  • Sure, it's very cumbersome for things like software development or precision photo edits. To be more serious, I like things like Snapseed as much as the next guy or gal for quick and intuitive ...
  • Replied in Print Question
    Darktable 1.6.x supposedly features a printing feature, however I have currently still version 1.4 installed so I have no idea how it works in general (and no idea if that's available on Windows ...
  • Obviously the circumstances vary depending on the genre, band and other factors, but on most indoor concerts I attend (typically rock, pop or electronic music) I don't think I'd hear the shutter ...
  • Replied in what?
    One problem here is that the perception of size and weight differences is subjective to some extend; one person's perceived large difference is another's fairly minor difference. Personally, I own ...
  • Another vote for using them for landscapes; I think on my latest vacation trip I did take more landscape shots with a 100-400mm zoom than with my 16-35mm.
  • I've used my 5D mk III on all non-work travels since I acquired it, no regrets. This summer the longest distance I walked with it in one day while visiting Lewis and Harris in Scotland was 31 and ...
  • Not always; try something like deep-sky astrophotography, where it's often impossible to have good results with a single shot in the first place because the targets are so faint, so the only way ...
  • I am somewhat interested about it based on the rumored specs; supposedly no glass back, should have water and dust protection, SD card slot, headphone jack and generally high-end hardware would ...
  • Some of them definitely suck in a lot of light to feed the sensor.
  • Yup, I was more poking fun for the smartphone default camera apps than dedicated non-DSLR cameras; I don't seriously think it would end up being a mandatory "feature" for dedicated cameras rather ...
  • Unless they end up with a fake playback shutter sound like smartphone default applications seem to do. I've been amused to notice that those are often louder than my 5D mk III's quiet shutter mode :)
  • Yes, Snapseed is excellent. Myself, I use that to process pictures transferred from my DSLR to my phone to do edits before posting them to social media while on the go and it does a quite decent job.
  • I don't know about how many photos Abdouh19 takes per year, but I'd assume for the significant majority of DSLR users something else than the shutter's lifespan is what eventually matters regarding...

  • Replied in How so?
    Same here. Summer vacation trips generally provide a fairly significant portion of my photos I'm satisfied about, even though it's just about 1.5 - 2 weeks of the year. They are not primarily ...
  • Some of the images in the sample gallery are pretty cool and while I think getting a quite similar look in post-processing wouldn't be exactly impossible, being able to get there right away while...

  • Whatever focus point feels right in the current circumstances or what the hardware allows (with my 100-400mm zoom and 1.4x teleconverter only the center point is available anyway, so the decision ...
  • I'm not traveling myself, but I know a few fellow Finnish amateur astronomy folks who are going there.
  • I agree that the lack of it is bizarre; it really isn't a particularly expensive feature and while the device has plenty of internal storage and cloud services are all the rage, it's just nice to...

  • As seems to be the case for many others, this was my first digital camera. I had only ever used a film point'n'shoot and on a whim, wanted to buy something that would both offer proper manual...

  • Myself, I do keep a DSLR and a few lenses with me most of the time in the daily life. Primary exceptions are along the lines of going just to the nearby supermarket or going to the gym (the ...
