Admittedly I'm a guy who lifts weights every morning in the gym and you're....wait, let me start again.

I did a ton, make that two tons of hiking at altitude last summer, miles and miles of it at a time, carrying either my Nikon J1 or D5200 or D600 (light vs heavyish right?) and not once did I notice the weight of the DSLR. Never. It was just a three lb weight (at most) in my hands. Only three lbs, max. Not something to groan "if only I'd brought my J1 instead, oh woe is me."

Nice pics, though. Lucky you being able to have that owl hang around long enough for a decent shot.

OK, better than before but still more noise than a D7200. Also, compare for yourself the Canon 6D against the Nikon D750--I never knew the 6D had such limited ability to bring up shadows!

Great video. I spent a lot of my youth growing up in Washington state and know the Olympic Peninsula well. Yeah, more of a "fishing" video instead of a specs onslaught but so what.

This is her "I'm gonna nail this shot" stance. Nothing wrong with that!

There's plenty of people posting pics on Facebook from their phones. SI will not lack for superior content. Insert emoticon of guy rolling his eyes here.

When's the last time any of you bought a Metz product?

Yikes, $1300 for the "kit" lens. It better be pretty darn good!

On article Canon EOS 7D Mark II: A professional's opinion (502 comments in total)

I thought professional newspaper photographers shot with D4 and the like. Ya know, the kind of camera made for that niche, doesn't get in the photogs' way etc. They all do in my area. What newspaper pro shoots with a 7D? Just wonderin'.

On article Delkin introduces new 'Black' range of rugged SD cards (53 comments in total)

I just read the replies below about the bad experiences some have had with their SD cards. I've shot nothing but SD cards for the past 8 years and never had any problem at all.

Never had one stick in the slot, never had the teeth go south, never lost any files from some corrupt SD card. Lucky me.

OK, I'll be the first: is NX-D finally worth downloading?

On article Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 (349 comments in total)

I like the 20mp, built-in stabilization and the faux-no-AA-filter mode. Does Pentax have other cameras with this sensor? Only time will tell about the IQ and noise factor but...I like this camera!

I've been through two bags of popcorn already reading the replies and they just keep coming!

I'm sticking with my stand-alone LR5.4 and Photoshop CS5 for now.

In reply to:

abolit: no criticism intended, but if everything of this camera comes out in focus (can't see any depth of field samples) would it be better just to carry a smartphone instead? Really, what's the reason of having a camera like this besides my Note 3 cellphone?

abolit was surely jesting. I think. Maybe not.

But if he wasn't...I dunno...worst comment ever maybe.

On article Ryan Brenizer on how to shoot engagement sessions (72 comments in total)

I loved all the images the photog in this video chose to show us. Sure, he could cherry pick amongst thousands but he sure did choose some great ones.

As I read the comments below before posting this reply, one thing that sure has changed here is the desperate need some commenters have to just talk stuff and b!tch and moan and complain---well, there's even more of that these days.

Nikon is just about to release yet another 18-300. I wonder how hard it would have been to have made it 16 as well.

Oh well, all Nikon has to do is release a 16mm DX lens along the lines of their 35 f/1.8 (lightweight, pretty darn sharp and cheap) to recapture some momentum amongst us DX shooters.

Maybe the IQ will blow everyone away. Like, sharp edge to edge from wide to tele. Only time will tell.

On article Nikon D5300 Review (310 comments in total)
In reply to:

peevee1: The biggest news seems to be that Nikon seems to finally fix its JPEG engine which was so badly broken it made their cameras practically unusable for JPEG shooters. Now their high-ISO JPEGs look as good or better as Canon's.

What a ridiculous comment. Nikon's JPEG engine has always been great for JPEG shooters (I'm one). What the heck are you talking about?

On article Niki Feijen's haunting images of abandoned houses (218 comments in total)

I'm not bothered by the HDRness of these shots but there is nowhere in my area homes that get abandoned "staged" like this. Who leaves a suit coat hanging on their armoire? Where I live, that would be a crack house and some drug dealer would be wearing that coat.
