    If you click on Unified View, the results do not include the FS section.

    But you skip over threads that don't interest you anyway, what's the problem with skipping FS threads?

    It does not matter what the forum is about, it is about how you can contribute or receive from the forum to make a closer picture to what you visualise it to be and better.

    The only issue I have is that in the forum, there are question with answer easy to find everywhere be it in the forum or a simple google search. But those lazy bumps just rather prefer to be spoonfed and post the question leading to repeated similiar useless threads. Some thread starter even complain about how answer are given like spoiled brats.

    I wasn't aware that my responses were subject to your assessment.

    Well germans do make nice lenses, combine that with advanced alien technology, and a production facility where you have 5/6 less gravity and your bound to have a awesome lens.

    The problem with alien lens designs is that their visible spectrum is significantly different from ours, so
    alien lenses, although of superb quality, are totally opaque to humans (and our film).

    This requires extremely long exposures.

    The problem is it is full of people who dont make pictures. A tiny minority use their LF cameras let alone share the results.

    Along the same lines, there are excellent photographers who don't have the self confidence to post a photo once in a while because they don't think it's good enough, or someone posts a photo which receives mixed comments, and consequently fails to understand they are photographers for themself and not the Internet. There was a guy a couple years ago putting up stunningly beautiful 5x7 simple landscapes of the canadian plains/mountains with awesome skys. Many many enjoyed then, one person said they were boring, and the image stream dried right up.
