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.)

On trains in the TOYS FOR BOYS!! challenge (2 comments in total)

This is what I appreciate with kids in poorer countries. They are so creative, and make for themselves fun things, instead of everything handed to them, and then complaining they are bored.
I've seen some toy trains from aluminum soda cans too.

This reminds me of U-point technology used in Nik Software.

On Cine System Tripod Dolly and Mount Review article (70 comments in total)
In reply to:

marike6: The reviewer wrote: "Surfaces must be perfectly smooth for CineSkates to work optimally, limiting usefulness outdoors".

Isn't that true for all dollies and therefore not a deficiency of the product itself?

He also writes: "I'm pretty confident that it would be a valuable addition to any budget filmmaker's tool belt."

I suppose "budget" is the operative word. Clearly the DIY or shoe-string budget filmaker is not going to find a $450 car-mount / dolly a particularly attractive solution. But specialized video gear is certainly not cheap, so the price doesn't seem completely unreasonable especially if it adds polish to your productions.

Good job, thanks.

For now, I can only afford a skateboard and a pillow. :D lol

Combatmedic870: Now if they made an app and adapter to make your smart phone do the same thing, that would be cool. That what i thought it was when i seen it on the main page. (iphone)

There is an adapter:

GREAT! I've always hated the lack of DR in digital, other than the S5 Pro that I have. Thank you! :D

On Nikon issues service advisory on D600's dust issue article (240 comments in total)

EDIT: Not that it isn't late or anything. Plus, as from reading the comments below, doesn't seem like they're fully embracing that it's their fault. What a shame. I use their products too. This really makes me not want to.

Wish it had a swivel back screen.

Congrats. Very cool. I love to see something that is so different, from my own experience, and thus, experience culture and a different part of the world, if only for a little bit. Thanks for this.

Now I'm curious if they used Nikkor lenses and camera to film this. But I didn't like the purple fringing at 0:17. Doh!

In reply to:

Sloppy: The whole floor in the winner pic is photoshopped, including the figure's reflexion. It's sad to see that more and more photo contests turn into photoshop skill contests rather than focus on photography skills.

What's wrong with photoshop skills? I'm all for straight photography too, but if you compare to the good ol' days of film, there was also dodging, burning, multiple exposure, blending, etc. I think, instead of decrying the skill of the people who take the time to learn those things, you can raise the bar on your own?

wowlfie: Amazing it took so long to implement this

Yes, the simplest ideas are the toughest to come by. Case in point, the crosswalk timer countdown. :)
