mandophoto: A bunch of sour guys posting here. They're actually envious of a 4 year old getting a little attention. I hope these posts are by trolls and not regular visitors. Sheez.

Impressed or not, I know better than to debase the efforts of a child.

On article Airnef brings desktop Wi-Fi transfer to Nikon users (36 comments in total)

Well done. Works great with my iMac and a D750. I need to set up the D750 to connect to a secure Time Machine (router/backup) but otherwise no problems. Thank you.

Excellent article, not only on sports photography but also photography in general. Thank you.

On article Heavy lifting: Leica S (Type 007) sample gallery (197 comments in total)

I believe it is the "S" lenses that justifies this camera.

Interesting how big and heavy these new fast, quality lenses are getting. Even Sony/ZEISS E mount large aperture lenses are big. Only Leica seems to build - albeit expensive - reasonable sized f1.4 lenses, at least for the M cameras. I guess digital quality demands are pushing these specifications.

On article Nikon D750 Review (1989 comments in total)
In reply to:

PaulMW: I have upgraded from a D7000 to the D750 and I am disappointed with my D750 picture quality. The D7000 has noticeably sharper detail and more vibrant colours. I have checked similar scenes and same lenses on both cameras, in fact I have spent quite a lot of money on high end lenses yet the D7000 is better. The D750 is a recent model so it does not have the flare problem of the early units.
When next I am in civilisation I will take it to Nikon for a check-up, I hope that I have not bought a lemon. Does anyone else have a similar concern?

@PaulMW: I recently purchased a D750 and have noticed what I believe is mirror slap vibration at shutter speeds below 1/125. So I switched the release-mode dial from S (single frame) to Q (quiet shutter release) and have since noticed sharper pictures.

It is a parody. The "product" presentation photographs are hilarious. We need more of this kind of irreverence.

Aperture 3 was problematic for a while after it was released, but unlike some, for me now and running Yosemite 10.10.3, Aperture is actually running better than it ever has. I just imported some raw files and have absolutely no problems. In addition, Photos, iPhoto and Lightroom all work flawlessly. Yes, it is ironic that Aperture (3.6) is now working the way it should have been a few years ago, still, Aperture's demise is, well, not too important. :-)

@CallMeAlan: Sure you do. When even a non-Aperture user such as yourself can get all hand-wringing melodramatic at Apple, well, there’s your entertainment! :-)

Frank C.: That dumbed down 1/4000 and 1/200 x-sync is hard to swallow nonetheless

Well then,....don't buy it. We wouldn't want you to choke.

En Trance: Also, if I rest my camera on a good tripod at the beach, 1/4000 does not cut it due to the wind alone. (Especially with a tele lens) After that, I begin to think of exposure. Why is Nikon limiting their shutter speed so severely?

See below.

In reply to:

En Trance: I am looking a the photo of the Black Girl at the Sea Wall. The colors seem average, not breathtaking, and the ear, ear rings, and blowing hair are way out of focus. Is it just me? Is it Photographic Technique? I often miss it on AF, but is this what the camera did? I do not know much about Nikon, so excuse me for that.

Yep, it's you.

lacix: ...Guys will whistle after you!

Hey guys. Dudes. You did notice the distaff name of the author, no? Yes, her bag is designed as a purse, however the apparent craftsmanship made me curious enough to view the website. Nicely designed camera bags that don't advertise loudly the probability of expensive equipment within. Check it out if you're not too intimidated by the author's bag choice.

Presently, film stuff is but a fraction of the waste that goes into the environment. Consider the billions of plastic and electronic devices that are tossed yearly. Yeah, all this stuff should be recycled but.... it isn't. Film now is the least of our environmental concerns.

It's good and cool to keep film going (for a few more years anyway.)

In reply to:

b craw: Well executed, thus charming vignettes of domesticity. Some are perhaps overly-familiar motifs - pensive child through window, something out of natural context (dog) in a photo bag, etc. - but I doubt that these endeavor to be cutting edge in terms of concept or visual outcome. They are nice, and I suspect, compelling to a large portion of the viewers here.

These photographs are certainly not in the same league of Sally Mann's work. But her work transcended familial photography to become serious art. As you say, these don't endeavor to be cutting edge and yes some are indeed clichés, yet the kind of imaginative fun shown is unfortunately not common with most folks using cameras.

Imagination as a tool. Well.

Simple tips for beginners, nothing wrong there. It's also a commercial for some Canon stuff, nothing wrong there either.

And how many times have I read in DPR forums that an eraser can be used to clean lens contacts? Apparently the guys posting that suggestion are spreading misinformation, albeit innocently. Now I know to be more careful with lens contacts. Great!

On article Portfolio: Photography student Luke Evans (157 comments in total)
In reply to:

InTheMist: Such poison, jealous spiteful words.

The article makes it really clear that Luke's "work has garnered a lot of attention in the past couple of years." I'm sorry that yours hasn't. Nor has mine.

Let young Luke enjoy his 15 minutes of fame.

Luke, if the critics work is better than yours, take it to heart! If not, disregard it and drive on. Have thick skin. Be prepared to promote yourself, second only advancing your skill in your chosen art form.

@bigdaddave:
"...properly talented students.." According to whom? You?! Well then it's time you started your own photo blog to show the world whats what. Do let us know when that happens.
