    Well then, What do you call the thing that sits on your desk or lap that you use to post process or save your photos? or inside your phone? A computer perhaps. Why is it still called a computer. ...

    The uber pedants out there should call smartphones by their full name: handheld computer using an integrated mobile broadband connection via radio frequency links for voice, SMS and internet data ...

    Cell phone is just a generic nomenclature. Just as in a Toyota leaf is a car, As is a Ferrari. Yes the Ferrari would technically be a "super" car. But a car none the less. I have an Iphone 7 plus ...
  • That easy to answer chipmaster. It becomes an issue and folks get annoyed and fire back in kind when cell phone photogs announce the impending death of dedicated cameras on a camera forum. They ...
  • I was wondering when "burnt to a crisp" would come along and talk about Mirrorless. :-) I'm sure a mirrorless camera will end up curing cancer, Stop global warming or fly humans to Mars one day. I ...
  • I still look at and use paper maps when traveling and checking out new photo ops off the beaten path. Looking at a map of the surrounding area of ones route opens up new opportunities that simply ...
  • I guess I'm one of those that does. Both of the wrist watches I wear are mechanical. So I change them when i arrive in my destination time zone. Although I will be getting my first smartphone (I ...
  • Replied in Camera clocks.
    I find this thread fascinating as to what people think about such things. We are a pedantic (needlessly so) species aren't we? Both my cameras were an hour behind even with DST set to "on". I only ...

  • Very good then. As it's the internet. Sarcasm and a sick thought are hard at best to distinguish from one another without an emoticon as context.
  • Did I just hear irony bells ringing? The thing that disgusted you is the thing you would like to see happen to him and you would give it an award?  So what's that make you then? But then it is the ...
  • And that's where the line between hobby and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder lay.
  • And unless one uses construction grade pine, quality lumber isn't cheap either.
  • Well when you show the average gen X or millennial a photo of Ronald Reagan. They will mostly (but not always) scratch their heads till it bleeds trying to figure out who the old guy is. Or show ...
  • But then one starts to leave the realm of photography (or any hobby) as a hobby if you start making stuff to sell. Of course it's a fuzzy line to be sure. Astronomy is another expensive hobby to ...
  • What I always enjoy is when someone comes along and posts up a question. THEN GOES MISSING. I still marvel at the folk who say you need a camera based on what type of shooting one is doing. Really? ...
  • One thing to realize about the D500 and the press it gets in reviews about the use of the camera. You can slow down a fast camera, But it's impossible to get a slow camera to go fast.
  • The two I do the most are 1, forgetting that bracketing is on and then not taking three shots. 2, grabbing the camera for a subject that just popped up and not adjusting the aperture for the proper ...
  • With my recent experience with UPS. I'm loath to use them again. Sent a telescope I sold from Wa. to Pa. Also bought insurance. It was packaged at the UPS store. It was surrounded by 4-5" of ...
