  • Here's my set of stacked photos taken a few years ago with non-smartphone equipment (a DSLR camera and a 200mm lens). I'm interested seeing any stacked smartphone images of the same target (M42 / ...
  • Depends on your definition of 'fan' I suppose, but I'm quite sure most Canon and Nikon users will think something boring along the lines "haven't used one, I suppose it's OK".
  • It seems that the pictures are actually 2000x1499 pixel images, even though the gallery UI doesn't seem for some reason to offer a way to view them at the actual resolution. With Chrome the way to ...
  • That's getting a bit Transformers'y compared to the regular car analogies :) (about the original poster's question; unfortunately I have no useful suggestions as my last two phones have been S4 ...
  • Do you need to be a pro to want to have a wide range of focal lengths, control between deep and shallow depth of field and better low-light performance amongst other things? Just to clarify, I have ...
  • I carry most of the time with me a camera bag that also acts as a bag for generic everyday stuff like an USB charger, USB powerbank or two, some book, occasional spare clothing, a small bottle of ...
  • Well, if you think and the people who will primarily view the pictures are going to be satisfied and you don't expect to miss additional things your DSLR gear could provide if wanted, then you're ...
  • Well, expensive is not mandatory; a second-hand DSLR or MILC camera and a lens or two is quite a bit cheaper for a hobbyist than latest and greatest. Or even a smartphone; while they have their ...
  • The "battle" primarily reminds of time wasted on non-essential things, instead of enjoying whatever camera people happen to have :)
  • Sure. I own primarily Canon lenses as they have a very comprehensive selection for most purposes. However, for example Samyang's 14mm f/2.8 was a very obvious purchase for affordable aurora and ...
  • There's hardly need to be rude if someone has different preferences in lenses than you.

  • Personally I'm fine with lenses the size/weight of this or somewhat more, including keeping several with me daily as long as they have a reason for it (large aperture, excellent image quality etc)....

  • The sample photo 4 also has a few reflections on the wall near top left edge, which look suspiciously like they have some coma around them. However, I reserve the right to be wrong about what I...

  • The largest lens I carry daily with me (Canon's 100-400mm mk II) is heavier than any of these (weight for 24-70 f/2.8 is not given, but I don't think that will exceed it either) and I am...

    I enjoy the flexibility provided by my gear far too much and even though I don't use some of my gear frequently, I don't feel the need to sell less-used items. However, this falls under the ...
  • I tried Rawtherapee about an year ago after getting disillusioned with pace of AfterShot Pro's development and wanted to see if it could be replaced with an open source solution. Haven't looked...

  • Actually, now I remember getting a "what are you doing?" inquiry from a security guard after all when I was taking a night-time picture of the university where I was studying (and doing part - ...
  • I don't recall this happening to me. The closest I can think of was when a self-service train ticket machine had crashed and displayed an error message which I took a picture of with my DSLR. A ...
