Looks pretty cool but, of course, needs to be larger.

Forgot to mention DXOMark rates this camera/sensor and sports performance nearly top of its class of hybrid cameras.

On 10 Photo Editing Programs (that aren't Photoshop) article (351 comments in total)
In reply to:

Aleksey Stemmer: I would like to mention Nikon's Capture NX2, wich is a very powerful editor with lots of "digital dark room" features. In fact I use it for all my primary photo editing needs, form weddings to stock photography.

Major pros:

Intuitive and fast processing
Powerful selection tools
Non-destructive editing


Nikon only RAW (NEF) processing
Lack of various pixel manipulation tools

Overall, if you are a Nikon shooter, it is really worth to get acquainted with Capture NX2.

For more serious stuff I use DXO.

Stoik Imagic 5.0 is an entry level option. Hasn't been updated in a while, but does have a 'darkroom' feature for developing RAW, and the program has a few special features I use once in a while such as some basic cloning and healing and even some effects.

I also use FastStone for a lot of basic image stuff, particularly resizing and general purpose viewing, cropping, etc.

The other downside the is the new site design is a bandwidth hog, default 'justified' views everywhere.

For some of us on Satellite internet service with restricted bandwidth it absolutely blows. I want to choose which photos I view at higher resolution than simply having Flickr fill up my screen with photos all the time.

I bet the security screeners loved seeing this device come through.

If Obama wore these would he be able to speak Austrian? No. Not even Google could pull that off.

rfsIII: Luckily, the technology for making sense of all those photos is at least years away, so the sheer volume of data is going to be its own protection for now. Think how hard it is to go through the 50,000 or 100,000 photos you have on your hard drive. Multiply that 100 times and then multiply THAT number by the billions of head-mounted cameras that will be in use soon. The Stasi and the CIA and the KGB and whatever other secret police will never be able to go through them all.

I suspect you are seriously wrong and a Billion facebook users and 300 million twitter users are going to be an awful big pool of tech extroverts.

The other shoe to drop is the search engine's uncanny future abilities to tie together seemingly unrelated stuff. People will soon be able to search by portrait (face recognition) and anywhere you've been on Earth and recorded will soon get tied together.... now, whether the public will be able to access it like the government will is another story.

peevee1: FZ200 only now? Aren't they a little late?

Never too late. I really like DXO when you have a supported camera or lens.

In reply to:

castleofargh: one stupid thing on dxo for my use.(and so easy to fix)

simple example: i move a dot on the curve and want to see if it s better or not.
as it is now i will ctrl+Z. dxo will re-render last preview... i wait ...
if i ctrl+y, again dxo will re-render the preview of something that was done 10sec ago!! wtf? how much time would we save if you simply cache the last 2 previews? photoshop can ctrl+Z until the end of times with no freeze, why can't we do a 2steps toggle in less than 5sec?
implement this plz! that s not hard work.

and i can't talk for everybody, but i would like this feature as a toggle on the image clic. because see the original pic, i want to do it maybe twice in the process. see last step preview i want to do it 50times per image.
to me this default toggle between original image and last setting is just some boasting toy, not something really usefull.

I agree with castleofargh... you used to be able to single mouse-click between current view and the original just by mouse-clicking on the image being worked on at the time. This is a critical feature to have back.

In reply to:

Joetsu: This is a bit off topic but so many respondees here are obviously very experienced on this topic of post-processing, so I'd like to ask for your help. I use a Mac and was intending to buy Aperture to go with my upcoming purchase of the Panny GH3. I read comparisons of Aperture and Lightroom and there didn't seem a lot in it. But after reading your comments here, I see Aperture isn't included along with the Big 3 for a future head-to-head review. Why is this?

@JakeB "But most serious photographers use Macs? "

Can you provide a link to support this claim?

In reply to:

Gothmoth: useless crap.
version 8 still does not support DNG.

yeah you can export DNG but the program won´t display DNG files.

what idiocy....

and you think their normnalized sensor benchmark is stupid.....

On their website they indicate DXO will be integrated to support PSP Elements 11 by the end of January, 2013. Don't know if that will bring DNG support, though.

In reply to:

tommy leong: something strange about Microsoft lately
Seems like they are doing things with photographers in mind.

Could it be they think they are actually a competitor to Apple ?

That article is deceiving... about 85% of the 'real' computers out there (non-phones,non ipads) are Microsoft. The MS ankle-biters are ferocious in their attempt to paint the opposite picture. Maybe in a few more years, maybe in 10 their wishes might come true, but today MS is still the king of computers by far.
