the minor test i did with Canon, i found the TTL unreliable. nothing beats manual mode for control anyway.
Jogger: What's next, GoPro video of paint drying?
Next, the one with the cat.
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?
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…
DPR can you please make an article on what camera Paris Hilton and other celebrities use. I need some advice and i'm confused on what to buy next.
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.

Some quite good ones among the 30 on her website.
future topics will be on water quality and pump speed ;)
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.
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.
What we need is Canon to develop an iPhone & Android app and a connection to the phone. And please integrate wifi in future bodies. You can really fell the stupidity of all this when you have a 2K $ body and use a cheap phone to take a picture of the camera display and then send that image over wifi network to somebody else.
EmmanuelStarchild: Don't forget, once you post a photo to Facebook it becomes their property. You may delete it, but FB has already copied it and added it to their database.
I solve this buy posting pictures with a watermark, If facebook have rights on the picture, it only applies to the one with the watermark? I belive.
Sean Nelson: I'm quite opposed to anything that would limit the life of the products I buy, and this is why I never buy equipment without user-replaceable batteries.
IMHO, the biggest battery advance doesn't require any breakthrough at all - just get all the electronics manufacturers to agree on a few standard form factors for Li-Ion batteries so I don't have to buy new batteries and chargers for every last freaking thing I own. Being able to share batteries would go a long, long way toward reducing battery purchases and the attendant disposal issues down the line.
But of course it would rob the manufacturers of one of their most lucrative sources of income, so I don't suppose I'll live to see it...
I don´t know if true, but heard that the universality of the micro-USB for phone charging is there now, because of pressure from the EU, that would not accept different chargers for each phone model to be approved anymore.
