On article Photokina 2016: Hands-on with Olympus OM-D E-M1 II (649 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dallas Dahms: I really wish they would have made two versions of this camera, one with the tilting screen (like the Fuji XT-2)for stills photographers and another for the video people with their flip-out screen.

The flip out screen is truly horrible for photography. It gets in the way and makes using an L-plate impossible if you want to articulate the screen. For this reason I won't be looking to upgrade.

[chuckle] On the other hand, the loss of tilt for landscape orientations will in turn offer a look-down screen for portrait orientations using an L-bracket on a tripod. And in general being able to turn the screen inwards for protection (and to hide the disabled screen backlit glow, should that persist in the new model as it does on the current one).

On article Sony offers E PZ 18-110mm F4 G OSS for Super 35mm/APS-C (128 comments in total)

Wow that's Super Service. Just a week or few ago there were complaints about the glut of 50mm lenses.

On article Throwback Thursday: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F707 (136 comments in total)

That WAS quite a unique model. Had a lot of fun with it, and it propelled me to the next digital level (after that I decided to get serious-er, and picked up the then new 1D).

I'd wager the IR feature was dropped for the way it had people appearing absolutely EVIL!

It hasn't been all THAT long since the 707/717, but it's a nice blast from the past resurrection.

p.s. "Frickin' Laser Beams" LOL

Bob Tullis: Deceptive? I don't fathom how anyone could believe that rig moved by itself w/o a motor.

I guess the trick is not to jump to conclusions in the initial 10 seconds after clicking on anything. At least, initially I though there could be springs involved, but that didn't quite compute, so I didn't go to that place many went to, only to be disappointed and left feeling deceived. A few more seconds of attention made it all clear.

I don't do video much myself, but when I consider it I'd like utilize a motorized rail. This, while a bit pricey, to me is an interesting option for an introduction to that practice.

It calls for one having faith/trust that the startup team is as sincere as they are clever. Many are, but it only takes one. . . I'm just surprised it hasn't happened more often. Or has it?

I'm just glad to have seen the notice. I use a laptop for developing, but often when turning to it I'm in a location with a poor DSL line. Better I see it during workdays, so I can update w/o frustration. [shrug]

EricWN: Interesting and telling that they still make this stuff. Also, they thought now, months after the earthquake, would be the best time to inform the public? They couldn't figure this out earlier?

If voting for classy, I vote Mitch. [shrug]

This IMO exemplifies the less common meaning of the phrase:

"I prefer to get it right in the [field / camera]."

DPR was my first "forum" association after text based forum and chat services (gosh, I haven't thought of CIS and GEnie in years), and where the majority of my interaction has been all these years. So I guess I'm old and in the way, preferring the dark theme. Maybe the age of my eye have something to do with it. [shrug]

It's a fine implementation for either choice, if you ask me, and an improvement in general. Kudos.

In reply to:

Bob Tullis: Does "Landscape" here mean to include city-scapes, or does it imply rural / countryside locations are preferred?

Thanks for the clarification, Bill.

I have a strong suspicion that the lens cap alone costs more than my entire kit.

On photo Urban snowfall in the Show me the snow challenge (14 comments in total)

Thanks, all. That was a particularly good season for atmospheric nights. Not sure if the past two seasons weren't as opportune or I just wasn't as driven to make more of what had occurred. Whatever. . . Thanks again.

Jacques Cornell: Adobe, please enable command-G stacking of images on the filmstrip in Develop mode. We can do it in Library, why not Develop?

I miss being able to expand a stack after them being stacked, by double clicking the stack.

Papa - [chuckle] With you particularly in mind, I figured this would be the only way you'd get to look down like this w/o fear of swooning/falling. I knew it would be startling, but I figured you could handle it.

BTW, the first session is free. ;)

I had considered cloning out the tripod legs on the ledge and editing in my shoes, but THAT I thought would be too cruel.

I'm surprised, I'm so very impressed with so many other entries (present company not excluded).

Thanks.
