On Flickr Wall Art removes Creative Commons prints article (30 comments in total)

Never played with Flickr Wall since it appeared they wanted me to buy a print first (and cheap b@stard I am) so no loss for me. :)

On BPG image format aims to replace JPEGs article (205 comments in total)

We do need a better format then jpeg. This format almost seems too good to be true since it also supports alpha channel (transparency) as well as has a lossless mode (but not sure if that ability is better then PNG). Still, I do hope it gets browswer support shortly. :)

On SanDisk unveils 512GB Extreme Pro card article (161 comments in total)

Hard to believe this is real. Amazing. Just wish they could solve the infinitely read/write issues with solid state HD memory. :)

Competition; a good thing. Thanks for sharing that link. :)

On Lytro announces Illum light field camera article (348 comments in total)

Not sure I would spend $1,600 on this one despite finally looking like a camera (sort of anyway). :)

On Google applies for contact lens camera patent post (29 comments in total)

I can imagine the lawsuits when the power source destroys the eyes of those wearing these devices when those sources vaporize. :)

Saw a video on this one a few days ago. Very interesting technology. A gamechanger if they can make a car battery using this technology, but for cameras it would be cool too. The prototype that I saw looked, well, bulky, but I'm sure the finished product will be ergo. :)

On Judge strikes down fine against drone photographer article (131 comments in total)

Judge was right. What was reckless? If indeed one of these photo-drones physically caused harm, then they may have a case. I heard of no such injury. :)

On Sony Alpha 7R Review preview (813 comments in total)

And I thought My VLUX-1 was expensive. lol

Just hope I can find a replacement battery for my VLUX-1 soon. :)

Just noticed another thing about this pattern; it reminds me of a Hilbert space filling curve. Fuji may be doing some form of fractal manipulation for enhancing images possibly. :)

I would call it the Mondriaan sensor. A tribute to neoplastic artists everywhere. :)

On Hands-on with the Panono panoramic ball camera post (112 comments in total)

Why not just keep the images in the ball cameral an take the card out later. You have little control of the result anyway once the ball's thrown. I refuse to own a smart phone for instance, so this product won't work for me. Regardless, I rather have a check mini-copter and take arial photos for landscape work, but even that cost is in excess of what I'm willing to pay for. :)

Other then the weird looking dudes with their arms raised (lol), this is a fantastic way to capture panos. Guess the dudes can later be cloned out of existance. ;)

On Lytro adds 3D viewing capability to its photos article (46 comments in total)

The problem Lytro, indeed, all plenoptic cameras are they are too expensive and nearly useless other then for it's toy aspects. Until you can print images using this technology, the only folk that get any benifit maybe at all with the result are social media image sites and even there, it's limited. Give me a lytro that can print 8X10 @ 254 dpi and for under $400 that can run software in Windows or Linux, then I might byte (it's a digital world now). lolol

:)

Impressive to say the least; still no motivation to get one since I refuse to use a smartphone (personal choice). :)

Like the composition. :)

Definitely cool stuff. I guess the large pixels have it when it comes to both low noise and light gain. :)

In reply to:

Jim Radcliffe: I'm not a huge fan of using camera phones for photography but I think most of the negatives here are really missing the point.. Consider what was used to take these photos.. don't try to compare to a DSLR or high-end point and shoot.. just remember what was used.. and then it's pretty damn good.

I took one of these photos and ran a little noise suppression on it and it cleaned up very well.

Just remember.. it was taken with a camera phone and don't take it as a threat to your beloved _____________ (fill in the blank)!

Pretty amazing technology... and that is not to discount the skill of the photographer.. it just shows what can be done with a minimum of equipment.

Agree with you Jim; the technology is only going to get better too. :)
