About me:

Self deprecating talentless amateur photographer hoping to become better. Biggest impediment to overcoming low opinion of photographic skills is having an extremely talented and successful photographer as a sibling. I strive to improve, think I have then I am shown some of their recent photos. This would be very depressing if it wasn't for the fact that I am having fun and I can see that my photos are getting better, bit by small bit.

steelhead3: HDR merge should be hugely popular with Canon shooters and the limitations of their sensors.

Only those that get hung up by this. Most of us just carry on taking photographs that look great.

Looks like a good update to Lightroom. Still not perfect but better overall than anything else out there, well has to be as LR5 was As for the whingers who are saying that they are off. Bye, enjoy your alternative software.

paulbysea: You are getting a lot of camera for your money I think. Not for me but I expect many besides the target pro market will be tempted to buy this.

Yes the low budget pro market, i.e. lots of freelancers looking for their break. Maybe not pro as in broadcasters or big budget news gathering but still people looking to start earning money.

On Medium well done: Two takes on the Pentax 645Z article (249 comments in total)
In reply to:

paulbysea: I have ignored this camera until know. These two reviews have given me pause for thought. I currently have a 5D3 and was wondering about getting a 7D2 for my more action orientated shot and keeping with the 5D3 as I develop as a landscape and product photography. Now I wonder if I should sell the 5D3 as well and go for the Pentax. Or maybe I should wait and hope canon bring out a similar camera, albeit one where you can use EF lenses to crop down the body to FF in a similar way that Nikon can with their system. Whatever I do will be after xmas, probably spring time. Need to sell some classic Naim amps and Meridian 104 tuner first to free up some cash first.

In an ideal world I would have the 7D3, 5D3 and the pentax.
Thanks for the rotate camera trip, I used to use it with my 7D1. Will try it with the 5D3

On WaterWeight rethinks the sandbag approach to stability article (77 comments in total)

An product that does not really need inventing. Hang your camera bag from your tripod. Works for me.

Yet again this site assumes all readers use Iphones, despite the fact that more Android phones are out there. If you are going to review a product make sure it supports the dominant mobile operating system.

Well it would if you could still download iOS8. which has now been withdrawn by apple due to several problems with it.

August is traditionally a quiet month in the press. Canon are using a much used idea to get some worldwide all but free advertising. Well done to the Canon marketing department I say.

Sounds like a typical case of a big corporation bullying a small company. Hope Walmart lose and have to pay costs.

Clever idea but way overpriced. I will wait for a more realistically priced alternative.

On 5 photography apps to download to your new iPad post (157 comments in total)

As per usual the media only think about Apple. What about an article about apps for Android Tablets, The Nexus 7 2 has a better screen than any apple product, which suggest it would be better suited to photographers than over priced apple products.

I think this judgement is fair to all. Photographers complain when people use their images without consent or payment, why should we get different treatment. Lots of visitor attractions allow amateur photographers to shoot and print their shots for personal use, yet do not allow professionals to sell photos of the attraction without consent and a royalty fee. Which seems fair to me.

As soon as i saw the reviewer doesn't appear to know the difference between aperture and sensor size I decided not to read further,

In reply to:

erichK: International carry-on weight limit: 10KG or 22 pounds.

Weight of this bag: 12 pounds.

Enough said: increasingly, airlines do weigh carry-ons.

Totally agree, the reviewer really needs to think things through before writing. Probably a great case for use when you are not flying but useless for international traveller.

Interesting if Canon can get it to work.

Your invent something, you can call it what the eff you like and determine how it is pronounced. If he wants GIF pronounced with a soft G then that is the way should be.

Fine if you live somewhere with a good internet connection. At home I would consider cloud based services, I have a reliable 60mb connection. When I am at a friends house in the English countryside, where the interconnection is very slow about 1.5mb download and 100k upload, it would not be a viable way to work due to time taken to upload an image. Adobe how will you support CS users with slow internet connections?
