In reply to:

errebe: Peak Design travel tripod comes in two versions, and here they decide to list the most expensive one. Why? I strongly recommend the aluminum version.

Well, it's in the text. They were testing CARBON fibre tripods, not alu...

h2k: Did you find him easily understandable? Did you think he pronounced as understandable as a public presenter should?

I'm a non-native English speaker, but usually can talk fluently with native English speakers (except Aussies) and can easily follow a documentary or mainstream movie in English.

I couldn't follow this presenter, even if i was interested. I turned on English subtitles, but wasn't sure they were correct or a doubtful machine-transcript. I didn't check if there were subtitles in my native language, but anyway i would have had even more doubts about accuracy.

Just asking if this kind of English articulation is standard on Youtube, and if it is different or not to mainstream linear TV/movie, and if you thought there was was room for improvement in the speech department or if you were happy with the voicing.

I'd say he spoke fairly clear and concise English. Maybe he needs an adjustment/new microphone, othervice clear on my phone. Regards from an non native English speaker

Quite Nice, though one can always hope for more...then again, it is a phone and they have come an incredible long way. Could be printed fairly large though fur might be slightly problematic

Scrollop: It's so much easier to cull photos with PM than LR.

I've heard FastPictureViewer is a similar program (if you don't need all the bells and whistles). Does anyone have experience with it?

Fast Picture Viewer has been brilliant or culling/deleting, BUT it seems like the develloper has take a pause in the updates for the last year or so. I'm still using it for culling. Fast and easy to mark and delete the unvanted ones

Bobthearch: Interesting. I just looked up the 'needed' photos around here:
Most are on private property, No Trespassing.
Of the others, I've already photographed many of them and have pictures at my local-interest website. Wiki may contact me to discuss license terms if they wish.

@Fly18 , no need to be rude and talk other down like this statement from You does: "And I just checked your site link. Let's just say, Wikipedia is not missing any quality skipping your pics."

In reply to:

Sumsare: You buy this lens for the same reasons that somebody buys thirty-thousand dollar stereo speakers, to tell people that you bought thirty-thousand dollar stereo speakers. Would I buy this lens if I hadn't switched from Canon to Sony? Yes. Would I be able to tell the difference or take better photographs because of it compared to other high-end lenses? No. But to each his own. However, I do give kudos to Canon and Nikon for pushing lenses to the extremes. They may not be as practical but it's always important to push the technology to unconventional areas.

Arun & John, it's a 28-70 zoom lens! Not that many f1.8 or f2 of those around...

In reply to:

janist74: Please help me! Where can I see, that " the Z 50mm F1.8 redefines what an F1.8 standard lens can do"?
Ok, for sure it is a good lens, but what can it do what the others not?

I guess it fits quite nicely to the Z cameras without any adapter...

kirkmc: I downloaded the demo, and can't find any way to make it work with Affinity Photo. There's nothing on their website in the knowledge base about this. I also can't find any list of which cameras/raw files they support. This lack of basic information is quite unprofessional. (And, yes, I googled how to install the plugins to Affinity Photo, and the methods I found do not work.)

Don't know anything on Mac's, but it worked like expected on Win10

On article €80K Oskar Barnack Award finalists announced (91 comments in total)

Actually quite impressive, but not all are to my taste.
Remember each of these are one photo out of a portfolio of 10-12 as written in the article above. May I suggest that You vist the link in the text above to see the complete collections - for the most, quite impressive I'd say

In reply to:

beavertown: Sony casually released this A7R III that is already compatible to the D850, if they quickly release a mark two, it will probably eat up some more D850 market. They are both great cameras.

So You want a Mk3 Mk2?
I guess that'll be Mk4....

probert500: Why does auto focus 14mm seem absurd to me. Stop down a bit, set focus, and everything from foreground to back is sharp. Make a mark on the lens and do it again - forever...

@Godmeme, by wich logic? I was just stating that even a 14mm lens needs accurate focus (maybe not as accurate as longer lenses). You can't just set focus somewhere, stop down a bit and expect everything to be in focus - as someone stated above. I have the Samyang 14 f2.8 with manual focus and it is not possible to have it all sharp, especially if anything fairly close is in the frame. Also, available light might be an issue, at least here up north.
I know Canon is most likely best focuswise (accuracy, speed, noise), on Canon. But to me Canon's 14mm has an insane price for a lens that will only see occational use by me. Hopefully the new Samyang AF is good enough for a wide :)

Well, maybe in theory, but it's definately not like that on my 6D, and I would love a affordable 14mm with precise af. Way too easy to miss the focus if on is in a rush making the pictures unusable
