answered Would the Tamron 18- 270 mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD make a good choice as my second lens?

comment What printer should I get to replace an epson r800?
@mattdm, I have indeed already gone with a decision, the canon 9500 mark II. It is a very specialized question, so if you can suggest a more generalized title, I'm all for it. But that list of requirements isn't so specialized, I think. I'd say that those are really the minimum for any photo printer.

comment TV show wants to use a photograph — what should I charge?
I'll ge the ball rolling with some maybe-not-pertinent questions. What kind of show is it, meaning what's their likely budget for this kind of thing? They're probably hoping to get away with something like $5, but if the show has 5 million viewers a week, they could probably part with more.

comment Is the smaller mass and bulk of Micro Four Thirds gear vs. APS-C DSLRs meaningful?
Am I right in assuming you mean the size difference of the gear itself? It seems that these initial answers assume you're talking about sensor size, not lugging-around weight.

comment Really? Why does a Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 cost almost $2,000?
Sure, the design is different-- but will the final results be that much different? Like I said, I'll wait until I see the reviews. So maybe the better comparison is with the Zeiss 35mm f/2? Sure, they're not considered to be in the same league (everyone loves a Zeiss!) but again, how much does the name cost?

comment Alternative media for printing photos
Is it bad that I immediately thought 'alternative media' instead of 'mediums'? Maybe too much Latin in high school...

comment How do I reduce noise, given that I have complete control over everything else?
Glad it can be of use to you. I figured it out when taking my own crystal photos.

comment Can I get high resolution photo from video?
The real meat of the post was about the Red camera. If the OP is really interested in pulling stills from video, they should spend the $17k or whatever it costs for a Red One and go that route. Not what I, personally, would do, but that's one way to get high res stills from video.

comment What are differences between Bayer mosaic and Foveon 3 layer sensor?
@jrista, now we definitely agree-- Sigma has not been very good in the execution of the chip. It is clear that they lack the UI engineering to make the dp series of cameras into the powerhouses that they should be on paper. I fantasize that they will open their firmware so that those of us with computer science chops can take a hack at it, like CHDK. I also fantasize that their SLR bodies will have Nikon and Canon mounts. While I'm at it, I also want a pony and world peace-- I think that all four desires are on the same likelihood of happening.

comment What are differences between Bayer mosaic and Foveon 3 layer sensor?
@jrista-- I couldn't disagree with you more about the look and feel of Foveon images. I have a dp2 and a nikon d300, and have produced 13x19 prints with both cameras (using full-chip images from both). First, no one can tell that they are taken at different resolutions, and second, people can definitely tell that they are different cameras. The saturations are different, the detail resolution is different-- the feel is just different. Some people prefer the d300, others the dp2-- my walls have become a bit of a Rorschach test for sensor style.

comment What do you learn in a BA in Photography that can't be self taught?
@jfd-- that's what I thought too.
