Great photo. Just needs a bit of a de-fringe on the right sides.

On photo 100m OVRO Antenna-5721 in the She blinded me with science challenge (11 comments in total)

40m or 100m, its still an impressive photo. Nicely done.
You can imagine that ithis could be a dish on a very distant planet, scanning the skies. Our own radio signals may or may not have reached them yet.

It can look fairly nice as its own light show, but certainly not as the main event. You cannot replace the speed and excitement of fireworks and its explosions.

This anniversary is as impressive as their DL series.

MarioV: I'm not convinced that this is really about gender but a clever attempt to stand out in a very saturated field. Very talented and respected male and female photographers are already out there, their work and ethic clearly speak for themselves. So the question is, how do you get noticed? What's your angle?

Yes. If this helps them achieve their goal, and nobody got hurt along the way, then well played.

Great photos. This dimension of freedom use to be the realm of expensive plane/helicopter charters. Thanks to drones, it puts it in anyone's reach - possibly to the lament of professionals, which means this category will get flooded too.

On article Nikon D5600 sample gallery (164 comments in total)
In reply to:

digitallollygag: With the camera industry in overall decline I have to wonder how much longer the DX bodies will be a cash cow for Nikon, especially with small incremental enhancements on new releases. Some out there don't see the need for a D5600 when their D5200 does most everything they want. Introducing a camera like the D5600 with minor tweaks here and there is becoming old hat for Nikon, but something potentially "revolutionary" like the DL series is a year overdue. Nikon has lost its way IMHO.

Agree with digitallollygag. I see no compelling reason to upgrade from my D5200. I would like to see a small body (D500 is too large) full featured camera with 4K video capability. Be a market leader, not a market follower. Canon and Nikon are much yawn at the moment.

Based on this extensive testing, I would be far more confident purchasing the latest Samsung now than any other brand that doesn't do this testing.

Spectacular photography. And the video demonstrates the vast but frantic opportunities for composition from the air. I think this is where high megapixel with high quality lens to crop for composition rather than "waste" time zooming in for composition.

After the initial photo-shoot, I think you'd want another pass around just to put the camera away and soak it the experience.
Expensive fun all round.

tsk1979: Fail. They should have launched it with a full frame sensor with constant F1.8 aperture and 12-2400 200X zoom range, with a 500$ price. The ISO range (native) should be from ISO 10-ISO 1,000,000

IT should also have global shutter, do 4K at 1000fps.

These features will ensure that they will have decent sales. To make it a winner, they should attach a shark with a laser

$500 is too expensive dude, get real.

In reply to:

Joe Ogiba: They should come out with a 50x version with constant F2.8 and 4K UHD.

Iit should have been constant f/1.4, 100x zoom, full frame sensor, pocketable..and free.
edit: someone beat my silliness already. should have known ;)

MarioV: This. "If they can shoehorn 4K video and maybe even better burst performance"
Canon really needs to listen because a LOT of people are asking for this very thing in Canon compacts.

For people who dont understand the purpose of small size, this camera isnt aimed at you. Its for people who wish to carry a camera with them on a daily basis, just like a phone, but wish better quality and reach than a phone. They may not even use the camera. Just good to know its with you because, the best camera is the one that's with you - when you suddenly need a camera. Not everyone is going to carry a bag or a large camera with them on a daily basis.

After going from Full HD to UHD (on any reasonably large monitor or TV), its like going from SD to Full HD. The extra detail is nice. No amount of "theory" will change that.
