Dejan80501: How about a 20% refund to all who purchased DJI products up to and through 2018, and exile those involved to North Korean labor camps.

I guess that 20% is funding the new Chinese rail gun technology, and the new aircraft carrier recently added ti their fleet.

Nikon D5 owners, it does not support the D5.

SmilerGrogan: Please do your part to keep Ken Rockwell-isms out of DPR. If you're going to use the term "coma" please also use the right term for sunstars.

It is my understanding that the correct term is "diffraction spikes."

On article The Wild Southwest: Jory Vander Galien's landscapes (61 comments in total)

Off topic, but addressing an issue here: why soo many overly critical posters? These posts have ABSOLUTELY ZERO value to the above feature on dpreview. There rings the sound of jealousy because YOU may not been published or received attention as Jory Vander Galien. All work has value, and something can be taken away from the table. In JVG's set, some I like, some I don't because of my own personal style and taste or could be done better...but, there may be a story behind each set. The only tasteless portion of this feature are the valueless comments posted a pro, and express critique not criticism.

expressivecanvas: Just because I have posted photos on Facebook for my family and friends to SEE, does NOT mean I am okay with them printing them, having them printed or put on a tacky mug. Years ago I had gone to a family member's home and found photos of mine hanging on their walls.. pixelated, web-sized photos, printed as 8x10s.. They made my photos look crappy for all visitors to see. I NEVER want this to happen to my art... it is illegal... it is stealing... and, if they had simply asked me for a copy of a photo, I would have gladly had my work printed professionally and sent it to them. The simple fact is they stole my art and their printing job made my work look miserable. This app is theft and I can't help but wonder about the quality. That being said, personally, I feel the publishers of this app want nothing to do with photos, but instead want your Facebook personal info to sell, use, exploit... across international borders... This is clearly written in their "Terms and Conditions".

You have not been watermarking your photos???! Watermark everything, but is a respectful manner and post photos 800 long

On article Instagram dos and don’ts (8 comments in total)

Dudes, what this article is trying to get at it Instagram is "different" than typical photography. The article is simply trying to get the photo taker to understand how to make a better image using your phone. Also, there is no comparison to capturing images with a dslr. Yeah, the slow shutterspeed is likely achievable using an app or whatever, but you will not get the same DOF, ISO, exposure control, etc....

I am not sure if I can agree with the math on the CL reply...your equipment costs are paid for by other clients through the year. However, how much is a wedding image to you when it is probably one, if not, the most important day in your life? a million bucks....until you get the divorce, then zero.

A good wedding photographer is worth more than $3K.

nikonmojo: Awesome shot! Is that (f22) the actual aperture for this shot?

Yes, f/22. I usually shoot manual & try to keep my shutterspeed between 1/80 to 1/125 sec for these kind of shots. If shooting 1/80, you really have to nail the focal point & pan to get it right.
