Got an interesting question about 'how do you cope with all the angry comments, rude people and negativity from people watching the channel who claim to know more than you?

Good question - but it really doesn't phase me. Ever been on a bus and a crazy person starts screaming randomly? Does it ruin your day, or do you just ignore them and move on?

Likewise - no doubt there are LOTS of people who don't agree with me on every point. There must be! And many may be very informed, even experts. But if you don't have people skills, tact and a friendly outlook - you will struggle in any field.

So keep looking forward, stay friendly, respect people, and be honest to yourself and others - even if people don't agree with your POV always, at least they will respect your authenticity.

Agreed! "Keep looking forward, stay friendly, respect people, and be honest to yourself and others - even if people don't agree with your POV always, at least they will respect your authenticity" that's my motto too. Need to add it under 'Company philosophy' on my consultancy page :D Thanks +Matt Granger!

Know your rights shooting on the street - do you need a release? Can you sell the shot? And what is 'Commercial Use'?? "Commerical use" - YOUR Public Photography rights

Just updating my own comment, you are correct about kids, I have looked into it an it was because it was n private  (or rented) property, the school sport games, hence their policy.

I have some CC Attribution - Non-Commercial out there, lets say they are on flickr for this, can you make a note that I consider commercial any thing that produces revenue? eg, you take my pic and use it on a page with absence or where they are an affiliate for selling the new amazing shampoo that makes you quit smoking and loose weight !!!

Matt, you're never going to make a singer, but the intro stuff is always a laugh. Loved the outro stuff there too.

Love to hear your thoughts - and PLEASE - just saying 'its overpriced' or 'you can build a PC for much less' is no help. Examples please!

I use one of these in the office for a year or so and I came to the conclusion that it's form factor is not very practical. A cylinder is not very good when it comes to the various mounts like USB and others. I would not buy one for myself unless I needed it's extreme power.

As i have always thought and said, it is not a matter of which is better, Nikon or Canon, but truly a matter of which brand you started with. Each of the brands will provide you with a spectacular image, if you know how to properly use the camera. Because as we all know there is so much more to capturing an image than just depressing the shutter button. And when I say it is a matter of which brand you started with is because of the financial investment that goes along with adding to your lens collection. Once you start buying additional lenses for the specific Canon EF or EFS mount it is difficult to go to a NIkon body that will not work with the lenses you have already invested in. As you said, since money doesn't grow on trees, for a lot of users it is the financial aspect that keeps them loyal to the brand they started with. I look forward to your thoughts on the Canon, but I will forewarn you having used both Nikon and Canon, from the lens focusing ring to the body buttons, almost everything other than the on off switch are opposite to each other!
