    Amazon (US) is really trying hard to lose my business

    I can get anything I want delivered within two business days for free for a flat rate fee of ~$100 a year, support my state with taxes, stream thousands of movies, if I want to, rent free books once a month ... Anything. Underwear. Chocolate chips, a dishwasher, a big screen tv, camera gear...

    Apple Uploading from iPad to Lightroom

    Dropbox, or a similar cloud service (copy, sugar sync, amazon, google drive) are probably your best wireless way to transfer. Photosmith has some built in Dropbox functionality. As fun as it was to work with Photosmith on the ipad, I didn't find that it saved me any time in the long run. How...

    Sony N00b questions - RX1 shutter priority mode and autofocus

    I suspect it has to do with the amount of available light. You lens aperture cannot open any wider to allow more light in, so if you set your shutter speed at 1/300s and the camera will automatically adjust aperture to balance your shutter speed selection. So the camera cannot get any wider...

    Mac Users who don't like the new Flickr format

    Sure, i've been using the beta for several weeks now. Here's the BBCode sharing instructions: Click on the share square. Click on the Thumbtack/Pushpin, select your dimensions and voila, BBCode. It doesn't say BBCode, but the pushpin implies BBCode.

    Why do you think this? The BBCode option is there in the new iteration, and is so widely used, it isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

    Canon Just for grins: Canon EOS-M speed tests, and sensor compare to EP1 and X100

    While I don't love the autofocus points of the 6D, i really enjoy making images with it. Best of all, it was less than half the cost of the latest and greatest and I have an ample amount of glass to put behind it. Putting the 40mm pancake lens on the 6D makes it a pretty serious compact :smile...

    "Taking photographs ruins the memory, research finds " ?

    OH WOW! People who were told to remember something remembered it? And people who were asked to photograph something didn't remember it as well?

    Feedback Does Flickr respect copyright of uploaded images?

    Sorry, my comment was much abbreviated. I should have said: People posting blackout images don't like the new interface and don't want it forced on them when the beta period is done. They hope that if a large enough group refrains from using Flickr, their collective one-day protest pleas will...

    Feedback Does Flickr respect copyright of uploaded images?

    They don't like the new interface and are convinced that if they don't use flickr for a day, flickr won't force it on them when the beta period is done.

    Feedback Does Flickr respect copyright of uploaded images?

    The affiliate links used on this board, strip the referring URL and show up as "unknown". So if you have ever posted a picture on any of Amin's forums (mu43, serious compacts, etc) anyone clicking through would show up as an "unknown" referer.

    Sony Sony RX100 - Pixel Peeping

    No, there is compression and other transcoding of images when posted to web. They will never look as good on flickr. Disappointing is a rather subjective word. Disappointing because you wanted it to have straight lines and details at 100%? Disappointing because of reffraction of light from...

    Feedback Does Flickr respect copyright of uploaded images?

    Flickr will not patrol use of your images, that burden is on you to be vigilant. They will respect and apply and display any copyright you apply to your images. That doesn't stop people from stealing the smaller images and re-purposing them. But flickr will not sell your copyrighted images...

    Things I have learned from shooting sports that might prove useful to photographers

    I think the preoccupation that I've also observed is in equipment capable of shooting wide open ... "give us a f1.2 prime lens pany" or "that oly tele zoom is too slow! f6!" etc. etc. etc.

    Things I have learned from shooting sports that might prove useful to photographers

    This is so key! I struggled with the Panasonic 100-300 on my oly when I first got it. I was convinced there was something wrong until i realized the slight blur was created by less than ideal lighting combined with my own movement not being fast enough for the 1/200 shutter speeds I was using.

    Panasonic GM1 - Pier in Fog

    I like the mood and lighting of this image. Thanks for sharing it. I don't know if it is the quality of your post processing program, or what's going on with the shadow quality in this image though. Was it underexposed and you brought it up in post production? That's a lot of noise and...

    Fuji X100 Raw Files and Raw Therapee

    I am not a Raw Therapee user, so take this as ideas only. It is very likely you have a Lumosity setting turned up too high either in your default profile, or applied at some point -- perhaps a profile on import? I doubt this program would just inject color into your pictures without a setting...

    The last warm evening of Autumn

    Temperatures will dip 20 degrees lower tomorrow. Here I pulled out my Jupiter.3 50mm f1.4. This is an interesting lens, super long focus, finnicky focus. But interesting results. Certainly a lens with character.

    Nikon Can't do it

    Hiding EXIF info - so irritated!

    Why would one hide EXIF data? Some people think it doesn't add to the purpose of sharing an image. Some people are paranoid that you might be able to find them with EXIF data. Or they simply want to irritate gear heads. In truth, EXIF data can protect you from copyright infringement -- when...

    iPad Air for photography - is it finally time to buy?
