  • This reminds me of the first 4K TVs to hit the market. They were expensive, clumsy, and didn't have proper standards support/compatibility, leaving many early adopters frustrated. However, enough ...
  • There are plenty -- and i suspect a growing number of -- links online that use "more bokeh." Don't think the meaning of a word can change over time? Think again! In fact, there's an entire field ...
  • Oh no, is that what happens when you "poke the bear?!!" It plans a road-trip to... nowhere? Say, if you're after more of a challenge, I have an idea: why don't you plan a road trip to photograph ...
  • People are defending Canon by saying that the R5 is an excellent stills camera with some video features, and that is just how Canon positioned it. But that's not quite the case. That is how Nikon ...
  • Yep. Seen all kinds of photo and video gear, peacefully wielded, and importantly, documenting police instigation of violence. Other far more dangerous areas exist. For e.g., as the Washington Post ...
  • Floor plans don't tell the whole story.  I've seen places where the doorways leading into an area were so small almost no furniture could have been introduced into it and others where the ...
  • They do it for the same reason advertisers of, say, cereals or foods, enlarge and oversaturate, then have a tiny disclaimer "not to scale." It is to deceive and skew the viewer's perception in ...
  • Oh? No more than, say,  landscape photography, home to many a composited image? I disagree.
  • Replied in Huh?
    The real victims? Oh, I thought they were the ones who shared her skin color -- you know, the doddering old guard, propped up by its staff, and the doormat on which a rising young generation hungry ...
  • Good point! Does real estate photography even have a code of ethics? It sure needs one!
  • Chris and Jordan, great work!

    Telling it like it is has always been one of your hallmarks (and what got me hooked on your videos long ago (during your time at The Camera Store).

    Your reviews...

  • I had the pleasure of driving a rather capacious, and well-appointed RV around 2000 miles over the past few months. It allowed us to avoid the crowds entirely and worked quite well. A most ...
  • The smart pros (not the ideologues militantly opposed to smartphones) will adapt and survive. Case in point: "Study: smartphone camera use on the rise among pro photographers"
  • Replied in Huh?
    Agreed. The smartphone photos have been especially instrumental in exposing police brutality. Footage of "Naked Athena" was also great.
  • All good questions. It'd be good to see what the real-world impact of this noise reduction is on the R5's sharpness, rendition of fine detail etc. I also wonder whether they've "baked" anything ...
  • Europe, big? Please. Many of its so-called countries are smaller than our states. Moreover, Tesla has been schooling the European automakers, not only emissions-wise, but also in terms of ...
  • You want to talk about cars, start with Renault and how it employs emissions cheat devices. No wonder French automakers flopped and pulled out of the demanding, stringent U.S. market long ago. They ...
  • Replied in The clue
    Plenty of credible reports suggest that the RX100 -- even the latest version -- overheats in 4K, and that whether it does so depends on both camera-intrinsic (eye-AF autofocus, display flush ...
  • Some good points there, you, thunder, and RD. In any case, I hope the Canon AF and IBIS teams keep doing whatever they're doing, because they're clearly doing something right.
  • Good points. People will find workarounds. Just reading a bit in this thread, if one can record an hour of 4K HQ with the Atomos at 60 fps (and maybe down the road, at 120 fps), it would be great.
