Mirrorless Crusader: This is not image theft, you are transforming an image with a watermark into an image without a watermark.

If you don't own the original it's not yours to copy.

It's not OK to copy someone else's work and then use it for your own purposes.

What a load of thieves and people of low moral fibre we have here.

gsum: Ridiculous. Anything you post on the Internet becomes public property. Most photography sites contain post-card sized images that are of no use other than to give an impression of the full sized print. The images on my site are a bit larger at 800x533 pixels and are not watermarked. If anyone wants to 'steal' them, they are welcome.

Posting material on the internet does NOT put it in the public domain, it DOES NOT become public property.

(I hope you didn't mean what I think you meant).

So, if I come along and re-paint your car, it's OK for me then to take and use it? I've transformed your car into mine and it isn't theft.

I have NEVER illegally downloaded copyrighted software, music and videos. All the material on my computer I either own or have paid for!

Niklas Ramstedt: I'd actually consider this one. My Dell Precision M4700 is starting to get a bit heavy.

0 takes up more space too. It is decidedly obese and 1 is obviously anorexic. You have a too many 0s.

Wye Photography: There are many features in Aperture I really like. But, Adobe Lightroom has better, faster and easier to use features. Come on Apple, Aperture X please!

ThePhillips I have RTFM, I also have read the Lightroom manual. I prefer the Lightroom manual because it has faster and better features than the Aperture manual. Clear!

Maverick_: guys before bashing this, keep one thing in mind, the Surface is a very popular product. They do sell. And it's a neat but flawed concept.

I was in the market for an ultrabook, narrowed my choice to a 13.3" Sony Flip, but before buying it Sony sold that division and I decided to look further. Also 13.3 Flip screen is way too heavy to be used as tablet since the keyboard is still attached.

The Surface 2 Pro wasn't even in the running for me, because of the tiny screen size and weight.

So, I decided to look at tablets instead and just when I needed to finalize my purchase Samsung came out with the excellent Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. I got the LTE version on first day of release and have not regretted it.

Surface going to 12" is a good move, but a better move would be 13.3. Windows products don't work as well on small screens. But keep in mind, the thickness/weight of the Surface is its worst enemy.

The future will be phones and tablets and only 1% will use desktops.

Every product is flawed - to someone!

Jogger: Ive had a Surface Pro since day 1 and its the best laptop/tablet out there. Those with iPads.. have fun letting Apple/NSA spy on your every move and the walled-off ecosystem... hint, its a millstone, not a feature.

Get a life!

In reply to:

Wye Photography: Right Americans, although these pictures are all in fact in England, it is a country which is part of a union and collectively called Britain or the United Kingdom (that may change this September). Most English people (and a good deal of other people from the other nations in the union) prefer to use the term 'British'. I am Welsh but also British and prefer the term British.

As it was 1939 the term "Great Britain in colour" (even spelled that wrong) would have been more appropriate. The English are much more unionised than Welsh and Scottish nationalists.

If it wasn't for Bloody Napoleon you Americans would still be where you belong, and that is under the British crown (NOT an English one)

Rant over, cat among pigeons.

AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHS. I say, just LOVE the jalopy in pictures 1 and 23.

Long live the King!

WillianJ,

Actually, one of my heroes is Napoleon. You are welcome to invade! I do think the British will be better off being run by France than by the current crop of Bustard incumbents and their Germanic nobility. Oh! and being the lapdog of the former colony is rather galling.

Although I loathed Mrs Thatcher at least she had more balls than all the politicians put together from Mr. Churchill onwards.

...and finally, the British should have dealt with the aristocracy the same way the French did!

So there!

samfan: Nice images, though, honestly, except the last one they don't seem that interesting to me personally.

BTW made today, these photos would not be slammed for IQ issues (maybe except the blurry one), because you aren't looking for IQ in a grainy BW document/street photo.

There is a reason, however, why Ansel Adams and other landscapers shot with medium format. Sometimes the IQ needs to be there.

Ansel Adams DID shoot medium format. Some of his MF work appears in "The Negative", later editions I think. I have a couple of copies including a signed 1st edition. I'll have to check. He used a Hasselblad, Tri-X and developed in HC-110 (in the section on compensating developers).

In reply to:

Donnie G: Alright, who's the comedian who came up with the term "mirrorless" cameras? Who the heck walks into a Costco, Walmart or Best Buy and says "Hey, can I buy a mirrorless camera? Or, Hey, can I buy a stepless ladder?" Sounds like something important has been left out of the product, doesn't it? I mean I understand what those folks are trying to say: "Mirrors! We don't need no stinking mirrors." I get it. But they need to come up with a new product description or catch phrase to help sell these cameras they claim to love so much. And please no, don't use E.V.I.L. either, unless you want to continue to have warehouses full of "marketless, SLRless" cameras for sale. :)

I just love your poor grammar and irrelevant comment!

In reply to:

Boky: I had a good look at the samples photos. They seem too "blend" with compressed dynamic range, quite lifeless, over-sharpened but with no sense of depth at all... something I'd expect to get from the likes of S90 / S95 / S120... very disappointing.

Nick

The sample photos I downloaded from imaging resource from both the MkI and MkII clearly shows that the MkII has MORE noise at higher ISO than the MkI.
