  • The iPhone can shoot at 1/125,000 sec. How's that 1DXii to shoot at a fixed shutter speed of 1/125,000th to freeze motion? Answer: The 1DXii won't even get a shot, while the iPhone will get a great ...
  • Ah yes, that tried and true cop-out: "they were snapshots." As I said before, tough luck! As a smartphone snapshot-taker, you're in no position to deliver pronouncements on my significantly better ...
  • My smartphone shots beat yours, hands-down (prove me wrong, if you've got the stones for it...). Hilarious, a vertiginous top shot--the "tilted" cliche--and a bottom one with no foreground ...
  • Splendid! Love how that took just a few seconds. It's great to see their terrific support for layers and transformations. We already have desperate halo-hunters policing smartphone shots, and I ...
  • Yep. Seeing is believing. It can certainly be done...and done well! The tide is shifting. One by one, the last few remaining barriers are toppling like dominos.
  • My apologies for interjecting, but I sincerely do believe that is an unfounded assumption.

    Those photos bear my copyright. Why don't you go ahead and test it? I'll be only too happy to disabuse you of your position. ;-) I'd love to strike gold and take down a publisher. Go ahead...don't ...

    You're a bit slow on the uptake, but I'm glad to see you finally get with the program and caught up to speed. This education...is hard work and a dirty job. But somebody's gotta do it! Another one ...

    I'm waiting for the self-anointed Halo-hunter to loose his quiver of righteous red arrows on this one. Hope he'll answer the dog-whistle again with as much alacrity as he did before!
  • Replied in Really?
    Hardly. They were--and are--of little consequence to an overall great image that has slapped around some so hard all they can see are haloes (and maybe, stars, too?). You're welcome! I'm surprised ...

    Oh, they're there--oodles and oodles of them. Uh huh, yes, definitely.

    Gotta love how my iPhone nailed the shot on this one: Can't get your smartphone to take great shots? Tough luck! Not everyone has what it takes.
  • Replied in Really?
    I've sometimes said that smartphones have a way of separating the truly good photographers from the very average (if that!) ones. The latter often rely on cheap parlor tricks (shallow DOF is a big ...
  • People with conventional cameras often have a harder--much harder--time finding something interesting to shoot. Why? Because the cameras are encumbrances that are often left at home and interesting ...
  • The other day, I saw an Oldsmobile driving on the highway. Apart from DSLRs, I think we should all pause and observe a moment of silence for some other dearly departed things in our lives:
  • You look at Interbrand's Top 100 Global Brands of 2019 and Apple is #1. Where is Canon? Where is Nikon? Nowhere! Looking at Japan's Best Global Brands , Nikon is near the bottom--where it belongs. ...
