  • Absolutely stunning and captivating. I love everything about this portrait. I specifically like that you did not soften the skin's appearance. The visible skin texture ads to the authenticity that ...
  • In case it is actually a buffer issue, I cannot imagine that processing-intensive features have any impact. I suggest to provide very specific information about your shooting rate: average ...
  • My observation is explicit, no suggestions between the lines. Another detail: the Amazon logo featured on the video cover.
    My thinking is really a simple one: these video tutorials are a powerful...

  • Really? Everybody stays only with the brand/body that someone already owns? Not really.
    And do all the people switching to or adding MFT, mirrorless, Fuji gear from/to their already existing...

  • These "product overview" and "getting started" guides located at such a prominent site as DPR will provide effective sales support to cameras covered over cameras not covered. Any thoughts on this?

  • dwill23 - your comment is well apreciated and points at an important detail: I haven't read all the DPR articles relating to sports shooting - but here at DPR I get the impression that catching the...

  • Very nice. Giving the tractor (or any vehicle with lights on) a more prominent role in the picture actually would have turned it into something more special among the astrotracer images. Reminds ...
  • Replied in Prom!
    So you basically say that candid people photography does not exist?
  • I like the image's mood and think most things were done right. Regarding the concept: assuming the scene is staged, to me the way the lady is dressed up and the scene do not add up. The scene is a ...
  • Manzur, When I look at your portraiture work I see a celebration of female beauty. And you are very very good with this. Kudos.
  • You nailed it. These prime lenses seem for their combination of quality and size to be unique - and to me that combination matters. Even looking at MFT land I don't see anything significantly smaller.
  • You guys are proving every point I am making: you feel offended, you are offensive and you are angry - and you are headed to another verbal brawl, spiraling down that cycle of mutual attack.
    Mind...

  • Some commenters here complain that a lot of comments have been deleted.

    If people were willing to present criticism in a respectful manner supported by somewhat reasonable argumentation there was...

  • One day, maybe, we will wake up and recognize: it is not the other ethnicity, not the other gender, not the opposite party, not the other one that causes the issues in our world. One day, maybe, we...

  • Congrats to the photographer cand1d. According to his gear list the winning photo should have been shot with a K5. Some stunning images that made it to the top 25. Enjoyed seeing all of them.
  • Replied in Lens Upgrade
    Out of curiosity: what do you find in the K5 that you do not find in your two Canon bodies? Looking at the lenses you use according to you gear list I second the suggestion to try the DA 70 with ...
  • I assume the sports shots were done in AF-C and burst mode? For an objective evaluation of this / any camera's AF-C capabilities it would be nice to see all pictures coming from a burst, not only...

  • Your personal point of view ist perfectly clear and valid. No need that someone feels discounted, no need to start a war over "what camera ist best in Pentax land".
  • Thanks for your feedback. It is as you say: the 100mm macro has the right optical quality but is big and heavy. I had the FA 100 which is a massive piece of glas (600gr!). Also the AF action was ...
  • Same here, I have the K5ii. I had to upgrade from a K5 unit who's AF was a desaster. For my subject, candid people portraiture under available light, it is almost perfect. Compact, unobtrusive, ...
