mas54: A quick question: Is there provision for uploading from/through this new iPad to an external drive for backup? Or do you still have to travel with a computer to do that?

Great. How do you accomplish it? Does it work with RAW files?

Why would you say that color temperature has anything to do with photo editing? Most folks can pick out the good ones from the bad ones without proper color temperature.

On article CP+ 2016: Hands-on with new Sigma SD cameras and lenses (308 comments in total)

I see lenses only for other cameras, not their own. Are there actually lenses for these new cameras?

As soon as Sony starts using optical viewfinders instead of tiny tv sets, I'll be interested.

Published today? Really? I read this several days ago.

I like that currency conversion from pounds to dollars. Where can a guy get that?

It's not that I am enamored of the Fuji x100s/t/..., but all of the other fixed lens aps-c cameras are crippled. They are blind. What's more, is that there none with 50mm equivalent lenses. As far as I'm concerned, there are no choices; there is only one whole camera available.

Come on guys, at least put windows like the Contax T's had.

On article DxOMark recommends best lenses for the Nikon D800E (73 comments in total)

They continue to omit Nikon's manual focus lenses, 24/2.8 and 28/2.8.

On article Ryan Brenizer on how to shoot engagement sessions (72 comments in total)

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?

RStyga: I think Pentax 645D is still the cost/performance king *by far*.

Actually, if you're going to refer to D800 as 35mm, you certainly can't refer to digital Hassies as medium format. They're not. The real smallest medium format is 645, the negative size, not the name.

RichRMA: Never been a big fan of Kowa spotting scopes, the German companies and Nikon produce better ones, but the lenses may be good. Kowa made some 35mm cameras (re-badged?) and lenses in the 1970's I believe.

Also made Kaloflex twin-lens in 50's or 60's. I had one. Good quality.

To all you people talking about pp or post processing: first you have to process. The word you're looking for is "processing."

KariIceland: Truly disturbing images, the one of the execution speaks volume more about the photographer rather than the ones doing the execution, the photographer is worse in my opinion in this case.

Kari, what are you talking about? The photographer is worse than...? Worse in what way? Aren't you on this forum because you're a photographer?

On article Ricoh GR firmware version 2.03 now available (19 comments in total)

What am I missing here? Digital crop-smaller sensor, less pixels, doesn't show in external viewfinder, unless you constantly change finders. What's the purpose? Isn't it better to crop when ready to print?

Does this mean they're not coming out with 35 or 50mm cameras?

rsf3127: I don't get all the hype about these fuji cameras. The image samples look dull, mushy, without contrast and unsharp when compared to NEX and the 100D either in RAW or JPEG. The ergonomy is ok and the build quality is nice, but this does not compensate for the IQ problem.

The IQ from my x100s is as good as it gets. Where have you seen prints from these cameras? I can make a 40x60 that is sharp all the way to the corners.
Contrast? That comes during processing.

Just because you can doesn't mean you should. The greatest power comes from not doing something just because you can.

Creativity is the willingness to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. Great creativity. No art.
