  • I have a Nikon 600/4 manual focus that I have used with an adaptor on a m43 body.  I have a Fuji adaptor too (which is currently hiding from me) to also use it on my Fuji bodies. I use a Jobu ...
  • Replied in Neither
    You chose to retranslate my post into what you thought it meant, rather than as a response to the OP.  Let me clarify: 1. Essentially all digital cameras have no collectors item value. 2. I have ...
  • Replied in Neither
    Digital cameras aren't film cameras, and digital cameras depreciate just as all consumer electronic items depreciate - namely very fast. Now in 30 years could one or the other color be viewed as an ...
  • Replied in I am confused
    So, being confused about the original post, I tried to figure out what he meant.  As nearly as I can figure, the camera in  Skull Island that is too hipsterish is a Leica KE7A. Not that I would ...
  • An assortment of print sizes, mostly 11x17, 13x19 or bigger. My office is very popular with people who don't want to do work. Some of the prints are on gatorboard or other foam core, but sometimes ...
  • Replied in I am confused
    15 years ago I counted ounces when I hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and other places.  One memorable object of my ounce counting?  The sleeping bag.  Another? The pack itself. People count ...
  • Replied in Broken logic
    You are stating from the equivalence zealot viewpoint.  I have no idea if you are a zealot or have simply listened to them too much, but from my standpoint its really simple. I chose Fuji cameras ...
  • Maybe because I care more about the ergonomics and other things rather than slim DOF.
  • We don't always need to see the whole waterfall.
  • Are you sure that its actually the bag she hates and not you focusing on photography instead of her/friends/family?
  • I like it better un-cropped.  The water of the lake is telling its own story, and having more lake emphasizes that story more.  Cropped you lose the impact of the water and the specialness of it.  ...
  • All of my photos have flaws, technical or otherwise.  Is there even such a thing as a perfect photo? A glorious morning with fall foliage starting to explode.  Do I care that I handheld it, pushed ...
  • The third is probably more accurate than the original (I'm assuming you recovered the sky and didn't just replace it), and also probably much more like what people actually saw. Had you not shown ...
  • I'm late to the party apparently, and missed the prior conversations.  I think you are doing very well.  For me the weakest of the four shots is the last, but that doesn't make it a bad shot. I ...
  • The Subway might be more doable in March than the Narrows.  With the Narrows you have no choice but to be in the water.  With the Subway the easiest route is often in the water, but its not the ...
  • Created discussion thread Big Bend National Park
    Visited Big Bend last October - my first visit. When processing I noticed that things converted to B/W much better than normal. So before I send some off to print, I was curious which other people ...
  • I use Google a mind numbingly large amount of times every day. Its a useful tool, but does not always substitute for informed commentary. I anointed me. As I stated I've been curious for years as ...
  • I get that. I use them all the time.  But is there anywhere else on earth that DPReview Members also use to talk about their photos?  Or are dpreview subforums the only place that DP Review ...
  • I saw the Google suggestion, but that's not really an answer. There is a pretty significant difference between saying (a) I use a Tenba bag, or a Gitzo tripod, and here is why vs.  (b) Google ...
  • Damned near nobody answered his question beyond go to DP Review subforums - although I will admit I didn't read every single answer and could have missed some good suggestions. Its a legitimate ...
