joe6pack: Heart warming story. Sometimes, the photos in a camera is worth more than the camera itself.

I had some precious photo that was lost in an xD card (thanks Olympus!). I would certainly willing to pay twice the price of the card to get my photo back.

Did you try a recovery program? I had good experience with TestDisk/PhotoRec.

On Torockó in the Urban Transylvania challenge (3 comments in total)

I was there and know the place so let me comment on this picture (not by me).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rimetea

Rimetea (formerly Trascău; Hungarian: Torockó; German: Eisenmarkt, Eisenburg)

It is a pretty former miners' village. In 1870 a fire destroyed it but it was then rebuilt in a short time, so it has pretty similar white houses (like the ones in the background), a uniform village-scape all around.

The foreground might be from the public well in the main square.

On Hungarian law bans photos taken without consent article (321 comments in total)
In reply to:

Esign: I think that everyone opposed to be photographed has something to hide. Most of the time, it's bad hair day, wrong shirt or forgot to shave. At the same time, nobody seems to care that 1000+ people can watch you in person when you cross the city (and see your shortcomings perfectly).
In Budapest, 90 % of the people on the streets are tourists, anyway.

> In Budapest, 90 % of the people on the streets are tourists, anyway.

Well, there are touristic places where this might even apply, but generally speaking it is of course an exaggeration.

But while you are in Hungary, the Hungarian laws apply to you too. If it is forbidden to take a photo of a person without permission, then it applies also to the tourists as photo subjects too.

Horsefeathers: I have the Panasonic brand to be reliable and have never needed any service of any sort. I have owned two Panasonic and FZ30 and an Fz150 and the FZ 30 is still taking good pictures. It hasn't missed a beat.

I have an NV-GX7 video camera since 2002. It once needed service: its still picture taking ability was gone.

In reply to:

sono1mito: mah,affermare che le ultime telecamere rappresentano un" grande passo avanti rispetto a 2 anni fa" mi sembra esagerato,certo qualche dettaglio è stato migliorato ma non tanto.Ognuno di noi penso che anche con una camera "vecchia" scatta ottime foto senza inseguire le ultime novità.
Ciao

> Ja ik denk dat ze ook niet Nederlands verstaan.

Well, on the basis of German it is not impossible to understand some Dutch, so this much can be fairly understood by (the relatively numerous) German speakers too.

Anyway, the remark was a good way to hint that it is not very wise to publish in Italian in an English language international forum.

ZorSy: sad and concerning if their authorities consider this a "solution" for the problem....

> the facades were covered with huge billboards of the picture

Often the facade is kept while the building behind is being completely replaced. With or without billboard.

On B/W Still life - exactly 5 Objects required challenge (11 comments in total)

I was pondering on entering but it says for me
"Challenge is now open for submissions" and
"no entry" and still
"challenge full'.

It is strange even if I see your post on having closed it.

Ronie-AAA: Get out of town... if you don't want to disclose the manufacturer of the card than the whole thing is pointless, the picture is nothing to write home about.

Besides, the card's having survived could have to do with being closed and maybe shielded in the camera body.

On First impressions of the Pentax K50 and K500 article (85 comments in total)
In reply to:

ManuelVilardeMacedo: I don't wanna bash Pentax. I really don't. It is a respectable, innovative and honest brand which makes DSLRs I wouldn't refuse to own and would certainly enjoy. But... that pink and gold colour scheme...? I don't know what's worse - Pentax offering it, or thinking someone will actually buy one.

..........

(long pause in order to clean the vomit off the keyboard)

Different cultures appreciate this differently. Colored camera bodies are not forcibly that attractive in Europe or the USA, but they are beloved e.g. in Japan, in the home market.

On My window in the What Is This? – II. challenge (10 comments in total)

So the most accurate guess way by JimW-203 apart from the fact it is only one tree - thanks to everyone for guessing:

> Tree/trees as seen through water drops

On My window in the What Is This? – II. challenge (10 comments in total)

Yes, it is the reflection/refraction of the big gleditsia tree seen from my window, this time though water droplets. It is the same tree seen in the different droplets.

On Nikon CoolPix P7700 Preview preview (192 comments in total)
In reply to:

dave english: I think you have to be realistic aout what you are getting.
12,2MB is way plenty for a small consumer lens. Also, less pixels means better low light reproduction, not less.
I must say this F2 lens sounds like a huge step up from other point and shoots, but remember that the pro Nikon 200mm F2 lens costs $ 5000 and this package is $ 500!
I have a D3 with a 12mb full frame sensor which takes stunning photos which I can easily print on my A2 printer.
In this case, less is more! The speedlight commander function makes this camera punch way above its weight. Unless I can have a true TTL large bright viewfinder like we can have on a pro camera, why bother when you are going to get a better idea of the image from the screen anyway?
I need a camera I can keep in the glovebox or in my pocket but which can light my products and reproduce commercial quality images when I'm not carrying around a big heavy camera bag full of pro lenses. There isnt another camera that can do all this for me.

> remember that the pro Nikon 200mm F2 lens costs $ 5000 and this package is $ 500

But that pro Nikon 200mm F2 lens covers a much larger sensor area than this compact, doesn't it?

In reply to:

MysticX: Her work destroys the American Dream.

If only comunists were able to get her work in the eighties, what a good anti capitalist propaganda they would had made out of it.

Just looking from outside, I'm from Eastern Europe and during that time we were told here that while we comunist citizens received free houses (that was true), many of the capitalist citizens were homeless and poor and the state was not giving them any help.

Of course we were refusing to believe it because the only contact with the capitalist west was luxury magazines and movies with rich people. It seems life in the west was not like in Dallas .....

> Her work destroys the American Dream.

Or at least your perception of it.
