Canon is the true champion of extending features across its vast range of Gulag and Tundra models.

If you ever like certain cool features from among Canon's lineup, you have to buy at least THREE cameras...

On article Video: Removing a stuck lens filter... with a band saw (79 comments in total)

The reason there is jagged tooth on the rim of filters is to press this rim face down on the surface of a kitchen chopping board and gently twist the barrel like they did on this video, to free the stuck thread.

On article Analog gems: 10 excellent, affordable film cameras (818 comments in total)

I still use The Olympus µ[mju:]-II or Stylus Epic instead of Holga.

The lens of the Olympus is like no other Coke Bottle Bottom... slightly better, just very slightly... without the sugar and caffeine.

But it's film, so... Itsa ol rayt! [Mario Bros].

There must be a better way to develop these rolls... Please Mr. Scientist, come up with an eco-friendly solution!

On article 2017 iPhone Photography Award Winners Announced (156 comments in total)

The real winners of the iPhone Photography awards is: YOU, the user.

Millions of images of humanity shared all over the World taken from a slab of glass and metal.

These images are just fine examples chosen by a panel.

We are such a blasé and spoiled culture.

Take that iPhone and run with it!

Somewhere across the globe... in a land where fake goods are made... factories are now making Nikon dog chew toys because of this news item...

It is predicted to replace their currently best selling dog chew toys: The rubber chicken and the rubber bone.

NIKON: I am YUM.

I hope they come out with a model that makes my iPhone into a Large Format Graflex camera complete with accordion bellows and free black vestal virgin head covers.

I would surely consider purchasing that... if it comes complete with the original 15 pound timber legged tripods and Big Bertha gun powders for the flash gun.

The word "short" should be replaced by: "APART".

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.

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?
