[insert obligatory Nikon/Canon/Sigma/Sony/Leica/Tokina fanboy comment here]
(and note that if you snark me I will call you, or imply that you are, a fanboy)

RichRMA: Is anyone going to admit they hate it mostly because they can't afford it?

Not me. It's a ridiculously ugly housing on a perfectly ordinary camera. It's like buying a Toyota Camry with a bunch of burl wood trim and gold plated plastic. And the one in the photo isn't even clean!

Boy, that's grim.

RXVGS: 'Jif' vs 'Gpeg'

I _believe_ the correct pronunciation is Gpej!

Amazon, why are you doing Adobe's market research for them? Do you think that you will lose sales with the move away from boxed/downloadable software licensing?

Please read, found an important flaw that can lead to total destruction of data. I canceled my pre-order after I found it.

Basically ACDSee demands that you place the 'file delete' confirm at the OS level (recycle bin option) vs leaving it as an option limited to ACDSee image review manipulation.

Before we could select tools-option-file management confirm delete behavior on/off. Now this being set at the OS level. This means that if you accidentally select 'delete' when at the disk level or while opening a file (any program), say good bye to your data until you retrieve it from the recycle bin.

I am an IT consultnt and system administrator and ACDSee is now off my list of recommendation for those I consult for and definitively barred from the network I administer.

Note this information (use recycling option) came from ACDSee tech support.

Seems a little panicky. It's in the recycle bin if accidentally deleted.

CaseyComo: Call me old-fashioned, but I prefer the look of a single exposure. If the sky is too bright, expose for the shadows and use a grad ND filter.

Thanks all for great comments. Agree, orange grad filter generally no es bueno.

I read the pages you linked. I don't think anyone was meant to believe that silly story.

Ashley Pomeroy: "Yesterday the Hipstamatic team was reduced from a team of 11 to a mere six employees"

I like to imagine that the CEO got the employees together, threw a broken snooker cue on the floor, and gave them six minutes to halve their numbers - or he was gonna kill them *all*.

I have it on good authority that this is exactly how it went down. Were you there, too?

There's some merit in artless documentary photography. A lot of life is banal. Showing that is all right.

There is nothing jawdroppingly stupid about this. /sarcasm

If I ever get in that situation I'll just wait for the other photographer to move.

On article Is Instagram 'debasing photography'? (291 comments in total)

It's like effects boxes and electric guitar. Fine in the right hands, but not to be substituted for sound fundamentals and a little taste and artistry.
