On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1531 comments in total)
In reply to:

Galbertson: Greetings,
Been researching intensly D810. Also D610 , but does not have Live View exposure preview...what a stupid deletion.

Does anyone know if new iPhone soon to be released work as as external monitor directly out of hdmi port?

Looks like the exposure preview on the live view is there in the D810 by pressing the 'ok' button.

However didn't catch that in the manual for movie mode (maybe just got unnoticed when browsing quickly).

In reply to:

Photo_AK: "... a single-user subscription is available for 10,00 USD / 8,00 EUR per month for a 12 month plan."

See Adobe? How come Phase One gets it right with their new Capture One Pro 8, and you don't at 9,99 USD / 12,29 EUR for your yearly CC Photography plan?

Correct, my bad, thanks Andrew!

While I don't like subscription only model from Adobe, you are comparing apples to oranges: Adobe plan is for 2 products Lr + PS
(Lr is roughly C1 equivalent and PS is an additional software).

Adobe doesn't have any plan for Lr only.

Indeed, the lack of the exposure preview seems to be weird.
I wonder if that could be implemented later on in the firmware?

On Canon confirms price drop on select EF lenses article (140 comments in total)
In reply to:

ihv: Looks to me like a statement that no exciting product is coming any time soon from Canon. It kind of says that the upcoming 7D2 is still using the old sensor tech.

Well maybe you notest I did'nt take the authority to tell how it will be. This is why I used: "Looks to me", "It kind of".

It presents what I (me) believe and what I (me) consider not much of improvement myself.

In reply to:

AndreaV: Funny how so many people can complain even for a price reduction! :)
I would just consider it a very good news!

Depends how you look at it. In a tech-oriented trade show promoting your "old" stuff is not really like just starting the series of announcements about new innovations.

In reply to:

Couscousdelight: Judged by it's image quality, for me, GoPro is pretty overrated...

What are your criteria i.e. you are comparing it to with what in the same class (small action cameras)?
Not saying the IQ is overly good but useful enough for what it is.

While sometimes it might feel like gambling, Sony has to be congratulated for pushing new ideas.

"The update is free for Creative Cloud members".

Well, this is why membership is paid for. Quite far from being free.

On Canon updates firmware for EOS-1D X article (72 comments in total)
In reply to:

hikerdoc: So, a 1Dx user wishes to improve AF performance he/she logs onto the Canon site to download a firmware upgrade. A D4 user wishes to improve AF performance he/she logs onto the B&H site and buys a new body at a cost likely north of $6k.

While seemingly correct, Canon had major problems with the 1D3 and 1D4. Just a moment in time doesn't always tell the whole story.

PhotoHawk: There are much better programs out there for editing photographs than PS Elements for the same price or less. Frankly the GIMP and Rawtherapee combination is far more capable for $149.99 USD less. If one would want a current commercial package the latest versions of Corel's products are quite a bit more comprehensive.

GIMP and Rawtherapee are both for free, though the aspect of being better might be a subject of discussion.

I don't know exactly all the features but for the same price the Corel Photopaint has 64 bits engine to render images plus it has Nik Color Efex built in (PSE12 is 32).

whtchocla7e: As an amateur, I will never accept the subscription model.
I don't change cameras often and I don't process files frequently. I would never get my monies worth.

If I use it Sundays only it doesn't mean I don't appreciate the pro features.

There is a nice example in the music making world - exactly the same feature set costs very different amount whether it is for personal use or for serious production (Reaper).

I applaud this approach.

Very happy about focussing on editing. The healing brush alone makes me very happy.

RStyga: And, of course, we'll be forced to use the latest Adobe product... How nice of them... 'Sick of their "policy"... Although I own Elements 8, I have to purchase, again, Elements 10 to use ACR 6.7 for my K-01...

If you are concerned with new camera support, then Adobe has made quite a big effort for camera makers to use an open standard format. One can only blame camera makers here.

I might get one, very nice concept.

P.S. Sony has Full HD @ 60fps, lovely.

Morpho Hunter: Ah ...must due be the 36mp sensor ...why else would a camera that cannot produce sharp hand-held images when viewed at 100% win such an award?

You have obviously not tried the camera.

On Nikon D800 preview (1110 comments in total)
In reply to:

srimano: As a Canon user (with a quite an investment in Canon gear), I was at first too disappointed to see lower specs of Canon 5d3 and 1dx, in comparison to D4 and D800. To add to this, DxO Marks declared D800 sensor as the new 'Best' sensor leading even PhaseOne IQ180 (previous best).

From the sensor quality and image quality point of view (ignoring all other aspects like focusing etc), is D800 sensor really that good?

When I looked, like hundreds of samples images.. I am not convinced at all. I still think D3s and 1Ds3 produce more stunning images than D800/D4 and 1Dx respectively. Hell with the metrics some people use to compare those sensors..

In this case, I think I will just go with my eyes. I will continue to be Canon...

Based on my own unscientific comparisons (I have a 5D2) the Nikon D800 file has A LOT MORE of flexibility in post processing. I was surprised to see that not only the details were recoverable in shadows but also the colors were there, no comparison with the 5D2. However to make most out of extra resolution a very good lens has to be used in conjunction with good exposure speed/tripod. The D800 is a dream camera for studio-landscape shooters.
