On article What's missing? Ming Thein on the state of mirrorless (751 comments in total)
In reply to:

NoMirror99: Thein has some points. But, his credibility, for me, is destroyed by his ignorance about Sony cameras. Why on Earth didn't he RTFM before he wrote. However, I don't doubt that he is a talented photographer. Almost everyone posting here says he is. I have't seen his work, but I'm willing to accept that as fact because the members of this forum as a group have credibility.

He HAS used them all and "each of these (Sony) cameras suffered from significant shortcomings"

belle100: Leather - Dead animal skin that tends to mold in humid weather. Don't want any of that near my gear. Yuck. I prefer easy maintenance materials like nylon or polyester that are treated to be non-stick and resistance to dust and moisture.

Are you serious, or do you have a political agenda?

Leather wears and looks awesome and lasts a long time. I've worn through five canvas or nylon bags but my leather bag just keeps looking better and better. I carry it every day on foot and train.

On article A lot to Leica? Hands-on with the Leica SL (Typ 601) (1512 comments in total)

Does not get my blood pumping.

Some bile in the back of my throat, sure.

cheetah43: What 28mm sees is not what the eye sees looking straight ahead. Why do people rave about a 28mm lens with all its distortions? Yes, you can do this, that and the other post-processing. It should be click, post to the printers, and no faffing around with the image.

@DStudio

Very poetic and well said.

Still I dislike the 28mm field of view.

In reply to:

mononk: I certainly do not appreciate the type of pictures you post on these so called "real world sample gallery". Would you publish any of these shots in your SHOW CASE. Come on guys, work a little harder, you are supposed to be pros.

I quite liked the images.

SKPhoto12: With all due respect, would it not be possible to take pictures that don't look like they were taken by and for the Adams Family?

You shoot what's in front of you. Looks like some areas that have fallen on tough times. Soulful. I like them.

Maybe you would prefer the D810 shots my Miss. Aniela.

On article MIT proposes new approach to HDR with 'Modulo' camera (115 comments in total)
In reply to:

forpetessake: "MIT proposes new approach" -- LOL, as many people already mentioned here, this idea has been discussed for years, there is nothing new about it.
The other ideas that were discussed are: global shutter -- multiple shorter exposures instead of a single longer one. Then, multiple switching load capacitors -- I think some company already implemented it. Then, pixels with different sensitivity (at the expense of noise). And probably more.
What the DPR should have mentioned though, is that all those approaches extend dynamic range by proportionally lowering the sensor base ISO, they can't improve the dynamic range at the same ISO -- the only way to do the latter (at the same CMOS) technology is to increase the sensor size.
There is a limit how low ISO can go before it becomes impractical. If say, ISO 25 is the lowest people can be interested in, compared to base ISO 100 now, then it means any of those methods can increase dynamic range by maximum 2 stops.

I'm not being completely sarcastic. But I do want this in my effing camera.

Ok, great. Everyone had the same idea.

Now, can someone please put it in my EFFING camera?

k tnx.

Very nice. Thank you!

I like the 'like' button too.

Any plans to roll this into User Galleries as well?

On challenge VSCO FILM 04: Slide Films (1 comment in total)

I got VSCO so that I don't have to spend time in Photoshop - and yet, I have to use exactly the side-by-side that you want.

Great turnaround at Olympus. Keep up the good work.

On Connect post 500px launches redesigned iOS app (11 comments in total)

500px,

You do have UI/UX designers on staff, right?

1) Where are my groups in the app?
2) Why do you keep making images smaller and tags bigger? Once I've found the image I want to see, tags are superfluous.
3) The main concept behind the 'flow' was to see images people I follow liked. Where is this now? I couldn't find it.
4) Speaking of groups, why can I only "Fav" and not "Like" in the website?
5) Also on the website, there should only be two consistent views: the image large and the image with info. Be consistent. I've lost count of how many inconsistent UIs there are.

Thanks

I enjoy the stories of the people behind the camera as much as the images. And I mean that in a good way. Keep it up!

Lovely portfolio, Sarnim.

On article Flickr brings back Pro account option (74 comments in total)
In reply to:

ManuelVilardeMacedo: It appears regular users won't get unlimited storage anymore. And they'll get ads. Which is a cunning way of getting people into subscribing Pro accounts. Oh well.
On the other hand, subscribers who had Pro accounts before Flickr gave unlimited storage were basically paying to get the same as those who had free accounts, which was not right. As the old saying goes, two wrongs don't make a right.
The benefits of being a Pro user are now: 1) unlimited storage; 2) highly fastidious stats (irrelevant); 3) free shipping on Flickr photo merchandising (US only: can't be bothered); 4) ad-free viewing (which is good: ads can be annoying); 5) 20% discount on Adobe CC (meh!); and 6) the subscription fee will remain unchanged for two years (I assume it will double after that period). Better start thinking about a website; chances are it'll be less expensive...

I understand the frustration of getting less, but has anyone ever come close to the 1TB limit? It's JPEG after all.

In reply to:

66GTO: This would then make me ask, what is better than Flickr? PBase seems to have been left by the wayside. What is the better solution?

Is Smugmug also a social network where you like/fav images and friend people? Never used it. I thought it was a blog or website hosting thing.

In reply to:

Jonathan Siegel: Flickr is still, in my opinion, the best photo sharing service on the net. There are a lot of other services that have a similar offering, but their UX and UI are dated and most are not mobile friendly. I was saddened when the Flickr community fought back against the changes to the interface and service, a lot of complaining. When you put the old version of Flickr side by side with the latest version, there really is no contest. The latest version of Flickr is a really slick design with good support. Flickr was the gateway for me to really start learning more about photography and meet other photographers to learn from them. It's so much better now than before.

Yep The usability of 500px is a disaster in comparison with an inconsistent UI.

There are several different ways that photos are presented, with at least three different places that you have to click to 'like' or 'fav'. And one view you can only fav, not like.

It's ridiculous. And don't get me started on the app, where you can't even view groups.
