Trump Is Upset This Infowars ‘Thinker’ Got Banned From Facebook. Here’s What He Thinks

President Trump spent Friday evening mad online. The primary target of his irritation: Facebook’s announcement this week that it was banning a handful of extremist figures deemed “dangerous” from all of its platforms — including Sandy Hook truther Alex Jones, white nationalist ex-congressional candidate Paul Nehlen, and Jones’ fellow Infowars conspiracy theorist Paul Joseph Watson. “Surprised to see Conservative thinkers like James Woods banned from Twitter, and Paul Watson banned from Facebook!...

Custom Modes to the Rescue!

I spent a few hours yesterday setting up the G9. I've never used Custom Modes on any camera before, but I think Custom Modes are going to be the key to comfortably using the G9 for me. What they mean is that I can have three starting points customized to the way I shoot that are always instantly recoverable, even if I've used one as a jumping-off point for further settings changes. That's the thing I hate the most about overly complicated cameras...I'll change settings on the fly as I'm working...

"Social media fails to follow traditional news outlets' stricter approach to portrait rights in Japan"

Here's an important new article by Patrick St. Michel at The Japan Times, 5/4/19. It should be added to the VAOJ "Shooting Culture in Japan" project which deals with the ethics of doing visual anthropology in Japan. Methods, ethics and privacy are constantly evolving and changing with new technology, thinking and practices. The discourse on these issues needs to continue. A man in Chiba Prefecture became irritated last month at how long it was taking for a barrier at a rail crossing to open. Los...

Thailand's king Maha Vajiralongkorn takes to the throne as snubbed sister falls into line

The new Thai King was doused with holy water before finally putting on a towering 7kg bejeweled gold crown as he ascended to the throne at the start of three days of pageantry steeped in ostentatious traditions. The series of ancient rites, last seen almost 70 years ago, began with a royal purification ceremony at the Grand Palace, where holy water was showered over king King Maha Vajiralongkorn's head before he took the seat of power sheltered by a 9-tiered umbrella that may only be used by...

5 Music Crowdfunding Myths – Busted! [Ariel Hyatt]

Crowdfunding has become a key tool in the DIY artist toolkit, but doing it successfully is harder than it looks.

Which Would Win?

When my son was little—like, younger than five—I used to get a certain question a lot: "who would win?" He might have two armies of little plastic soldiers all set up, or be staging fights with two of his "guys" (action figures). Or sometimes the question would be more theoretical. Who would win: Wolverine, or a lion? Santa Claus, or a zombie? Now, it appears to me that the Nikon Z7 seems to be emerging as the front-runner in the "most lustworthy" contest among all the new FFMs. So my question ...

The (Un)Balance of TOP

Just wanted to point out where everyone will see it that of the past 100 posts on TOP, going back to February 7th, only 18 have been about cameras. I counted back 100 (I actually went back through everything and made a checklist) so the percentage is easy to calculate. And those 18 included posts about smartphone cameras. Also, I counted "Mike's Seven Laws of Lenses" as a gear post even though it's pretty far from a typical gearhead type of article. I didn't count the off-topic posts but I would...
