Nobody steals my images. ...that makes me very sad!

aris14: Hey DPR, don't you think guys that you have, at least, to offer a coffee to those readers (or should I say beta testers?) who comment those Kickstarter's ideas thus preventing more ignorant or silly people to contribute some $ to nonsense..?

aris14, is English your second language?

With the extreme capacity and low cost of memory cards today, I rarely need to change them. This idea might've found buyers about 15 years ago, but I don't know if Kickstarter was around back then. I wouldn't waste my time or money on this one. I don't think they even needed to mention Kickstarter, we would know it anyhow!

It's almost as ugly as an original trapezoid shaped Ihagee Exakta Camera! ...They were good for sports, we use to have a contest called "Throw your Exakta the Farthest".

On article Throwback Thursday: the Nikon D700 (115 comments in total)

Hey, I still use my D700 (as a Back up to my D810, but I still depend on it!). It's built like a Tank, and it has an actual Nikon Sensor. It doesn't shoot video, but the still images and High ISO are quite amazing. It may be 10 years old since they came out, but stores still had stock into 2011, and 2012. I don't think it qualifies for "Throwback Thursday". Nikon still sells them in their Refurbished Store, and they still accept them for repairs (although they rarely need repairs!)

This camera would look nice on a mantle or shelf. Definitely a conversation piece.

PHOTOJOE55: So what is the dpr rating?

@Class A; is Gold the highest award?
@Underexposed; What does that mean? The last one we need to buy?
I save the old mags, and so many cameras were called "the best we could ask for" and similar terms. It's like they're drawing a new line in the sand. I read some where, that Canon has a patent for a 100MP sensor. I hope my MBP has some room for expansion. It's a 2016 and it's really just for the D810. Thanks, ... JP

PHOTOJOE55: He's a Photographer now? I thought he was a Chicago Cop. dpr will make a story out of just about anything now, if fact this is the second in 3 weeks for this guy. Maybe B&H should start a blog of their own too!

His wife is very photogenic, and that's where most of his followers come from, on youtube, Facebook, instagram etc. Guys see a sexy looking woman, and they'll be asking for another video every time. She also has a very convincing "Nerd" look, maybe she could've been an actress, she seems to have talent and looks!

I saw him start about 2 years ago, on youtube. At that time his picture looked like a security guards, but he said that he was on the Chicago police force. Maybe you should teach him how one should hold a camera while taking pictures!

Those are some small, but firm rivets (in the bridge).

On article Yashica is teasing a comeback to the camera market (299 comments in total)
In reply to:

Reactive: I must congratulate Yashica for selling me a load of junk when I was 13 years old. It was called the Yashica Partner, and was the most shoddily built piece of rubbish you can ever imagine. Almost from day one it ruined every single shot with some degree of light leakage, then the winder mechanism started slipping so I'd get massive yellow/red patches over half/double exposures. I was so disappointed I saved up and bought an Olympus OM10 SLR, which got me really interested in photography. Thanks Yashica.

I had the "Electro 35 GSN" for a short while. For some reason, I got the Auxiliary lenses, case and flash too, and that's how I sold it about a moth later. If I had saved it all of these years, I might've gotten my money back, but that "Tinny Hollow feel" bugged me so much that I wanted to take it apart. I don't think there was much of anything inside, so I was glad that someone else wanted it!

If they raised the cost of the subscription, I wouldn't have thought twice about paying an increase. It was one of the lowest cost subscriptions that I get, and easily one of the best values. It's sad to see them go, and their crew unemployed!

A hood and a hat? And yet it's the jacket that ruins this image!

falconeyes: I wonder how this can be patented at all?
My Velbon VS3 from the 80s had this already, and better actually.
According to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqY0iOfSkjo it was patented back in 1958!!

Really nice video, thanks!

I get the impression that this lens was nothing to brag about, with it's biggest complaints; lack of VR, and it's Heavy weight. But the price hasn't yet dropped?
Anyone here try it, and care to comment? Thanks. ... Joe

On article Polaroid Snap instant digital camera prints 2x3" photos (104 comments in total)

I think this camera is targeted for kids, just look at the color choices!

Link | Posted on Sep 19, 2015 at 08:25 UTC as 4th comment

When you put the camera down on a flat surface, I think it will fall forward onto it's lens. Remember the Bogen/Manfrotto 6 sided chunk of metal, with their big heavy tripod screw and it's collar? Very strong, but not very convenient for a QR Plate. Still, there's always a selection of them selling on the used market. I'm a bit surprised at this company, they've designed some real nice gear… until now!
