What a crock of s**t. I checked out when you got through 13 minutes of ISO demos without mentioning pixel density or disclosing the pixel counts of the sensors you used in your demo. Your equation makes ZERO logical sense if it doesn't account for pixel density.

Put it another way -- compare the low light performance of the Sony A7s (12 MP) to the A7r (36 MP). The sensors are the exact same size, but the A7r is MUCH noisier because the photosites are (roughly) 70% smaller.

Similarly, a 4 MP MFT sensor will likely have much better high ISO performance than, say, a 24 MP FF sensor. So that "square of the crop factor" nonsense you invented is pointless.

This is really awesome perspective. Get ready to scroll. +Ethan Siegel, have you seen this?
It would take about seven months to travel this distance in a spaceship. Better be some good in-flight entertainment. In case you're wondering, you'd need about 2000 feature-length movies to occupy that many waking hours. Sit back and relax. Jupiter is more than 3 times as far as we just ...

Wow... thanks for sharing that. I think it took me about 10 minutes to get through that whole thing. The distance between Uranus and Neptune seemed the longest for some reason.

...and the creepy new iPhone 6 features on his main website (joshworth.com) were very amusing!

I'm part of a virtual camera club of photographers holding each other accountable for a 365 this year. It's http://365infocus.com/. Most of the members are out of the pacific northwest, but we've got a smattering of people in the midwest, Europe, and even one about to be deployed on a Navy ship.
If you come to the South Island of New Zealand, please don't fly from Christchurch to Queenstown — drive!

I'd be fine with this if Google hadn't also turned off the ability to install extensions from outside the Web Store.

But the combination of those two decisions means that Chrome is now just as locked down as iOS, and as a Chromebook owner, that has drastically reduced the value of the device I paid for.

Google, please reconsider: Allow users to install their own extensions without forcing them to run unstable code from the Dev channel. It's OK if you put it behind all sorts of warning signs, but don't lock us out completely.

You just made Chromebooks into devices that get WORSE with time, not better. Please stop.

This does not require running Dev channel. Rather, it requires enabling the developer MODE, available in chrome://extensions/. One check box, and you are good to go.

A perfectly serviceable high-end steakhouse. Expertly-prepared and completely unimaginative. If you're looking for that kind of classic throwback dining experience, they deliver.

Wonderful food with fabulous and knowledgeable service. The rabbit pappardelle pasta was a standout. Sit outside if Mother Nature is cooperating.

Great happy hour menu, killer fish & chips, and a rooftop patio? Can't ask for anything more!

Good, creative burgers -- worth the stop if you can beat the rush. Are the burgers so amazing that they justify the 40-minute wait on the sidewalk? Probably not. The menu doesn't mention it, but you can order a 50/50 split on the fry basket -- both the sweet potato and truffle fries were great.
