I have used Photos since it was released and I like it better than IPhoto. I am old school. When I shot slides, what you shot you had to live with. Framing, aperture, speed had to be right the first time. I mainly use the cropping feature and exposure to tweak a photo. Beyond that I don't see the point unless you are a professional photo editor.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2962 comments in total)

Not jumping up and down for this one. I have the RX100 and I like the 100mm extension vs. 70mm. Also I never cared for the II because I didn't think the upgraded sensor made too much of a difference and the the swivel screen made no difference to me. I will wait to see some photos before I say anything else.

On TIME's top photos of the year article (149 comments in total)

No doubt that some of these photographers were in harms way themselves. The Typhoon photo is moving for the resilience shown by the survivors. Some of the photos are downright disturbing and I don't get the point that most of these photos need to be disturbing to make the cut. Can there not be some top new stories that have wonderful photos that show man at a high level of humanity?

I miss Kodachrome. How Kodak was mismanaged I don't know. But, they should have been dominant in digital photography as I believe they were making the first digital cameras. Shame. Kodak did so much for photography.

On Sony DSC-RX100 preview (544 comments in total)

This camera looks great. I miss my old 35mm Rollie I carried in my pocket. I have a couple issues here. I have been comparing the sample images with the Olympus XZ -1. I have two things that may make me not reach for my wallet on the Sony.

1. I/Q the RX100 images seems soft to me compared to XZ -1. The XZ -1 colors look better as well.

2. Low light performance. The samples for the RX100 seem brighter on the low end.

I don't care about the price difference and I want to really pine for the Sony but it seems that it is missing something image wise. Maybe this is just a settings issue. I have read here that the noise reduction on the Sony causes such issues on their other models.

If anyone has information to clarify this chime in.

Is it me or are these images a bit on the soft side? There seems to be a lot of compression here.

On Bride burning - South India in the Public Health challenge (16 comments in total)

This madness must be stopped. It also occurs in other countries in that area such Pakistan where laws have been passed to protect women. Thank you for bringing this issue to the attention of everyone in the world. We have to cherish and respect women and not burn them with acid.
