On Adobe now offers Photoshop and Lightroom for everyone news story (625 comments in total)

Island Golfer: Gee, isn't this what companies try when no one is interested in buying the original deal? Now, "everyone" can have the deal that no one wants. Wanna bet that, still, no one buys into this?

Exactly. After years of forking over lots of moola on upgrades I'm through with Adobe.

On 5 photography apps to download to your new iPad post (157 comments in total)

Perfectly Clear and Photo FX Ultra are awesome image editors in a traditional sense. I rarely use the scratch, retro, light leak filters on any of the apps mentioned. Instant 'art' is just too mindless. Instaflash used to be a good one step lighting adjustment before they broadened it out to become another Snapseed. Bummer there.

All your selections are solid, at least the ones I use: Photogene, Snapseed, adobe Touch.

On Accessory review: Shuttr remote image capture post (6 comments in total)

I believe your report of two side power switches is incorrect. One side switch enables your choice of iOS or Android device. The other (which protrudes from the case) is a power switch. You may be confusing the need to wake it up after its gone dormant before using again, but that's done with the shutter button not a side switch. There is only one power switch.

I received mine yesterday. That's the way it works anyway.

Bummer to learn you can't replace battery. Bet we could hack that.

On How many megapixels do you need? post (220 comments in total)

Guess I'll ask the Hawaii State Art Museum (HISAM) to return my
large format (24"x36") LG flip phone inkjet print they purchased in 2007. Sounds like its supposed to be impossible to make a commercially viable product with it, let alone one of today's smart phones.

On Photo contest asks for your night shots post (2 comments in total)

Bummer you have to buy ProCamera to enter.

Direct link | Posted on Sep 8, 2013 at 12:38 UTC as 4th comment

Somewhat of a rip off in that you can ONLY enter through the Pro Camera app. That costs $4.99. It's misleading to suggest that there is no entry fee. There are plenty of online exhibition entry robots like CafePress that could have been used. If this is just a sales promo by Pro Camera I wish they'd be honest enough to simply say so.

On Is Sony making a sensor/lens combo for smartphones? post (110 comments in total)

Why bother? Almost as big as a Fuji x100s. As soon as its wifi enabled (soon I'd guess), you'd be better off carrying that around.

Just the start. Soon Nikon and everyone else will offer DSLR with wifi and apps. If I can download a nifty photo app for my $200 iPhone, what can't I for my $2000 DSLR? Only logical that this is where its all headed.

I want to thank Kendall below for his critique of these lenses compared to Oloclip. As a serious iPhone shooter myself, I'd like to see an objective study with images comparing Schneider optics, Olloclip and the magnetic Amazon.com lenses. It's time to start reviewing these products seriously and not simply as cute accessories for a cellphone.

You all need to unclench your buttocks a little. This is a good idea and would work in a pinch with any phone. There are a number of 360* pano rotators, egg timers, etc. that this would work great with. Lighten up!

Hulamike: You all sound like a bunch of geriatric gear freaks. I suppose you think your cookie-cutter, Hipstamatic, bleached, scratched, vignetted, rayed, look alike canned "Art" is more appropriate. Right!

This guys idea is awesome! His GF is awesome! His editing and color is awesome. The whole thing is fun and interesting. Really, its time for some of you to get a clue, broaden your perspective maybe, unclench those buttocks.

Howard, I actually agree with you but there is a uniqueness exhibited in this work that is quite different from the one button wonder shots unthinking Instagrammers make; namely concept and execution. I see a variety and subtlety in approach here. Makes for good imagery. Isn't that what photography's all about? Image? Besides, this isn't the guys pro commercial work, just playfulness highlighting a global career (jealous) and a very sexy girlfriend. Woof!

On Nikon posts sample images from new D7100 news story (95 comments in total)

But no fleshtone or high DR shots. Once again Nikon shows its engineering roots, not its photographic.

No way to slide my Olliclip lenses on. Bummer, I like the idea of adding LED lighting.

Re: Tessl8d:
Please read your first sentence again. Then ask yourself what exactly constitutes grounds for commercialism in photography. You sound hypocritical at best.

So far everyone is missing the point. The bride thinks you're ripping her off because most young people today don't see anything special about photography. It's something "everyone" does with their cellphones all the time. There's a new paradigm in place and professional wedding photographers are trying to ignor the obvious. It will only get worse as the immediacy of uploading to social media continues to trump tradition thereby eroding whatever special place wedding photography once inhabited.

abi170845: I don't understand it, a wedding is a very very special occasion, and newly weds want a bargain? It's like everybody want to be photographed for cheap or free. It is a business just like any other.

Find a cheap one then, even a high school student with a DSLR can photograph you. You get what you pay for.
