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.)

Bob Janes: I score on most, although I only lusted after 9 and 10...

I confess that I'm not familiar with 11 at all - can someone enlighten me?

@ Paul Amyes, don't you mean the fixer varnish for the positive print peeled off from the Polaroid negative? That stuff stunk too.

If anyone has not seen it yet, see "Carl Sagan - Pale Blue Dot" on youtube. It is inspiring (link below):

Speaking of addicts, if there are any photo addicts who would like to get rid of their drug, I wouldn't mind getting the variety called, "Nikon D800". :D

ptodd: Smartphones can use their accelerometer / gyroscope as a spirit level.

This was meant as a reply to Ron Co, but for some reason I can't seem to get the appropriate button to come up on my mobile device...

That is so crazy how smart that is, to use the accelerometer/gyroscopes to level. Crazy good!

webrunner5: Oh come on. How good of quality do you need for a newspaper spread? And I remember there was life before zoom lenses. That is why people have legs and feet. Plenty of people willing to take their place is they balk about it. Plus like has been said who even reads a newspaper anymore?

I think it may well end up a positive for them. More up close and personal photos and video. Like it or not Smartphones are going to be the death of Canon and Nikon down the road. They will end up like Leica selling Leather covered zebra skin cameras for like 10k a pop to 200 rich dentists.

Good luck getting up close and personal to a wild fire.

That is quite cool seeing the transition of height. Neat!

sagebrushfire: Honestly I think it's worse to give someone something that's 60%+ painted and it shows, especially in the picture where the baby's foot mysteriously just cuts off and where the little girl looks like an angry swamp monster. It would be better to just use the picture as a slight reference and make a nice looking painting based off it.

The baby's foot which you state is "cut off", looks to just be hidden by the person's black outfit/body.

harrygilbert: When will this capability come out for the 1D-X?

Yeah, I think they're just erring on the side of caution/no lawsuit.

From the conclusion on that article, under "Is hacking legal?", it woiuld seem it'd be okay to touch the 1D series camera.

Cool, thanks. I took a look.

I hope they come out with Nikon RAW video output. But it looks like they're focused on Canon, and getting that done right, first?

Ya, I'm guessing they can differentiate from winking and blinking.

Maybe they don't know about it? It'd be interesting to send an email to Corel and see how they respond.

Dang it! I had this idea years ago. :( Alas, no money, nor technical know-how to implement it. ...

DPreview, I appreciate all the tests you all do (you're a great resource), so don't get me wrong. But it would have been nice to provide samples in a quiet room, as the main point of the STM seems to be how silent it is. We can't tell with all the background noise in the outdoor scenes you have. Why is this necessary? Well, I imagine new or budget film makers, and perhaps they need to film a quiet scene. Thanks.

On Soup & bread in the FOOD challenge (19 comments in total)
In reply to:

bigdaddave: Really nice shot and well lit.

There are two things I would change, I would have had the crust the other way up to see the texture of the bread and I'd clone out the writing on the spoon, but really nice.

I think that would depend on the emphasis of the photo. I reckon that if you turned that cut piece of bread around, the lighter insides would be too light, and thus be sort of a bright distraction, or too much of a screen/scene hog. :)
