The gift of gigantic storage capacity is loving permission for the photographer in your life to shoot

Also logic error. Implied strongly is that you get 12tb of storage AND raid protection. If you choose 12tb, you get NO protection and in fact raise your probability of an error by a ^2 since in a stripe set the entire data set is lost if either disk goes down. So you get 12TB of storage in a high risk configuration or 6tb with data protected in a mirror (raid).

Thanks for pointing it out. It's been updated to better reflect the fact you get 6TB RAID 1 or, god help you, 12TB RAID 0. :)

Brian Caslis: Can't drag on a Mac using either Safari or Chrome. Worst webpage design I've ever seen.

There was an issue with voting for a short amount of time, but that shouldn't prevent dragging and dropping on Macs. I'll go pester the Mac users on our team.

This sucks.

Try it again. There was a small error preventing votes.

There might've been some intermittent problems but it worked just now when I was testing it. Give it a shot!

agc73: Doesn't appear to be working. Nothing happens when I click to vote on the camera list.

FYI using Chrome on a MBA.

@zubs - Working on the mobile version.

@turbsy - The alternative would be to have several dropdowns? Kind of ugly, imo.

On High-end full frame roundup (2014) article (539 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zigmont: Just a correction: "The Sony also uses all of it’s 12.2MP sensor..."

"It's" is always and only a contraction for "it is". If you wouldn't use "it is" then don't use "it's". There is no such thing as a possessive "it".

In the sentence above, "it is" would be incorrect, so it's "its".

Thanks for catching that. Its fixed now. ;)

Bear in mind that the cost of just the back alone is suggested at 24,990 EUR / 34,990 USD, plus the body and lens. Winning the contest and getting a loaner would probably be the only way most people would ever get to work with technology like this.

On Sony Alpha 7 II real-world sample gallery posted article (232 comments in total)
In reply to:

pixelpushing: I have a few questions. If DPR gets this much outrage directed at them for taking a handful of intentionally casual real-world shots, what chance do amateurs have, posting their imperfect shots in these forums? Talk about a tough crowd.

Secondly, good to see at least one night street shot, which appears to show mitigated sensor stack reflection known to annoy some with the prior model. Did you guys see any indication of that phenomenon in your pictures?

Lastly, how do I scrub the DUCK RIDE monstrosity from the nightmares I'm going to have for the rest of my life, where it's coming for me?

Can't sleep, duck ride monstrosity will eat me.

In reply to:

jesus_freak: I wish they did something like this with a review of a video-centric camera like the GH4 or A7S. It seems odd that they would use the D750 review for this, rather than the GH4 or A7S reviews.

Not our full review. That's still coming.

@Karl I was definitely getting caught up in semantics. Hence why I pointed out being pedantic about the whole thing. :)

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 First Impressions Review preview (1864 comments in total)
In reply to:

Cheezr: Richard,
what does this mean (from pg 4 of review)

One of the new dials on the LX100 is for changing the shutter speed. Once you hit the 'end' on the dial, you can keep going higher or lower using the dials.

The slowest and fastest shutter speeds on the dial are 1 second and 1/4000th of a second, though the camera is capable of 60 seconds and 1/16,000th of a second.

Self-portrait: setting up the camera and taking a picture of yourself.

Selfie: self-portrait taken at arm's-length (or at selfie stick length...).

If we're being pedantic about it.
