About me:

Many times I only see things after the shutter has been released. I need to work on seeing things before I release the shutter.

A Canon Selphy costs about $99. You can take it to parties, indoor events, etc. Take photos, put sd card in Selphy, print out pictures. Nice quality, too!

And the ad showing a person, all alone, no friends, no family, just "me". Sad.

Reilly Diefenbach: O. Winston Link is smiling down on this one. Great job!

Exactly what I was thinking! It is a great photograph, but really should mention, O. Winston Link, as the inspiration for the photographer.

Tilted Plane: boring pictures...how do some people get included and not others? seems like an editorial slant (probably by accident?)...anyway, it makes the site seem a bit amateurish, frankly. and dpreview is the BEST...don't get me wrong.

not boring to me ;) but then I love airplanes and aviation history. What "others" weren't included in this story about the B747?

Jogger: I think they should just leave it as is, with minor repairs to structural issues; if they are looking to create an original replica, then they can just create it from scratch. This is like restoring the roman coliseum to original.

They don't have to, "create an original replica", it IS the original. Just needs tidying up. It was a test-bed aircraft, it wasn't pretty on the inside, it was a work horse.

The Name is Bond: Rather substandard pics. At the very least, the last one of the broom really does need to be square on.

The exposure's have absolutely no atmosphere because the photog has opted for correct exposure instead of the necessary underexposure. Some contrast in pp would have been a good idea in my opinion.

Is this guy a pro? There's hope for me yet.

Interesting how I wasn't even looking for photo imperfections. I was totally caught up in seeing the inside of the first Boeing 747. It is an amazing collection of photos. Many of us have seen it fly, or parked, on our daily commutes to and from work, let alone those that actually built it, serviced it, and flew it. It's and awesome piece of engineering!

kitsap2: This has nothing to do with the X100S, but having spent a weekend with a 24mm Pentax legacy lens on my Panny G2, I found that the corresponding focal length of, 36mm, was really fun to work with. It's a focal length that Mr. Britton describes perfectly.

Ugghh! You're right! I knew it when I was shooting, but then got lost in the "fog" of reading about too many camera's, lately!

Where's the clip of a "smartphone" demonstration?

Lame!

If this was the fourth time for the scramble to attack a machine gunners nest, I would presume to see the bodies, or left over debris, of the previous three scrambles/attacks. The scene shows a completely empty scape.

But then, I wasn't there.

I'm a flickr user, I'm satisfied, and for the price, and what I want, it's a real bargain.

El Crapio: Shutter on the lens is a bad idea. Lenses are supposed to last longer than bodies.

Seems to be what parents would want to present to their aspiring, photo youngster at Christmas time. That's about it. Maybe through, Toys-r-us.
