Boundary Warp is a really nice addition.

This lens isn't doing it for me at all.

Really like my little 4K Panasonic camcorder. Very sharp!

On article Nikon D810 firmware C 1.10 now available (62 comments in total)
In reply to:

Khizer: What this tells me is that companies like Nikon (whom I have patronized for years) have come to think of their customers as muppets. The company is always in a hurry to release its latest and greatest and this follows with either recalls or firmware updates to fix bugs, private messages to bring the equipment over for servicing. If your livelihood does not depend on owning the latest and greatest camera, then wait a few months for the dust to settle before buying.

By the way, why are there no firmware updates for my D800E? Does anyone know?

Dumb post of the day, over stiff competition.

On article Adobe issues Lightroom 6.2 apology and update (229 comments in total)
In reply to:

PascallacsaP: Just made a full switch from Aperture to Lightroom 6, have more or less mastered the not so intuitive user interface of LR, and now this... Doesn't feel good. Glad I'm not an early adopter. Will definitely stay with 6.1 for the time being. And will definitely look around for sensible alternatives again...

This is where all the Capture One fans gang up. "Way sharper, better color, blah blah blah." It's nonsense. I recommend the Kelby Lightroom book and you'll be an expert in two weeks. Any high end software requires a bit of study to get slick with it.

GordonAtWork: It could do with a proper case for all the gubbins to fit into and the way the battery pack seems to be held in place by a thick rubber band looks a little Heath Robinson. It could be fun to put it into spin mode at 180 degree/sec and drive along a road at 100mph with this poking out of the sunroof.

Gubbins, lol! Another draught from the bottomless well of British slang!

On article Nikon D7200 Field Test: Desert dance photo shoot (100 comments in total)
In reply to:

Retzius: Nice video! Unfortunately, it really underscores Nikon's poor attitude towards DX users. If you are going to use all pro level FX glass and pro lighting (like in the video) you aren't going to buy a semi-pro DX camera... It is rather awkward that you need pricey pro FX glass to showcase your flagship DX product. If Nikon had made a smaller, less expensive, f2.8 trinity for DX I could see the point of a video like this, but the way things stand it seems like failed vision on Nikon's part.

Your 16-85VR will do an excellent job on the D7200 when you finally upgrade. Count your blessings!

I suspect a rather large number of photographers will use the D7200 with excellent optics, with which it shows really superb sharpness that is very near what a D810 can produce, at a considerable savings. I bought the D7200 to go with my pro lenses and one or two of the consumer grade. Will the ever whining stop? Probably not.

On article Corel releases ParticleShop brush plugin for Photoshop (83 comments in total)
In reply to:

clicstudio: I bought it this afternoon. I had to manually install it on Photoshop CS6 on Mac OS X 10.10.4. since it tried to install on Photoshop CC 2015, which I don't use.
Launching from PS it crashes Photoshop and it makes it Not Respond. Force Quitting PS reveals the Plug in interface which is extremely simple, not intuitive and limited to the starter pack. I like some of the effects so far but if it crashes PS, it's basically useless... It lets you work on the image but since you can't save it, so you just lose all the work... Terrible!
I should have known Corel didn't have a trial version spelled bad news...
I will ask for a refund or for an update that works.
I haven't tried it on PS CC 2015 since my trial is expired but it will probably be the same... Let me know if anyone has luck making it work.
Cheers
Pat

Imagine that, a Corel program that crashes :^)
