  • Can't. I meant can't. Typo. Macro. I said macro. I said it makes a big difference for M A C R O . You know, when things are close to the camera. Close up. For stitched panoramas it will make no ...
  • If the axis is off center a rotation also moves the sensor forwards or backwards relative to the object. Can say for panos, but for macro a definite inconvenience.
  • Probably a previous history of problems with US orders coupled to an old and inert business organization. Money orders? Wire transfers? Ordering by phone?? You half expect the SB-N5 to be delivered ...
  • You drag your choices from the list below up to the empty boxes above. Took me a sec to realise that. May or may not work on mobile, I haven't tried.
  • There's a fundamental problem here in that anyone on a budget who wants a serious Pentax camera  simply buys a used K-5. Actually at the current blowout prices, a new K-5 II is within range. This ...
  • I use Toshiba FlashAir, which is similar, as is eyefi. The set up is ... well, its better is the person who set up the wifi network at home does it. ;-) Once that's done though they are easy ...
  • I'm a little concerned by how much the LB-V1 weighs. Seems to be all metal, looks like it weighs a ton. Plus with metal there's more of a concern to scratch the camera. I use the GR-N1000, if I'm ...
  • Nikon 1 V3 in the consumer ILC category, with the D3300 and Pentax K-S1... ORLY?
  • It's a common enough strategy at the low end. Nikon has been doing it for a long time now. The thinking behind it fairly straightforward: 1. At first, your main interest is to get rid of your ...
  • Well... K-S1 kit is 50th on kakaku at the moment. That's tied somehow (don't ask me!) with the K-50 18-135WR kit (which incidentally is selling for the same price as the K-S1 kit, 55,000 yen). ...
  • My advice to Pentax fans: roll with it. The K-S1 is a dog, it happens to all camera companies from time to time: a nominally good idea that ends up as a terrible product. TCS / Chris Niccolls was ...
  • Commented on Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview

    "Finally, for raw shooters using most other EOS body, can you say "goodbye banding?"

    That's an expensive way to go about it though don't you think?

  • The Nikon LD-1000 is very similar, and uses 4 AAA batteries. http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/acil/accessories/led_light_ld-1000/

  • The Nikon LD-1000 is very similar, and uses 4 AAA batteries. http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/acil/accessories/led_light_ld-1000/

    Alternatively you could power this LED light with any of the...

  • I dunno, I thought it drove home the point that the 645Z doesn't *automatically* make your photos any better. In fact to get even close to making any real use of its prowess you have to work very...

  • @EricCul

    The people who buy these "extreme weather, military-grade, ready-for-anything" black nylon webbing and pocket-infused camera accessories are nothing more than weekend warriors who would...

  • @EricCul

    Strange comment. It's pretty obvious most camera gear is bought by men, and designed and marketed for men. The styling tends to be aggressive, military/"tactical", rugged, clunky,...

  • "That's a woman's purse."

    Yes it is. What's your point?

  • There are plenty of "unisex?" satchels or messenger bags which are either designed to hold cameras or which can easily be converted to that purpose by adding a set of foam inserts.

  • Indeed. What is wrong with a camera refined to do exactly what the people buying it want it do? It neatly solves both the "I can't see the picture I'm about to take" and the "when my eyes look at...
