About me:

!! Excited to be buy a Sony a7S II soon! I can't wait! Only 9 days more, maybe! Ack! :D haha! (Oct. 7, 2015; weds.)
Update: Oh my GAHHH! I just got the a7S II about 6 hours ago, at around 4:30 p.m., after work! Ahhhh!!! I'm SOOO excited for this low light monster! It is smaller, and kind of cramping my hands up compared to the D800, which fits my hands nicely. But I'll be making the best of it. "Sacrifices..." :D (Oct. 19, 2015; mon.)

I now am waiting for my first full-frame DSLR! It is the Nikon D800! I can't wait to play with/use it! :) (Sept. 12, 2013; thurs.)
Update: It arrived at 7:08 p.m. on Friday the 13th. :D 2013. Oh boy, two 13s. Does this bode well for me? Yes! I got a full-frame camera. Will it have left sensor focusing problems? I certainly hope not.

Looking into digital camera capture. Fuji S5Pro's dynamic range is really high up there for me. Seems like 'the look' more closely resemble film's ability to keep highlights. Hope that's the case. I just HATE that digital look. 'Crossing my fingers'. HA! ... Update: Woot! I'm getting the S5 Pro. Yippee! My first dSLR. Should be FUN! (Sept. 8, 2007; sat.) --shipment has arrived-WOOHOO!!-(Sept. 11, 2007; tues.)

moimoi: There is a simple answer to that, don't shoot portraits with wide angle lenses! Simple, and efficient!

@marc petzold
Good for you. Other people aren't like you.

That is absolutely amazing to me. Great work to all involved!

huyzer: What happened here? Underexposure by a stop? I don't think that would drastically affect it that much, so I'm thinking something else.

@wasTF
Well, I think that's true with all adjustments and sliders.

@wasTF
Thank you! Hadn't looked at that gallery. Now I see what you mean. :)

@JordanDrake
Hey Jordan! Thanks for the input and verification. Would be interesting to see how the dehaze works, just for fun (of course, knowing me, I'd leave it in because that's the reality of the situation). Anyhow, I love your videos/reviews on YouTube (prior) and DPreview.

Cheers to ya both.

Hmm. I don't know. Seems like six pictures ahead of this one, has also that low contrast look. I didn't see any red smoke in the background of the other pictures.

SmilerGrogan: How am I supposed to fit a 31-inch monitor on top of my GH5?

You're not supposed to mount it on the camera. The best usage case is to mount it like those VR goggles. Google might be willing to send you a cardboard box.

Imager of: Not being funny, but this no different than the video I get from my iPhone 5s! What am I missing??

@Vincenco
I didn't think it was snide at all. I think you're reading into it.
A question was asked. Horshack answered it.

Bad publicity is still publicity, and here you (North Face) have done well in making is so that I will never buy your brand. Bravo.

ZilverHaylide: Absolutely idiotic. Because now you can't obscure the camera to insure privacy without also obscuring part of your screen.

The transformation of cellphones into devices that spy on you and insure your obedience to your masters is now complete.

@Silver Hay Lid
I haven't deflected. But you have. Your reflectance is brilliant, and I've positively reinforced that tin foil hattery in all my replies. ;)

Ergo607: No front camera, no selfies. You're done...!

It's amazing how self-absorbed some of y'all's comments are. Heck, if video calls don't work for you, fine? Just think, some may actually make GREAT use of it, like family from far-flung places around the globe wanting to connect with their grandchildren, daughters, sons, grandparents, etc... But apparently not you.

Here we have Star Trek devices, and y'all are complaining. It almost amazes me... but then again, it doesn't.

Yours might be around this size, perhaps?

What model of tin foil hat do you have? It must be unusually large. ;)

huyzer: I'm actually pleasantly surprised how much highlight is retained, and how smooth the highlight roll-off is. I adjusted the curves down, so there isn't absolutely detail in the highlights, yet still, it looks fantastic considering.

Color me impressed however they do it.

I'm curious if this is straight to jpeg, or a RAW/DNG conversion. Seems this phone can do RAW, which is great.

Very impressive! Zooming in to 100%, the detail of the family is sharp, and isn't "digital"/mushy looking. Wow.
