  1. Love this, beautiful.
  2. Smart phones are very handy tools, I can take a photo at work and WhatsApp to client in seconds, scan a document, convert to pdf format and mail to a client in under a minute. BUT, you do not replace them because the new one is so much better lately, they just don't last in dayly use for more than 30 months, battery goes and need more than one charge a day, it becomes slower with firmware upgrades (I suspect on purpose to entice users to buy a newer phone 😉) For me it's a handy working tool, will hardly ever use it to take serious photos, it's just too challenged when conditions is not perfect, like it cannot handle even basic back lighting. But as a business tool it has taken way more time away from my laptop than from my dslr.
  3. It's the time of the year, saw this same enquiry on a different non-photographic forum yesterday.
  4. My favorite, stunning.
  5. I Looked at the photo on my Samsung Note6 the first time, laptop the second time. Going back to the Note, its still unsharp, but when you click up its fine.
  6. Having a look on my laptop now, he sure looks much better.
  7. Hi Mike, somehow the cat is not as sharp as the surroundings, was it moving?
  8. A good Ranger is worth their weight in gold, as demonstrated here, excellent photo.
  9. That is why buying a good condition used vehicle is my preferred way of buying vehicles. Just bought a low km one owner Discovery 4 for the same money you would pay for a new Corolla with aircon and electric windows, but you get three times the car that can go anywhere, in luxury. Just budget for the running costs, it will be more than a Corolla :-)
  10. Great! It was the right thing to do. May Fotozones also bless and reward your effort.
  11. No problem Mike. Regards Fanie
  12. I beg to differ on that one, without Canon and Nikon there, not many people will go, I wonder if the show would be viable at all.
  13. My kid, 3rd year engineering student, download the lecturers class notes from the intranet to his IPad, then takes notes on the IPad alongside those of the lecturer, and take a picture of the blackboard if required and this is all compiled in a single document, downloaded to his laptop at home for future reference. Completely different from how we did it in the 70's and 80's :-)
  14. Hopefully that day will never come.
  15. You could get all that from players in that segment of the market, why would you want a Nikon specifically that can do that? Do you feel they would be better at that technology than the existing crowd? What baffles me is they have queue of people lining up for a D400 and it's not coming, the only competition there is Canon's 7D. I would buy one if they ever bothered to make it.
