On Sony announces US pricing for full-frame Alpha 7 II article (177 comments in total)
In reply to:

webrunner5: Why do people come on here and knock a camera they probably are not going to buy. If you don't like it don't buy the damned thing.

But don't mock people that want to buy one, or would if they had the money. Jesus, this site is just getting goofier everyday. Sony has just come out with probably the best camera 99% of the people on here could only have dreamed of 3 years ago, and all they could ever need and still knock it.

Go out and take a picture, which 95% of the people on here will never print, or make a penny off of and have a nice day. Its just a camera people. A darn good one at that.

Happy Thanksgiving.

A good analysis

I'm shocked at how poor the IQ is - have you checked you microfocus for accurate focusing?

This lens is apparently garbage - take it back to the store for a refund

I'm fairly certain Frank Zappa could have worked this little trinket into some lyrics.

Not too many folks gonna recognize those lyrics here - but I do. "Polish it up, wax it down".

On Sigma announces dp1 Quattro article (202 comments in total)
In reply to:

phazelag: All these criticisms from people who havent used a sigma DP or held this one in their hand used it. I know several people I trust that say after an hour they love the camera ergonomics. Usually a radical design like this has some smart thinking behind it, but very few are open to even trying to understand it.

Handling Schmandling. This bit of gear belongs on a tripod.
We should talk about why people don't use tripods, not the supposed shortcomings of this camera.
Oh, the answer is they are lazy. Not saying anything, just saying.

OMG. There really are too many mental defectives in the world.
So, so Sad.

Please, why don't all you "more money than brains" types stay away from the photography world.

I'm rooting for a massive worldwide ebola pandemic as a much needed attitude adjuster.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2709 comments in total)

Whoopdy do. A 70D on steroids.
I don't see how image quality will be better than that from a 70D.
They could not come up with a 24 MP sensor for this?
If your not a sports photographer, why not just keep your 70D or 7D and buy better glass instead. Geez - it's a no brainer.

They market the 18-135 with this sensor? What is the world coming too exactly?

On Getting off the ground: Cheap drones for photography article (149 comments in total)
In reply to:

christiangrunercom: I'm sorry, but calling the Phantom a serious platform is a joke. And calling the reviewed quads for camera-platforms, well, no, they are trainers and toys.

So when is a platform a "serious platform"? When it can lift a gimbal providing close to perfect stability with no vibration and ability to lift a camera providing pro grade footage with room for postprocessing.

Right - and your looking at 10G to 15G with all in, including insurance etc. And you need to applly for permission from the federal authorities each and every time you fly. What a joke.
And if you get a big job with multiple sites you need to repack and reset and drive to each site. Full size aircraft you just whip it all of in one tour/flight. Multiple sites is where the money is. Drones are just hobby fun.

On Getting off the ground: Cheap drones for photography article (149 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jonathan371: A drone is a flying fan which can easily go out of control and hit a person or overhead wires etc. The smaller the drone the more susceptible to light breezes, unexpected gusts, etc you are. When you factor the above in plus the anxiety the general public has regarding privacy you realize there is hardly a time or place you can use a drone. I found that in aerial photography you need to have different solutions for different environments. kite photography, mast photography, or simply getting a camera up on a pole are often better solutions that a flying fan blade drone.

True. I use masts, poles and full size aircraft. Anything else is a waste of time if you want quality images. I been doing this 20 years. Drones is a pain in the butt. Always will be, no matter how the tech develops. It's just a big mnarketing snazzo what with the military stuff taking off. Gotta be cool ya know. Cost a fortune considering crashes etc. And nobody escapes crashes. NOBODY.

On An In-depth Discussion of M + Auto-ISO for Canon SLRs article (38 comments in total)
In reply to:

Allen Chernack: I tried the M + Auto ISO and for the most part if works well. One issue is when there is too much light and the ISO can't drop low enough. I was shooting at 1/500 and f8 and the ISO couldn't get low enough to avoid a blown out image. Realizing this I adjusted the f stop and things worked OK. The lens is a 70-300 which is nearly 500 with the Canon 60D so I use 1/500 shutter speed.

The solution here is to use safety shift. Once the ISO can go no lower it overides/increases the shutter speed to maintain correct exposure.

On An In-depth Discussion of M + Auto-ISO for Canon SLRs article (38 comments in total)
In reply to:

cpkuntz: Too bad there is no M+Auto ISO exposure compensation. This is the main problem with it.

Right. This is my approach to no EC for M + Auto ISO.
OR you can set up a two frame auto bracket with continuous shutter. Here you get two frames with the second acting as the adjustable EC frame. You keep shutter button down and it stops after two frames.
To vary the second "EC" frame you just hit the Q button and rotate the rear dial, with the screen setting highlighted on the EC/AEB section at all times. Don't forget to keep shutter button down to complete the two frame sequence or else the next shot will just be one "EC" frame with no "normal" frame. You can choose high or low speed continuous whatever suits your needs. I use low to keep the strain off the shutter over time.
But evaluative metering mode and doing EC during raw processing is much easier. Just watch out for black cats in a coal mine.

Rawmeister: So new and better software that's not compatible with hardware that's presently on dealer's shelves or just sold recently? I'm so sick of the games and manipulation from Canon. It makes me want to dump all my Canon gear and switch to another provider. Disgusting abuse of customers. How do they sleep much less survive in the marketplace? Is there no place for ethical conduct in today's marketplace. The govenment in China has to order Nikon to shape up, now we get this bullcarp from Canon. It's depressing I tell you.

Honestly - I'll try to put this mildly so as it won't hurt too much.
I've been using DPP since the beginning.
I hate all Adobe products. So you are wrong.
YOu may have a reading comprehension problem because... I said"It makes me want to dump all my Canon gear". That's not the same as "I dumped all my Canon gear" now is it? It was a statement on how I feel, not on what I've done. Get it? Go back to school and read a few books maybe. Do it deliberately.

In reply to:

3dreal: Pity i have still only winxp. maybe powerful pcs are also needed. see sigma software.

Wrong.
SPP responds very well to a faster comp.
Firstly, your video card does not speed up SPP.
Secondly you don't mention the CPU you use.
This is the crux. I use a 7i 3.5GHZ and it makes SPP fly.
The SSD are a big help for data transfers but not a big deal for improvong SPP performance. I use SSD storage anyways and love them. But Have a good old enterprise Sata6 spinner for backup
