I have the 6s and sad to say but I really don't see a need to upgrade. I was looking forward to face ID but $1,000 just for that? No thank you, Tim.

On article Nikon D850 sample gallery (188 comments in total)

I must say I'm disappointed by the samples. Most seem dark or underexposed and the subject matter is lacking as well. I would have like to have seen more cityscapes and landscapes, it is a 45mp after all.

With the a9, DPR shot most of the samples in bright daylight. I guess the sun did not cooperate with the D850?

Rob890: when did programs become apps?

Around the same time the OK and Cancel buttons switched places.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the modern day Polaroid a different company from the Polaroid of decades ago? They make it sound like it's the same old Polaroid of our childhood. It's not.

Let's wait to hear both sides before pronouncing judgement.

Now let's see the photographer's eye.

I can see a market for cameras such as these. I'm a Nikon shooter and picked up a Nikon 1 J4 mainly for it's size. Was getting tired of lugging the D750 around when I basically wanted snaps but with additional features that a smartphone can't deliver.

Very sharp and nice color rendition. It improves on an already good lens.

Triplet Perar: D850's resolution, with good optics, are scary combo; when zooming into the eye of a model, there is enough information to see what was the exact photographic setup in the room.

You can even see the brush strokes the makeup brush made in her eyebrows. Really impressive.

Looks good! How about some sample pics in full size ASAP?

Who would have thought an old Judas Priest classic would be so prophetic today?

HeyItsJoel: I hope there would be live streaming of the eclipse.

Check the Science channel.

A friend asked if she could watch the eclipse with her smartphone. I told her it would be better and safer to just buy some solar glasses. You wouldn't see anything but a very bright light on the phone's screen until about 60% plus coverage.

But that got me thinking, can a smartphone sensor be damaged if it's pointed while active at the sun?

arhmatic: What if the drone kills someone on the ground while free falling? Who is responsible?

Probably the person who piloted the drone over restricted airspace.

Wouldn't be hard to find volunteers for that duty.

Do contracts work differently over there? Here it usually means I perform a service and you compensate me. Not just one over the other.
