Looks like a Rollei

Hype! There are a thousand apps some are even free that do the same. A great new feature would be batch editing but this app is like all the others it's getting boring for sure!

princecody: Is this a gimmick feature?

No not at all! But it is limited in use (no moving subject, necessary of tripod etc)

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II First Impressions Review preview (1392 comments in total)

fully-articulated LCD wow! I can see me changing my GH4 to this one, the display has always been the reason for me to go with the GH-series despite being a still shooter but I love to shoot in portrait format in every possible position.

QuarryCat: it looks like a small 67 - ok fullframe with 50 MP is today what medium format was in the old days.
I am shire the camera will come, but as an old Pentax photographer I wouldn't buy it. It needs new lenses and it is far to late and Pentax has full frame already with the 645Z.
Pentax has still trouble with a fast and precise autofocus - compared to Canon and Nikon systems - and even the K3 and 645Z are years back behind a fast autofocus.
I think Pentax should build lenses for every mount, but after the Pentax LX was gone, no more real good Pentax camera arrived.

I still have a lot of Pentax FF-lenses despite shooting mainly fourthirds now. You still can buy them pretty cheap on ebay etc. and the available legacy FF-collection is huge! There is even a converter availabe that's give 1.7 and a AF for manual lenses. Really FF-lenses for Pentax are easy and cheap to get and they are great!

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 flips for selfies article (395 comments in total)

Panasonic has a very smart product philosophy: make three cameras which uses over 90% of the same assembly parts but target different markets with each of it. Kudos to them even if I personally prefer the GM5!

On ACDSee Ultimate 8 introduces layer-based editing article (67 comments in total)

Well ACDSee is my favorite image browser and as I have to stick with Photoshop CS6 because I will never ever join their cloud it's good to have some future opportunities. Competetion is very welcome and needed here!

On ACDSee Pro 8 and ACDSee 18 announced article (51 comments in total)

Zoner is awesome and certainly a better image-browser than Slowroom! But it is multiple times slower then it comes to browsing through your images in full screen viewing mode. Which is still ACDSees stronghold nothing beats ACDSee in this regard. Therefore ACDSee remains my main image-browser and fast editing tool and I just use Lightroom, Zoner, Photomechanic and Photoshop in addition to it. I agree that the update from ACDSee Pro 7 to Pro8 is underwhelming but the automatic indexing feature made it worth for me.

Almeida: What is the equivalent aperture godmanit?!

They need three leaf shutter lenses (wide angle, normal and portrait tele) and nobody will ever look at Hasselblad and PhaseOne anymore. Yes they have old leaf shutter lenses (75mm and 135mm) but they are all manual including manual cocking the shutter.

On Hands on with the Pentax 645Z article (682 comments in total)
In reply to:

SDPharm: I wish Pentax had made an EVF and made it tiltable like the Panasonic GX7. It just does not seem comfortable to hold such a big camera at eye level.

The 645 is a pleasure to hold don't worry no Tripod needed promised. EVF is the future but the OVF of the Pentax 645 is really great in no way comparable to 35mm cameras.

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (451 comments in total)

I like the fully articulated LCD on the old model much more as I do a lot of potrait orientated photos.
I don't believe in a separate viewfinder I rarely use the built-in viewfinder of my G1x but then I need its there and it works okay in the rare situations I need it.
Image quality of markII doesn't seem better than the G1x.
I'm using a Canon macro filter to overcome the shortcomings in macro of my G1x and the results are excellent.
I guess the markII is not for me would still like the improved speed though.

If you like to shoot in portrait format the new screen is a big disadvantage I will keep my old one no need to upgrade.

I do see quite a lot of stitching and blending errors. Nevertheless a great innovation!

On iPhone 5s Studio Comparison article (263 comments in total)

A more relevant note:
I don't see any real improvements between the 5 and 5s it's hard to see any real improvements at Apple lately, hope this chance soon.
