On article Throwback Thursday: Canon EOS D30 (139 comments in total)

Didn't know that these early digital camera models were so dangerous. From page 8 of the review: "camera uses the AF illumination lamp to illuminate and reduce the size of the subjects retina before main flash."
I hope not too many innocent retinas were shrunk in those days. ;-)

matthew saville: What a telling sign of the times. "Stories" that are meant to evaporate into oblivion, because we're too busy living in the moment, yearning for our next few seconds of fame, or those extra 100 "likes", whatever...

A "story" used to be a meaningful, lasting collection of images and words; the whole point of a story was for it to stand the test of time, and be passed down from generation to generation.

Obviously this particular trend is just a drop in the bucket, I just hope that we as a society don't lose sight of what is important in life. I hope our grandchildren have something, *anything* at all that is meaningful enough for them to bother looking back on and reminiscing about.

(I write this as I read my great-grandmother's story about her life immigrating to the US, crossing the prairie "a la Laura Ingalls Wilder", and other amazing things.)

In their hunger for the next new exciting thing in life, many people seem not to notice how they actually are wasting their limited time on the blue marble, rushing through their lifes like a high speed train.

The so-called DOF-effect in the example reminds me more of a masked subject with blurred surrounding, than a real depth-of-field. I hope the final results will be a bit better.

On article Details of Google's new photo app leaked (27 comments in total)

Two major features I currently miss:
- 100% zoom. I have to use the app "Quickpic" for that
- The photo app has no view to show just those photos that are taken with my smart phone. If I want to clean up my library of all the pics I don't want to keep I have to go to a PC to do that.

Regarding the reds: Take a look at the photo on the right image border. Here the reds are more natural in the nikon picture, and too much in the canon's. I think the significance of such a shot for the results in real world photos is not so high.
