On article Ten items you should have in your camera bag (288 comments in total)

Additional items to add:

- hockey tape: sticks to everything, and makes for quick bandaids too.
- permanent marker: sometimes you may need to make notes on your forearm.
- carabiners: necessary for rock climbing, and just as useful to attach water bottles, coffee mugs and whatever else you can clip on.
- corkscrew/bottle opener: never know when a party breaks out.
- bug spray: no one likes bugs.
- pair of shoe laces: tie your tripod to your bag or attach your camera to a tree.
- spare change: sometimes you need that extra coffee.

On article 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months (593 comments in total)

Meh. To each their own. I've been using an aps-c dslr and a complement of lenses, and I've had no issues scaling up walls, climbing a top of rocks, hanging from ropes and cruising around on a skateboard with my kit.

Sure, it'd be nice to have something compact, but until Nikon makes a mirrorless that uses the F-bayonet without an adapter, and has the capabilities for flash and external lighting, I'm keeping my dslr. If they made something with the controls an size of my FE, I'd buy it.

I like having all the controls at my finger tips without having to scroll through menus, and the stability of using a viewfinder over a screen does it for me.

To each their own.

If I wrote this article on "camera buying for street photography":

1. Buy a camera. DSLR, P&S, mirrorless, film or whatever.
2. Go onto the street.
3. Take photos.
4. Repeat steps 2-3 continuously.

No android? But why?

Besides, iPhone users don't need it. They're more like to just instragram their lunch anyways.

Just keep companies like Kodak alive to make film and give me a place to develop and I'll keep using my wonderful FE along with my D7000.

Or I could stick with my real camera.

Does not allow Instagram.

So... I should be stockpiling film like the seeds in Svalbard?

Good night, sweet prints, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.

Flickr is great. It's photo sharing that isn't cluttered by all the crud that is on facebook.

Flickr doesn't need any radical changes, just needs some TLC to tweak some things like being able to customize how the photostream looks and all that.

In reply to:

Joe Cool: He should've just shot headshots as planned instead of instead of trying to force shots that he didn't have the equipment for.

Personally, I don't mind them. Just ordinary shots of otherwise ordinary people.

There's going to be plenty of hi-tech, super composed, airbrushed and photoshopped pieces that will make these athletes into modern gods. They'll forever have their image made out to be something much much more than what they feel they are.

I applaud his courage to do something different.
