In reply to:

lambert4: A nice review, as someone who constantly checks out the drone market but has only played with the "toy" category, this seemed informative and easy to understand.

I wonder how it compares to the Mavic Pro though, in my mind it was the compact DJI not the Phantom?

From what I've read the remotes aren't interchangeable. But either can be operated from a cell phone or tablet with the DJI4GO app.

Lambert: [chuckle] I had 'gateway drone' in a previous edit, GMTA [g]
Falconeyes: While I should have purchased the Mavic instead, I don't regret at all having the Spark as well, for the reasons you raised.

Be careful of the Spark. I got one because I wasn't sure how I'd take to droning, but it looked to be a good way to get the best one can in an affordable kit. Well, soon after I wanted a bit more still image quality. It's gotten me into video in a way I hadn't up until now. I'm waiting now on a Mavic Pro Platinum delivery (but already have the Mavic rig for non-flight stabilized video). I should have just jumped on a Mavic at the get-go.

Not for me, but I have to say it's rather clever.

Good. Let C1 up their game, and everyone else (including Adobe) should want to up theirs too.

At first glance I thought - sensor vacuum / cleaner?

On second glance. . . hmmm.

I like it. . . it's almost too bad I'm already invested in ThinkTank belt/pouch system, but not quite.

Someone surely may, but I don't think I'm up to handling "character" of that nature. Lust-b-gone!

Svetoslav Popov: LR Classic will stay bloated, and everyone who wants to get a better running program will need to change to LR CC. Adobe doing what Adobe does best: please the shareholders and alienate the customers.

"LR Classic will stay bloated. . . "

LR Classic runs much faster than the prev. CC version. Color me un-alienated, and uninterested in LR CC v1, at the moment.

There's always someone worse, or worse off, than ourselves. Sadly reassuring, but I'll take it.

[chuckle] that was my first thoughts re this workstation as well.

That would have been me 10-20 years ago, but not today. I don't care if that makes me wiser or more a wuss than I was then, because I simply don't bounce like I used to any more.

braisim: The best thing about the video for me is the way the guy nonchalantly walks away from the scene after being blasted by the wave. Class.

What was the best thing, again?

In reply to:

composed: Great tool for some, I am sure.

Personally I prefer serendipity.

I hear that, but then again a little loose planning can mean all the difference for serendipity. It helps me, anyway, such as when I'd like to get a nice colorful sunset but the forecast calls for overcast downpours, and like that.

Whenever I return to a location with intentions of doing it "one better", I'm reminded of the riddle, "Never take the same photo twice." (There was a time I used to try [chuckle])

Pieces of art that have the potential to create art? Cool.

I come to news comments for the entertainment in negativity - very pleased to be disappointed today.

I used to want to share locations of lovely places I've visited. 15 years later and I return to many of these locations to find them overwhelmed with people and the garbage that has been left behind. The worst are edges of bodies of water where old bait containers, fishing line, and worse are to be found littered about.

At this point I limit my sharing of locations to specific individuals rather than invite the world (mainly, where it relates to rural locations).

On article Ten ways to shake 'photographer's block' for good (90 comments in total)

When I would get into a rut I would go out with only the worst lens I have (or the least respected), and challenge myself to make something with it. The act would be akin to getting a new lens or camera, where I'd be more focused initially on how the gear performs than content. At those times I'll shoot thing I normally wouldn't consider when not in 'test' mode. And I'd often surprise myself with what I did come back with. The act would refresh my perspective and bring back the mojo that had faltered.
