On article Nikon D850: What we hoped for – and what we got (404 comments in total)
In reply to:

nathantw: And because of the video feature I still need to hang onto the D700 if I want to take it into an NBA game. Sigh. The only alternative is the Df that's a bit long in the tooth now.

The D700 with the grip is wonderful to use since it gives 8fps. It's just like using any camera that's made for sports. If you're okay with 12 MP then it's definitely a nice camera. However, a lot of camera tech has come since the D700's introduction 10 years ago. A newer dx Nikon could be a better deal at this point.

String: Not to worry; Trumps will be the best portrait ever taken and will sell for more money than any photograph in history!

But photographs today are a dime a dozen, if even that. If he just lifts his finger for one second the strobes go off like crazy and suddenly there's 20 frames of the same image.

He may have had a Broadway musical first. ;-)

maxnimo: What I wonder is what the original photos of Cleopatra, Nefertiti, Helen of Troy, Ishtar and Jesus would be worth.

If you can scrape them off the walls without damaging them you can see how much they'll sell for at auction.

It's actually quite mind boggling thinking how long photography has been around and how young the United States as a country actually is. We're talking its independence in 1776 and this photograph being taken in 1843 less than 70 years later.

nathantw: That's right. When cleaning the room sweep the dirt and glass shards under the cabinets. Don't bother with a dust pan.

Thanks guys. My mistake.

On article Throwback Thursday: Adobe Lightroom 1.0 (124 comments in total)

I remember seeing a demo on this at a photo show before it came out. I was pretty excited to try it out. When a free demo came out I loaded it on my computer and it proceeded to crash whenever I wanted to do something. No buy. Tried LR2 and LR3 and still no go. I'm not sure why that was the case but it just wasn't in the cards for me. Then LR5 came out and it was pretty stable without any blue screens or errors. That's when I purchased it. I didn't understand the use of it back then, but I kept up with it. Now I understand it's not just a picture organizer and it's more useful than that. I use it almost all the time and today with CC I have the latest version all the time.

Franz Kerschbaum: New for Nikon but for Canon we have this very useful design since 2011 ...

The problem is that the Canon design didn't fit the Nikon F-mount very well.

They'll announce shortly after the Nikon D850.

I don't own Canon equipment but I'm appreciative of seeing the service and support centers.

On article Ten things we're hoping for from the Nikon D850 (481 comments in total)
In reply to:

De Kuijper Fotografie: Minimum of 50mp sensor
Minimum of 8 bps
Onboard GPS,wifi
In body vertical grip
Same price as d810, otherwise it will be too expensive regarding sony A7r ii for instance. Canon overpriced it's d5 with $1000
Significant less weight
Af system of d5
Big improvement of High Iso, base Iso at 50
Silent electronic shutter with no resonance
Adjustable screen with high resolution
In body VR as Sony has

What are you talking about? 8bps? Is that 8 beats per second like in music? So the D850 is a slow music player? I'd prefer it to have over 100bps, but that's me. Canon and their D5? You mean 5D?

JT26: It just proves a point that hardly any realise... Modern tech has surpassed the technical quality of film so many times over that even the oldest and most out dated
sensors can create magic.

National Geographic don't play that way, Homey. Not much black and white in the magazine.

I was about to say "a 10 year old camera? That's a D700!" Then I quickly scanned to see what camera was used and it was a D3. Well, I was close enough. ;-)

Ian: I followed the same advice when I saw one of the final Space Shuttle launches and I'm glad I did. Seeing it is a far better memory than some crappy photo...and I plan to do the same with the eclipse, cheap sunglasses and all!

LOL! Good one.

aven59: Macro photography can't be done with a MF camera. Period.

I've even taken close-up pictures of moss using a 4x5 view camera. Oh right, he said "medium format" not large format.
