  • Unfortunately for standalone cameras the biggest problem is the part of the workflow where you need to start using a second device. Most people are content with cell phone pictures.  The crowd ...
  • Eventually it will break such that the replacement cost is less than or equal to the repair cost.
  • There are sliders on it that allow you to essentially fix it into place.  I can keep my camera on my leg pretty well.  With the 400mm lens it flops around on me even with those engaged, but that's ...
  • I use the BlackRapid RS1.  It works fine with a backpack, even the large-ish child carrier I sometimes use.  I don't notice the weight and unless I'm carrying my 400 f/5.6 lens it just stays out ...
  • I have two girls that are also always on the move 6D with too many lenses Your kids will almost certainly be unhappy with all those embarrassing photos.  Their future spouses will appreciate it, ...
  • What with all the shooting it does.
  • Replied in Vat ?
    No.  First, there is no US sales tax.  Each state has its own sales tax.  If you order from B&H and don't live in New York, they don't collect any tax at all.  As an international buyer you don't ...
  • People without problems are out shooting. People with problems post thread after angry thread. Even if the defect rate is astronomically low it's almost never zero.
  • You're on the right track with your later comment.  Not only do cameras not actually read RGB values, it's not generally true that there really even are RGB values.  If you were to take the best ...
  • Replied in Not me
    Ideas are separate from the people who have them. The idea that the only opinions of value are based on "real world experience" isn't true in general.  It's easy enough to distinguish people who ...
  • Some sources of noise are per pixel rather than per area.  More pixels means more of those sources of noise.  As more pixels don't increase the amount of signal the total SNR has to go down. ...
  • You don't have to act in the same way, but some who wants to can.  Backwards comparability is good to keep unless it comes at too high a cost.  From what I see most people who care deeply about ...
  • ...but you couldn't infer what I meant by context? There is an ISO standard for digital sensors just like there was one for film ( here is the standard ) and it allows one to use cameras in ...
  • Its called the exposure triangle because it helps you set the proper exposure. I asked about replacing f-stop with aperture diameter. All of what you said is both a) true and b) not particularly ...
  • If you don't want to call it redefining the nomenclature that's fine.  Whatever you call it, is it useful enough that we should abandon the conventional exposure triangle?  Is there any use ...
  • Who?  Do they read long posts on DPR? Anyone who bothers to read through this probably already knows.  I hope you're letting off some steam from some other thread... It's useful for comparing ...
  • That would be a lot of work for what amounts to a few internet points.  First he'd have to learn what it is that makes the look distinctive (which isn't likely something most people would even ...
  • The foxes in my neighborhood are much more skittish.  These almost look like pets!
  • An answer to the age old question "why do you need to lift shadows five stops?"
  • People usually don't just come out and say "nostalgia".  If you have people saying that they're using some older technology because of the way it feels in their hand or because it gives a certain ...
