I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now?

wetsleet: Finally a bag that purports to be natively weather resistant, instead of toting a stupid "rain-cover". However some kind of IP rating would be useful. Does it keep out water spray from all directions, or only rain falling from above? What about dust?

I agree, it's nice to have an alternative in a shoulder bag to Billingham.

As for the questions, it should be obvious - it'll take a downpour, but not a dunking.

Bob Tullis: A very familiar scene. . . admirably conveyed. Kudos to you.

I know what you mean, luck of atmosphere of the moment. But this didn't come out of the camera like that. You had an opportunity and both afield and in post managed to MAKE a wonderfully engaging photograph. That's all. ;)

kasjun: Believe it or not, nothing is completely safe. Nothing.

DtEW - I suppose that's enough for a conviction. Couldn't be more innocent than it appears, or a poor choice of words. Hang him, then.

DtEW - We both made assumptions with different perspectives on the comment coming to mind - unless Kasjun follows up here we won't know who's made the wrong assumption on that short comment. He's not wrong in that statement, but what WAS his (her?) attitude and reasoning?

DtEW - Get a grip. I've been up in this company's helicopters, and to do so I had to go fatalistic. Kasjun didn't say anything more than what I had to tell myself - and it has nothing to do with this tragedy's victims.

You can skewer me too for not writing a paragraph on the personal tragedy aspect, but I'm not talking about that aspect of the event right now.

In reply to:

tecnoworld: Everybody's crazy with IBIS, forgetting that it's useful ONLY for totally static subjects.

IMO a Samsung NX1 is still better than this camera, thanks to its better sensor.

P.s. tell me one use case where ibis is useful to capture, eg, a moving toddler or a car

Where the exposure is such that the shutter speed can still freeze motion, but with an allowance for not needing as high a shutter speed as one might w/o a stabilized assist, or as high an ISO.

IBIS/OIS not freezing motion is a "Duh" already. It's designed to give an assist for handheld movements, it was never touted as something that freezes subject motion.

IBIS doesn't freeze motion? Who knew?

Wil Helm: This is like a longtime explosure of a moth flying under a streetlight. You dont see a detailed Image of the insect, but a vague cloud of the flight paths it took during the Exposition Time. Is it a real Photography? Its a very blurred photography, but it is a photography.

I thought an explosure was what you call it when zooming a lens during an exposure.

Doesn't Adobe have a responsibility to provide assistance to those they've traumatized?
No one wants to talk about Adobe's role in the opioid crisis, and until that's faced those traumatized by the subscription plan have no hope of recovery.

When a client has to supply the words to have the photos attain the thousand word description threshold, it's never a good sign.

In reply to:

biggercountry: How dare they charge so much for a computer when I can build one with an AMD Faceripper with 34 cores for $100. How dare they charge a $13000 premium for aesthetics. It's a crime against humanity. Apple must be stopped. C'mon DPReviewers, muster the troops and flame Apple out of existence!!!

Apple's doing that to themselves. No need to expend any energy for that.
