  1. When photographing aquariums flashes are extremely important unless the tank is a reef with tons of light. The trick is to put the flashes on top of the tank so they are firing from where the light comes from naturally. I have used three YN 560 IV flashes when photographing freshwater fish. I put two of them to light the area I want the fish to be in the photograph and the third one to light the background.

  2. Seems my picture never got imported. Should have been inte first import.. :/ Was there some problem with the import as the link was active a litle earlier this time?

  3. This live show was lovely. The number of wonderful shots this time was overwhelming! And inspiring. I actually really liked the "flatness" of Sean Kim's landscape at 23:02 ; it looks like one of my Chinese great grandmother's landscape paintings, kind of moody and understated.

  4. At about 38:45 You were asked Nikon 200-500 vs Tamron 150-600 on a D500. Tony answered he had some issues when testing the Tamron 150-600. I saw your review of the Tamron 150-600 (first generation). Have you used the G2 version? I use the Tamron 150-600 G2 very regularly for action sports and dog action field activities like Herding Trials, lure coursing, and CATs. On the D750 it is awesome. Cost me around $1300 and was a great value. I also use it on the D500, and have had great results. I shoot it hand held, not on a monopod. If you compare the Nikon 200-500 to Tamron, please use the G2 version. Thanks

  5. About the whole PNG or other new formats in cameras… I actually know a bit about this. I work at one of the companies that developed the JPEG-2000 format (completely different from the JPEG cameras use). At the time, we were sure that this format would take over everything. We pitched this format to various different camera and imaging companies, and they all had one thing to say: "we use very specialized hardware". Basically, cameras do not have general purpose processors (x86, arm, etc.) that implement everything in software, like computers and smartphones do. Instead, they use very specialized processors along with dedicated hardware image and video codecs. (Fun fact, this is also the reason why third-party apps on cameras is much harder than it sounds, and partially why the menus suck.) So while there are better image formats than JPEG out there, it's not as easy as adding a bit of extra code to the camera. Adding a new format would require creating new specialized hardware, often from scratch, which is a really really big cost in terms of R&D. And since no one will ever say "I must buy this camera because it shoots in <insert format here>", and the vast majority of high-value customers will still just shoot RAW anyway, that is not a cost that is ever justified.

  6. The comments about sharpness, contrast and micro contrast are ridiculous. A high contrast image would be one with dramatic darks and lights. This could be an image with literally just white and black and no shading. It could also be sharp if it has very small detail but it could have no micro contrast which is fine tonal changes. I have lots of old lenses that are low contrast, some are even not very sharp but often they have very good micro contrast. Overall lower contrast can certainly be boosted in post but if fine shading detail is not there, You can't fix that. It is the main thing that gives three dimensionality. This is why I love a lot of the really old lenses with lower element count. They have good 3D depth.

  7. Iv2e read some articles on the "ISOlessness" of the D7000 and up, I assume. Still not understanding what that means. Something to do with analog and digital multiplication of the signals beyind ISO 800?
    Your other Youtube presentations are very understandable so maybe YOU could shed some light in this topic.
