  • I know. That's just not what I want to see. Is the concept of a simple pie chart really lost on people? Of current FB users, break it down into groups so we can clearly see the percentages.
  • I came back. I pointed out that the chart says it's usage, but he now says it's about the percentage of satisfied customers...for some reason...has nothing to do with the breakdown of usage. Also, ...
  • Are satisfied? Are happy? Where are you getting that from? The chart says usage, not percentage of happy customers.
  • Nearly died laughing when I looked at this. These numbers are absurd. For example, In the breakdown by age, the total is 323 percent. You claim that 79% of 18-29 year olds use FB, but if it's 79 ...
  • 1) There are lots of videos on IG. 2) Young people aren't on Facebook much any more. It's for grandma and grandma (and maybe mom and dad.) It's definitely for the older crowd now.
  • Young people don't care about stills. They want video.
  • I notice that these shots are from f5.6 to f9. I also use the D500/D7200 for macro, and I usually operate between f11 and f16 regardless of which macro lens I use. (Diffraction is pretty minimal ...
  • Interesting. I sometimes forget that people photograph still objects in controlled settings with macro lenses, and not only bugs that are moving around on plants outside. For those subjects and ...
  • Nikon itself has ignored DX users wanting fast wide primes for a while. Thom Hogan has been bitching about this issue for several years. My solution when I only had a DX body was to use the ...
  • That's what I've heard for years, and while I'm sure some people get good results following that advice, I just don't find it to be necessary for bug photography. I use a monopod with a tilt head ...
  • Your mistake there was involving other humans in your photography. If I had to wait for people, or catch up to people, I wouldn't be in the hobby.
  • You're implying that fast lenses are only bought because they can create shallow DOF. Getting better results in low-light is another, different advantage that they also offer, and for some people ...
  • That is quite wide. Over the years, I've found that while it certainly has its place, especially in tight indoor places, wider isn't always better...it can make composition increasingly difficult ...
  • I got mine for $250 on ebay and have been very pleased with its output on both the D850 and D7200. AF is not super fast like it is on some of the newer primes, but perfectly adequate to me. It's a ...
  • Replied in No Man's Land
    It's the definition of 'No Man's Land' for me. Too close to either 24mm or 45mm without being as good at either for what I use them for.
  • No need to be rude. I don't see anywhere in the posts prior to this that you indicated that you used auto-stacking on the D850 with the Tamron and Sigma, hence my post. Stacking = manual. ...
  • You can manually focus stack with pretty much any camera and lens. What they're talking about is the new feature that came out in the D850 where the camera automatically does the whole process for ...
  • Replied in Not likely.
    1) Only idiots shoot with their phones vertically. 2) TVs have been 16:9 for almost 20 years, which is the shape of most phones and tablets. 3) Vertical viewing will never be a thing, because our ...
  • 1) Was it in his post? No? That's one reason why. Where was it? In his blog. Really? You expect me to pour over someone's blog that I've never heard of looking for posts that prove what, exactly? 2 ...
