On article Toshiba announces world's first SDHC card with NFC (52 comments in total)
In reply to:

maljo@inreach.com: NFC - for those who don't know (which is probably most of us):

Near Field Communication

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are similar to near field communication on the surface. All three allow wireless communication and data exchange between digital devices like smartphones wirelessly.

NFC is an offshoot of radio-frequency identification. NFC is designed for use by devices within close proximity to each other.

Thanks, I didn't know either. A pity DPReview doesn't cater for us dumb ones.

On article Photokina 2014: Canon stand report (69 comments in total)

"Around back is a 3.2" 1036-dot LCD ...". Either a typo or a very large leap backwards!

And will Canon Australia announce a similar price drop? I think I know the answer.

On article Behind the Shot: Flames of the North (68 comments in total)

I'd have thought eight images was a bit of overkill. Three would have done me.

Graham Meale: 1. People will do a lot with a small image
Good luck to them.
2. Even if you post at low resolution, people will find the full-res image anyway
Not if you've never uploaded the full-res image. Most of the images on my website are thumbnail size.
3. Some people won’t believe it’s your own photo
I don't lose sleep over what people think.
4. The recognition you gain from the photo's popularity will not be very fruitful
OK. I'm not here to gain recognition.

It ain't. It never will be.

Why didn't I think of this? I could have made a fortune from all my out-of-focus pictures ...

I looked everywhere for a way to switch it off. I'm more likely to like it if I know I have a choice.

On article Canon announces 16-35mm F4L and 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 lenses (368 comments in total)
In reply to:

rrccad: at $299 for a UWA of 10-18, that's going to sell well. going to be interesting to see the MTF's

Try http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/ef_lens_lineup/ef_16_35mm_f_4l_is_usm

They look a lot better than the 2.8

On article Nikon D4s First Impressions Review (1038 comments in total)
In reply to:

Nick8: Just one thought, not related to this new great camera in particular…
In the film era, both the ASA and DIN standards were used for the film sensitivity.
100 ASA was equivalent to 21 DIN.
I think DIN would have been a far more practical choice. ISO 409,600 would be equivalent to 57 DIN.
Another 2 steps in sensitivity from 409,600 and the ISO will become 1,638,400 vs 63 DIN.
Certainly that cannot fit on a dedicated dial :)

I've often wondered how big and cumbersome ISO numbers have to get before we go to a sensible logarithmic scale such as DIN. Can you imagine a conversation "Are you going to use ISO 409,600 or go up to 819,200?" Dumb.

On article Ten items you should have in your camera bag (288 comments in total)

I always carry in my bag (with camera and lenses) a cloth, spare battery and memory cards, lens pen, polarising filter, GPS unit and humidity sensor. That's all.

Couldn't find any mention of this on the Australian site. What a surprise.

Sad, isn't it?

Sarah Marino wins my first prize. But I agree with others ... isn't the silky water look a bit passé?
