comment Can a laser pointer damage the sensor in a digital camera?
@gerlos those small red dot ones aren't even lasers, though they're marketed as such. They're just red LEDs with a plastic lens and aperture in front to focus the light.

@Noldor130884 tricky. It wouldn't be subject if you could prove to a court it predates the law, unless they make the law to take effect in the past, which would be an even more monumentally bad idea as the law itself.

comment dSLR holster on a belt OK?
@JDługosz I usually use the shoulder strap because the whole thing gets rather heavy otherwise.

@JDługosz hook the strap of the monopod to a ring on the bag using a carabiner.

@JDługosz the belt and shoulder strap that come with it make for harnessing.

@JDługosz I just hook it its carrying strap to one of the rings on the bag. Hardware stores and outdoors shops have things like carabiners en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quickdraw which are just perfect.

@JDługosz the Toploader doesn't attach to the S&F system. It does itself have 2 loops for attaching S&F lens pouches on the sides. Mine comes with a belt of its own (see store.lowepro.com/media/wysiwyg/lowepro/product/… ) and I think you can loop another belt between the mesh and the case proper.

@junkyardsparkle which will lead to those repositories changing their policies to disallow uploading of any images.

@MattGrum in theory. In practice all countries turn those into law near instantly, and most are quickly adopted by the EP and EC as regulations.

comment What is the impact of the EU discussion on restricting freedom of panorama?
@mattdm the ammendment however is crystal clear. It reads that ANY commercial use of ANY photograph of ANY item owned by someone not the photographer requires a permit from the owner of that item. So if you're taking a landscape photograph you need permission from the owners of the area, the owners of anything visible in the scene, etc. etc.

@mattdm the document doesn't really say anything. It's not the actual text of the new law, merely a document stating it's adoption.

comment Why do digital cameras not have an iso rating?
mind that these "ISO" settings are actually "ISO Equivalent" definitions created by each camera manufacturer to indicate which film rating their camera mimics when it shoots at a specific setting.
