How is it different from other bags?

Love those two brands, still using them. My LowePro AW is 10 almost 15 years old. ha

My 11 year old Crumpler messenger needs an update for daily use. I'm intrigued by this camera cube.

The modular design makes it good for daily work and shooting outings.

A hippy bag one would have some secret pockets to hide "stuff". haha

Colour is ok but it's not scoring in the looks dept I'm afraid. It looks like cheap nylon and flimsy with little padding. Don't think it would be good for laptops that don't fit into the 'cube'. Weary of chipped laptop cases with these bags, especially the corners.

icexe: I feel like I could do the same thing with some cheap L-brackets and screws from my local hardware store.

Definitely cheaper than $21/-

In reply to:

adegroot: $21 each? That gets expensive quickly!

These brackets cannot be used for Brownies, old cameras with no tripod socket, TLRs, many medium format cameras, and you name it.

I have a small collection of old cameras, but this gadget is decidedly not for me.

The issue of dust settling on them is indeed a crucial one.

I think it should be in a glass case.

belle100: OK nice. Over to Nikon camp. What can D5 do now?

Don't think Nikon video is on par.

Good enough for most situations but the AWB of the Canon sounds godsend.

Thank you, I enjoyed the workflow and decision making in a low contrast subject processing.

To the haters, p off.

Stanchung: Better DR on the 1DX2 but better high ISO on the D5. 4 cameras having same 80 overall score.

Makes it harder to brag doesn't it? hahahaha

773 points but the 1DX2 is ranked 20, D5 is 23 after all.

Tech specs just creeping along.

dialstatic: Given that I just started taking my first astro shots last week, this is really depressing. Kinda like starting a small business and then reading about how Bill Gates did it or something.

Seriously though, the video is spellbinding. I was at least as fascinated by the one that compares visible light to IR.

Comparisons make you unhappy. Focus on what you can change, do your best to ignore what you can't.

It's a struggle for perfectionists. >.<

In reply to:

Gregm61: The "travel" winner looks like the typical photoshop-baked creations I see a lot. Between sun rays that look a bit "too" perfect and images being HDR'd to death, I'm not sure which look worse, but none of them look good to me anymore and fall more into the digital art category than photographs.

http://photo.net/photodb/folder?folder_id=743111

I dunno, there's fog/smoke in the bg and that could produce smoke rays.

As for HDR, it doesn't look overcooked like those from Trey.

anti social tech... my guess is i wont be buying one.

In reply to:

NCB: DPR said this about the Df: "while its cool retro design may make it seem appealing, trust us that the Nikon D750 is a better camera in absolutely every aspect". Once again DPR doesn't understand the Df. Forget about "cool". The Df offers a set of controls and shooting experience which is different from the other cameras in this review and which will appeal to some photographers. The D750 is different. Both are valid choices. Both take excellent pics. Which appeals the most depends on what the photographer wants. The Df is OK.

Also, yet again: "As far as its design is concerned, the Df's top plate offers dedicated shutter speed, exposure compensation and ISO dials. Unfortunately, these controls haven't been particularly well integrated: all their functions are duplicated elsewhere, rendering them somewhat redundant and making it harder than you'd expect to find a coherent and consistent way of using the camera". So the Df offers you a choice, and this is bad????

It's really quite easy once you find the 1/3 stop knob. You'll only be confused for a week max since it looks different.

I still love using my DF after 2 years. More than I can say about the other cameras I've had.

I agree the AF suffers in low light. If Nikon made one with the best of the D750/D810/D500, it would be awesome.

In reply to:

Absolutic: From everything I am reading, anyone who thinks that the photos from D500 will rival full frame cameras even of yester years, is a dreamer. The AF system on the other hand is a top notch. However, the AF system on say D750, which can be had cheaper, is still good enough for most applications plus you get superior image quality plus benefits of shallower depth of field with full frame sensor. D750 will also track things extremely well...... I believe for most people something like D750 is much better buy Today

Thom's trying too hard to justify DX's existence. there.

Not agreeing with Thom on the basketball shot. Washed out colours not my thing.

More shutter freezing power for FX for the same DOF. Also trying to get less DOF is not possible in some cases with DX.

He's saying most of us don't know the difference.
I do. That's why I upgraded from D200>D90>D7000>DF.

I noticed the incremental differences whenever ISO is pushed, shutter speed is sacrificed.

Good thing about a flat colour profile.

fakuryu: Nicely composed images but in terms of low light performance and IQ, it is really not far off the old 16mp Sony sensor found on the Nikon D7000 and Pentax K5

D7000 was good in its time but it wouldn't compare well today.

DX will always have better reach whether it's working space for macros or wildlife telephotos. FX will always have noticeably better IQ in low light and a hint more softer bokeh.

In reply to:

ThePhilips: I use Google Image search regularly, and I yet to encounter the stock photos of high resolution. Largest dimension rarely exceeds 400 pixels.

Also I have never seen Getty images in the search results.

that's why nobody wants to buy Getty's images. Photos that anybody can buy and sold multiple times and yet buyers have no right to use hires images openly.

That's the worst deal I've ever heard of.
