Great...more space junk in orbit...

Neat! What's the frame rate? Based on the exhaust plume internal details and ground dust movement, it's really fast.

And I always question: "Why test horizontally when a rocket is used vertically (most of the time)?

Marksphoto: when are we gonna get 2 built in cameras for 3d video/photography?

Buy a used HTC Evo 3D from eBay and use it as an android tablet. Don't pay more that $25 for a phone in good working order...

AND you can make 911 calls on it!

In reply to:

ProfHankD: To me, your white signature on dark background is the dominant (or at least a major) visual component of nearly every one of these images -- it seriously degrades the compositions. If you insist on marking each image, I'd strongly suggest making it a more subtle watermark, using tones more consistent with those of the area upon which you impose it.

Agreed!

On article Samsung launches first removable UFS memory cards (177 comments in total)

The memory card race reminds me of all the film formats that were developed, then faded out (who remembers the Bantam format)...

Does this mean a levels or gamma adjustment disqualifies the photo? Every camera and lens manipulates/alters the result in some way...

Turbguy1: ...and you can mount ANY F mount lens ever sold (not that they would all work)...

Gosh, I HATED that removable back...always made it clumsy to load.

Flip backs on later models were also removable...

In reply to:

Peiasdf: I don't understand how VR and IMAX can work at the same time. One is a small mobile screen while the other huge fixed screen.

Imagine a half-spherical screen, in full 3D everywhere you look (as long as you hold your head level with the horizon)...

speculatrix: this is absurd, there have been cameras in watches for years.

They even had FILM cameras in watches!

On article Hasselblad to announce 'game changer' next week (460 comments in total)

I understand they have developed an entirely new type of light sensitive imaging device based on noble metals.

I understand that for some reason, this new sensor material must be immersed in water based fluids at some point...for cooling???

Looks like the rover needs a car wash! Also, see that damage to the tires??

BTW, how do you get to a stereo (3D) image??

On article Nikon offers free battery exchange for D500 owners (96 comments in total)

NOW I see why the price of a D500 is so high...many for "changes" ahead.

In any event, I'm certain it's a great cam!

Thank goodness it doesn't use airbags!

In reply to:

Turbguy1: Stereophotographers are still waiting for display technology to match (or even come close to) the resolution obtained with the humble Holmes viewer, where CONTACT PRINTS are viewed stereosopically, or even the 35mm Red Button Realist viewer (much less a medium format stereo viewer).

They are very bothered by the "screen door effect" from even 4K phones.

Realize there is a slight but perceptible perceived resolution increase when viewing a fused stereo pair of images, and the magnified displays must resolve this resolution issue, or just go to a smaller field of view...

Promising display tech. Sounds like the FOV is still limited for now. I agree that once resolution and other IQ measures get high enough, it will match exceed the older analog viewing methods.

I'm certain things WILL improve. They just ain't there yet using cell phones...
