About me:

I now am waiting for my first full-frame DSLR! It is the Nikon D800! I can't wait to play with/use it! :) (Sept. 12, 2013; thurs.)
Update: It arrived at 7:08 p.m. on Friday the 13th. :D 2013. Oh boy, two 13s. Does this bode well for me? Yes! I got a full-frame camera. Will it have left sensor focusing problems? I certainly hope not.

Looking into digital camera capture. Fuji S5Pro's dynamic range is really high up there for me. Seems like 'the look' more closely resemble film's ability to keep highlights. Hope that's the case. I just HATE that digital look. 'Crossing my fingers'. HA! ... Update: Woot! I'm getting the S5 Pro. Yippee! My first dSLR. Should be FUN! (Sept. 8, 2007; sat.) --shipment has arrived-WOOHOO!!-(Sept. 11, 2007; tues.)

What beautiful homes. I'm surprised they were all abandoned with the furnishings in them. More surprised that the furnishings are still there.

Video screen grab suggestion:
If you do a screen grab, it's preferable to use .png as the format, because .jpg will give compression artifacts, as clearly seen on the lettering/font of the advertising on the right, above the lady's (in the white headband) head.

I want it packed so densely, that I'll have to break out my microscope. ;P

tompabes2: I'm sick of vintage pictures, frankly speaking.

Real vintage photos, or current photos made to look vintage? ;)

On Zeiss announces 'no compromise' Otus 55mm F1.4 article (508 comments in total)

I would like to see samples (with no software defringing) in these two situations:

1) Backlight objects that are dark, against a bright sky, to see if there's purple/blue fringing.
2) Bright shimmering ripples gleaming with the Sun's light in front of the camera (like the backlit scenario), to also test the above.

The way Mosaic Creator is creating those mosaic, by adding color to the images, is just cheating.

Colorchecker question

The addition of the ColorChecker is great. I read that those fade after a while (how long it takes will vary upon how, and how long it has been lit for, most likely). What are the plans to rotate in a new one?

Also, how about a chrome ball (for absolute highlight), and a black trap (for absolute shadow)? Similar in vein to this would be the SpyderCube.
