  • As a 52 year old Soldier, serving my 25th consecutive year in the U.S.Army, with five deployments under my belt (including four since 9-11), I take umbrage with your delusional comment.

    America, a...

  • I am making a point, very few people know how to ask a question that requires an answer which requires thought and commitment....sales people know how to do this, most reporters, or people who call...

  • First, you do not criticize the validity or content of the question, merely the tone....thus you are relegated (like most Liberals) to attacking minutia.

  • I NEVER understand reporters and their line of questioning, as when Obama said he wants to "fundamentally transform America" no one follows up with the obvious question..."Transform the greatest...

  • Commented on Sony Alpha 7R Review preview

    In the 70's and 80's I do not recall many pro photographers (newspaper, weddings, sports) using Pentax, Minolta, or other non-Canikon cameras.

  • Closed architecture is why I NEVER began purchasing iApple products in the early 1990's.

    In the PC world, the open architecture of MS Windows based PC's fostered 3rd party competition (better...

  • Over $1,000 for a DX sensor with a fixed 28mm lens? I get that it is for "enthusiasts", but that seems like quite a bit of enthusiasm to me.

  • I have been a Nikon user since the 1970's.

    I have had this Tamron 70-200mm F2.8 lens about four years. I bought in Raleigh when I upgraded, purchasing a Nikon D700 to use as a primary camera...

  • Commented on Nikon Df preview

    I like dials that lock.

    I wish the AF selector on my D700 required the user to push it in to change the mode as I frequently inadvertently change the setting.

    Likewise, I wish the D700 Command...

  • The guy from NatGEO is NOT making mural sized prints from his iDevice.......For those of us making large prints, these iTablets are like Fisher Price toys.

  • To Inevitable...thousands for a laptop, really? Though I have a love/hate relationship with Windoze (no built in dual-pane file browser in 2013 like PC tools for DOS had in the mid-1990's,...

  • For those of you not shooting a Full Frame DSLR and routinely making 16x20 inch prints or larger, I suspect these "toy" tablets with "crippled" "Apps" instead of real software (layers, masking to...

  • Is it April 1st already?????

  • 82mm filter? I would have to spend a few hundred dollars; new skylight (B&W brand perhaps?, high quality for protection), a high quality polarizer, and a whole new set in a new size of Cokin type...

  • 82mm filter? I would have to spend a few hundred dollars to remain at parity with my existing lenses; new skylight filter (B&W brand perhaps?, high quality for protection), a high quality...

  • You consider comparing 8x10 inch prints a test of IQ? I will concede that most cameras will print well up to 8x10 inch. Try printing 16x10 and larger, then get back to me.

  • By "medium format" you mean 4x5 inch correct? 8x10 shooters call 4x5 "medium format". I shoot 4x5 film and 120mm film (Bronica ETR-S), and call the 4x5 "large format", just a matter of perspective...

  • If you are not shooting 4x5 B&W film, developing the film yourself, and making your own silver gelatin prints,...you are a cheat.

    Besides using a Nikon D700 I am still shooting B&W film...
