On Accessory Review: Drobo Mini RAID article (148 comments in total)
In reply to:

The Squire: If you need high capacity, resilient, high performance file storage... Don't work on a laptop. Buy a workstation and kit it out properly. It'll cost you less, give you more options, and perform better. Forget about expensive, compromised, external disk drives for anything but off-site backup.

That's my way of thinking as well... Laptops are limited in all aspects. Smaller means slower.

Ridiculous. At $419 plus at least another $1000 in SSD's to get 320MB/S speeds?
BS!
That's why I keep my 2010 Mac Pro. I have 7 Internal hard drives in it plus a 1TB PCI-e OWC Accelsior SSD with speeds of over 800MB/s.
No external cables, power supplies or cluttered desktop. Just a big box which takes as much space as a laptop and has more power than the new Trashcan Mac Pro.
I also have USB 3.0 but no thunderbolt but who needs it anyway.
The Drobo is a ripoff...

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1489 comments in total)

I don't shoot Nikon but use ACR. Why would you want the clarity style to be on by default? I think the more naked the image, the better. You can't go back and undo an in-camera effect.

This will be pretty awesome, if it works as advertised.
I have the pocket wizard mini TT-1 with the AC-3 using Einstein flashes. I can control the power of up to 3 flashes individually but the system is not perfect and already 2 AC-3's died on me.
I couldn't find the specs for my studio flashes. I hope it works.

Somehow Philip Askey's comment and my reply have mysteriously vanished…
Hmmm… Dishwasher "news", few reviews and now, censorship…
Way to go DPR.

clicstudio: DPR is losing it… Bring Philip Askey back please!
Amazon owns DPR. I was waiting for the links to BUY the GoPro AND the Diwshwasher…
Kinda Sad.

I said I was waiting for the links. It was a joke to show how materialistic DPR has become.

All this time, effort and money and the results are boring.
The only one that is cool is the one with the pigeons frozen in mid air.
If the half ring would have been horizontally placed, it would have made for a much better "bullet" effect.
No offense to the photographer.

The reflection on the frog/mantis photo is definitely fake, but I can't tell if the mantis was added later or not.

I Can't Believe this argument is still going on.
Posing animals or humans or still life to entice shock or drama has been done for ever.
Some Photojournalists abuse that and win Pulitzer prices over images of death, sorrow and pain. People still buy that stuff.
So what is wrong with a few posed insects and frogs to create actual art?

On Little beauty: Nordin Seruyan's macro images article (352 comments in total)

I am tired of all these purists who think that Photoshop is the work of the devil.
Photography, since it's creation, is fake. It's a fake representation of reality through a complicated set of lenses to capture something that is not what the human eye can see.
We don't see in "macro" or can see Bokeh. Those are things created by humans to make photos more 3D and to fake a view of two eyes into one single lens.
If you think about it, cameras have only one "eye", one aperture one shutter speed. Cameras can only see one thing either light or dark, what's in between is very limited, so that's why you need another element to fake reality, like a flash. Humans have so much more dynamic range. So there is no way any camera in the world can capture would be Really see.
Raw photo without any processing, it's already unreal. Think about it. Photoshop is just another tool. Just like it is to have a fast lens that will create a creamy blurry background. That is just another way of using tools at our disposal, to create an effect.
Also, black-and-white photography is another unreal approach to photography. Nobody sees him black-and-white, people that say that black-and-white photos are more artistic are just limited to the knowledge of shooting and color. Which is a lot harder. You have to think of White Ballas, exposure, and Other elements which are "forgiven" in black-and-white.
Stop complaining about postprocessing and go out there and shoot something great instead.

Who cares how it was done. If the insects are dead or alive, posed or not. They all look amazing.
What matters is the end product.
Stop criticizing without knowledge.

I happen to like it. its a vision of the world that u can't see otherwise.
I agree that it gets annoying or repetitive after a while but still fun to watch.

Martin Crombie Photography: Same old. Silhouettes, off camera..yawn

Check out the "Paris in The Springtime" article.
Lots of silhouettes, couples and bokeh 50 years ago.
This guy didn't invent anything. Nobody today invents anything. It's all been done. Just an implementation on the same old stuff. Now in color and higher resolution but the same nonetheless.

In reply to:

mas54: This site has degenerated. It is no longer what its name implies, digital photo review. Maybe, instead of this filler material, the reviewers could test lenses. For instance, how do the Nikon manual focus lenses compare with new plastic wonders on new cameras?

B&H-sponsored videos? This site has gone from Reviews to anything they can get paid for... Kinda $ad.
I've been visiting DPR since 1999 and the good old days when Phil Askey was running it.
Then Amazon took over and you know the rest...
