  • I tend to think of being wowed by something as much tougher than being simply interested in.  That's not to say there's not a lot of great technology coming out from a number of different places, ...
  • Replied in Sunrise watchers
    We still get to see beautiful light, but we are up in time to get stuff done. Sunsets are nice, too.  Except when they happen at 4:30.
  • You have to be pretty far on the "get off my lawn" spectrum to be bothered by people using a tool in a way other than what you use it for.  I say good for them!  I doubt the people recording shows ...
  • Replied in I do!
    Two bodies and a child carrier backpack (occasionally with an additional lens tucked away in storage). One APS-C camera with telephoto lens for wildlife and a FF camera with zoom for scenery. Not ...
  • Forgive if I'm a bit skeptical of a poll with 30 responses.  Certainly the majority of the DPR FF forum participants who are interested in a thread about on chip ADC are interested in a camera ...
  • I'm not quite sure what you mean. It's definitely a great-to-have feature, but I assume people that are running into technical limitations with the 5 series DR and the wherewithal to upgrade every ...
  • if you ever you find yourself asking "why doesn't Company X include feature Y" there are usually three possibilities: 1.  They don't know how 2.  They legally aren't allowed to 3. It won't make ...
  • Even 1% is a likely overestimate. And that's ok.  Plenty of products make sense in even smaller markets when they have professional applications.  Phantom and Photron both have pretty large ...
  • I am likely going to buy the 5DsII, assuming it comes out in 3-4 years, in 4-5 years when the price has come down.  I have a relatively new (bought this year) 6D and rarely feel limited by it. ...
  • but I'm not really sure what you're going on about.  For raw image quality (all else being equal) bigger is better.  It's also more expensive, harder to carry, and innovation is tougher. I take a ...
  • If you don't know how to use them it will generally be considered a waste of money, however. People take all sorts of gear seriously and either dislike or actively disdain those who spend money ...
  • Replied in No.
    Does your neighbor shoot beautiful images?  I would guess you need even less than an SLR in full auto to shoot beautiful images.  It can certainly be done on an SLR in full auto.  It can be done on ...
  • In March 2012 €1 was $1.32. Now it is $1.13. The European price in dollars in 2012 was $4354. The European price in dollars in 2016 is $4593. Another way of thinking about it is that if you flew to ...
  • Canon has clearly demonstrated that they don't want to use third party sensors.  If they were going to, I think they'd take the universally highly-regarded Sony sensor instead of what amounts to a ...
  • I think the rule is pretty simple: if someone can stare with their eyes the can usually shoot with their camera. People expect privacy in their homes and under their clothes. If someone sticks ...
  • I see this type of behavior on other forums and don't think it is specific to DPR. I can think of four possible reasons: 1.  The respondent has a useful answer and doesn't think the restriction is ...
  • You only get a small amount of time.  Don't waste it worring about making a entirely future- proof purchase.  SLRs are well established and won't disappear in ten years.  And if they do disappear ...
  • I think it means that Canon is good at the things professional photojournalists actually care about. Whether that is reliability, support, ubiquity, ease of use, or simply bribing photojournalists ...
  • i agree that the telephoto landscape is great, but I usually end up with a hazy mush.  Maybe you have figured out good ways around that problem.
  • Thanks again. Some of that made sense. Are there books you could recommend so I don't hijack this thread with dumb questions?
