  • Agreed.  Even 30 times mag would be hard-pressed to bring the birds of that size and distance up to something with gee whiz factor.  An SX50 or equivalent would be much better.  The FZ1000 doesn't ...
  • Replied in ...or a star.
  • I would say some people's ambitions exceed their abilities...in photography, I mean.
  • Replied in Why do this?
    Where a great deal of emotion and personal investment lie, there lies one's self-esteem also. (A play on the words of the Apostle Matthew.) It really depends on one's intentions. Those whose goal ...
  • You can't win the public battle.  Too many mercenaries out there with minds of their own. What I have done, albeit with mixed results (some won't even respond to my private PM's) is to send a PM ...
  • There is a good analogy to anyone who understands voltage.  More voltage = more pressure.  In a hose, more pressure = more water incident on the target/unit of time.  A shutter's dwell determines ...
  • Yes, I need something better in low light, something faster in focus than my HS20 EXR Finepix.  When I get that, I will not hanker after that DSLR after all, nor will I wonder if I can eke out ...
  • Nonsense.  He doesn't need credentials.  You would poo-poo them anyway.  Go ahead, be brave, post some photos, let him offer his critique, and then let's see you refute what he says with a ...
  • OP, I did a google search  on "What type of person belittles a newcomer with put downs simply for having asked a question that the person doing the belittling feels is not worthy of his time, and ...
  • Yupp-er. Business is business, and both entities serve the purpose of profit, dividends in good years, and self-perpetuation. Let's be honest, somewhat less than half of those frequenting these ...

    You know The Dark Place.
  • I approve (not that it matters), and feel that you have demonstrated the point well.  It's a lovely image.
  • One is likely to get constructive criticism and encouragement from those who received it themselves.  Meta-learning on top of what they could take away from the criticism.  The best advice I have ...
  • Replied in Nope
    Exactly.  I have some fine photos, but I can't tell you why, at least not if you held any one of them up and asked, "What gives?"  So, I'm a lousy photog, thrashing around and getting lucky about ...
  • Would you listen? Why have you such a vast collection of other cameras if they all were exceptional at what you need from them, or how you feel about them eventually? You are making an emotional ...
  • Please indulge someone who doesn't yet know a great deal about lenses: If edge sharpness is ever a problem, and if one doesn't stop down, or forgets in excitement, could the print/image not meet ...
  • Mental midgets? Maybe they could argue successfully that you fit that description, and not they. Just sayin'.... However, I agree with your point because nobody has a monopoly on fact or on 'the ...
  • Email him back and tell him he sounds like a really nice guy.  Would he give serious thought to upping his offer another $40?  His rationale, whether declining or agreeing, should be interesting ...
  • I hesitate to answer for anyone but myself, so I will do only that: I believe you misunderstand the nature of moderation. By its very meaning etymologically, it serves to constrain, or to restrict ...
  • ... People operating businesses, or patronizing them, are likely to report being happier if they do it consonant with their values system.  If there is something about this request that you feel is ...
