  • Several thoughts. There is no reason you can't have a front bumper camera. Several people have suggested you need an eye test.  I disagree.  Your problem sounds more like a lack of spatial ...
  • Gear and technical merits of a photo. You are criticizing technical merits, which often (usually?) have little to nothing to do with gear. Personally I like the photo. Edit.  I actually don't see ...
  • Inconsequential only if you are equalizing for DOF or you are carrying long lenses. Otherwise, for me, half the weight for mirrorless. Since I am usually hiking, and don't care much about DOF, ....
  • No, two different couples.  The couple who died look like they have Indian, or perhaps Pakistani, names. The couple caught in the viral engagement photo appear to be Vietnamese.
  • You misunderstand.  I don't care at all about the relationship between Adobe and Fuji.  I think that the RAW processing "complications" are enormously overblown, and I moved away from Adobe when ...
  • It doesn't harm anyone. That doesn't make it realistic. Adobe is a software company. The company that makes Sea of Thieves - or any of the other XBox only games on this list ...
  • There are still lots of programs that only work on Windows, or Mac OS, and not the other.  Similarly there are lots of apps that work on IOS, and not Android.  Some game are only on Playstation, ...
  • Setting: A random burger king. Him:  You wanna get married? Her.  Smiling.. sure! That would be an example of a first proposal - not a particularly special one, and probably usually impromptu or ...
  • For 99.9% of human beings full frame has no tangible benefit.  For 99% of semi-serious photographers full frame will benefit them about 2% of the time. The rest of the time it is just marketing ...
  • I was invited once to show at a Chelsea art gallery about 8 years ago - it would have been landscapes.  It was a couple thousand up front in gallery fees for me which I likely would have recouped ...
  • Outdoor Research Interstellar Rain jacket So I recently bought a new rain jacket. The new and apparently highly regarded Outdoor Research Interstellar. One of the selling points for many people, ...
  • Replied in it is
    Peeing outside is apparently illegal in 49 states. Going to be rough for hikers from now on. Criminals. All those states that have legalized weed? Criminals. How do you arrest a US State?  Guess we ...
  • Again, 98% of all Americans don't do it. This isn't a moral issue in the slightest as many in this thread make it out to be - this is a completely ignored set of laws. I would further be willing ...
  • Roughly 98% of all Americans don't pay taxes for online purchases. The study I just looked at was from 2009, but I see little reason to think the numbers have changed. Heck, I just Googled some ...
  • Replied in 99%+
    I don't know how many I have - tens of thousands at least. 200-300,00 RAW files wouldn't surprise me.  Occasionally I will delete obvious losers in the field (as in I accidentally took a picture ...
  • Yes and no.  Some people are talking about non-dial custom settings. What you just described isn't an override but a neutral setting.  What I meant was the ISO dial set to 200 but a custom setting ...
  • I've heard this complaint over the years but I have no idea how it would be even possible for a custom setting to override aperture dials and ISO dials.  Among other things. If a custom setting ...
  • For me #4 is the clear keeper of the group.
  • You have to be comfortable using it and you have to want to use it. IMHO there isn't enough technical difference between the two to overcome that basic ergonomic and use driver. Pick that camera.
  • For me 1. ISO settings (I am old, and with film your first decision was what speed film you put in the camera) 2. What aperture and shutter speed are and how they affect images. My first SLR, a ...
