Nice work!

Flouride will make the lens have VR, IS and OSS qualities.

Don't tell anybody...

This was the same technique Leonard McCoy used on Pavel Chekov aboard the nuclear aircraft carrier USS Enterprise to heal Chekov's concussion: By using a simple Motorola Startac flip phone.

It would be a great added perspective if these images, for the purpose of showing scale, could have a superimposed image or wire frame object of certain references such as a motor vehicle, a tennis court rectangle, or an athletic track oval to show the viewers the breathtaking size and awesome grand scale of the scene being shown. As it is, it looks like any other formation, until a scale comparison is brought in. Then awesomeness comes forth.

Clearly, the overall winner here is the "Trek™ Madone Race Shop Limited H1 2017 " pretty much hands down...

Oopps! Wrong forum...

This is great for REAL LIFE aerodynamic experiments on wing foils, rotor blade sections, and motor vehicle streamlined designs!

CAD simulations are just that: simulations on screen. It would be more revealing and exciting to see the real eddy and turbulence on actual solid models. Saves the budget from building huge wind tunnels and hydro dynamic enabled fluid tanks.

In reply to:

DotCom Editor: "When I started shooting sports for college publications..."

And when I started shooting sports it was on a twin-lens reflex 6x6-cm camera with 120 roll film. There was no such thing as "frames per second." And no autofocus. And no through-the-lens metering. And no histogram. And no instant image review. And no tethering. And no blinkies. Today's "photographers," who are really just shutter-button-pushers would have absolutely no clue what to do if all those features were taken away.

...back in the days of the TLR, the SLAM DUNK was not even in the vocabulary.

[except for Wilt and Lew]...

The "X" seems to be a blessing to Fujifilm...

...well actually, to a lot of brand names too!

If it's a good thing, why not?

They are both good.

Should be showing more of Jim's action poses...

The contraption and photographer's attitude and chutzpa are more interesting...

Great shots, nevertheless!

There is only ONE reason why VR may not be ready to succeed: THE MARKET.

It isn't biting.

Yet.

Click on the Canon EF-S 35mm Lens Image on the bottom to get to the GALLERY. [The "Gear In This Story" Box... NOT the AMAZON link...]

Nice shots with the ring light. Are there any options to tweak how the ring light goes on and off?

I wonder how will it affect the battery life.

On article Roadtrip Review Redux: The Fujifilm X100F (173 comments in total)

I prefer using zooms for road trips because of the landscape and telephoto opportunities.

The X100 is great for urban street photography and close quarter subjects.

Even my Jurassic X10 is great for urban everyday use.

But, that's just my preference. We all have our unique and specific inclinations.

On article How do you know you need a new camera? (409 comments in total)

If you can afford it, keep the two top brands: Canon and Nikon on your side.

If you can further afford it, keep a third one in Sony.

These 3 brands have their strengths and weaknesses. Only a lot of mileage using them will reveal that to you, uniquely and personally.

Only change these cameras if it conks out, because you can't find one that's exactly like it as brand new, by the time it goes kaput.

Better sell the software to the Main players.

Unless given the coding passports or be great hacks such as Magic Green Lanterns, mainstream camera makers will just make their own thingamajig and plop it on the Menu Dial...

These new annual schedule is an indication of the fast times we are in (not only in Ridgemont High) where newfangled contraptions are churned out by imaging companies to cater to the insatiable appetite of the modern spoiled consumer in the form of Jabba The Hutt®.
