On Phase One's Capture One Pro 8.2 software now available article (76 comments in total)

will it actually load in TIFF files yet? from scanned in negatives. Earlier versions couldn't handle something as simple as that (Windows Paint manages it fine!) which put me off using it.

excellent advert for his triggers but lets see the several hundred he binned to be left with these lucky ones.

On Astropad turns iPad into drawing tablet for Mac post (117 comments in total)

"Astropad turns THE iPad into A drawing tablet for THE Mac"

The continued mangling of the language carries unabated. You would think people who claim to be journalists would have the basic understanding of grammar.

BeaverTerror: The first as of yet unreleased products to become available will be the 90 and 16mm lenses, not the teleconverter. Did the writer of this article even look at the map?

your bizarrely low grasp of English seems to have failed you

"The chart released indicates that a 1.4x teleconverter will be the first of the new products to become available in the second half of this year"

the important bit being "first of the new products" this is an article about those new products. Im sure even one with as little a grasp of the language as you can work the rest out. Or maybe not. *shrug

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (2344 comments in total)

Any idiot can just keep stuffing pixels onto a sensor. The sony sensor still makes this one look like the joke that it is.

Hugo808: The mega pixel wars are still going? I thought everyone had grown up and realised that more MPs don't mean a better picture - just a bigger one.

Still, I suppose there's only so many increases in ISO quality or focus points you can make to entice people to buy the new models so it's back to the old standby. I'm sure enough people will fall for it to make it worthwhile.

Computer manufacturers must be rubbing their hands together with glee though, my creaking old Windows 7 machine wouldn't like processing RAW files from this...

i think a lot of people do.

Esign: Gloomy, boring, predictable – except for the horse, but this shot is unbalanced and should have been cropped and the horse placed slightly to the right of a vertical center line. Don’t mind the backgrund, this is a horse portrait.

thats the generic comeback from every knuckle dragging armchair nobody on here. kudos to you.

how lucky we are on DPR to have so many world leaders in photography who can add their sage knowledge to these threads.

LionelA: In the 80s 90s commodore and atari fanboys where always discusing whose the best while PCs (which were horrible computer compare to the others) took the business sector then the homebase one, both atari and commodore went out of buisness....remainds me of sony, canon, nikon etc...always discusing whose the best without knowing that apple and samsung are taking over the market....first the cellphone market then the camera one indeed......and lets get real as tecnology moves on it wont get any better for camera companies

in 20 years my D800 will still take great pictures (if it hasnt broken), the games on my Amiga A1200 are a bag of crap.

more tired old small sensor bodies. Don't Fuji realise they might have enough of them on the market now?

On Medium well done: Two takes on the Pentax 645Z article (245 comments in total)
In reply to:

The Davinator: I've been enjoying my 645Z for a few months now. It is a fantastic tool that gives 4x5 film a serious run for its money. Once you get used to its files for landscape, 35mm FF seems puny in comparison.

i shoot 5x4 and youre talking crap

Dan Wagner: Well, this sucks -- tried to submit my photos -- and although there seems to be a post made less than one hour ago I get the following message: "An error has occurred The requested thread has reached the maximum number of allowed posts. Please contact us if you have any questions.?"

Of course there is no link to contacted them. Anyone know what's up?

yep, thanks to some talentless snapper who filled it up.

is there no submission limit or can we just spam the thread with endless tedious snaps of the same person just at a slightly different angle?

On Lomography adds Lomochrome Turquoise film to lineup article (90 comments in total)

£7 a roll! ah those poor tragic hipsters. I'll carry on buying film for £1 from my local pound store and if i desperately feel the need to get my images looking that crap, i'll just adjust the tone sliders in Lightroom.
