How do you know he had more skill than he let on. Maybe it was the gear making him better

Boeing skipper: "You can build a windows PC for a much lower price". This is what I did two years ago, spent $2,000 on a custom build. I have so many issues with my PC, I've had rasomwares, viruses, Windows forcing updates on a weekly basis if not more, crashes and various bugs.
Meanwhile, I've used Macbooks at work and when I travel for the past 4 years and I never ever had a single issue with them.
The day Windows become as reliable as Apple products, I'll switch over, but for now I'm looking to replace my PC with the iMac Pro.

And yet here I sit with my 4 year old pc, never having a problem. Although I don't blindly click on links I don't know, so never had ransom ware, I keep my virus checkers up to date so never had a virus, I install all those nasty updates that Microsoft "force" on me and never had a problem. So I've never felt the need to blame the manufacturer for my own mistakes.

When it came time to upgrade a little last year I took the side panel off and plugged in a far more powerful video card that cost a few quid. Rather than being forced to sell the system off and buying whole new vastly overpriced one.

Or somewhere to plug headphones in

If the reporting standard of dpr is now to rip the **** out of overpriced gear, I await the next leica and hassleblad reviews with anticipation.

On article Image style AI can convert paintings to photographs (54 comments in total)

Using 'image style transfer' their AI can convert Monet's impressionist paintings into a much more realistic image that comes close to photo quality, giving you a good idea of the scene that the French painter was looking at when he put down his easel and started to paint.
--------

And thus completely and utterly missing the point of what Monet and impressionism was all about. Awesome for every artistic ignoramus out there. I'm sure they'll sell loads

On article Throwback Thursday: Nikon D70 (220 comments in total)

Great camera. Was the last Nikon to have next to no IR blocking so you could shoot with an IR filter at sensible shutter speeds. Always amused when people spent hundreds converting them to IR when it didn't really need it.

It's a good thing the sensor is so small. If it was proper MF then no chance

so is the wireless transmitter that brick with the filthy great wire hanging out of it? I thought the nikons all had wireless built in these days?

EssexAsh: Still using cs5 and lr6 and they do everything I ever need. I would love to move to capture one but it still can't do the simplest thing like load a tiff file consistently. After scanning in negatives it might only recognise half of them as images. So Adobe might have their faults but at least they recognise image file formats.

Some of them, yes, no idea why it ignores others. I keep downloading the next release 30 day version to test it and they never seem to sort it out. It's bloody annoying as it's a lovely file processor.

No prices revealed. So clearly aimed at the "tragic hipsters with more money than sense" market

photogeek: I find it kind of interesting that Mr Adams is not in any way famous outside the US. That's in a stark contrast (please pardon the pun) to e.g. Henri Cartier Bresson, who is famous worldwide, and deservedly so. I'm not a fan of Adams' work myself. It's good, don't get me wrong, but the amount of praise lavished upon this photographer is entirely too much.

I find it kind of interesting that most yanks are utterly oblivious to anything outside their shorelines.

even cheaper if you buy it from Fuji without a red sticker glued to it.

And while I'm taking photos I can plug my headphones in, chill out and listen to iTunes. Oh wait.

EssexAsh: saw an excellent quote,

"The beauty of the headphone cable is just like the beauty of a tampon string: it is there to help you keep track of a very important item, and help you fish it out of whatever nook and cranny it might have fallen into. Apple's apparent blindness to this blindingly obvious problem is perplexing."

actually, tampons are quite useful for various absorption problems. More than can be said for wireless earphones.
