.  Street photography as practiced by you is not ethical.
  • I can talk and write without a camera.  Photography is just one of many means of expression. The public  believes that one can do almost anything in Photoshop.  Those that refuse to believe your ...
  • I would not agree.  It is an enjoyable pastime and for some of us a means to earn a living.  To give photography the same importance as rights such as life and liberty only serves to diminish ...
  • Agreed!
  • The only rights you have are those you can secure for yourself or those that the society you live in grants you.  Photography is of little importance compared to other "rights" such as life and ...
  • Red Rock Canyons is right outside of Vegas and Valley of Fire is an easy drive to the north.  Not technically a ghost town but the collection of old stuff in Nelson, NV is a photographers delight.
  • Replied in It's a toy
    Yet you need to tape a sunny 16 chart to your camera back?  Seriously? Comparable to any DSLR lens?  Digital cropping to 1.25mpx renders an image with decent image qualiity?  Beware the flying pigs! ...
  • Replied in Zero Interest
    Printed my first black and white image in 1957.  Sold my last film camera in 2010 since I hadn't shot with it since 2002.  Absolutely no desire to take a step backward.
  • Agreed, having a choice of many different perspectives complicates choosing what one best serves the image.  The same can be said for how all those different shutter speeds and f/ stops complicate ...
  • Nikon rates the D300S shutter mean time between failures as 150,000 actuations.  This is typical for pro-sumer DSLRs.  Depending on your luck it could fail after 1 actuation or 300,000.  Clearly, ...
  • We call that field or angle of view. You should know that. Certainly you can. It is the difference between someone with knowledge, experience and the ability to visualize in three dimensions and ...
