Awesome – I needed a new toiletry bag.
stawarz: So will this set a precedent whereby if an animal takes a picture of itself the photographer who's equipment took the image no longer assumes copyright? Now what happens to all the other wildlife pictures whereby they were triggered by the animal tripping a remote release and not by the photographer, have they in fact taken a selfie?
So it's down to whether or not someone has the idea first? Well, I guess he should just reissue his statement and claim that it was his idea to give the monkey his camera allowing it to take selfies.
Yeah, cheers Canon.
NiklaiN: Use Nikon software for Nikon RAW files. You will see miracles!
@NiklaiN from your experience how does Nikon's raw conversion software compare with Capture One, assuming you have tried both? And using which camera? Cheers.
vFunct: Lightroom is awful and simply not as good as Aperture. Lightroom focuses on garbage features like Lens Correction, when the features like metadata workflow is FAR more important to a professional photographer than any "lens correction" ever could be.
No client in the world has EVER cared about lens distortion & correction. They don't even NOTICE it. So why the hell does Lightroom even include that as a "feature"? They should be trying to get their metadata workflow to be as good as Aperture's.
Really, Lightroom is only for high-end amateurs and other prosumers. It really isn't a professional calibre photo tool like Aperture is.
Meanwhile, looking over the Photos demo from WWDC, it does look like it's more Aperture than iPhoto, so that is a sign of relief. Also, it looks like we'll be able to move the Aperture database over to Photos, so that probably means it has Aperture's feature set, maybe including stacks and so on... dunno... we'll see.
@vFunct brilliant – thanks for the laugh!
Capture One, guys, Capture One.
What would be wonderful is smart phone that has decent battery life. Then cram in all the bells and whistles afterwards.
High-end optical performance, eh?
It's all... part of the plan.
I love discovering new photographers, even this one. I just don't expect to see one seemingly random student plucked from the pool of many talented individuals and occupy the front page of dpreview.
A limited edition of something already quite exclusive. Amazing.
forpetessake: Fuji is offering lessons in voyeurism, aka "street photography".
How exactly is street photography or street photographers voyeuristic or perverse? Because they're unaware of being photographed? Big deal. You see these people about in public doing public things – what's the difference if you record what you see or not?
Hey Canon, make a red one!
shamhead: Also good of dpreview to have the balls to post this.
Well it's all about honesty which in turn retains readership which in turn... well, you don't need to be a genius to figure it out.
I now feel a little foolish for actually being impressed by this camera's announcement. Should have known better.
Ian Worthington: Will people please stop moaning that the sensor is not 6x4.5? The sensor is what it is. If you want a larger one go spend the extra money on something else.
For me this makes an interesting alternative to a 5D3 at about twice the price, though it clearly can't share my existing lenses, for the same reason I don't always want to shoot with my 7D: low light iso noise and resolution.
The proof of the pudding is going to be in the lens options and their quality though.
@s mcintosh sure but 645 refers to 6x4.5 cm which it is not.
It's more the misleading naming format, not that it's a smaller sensor size.
Just Ed: Rah, rah, "YES"Sony Seven "S"
Rah, rah "Look See"Sony makes me "ZZZZzzzzZZZZzzzz"
Quit your jibber jabber!
I want one. No joke.
Government intervention. Ha!
