Suave: I sure hope they made it a bit faster.

I don't accept this notion. My computer is fast enough for ACR, if DPP works slower it's on programmers.

NeilSDPR: There is still no A size crop option in the crop tool section, presumably they are going to stop selling A size paper and printers

Without this version 4 is useless to me because changes made in version 3 are not recognised by version 4, and I use the A size crop a lot

You know it has an option called "transfer to Photoshop"?

On BPG image format aims to replace JPEGs article (206 comments in total)
In reply to:

Suave: It's going to be the same story as with mp3 - every few months someone comes out with improved or lossless format and all they do is annoy regular listener, who needs to find a way to convert to usable form.

It may all be true but it does not change the outcome - end users will not adopt a new format on their own. It would have to be pushed from above - by Apple, Samsung, Canon and Nikon adopting it.

Lawrencew: Any idea of the EU and UK price?
No price is given in the EU press release.

"One dollar is not worth one euro." With VAT it is.

Bananasplit: I have no doubt that the lens is nice, well build and awsome optics. But the price is not worth for me..

I think the strategy of Canon is to earn more monry by making their product as expensive as possible, just a bit above what one would expect to pay. I believe it is a bad marketing strategy.

You've gotta be kidding! Most people expected it to come in 2.5-3K range.

Surprisingly reasonable price. Looks like someone at Canon has learned his lesson.

peevee1: $359 for fully manual lens. Or you can get Pentax or Minolta 55/1.8 for $20 plus $90 focal reducer which can be used with many other lenses too.
Even Canon FD58/1.2 or Minolta 58/1.2 with the focal reducer would be cheaper, and a whole stop faster.
Now, quality is a different issue. Who knows what quality wide open this 42.5/1.2 lens has?

Have you checked the price of Rokkor 58/1.2 recently?

If you shoot it wide open, then number of blades is irrelevant. If you close it down, there are countless legacy options in 35-50 range that'll probably blow it away at lower price while providing cross-body compatibility.

Jones R: The government really ought to take this beyond national parks. Look at Hungary and their recent photography law. Making images (static photographs and video) of people without their knowledge or consent should be a federal offense. Right now one could mostly take pictures or video images of pedestrians without their knowledge or consent - and in my opinion, this is not only wrong, but should be made illegal.

It's a little surprise riskinhos is so cagey about his origins. He is from Portugal, one of the poorest, most corrupt and underdeveloped countries in Western Europe.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II: A professional's opinion article (509 comments in total)
In reply to:

mosc: Wow, you prefer the 5D to the 7D, amazing insight! 10 FPS is not even that quick if you got off of your Canon fixation. This is one of the most expensive APS-C cameras on the market, it's not "cheap". Lenses are true to their focal lengths when they're made for the sensor size camera you have. That's nothing to do with whtiher it's APS-C or FF. If you use a MF lens on your 5D, it's not going to use the whole lens.

Gah, this article is somewhere between frustrating and simply irritating.

@mosc - would you mind reducing your list to cameras equipped with working AF?

I am trying to understand whether you are being sarcastic or simply insane, but I can't.

Superka: For those who claim that Epson V750/700 (and I think 800/850) can produce any good resolution for film, go for
http://filmscanner.info/en/EpsonPerfectionV750Pro.html

What he says in his review may apply only to perfectly exposed and processed high end stock shot with pro glass. I scanned a ton of old family films with V700 and it equally easily resolves grain on 50-60 year old b/w film and modern consumer-grade color film and the defects I see all come from crappy cameras and amateur shooting.

Learn the difference between principal and principle.

Is it principal to be such a man of principle?

BarnET: The EOS 7D Mark II omits built-in Wi-Fi. Is this feature less important to 7D II users compared to (say) 70D owners?

No, we don’t think so. We considered adding this feature to the EOS 7D II but the body material presented challenges. But we have a solution with the optional Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E7A.

that is a $789,- transmitter..........
That is not a solution that's a rip-off.

Yeah, that was a BS answer.

Bananasplit: He believes that Canon sensors are at the level of Sony sensors, lol!

I think he says that sensor quality does not matter until you put it into an AF-equipped camera.
