  • I saw a test (sorry, don't remember where) that they tested budget and high ££ UV and "protective" filters for light transmission and colour cast and etc effects. And the budget filters were within ...
  • That's what she said! Yes... she said that too!
  • Actually... that's not a bad idea... not weird at all. Kinda weird... but useful too. Hmm... weird... Not weird, some street art is amazing. A teensy bit weird - but very handy for quack access to ...
  • I buy the things that matter from whatever maker I've chosen - lenses, batteries, etc... but not bags and pens and lens cloths. Why pay £30 for a Canon branded lens cloth when a plain no-label one ...
  • My thoughts: "what?"...  "oh, bugger, what a typo!!"... then... "HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!" "Shitter speeds!!"  -  awesome! Actually, you DO make a good point there. All of those things are specific to that ...
  • Replied in Oh my :-)
    Huh? Nikon USA is competing with Nikon Korea? No one is expecting Nikon to service Canons... but a Nikon camera should be serviceable anywhere on the planet by any Nikon services. What highlights ...
  • Example - take away the feels of "with a dying comrade"... and it's still a great photo. They could be one asleep on the other, exhausted from their battle, and it's a good photo. The feels adds to ...
  • Not "arrogantly belittling" - just disagreeing that they are fantastically "wow" and amazing, etc... I still feel that they would not be considered "wow" without the "humanity feels" of them.  ...
  • To frame the subject the way you want them. It's the position change that created the perspective, not the lens length.
  • And yet you STILL insist on getting it wrong. It's not the longer lens that compressed the background - it's your change of POSITION.
  • So... because they say "wow" everyone has to say "wow"? 1 000 000++ people love "Big Brother" or "Dancing with the Stars" - does that mean I have to love them both too? I'd rather cut my wrists...
  • Ooh... good catch there, I didn't see his list - you might be right. He's not wrong for preferring primes, not even wrong for sticking to one lens. The fallacy comes from having that lens dictate ...
  • Exactly - some people love Picasso Cubism, some people think Constable is "twee". I don't particularly like Cubism but tend to like most of Constable's work (not all). Neither is right or wrong, ...
  • No, they are both part of the decision. What if you want only a head and shoulders but also want a wider open background? "Jodie's head with all of Mordor behind her" What if you wanted head and ...
  • Replied in ROFL (n/t)
  • That sentence displays his poor-choice-making for photography. A photographer decided the picture he wants - including effects, bokeh, background, DoF, etc - and then picks the lens (or zoom on the ...
  • We agree... maybe just wording is a little differently, but definitely agreeing here.
  • Now that bit is true - a third -party service agent could easily be lugged with fixing a BM camera. But (if, hypothetically, the BM cameras got warranty) they get paid by Nikon for the ...
  • Replied in change a word.
    That's why DPR killed the Off Topic - secret reason - there was extremely little evidence of "brains" in OT and all the zombies were dying off (do the undead die?) By killing OT they have ...
  • I can think of three reasons to not post a "finding". 1 - no research dine to generate a finding. 2 - research done but nothing useful to report (or, 2b, research done but results would be ...
