Instagram probably thinks its users are too dumb to be trusted with grid size option.

Add an electromechanical adapter with aperture lever and Ai tab, and I'll forgive if does not look like an FM.

RedFox88: This is built into Canon aps-c dslrs for years!

Buttons or hotshoes?

Does any of the mirror lens manufacturers pay attention to the fact that Rokkor 250/5.6 sells for over 1K and is highly sought after, while various f/8 lenses are abundant and cost an order of magnitude less?

Soo... it can handle LR for the next year?

sh10453: (Part 2)
As for the database, and as long as one is not doing, or planning on doing, something illegal, they should have no problem with this proposal.
However, if the intention is to be able to catch the bad guys, then the standard (and the database) will have to include measures to uniquely identify the drone (like it is done in airplanes).
That would facilitate catching John Doe if he sends his drone to capture naked images of his ex wife while sun-tanning in her backyard, or sending it to hover over a military base, for examples!!!

Registration could be done automatically at the time of purchase.
Any suggestion of licensing fees for private use is a bad idea, aside from a small, nominal, initial registration fee. Commercial use is a different matter.

Some rules for all to play by is far better than chaos.

So, I assume you are also in favor of a UN-run global DNA database?

I do not see how global registry would help create regulations. I can see though how it can be used to _enforce_ regulations, retroactively.

So dumbing down Picasa just once was not enough?

StevenN: This is disturbing. I often have carried my tripod with legs extended but together in public places. Do I now have to worry about being shot?

@cosinaphile This would look much better in all caps.

Majauskasson: I would assume that the people renting cameras are not even half-serious amateurs or they would have their own camera equipment. Most people who rent things like cars have no clue how to operate the equipment properly and are not serious about whatever craft they are trying practice in whatever retarded fashion that strikes them as correct.

You are absolutely correct. Every half-serious amateur can easily afford a 600 L.

rrccad: the current deadly force laws for cops in the states really needs some re-work.

no other country has this problem as bad as the americans.

@cosinaphile Just stop, please. You can not prove any of the bs you are spouting.

You always have had to - you are easily tagged as an owner of expensive gear.

jorepuusa: Thought I´d visit USA next winter and take some pictures. No way - I`ll stay here cause I have a big nose and a cop could think it is a weapon. Happily I´m from Finland where police does not think a tripod is a bazooka.

Perhaps it is because despite being heavily armed Finns don't make it a habit to shoot at the police?

sh10453: In my experience, I have found the MicroSD cards to be very unreliable.
I have used various brands, including Samsung 64GB, SanDisk 128GB, ..., etc.
None of them lived up even close enough to the designated capacity.
In fact the SanDisk 128GB U1 stopped taking anything after 10GB of data.
The Samsung 64GB Class 10 is as bad or even worse.

I have given up on MicroSD cards beyond 8GB.

I would think that the heat would cook this tiny card before it completes loading the 400GB.

Yep, gotta be super careful these days, thanks to Amazon the fakes are running rampant.

Henrikw: I literally just opened the box with my Sigma 85mm Art 1.4. It looks and feels great, and if I'm lucky it will be pin sharp without much adjustment (the Canon looks a bit mundane).
But I always craved a big aperture 85 with image stabilization. And here it is....guess my Sigma is going back before it has a chance to shine. Sorry Sigma....

Why did you order Sigma? It's been known for weeks that Canon is coming.

In reply to:

Edgar_in_Indy: Wait, I'm confused. I've been told many times by Canon-faithful that stabilization is not needed for larger-aperture lenses such as 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm 1.4 lenses. If you needed stabilization for those lenses, then you were obviously not doing it right.

That is one of the main reasons that the lack of IBIS on Canon bodies was supposedly no big deal.

You are about 5 years too late to be getting confused. But hey...

krassphoto: Let's not forget that Zenit cameras, like everything else, were products of Soviet socialist planned economy. So the cameras made by the end of month/quarter/year were the ones to avoid, while cameras made in the beginning were of good quality and served their owners for decades. That's why we have such polarized reviews.

Except that Czechs and Slovaks have liberated themselves and created stable democratic societies with working market economies while Russia has replaced totalitarian gerontocracy with authoritarian plutocracy.

Looks like a well-oiled machine.
