Photo Ninja is another raw converter that might be used in conjunction with an editing program.
My question is which of these programs might accept plugins designed for Photoshop. The NIK plugins also work with Aperture I believe. Does Elements take PS plugins?
Olympus has been an occasionally innovative company with interesting ideas, but has never been run well even going back to the film days when they ignored autofocus and raised their prices comparing themselves to Leica. Upgrades came in decades so seldom got reviewed. They dumped all that and went for years without product to develop their first digital SLRs. The recent announcement that they are dumping their DSLR customers formalizing the reality of the last several years is history repeating itself while a newcomer like Sony surges ahead. This is just another segment being abandoned by Olympus.
Stacey_K: I find it comical when a camera system has a slew of amazing zooms, people complain "where are the primes? All I want are prime lenses." So them a camera system comes out with a bunch of nice primes and people bitch "We want zooms" lol
What camera system do you mean? Maybe m43? This is a two system lens and just what is needed for NEX which has no amazing zooms. Complaining about people is better?
At last. A true portrait length for my NEX. Bravo, Sigma.
Why is this a mirrorless competitor? The price point is the same as the D3200 and it trades resolution and a lower specced focus system for an inconsequentially smaller body.
Deja vu, all over again.
Ex OM4T owner.
Hmm. A conceptual artist who is unclear on the concept? The form of the camera is the result of its function just like a hammer. The fora on this site are filled with discussions of function, not how lovely the little machines are, or what is the proper prayer to the little fetish. This exhibit seems to me to be an expression of contempt for photographers. No doubt the art world will clutch Arsham to their breast as a genius as they did Susan Sontag.
It seems to me that many of these pack bags sort of miss the point. I suppose there is a certain amount of esthetic pleasure to be had for all your stuff in one container, but few of their designers really think about what it is like to use them doing travel photography or on a trail for scenics or animals. One needs space to stow a jacket, cap, water, maybe a lunch, sun screen or insect repellent that will be positioned and hardened against spillage that will leak on camera or computer. If you do not need those things then you probably are not going to be out long enough to need a backpack other than as a storage device in the trunk of the car.
abdalim: Is the book suitable for the beginners?
Probably not. I bought an Evening book for an earlier version of Photoshop and it was exhausting and I did not learn very much. The approach Scott Kelby takes with his books by showing how to do the tasks that a photographer wants to do and giving you the steps to do to be much better for a beginner.
roy5051: That's a bit quick for an update, isn't it? It's only been a few months since iPad3.
It seems clear to me that they plan to revise all the iPads at the same time in the future. So it would not make sense to introduce a Mini version of an iPad that does not exist. And how unhappy would those owners of the third version be if some of the features of the bargain basement version were better than their 6 month old iPad?
This is wonderful. Thanks. A lot of us with NEX-7 models have been looking forward to a new lens or two for some time. Considering how cranky the 24 MP sensor is with some lenses do you think it would be possible to also make some samples with these lenses and the NEX 7? Many of us have lusting after a 16-50 which will fulfill the compact promise of the NEX.
dpreviewblog: Next strange Adobe's decision around DNG... BTW... Why I never shoot in DNG-format and d't use this format as archival for images - http://www.libraw.org/articles/2-ways-to-nowhere.html
re: 2 ways to nowhereNever trust any article outside of a theoretical physics text that uses the term entropy, or "armature" when amateur is meant. The first is used to put you in your place and the second just shows sloppiness. Seriously, there is nothing to be learned from someone who uses "put down" rather than explanations when questions are asked.
Love the shot. Also love the bunion trees.
They look to me like a big ego taking revenge against a client who has already deposited the money. "I am so good, they will think they are art and I will be laughing. Ef the Olympics." Hopefully he will regret it in his old age.
Almost perfect. If it had an EVF I would have sold my NEX7. I never understand why companies don't learn. All the people trading in their 5s and 5Ns for 7s are not just after a few more megapixels. It is the built-in viewfinder. A small fraction of an inch wider to accommodate one would not have made it less pocketable.
Thanks for another great preview.
Looks sepia to me. Not many browsers are capable of rendering sRGB correctly. Safari can. You might also have a cool toned display.
Brilliant. Something many photographers have wanted for a long time, but something the market dominating makers which spew out copies of each others equipment have been unwilling to offer. Nice to see a manufacturer thinking about their customers and not just a consumer after more features.
Wow. What a good idea. You guys develop all that experience with the cameras and sharing it is awesome. There was a little of that in the NEX-7 review with the settings. Maybe more?
Interesting. It looks as though Nikon has decided to separate itself from the pack of mirrorless cameras nipping at its heels by increasing resolution to a point they cannot match and still be useable. It does make one wonder where they will go from 24 MP in DX. Is this the end of the line for DX?
Except the Pentax is limited to 1600 ISO.
