  • Is Nikon's Key Mission camera system next to go, or has it been discontinued already?

  • First of all, I always enjoy your photos. Secondly, we are finally getting to go to Florida in early November to take our grandkids to Disneyworld.  Anyway, we will have some "adult time" to ...
  • Replied in Drifting away
    Maybe it's because I am an A mount user ( where it seems that Sony is getting bored with us). Anyway, I seem to visit this site a lot less then I used to. When I first joined, many years ago, it ...
  • Good idea. I once took a wedding photography course at a local college in the evening. Learned an awful lot about lighting, camera settings and it was interesting having a working pro review your ...
  • I live in Toronto and, because of the exchange rate for the Canadian dollar, a lot of American movies are filmed here. Toronto has filled in for a lot of American cities and sometimes it's ...
  • Replied in Yes, but
    I enjoy taking photos, (probably take way too many), but, strangely I find myself coming here, to DPR, less and less frequently. Could be because I am a Sony A mount user, and not much is ...
  • Have  been to a couple of funerals lately and I have noticed that there is now an obligatory slide show of highlights of the deceased's life and, usually, the best quality photos are the ...
  • I thought that I would never buy anymore cameras as I have way too many. But I can really see myself using this one on my next hiking trek. Damn.

  • Replied in Self-Delusion?
    Sorry, I live Canada's largest city and I get a flyer in my mail box from Canada's largest camera store on a regular basis. And, all kinds of deals for Father's Day on every kind of camera except ...
  • Replied in Not very well
    I have a Canon 710 point and shoot that I took along to a local Ribfest. Nice camera, fits in my pocket but pretty hard to fame a photo when the sun pretty much obliterates anything on the LCD ...
  • Replied in Travel Photos
    My wife and I try to visit National and Provincial parks about twice a year. I usually end up taking tons of photos. Now, as my kids get older, I realize that none of them could care less about my ...
  • Wimps.

    Many years ago, in one of my metallurgical engineering school field assignments I ended up working in a copper smelter for several summers. I had to clear out "slag" or waste molten...

  • Years back, when I still used only film, we were walking towards the Eiffel tower in Paris. I was fussing with my camera and lost my footing were the sidewalk ended. I ended up doing one of those ...
  • Henry's are one of the oldest and largest camera retailers in the Toronto area. I have been checking their website to see if I can pick up a used A850 or 900. What I have noticed is that used A ...
  • For some reason, all my photos with Kodachrome always seemed to have the same kind of saturation and color look  to them as did the photos in older National Geographic magazines.
  • I would expect that A mount, in which I have a bit invested, will look like a real "bit player" in the new Sony universe. Can't see Sony investing much more in that mount.
  • The last picture is making me very hungry.
  • Like many other people who live in Toronto, we have a bit of property in Northern Ontario where we can build a cabin and go up for a bit of peace and quiet. Well, this year, not only did winter ...
  • Not sure about the wedding ceremony, but my niece asked to me take photos of her wedding reception ( a pro shot the actual church ceremony). I took a wedding photography night course beforehand ...
  • I have been a member for a while and usually ready every review. But, as mostly a Sony user, I can remember the early days when reviewers and readers slammed just about every Sony camera that came ...
