Sigma is going to pay Nikon 14.5 Million for patent infringement! This is related to a a “complaint” I received from Craig this week
I’m registering a complaint with the camera manufactures: Why are you using different proprietary terminology for the same feature? Image Stabilization is a great example: Canon, IS (Image Stabilization); Nikon, VR (Vibration Reduction); Tamron, VC (Vibration Compensation); Olympus, IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization); Sony, OSS (Optical SteadyShot) and SSS (Super Steady Shot); Panasonic and Leica, OIS (Optical Image Stabilization); Sigma, OS (Optical Stabilization); Pentax, SR (Shake Reduction); Nokia, PV (PureView); HTC, UP (UltraPixel). Are manufactures just trying to make it more difficult for entry-level photographers, or any photographer for that matter? What is the thinking around this?

54:55 Reader Question – Using an external flash outside – with nothing to bounce the light how do you get good flash exposure?
How do I use my on camera speedlite when I there’s nothing to bounce the flash off?
I’m new to dslr’s and recently purchased a Canon 430exii flash to supplement my Canon SL1. I was quickly and easily able to capture great pictures indoors by bouncing the flash and using a small stofen diffuser. However, I’m lost when I don’t have something to bounce the flash off and end up aiming the flash directly at my subject and casting some hard heavy shadows. I try to reduce this by dialing the FEC down, but obviously the image gets dark. I most recently encountered this problem when trying to use fill flash on my wife with a sunset in the background. Any tips or recommended diffusers? Thanks
