I tried two of them at work (not photography related) and I hated the Surface Book. The first one kept crashing unexpectedly and the second one they replaced it with was just as bad and actually even worse. It's still with the other IT dept while they try to get Windows reloaded on it again (couldn't PXE boot for some reason to get the OS from our servers). Anyway, never again for me. Back to Dell and loving it.

Don't worry about what everyone else is doing. Isn't that what our parents have said for the longest time? I guess they're right.

D200_4me: Keep it simple. Don't follow any rules. Just do whatever looks good for the subject you're shooting and don't worry about it.

One more comment. I'm not saying you shouldn't know the rules and start out with that in mind because that's what I do. I use the rule of thirds very much. I was just more or less commenting on how some people (especially on social media) take the 'deep thoughts' part of photography a little too far. Every photo of a beach or isolated flower people on social media doesn't need a deep thought posted along with it. I love photography and I try to have some kind of emotional connection to my photos when I'm capturing them (if it's not just a quick snapshot I need for a memory on vacation, etc)...but I don't feel the need to post a 'deep thought' along with every image I post.

It's also very good to be inspired because if you're not inspired or passionate about what you do, you're not going to do as well with it.

It's a beautiful scene for sure, but seen far too often by other photographers...so it sort of loses the impact.

D200_4me: I would rather they spend their money on product development. Maybe great live view AF?

Yes, they already know how to do it. So why they haven't done it where it matters most (their DSLR lineup) is a mystery. But maybe they've been waiting for their large sensor mirrorless product to do it. We'll see.

D200_4me: I'm still wondering (as a former X-Pro1, X-T1, X100, X100S owner)...if the x-trans is so awesome, why wouldn't they put that in their top end medium format camera??? Personally, I preferred the look and feel the original X100 files and there was even something about the X-Pro1 (x-trans) files that seemed different and more appealing to me then the newer x-trans.

Thanks. It's the national Air Force museum at Wright Patterson.

For the record, I have many x-tran photos I love in my own X-T1 gallery: http://www.thephotographyhobbyist.com/CAMERAGEAR/Fuji-XT1-Gallery/
But I also have many non x-trans photos I love in my Lumix G85 gallery (and other non x-trans galleries): http://www.thephotographyhobbyist.com/CAMERAGEAR/Panasonic-G85-Gallery/

Use what you like and don't insult other people for commenting on a 'news' article.
I'm not sure why people feel the need to get on the internet and anonymously insult other people. I guess it makes some people feel a little more important than they are. I don't know, but it's disappointing to see it so much here.

If they would only charge around $20 I bet they'd rake in loads of money. Not many people are going to cough up $400...unless for some reason some people made the bad decision long ago to use a free service to host photos for a pro site or something. I'm surprised they offered it that long for free.

I was wondering when someone would pop up with the 'You've got a bad case of GAS, therefore, shut up because anything you say doesn't matter." ;-) Didn't take long. Anyway, my galleries are there for all to see (link to my site on my profile). We're waiting to see yours.

Looks like a great camera overall, but it has a lot of competition.

Wow. That's usually the brand I'd buy but I'll move on to Sandisk now (already have a mix of those anyway).

On article Peak Design Everyday Backpack Review (125 comments in total)

Glad to see this comment: "Small things can slip through the dividers easily and move around the pack" I was thinking about buying one of these but the more I looked at it, the more I worried about certain items moving into a different area or things moving around and rubbing on each other (like a lens in one compartment rubbing on a camera in the next compartment down. I don't know if that scenario can happen but looking at the way the areas are divided, I didn't want to take the chance.

Regarding the overall winner...That's usually the way a great photo comes about (for me anyway)...something just happens in front of you or you stumble upon a scene and take a shot and there it is.

They make a smaller version for micro four thirds too. Anyone ever use this one yet with a Panasonic? Godox Mini Camera Flash TT350o http://www.godox.com/EN/Products_Mini_Camera_Flash_TT350o.html

D200_4me: For still photography, I think the GH5 doesn't get enough credit. If you believe the DXO ratings, only a few Canon APS-C and FF cameras are ahead of it in dynamic range and the body on the GH5 is just a joy to hold and use. I've only had one for about two weeks now and I'm in love. If I may be shameless and share my own two week old GH5 gallery here...here it is: http://www.thephotographyhobbyist.com/CAMERAGEAR/Panasonic-GH5-Gallery/ Having said that, if I was NOT interested in mirrorless ILC, the D500 would definitely be the APS-C camera I'd buy.

@Rodemo Thanks :-)

@Mike FL I believe I read somewhere that the GH5 does use a Sony sensor. I don't know for sure though. I think it was the 43 rumors site where I read that. I haven't seen any info that posts details about exactly who makes the sensor...so maybe it's just speculation or an assumption.
