Interesting, but would be more helpful if the sound had been adequate.

I attended Shasta Jr. College in Redding 65 years ago. Later my work would occasionally take me to the city. I enjoyed Redding and had friend who lived there. Seeing this devastation is disturbing. So many homes, trees, and so much habitats lost and the lives that were lost and disrupted. No amount of compensation can make whole those who suffered this trauma.

I first purchased Shutterbug when it was folded newsprint mostly containing classified adds so the photographers could exchange unneeded equipment and grew to a slick first class color publication. I will miss the printed magazine. However continuing at a loss is not good business.

Good luck with the online edition.

Have you done any comparison of prints for this camera and an apsc (6500) and a full frame? I would be interested in your analysis. Screen shots do not reveal image quality.

On article Analog gems: 10 excellent, affordable film cameras (860 comments in total)

The Canon AE-1 is a capable camera but I would go back a generation to the FD mount F1n. This camera is a mechanical marvel. Everything mechanical except the match needle light meter. The sound and smooth lever advance are so satisfying. With interchangeable viewfinders a high eye point viewfinder was easily installed making action viewing easier.

A second pick for me would be the Rollie TLR. While the Hasselblad was more flexible I had the most fun with the Rollie. Of course I was fifty years younger which always improves memories.

On article Sony a9 Full Review: Mirrorless Redefined (2748 comments in total)

I look forward to the full review. I do hope there will be extensive testing other brand lenses using perhaps the Metabones IV (or V if it comes out) adapter comparing autofocus with native lenses. This may lessen sticker shock of changing system.

On article Behind the camera: Beauty photographer Lindsay Adler (29 comments in total)

Love her enthuseium and energy. An entertaining interview. The editing glitch was noted but not a killer. I did appreciate Lindsay's excellent speaking skills. This would be a strong plus in any lecture hall.

The background and her face are very close in tone. If it weren't for her dark hair she would almost dissapear.

It would have been useful to see some examples of her work but I realize this may not be possible. All in all a good interview.

In reply to:

CheersUK: This is certainly a step in the right direction. Although I'm not a Sony user, I can appreciate that Sony saw a conflict of interest between their design philosophy and their users and potential users and addressed the a degree. OK, the announcement may not please people 100%, but they have proven they are listening and adapting.
I was really thinking of getting an a6000 as a small, take anywhere camera. The RAW issue was a minor consideration, but if a firmware update fixed the RAW "issue", it would be even more appealing. Damn, I may just get one anyway.

You'll love the a6000. Pair it with the Zeiss 16-70 f4.0 and it a great tool. I love mine.

Interesting camera. I would like to see comparison images of the same scenes from this camera and the 810. Images such as portraits, landscape, low light shots, etc. Enabling me to see the effect of the new filter on regular shooting. This may be an all-round camera and we don't know it.

I wish DPR would do a review of the Serif Software. I used it years ago in the Dark DOS Days and liked it.

On article Fashion Shoot: Tips from a Pro (83 comments in total)

Interesting article. Success in any business requires more than mastering a single skill. In anything I have done, a little or a lot of planning made the job easier and more successful.

I'm doubly impressed with the photographer as he has Jeff Schewe as an assistant.
