  • I hope it's priced closer to Nikon's 50/1.4G than Sigma's 50mm Art!
  • I enjoyed Flickr back in the day, and still do -- many for reasons I'll contradict myself later. But it seemed like it was no longer the 'it' place, people left, Yahoo killed the golden goose, etc ...
  • And specifically regarding bracketing, etc vs filters -- yes. Agree with you completely. I still bracket somewhat, usually because I'm looking for a brighter exposure for a foreground element along ...
  • Bald, Just thinking out loud here, as I was in a similar boat. I went with Formatt-Hitech. They're somewhat harder to get here in the states (special order on some flavors they offer). The reason I ...
  • My IG is @swartzfeger Even though my account is strictly DSLR + tripod based stuff (I mainly do long exposures), I'm definitely looking forward to digging more into mobile photography (iPhone 6s at ...
  • I've been dragging my heels on getting on the drone train. That footage just made my wallet itch! :D
  • That's what I ordered as well. I'm 2 inches shorter than you (6'1") and can't tell you how many times a tripod was either not tall enough for me, or not tall enough to get the required shot. I ...
  • Great shot and story, Bob. I've had the Backlight out a few times for minor forays -- mostly from my Subaru to the edge of a lake, or for a quick forest hike. Nothing but impressed from the Backlight.
  • All -- I was deciding between the Clik Elite Pro Express 2.0 and the Mind Shift Gear Backlight. After the helpful feedback here, and reading the Backlight reviews on B&H, I went with the Backlight. ...
  • Thanks all for the helpful replies. In short: I'm relocating from the mainland US to Hawaii (big island). So I will need a backpack that can safely transport my DSLR, 4 lenses, 15" MBP, battery ...
  • Thanks for the reply, you raise a lot of good points. re: 'sticking out in a crowd' probably won't matter much as this will be going out in public very little (other than my one-way/relocation ...
  • My only concern is the command wheel (?) placement on the front of the body. It took me a solid week of unlearning my Nikon muscle memory when I switched to Pentax, but I absolutely love the ...
  • APS-C, right?
  • Replied in Rokinon 20mm?
    Gang -- LOVE THE ROKINON 20mm!!! (sorry for the shouting) It's performed really, really well. Nice feel to the build, doesn't feel shoddy. One nice thing is that the threads take my Formatt-Hitech ...
  • Hi all, I've been considering a handful of different backpacks for my gear and have tentatively settled on the Mountainsmith Borealis. My gear needs are pretty light -- one full size DSLR (Pentax ...
  • Replied in Rokinon 20mm?
    FYI gang -- after much gnashing of teeth, I pulled the trigger on the Rokinon 20mm. Should be here by Friday January 13. It's much more expensive than the 14mm, which I plan on getting since I'd ...
