On photo Street Food 2017 in the Your City - Fast Food challenge (4 comments in total)

Probably the best binder clip image I have ever seen. :)
Seriously, a very cool photo.

Camera Conspiracies: I feel like Canon's second full frame mirrorless camera will be a great camera. They will cripple the first one, receive a ton of backlash, and then their top executives will eat magic mushrooms and be awoken. They will realize their old ways of holding back features was wrong, and they will embrace the new dawn of putting their best foot forward. The Canon F II will be something to behold in 2022, and I will buy it.

No. The way it goes is that they develop a new camera, but their development process is so long that it is surpassed by modern technology, so they put production on hold, and panic -- frantically give highest priority to a newer camera with the latest technology and lessons learned by the previous camera development process -- develop a good camera and sell it. Then they go back to the old camera, put it into production, tell everybody it is a wholly new camera, and sell it for a much lower price.

Jefftan: won't buy A7 III now, will see what Canon offer
even if I buy A7 III , competition may force price down to $1500 not $2000

I predict entry level full frame will eventually fall to $1500

Arent we talking Q1 2019 here? You may have a long time to wait for this Canon EVF FF ILC (how is that for a mishmash of acronyms?).

NOWHITELENS: I am a big Sony supporter. I buy their sensors in my Nikon cameras!

I am a bit Canon Supporter, I put their lenses on my Sony camera!

JT26: You're joking? Wow, the newer version of the camera is better than the old one : 0

DPR isnt joking, this isnt about the 6dii sensor.

riknash: Techphobia says;
Rickrolling
Definition - What does Rickrolling mean?

Rickrolling is an internet meme that involves duping a person into clicking a URL or watching a spliced video that contains the 1987 Rick Astley song “Never Gonna Give You Up.” This internet meme primarly ran its course between 2007 and 2009.

Did FStoppers link to this video in their video?

Technophobia should be a word.

So if you use a grip, just put a bead of silicone around the edge before you tighten her into place?

Or could water get through the grip's battery door and then up through the extension that inserts in the battery area of the body?

osv: if you want lithium power, like godox/flashpoint has... you can get aa lithium batteries now, for a $1.50 or less each, which is surely cheaper than a replacement godox/fp battery, at $50 or more.

no doubt someone will clone the external battery adapter for cheap, which will help.

Good article. Yeah, I have been using the Kentlis for a while, not for photography, for my LED headlamp mostly. They are pretty strong and then suddenly go out when they are too low. I attribute this to the little controller board inside them that has a kill switch. This can be good for certain electronics which can be damaged or just perform poorly with lower voltages. But yeah, I have a feeling the total amphours is not up to the level of the lower output NiMh batteries.

Yes, I love lithium non-rechargeable batteries even though they are more expensive. They have a long shelf life and are lighter--if you have an on-camera flash, who wants a lot of weight suspended five inches above your hands?

The advantage of Lithium-ion rechargeable aa cells is that they put out 1.5v, not 1.2v like traditional NiMh rechargeable batteries. So depending on your electronic devices, you might need them or not. Total amp-hours may not be that great. You can never trust the claims by the manufacturers when you order stuff form China.

Classic lithium aa batteries, which come up on a google search are disposable like these: https://www.amazon.com/Energizer-Ultimate-Lithium-Batteries-Each/dp/B00003IEME?th=1
Rechargeable Lithium-ion aa batteries have been extremely hard to find, hence I had to order these on alibaba: https://www.amazon.com/KENTLI-Rechargeable-Battery-Lithium-ion-Batteries/dp/B019O4WISY which now appear to be available on Amazon but are not cheap.

osv, are you talking about rechargeable LI batteries or just disposable ones?

I ordered 12 Kentlis rechargeable LI aa cells while back from China, and they cost me about $90. I needed them for a device that required the full voltage of an Alkaline cell.

NOWHITELENS: These two are really hard core testers. They test continuous AF tracking by using a really sluggish model waddling towards them!

Too bad they didnt have help from NOWHITELENS. Then they could have tested the cameras with the models running away fast.

AlanG: When I ski I really could use a pack of photographers to arrest my falls.

Fine with me, you take out the photogs and I will crash into the group of attractive female models standing around waiting for the photogs you just took out..

It's not the skiers with my name on them that I worry about. I worry about the ones with "to whom it may concern" written on them.

I like the reflection of the photographer in the ski goggles. The monopod is at an angle so it appears the photographer is trying to get away -- a bit late for that.

Ha, I just noticed that. I had to use a link to the Google web page that had the image displayed in it.

I was mocking you, not trolling. This has got to be one of the stupidest camera supports out there. If you dont see why, there is no point explaining it to you. The Superbowl is coming up, lets see how many real pros are "thinking out of the box" like you.

I just invented something I call the pinhole camera. I will send you the plans for $10k.

John _ Finn: Oh dear. Imagine the social disgrace when one is found to have fitted one of these ... adapters (ugh!) ... to one's Leica. One emerges from one's Bentley (Rolls Royces are strictly for the noveau riche) with the red-dot body around one's neck and then ... the gasps around the yacht club as the whisper spreads: "Peregrine can't afford a Leica lens ... he is using an adapter to fit a Canon! Haw, haw, haw". Really, it's enough to make one gag on one's Dom Perignon, it's such a ghastly prospect, darling. What *were* Novoflex thinking?

Well, thanks! Happy New Gear!

Thanks, I'll stick to my punch cards.
