On article Beyond the table top: 5 mini tripods reviewed (203 comments in total)

GorillaPod FTW. You can use it on the ground (meh), attach it to a tree, a rock, a fence, a bench in the park, a lamppost or even stick it in a hole in the ice and when not in use, you can attach it to your bag so it goes everywhere with you.

Was the stitching really necessary? The angle of view of the cropped image doesn't look to be wider than 16mm.

Sirandar: How bright would the light have to be to get 18,500 fps ?

At 64x64 resolution? Not very.

maikD: Dear DP, you need a website redesign. The width of the photogallery is 590px, the photos are too small. We are in 2014, not in 2004.

Just make sure you don't make it worse :)

On article Getting off the ground: Cheap drones for photography (156 comments in total)
In reply to:

racin06: I’m an experienced RC airplane and helicopter pilot/enthusiast. I want to clarify the legalities of performing aerial photography with multi-rotor RC helicopters (MRRCH)…I hate the term “drone.” There is no license required to fly a MRRCH as a hobby or for not-for-profit. Currently, it is only illegal if you are flying MRH commercially and/or for pay. Now, even though you may be conducting aerial photography as a hobby or for not-for-profit, there are still rules that must be followed to fly RC aircraft in a safe manner. I strongly encourage visiting the Academy of Model Aeronautics (http://www.modelaircraft.org), which is the sanctioning body for the RC aircraft hobby. These RC aircraft are not toys and command respect and proper training to learn to fly. Anyway, below is a rent video of my flying my electric-powered 87” Sbach 300 RC airplane. This is a fantastic hobby!

No need to count. Let's just call them multicopters.

On article A look at the Lomography Petzval 85mm F2.2 lens (185 comments in total)

Meh, I'll sticky with my Lensbaby. It has better IQ and gives more creative options like tilt and ability to change the shape of the aperture and thus the shape of the bokeh. It's much lighter and cheaper too.

D30 ? Sounds like an old Nikon entry-level DSLR.

bobbarber: I wonder if people will post about the "affordable" price of FF on this thread. I'm sure the 400 2.8 is an awesome lens, but 12 grand? Really?

If you want affordable FF tele lens, go to Tamron (like the new 150-600), or better yet, one of those Samyang reflex lenses.

On article Behind the Shot: Shredded (90 comments in total)

Horizon is crooked. Not using tilt to correct perspective on a tilt-shift lens seems like a failure, but you'd probably get even more black corners then because of the filter setup.

In reply to:

dpscoot: Hhhhmm I wonder if I can downgrade my 700 to a 610?
Afterall 700 is a higher number.......must be a better camera.

Maybe if I pour some dust in?? ;-)

I'd rather downgrade it do D4 then :)

Meh, they probably just replace the D600 plaque with a D610 one, so people stop complaining. Nobody can tell the difference anyway.

In reply to:

mr.izo: they should consider samyang 24 and original canon 24 and 17 ts for this also, for example..

No need for that, you can use a normal cokin filter holder on the samyang 24mm.

In reply to:

artistguy: Agree it would be great if they produce a range of adapters for their other lenses such as the 24 TS.

Exactly.

What for? The 24 TS has a filter thread.

How nice of you to tell us this on day 4 of 5.

Darn, does this mean we'll never get the Uranus camera?

I'd rather ducktape my phone to my DSLR then use this monstrosity.

BTW: Why is this not on connect? It's phone accessory, not a camera.
