maxnimo: People still make prints?

Seems kind of outdated and wasteful of resources considering the growing abundance of tablets and 4K TVs with superb image quality and resolution.

Cihangir - For a while I used to enjoy my huge, heavy album of beautiful 24" prints, but now it lays untouched somewhere in storage because showing my photos on a tablet or my friend's 4K TV looks way better, is much more convenient, and you can even zoom in to see every detail!

It's like going from a washboard to a washing machine. :)

Revenant - I can easily accept the fact that people have different opinions and preferences, as well as flawed logic, destructive beliefs and hostility to new ways of experiencing life.

And there are far worse things around us than someone pointing out a "different view".

Haha ... funny comments from funny people afraid of evolutionary change.

First: Hi-rez tablets and TVs will exist whether photographers use them or not - so no extra resources wasted.

Second: A single screen on your wall can display hundreds, thousands or billions of images for you to enjoy without having to print and frame every single one. Just 500 prints would cost you more than 10 screens on the walls of your home.

Third: I used to do a ton of large format printing and framing, and the sales never made up for the hassle, expenses and wasted time. I'd have made a lot more money selling digital copies at $2 a piece than prints at $150 a piece.

Fourth: If special limited edition signed prints are your thing then, hey, that's a whole separate category mostly reserved for the tiny, wealthy minority. 99.99% of humanity would be perfectly happy just viewing beautiful images on a Hi-rez screen.

On Panasonic confirms Lumix G 25mm F1.7 article (141 comments in total)

A 50mm equiv.? WOW! Simply earthshaking and revolutionary. Last time I saw a new 50mm equiv. was like 500 years ago. It's about time!

On A lot to like: Real-world Leica Q gallery posted article (329 comments in total)

The lens looks very good, about as good as the Fujinon kit zoom, except for one fatal flaw - it seems to be permanently jammed at 28 mm.

Why the heck should my camera care what Windows version my pc has?
Confused, perplexed and befuddled.

On The new Canon 35L II will be a thing of beauty article (223 comments in total)

My favorite all-around lens used to be a 50mm prime. I know it sounds crazy but I'm not joking ... seriously.

Think about this:

99.9% of Earthlings don't know what depth of field is.
99.95% of Earthlings don't know what an F-stop is.
99.99% of Earthlings don't know what dynamic range is.
99.995% of Earthlings don't know what a raw file is.
99.999% of Earthlings would never mess with raw files.

Image quality seems very good for an MFT sensor. The cat at ISO 5000 is impressive, but a true test would be a black cat on bright snow.

On Crazy 8: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 sample gallery article (108 comments in total)
In reply to:

maxnimo: Is this how all new sample galleries will be displayed? I find it very annoying. The old version was much better.

Over the years I've seen many websites that get "upgraded", but the user experience - the look and feel - gets downgraded.

ChrisH37: Some say that Internet comment sections bring out the worst in people, I think Sony a7RII threads are as good an example as any to back this up.

Never has a camera seemingly struck so much hate (and dare I say fear) into so many people who apparently have no intention of ever going near one.

skookum8 - That this camera poses a threat should be obvious. If my wife ever gets her hands on it I will become obsolete, ignored and completely forgotten, doomed to spend eternity alone and loved no more, as her fingers dance upon the camera buttons instead of me.

ChrisH37, are you trying to say that this camera wasn't created by Mr. Lucifer in the depths of hell and will turn us all into raging demons, bringing about the extinction of humanity?

At least that's what my priest said.

Neil189: Sheesh, more elitist comments from unhappy people taking the liberty to complain about whatever issue they feel they are entitled to complain about. Who cares what you think of the royal family. Everyone here complaining should stick to their whiny little attitudes you know where and comment of the subject at hand. They are uncomfortable with their children being photographed, period. Would you be any different with your children regardless of your circumstance? Get over yourself and save your comments for some other bitch forum, like what I imagine your dinner table would be like.

Neil: Every sentient being is entitled to complain about whatever issue bothers them. Period. Anyone taking away that right is paving the path to war.

I can see the logic of having a photo of the most beautiful woman in our galaxy, but a photo of some strange kid that looks like any other kid? Weird.

This sort of retardant is mostly a fertilizer with added red dye and is used to keep a fire from spreading across the sprayed path until ground crews arrive. They claim it's non-toxic, but that's still debatable as there are reports of marine life in rivers being killed off.

In reply to:

The Squire: DO any pro photogs make use of green-screen for otherwise traditional still portraits? Or is it unnecessary because for stills it's easy enough to deal with the background in PS?

The green-screen just makes things way, way easier.

In reply to:

Eric Hensel: I'm happy to see I can use it in Paint Shop Pro...I have no need for Photoshop.

In version 9 you were able to completely customize your interface with little icons anywhere you wished. And you could compare multiple images side by side. And you could simultaneously open multiple images to merge and paste. And you didn't need internet to use it.
