Pritzl: It's sad to see people over and under-react to COVID-19. Yes it's serious and we need to take precautions. But no, it is not the end of the world. Thanks DPR for staying sane in the midst of all this.

That's my point. Take it seriously but don't panic. The latter helps no one.

Snow...

That, plus we had a very late snow this year. We only just got our first 6 inches this past Saturday. I guess they're paying the snow back for the no-show. Although as a reluctant yet compulsive driveway shoveller, I'm not sure why people yearn for that cr@p anyway? Let it fall in the mountains where you can enjoy it away from where it can create traffic havoc.

On article Hands-on with the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III (321 comments in total)

I suspect that this camera has touchline pro photographers salivating. Particularly over the connectivity features, extended battery life & faster shooting/bigger buffer. I may be wrong though as I am not a pro myself.

The obvious question is: why not just create a view option to display the same film info (with appropriate black borders) on a regular screen that articulates properly? You still get the nostalgia but save money on the dual screens and avoid the "quirky" label.

"... half a stop more expensive...", nice one! 👍

Kashim: This is what I'm hearing: "Our hardware was more capable than we initially let on. We purposely left out certain features, so that we can later sell those features for an added cost."

Sound about right?

Got on here to say precisely that but you beat me to it. Short-sighted greed overriding common sense here - the cost has already been incurred, $10 a pop is hardly worth the damage to the brand's image. On the flip side, offering it as a free firmware update buys you some serious good-will and brand loyalty from your customers.

"Phenomenon" sounds better than "bug" I guess.

Forget the lens, that crepe looks yummy!

Are embedded systems still running on so little memory that these ridiculous hacks are required? *smh*

Pritzl: I wonder if it's the judgement or our views of it that are political? Guess it's to be expected when we can't even agree on facts.

Or worse, make up ones that do.

The Fat Fish: $4,595 for an enormous 35mm F/2? Why so expensive?

Shrapne-stopping power? :)

Best quote from the article: "...we can show which camera is better, but can’t tell you whether you, personally, need that improvement..."

Don't you know that we're all Ansel Adams, Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson all rolled into one? All we need for our talent to shine through is just a few more decibels improvement of signal to noise ratio and an eyelash's worth of DoF.

Your loss.

Impressive. Never been a phone-tech guy but this one has me intrigued. Of course my budget would mean I'll have to wait quite a while before this sort of thing becomes affordable.

Great Bustard: So not only is the Earth a flat disk, but it's smaller than the Moon? : )

Thanks for the laughs Great Bustard and Karrolly. Flat-eartherism is usually a very depressing topic for me.

You know who says "size doesn't matter" don't you?
