Excellent news! Two of my favourite gear reviewers by far.

Camera Conspiracies: Constructive criticism. Can you please stop updating these old articles and just write a new one? I hate seeing the most popular comments are from 1 month ago. Ruins the engagement.

Absolutely.

That's how it's done, bravo Tether Tools.
If only others were taking notice.

locke_fc: Truth is this camera looks awesome. If I was in the market for a FF, I don't think I'd hesitate long.

I don't think it's ugly, but, yeah, there are much better-looking cameras out there.

privater: It's time to introduce Platinum award, since almost every camera now and then is a Gold award

What Dr Blackjack said.
I miss the old days when at least major internet outlets were not afraid of causing offense to a brand and called a spade a spade.
I can't blame DPR for not doing it, though, since everyone else is the same and these are tough times for the media.

How is what TIME thinks of any camera relevant to your camera-savvy readership, who are here because you, DPR, are supposed to be an authority in camera gear reviews (unlike TIME)?

I'm trying, but I'm finding it really hard to see this as nothing else but an excuse to post a positive headline and story about a Sony camera. Is this what passes now for native advertising??

Will B Milner: I'm pretty gobsmacked that I even managed to get in the book, let alone having won something (Stuff like that, just doesn't usually happen to me). If you want to see a higher quality version of my image check it out on flickr - https://flic.kr/p/CrGPbd

That's a stunning image.

Excellent photos. I'd be proud to be the author of any of them. Congratulations to the winners.

These guys definitely need help in the naming side of business.

On article Photo story of the week: I Am Legend (170 comments in total)

Not to pile on or be needlessly nasty, but I find this image frankly mediocre. The composition feels cramped, the highlights too bluish and almost blown out... Sorry, It doesn't work for me at all.

Yes, well, thanks for that last update, and then **** you, Adobe.
Here's where we part ways.

On article Hello Lightroom CC: Embracing the future (506 comments in total)

Sorry, no. This is yet another move by Adobe to increase their earnings no matter what. They are going to push aside thousands (how many? tens of thousands??) of 'prosumers' for whom an upgradable, standalone desktop version is the only reasonable alternative, financially or otherwise.

I suppose I'll just use my LR6 for a few more months while I try out different alternatives for the future, then it's goodbye Adobe.

On article Don't buy another lens, buy a flash instead (336 comments in total)

I've tried, but I hate them. They're big, cumbersome and generally annoying. If I were a wedding/event photographer, sure. Otherwise, not for me.

Cool video. Shows how hard it is to work under pressure and get creative, consistently great images, even for big shot photographers like Joey L.

locke_fc: "...hiring only male Hispanic workers in its entry-level positions. The individuals it did hire were then paid much less than other employees in similar positions,..."

That's just despicable, B&H. You lost one customer.

@waldoh:

Clearly, you missed this part:

"The individuals it did hire were then paid much less than other employees in similar positions..."

So they were paid much less than other employees in similar positions because they were Hispanic. Not because they were low skilled, which was expected anyway since they were hiring for entry-level positions.

Anyway, that's neither here nor there. The whole thing stinks and B&H will do well without my business anyway, since most people seem inclined to turn a blind eye.

In reply to:

semorg: I follow a NY photographer (lady) on FB who used to work for B&H and told me on a private chat that B&H is a very racist and sexist place (toward non-jewish workers).

I couldn't believe it or didn't want to believe her, since I buy so much from B&H.

Seems like what she said was true. To be honest, it's hard to switch from B&H. I hate to pay close to 10% CA taxes and their service is pretty good with generally great pricing.

What nebulight said.

locke_fc: I feel tempted because, yes, they seem like fun and they are still a bit novelty. However, I can see the day, probably not too far down the line, when drone footage will have people feeling as blasé as time-lapses. As a novelty, it will wear out.

I see much more of a future for drones as tools for practical uses than for creative ones. Except maybe for a restricted number of high-end videographers working in the commercial domain and doing things much more complex than "hey, I'm shooting from high above!".

Fair enough, I'd be the same ;-)

In reply to:

WT21: I was in a national park (Bryce) a few weeks back, where there is a no-drone policy, and sure enough -- drones. But I can see the point about the professional tool kit. I don't like them much, but the results are clearly desirable. I am all for licensing, though, to keep the numbers down, and limit them more or less to commercial needs or those who are serious about them as a hobby.

We require fishing licenses even for fishing for sunfish, for the common good. This falls into the same bucket, IMO.

Fully agree.
