MrTaikitso: Want! Finally, a reason to sell my otherwise excellent Samsung EX2F. (Don't laugh, best camera they ever made.) A mix of flip forward screen (good for video not just selfies), pop up VF and the improved lens makes this Sony a dream camera for us street photographers. So hate composing on a screen, not as intimate as a VF. Way to go Sony, and way to improve your still hurting bottom line.

Same here - I also love the EX2F, which is my everyday camera, and I also carry an RX100 (mainly for low-light and for more reach). If the RX100 III had a fully articulated LCD it would be perfect.
I will get one.

DUSTY LENS: Is this the last thing we see when we leave this world ?

That is the last thing the camera sees when a new model comes out.

On Vase & Rose in the Technique: A still life challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

William Woodruff: Congratulations Wifred, you are the actual winner of this challenge! The first three submissions were all made by the same person, and they scored higher than you because that person entered numerous fraudulent votes. Your photo placed highest among the honest entries. So, again, congratulations, sorry you got cheated out of the official win that you deserved.

Thanks for your kind words.
Yeah, the second image also has more then "a flower", which I interpret as one single flower, and should have been DQ'ed.
However, I must say I do like the winning picture.

In reply to:

barb_s: Simple, and the lighting or shadowing, played nicely. Well done!

yeah, sandbagging, so childish

I have cast over 12000 votes already, and gave a half-star maybe 10 times only.
Most people play fair, though.

In the diagram "Viewing - mirror down" the light path inside the pentaprism is shown incorrectly; it shows one reflection too many.

On Aleatoric Forms: In the Moment From a Bokeh of Light. challenge (3 comments in total)

Only 4 days left - what's the deal with "uploading native image resolution"?
Is it okay to set the camera to a more reasonable low resolution, like 4MP?

"Submissions should be uploaded as native image resolution."

Do we really have to upload 20MP, 24MP or even 36MP images?
Can I set my camera to a lower resolution?
