The trolls post to literally waste time and stir the pot.  They enjoy watching a fire storm ensue with the established members and see how far things go.....
OP's total active time as a CR member is less than two minutes.
The guy never hung around or came back to see what responses were generated.

Wow.  The only thing worse than the OP's rant was the way he was treated.  Flat out insults directed towards him and even his photographs.

Well to be honest CR is not the most friendly photography forum on the Internets Tubes... especially for people just starting out in photography.

There is a lot of good information on CR, but there are some more prolific posters here that could use a human communication course (or ten).

Agree with both of you. There is definitely a herd mentality here that particularly feeds off of pointing out the (perceived) shortcomings of others. Lots of good info here if you can wade through the trash talk. I wish the mods would reel in those who constantly become aggressive and trashy here. Not ban them, just get the message through that this is supposed to be a constructive photography (canon or whatever) community first and foremost.

His one and only post on CR posted at 08:15:36.
He has less than two minutes total time between sign up, copy/paste his only post and never came back.
Identical post on the 23rd at

I dunno. What is a reasonable definition of a troll?

bracket the scene, let loose the tonemapping app of your choice and dial everything to 11!

My first entry is also my very first hdr shot, right after buying my shiny new 60d! Seemed like "instant art" to me back then :-p

There are some scenes, mostly junkyards, ruins and such that seem to do well as overcooked HDR subjects, I think you've got such a scene here.
Would you happen to have a larger version of this one to post? Please?

Dang! See my avatar? It's part of a local, what I call a modern ruin, construction never completed. The site sat abandoned for 15 years. It had a very stark and surreal beauty, I think a SciFi movie or two got filmed there.
Had juicy financial scandals, swindles and frauds associated with it.
Anyway, I shoulda wish I woulda thought of doing and then done done some overcooked HDR at that site, they've now torn it down, the opportunity is gone forever.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: iPhone 6 gets an Exmor
« on: September 29, 2014, 02:30:53 PM »
I found this the other day:

http://image-sensors-world.blogspot.com/2014/09/chipworks-iphone-6-plus-teardown-finds.html

Looks like even iPhone has moved to Exmor. Excerpt form Chipworks (their page doesn't seem to be loading at the moment):

Quote
"The iPhone 6 Plus iSight camera chip is housed in a camera module measuring 10.6 mm x 9.3 mm x 5.6 mm thick. Fabricated by Sony, the iSight camera chip is a stacked (Exmor RS), back-illuminated CMOS image sensor (CIS) featuring 1.5 µm generation pixels (introduced for the iPhone 5s). The die size is 4.8 mm x 6.1 mm (29.3 mm2). The phase pixel pairs have all been implemented in the green channel and cover the majority of the active pixel array."

"Our speculation of Sony winning the FaceTime sockets, though, turned out to be correct. We’ve just confirmed the iPhone 6 Plus FaceTime camera is a stacked Sony CIS and will provide more details in a future update."

Is this a Good Thing™ or a Bad Thing™?

Can Exmors withstand bending?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Why haven't you left canon?
« on: September 29, 2014, 12:10:50 PM »
I haven't left Canon partly because I just got here about a year and a half back.
I've worn out two Nikon DSLRs, hope to never own another Nikon anything.
 
I far prefer the handling, ergonomics, menus, file system and so forth of Nikons, BUT, when the cash register rings 'total', it's Canon that's tallied for it's build quality.


Sony, mirror less, not on my radar.

I am giving serious thought to the new Pentax 645Z, but that (if it happens) will be in addition to my Canon gear.

I may have to switch away from the Canon RC RT flash system, looking at Cactus right now.

In other words, I'm either not stupid enough to change or I'm too stupid to change, or both.

A year ago I bought a Canon 70D and installed the software.
A week ago I went to their website and downladed an update
for Digital Photo Professional (DPP) from 3.13.?? to 3.14.??.
Ran the update and the program stopped working. The error was
DPPDLL.dll not found. Following canon's support instructions
none of my Canon software, for either 320 Elph HS or 70D, work.
Nor can the original versions be re-installed. At the end of
this nightmare I was told to contact my computer manufacturer.
What does Dell have to do with Canon's software problems?

The details are at http://SwensonStudio.com/CanonSucks.htm

Here, let me google that for you.

Looks like camera shake. I cannot find any sharp detail in this photo anywhere.

Do people on websites just do this for hopeful popularity? Seriously, a review isn't a review if you are doing that and elaborating like 'Yea, i think this will be great because blah blah blah. It really is remarkable blah blah blah'. So it's basically a list of specs and dragging things out to sound sooooo sophisticated. Mislabeling for attention is really stupid.
Here's an example, 14:36 of Tony Northrup clickbait on youtube about the Pentax 645Z.
Don't click that link unless you really need to see a good example of a bad example.
The Z has popped up on my seriously contemplating radar, but boy and howdy it's a lot of money. Naturally I want to see every review I can find, I figured that with sand in my shoes, I'd even watch T.N..
He doesn't even have a camera. What of that review I did watch consists of his impressions of what the Z might be about. You get to see lots of TN in front of the video lens, live screen shots of a Z on his PC screen, watch as TN flips through a catalog.
The guy seems to really like talking in front of a camera.
This one is so much not about the Z but about TN, he didn't even include any shots of his wife.
If you look in the title of the TN video... it is a preview not a review.
Golly, thanks for pointing that out, I missed a p.

Ivan,
I really like this photo.
While obviously staged, what is staged tells me a story. Whether I've got the story right or not, I don't know, not sure I care.
The lighting, the costumes, the beautiful women but especially the body language and facial expressions speak to me the most.
---
Anyway, The story I see, a bride is marching through an honor guard of sisters and cousins. The look on the bride's face indicates she's emotionally overwhelmed by the ceremony, the future. What is she getting herself into? No matter, she's going through with it.
Facing us on camera left, this sister/cousin is just happy for her kin, anxious for the bride to pass her post, maybe an encouraging word will pass her lips.
Facing us next from camera left, she's at military attention, she's taking it all very seriously.
Facing us on camera right with hand on hip, she disapproves for one reason or another, maybe an issue about the groom, maybe she's upset she hasn't yet had her turn at matrimony, still, she's there and participating, they are all family after all.
 
Thanks Ivan,
Ron
 
ps..... grain, sharpness, dr, all irrelevant when an image is good enough to story tell.

Lenses / Re: Does it matter anymore who makes the sensors?
« on: September 22, 2014, 03:37:11 AM »
.....They all used the same "imaging device" if you will. It was called film. It could be made by one of several different manufacturers, Kodak, Agfa, Fuji, Ilford, etc., all with their own image characteristics. One film stock could be used to compare the quality of one lens vs another. One body vs another.....
And there's the flaw in your contention.
The camera manufacturers didn't use any imaging device at all, choice of imaging device (film) was left to the photographer from among the film manufacturers.
While Neuro likes to point out that a sensor does not make a camera, sensor characteristics have a very significant influence on the final output.

This picture really makes me wonder what he's thinking...
He's wondering what you're thinking is what I'm thinking.

Where the print will hang should influence your choice, I think both are just fine.
