nofaping: Is any better than PlanIt! ?

I wouldn't necessarily say "better;" maybe in some ways but not in others. (See my more detailed response to the post above.) I have both and like both, but if I HAD to choose, I'd probably go with Planit Pro simply because some of the other features built into Photopills can be downloaded as other apps that are free (HyperFocal Pro, DoF, Exposure Calculator). I will mention that Photopills has an amazing website with a vast wealth of information to help anyone learn to get better nighttime shots.

photo_rb: Hefty $10? That's not even a roll of film and processing.

I downloaded it (and paid the $10) and was able to install it on BOTH my phone AND my tablet (without being charged twice). (Android version; Google Play Store)

Tassiefig: Anyone who can enlighten me about the actual differences between Planit pro and Photopills?

I can't find any comparative reviews anywhere. Everyone seems to just dismiss one saying that the other is better...

If you have used both, I'd love to hear from you

Part 2: I'm sure I could go on listing more differences/comparisons but that would be best left to an actual full review of both of them (by someone more qualified than myself). I hope the little bit above helps you. I think they both cost about the same and in all honesty, I've blown more money on other photo related gear that is significantly less useful.

I actually have both (just downloaded the beta of Photopills on Android a couple days ago; I've had Planit Pro for a couple years). First let me say I like both of them. That being said, it would be nice if one or the other could combine the features of both into the "ultimate" photo app. Both will help you plan sun, moon, and Milky Way. Photopills has a (very) large camera database, a number of tables and calculators (hyperfocal, DOF, exposure, and a few others); Planit does NOT have all this. Planit Pro DOES have features to help time and locate meteor showers, a Bortle Dark Sky scale, and probably my favorite: an angle of view depiction on the planner based on your sensor size, focal length, and orientation (landscape or portrait). Not only that but you can also have it calculate the number of shots needed for a panorama based on the same criteria plus your given amount of overlap. They both have augmented/virtual reality to help you plan a composition (even in future time).

Amazing shot; the type that I dream of getting. Congratulations on a well deserved 1st place win.

RuthC: Your entry was one of my favourites in this challenge. So very dramatic and unusual. What a shame the sandbaggers decided it was too good to be a winner. You certainly did NOT deserve the .5's and low scores in the voting. Ruth

Thank you, Ruth. This was a very fun shot of mine; when I saw this cloud beginning to build, I started driving to try to find a better location to photograph it. (My wife and I were in the city and there were too many "distractions" to get the shot I wanted, so we just started going in that general direction to find a better spot.) By the time we got just outside of the city (Lubbock,TX) this is what the cloud had built up to. The yellow in the cloud is the reflection of the sun just beginning to set.
I agree that it's sad that some people don't have the honesty and integrity to give everyone a fair/ unbiased vote. I noticed that the 1st place winner (I agree a well deserved win) also had received a couple of .5 scores that certainly weren't deserved there either.

Tom Nokin: Very interesting challenge. Some nice approaches and well done. FED and Olympus through the zuiko lens are my favorites. Though some entries are very very simple. What I noticed is, that there is no real still life. Still life was once very popular in painting, but today lives on only as a subcategory of product and comercial photography. A nice still life arranged around an old camera would have been a very nice approach There are only two or three coming close to a still life. To late to submit. I nonetheless applaud the winner of this interesting challenge.

Thank you Tom (the Olympus through the Zuiko lens is mine); I'm glad you enjoyed it. This was actually the result of a crazy idea of mine that proved a little more difficult than I anticipated (it's mostly "as shot").

A lot of really great photos and interesting views on old cameras. This is the first photo challenge that I entered and I'm very happy to have placed as high as I did (12th). Thank you everyone and great job to all who entered.
