The purpose was also to send a big "ENOUGH" following recurrent racism issues in France lately (as the country is more or less falling appart, it's very tempting to blame others).Good photographers and photojournalists are not in danger. Talented people will always exist. They have to adapt. It won't be easy, but they have to! Everybody loves nice images. Now everyone can capture decent images with good cameras and phones... If everyone had access to good violins and pianos, it would be more difficult to become a recognized musician. It's competition... Don't give up, photographers ! Newspapers will disappear, you won't ;-)
Poor review IMO.Almost everything has been described elsewhere for weeks or months.More importantly, there's not a single word about DYNAMIC RANGE, which was one of the most interesting aspect of X10, thanks to EXR.
There is major change that nobody seems to notice:The unlisted gallery URL does not exist anymore.Bottom line: you can send links for individual albums, but not an unlisted gallery. It was my favorite feature of Picasaweb ! Very unique.I totally hate Google +.Picasaweb was great, clean, simple and fast !G+ is BS, slow, uselessly complicated, and lacks that sharing option that was so great.Now my pictures are in iPhoto with PhotoStream galleries. It's not great, but I'm very disappointed with Google.
Compare carefully 2 images using the "Studio scene comparison (RAW)" page.Select RX1 vs. Canon Powershot G10, RAW, ISO 100.We are talking about a $2,800 2013 camera vs. a discontinued 2008 Powershot.Right, the RX1 is much better.But is it really worth the price tag?
PS: repeat with the G15Sigh... Sony knows marketing.
dgeugene1: The video was mostly out of focus. I don't think they really want anyone to know what they are doing.
"The video was mostly out of focus."Because they use Nikon lenses :-)
seilerbird666: It is strange to read all these moronic comments from people who are obviously do not know one thing about this mission. There are 17, count them, 17 cameras on board. So far only a few of the cameras are working. In a week or so when Curiosity has all her systems checked out and all her cameras working you are going to see some hi res images that will make you drool.
Is it really strange to read moronic comments on DPR?Morons have always existed. Now they have the opportunity to show their moronity to the world. Luckily, talented engineers and genius have also always existed. Images from NASA and others make me drool on a daily basis. Enjoy and ignore the morons...
nicoboston: I see orbs.The image is soft.White balance is not accurate.
I just want to let you know that, in my culture, we don't need to write "just kidding" at the end of a sentence to notify the readers that we are kidding...I am amazed by the images send by Curiosity, as I was amazed by Spirit, Opportunity and the others...It's pure magic to me, and NASA has always amazed me. Sometime I regret that I was not born earlier, just to see these guys running on the moon.Obviously some of you do not understand sarcasm. A while ago a guy in France said "You can laugh at everything, but not with everyone". This is truer than ever.
NASA, please continue to amaze me!
And Curiosity deserves a DPR Silver Award :-)))
I see orbs.The image is soft.White balance is not accurate.
Zerblatt: I¨m allergic to all Canon products...
I'm allergic to idiots.
The only question we should ask here is:Does it make orbs ???And if it does, will the DoD replace the 98 sensors to make sure that we get orb-free 1GP cat pictures ?
All the point of having a DSLR is the ability to put a decent piece of glass in front of it.This picture is scary:http://www.dpreview.com/previews/canon-eos-650d-rebel-t4i/images/frontpage.jpgSuch a big camera for such a small front element?!
Compare with the 50mm 50mm f/1.4:http://a.img-dpreview.com/reviews/CanonEOS30D/Images/frontview.jpg
Do we want to collect a lot of light?Or do we want to put a compact camera lens in front of a good DSLR ?
Matt1645f4: this is what the market has been screaming out for, good to see sony is listening. i just wish i knew it was coming out before purchasing the fuji x10.... (great camera and no orbs yet)
Seriously ?Download the original DSC01194.Look at the car grille, and the lights...Nice "orbs" plus PF !If this picture was from a X10, you would say it's a shame !
"Fujifilm promises 'definitive solution' to X10:March 12th, Fujifilm is going to release the X11 !Please note that they said said that they will announce a solution to X10 problem.They did not say that they will announce a solution for those who purchased the X10!
Jostian: I think Fuji's silence on this issue is abysmal! I'm shocked that a massive company like Fuji cannot just do a recall and fix the X10 (sure they lose a bit on money, a drop in the ocean to them) but they WILL earn back a little respect!! currently their silence is just dragging them further down the 'bad PR' blackhole, even loyal customers will think twice when the next cameras come out... I saved 3 months for the X10 but got me the P7100 instead, if Fuji had not been silent and come up with a plan (fixed sensor on new X10's & replacing the faulty sensors on those already purchased for e.g. I would have waited and got a new X10... but their silence and ignorance is astounding...
Who cares? Do you need DP Review to think? You cannot even have your own opinion?
See what the paperweight, the brick, the defective sensor can do:http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1012&message=40705161It's so good to see a post without ORBsessive Compulsive Disorder...
craigferguson: New firmware will not fix this camera,s white blobs. Time for Fugi to crap or get off the pot.
From your embryonic brain?
My favorite part is the comparison PowerShot G1X / Powershot G10, RAW and JPEG, at low iso.In bright light, the 4-year-old G10 is still my favorite Powershot. I'm not even talking about its iso 80.
"To make it worse the silkpix software is not compatible with the LION operating system so mac users would have to wait until third party software recognize this format."Interesting... You should try the version 184.108.40.206 which is on the CD ;-)Perfectly fine with Lion.
