On f/22 challenge (8 comments in total)

I'm raising hell people....Disqualified twice in this challenge for not having a foreground, middle and background, even though my challenge showed it.
Almost half of these challenges should be disqualified like mine.
Lets see if they are.

mailman88: The 5-axis image stabilization adopted from the OM-D E-M1 system, should make it a pretty solid performer even on the long end of the zoom.

Exact words from photographybay..."The 5-axis image stabilization is adopted from the OM-D E-M1 system, which should make it a pretty solid performer even on the long end of the zoom."

Franz Weber: I simply can not see any improvement over the SH1:
Where is the tiltable screen? Where is the micro usb charging plug?
Where is the brighter lens?

I liked the SH1. But this cam does not improve in any way.

Wrong Franz....same as the E-M1

Even back then...we see a dog picture. Boring dog pics of old are worth money now.
So save your dog pics forum, wait 100 years and some family member will sell them for big money.

On Adobe celebrates 25 years of Photoshop article (366 comments in total)

Hey Adobe...if you want to survive another 25 years, you better change your business model.
Why be part of the photography processing business, when you can "own" the business.

Long term profit is better than short term profit and the "key"... is to keep existing customer and add new customers. Now you're like the cable companies, were the customer turn-over rate is high and profits fluctuate.

MnTony: OMG - this whining is still going on? Folks, the adoption rate for CC was much faster than Adobe predicted. They aren't going back. Buy into it or don't - you have the power of your choice. But whining every time Adobe is mentioned is getting very old. Alternatives may pop up, and competition is always a good thing.

Well, you're wrong. We don't have a choice. Buy into it like you said, or use something else. No other option
Adobe should have two choices.. 1. The old way for the rookies. 2. The new way for the pro's. Let market and the customer decide which way is the best. I'd betting the old way wins out.

But hey Canon ...put the customer first, profits will double. I know this business model is not in your vocabulary. Make affordable products, have everyone buy it....and you'll own the Camera World.

On Canon EOS-1D C sees $4000 price drop in North America article (249 comments in total)

Canon's EDSEL called EOS-1D C will die a slow death. I saw this coming when this camera was first introduced. Reduce this camera to $5000 and still this camera will not sell.

Howaboutraw....A7s at 12 mp, any picture at 6400 looks great. Now use a 24mp sensor, 6400 looks average.

mailman88: If you're old enough to remember...the 10D and 20D were used by the professionals. Nobody mentioned Full Frame
Now...when I shoot 6400ISO, print 13x19 and sell the print to a customer using my 7D....nobody mentions full frame. Everybody is happy.

Dash....I got noise reduction down to a science.
Not bragging... even topaz emailed me about my noise reduction here in DPReview in a private message
