The printed equivalent of clickbait? :)

I'd of picked this over the Tokina 11-16 ATX-Pro. More compact, less than half the weight, and at least a hundred dollars $$ less expensive.
But sorry Nikon, you're a few months late. Reacting to the market instead of leading it...

On article Imaging Resource selects best cameras for backpacking (29 comments in total)
In reply to:

theRose: Isnt the point of backpacking that you travel very simple and you meet a lot of people? Which mean your gear needs to easy to hide and relatively cheap so you can replace it if it gets stolen? Or is my backpacking experience strange?
These cameras are to me very professional but easy to carry stuff but not something I would bring to a crowded hostel!

I rarely see any other people when backpacking, hiking, or camping. That would defeat the entire purpose of going!

It seems to be something like Google or TinEye reverse search, except you have to register and upload photos to your account.
They don't actually copyright register your photos. If they find an identical photo being used online they have no way to determine whether it's an authorized / legitimate use, or even if the copy they've registered is the original. And it doesn't matter anyway because even if they find unauthorized use, they don't do anything about it.
There must be something I'm missing.

DanPyne: I'd much prefer Picktorial in windows than these.

And Darktable.

(unknown member): Wow, even more HDR software. I thought this fad was over and newer sensors kinda make it unnecessary in most cases. Well, except for the poeple who like the flat, tone-mapped and overprocessed HDR-style

Aurora's been around for a while.
Maybe they had a monopoly on the Mac side, but they need to adjust their pricing to compete on the PC side. $99, marked down from $186, ridiculous. Even their 'sale' price is 3X more expensive than EasyHDR or SNS-HDR. Not to mention the fact that HDR Efex Pro is now free.

The X700 was my last film camera, after a Minolta XG1 and before a D5000.

ybizzle: The first step of the tutorial should be to ditch the iPhone and get a proper camera. ;)

"The best camera is the one you have with you"
How about this instead:
"The best camera is no good if you don't have it with you." :)

Dreamscape Photo: I like shooting on my phone as a change, but I get annoyed that you always get a wide angle. I'd love to have a phone set to a 35mm or 50mm with a built in prime.

I think we'll see an actual zoom before too long.

It wasn't much of a list.
"Because free is better."
Sometimes it is. Most of the programs listed on that list are ~not~ better.

On article Huawei Mate 9 quick review (42 comments in total)
In reply to:

Bobthearch: The video is all-right. And the scenery shots are ok. But the giant-balloon-head portraits are just horrible.

Hi Chris. I know all of that.
But yet people continue to use cell phones for close-up portraits. I don't expect better from drunken party-goers, but the review above was presumably written by an experience writer / photographer and contained ~four~ grotesque near-distance portraits!
The pictures themselves are ok to include, they just need appropriate and accurate captions:
"If you take a photo of a person within twenty feet of them, you end up with a disgusting mess of a photo, as seen here."
"Sadly, the Mate 9 is no better at portraits than most other cell phones."
"In the name of all that is Holy, don't use the Huawei Mate 9 for portraits!"

So operator error? I agree that this camera is completely unsuitable for near-distance portraits, if that's what you're saying. And yet the review contained several of this types of photo, and never even acknowledged the grotesque distortion.

As an aside, plenty of cameras ~can~ take a photo of a person's face without distortion. The inability to do so is an obvious shortcoming of this camera, one that the review neglected to even mention. So I did.

Bobthearch: "The Pentax 645Z is the granddaddy of 'affordable' medium format."

If you say so. I've had $200 burning a hole in my pocket since I did a professional shoot last year. Lol.

Some things just don't come across in written words especially given the international nature of the internet, and cultural and language differences.

I just bought a D3300 kit with two lenses for $300 on closeout for my kid. Now ~that's~ affordable. :D

I know. My entire comment was tongue-in-cheek, which seems to have not come across well. Sorry.

It means their definition of affordable and mine are two different things.

Having earned $200 in photography, I can't justify the expense of upgrading to medium-format. :)

Does this Adobe software add ears to pickleheads? Or it's simply just stretching and distorting selfies into different directions?
