On article Nico360 to be 'world's smallest' 360-degree camera (24 comments in total)
In reply to:

webber15: I don't know what's more depressing nowadays...360 cams that no-one appears to buy or video infiltration of "photography" websites...

I might get used to it oneday...

Exactly. 360 is a specialty camera and certainly not for everyone. How many people would look at the google street view and call it impressive? This hype will soon fade I am sorry.

vFunct: Broncolors are the best lights in the entire industry.

Top of the food chain.

Profoto seems to dominate the market still

In reply to:

christiangrunercom: Now all they have to do is to make this in 70-80 cm and available for all Profoto heads

I guess it should be able to work with other lights without modelling light on?

On article Canon EOS 5DS real-world sample gallery (217 comments in total)
In reply to:

naththo: I am not sure but the sample only few of them looks soft, not as good as 5DsR for some reason maybe they set AA filter too strong?

It's mainly due to the out dated 135L. It simply can't cope with the 50MP. So when we look at it at 100% they look soft.

Nothing new with this backpack. F-stop modular design is still by far the best. Mindshift bags have their own innovation as well.

I do find the walking sticks more attractive as I have always been wanting a multi-purpose tracking pole for a long time.

eyeport: Let me summarize...

This is one of the most popular subjects shown on DPR. I wonder what's so special about this ghost town house? Sand in the house with a bit of sunlight shining through...we've probably seen similar angle and similar HDR technique about a thousand times that it feels like vacation photos to me now.

One other frequent top on DPR is how to photograph and process iceberg in iceland!

Would like to see more unique subjects and fresh perspectives.

@Barney, thanks for pointing out. As a frequent reader of DPR it gave me the impression that I've seen such topic multiple times (in fact it could be just that one other time). That said, this is truly a popular if not most photographed house I have seen.

I look forward to seeing more featured articles with creative subjects and BTS.

@ShelNf, for me there are a lot of ways you could achieve HDR effects - pulling shadow details, take multiple exposures, brushing, layer and masking...basically anything without the use of fill light but enhance dynamic range digitally. Nowadays many of us all like to pull shadows here or there to increase the dynamic range, it's just whether you like to do it more or less. The examples shown about admittedly has quite a natural looks however its still photoshoped. I'd be far more interested to see how a photographer has gone out his way to capture a scene in camera at the first place.

On article Canon EOS 7D Mark II: Real-world samples (beta) (268 comments in total)

i actually am quite happy with the IQ based on these sample photos. my 1dx might do a bit better but given the 1.6x crop factor, 7D2 is a killer camera for sports and wildlife.

On article Award-winning wildlife photos capture candid moments (46 comments in total)

Some of the shots are amazing. The spider and bird shot really made me pause, wondering what would the fate of the trapped bird be over the next minute.

As for the owl shot, I always feel photographer has used some alluring techniques. :P

On article Canon updates firmware for EOS-1D X and EOS-1D C (33 comments in total)

Canon please fix my 1Dx, it's been sitting with you guys for a month and you are telling me it's still waiting for parts. How disappointing! And the fact that a top of the line camera just died for no reason is just as shocking.

Ganondorf: Is image stabilization even relevant on these lenses, I mean who's gonna shoot this handheld?

But even with tripod IS is still very useful on such long lens.

How exciting! Would be wonderful if this was for the whole world. ^^

In reply to:

Petka: a) Camera is brand new, and now already Canon has to fix problems. How can they let unfinished products get to the market? Canon is on the decline, seriously!

b) Great service, Canon! even the small details are immediately fixed and new products accommodated in firmware, pronto! I hope other companies were as good! Future looks great!

(just trying to cover all angles and save much unnecessary postings...)

Such a funny comment Petka! Covering all angles.. hahaha
