On article 2016 Challenge of Challenges winners announced (62 comments in total)

Though I like the wining pictures, I feel them to edited. I know, I do it myself to enhance them. But I really miss to see more natural looking in the top.
The winning glowing sunset in Myanma pic is nice, but looks more like a painting so much it is edited.

I like some of the footage, I just find the video editing bad. I would have shorten the video to a half.

Picturenaut: I think many of those complaining about the lack of a fragile articulated screen do not get for what purposes such a rugged camera is made. My 5D3 for sure would be already broken if it didn't have a fixed screen in a massive body, I use it frequently for wildlife shooting in quite tough environments.

Since the 5D4 now has - finally! - WiFi you can use your smartphone as a super flexible additional screen if you need that.

I find it so awkward shooting video without an articulated screen. It makes my body articulation totally unfit for good camera motion. Canon should make 2 versions of the cam as they did with the 5Ds.

Previously i always carried my DSLR around. The fact that i use a smartphone today for snapshots is not size. it is simply because Canon won’t put wifi integrated in their high end models. and it is needed for that kind which usually ends up in social media.

On article Behind the Shot: Watery Grave (94 comments in total)

This is a very nice photo, but i agree with many posters that the vignetting is to much, i find it actually way to much especially on the top corners. The black stone does not help picture balance, it gives it an arty effect, but would be much more pleasing without, and give it more “calmness” and better story telling.

Scottelly: Fankly, I'm surprised it's less than $100,000 dollars. You'd think something made by NASA or for NASA would be really expensive, just because of what it represents. Imagine having one of Henry Ford's cars or a suit, horse, or hat belonging to George Washington? How about a pen used by Thomas Jefferson or better yet, how about a quill and ink well used by Shakespeare? One day this stuff will be legendary, and people in the future will pay big money to get anything from Earth, let alone something like a telescopic lens, which represents our curiosity about space and other planets and stars, solar systems, and galaxies, where most humans will live one day, in maybe as little as 100 years. Give something like this to a child, who is 5 or 6 now, but will be 20 or 30 when given something like this, and that child may get a large fortune for it in 100 years, when people are living an average of 150 years or more and space travel is as normal as air travel is today.

Scottelly, this lens might take very nice pictures of a 5 miles asteroid on a path to hit earth and extinct human race.

Sailor11677: This would seem to have vast privacy and security applications and ultimately, implications. It is somewhat ironic that the sample photo is what appears to be a third-world market where one might assume terrorists or other subversives could frequent.

@Ozyxy, No privacy might be fine in a world with human rights, democracy and so on. Imagine in a decade your democratic government replaced by a dictature with control of that technologi. I live in a country that just went from democracy to dictatorship, and some get arrested for their voice on social networks.

DaveE1: Considering I can't put together a coherent sentence myself after seeing some photos, this technology must be impressive ;)

edit, deleted because responding to wrong person. Sorry

the minor test i did with Canon, i found the TTL unreliable. nothing beats manual mode for control anyway.

I think that on sites as FaceBook, you will find most stolen images. But they remove EXIF & IPTC data on picture uploads. I never understood why?

In reply to:

bigdaddave: Anyone worried about sharpness or dynamic range?

No, of course not because when the subject matter is so fantastic stuff like that really doesn't matter at all. Nor should it.

I remember that time, gear nerds didn’t talk much camera gear, as all cameras more or less had same features. Tech talk was more focused on lens, film type, film developer and mixture, paper types…

nicolas guilbert: I know the article was based on tools when shooting. but i would like to hear as well on tools to rate pictures. I usualy upload the whole content of a photoshoot on my iPad. it is frustrating not being able to rate pictures or at least get a file name info on the native apps. Any suggestions for an app doing that.

Thanks for the useful links. I just bought photo manager pro, looks it gives me rating capabilities.

I don't know much about alternative grips to EOS 5D's, But i can't imagine they are worse than the originals. Canon's grips in that segment are total garbage. Bad Ergonomics and plastic gears that breaks. I long after a grip with the quality they did to EOS1 film bodies.
