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.)

NJOceanView: "Comments, settings, messages and other non-image information is packed in the JavaScript Object Notation (json) format...." What a passive-aggressive move by IG/FB! Why not present it in a manner anyone can read easily -- *.txt or even *.pdf or even *.doc/docx. We here at DPR are more technical than most, but what about someone who has been posting for years directly off their phone who doesn't understand or even know what JavaScript Object Notation format is? Why make it ANY harder to get this information than it has to be? Sigh.

I appreciate all the comments, etc. But I was expecting all the pictures in one folder not separated by dates. :D But, eh. It's free. Haha

@Mike CH
EskeRahn had already said succinctly what you explained.

ZilverHaylide: I wonder if any of these technical wizards give any thought to what they are doing: With every "advance" in image manipulation and content-aware fill, they are diminishing the documentary and evidentiary value of photography. That wouldn't be a problem if the metadata of a digital image was guaranteed to truthfully represent the origins of the photograph and also record the occurence and specific nature of any subsequent manipulations -- but I don't believe that is currently the case, at least not on standard consumer-level cameras. Camera manufacturers must devise an untamperable system, available on ordinary consumer-level cameras and digital images, that restores confidence in the authenticity of the photograph.

I believe this was address by the manufacturer of cameras many years ago, just for the purpose of use in the courts. But here is also some "light" reading on the matter if you care to dig into it further:

visualenvy: Band-aid fix for a missing finger.

Would love to hear the justification as to how this is acceptable...

I love Sony products. But hell no, this is unacceptable.

sharkcookie: Looks very interesting! The price is reasonable as well. Oh wait, it's $5k not $500 LOL OK not so reasonable

The key words on their site under $500 are "Pre Order Deposit".

In reply to:

BackToTheBasics: I think the time of action cameras for regular people are over for all manufacturers. Only extreme sport athletes will keep buying them. People bought action cameras when they saw cool videos on youtube and thought they will make as cool videos if they had the same camera to only realize that only action they had in their lives was on tv when watching a friday night movie. Smartphones are a lot more practical to use and very few actually shoot real action or underwater where Gopro is needed. Action cameras are yesterdays news and drones are the next big thing. All the people who bought Gopros are now getting drones instead only to realize that they don't actually shoot anything interesting with them either and the drone will end up next to their Gopro collecting dust.

I totally love my two Sony FDR-X3000. Freakin' stabilization (optical) is beautiful!

Schweikert: At just a fast glance, the headline appeared to me as "RedNeck DigiBoom". My head is somewhere else I guess. Too fancy for redneck but plenty DIY versions that may qualify.

I first saw it as "Redneck", too.
I'm not that racist. xD

Felts: "Consider features like face / eye-detection AF, full-frame autofocus coverage and 4K video.."

I have and I don't need / use any of them.

Just as I expected. A hard-headed person not able to accept the facts presented, and yet trying to be clever with their reply. Troll along... you're not worthy of my time.

If you say "Horses for courses...", then I don't see the point of you stating your comment of "I don't need..." blah blah blah. Fine.

It's like coming into an article about races horses, saying, I don't need the faster, longer legs, taller body. I'm okay with my donkeys.

Jesus. You seem to be the one not understanding your own sentence: "Horses for courses, but not many on this site seem to understand this."

MatVicensPhoto: footage looks super clean. nice,

I'm in the minority, and I love my 4K.
Edit: Actually, I'm going to correct myself.
Google search "4k adoption percentage vs. 1080p"

JelleNL: That’s where I live! Well, very close to where I live. We’ve had lots of clear weather this year and with that lots of northern lights. This is a nice photograph although not spectacular. Then again, EVERYONE here, including yours truly, takes northern light photographs so they do get old... But the northern lights never seize to amaze me!

I'm so jealous. I really would love to see these at least once in my life.
