On Massive $33,500 2450mm f/8 NASA lens surfaces on eBay article (235 comments in total)
In reply to:

Scottelly: Fankly, I'm surprised it's less than $100,000 dollars. You'd think something made by NASA or for NASA would be really expensive, just because of what it represents. Imagine having one of Henry Ford's cars or a suit, horse, or hat belonging to George Washington? How about a pen used by Thomas Jefferson or better yet, how about a quill and ink well used by Shakespeare? One day this stuff will be legendary, and people in the future will pay big money to get anything from Earth, let alone something like a telescopic lens, which represents our curiosity about space and other planets and stars, solar systems, and galaxies, where most humans will live one day, in maybe as little as 100 years. Give something like this to a child, who is 5 or 6 now, but will be 20 or 30 when given something like this, and that child may get a large fortune for it in 100 years, when people are living an average of 150 years or more and space travel is as normal as air travel is today.

Scottelly, this lens might take very nice pictures of a 5 miles asteroid on a path to hit earth and extinct human race.

Sailor11677: This would seem to have vast privacy and security applications and ultimately, implications. It is somewhat ironic that the sample photo is what appears to be a third-world market where one might assume terrorists or other subversives could frequent.

@Ozyxy, No privacy might be fine in a world with human rights, democracy and so on. Imagine in a decade your democratic government replaced by a dictature with control of that technologi. I live in a country that just went from democracy to dictatorship, and some get arrested for their voice on social networks.

the minor test i did with Canon, i found the TTL unreliable. nothing beats manual mode for control anyway.

I think that on sites as FaceBook, you will find most stolen images. But they remove EXIF & IPTC data on picture uploads. I never understood why?

On In photos: 'Paris in the Springtime' article (70 comments in total)
In reply to:

bigdaddave: Anyone worried about sharpness or dynamic range?

No, of course not because when the subject matter is so fantastic stuff like that really doesn't matter at all. Nor should it.

I remember that time, gear nerds didn’t talk much camera gear, as all cameras more or less had same features. Tech talk was more focused on lens, film type, film developer and mixture, paper types…

nicolas guilbert: I know the article was based on tools when shooting. but i would like to hear as well on tools to rate pictures. I usualy upload the whole content of a photoshoot on my iPad. it is frustrating not being able to rate pictures or at least get a file name info on the native apps. Any suggestions for an app doing that.

Thanks for the useful links. I just bought photo manager pro, looks it gives me rating capabilities.

I don't know much about alternative grips to EOS 5D's, But i can't imagine they are worse than the originals. Canon's grips in that segment are total garbage. Bad Ergonomics and plastic gears that breaks. I long after a grip with the quality they did to EOS1 film bodies.

what about sites striping out the IPTC data out of images, such as Facebook and others. This should be an illegal act.

borisz: I've heard that Adobe's competitors went to church today to light a candle and to thank Lord for these great news...

This is very weird, even for Pros. I am often on the move with CS6 on my laptop. Often at places with erratic or no internet connection. What is adobe thinking?

The lightning is awful. What a waste of money and gear. He sure would do a better job walking on the street.

On Online images and copyright infringement article (255 comments in total)
In reply to:

D1N0: She put it on the internet, there is no copyright information in the exif. Still not and the pic is still No. 2 hit for "Strathmere Weddings" If this is theft then she is criminally negligent by putting the picture on the interwebs this way. Facilitating theft.

When you read her messages you get the image of a middle aged woman who has created her own private reality and who steam rolls anybody who gets in the way of it. You know the type when you ever worked for a customer service. Evil clients from hell!

EXIF & IPTC data has nothing to do with copyright laws. What about sites removing them ?

3 days shooting, 3 month for stitching the images, and there is still some month work to be done to retouch the flaws. I don't really know what to say other than i would have chosen another more interesting location for that kind of shoot.

Carlos C: Seen this coming for a while now. Long time Adobe user here. Must look for alternatives since I am being priced out from this greedy company. Yeah, it is capitalism, so is my move.

This is one of the reasons why i now use non adobe software when possible. Meaning, delivering at least quality and performance wise. That is for RAW conversions, DAM, Video editing etc…
But for Pro Photo Editing, there is absolutely no alternative ATM, and i really miss more players in that field.

aardvark7: Although I agree with many of the 'greedy Adobe' comments, one has to appreciate that they are a business after all.

However, I don't understand the sense of using it at all!

If I had been a subscriber recently I would have been stuffed, as my broadband went down for almost 4 days. That would have been totally unacceptable and not even down to Adobe!

Cloud subscription for software is seriously flawed for this reason and I will never sign up.

Cloud solutions doesn't work worldwide, Corporates believing it works everywhere are dreaming. Apple forced notes sync between devices over the cloud and trashed the old cable solution. It has been a headache at times for me living in Asia.
