On Behind the Shot: Flames of the North article (67 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 ...

But you didn't. (Not on the dpreview home page, anyway.)

On Site Update: notifications article (127 comments in total)

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 Canon announces 16-35mm F4L and 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 lenses article (367 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 Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (451 comments in total)

Typo: "optical 'custom grip'" presumably should be "optional 'custom grip'"

On Nikon D4s First Impressions Review preview (1042 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 Ten items you should have in your camera bag article (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?

On Preview:canon-eos-70d (1311 comments in total)

Of the sample videos, the only one that is much use is the one with the guy standing in front of the tower. In the racing boat shots, most of the action is left to right at infinity or close to it, and the depth of field is great enough for everything to be pretty much in focus anyway. I took a video of a band recently where I was side-on to the stage, with the musicians ranging from three to ten metres away. I tried to focus on each person when they did a solo, and found it quite difficult with the 5D Mark III. I'd be interested to see how the new focus system handled a situation like that.

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

On Roger Cicala investigates Canon's AF marketing claims article (89 comments in total)

I agree, DPR should hire Roger. I printed out all his articles in the series so I could curl up in bed with them ... and I don't do that often!

A pity he didn't look at the 24-105L on the 5DII and 5DIII. I've noticed an improvement, but not as dramatic as with the 70-300L. The 24-105 is seven years old now, so perhaps Canon will release a Mk II with better AF to match the 5DIII and 1D X ...
