Downloaded a Trial version of the Express version and it crashes whenever I try to edit an image.

No thanks. I'll stick to ad-free SmugMug with it's much better user interface and great help staff.

There are many errors in the DPreview specs. Best check the Olympus site for the correct specs.

On Olympus USA announces XZ-10 enthusiast compact article (45 comments in total)
In reply to:

Combatmedic870: Costing more then the LX7 is a non starter(LX7 is $299). I dont see the point.

I would take the LX7 over this anyday, unless it really is that significantly smaller.
The sensor on the LX7 is a 1/2.0 vs 1/2.3, so not much a difference. but the lens is much faster.

Yes, the LX7 is a steal now. I believe the LX7 sensor is a larger 1/1.7" (7.44 x 5.58 mm), not 1/2.0. And the lens is faster at the short end at f/1.4. I prefer Olympus colors to Panasonic but the LX7 is a great camera.

HUH? Where is AfterShot Pro? I can't believe they left it out entirely. Is DPR playing favor to the "big names" in RAW conversion?

ivan1973: Its the ugliest tough camera in the world, no doubt. I do not want anyone to say, "hey, look at that ugly thing he is using".

I don't care how ugly it may be as long as the image quality is good - good for this type of P&S anyway. The f/2 lens and interval shooting are nice to have.

Supposed to be available at the end of February.

On Fujifilm X20 Preview preview (201 comments in total)

Finally, a decent viewfinder and it looks like it takes 52mm filters directly - unlike the G15. Bigger sensor than the G15 and probably MUCH faster AF and shot-to-shot times. Let's hope the IQ is exceptional also.

On iPhone 5 vs. iPhone 4S: Image comparison article (94 comments in total)

Both look fine to me. Apple says the 4s and 5 cameras are identical. I'd rather have the iPod Touch with the 5MP camera. Better for hiking, biking, running and travel photos. No stupid phone to answer.

The new iPod Touch with its 5MP camera is much more interesting to me. I can jog, walk, listen to podcasts or music and also take pictures w/o having to answer a phone call. I don't have a smart phone and don't want one ---- and get off my lawn!! :)

On Corel announces PaintShop Pro X5 article (62 comments in total)
In reply to:

EmmanuelStarchild: There is still one thing that would keep me from buying this as my image editor: Color gamut. Still no Adobe RGB, Photo-Pro, or LAB?

Oh and one other thing, there is no mention if it will support Canon RAW files? Hopefully someone can answer this.

X5 does support the Canon S100 RAW files. I just downloaded the trial.

On Corel announces PaintShop Pro X5 article (62 comments in total)

I got an email from Corel offering X5 for $59.99 as an upgrade (I have X4 now.) Will X5 replace AfterShot Pro? Rumor has it that AfterShot Pro may die a slow death. AfterShot is the best RAW converter for the money and much faster and easier to use than LightRoom. I hope ASP stays around. Doubt I'll give X5 a try until they drop the upgrade price.

The more I look at this entry from Canon the more I think they will sell them by the boatload - to the average person looking for a travel/wildlife superzoom to take on vacation. It's got all one needs for bright light shooting and it's smaller and cheaper than the competition. Sure it doesn't shoot fast, but as Ghandi said, "There's more to life than going fast."

Since I don't have a cell phone (Can you make call with this?) maybe this will push me over the edge to join the 21st century.

Hey, is that the HOLLYWOOD sign I see in the background? Dang. I knew there weren't no rockets on Marz.

On Corel releases Service Pack 1.0.1 for AfterShot Pro article (41 comments in total)

AfterShot Pro plays nicely with the Big Boys like LR and Aperture. Runs fast and doesn't require cataloging. It's a steal for the price compared to LR.

Early adopters are my friends - they find the bugs and get the FW updated when necessary so the rest of us can avoid the heartache associated with the "bugs."

This "camera" is just butt ugly. The designer should stick to designing trash dumpsters.

WB850?? The WB750 was announced months ago and still isn't available.

The GX1 makes me love my XZ-1 all the more. Better luck next time, Canon. You've been resting on your laurels for way too long.
