maxnimo: To be fair, there's no way to tell the size of this camera from those images. For all we know, that lens could be 6 inches in diameter and extend 18 inches.

Unless it's hotshoe version 2.0, which is twice the size and ready for a new generation of super-flash.

06m1r3m86: If it was on PC I'd be interested, and even more interested if it was coming to Linux. I would love to have a great, professional photo editor on Linux, even if it's not FOSS. GIMP is great, but it would be so much better if there was a company that could back and develop it with a consistent vision and funding.

This on the other hand, it will be a while before this is competitive with Photoshop on the high end or GIMP on the low/free end.

Gimp is supposed to be very powerful, but did they ever fix the user interface, or is it still horrible?

Unfortunately, when Corel acquired Paintshop Pro they changed everything. They turned a clean, simple, virtually perfect user interface into a total monstrosity. To still call it Paintshop Pro is an insult to all the past artists.

maxnimo: I had a major problem with the Fuji Raw File Converter software - it won't let me view my custom-made test pattern image on screen, making it impossible for me to calibrate the image I see in their software. Apparently only Fuji-created photos are allowed for display.

Since I have no frame of reference for proper color/brightness/grayscale, this makes the Fuji Raw function pretty much useless for me.

No, never tried hacking any headers. Do you mean altering EXIF data on an image file?

The "other" one hasn't even been updated to 64 bits - you see, it was killed and left for dead long ago. So if I ever need to go to 64-bits or HDR there's no alternative, viable option for me.

I still have a working 10 year old Canon DSLR with one lens still functioning that takes nice photos, but in the past 12 months I've been using a Fuji-X system 99% of the time.

Yes, there are trillions of photo editing apps out there, but if you need a serious tool capable of masking, layering, advanced color control and a customizable, user-friendly interface, the choices are EXTREMELY limited.

I was hoping the P610 was full frame with f2.8 all the way, but I don't believe it is:(

christom: I just can't go back to such big cameras again.

I know what you mean. Unfortunately, the bigger the camera, the more it attracts pretty females, so it's either a win-lose or a lose-win situation.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 Review preview (434 comments in total)
In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: Let’s get one thing straight. Dpreview has never given any camera anything less than a Silver award. The only thing that the silver award says is that the camera is not good enough to warrant a Gold award.

If they don't, they should have a BRONZE award.
And ALUMINUM, WOOD and PAPER awards - it's only fair and logical.

And don't forget DIAMOND for the very best.

On Google Nexus 6 camera review post (124 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jim Evidon: I usually avoid phone reviews on what used to be a digital camera site, but I decided to take a look at the review.

What I find is that digital phones are now where digital cameras were 10 years ago. As far as I can see, the only use for digital cameras in hand held phones is (1) use it if you need to catch the freeway accident you pass when your real camera isn't handy; i.e, it's probably better than nothing...a debatable point point. And/or (2) it's good for those people that really could care less about photography and like to engage in narcissistic exercises like taking selfies. Blech!

I understand Jim's point of view. My 11 year old DSLR still takes way better photos than any modern phone.

On Quick Look: The art of the unforeground article (85 comments in total)

This reminds me of all those beautiful landscape photos where the only area in super-sharp focus was the stupid little pebbles all the way at the bottom. It always drove me nuts to the point of smashing the screen with my raging fists, wondering what sort of moron was behind the camera.
Just thinking about it makes me crazy - someone, please calm me down before I explode.

carpeted concrete floor?

Really? Hmmm...

I've seen carpets with a lush, soft, 6 inch thick pile.

On Fallen in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (4 comments in total)

I assume that meteor only lasted about 1 to 2 final seconds of the 20 sec. exposure, is that correct? Did it ever hit the ground?
