  • I was thinking, just as a test, maybe one could digitize the Mona Lisa, and then via some software program, change her smile a tiny bit, so that she would look a tiny, tiny bit happier. Then...

  • It would probably take a lot of effort to fill in the Grand Canyon, but that doesn’t mean it would be a good thing.

  • I think, Mike, we would just be arguing about language. What words say what, in defining “pure capture”. I’d be tempted to say “pictures of flowers”, but if the photographer has added in a narrow ...
  • It should be mentioned too that we live on a beautiful planet. Some of the best photos are just pure captures of the beauty in front of us. The photographer should always be ready to step aside, ...
  • Replied in Stephen Shore
    Ah, yes, that could help. :-)
  • Replied in Stephen Shore
    I like the photos of Stephen Shore, but I never have understood why his photos “caught on”, and became so widely respected, but other photos of a similar nature as his, are not respected. I think ...
  • At least for a few weeks or months, sometimes even a year or more, a good purchase can make us happy. I am not going to buy a Nikon D850, but there is little doubt that even seeing it on the ...
  • For my iPad, I went to the store, in Paris, 2 months ago, and it sounded like that was no longer possible. They were rather vauge, maybe there was some chance of getting a refurbished version of ...
  • I would think that if you are ready to cast aside the differences because of the secondary camera, then there is zero difference. I am 99% sure that I have even read the hardware is exactly the ...
  • Created discussion thread I like the Home button
    It's not just Apple, but the idea of getting rid of the Home button, it's another example of the same thing. Things are fine enough, and then they go and change what is fine. Oddly, it appears that ...
  • That’s fine with me. No problem. If Nikon were going out of business, this would be awful news, but it is far, far from being that. Great, they will focus on serious cameras. For a few of their...

  • People used to say “the wider the range, the worse the lens”. If it is 3x and sharp, that would be good.

  • https://youtu.be/3199Sm75xH4 it is not what you are talking about, but it is along the same lines.
  • It isn’t much of a photo opportunity, but short train ride to Malmo, maybe 25 minutes, is really interesting, in my opinion. It is done via the lower level of the Oresund Bridge: https://en.m.wikip ...
  • Replied in only problem
    With my iPad these days, it can be Friday night or Saturday morning that I turn on my PC, and then I turn it off Sunday night. Maybe a night of the week, but often not. And the stuff on the NAS ...
  • Replied in only problem
    I have a Synology NAS box, and I like it, the only problem is that it is another thing to boot up. And that takes 2 or 3 minutes. But this is not a major problem. Maybe I need to set it up better, ...
  • I just have a lingering suspicion that 360 degree is a gizmo technology that attracts a certain amount of gizmo fans, but it will fade away after the novelty wears off.

    That said, it seems great...

  • Commented on article Google Pixel 2 sample gallery

    Ouf, 3 or 4 years ago, we wouldn’t even be having the discussion. Now, quite obviously, we are having the discussion. Not everyone agrees, but that is par for the course. But both sides are right....

  • Commented on article iPhone 8 Plus sample gallery

    Yes, it works with all objects. I own one, I know, for sure.

  • Commented on article iPhone 8 Plus sample gallery

    Tomorrow will be two weeks of owning the iPhone 8 Plus. I am very happy with it. But I bought my last smartphone 3 and a half years ago, so I needed a new one.
