I love it!

As an Ives/Apple fan, if I was filthy, stinking rich, I would have this!

On Pentax K-3 preview (961 comments in total)

This camera looks impressive. Does it one-up the D7100? On paper in almost every way!

Small correction: Isn't the D800 USB 3.0, but the D4 USB 2?

On Ten items you should have in your camera bag article (288 comments in total)

The ultimate multi-use item is a SPACE BLANKET:

- A gear separator more useful than the foam things
- Biggest reflector you can get
- Save your life if trapped in the cold
- Waterproof as poncho or cover

naththo: Okay enough of defamation and flaming at Adobe. Its not worth it. It does not help when you do this. They can sue you for serious defamation as I see some of serious defamation going around. Some of what you said are so untrue. The truth is, its Adobe's fault for not keeping their system secured for your sensitive information like payment processing and customer profile information. It got nothing to do with software seriously. Fffsss I assume you haven't worn glasses to read properly what they said. It is to do with payment department and the customer information department that they did not keep it secured and its their fault. It hasn't said anything to do with software you are running.

Also it is customer responsible to keep their computer secured before using internet and purchase online by having a completed security suite installed as well. It is your responsibility too. Not just Adobe responsibility.

@naththo That is the weakest defense I've ever heard. Their behavior and ineptitude is indefensible.

kodachromeguy: Old-fashioned small notebook so that you can write notes on where you took photographs. This is useful for filling out the EXIF fields later.

I just snap a pic with my iphone. GPS location included.

Covet, yes!

Buy, no.

mckracken88: gah, no more AFGHAN GIRL. She's startled enough..from that camera shoved in her face ;)

also: most National Geographic pictures look kinda funny-surreal, what with their overuse of contrast and candy colors.

That's probably a better name. Googling "Understanding Explosure" prompts Google to autocorrect it to 'exposure'.

Good luck! I'm gonna tweet that link.

InTheMist: Wow, I can imagine that 072 (bubble sculpture in half shadow) is a very challenging dynamic range.

True. That's a nice one too. Nice performance! It's not for me, but you have to give credit where it's due.

makofoto: The test should include the jpeg, because some folks say that the Fujifilm jpegs are so good it really isn't necessary to shoot raw. Perhaps compared to what was available up to now. THIS one looks excellent!

@Jesper Only with the Fuji X-series. The JPEGs are just so ... nice!

I live and die by Raw when shooting my DSLR.

Good point tho, even if you didn't see the link. I shoot Raw + JPEG and usually end up deleting the Raw unless some extreme shadow or highlight recovery is necessary.

I don't know, though, I prefer the Adobe rendering in about 50% of the examples above. Certainly not enough difference to switch from the excellent Lightroom workflow - and it pains me to say that after Adobe's recent CC games.

Watch the video. Much better images than those overprocessed (hiding faults?) examples here.

It's worth noting that the video shows thousands of dollars of studio lighting equipment used. No wonder they're good.

InTheMist: Amateurs criticizing NG photographers. Heh, that's a hoot. Armchair quarterbacks.

I bought the issue as soon as I saw it at the news stands. Sure to be a classic.

@Kevin Chao I know it's not international, but Armchair Quarterback is more fitting here because it allows the following conditions:
1) never having done it yourself
2) never needing to leave your chair
3) the ability to criticize even years after the event

;)

Excellent.

Since you've fixed the iPad bugs and cracked down on flamers, I've actually enjoyed coming here again.

@DesmondD Unfortunately, it's not in my copy (Germany).

P.S. Loved your book "Understanding Explosure".

In reply to:

cgarrard: First thoughts- wrong focal length for shooting portraits (distortion of faces etc), lots of post processing covering up flaws in the camera that would stand out normally.

That's what hit me immediately when looking at these shots, just being honest guys.

I know digital camera markets are declining but I don't think beating the camera phone drum is the way of the future. There are other ways.

Carl

My EXACT first reaction!

Distorted headshots and post processed to hide flaws.

On Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS review preview (137 comments in total)
In reply to:

57even: All these comments about Fuji AF. Really? They pretty much fixed it.

If you still have a problem, perhaps you're just not the sort that's prepared to learn how to use a camera.

Foolproof is for fools.

I carry an X100s every day, and no, you're wrong, Fuji is slow.

But if you're patient, the results can be excellent.
