A good photograph displays what you saw.A superior one displays what you felt.
PhotoKhan: Mr. Hoffman managed to write an article where the deductible sub-text is actually more prominent than the direct-read text.
It's almost hypnotic...Witnessing "eco-cult-systems" apostles seeing their temples implode, while trying to "philosoph" about it all.
I meant "deducible", not "deductible".
Mr. Hoffman managed to write an article where the deductible sub-text is actually more prominent than the direct-read text.
Now, this is innovation!(...me says while popping my 64GB MicroSD + 128GB flash drive into my 32Gb Galaxy 7.7 ...dum, dee, dum, dee, dum dum...)PK
Using it now. Just great.
Really...!?...You guys hop in bed with a "closed garden" marketing approach and then you resent Apple's actions to control what you see, think or buy...Really...!?
Hijacks the hotshoe, awkward size, $299...I don't think it's a winner, no.Anyway, this is all moot now as CameraMator (...and others...) have only a small opportunity window to benefit from. The Canon 6D has opened a door that will never close again.
There's a big confusion in this article, that will not help first time users of LR.
Folder structiring is folder structuring and metadata is metadata.
They can co-exist and certainly have intrinsic advantages and limitations but they don't replace each other. I don't know of any photographer who simply dumps all his files a single folder and then relies simply on metadata keywording.
LR, for one, was not conceptualized that way. That's why it has a "Library" module with a left panel displaying the folder structure for the photos imported into the catalog being used.
Ahhh...If only I could alternatively focus, today, on the Times Square background billboard over the sailor's shoulders in that V-J day photo by Alfred Eisenstaedt...How important would that photo THEN be...
The question "You are a world-famous photographer. Why do you blog?" seems like the set-up for an All Jaffee's "Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions" bit. Today's "journalists"...Who are these people?
So, they actually parody lazy photography done with "instant" filters by writing lazy comedy rhymes dubbed over music made by someone else? Instahumor vs. Instagram...Wow!...talk about palimpsest irony.
windmillgolfer: I run an economy Android phone. It does have a good span of functionality but is frustratingly slow and inconsistent. Making an actual call is a trial. But, it is cheap. I also have an iPad 3, where everything works well, that's ignoring the complete mess on Apple Maps that came with IOS6. If Apple had any ball$, they'd reinstate Google maps! However, fact is, the iPhone is easy to use, fast and most users will easily make full use of the functionality when they would struggle with Android.
Hmmm...I'll go and buy a cheap iOs phone to compare, just to be fair...Oh!...Wait...There's none....bummer...
Well, I'll get my double SIM Android Samsung then and test it against a double SIM iPhone...Oh!...Wait...I can't do that...double bummer...
The iPhone compares well to top-of-the-line Android phones. In fact, it somehow tops them by offering a more integrated approach.
...but, If one does not have the requirements Apple has stuffed into their "one solution fits all" offering, one is SOL.
On the other hand, Android offers a plethora of solutions for each individual requirement and, mostly important, individual budget.
That's why Android is taking the global smartphone market by storm, no matter how many manipulative articles like this are planted.
(The Galaxy SIII has sold 30 million units since it's launch but their owners must have a serious beef with Flickr, according to the chart, they don't use the site...Good grief, it's so obvious, it's almost sad...)
Will.i.am really knows what iPhotographers need...it will be an iSuccess.
It is utterly funny seeing how you guys are naively being sucked in into commenting what is pure propaganda, in the most perfect ex-soviet style...Cupertino is the motherland of all tricks, both legal and communicational.
It does not really matter how many pieces of selected "information" are planted this way. For anyone with a bit of analytic common sense what is actually happening is quite clear.
(...so pretty, the chart, with all those colors...)
PS: Watch out, SRT201...keep posting along those lines and you'll be paid a visit by the men in black with an apple tattooed on their biceps...Even I, on another continent, don't feel that safe. :)
Cane: So if you are outside and don't have wifi, you are stuck using the cable only, like it's 1980?
Is the dongle Wi-Fi enabled?Does it "co-connects in" to a common Wi-Fi network for the OTA functionalities?What are the OTA functionalities?What happens when an Wi-Fi network is not available?Can the portable device hot-spot capabilities be used?...If so, how?A mention is made to Bluetooth...Is it the primary wireless connection...?... Is it the secondary?...Is the changeover automatic when the Wi-Fi connection drops?
...Because, if it is mainly a fancy, multi-function cable release I already have an Android one. One that, although with less release functionalities, lets me control all functions in my 1DMKIV including the ever-so-important "live view" one.
It's an app called "DSLR Controller".
(It cost me 7,99 and uses the built-in USB OTG capabilities in my Galaxy 7.7, with a standard cable)
RButler, things are not that simple, because of how the software must accommodate the remote portable device being the connecting item or the host item in a Wi-fi network.
Check out Mophotos photo transfer implementation vs. the Eye-Fi's app when using a Eye-fi card, for instance: While the MoPhotos solution is based in the hot-spot functionality of most devices, the Eye-Fi app requires the card to be reconfigured in a PC to, precisely, allow the "embedded" Wi-Fi modem to be converted from "peer" to "hot spot host" mode, before Eye-Fi's "Direct Mode" can be used.
I wish Triggertrap was more clear in their site on the OTA capabilities of their Android solution. There's no clear explanation of the functionalities, with visitors being re-directed to the Owner's Manual only to find out there is none for the Android version.
jtan163: WTF does " global shipments of digital cameras among Japanese consumers are down 42 percent from last year" mean.
Exports of digital cameras to Japanese consumers out side of Japan?
Cameras exported from every where in the globe to Japanase consumers (presumably in Japan?).
Ah among Japanese consumers....So digital cameras that are being exported (globally) form one Japanese consumer to another. Regardless of location? Or is one Japanese consumer always in Japan?
Clear as mud.Well done Agence-France/Yahoo.
Lol...my thoughts, precisely.Welcome to the "cellphone logics world" - Idiocy instantly propagated by technology....I supposed we could call InstantNews(tm).
Perfect...Nothing could illustrate better what the demographics target are for cellphone photography than this product and the accompanying video. Wait until all BFFs see this. OMG!Just perfect.
Hmmm...I got a feeling...
It's amazing the effort the goes into affirming any single new communication medium into the "fine arts" sphere...I'll bet it is because the hardly felt need to convey meaningful messages ...not!...more like "ta-tching!"...
