  • Replied in another one
    I swear I've seen that green roofed house (shot w/the drone) on lakefront bargain hunt!
  • So beautiful, so deadly in its time.
  • "I need a camera".  Then pardon my opinion but you do not have a photography business in that case.  You also need a computer to process your images on.  The lack of this essential equipment ...
  • I understand that and that was complete tongue in cheek sarcasm.  People will want what they think they want.  And while maybe not perfect I think most camera companies get it mostly right with ...
  • You know, if these lazy, multi-billion $$ annual revenue companies had any actual ambition who knows what they might accomplish?
  • I had a 40D and loved it.  And I understand about liking the ergonomics.  I like Canon's ergonomics and handling.  If you are comfortable with that and like it I like the suggestion about finding ...
  • Thanks for sharing!  Lovely shot of the young lady.  But what am I looking at in the first one?
  • Replied in Lenses too
    That may very well be but I'd still say it's an exception, not the rule.  The OP was also asking about zooms which are more complex and introduce their own set of problems at that aperture as they ...
  • The italicized part shouldn't be overlooked, and its been mentioned by others as well.  I was a product manager for a company that makes electronic supply chain security solutions for retailers.  ...

  • Replied in Dorothea Lange
    I could not agree more.  Her work is amazing.
  • A little more seriously in this reply I think I remember the first article in Popular Photography I saw that mentioned autofocus was for a demonstration camera that a manufacturer had set up ...
  • I know it's a hoax because I saw that documentary, Capricorn One.
  • Created discussion thread Talk me in/out of a Lensbaby Velvet
    I love contact lenses.  Or at least I'm in love with the idea of contact lenses.  It's just that every time I get an eye exam and order contacts after about a month I just stop wearing them.  What ...
  • I did the same just recently.  I have the G9 paired w/a Oly Pro 12-40 f/2.8.  I came from APS-C (Pentax K3).  I just saw which way the winds were blowing and decided to make the jump now.  That's ...
  • Hi Katy, Go here: and go to the step below.  Follow that and then continue on.
  • I just updated mine yesterday using the tether method with the USB cable from my laptop to the camera.  Worked great.
  • Wow. Amiga talk really takes me back a ways. In the Amiga Commodore had something so advanced they really didn't know what to do with it or how to market it. It's like if the first airplane...

  • Replied in B&H Photo
    I would say if you are in Manhattan then a stop at B&H is a must visit.  It is both an interesting and amazing experience in one.  I requested their full catalog years ago (everything, not just ...
