QuarterToDoom: Who would be stupid enough to pay $100K when you can get the phenomenal iPhone7 for $1000 and take better photos.

This amount of money isn't about the camera itself... it's considered worth it, not by me though.
And one other thing... large format film can take better pictures than an iPhone 7.

On article Throwback Thursday: Canon EOS 5D (222 comments in total)

Such a coincidence! Was hoping to see how the Canon EOS 5D would fare against it's successors (5D mkII, mkIII and 6D) in the RAW dynamic range studio test.
I still use the 5D and there's indeed a lot I can do with the pictures when exposed for the maximum amount of latitude with RAW image editing in Lightroom. The photos look very good to me, although when not exposed enough banding can be a problem when I want to preserve detail in the shadows.
Other than that I love it's rich colours and sharpness.
I like a camera that is just for shooting stills with no more bells and whistles than necessary, the 5D fits this bill while image quality is still really decent to get great results.

On article Nikon D7200 Review (644 comments in total)

"This also tells us a lot about the sensor. Using the same exposure means that all the images were created from the same amount of total light (so have the same shot noise)."

Can improvement of the sensor's dynamic range reduce the visible effects of shot noise?

odpisan: What is wrong with those guys?

Why they are doing something like that with souch beautiful cameras & lenses?

Souch "test" is utter nonsense comming out of from the brain of the patient who is seriously mentally deformed.

A pile of CDR discs being pressed is satisfying to watch. But these old cameras being crushed makes me sad. But on the other side... it's not actually 'common' for older cameras to get crushed and it's on video so many don't have to try it at home.

sdhiker: Does anyone have any idea on how to cut down the vignetting I'm getting when using a Nikon 400mm f/2.8 on my Sony A7M2?

I borrowed this lens from a client hoping to get some great pictures using an adapter with my Sony A7M2, but its extremely hard to get rid of this vignetting even in post processing.

Attached with a Metabones Nikon F to Emount T adapter.

Here is an example after lens correction in Lightroom.

Nothing to do about vignetting besides stopping down... stopping down really helps (but of course at the cost of shutterspeed).
Or make a shift towards medium format lenses on such a mirrorless camera, then you won't see much vignetting at full aperture.

Der Steppenwolf: There are a lot featured photographers here that have ONE thing in common.
Could you guess what it is ?
A tip, it's got NOTHING to do with photography at all.
DPR has changed. A lot. To the worse.

Der Steppenwolf: perhaps you can explain yourself, what is photography according to you?

On article Holga Digital camera project launched on Kickstarter (149 comments in total)

This looks to me like it doesn't make any sense... it's like a stripped down smartphone camera in some coloured case... and the lenses are different compared to those of the film Holgas.
And why MUST everything become digital?
Holga cameras are not my piece of cake but I see something in the point of using them... making this in a digital option makes it stupid.
Just continue using your instagram app on a smart-ass phone... makes the digital Holga obsolete. And if you want to use a Holga then go use a real one, with real film in it. And with real lack of depth of field.

Well it looks versatile and easy to use... so when you have enough money to spare and are busy making video's with your DSLR this could come in quick and handy.

You're right, in this case telephoto gives it sense of depth and scale
