On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1666 comments in total)

1. How about a radio trigger that has an infrared focus-assist beam that works with the 600 EX RT ? At a reasonable price?
2. How about a 1DX that does not need to be cleaned every time it's used
3. Bracketing to change from Spot, Eval and Center weighting lighting for the new IDX
4. Ability to use multiple point white balance in the same frame like Pentex in the new IDX
5. 12 fps at 24 MP's in the new 1DX
6. Built in radio control of external flashes in the the NEW 1DX
7. Wi-Fi or BT to dump files to external hard drives in the New 1DX
8. Increase to 64 cross points for AF in the new 1DX
9. Ability to see our RAW files vs. JPEGS in our LCD screens on the NEW 1DX
10. A Canon CPS Center or Drop Off Center in New York City where there are 1000's of professional photographers and media companies
11. Ability for the NEW 1DX to auto MA/MFA with Canon L Lenses

How about a functioning Mirror Box for a 1DX. Any innovation there?

Or just more oil, debris and focusing issues?

Aghhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!

On G7X-ISO125-IMG_0050 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (5 comments in total)

I saw a lot of over exposure too. But is it exposure, contrast, whites? Or as with the portraits of people is it OVER luminescence in the reds and oranges?

I notice these most with shots of people. I'm sure you can compensate for this but why?

Most buy a point and shoot to take pictures of people IMHO. The camera should be optimized for this or at least do it right.

How about posting some setting so those of us who use 7D's and 1DX's can compare. Focusing modalities and metering. Without this these pictures are worthless

On Kitesurfing Views from Below in the Get High or Get Low challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

mike schm: For what its worth, I gave you a 4. It meets the challenge requirements, the subject is tack sharp and exposure is good. So why 10 of the 16 votes submitted gave it scores under 3.0 baffles my mind. I like this one better than your other kite surfing entry in this challenge. I guess surfers see things differently. When I look at this photo, I see the rider is focused on where he is going to land and is planning out his next move while following through a jump with a tail grab.

Thanks Mike. For me... as back lit, fast moving subjects these shots take some amount of skill to shoot. Shooting a building would bore me to death. Thanks for the note! All the best to you.

On Get High or Get Low challenge (8 comments in total)

I like to get low below my subjects when I shoot sports in the water and when they fly in the air. This is a fun challenge. :)

On Extreme sports photography challenge (3 comments in total)

To me kitesurfing or kiteboarding is indeed an extreme sport that requires exceptional physical agility, strength and coordination. Dangerous as many people are injured. The International Olympic Committee has included it for the first time in 2016 and is defined as a extreme sport. This IS extreme ;) http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/7456096105/photos/2984029/aruba-kitesurfing-photography-by-tony-filson

On Street Photography challenge (7 comments in total)

Way too many submissions. For the heck of it I submitted 5 photos of which two won international photo competitions and they got no recognition. I don't think my work is better or should win.. but 800 is just too many. Street photography is very special and subjective. To take the time to review 800 photographs is daunting. Even after shooting an international sporting event that's equivalent to a "full day's" work of post production work flow without the editing. I love shooting street but it seems the true "genre" is lost in blur, clipping, shadows, black, OOF and sloppy photography at times that people call "Street". "Street" is NOT and excuse to throw the basic elements of photography out the window because the genre is "Street". So many of the shots were WONDERFUL. Next time, perhaps, limit it to one shot. That way we can all vote and take the time to share. Best regards :) TV

On water fight challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

tvstaff: Be creative... Have fun? What a joke.

Sorry my friend but you've got pictures "included" that are much less relevant than I one I posted... I showed a kitesurfer fighting to stay afloat in "Extremely Heavy Water Splash" The photo's here "included" of kids or people in a pool with some bits of water moving around them is contrary to 1.) your statement now, 2.) before and at the 3.) onset of what you posted for the contest.

thanasaki: A really touching photo, talking by itself!

Thank you, her hands were so weathered and weak yet she kept helping her daughter. Much love between them. I guess through life this love is never lost.
