Dontcha just love all the armchair lawyers and judges in this forum that have all the answers, probably without doing anything other than reading the half-baked summary of the posting?

tinzi1: I once assisted with couple of bondage photoshoot on tracks, and everybody survived. Lucky?

Are you saying you got lucky during a bondage photo shoot?

haylebob: hello,

is there a ready-to-use download version available, i have no idea to build this for windows 10.

I totally agree, like every Google product I've ever used, it's written by kids with no instructions and hard as heck to figure out. Not everyone's a nerd programmer, you'd think if they wanted people to use this they would have made it at least somewhat obvious on how to do it. And as long as I'm on a Google rant, if they'd fix the stupid ads in AdSense, we webmasters wouldn't have to worry about trying to shave a few milliseconds by crushing jpegs or using the totally non-standard AMP HTML...

captura: I'm waiting for Elon Musk to invent the Super-Selfie.

Problem is, if he invented it, it would only take pictures of himself.

Olivier GALLEN: Suggestion: could you please lower the music level a bit (for your next videos)? It would balance better with the voice level and make a more pleasing video overall.
PS: thanks for this first look itself, of course.
PS2: I mention it because I noticed the same issue on many of your previous videos as well.

I'll go one further: who needs crummy music in the background? Voice only please, just the facts. Music is always distracting.

UPDATE: Nikon to cancel all digital cameras and return to film. Story at 11.

On article Sigma releases price and availability for sd Quattro H (370 comments in total)

I like it, finally a break from yet another "look at me, I'm a 1950's retro" camera. Sigma will sell many fewer of these than the other manufacturers, thus the higher price. I'd like to rent one to try and maybe buy if I liked it.

On article Nikon D5600 DSLR announced, though not in the US (297 comments in total)

I'm curious about SnapBridge though, I know nothing about it. On other non-Bluetooth Nikon cameras, like my D7100 and D610, is there a Bluetooth SD card or some type of snap-on device that gives me the same capability? Or do you have to own a camera with the SnapBridge connection already installed?

On article Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod hands-on preview (152 comments in total)

Photos look like they came out of a cell phone with a tiny sensor. Oh, wait -- they did.

You mean National Geographic is still a magazine? And people still buy it? Who knew...

On article Hands on with the Hasselblad H6D 50c/100c (267 comments in total)

I bet if I used this to take photos I'd get more Facebook likes.

Zigmont: I like the no filter photo better than the weird one with the filter. Just because a slow shutter is good doesn't necessarily mean a moribund shutter is better.

OK thanks, next time I'll check with you first to ask if I can write an opinion in a forum that asks for people's opinions.

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2661 comments in total)

If this had a Sony name on it, you'd literally have to wipe off the saliva dripping from the posts in this forum. But it's a Pentax, that nobody's even seen or tried yet, so expect the naysayers and trolls a plenty.

I think these are fantastic photos, I would have never thought of experimenting with wider lenses, having been "brainwashed" that an 85 mm was the only way to take a portrait. I don't have all the remote lighting equipment, but I'm going to experiment with these techniques. Thanks for posting this, very interesting.

On article Nifty fifty: Hands-on with the Hasselblad H5D-50c Wi-Fi (123 comments in total)

The real story would be how does this compare with a good 35mm DSLR or mirrorless. I would like to see a comparison under the same conditions, same photos in the hands of the same photographer. Not saying one is better than another, but just how much of a real-world difference is there?

On article Retro through-and-through: Fujifilm X-Pro2 Review (2484 comments in total)

Still a long, long way to go on video technology apparently. And call me when autofocus actually works.

In the meantime, I'll use my cameras for photos and my cheap videocam for video.

Yoggie: Smart move. They cannot compete with the cheap knockoffs on the low end so they are better off sticking with the high end. The difference between a knockoff and the Hero+ LCD is inconsequential for the casual user butt the difference between the Hero4 and even the best knockoff is huge for a pro user.

If I'm not buying a GoPro at $199, what makes them think I'm going to buy at $299, $399 or more?
