  • Commented on photo Grand Canyon Storm in the Random Items - Challenge 21 challenge

    I keep pausing and admiring this one since it keeps appearing in the dpreview frame. Excellent shot.

  • You know, we all say that there is little to no downside for video, but the Fuji XPro2 vs XT2 comparison, just released by DP Review, clearly states that merely upgrading from standard HD to 4K ...
  • That is, when my parents gave me my first camera. However, I'm not much into labels so I don't usually worry too much about any of this. Consider this - what makes someone a hiker?  Do they need an ...
  • I like the photo as presented and wouldn't change anything.  While I agree that on some level the foreground rock is a bit overly large (although it didn't even occur to me until after I saw other ...
  • Even though my photographic experience grew up very strongly in the digital world, I prefer direct physical controls and a minimalized menu experience.  Over the past decade I have used, and ...
  • Created discussion thread Smithsonian article on Right to Repair
    Interesting article from Smithsonian magazine on the fading ability of a consumer's ability to get electronics items repaired. http://www.smithsonianmag.com/innovation/fight-right-repair-180959764/
  • Lets say I shot 50 rolls of film back in the day at 36 shots per roll. That is 1,800 shots. Now lets assume that I could buy and process each roll of film dirt cheap at $12 a roll (and honestly ...
  • I mean I agree with you, but this might be the last place on earth where you are going to find significant agreement with the idea (well, I guess a DxO forum might be worse).
  • Does that not also apply to many photographers? That we are too busy photographing a wedding, an animal or a landscape, that we don't notice or experience anything beyond that? Feels like throwing ...
  • For a lot of these the obvious answer is the best answer particularly on a tight timeframe. For antelope take the photography tour as close to noon as possible. If you have extra time do the other ...
  • Replied in A few thoughts
    You are going to be going fairly late in the year. Many Yellowstone facilities will already be closed, and snow in all parts of the parks will be likely.  Do not try and enter Yellowstone through ...
  • Of course there is, but then there are two issues: 1 whether it gets in my way and detracts from use 2. whether I could acquire the product cheaper if I wasn't forced to buy the unwanted stuff. I ...
  • For many its not a question of photographic purity, its just a feature they never ever use. I've been shooting with DSLRs for almost a decade.  I think, but am not entirely sure, I tried shooting ...
  • Replied in Zenfolio [NT]
    no text
  • People describe the Fujis as more fun because they really enjoy the dials and interface of the camera. For some it brings back a simple straightforward they had at some semi-distant time in the ...
  • Are you not doing that with ACR?  I'm just saying.....:-D
  • Lets assume I am master scientist.  And I wish to know, and quantify, the sweetness and tastiness of apples, oranges, grapes, bananas and mangos. I go into my lab and figure out ways to measure ...
  • Nothing to see here
  • Replied in Opposite for me
    USPS, regardless of where I have lived, is late, inconsistent and frustrating.  UPS (FedEx is fairly rare for me) is consistently on time, little frustration and packages have always arrived intact. ...
