photophile: Seem to recall the F31fd (might have been a later release) having impressive low light (max ISO 3200!!) performance - at full 6MP resolution. They were still holding their value up until 2010.

In fact, Dpreview wrote: "...the F31fd blows away all its competitors at anything over ISO 200, which is no mean feat."

That's why the F31d brought the money it did on ebay after it was discontinued.

I bought the excellent F31d when they were released in 2007, enjoyed it for a year, then bought my first DSLR and sold the F31d for significantly more than I paid for it.

I sent a link to your video to friends with the subject "weather as art", which it is. In addition, there were moments in the video that would be great still shots, also art.

I disagree. Phone cameras are taking over with the masses because they always have their phone with them and there is no need to carry a second object (camera). Also, phone cameras are now good enough for the masses. Neither of those things is going to change.

On article Adobe announces final Camera Raw update for CS6 owners (470 comments in total)

I didn't like the Photoshop convertion of Canon RAW files when i tried it a long time ago, so I stuck with Canon's DPP for RAW conversions and it just keeps getting better. So I still use my legally-purchased Photoshop CS2 and see no reason to upgrade or care about what Adobe does with Photoshop. If in the future I feel that the cloud subscription version offers something I really want, I'll do that but not before.

KBarrett: The flash sync speed is 1/50? Holy K1000, batman!

Flash sync speed 1/50 sec is unbelievable and unacceptable. Flash fill in direct sunlight would not be possible. What were they thinking?

On article Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review (2081 comments in total)

It's the same size as my XSi and 10% heavier. What did it do with the should-have size advantage of the 4/3 sensor and lack of a mirror?

In reply to:

micahmedia: Anything yet that will transfer directly to a computer or server via internet, without going through a third party server? I talked to Eye-Fi a couple weeks ago and they admitted they still couldn't do it. Had to go through their servers.

You mean that all file transfers from the Eye-fi card go through Eye-fi web servers?

seri_art: Can you shoot RAW + JPG and have the card transfer only the JPG files?

I'm assuming only one card slot.

seri_art: >I would recommend direct connect (card straight to device) rather than an ad-hoc<

I'm not clear what direct connect and ad-hoc mean. Where there is no wifi network available (many outside locations), how do you effectively transfer photos from the card to either an iPhone, iPad, other phone or tablet, or laptop wirelessly?

If you are where you have a good wifi connection (fast), is it better to use the ad-hoc method?

On article Camera shipments continue to fall (133 comments in total)
In reply to:

gerard boulanger: I hate to say this but "smart" phones and their integrated camera devices are eating some of the market share of the entry level digital cameras.
Anywhere you might go in the world, most people take souvenir/family/vacation pictures with their telephones.
Now, how to explain the drastic drop in shipment re DSLRs and even on the relatively new concept of mirrorless cameras? Economy, lack of new technology, prices?

> since the product has pretty much matured feature and IQ wise there's no real reason for present owners to update<

I couldn't have said it better myself :-) I said the same thing differently above.

On article Camera shipments continue to fall (133 comments in total)

After I got my first digital camera in 2002, I upgreaded often as new cameras arrived with much-improved ability, especially image quality. But now, I've had my XSi for five years and see no reason to spend the money to replace it, because it's so good. Same with my S100 pocket camera I've had for almost two years.

I'll vote with my feet by staying with my current version of Photoshop. If I decide I want more or improved features, I'll find different software. Photoshop isn't the only game in town and will be even less so in the future.

On article Simple Photo Tips: Square format images (27 comments in total)

Jirka and Mark H below have it right, that the Rolleiflex and other cameras like it were square format because of practical necessity. What they didn't say was that photographers who used those cameras often cropped their photos to make non-square images. That said, square is an option that probably isn't explored often enough.

caterpillar: Sounds good! We'll just have to wait to see how it actually works before more comments and suggestions come in!

I have a question though, how will this revamped pages work out with android OS or tablets/smartphones accessing it? Do you have a separate/alternate template for that or it will work just the same?

On another subject, I bet those stats on complaints column is going to be a subject by itself! A positive or thumbs up column would also be helpful.

I second (or one-hundredth) the Skip the 'Voting on threads and individual posts'. If would very much degrade the forums and quite possibly push me right out the door.

On photo DSC_6638 in the Something old and something new challenge (1 comment in total)

Great shot, whether the perfect alignment between the two planes is perfect execution or perfect luck :-) Don't let anyone tell you that you should have used a slower shutter speed so the propeller on the P-51 would be blurred; it's just fine as is.
