The dark spot in the top right looks like sensor dust.

Wilmark: "Camera specs are unimpressive for a device that is otherwise futuristic: a 5MP camera that can record 720p video puts Google Glass's camera capabilities far behind today's leading camera phones. "

LOL, Its a good thing I dont take camera advice from DP Review anymore. MP and HD recording on camera phones are meaningless - they almost all shoot worthless photos and videos, especially if i compare it with old DLSRS and video recorders with these specs from 5-10 yrs ago. NO matter how many camera phones you guys review, you guys are hilarious ever since youve been amazoned.

I think the point they're trying to make is that Glass is supposed to be 'the latest thing', yet it's not even up there with what cell phones of a couple years ago offer us, that is, a cell phone isn't that great, so anything not as good as a cell phone can't be much good either.

I'd need to see the lens line-up before I'd consider it. An 18-200mm f2 walk-around lens would make it worth it.

I don't understand what I'm looking at. Why is this in a sample gallery? What is it demonstrating, since it's obviously not a real world sample. Some snaps of some pigeons outside would be more useful.

mikusa: Don't flame me, but I use Windows Live Photo Gallery. There, I said it.

From there I can add tags, captions, geotags, face tags, and do minor tweaks, etc etc. Or I can right click an image and open it up in PS. I prefer to work directly with my files, rather than with a proprietary database that I might outgrow one day. I still store everything in folders, by month, and then subfolders if I want (2012-12/Christmas Dinner/, etc). I can edit my files in WLPG and it automatically creates a backup of the original if I ever want to go back.

I've dabbled in LR, and I really didn't like it. Perhaps I was using it wrong, but I just felt like I wasn't in touch with my actual files. I'm also just an amateur, so maybe it's different if you're handling 1000s of photos a week.

Anyone else going to join me out of the closet?

Yes, it does. Great response.

I've only been serious about my photography for about 18 months, so perhaps I haven't crossed a certain threshold in my workflow needs.

Back to my last comment.... if I do all more work in LR and one day decide to switch to a different program, will I lose all my tweaks and edits?

I think the thing I don't like about all my edits being hidden inside LR is that I like to be able to see all of 'my stuff' from the file explorer and any other program, etc.

Thanks.

Genuine questions:

How is searching through a LR database superior to searching through tags and captions in WLPG?

When I make image adjustments in LR (WB, vibrance, etc), where exactly are those changes? I can see the changes in LR, but I go back to my original image in its original folder, and nothing is changed. If I make a change in WLPG, my original file gets edited and updated, and that's what I want. I don't want a 3rd party program holding all my edits hostage, if that makes sense.

Willing to learn though....

Can we submit a photo taken with a point & shoot or does it have to be interchangeable lens?

keepreal: Sounds to me as though iFixit.com have taken apart Nikon. At the prices you pay for these high end cameras, you are entitled to expect a lot better than this.

Perhaps you should build your own....

Entitlement complex?

In reply to:

eddiephtgrphr: A bunch of wires attached to a few chips and covered with mostly plastic makes me wonder if it is worth more than two grand. I don't doubt the picture quality it produces but it should've been solid and robust enough if it's double the price of my D7000.

Whereas I look at a photo like that and am floored by the tech involved and consider myself lucky to be within reach of it financially. Although I live in Africa, so it's harder to forget how far we've come....
