    This year I’ve decided to attend more concerts. Live music is more personal and intimate and I feel like it supports the artists.

      One guy in front of me at the PHANTOGRAM concert last night (which was absolutely fantastic) recorded the whole thing on his phone. What a waste. The video couldn’t have been that high quality and the audio was almost certainly blown out.

          Awkwardly, I’m not able to import RAW files to iPhoto because my camera is too new. Bridge works fine.

            I’d like to see some system-level control for asking for permission to start up on login. OS X apps should be allowed to add themselves to the list without user consent.

              Chrome seems to have, at some point, decided it was important enough to add itself to my system’s login items. Not cool.

                we’ve been “minifying” js for over ten years. it may not be the most absurd thing in web dev today, but it’s got to be on the top ten list.

                  @ccw Put it in full screen and then pull it back out.

                    @michalfanta I heard first-party ones tend to sell better too. @remus

                      @michalfanta I think that’s what I need to focus on. I’m planning on renting lenses before buying them so I can tell if I need them in practice.
                      scottsmith
                        @michalfanta That’s what I should do, but there are more, faster crop factor lenses than FF ones—at least for E Mount.

                          @michalfanta Well I’m a complete amateur, so I’m not going to recoup my expenditures. Also, in my case, I may switch to a full-frame camera in less than five years, but that’s not a big issue.
                          scottsmith
                            @birchtree Agreed. And it seems that lenses bought new can have a higher resale value, if maintained properly, etc.

                              @michalfanta I’d imagine so. That also makes it a more risky sell though. :/

                                @birchtree So you’d recommend buying new?
                                scottsmith
                                  @zev Good to hear! Some sites said ~8-20% of original value.

                                    Do camera lenses typically have a high resale value? I’m wanting to only buy full-frame lenses for my a6000, but the selection isn’t as good as APS-C lenses. Would buying APS-C lenses and trading in for full-frame ones later be worth it?

                                      @bryanjclark I like to use Homer’s Illiad, but maybe I’m the only one?
