  • https://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Challenge.aspx?ID=12484 Your entry has been disqualified from the challenge called 'Ultra Asian Indian Female Faces' for the following reason: no reason given. M ...
  • I don't believe in lens "colors" either, or least they can easily be adjusted. The scene WB is much more important than any "color." As for poor Thom Hogan, the least said the better about that ...
  • Even something larger like a Canon 5d makes a good walk around with a pancake lens, doesn't feel heavy at all. Not a bad idea having some small lenses. Plus, a lot of average consumers might be ...
  • Replied in yup
    Fanboy = defend product because of the name Fan = defend product because of the features and function. Fanboy = unreasonable response to any perceived slight. Fan = informed discussion and ...
  • Real benefits come when you learn to paint and control the light, which has nothing to do with exposure. Sensors don't capture light, lenses do. The best sensor on a slow lens is 16 times worse ...
  • I found A-Sign's post perfectly reasonable. What have YOU contributed?

  • Replied in but . . .
    Wouldn't Weston have appreciated, maybe even craved, today's cameras? This is basic logic. The fact that SOME people get equipment they can't use utilize doesn't mean that everyone is in the same boat.
  • Proprietary batteries needing a new charger? How much are the spares?

    AA's can be changed in secondary, you can have dozens of spares, and you can use them for anything in your house when your not...

  • Person asks a question, the thread is immediately diverted into something that doesn't help the op at all, just so you guys can show off your smarts and argue about how many angels are dancing on ...
  • And then one of the runner up companies would have to add a great feature to compete. And so on and so on. Or, you can't hit a moving target as technology marches on. The point is, cameras had a ...
  • Everyone says that, but the truth seems to be that the costs are increasing with mirrorless. There are a lot of good reasons for this, but the primary one is simple and evil: it's easy for the ...
  • Replied in ugly is ugly
    An ugly picture is still ugly no matter what sky. The real problem with most photographs is that people are lazy. They won't walk, won't get up early, won't plan things out, think rules are too ...
  • This has been posted a thousands times. It's like driving a Toyota and a Ferrari to the grocery store in rush hour traffic, and saying they both gave the same results. Understood, but does anyone ...
  • Well, those are pretty much standard across Asia. Are you surprised? Really, the internet is your friend. Do you seriously want to waste internet posting karma by asking if tile gets hot on a hot ...
  • What a shouting, demanding post. DID YOU EVER HEAR OF GOOGLE? You really think we have the time to help lazy people like yourself? WHY NOT LOOK on the 1st page of DPR? Why do it? How can we know ...
  • I have goggles, safety glasses, sunglasses, snorkeling masks, ski masks, bike racing glasses. My lens filters are about $20-30 each, 2nd hand but good quality. Eyes heal from minor scratches. ...
  • Encouraging photographers to make their unknowing subjects angry? What could go wrong?

  • Submitted a challenge entry Thai New Year
    Thai New Year Beauty Contestant
    Placed 9th in the challenge. Thai New Year Beauty Contestant
  • Low light performance is mostly determined by how fast the lenses are. Differences between sensors these days are pretty minor. What you really want is the camera with the cheapest, fastest ...
  • Me thinks you are confusing design with fashion. Design is for a purpose, fashion is whatever. Same reason there aren't more pink cars out there.
