CameraCarl: Exciting new plane with narrower than ever seats and even less legroom. "Pretty cool" if you are a millionaire and can ride in first class; cramped and uncomfortable for everyone else.

To quote Travel and Leisure, May 24, 2017: "Last year, United found a way to add the equivalent of 14 planes to its fleet by moving seats closer together on its existing aircraft. Earlier this month, American announced it will add 10 more economy seats on each new Boeing 737 MAX by reducing seat pitch. " And "In 2014, author Bill McGee compared seat sizes from 1985 through 2014 on four major airline carriers: American, Delta, United, and Southwest. On average, economy class seat widths decreased 2 to 3 inches, and seat pitch (the distance between your seat and the seat in front of you) decreased 2 to 5 inches."

DPR: thanks for keeping us up to date on firmware updates. While some may whine that this isn't exactly earthshaking news, or that this doesn't turn a Jetta into a Carrera, this is useful information.

weixing: Look at the design and specification, it's basically the Sony version of the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II...

400 grams lighter and $500 heavier.

CameraCarl: I am having difficulty reading between the lines. Will this lens fit/work on the a6000-6500 series cameras without an adaptor?

I found the SEL 70-300 G to be a bit big and awkward. My right hand started cramping up after an hour or so of shooting because there is so little of the camera to grip. It might be better with a battery grip.

But still no fix for the side panel black out issue that has been affecting Mac users for five months with versions LR CC 2015.9 and higher. The best we get is an annoying workaround or the suggestion that we roll back to CC 2015.7 or .8.

On article Throwback Thursday: Minolta's prosumer DiMAGE 7 (207 comments in total)

It was a nice camera but later version had sensor failure problems. Unfortunately I missed the notice about replacement sensors so wound up tossing it in the trash. I would have cost hundreds of dollars to put a new Sony sensor in it.

On article Grab a free copy of DxO OpticsPro 9 while you can (187 comments in total)

Odd that the Canon 7D Mark II, released over two years ago is not on the list of supported cameras. Apparently it isn't even supported in the latest version.

I sure hope Pete makes a book of his photos.

My do I miss the days of slide photography where "what you see is what you shot" and the skills of the photographer were predominant... not the skills of the software developer. When I captured an accurately exposed image of a rainbow, you can be assured that there was really a rainbow there, and that I had the skills to expose it properly, and that my composition and crop were the result of years of work and art.

Whoo-hoo, but where is the price cut on the Lightning to USB Camera adaptor? Thanks for giving me a price cut on everything I don't need! Everybody now: ding dong the dongle is dead....

Excuses, excuses. With a little bit of "let them eat cake" thrown in.
I can't believe WiFi can transfer images as quickly as a built in card reader. And I for sure don't want to have to carry all the adaptors now needed to plug any card reader or external hard drive into Apple's proprietary socket. I'm going to either buy a refurb prior gen laptop from Apple with USB3 or check out the Windows machines.

On article Canon EOS M5: What you need to know (564 comments in total)
In reply to:

zeratulmrye: Looks like an A6000 equipped with touchable selfie-screen + more controls + better EVF (at least more pixels, don't know about the magnification since no one ever mentioned it...). A6000 is $550 and M5 is $980, do all these features really worth the $430 price gap?

It would be really interesting to see what happened if Sony make a touchscreen version of A6000, but...seems like they're also pretty lazy recently. Two years for only one APS-C body, geez.

But don't forget that the a6000 you mention is a three year old camera and that the a6300, Sony's newest APS-C mirrorless is $998, somewhat lower in price than when it was first introduced. So the real price gap apples to apples is more like $18 in Canon's favor!

Mais78: How do I know if Creative Cloud deleted any of my files?

Dr Jon, thanks again. I tried your suggestion. It worked and there were indeed files inside the directory.

I can't tell. I type:
ls -la /.DocumentRevisions-V100
and get a message Permission Denied

Thanks. I followed your directions and found that I still have .DocumentRevisions-V100 listed first in my root directory, so the CC glitch apparently did not affect me. Phew!

Mais78: How do I know if Creative Cloud deleted any of my files?

Many of us are not computer experts and never look in the root folder (especially now that Apple has hidden it from us). I had no idea what was in the first directory was before the CC debacle, so if I check now, how can I know if anything was deleted?

Dust and moisture resistant -- but only with FE lenses. What good is that? I bought into the NEX/alpha series for compact cameras and lenses.

On article A classic reinvented? Domke Chronicle Review (124 comments in total)

Domke makes great bags but I wonder about this one. The price is way too high -- getting into Billington territory -- yet Domke now substitutes plastic clips and hardware for the metal parts they used to claim were critical to the function of the brand. ThinkTank, here I come.
