  • This nonsense, coupled with those deepfakes that have destroyed our trust in videos, show that society has completely lost its way.

  • I use this method all the time and I've achieved great results. Just one example with my iPhone. The original shot: And now, the crop of the closest bird: No heavy, bulky, vertebrae-compressing ...
  • Thing is, that only highlights why BBF's days are numbered. A smarter camera with good animal eye detect AF wouldn't focus on the leaves. Years from now, BBF, like focus and recompose will be ...
  • These nerds, who have probably never even seen a real tree, photographed a real flower, or picked up a real camera, are cheapening the value of all real photos out there and killing photography as...

  • Following closely on the heels of his outlandish and much lampooned claim that the Z bodies are selling well (something he based on the sales of his encyclopedic how-to tomes), this latest ...
  • Good point. Down the road, one can envision some form of augmented reality/machine learning that provides more advanced aids (e.g., with framing/composition) than the ones most of us currently use, ...
  • I think it's a cool shot.
  • I remember the days when I used to wait hours to download a 100MB game demo over dialup. When the game did finally download, it felt that much more worth it. There's a reason for it. It's called ...
  • George...George...there's no need for such hyperbole and histrionics. As someone with perspective once rhetorically challenged those of us with a dearth of it, does a kitten really die somewhere ...
  • Replied in DAFUQ?
    It seems to be because it takes the OP mere minutes what his chief detractors require hours, if not days, to accomplish. Speaking of the latter, it is ironic that they apply the "usefulness" ...
  • McCarthyism at its finest. Could it be that that those users you purport to be multiple account holders "never deny it when accused of it" because they can't be bothered to dignify such tripe?
  • No. A smartphone can do things a Ricoh GR cannot do. First, its sheer ubiquity leads to systematic desensitization: people might notice the phone; they just don't really react to one. Second, ...
  • It's anyone's guess, but to Buggy's point, some of the OOC files and standard RAW presets are so bad that people, in desperation, try to improve upon them and end up with output that is sometimes ...
  • That's not the only thing you can't do. But I agree with mamallama: if you're happy with the many limitations--some of them real dealbreakers to others!--of shooting with a DSLR, then, that's what ...
  • And if you buy it as Amazon Renewed (with a warranty), the D750 is only $959 in the US.

    The D780 just screams DOA.

  • The Nikon D750 vs D780: Should you upgrade?
    TLDR: No.

  • Actually, what he said is perfectly true. Go back and read what he wrote again. This time, make sure you (and your upvoters) take the time to understand it before jumping to such nonsensical ...
  • Actually, what he said is perfectly true. Go back and read what he wrote again. This time, make sure you (and your upvoters) understand it. He's talking about auto mode , not Auto ISO. You people ...
  • Shooting with a phone over a DSLR? I do it all the time--and to great effect! For street photos, no one even bats an eyelid at a smartphone. The poses are much more natural and the shot quality, ...
  • @Brent: It's not those novices' fault that their dedicated cameras are simply too dumb to employ as savvy a custom tonecurve as smartphones to create pleasing JPG output--either for use as-is or...
