BurkPhoto: The media of speech and photographs can go together, but the images MUST expand on the text, or vice versa. They must be in sync, conceptually. In this speech/video, the photographer speaks around the images, not to them, for them, or with them.

She comes off as just another artsy liberal with a cause to promote for those who pay her way.

This should be an object lesson to just shut up and let the images speak for themselves! Maybe she had to speak because the images are not that compelling?

Tell us how you would have shot it.

I just saw a photographer using something that looks like one of these, he/she was using it during a CNN live newsbreak in Germany of this freed prisoner. I don't think I'll get one , price too high.

A few will buy them. but I still see the big brains slapping themselves on the back saying" digi - tail, what is digi-tail?" laughing in the board room. next year they'll set up a committee to find out what is this internet thing they keep hearing about.

why,why,why??? who at Kodak is making these decisions? sure a few will be sold. I can develop & print b/w , color film & e-6 slide film, do I want to return to it?? BIG no. They dropped the ball with digital......now they are making another stupid decision. when I first saw the headline I thought they were making a digital camera which I would have considered. good luck 1965.

joechan32: I have another idea: just have a camera look alike that clicks but does nothing. Shutterbugs can click all day long and boast about how great a shot they would have taken. Already have a prototype (my 3-year old's camera). Saves us time, energy, resources & money. Small, light, cheap & pocket-able.

Loove that idea

WordsOfFarewell: Even as a professional landscape-photographer I wouldn't need more than 50Mps so I wonder how affordable these will be and if there will ever be a consumer market for this in the next 5-10 years. Simply because no one who doesn't shoot advertisement only would need it in any way but the files need a computer with 128GB RAM more and about 20gbs per psb. if you have some image layering.

But good to know they're wasting their money on stuff like that. Seems like they're not really learning what the market needs. No wonder Canikon are losing market share to Sony (and hopefully soon Pentax)

Agreed.

In reply to:

wedel: Hey there! I need your guys advice. My Sony NEX-7 with a 18-200 got just stolen. I'm a travel photographer, means most of my pics cover landscapes, people, wildlife and sometimes sports. My preferences lay on a single lense with a big range, for that I was thinking about the Tamron 16-300 in combination with the here discussed EOS 70D. Due to the fact of being in Costa Rica, my chances to buy the lense are pretty small. Any alternatives that are more comon? Thanks a lot in advance.

I used a Tamron 28-300mm as my work horse lens on one of my cameras just to avoid changing lens constantly. IQ was good.

Why a '" guaranteed replacement in 48 hours in the event a card fails " what happens after hour 49? seems too short of a plan.

munro harrap: So what if they are posed? Can YOU get a caterpillar to pose, or an insect to fly carrying an umbrella? Are they not more interesting than the majority of posed people pics posted online? Of course they are. Because at least they are carefully and imaginatively done!! Were that wedding photos were such fun.
I want to know HOW, but he might not tell you- after all his work is worth money now, so would you?
Years, years ago, when I was still at college I worked a week in a Chelsea still photographers studio, in the days of large format film, before computers and software for photos existed to have us jump to possibly wrong conclusions.

He showed me some commercial work, one showed a party in four around a table , enjoying a certain beverage. But they were INSIDE a glass of said beverage. It was completely convincing, you felt like cheering!

As a hardened reportage photographer I am still thrilled- here too, you cynics

Agreed.

chooflaki: If he was shot it must have been from behind. Being shot by a high powered rifle will cause the victim to fall in the direction to where the shot was coming from. IMO I believe the photo is genuine.

I agree, its real just because its a grab shot taken at a time when he could not stand & was hoping to get something.at a fatal explosion once I had to set my wide angle lens & camera on auto( yes ! gasp, horror), with the camera hanging from my neck to get a shot(s) because a group of firemen did not want photos taken, once I got back to the paper & out of the darkroom I found a few shots that were usable. side note I friend in California. caught a glimpse of me on CNN. the armchair photographers can call the shot as they wish but luck does factor in in more than you think.

I never tried their film, I used Tri-X 400 & luv to print on Kodabrome II RC when I had my B/W darkroom.

On article Adobe releases subscription-only Photoshop CC (397 comments in total)
In reply to:

Artistico: I will go against the general consensus and say that I think the subscription model might even reduce the number of pirated versions in use as it makes the initial cost of starting out using Adobe products so much more affordable when you spread the cost over time. I'm not saying it necessarily is cheaper in the long run, but it's more convenient for many, myself included.

Also, a lot of the people commenting don't seem to know anything about what the Creative Cloud is, how much it costs, and nor do they realise if and to what extent it affects them. They just seem to be against it on principle without even having defined the principle to start with. Please read up on it and understand what it is all about before commenting (as if that is ever going to happen).

I agree with Rob, they could print hard copy disks on demand & ship when ordered, i.e. print about 1,000 copies to lessen warehousing, then when that supply reaches,say,250 copies left, print to replenish the 1,000 its about choice.

Adobe should prorate for outages, will they be forgiving if for whatever reason your payment is late?

Wait until the first CC outage occurs at a critical time when you need it, it may last 30min.,3hrs or longer, it will not happen often, but will they refund your money on a prorated basis for your loss of productivity time? nope.
