On article DPReview TV: Sony RX10 IV Review (281 comments in total)

I bought into the RX series with the RX10.1, then updated to the RX10.2. I agree with the minivan tag, but sometimes utility outweighs panache. Since the 10.2 I've liked some of what they're doing, Sony keeps removing things that made the first two models so much fun. If they'd added 5 axis stabilization, kept the ND filter, and chosen to keep the 24-200mm constant aperture I might be able to stomach the price. For now, the RX10.2 stays in the bag alongside my GH4.

On article Flashpoint 180 Monolight Review (49 comments in total)

This seems like a good value. It wasn't that long ago I paid more than this for just a portable battery to shoot outdoors. At this price you get a low cost strobe that doesn't make you paranoid to use in uncontrolled outdoor environments. Watching a $500-$1000 mono light topple over in the wind isn't a good feeling.

On photo 1 in the M like Merrill challenge (12 comments in total)

Wonderful image and capture of the moment. The exposure for her face rather than worrying about the highlights *is* excellent.

Still have and like Flickr but the integration of the groups needs a LOT of work. Most are dead zones where people dump loads of images looking for public approval. Most groups are dead zones with little to no discussion, except for a few like Strobist. Smugmug is still where I post galleries as Flickr has never been able to supplant their focused presentation capabilities. I have zero interest in services such as Tumblr which makes you agree to allow them to use your images even if you delete your account. Flickr still has an opportunity to be something original that both protects photographers while enabling them to come together in a compelling way.

On article Interview: Tetsuya Yamamoto of Nikon (194 comments in total)

Did he pinky swear on it? :)

Too late, after a decade of all things Nikon I've pretty much dumped them for alternatives that better suit my needs.

Nothing about this is *for* the consumer, just about media industry paranoia and control freak mentality. As a photographer this does nothing for me and probably will result in camera and PC issues because making something more complex than it has to be is never a good thing.

Want to know how bad the media companies want to tilt the table in their favor without regard to what it costs their customers? Just google for SOPA.

LiSkynden: This is almost exactly like the old Sony DSC-F717 from the year 2000 or something ....

I was thinking exactly the same thing!

It will remain to be seen whether their performance, reliability and support will be on par with Eye-Fi. My experience on all counts with them has been superb.

On photo Moonrise over Airstreams, Alaska in the Flattery: Imitation challenge (7 comments in total)

Easily my favorite of the challenge as I love the humor. Of all the shots in the challenge this is the only one I'd probably hang a print of in my own office.

I'd be curious for the story behind this shot. It looks quite compelling. Nicely done!
