Halftrack: Headshots in job searches are extremely problematic, as they cause hiring managers—despite whatever intentions they may have—to consciously or unconsciously use applicants' appearance (which includes things like gender presentation and skin color) as a factor in hiring. Outside of a few specific fields (modeling, basically) one's physical appearance should be totally irrelevant in getting a job. In many fields, attaching a headshot to a resume is considered unprofessional for this very reason.

(1/2)

Good luck on LinkedIn without one.

S Yu: The issue with this is that sometimes AF isn't reliable yet without a screen you can't always guarantee that the preadjusted MF is still on the subject at the time of shutter release--this is especially problematic with group selfies of only a few people, often in a poorly lit environment.

Which remote trigger lacks this problem?

Dimijis: Can someone enlighten me as to why a manual lens that communicates EXIF data is such a big advantage ?
Will it make me better pictures ? will it get me more clients ? or make my life overall more fulfilled ?
Coz I would argue that a lens void of any electronics that can fail is more of an advantage.

Who cares if the electronics fail? It is still a completely manual lens. I guess if you hate EXIF data so much you could strip it when you import...

brycesteiner: Please do not touch my screen.

I do not need any fingerprints on my screens, including laptops. The touchpad on the Macs are incredible and therefore don't need me to have my hand in eye view constantly and getting sore from holding it up. Going back and forth from the keyboard to the screen doesn't make sense.

I'm glad that MS if getting into this business to light a fire under other computer mfg's. Apple needs this too to innovate. If Apple does put in a touchscreen, fine, but please don't touch!

This looks very good but there should not even be an option for 8GB, especially at this price.

I wonder who will be the first to install Mac OS on it?

You don't use a finger to touch it you use a stylus. No fingerprints. :/

ttran88: This explains the sudden increase in prices on vintage MF lenses on the web.

A7 was the start but I don't think this forum has had much effect (yet? If it gets popular I guess).

GaryJP: Looking pretty good. Am still trying to decide between the A7RII and this for video work. Not sure if I really need to shoot video in situations the human eye can't see, and the A7RII is very good for much else.

Unfortunately many stills clients in my area these days are suffering from megapixelitis and insisting on at least 20 megapixel images before they will even hire you.

How often do you deliver 20mp to your clients? Are you just doing commercial photography?

Digitalis32: I Nominate the EFF for a Darwin award.

How many publishers have used DRM in the area of gaming,cinema,audio - only to realize how easy it is to circumvent.

The EFF doesn't support DRM.

In reply to:

///M: A few problems: iPad screens are way off in calibration, forget editing photos with critical color management, will be great for editing for Instagram. Try managing files with iOS, total PIA. iPads and iOS were designed for content consumption, not creation, at least not in any way resembling efficiency. Nice e-reader, video playback, game playing device though.

Which tablet do you use that hasgood colour management?

The Scurvy Dog of PR: I was going to share this on FB with my friends, but I can only do it via an app and that's NEVER gonna happen. No more support for 'cut and paste' urls? You guys are idiots. The more you try to control how content is distributed, the less pleasurable the experience becomes. You remind me of Adobe at this point. IMHO.

What? Why can't you cut & paste?

SSantana75: Why is this news? NASA actually did this over twenty years ago using a T-38 Talon aircraft on December 13, 1993

Cool! They've had digital cameras since the 70s therefore any story about a digital camera isn't news amirite?

In reply to:

marc petzold: The most versatile, therefore best FF eMount DSLM from Sony to date yet - but what i've seen from the samples, even with BSI tech, i wouldn't go over >1600 ISO with it...and i don't need so many Megapixels. Besides that, an excellent DSLM...for those who can afford it.

Are you on the drugs? ISO 1600 limited? Have you looked at any sample images?

RichRMA: Nikon Canada found out long ago not to ship in boxes marked, "Nikon." When I ship a lens or related item, I mark it as something slightly different and haven't had a problem. No one in their right might would put, "Nikon or Canon camera or lens."

You have a point about not advertising the brand, but if you don't declare the contents correctly and with a correct value and the truth about whether its a gift or not (sorry American eBay buyers, I'm not declaring the $1000 lens as a <$30 gift. Pay your damn import duties/taxes) you're committing a crime (where I live anyway, maybe your customs agency works differently).

Isn't it a crime to misdeclare on a customs form where you live? It's definitely a crime where I live.
