SmilerGrogan: This will come in very handy for journalists and video artists who want to immerse their viewers in a situation. As long as it has awesome Nikon lens technology, I'm in.

This camera has great promise. Hopefully they can come out with a cheaper non-waterproof version too. i think the main obstacle is not the camera but the means to view the output. At this point, I think most of us would be viewing this on a dual monitor setup, but for those who dont have dual monitors, i dont see how this is a practical camera, except in anticipation of a better future viewing setup.

So, besides weight, the CF model is the same as the Aluminum model, except for the leg -- the one you have to throw in with the payment, and maybe an arm along with it. ;)

Lawn Lends: Very nice, but I do you really think color detracted from the original image's impact? I desaturate photos or areas of photos for definite artistic effects, but I have my reasons (like when people are in brightly colored clothes distracting from the main subject). Just curious as to why you preferred the photo desaturated, or was that just the effect you wanted and you would have done it in black and white regardless?

Oh so it is. Didnt notice that, just saw the photo appear in the right hand column. :)

Yes, that makes sense. I was just thinking that it was sad to lose some green in the trees and that it was all cloudy so that everything would have been shades of gray other than some green in the trees.

On article Adapted Lens Talk: Readers' Showcase and new forum! (195 comments in total)
In reply to:

ProfHankD: I use over 140 non-native lenses with my Sonys (and an EOS-M), and I post plenty in various forums here... but there are a couple of problems with this new forum. Basically, it tends toward lens reviews, but:

1. It isn't structured (nor indexed) in a way that makes lenses easy to find.

2. There is a huge difference between using a lens on different formats (e.g., 24MP APS-C vs. 24MP FF) and there is no infrastructure for saying what evaluations are based on.

For example, Dyxum has a much more effective structure for user lens reviews (except they don't make posting sample images easy).

I'm not opposed to this new forum, and I post there myself, but I would encourage DPReview to consider making some custom infrastructure for handing user reviews of old lenses. It should be possible to modify the existing equipment review infrastructure to have the right fields and indexing and to allow review of legacy equipment.... Just something to think about. ;-)

The forum is searchable, that will have to do for now. On other forums (I frequent BMW forums such as e90post.com DIY forum) somebody will put a "sitcky" post at the top of the forum and create an index of threads with links to the threads in the forum. That person continues to update the stick thread by editing it when new things are discussed. Maybe that can happen in this forum.

PeaceKeeper: You have to register to fly an object that weighs up to 55lbs with spinning blades on it and can hover inches over peoples' heads in their own backyard?

You're joking.

My rights are being trampled on.

Next you'll tell me I have to register to steer 2 ton pieces of steel down public streets at 65mph!

bobnarber, did somebody has copy my super-secret design for a leaf-blower powered UAV?

Agreed, this is a travesty of justice.
Next thing you know they will be complaining about the Hellfire missiles I have strapped to my licensed UAV. :(
What is this country coming to????

ozgoldman: Perhaps in future the contributor could recognise that they are displaying content to a world market. Just how many people would recognise who the FAA is?
Many readers would have no idea.

Well, I think everybody can make a good guess as to what the "F" stands for.

In reply to:

ZoomBoy: This in NOT a drone registration - it is a DRONE OPERATOR registration. Once registered, you'll have to label each drone you fly with your license number.

What are you droning on about?

J Mountford: When I used to be a hunter, a gazallion years ago, I had a pair of gloves like that that had a cover over the shooting finger at a fraction of the price.

Nothing new here, don't waste your money, just buy a pair of shooters gloves and if you really need the SD card holder, sew a little pocket on it.

Agreed, in fact, this whole thread made me realize that I need new gloves for my winter trip to Little Yosemite Valley, I will have to check into Mel Cottons before I leave because I plan to take a lot of photos and it could be very cold.
