Is there actually anyone who thinks this is a good idea?

This looks more like anti-criticism tools.

I still have my D1H. It's not for sale, but if you contact me that could change.

badi: Using the 3x3 grid to manually edit/crop/create your "years of photography" is a basic mistake. A pretty stupid one. It's expected that such an arbitrary thing will change in the future (displays change in size and resolution, design trends change... etc). It is not written in the terms and conditions that the photos will be always displayed 3x3 ... if you create (by hand) mosaics like those... it is your own risk.

On the other hand there is no real reason for instagram not to allow the option that user who want the old grid to keep it. Or, even better, allow the users to mark photo sequences as different grids, and display them as such, filling the sides with single images... easy-peasy....

Like Facebook and DPR, it's about how the site wants itself to be presented--the users are meaningless.

In some places it's safe, in others it is not.

However, it is inevitably clichéd.

Also, where in "Los Angeles" was this taken--nowhere this native knows of.

High ISO, surely the most overrated of camera specs.

In the days of film, Clint, I used flash.

Again, I'm talking about a fast moving band in a 400 square foot room lit by a single 100-watt bulb. That's not much light.

It's the most underrated of camera specs for me.

It all depends on what you shoot. Try to shoot a hyperactive rock band in a room lit by a single 100W bulb and get back to me about how important ISO is.

How about charging for inhaling federal air?

When it's the government doing it, it's anything but capitalism.

maxnimo: Enjoy nature while you can, because if this trend continues the 0.01 percenters will soon own all the national parks and wilderness areas, while the rest of you live in slums - concentrated in special areas deemed undesirable and worthless. If you try to escape, you will be charged with trespassing and moved to a small, windowless solitary cell until you die from disease.

Now the bad news: It's highly unlikely this trend can be stopped. New technology has finally given the ruling class unstoppable power. I wish I could help, but all I can do is warn you.

This makes no sense whatsoever. The 0.01-percenters are facing the same problem as the rest of us.

This is the government taking away your access and right to enjoyment and reasonable use without petition.

A whole lot of people looking for a political website got lost and ended up here.

If you can't discuss her photography, stay off the keyboard.

eagle14: Interesting fight here-- which should take precedence, the creator's intent or the common usage?

In other words, a question for each side to consider:
None of you invented the English language, nor is the originator of this particular word available for comment. So... is the 13th element (which is spelled aluminium) pronounced "uh-loo-mih-nuhm" or "al-you-mih-nee-uhm"? =)

The British pronounce it differently because they spell it differently--with an additional syllable.

Robert Eckerlin: This is surely not my specialty. But I have nevertheless the impression that the industry (i.e. companies developing photo cameras and companies developing RAW-processing software) should come up with new additional standards in the area of RAW formats in order to avoid future repeats of the problem that we have encountered.

These new additional standards should on one side allow camera developers to be innovative (for example in the current particular case the use of other than Bayer arrays) and on the other side make sure that the developers of RAW processing Software can support without too much struggles these innovations. .... (continuation in next post)

Why are people typing raw in ALL CAPS? Does it stand for something?
