It will always be eye-so to me.

Sezano: People are still getting married? That's inspiring.

Of the remaining 50% of first time marriages that don't end up in divorce, only 1/3 is truly content. An institution that only works for 16% of the unions, es no bueno. Imagine if your phone didn't work 84% of the time.
Well, we all make mistakes right. Thank good for second chances, hopefulkybwe learned something .... only .... it gets worse with time. Second marriages have a 64% divorce rate.

What about faith, though? I'm not like those other stupid people.

I'll skip the theatrics, have Jimmy take a few pictures with a rented xt-1 and a 56mm.

Now let's see if I can convince Jessica.

I'm sorry life didn't work out the way you planned.

A lot of times it is fake food in product shots, so I disagree.

Well I only have half as much hair left as when I first started, so they had better hurry!

I'm still amused by this.

I'm still mad that my SLR didn't make me a pro photographer.

I used head and shoulders and cracked open a Bud Light, and I've been waiting for about 15 years now for the bikini models to show up and run their fingers through my hair.

I suppose you also want McDonalds to show a real life flat, soggy and pathetic burger in their commercials?

armandino: I really think Canon will start a mirrorless line of FF cameras soon. To me the technical specifications of both the 6DII AND 5DIV are far to conservative for holding up 4 years. They are actually not even that competitive at this very moment. I am sure they are polished products but definitely not groundbreaking. Clearly Canon is creating a vacuum to be soon filled with a new line of products.

Well their APS-C mirrorless releases aren't exactly confidence inspiring.

Canon invented the video DSLR and then instantly stopped caring.

I think you are more optimistic than the rest of us.

I looked at one of these, and then some early Kodak and Fuji a year or two later. In the end I went with a Minolta film camera and waited 4-5 more years... :)

WastingTime: This is the first digital camera that I remember.

None that wrote to zip discs, but later Mavicas wrote to mini CD-R. Those were interesting.

steelhead3: Minolta (now Sony) with the rd175 and Sony itself led the digital revolution while Canon and Nikon continued to go with their film based cameras.

When this was released, Sony had not bought Minolta yet. This is straight Sony.

Smartmedia was awesome. They had an adapter for it that could be read by floppy drives! So you didn't have to use a terrible and slow camera like the Mavica featured above but you could get your images onto the computer just as easily.

LDPhoto: No 4K No thanks

But the A7S doesn't offer 4K for less than $2000. It's $3000+ if you want to shoot 4K.

LDPhoto: No 4K No thanks

But the A7S is the same price as the 6D2 and has only 12MP, no touchscreen, no phase AF, and it doesn't come with 4K either. (It it 4K ready, but you need a $1000 external recorder to use it.)

A7S just hit the 3 year mark and was $2500 new.

On article Video: Removing a stuck lens filter... with a band saw (139 comments in total)
In reply to:

Anastigmat: Recently i had to do something similar, although the used lens I bought was not nearly as costly. The seller put a filter onto the lens incorrectly and it got stuck. I first removed the glass part of the filter which was held in place with a retaining ring that is easy to remove. Then I used a Proxxon rotary tool (a Dremel clone) fitted with a diamond grinding disk (real cheap, costing only a few bucks) to cut the filter rim, stopping just short of reaching the filter thread of the lens. The last step was using a pair of pliers to remove the filter rim.

To prevent a filter being stuck, apply a small amount of silicone spray lubricant onto the filter threads using an old rag or piece of cloth before putting it onto the lens. Screw it in gently and remove it and redo it if the initial attempt was not successful. Don't force it.

This might seem a little gross, but a cheap and always available lubricant can be found on your forehead or nose. Just run your finger on your forehead, collect a little skin grease and the run your finger on the filter threads. They will get a little shiny grease coating. Some old-timer shared that with me and it hasn't failed me yet. :)

In reply to:

Fujica: "What do you do when your cheap lens filter is so badly stuck on your very expensive Canon 24-70mm F2.8L II USM lens"

But that is a B+W filter.
Those filters are not exactly 'cheap'.

Cheap compared to the lens, though.
