Re: General photography thread [img heavy]

While I was having some fun, and got this image, which I am not really thrilled or disappointed with, there is a sequence which will be accompanied by my thoughts as I took the image. https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5602/14957685274_1130a98250_c.jpg Big Waves Hilo (4 of 4) by the3mrys , on Flickr So...

That's a great sunset, Danny. My recent sunset shots weren't nearly so impressive.

Re: Camping / Hiking :

for the hiking campers: how heavy are your packs typically? I'd think everything you purchased would be determined by performance vs weight. tent, sleeping bag and gear could get heavy for long hikes without being very careful about which product you chose.

Nice shots Danny. What hardware are/were you using?

Thanks. I sold my 6D a couple months ago and upgraded to the 5D IV. Have a few nice lenses.

They are no longer selling the product - again. That didn't last long.

Re: Dell 4K oled monitor cancelled

I can't read French but hopefully it just means that specific model is cancelled and there will be something else to take its place.  Chrome?   Not a lot of detail in the article but it does sound like they talked to Dell and got the news from them. Seems like panel issues.  Article is not clear wh...

Re: DOOOOOOM

Back on subject, the crashes are really annoying me. Lazarus Labs is the worst offender so far. Under normal play it doesn't bother me that much, since I can restart the game and resume from the checkpoint. But when replaying a level (I missed a secret :( ) a game crash means you have to start back...

Re: Are 144hz G-sync displays worth it?

I'm still confused why Freesync got brought up. Linux + AMD isn't even a discussion. Freesync is also not a discussion if you want a guaranteed 30Hz floor, windowed mode, borderless windowed mode, or even Rec. 2020 support (Freesync doesn't support HDR). But hey, let's pretend de jure standards are...

I'm still pretty sure iD hasn't known what the hell it was doing since Doom 2. I actually liked Rage, despite its quirks, but everything else they've done... I enjoyed Rage also. It wasn't the greatest game ever but was definitely fun. Doom is MORE fun than Rage.. to me. So far. I have only gotten ...

Re: DOOOOOOM

The gamplay is nothing like the original Dooms expect IP content. It is just another uninspired shooter that tries to play the nostalgic card on old fans but it is actually catered towards younger COD-BF4 types (regenerating/easy health, tons of ammo, trigger-fingering/spray and pray, forced action...
