On article Processor designer ARM acquires Apical (28 comments in total)
In reply to:

jkrumm: Olympus users, if they open the Olympus Viewer software, encounter Apical in the "auto tone correction" feature of the edit panel. Some kind of fill light algorithm that they license.

Yes, but for some reason the "auto tone correction" has always had the Apical logo right next to that part of the software, not by the auto gradation feature.

On article Primer: What is VR, and why should photographers care? (128 comments in total)

Reminds me of the shades horses used to wear. VR is kicking a set of dead horse glasses.

Every time I see a group of people wearing virtual reality headsets I get the impression that actual reality has reached a low point.

Lens seems to have some issues if you look at he woman. Some near-double edges, a sort of odd blooming. The guy looks fine.

The NSA has had these since 1952, but they used really small rolls of film.

On article Microsoft Lumia 950 camera review (116 comments in total)
In reply to:

AKH: Image quality looks fine for a phone.

Unfortunately recent phones from most brands uses the amateur 4/3 format (and 16/9) which is really disappointing.

Earlier models of the Lumia series also had the professional 3/2 format which could easily be added in software. Not sure why we can't have that format any longer.

Usually you can set the ratio to the one you like. There's nothing "professional" about 3:2 in itself and it's kind of crappy for portraits.

Gotta say, that was impressive. Awesome job.

That's the worst ISO 3 million performance I've ever seen.

StephaneB: Today is sad day.

This is the confirmation there is not any development planned for that outstanding software. Either the developers left or they've been fired already.

This thing is dead now. Expect it to follow Picasa.

Google is turning into a graveyard.

On article Seriously sharp: Sony FE 85mm F1.4 GM samples (263 comments in total)

Looks like it would come in handy for a dermatologist, especially combined with the A7RII.

On article Flickr makes Auto-Uploadr tool a Pro-account exclusive (97 comments in total)

Never saw much of a reason to use it, even as a "pro" user. I do like Flickr since it's place where people talk about the images. without getting into gear digressions.

On article UPDATED: CP+ 2016: shooting the Pentax K-1 in Yokohama (377 comments in total)
In reply to:

(unknown member): DPR had DNG raw samples for some time. Ricoh asked DPR to remove the files and there even was a separate post by DPR about that but it also was removed soon. Does anyone know what happened, why Ricoh had no problems initially and later decided to remove the files?

I'm sure many of us have them downloaded. I have a few. It might be because even with the embedded profile they still aren't fully supported by the software. Not sure.

On article UPDATED: Sony a6300 real-world samples (368 comments in total)

I like the water fountain shot in the hallway. Most of the outdoor action shots have a soft, "not quite" look to them. Almost appears to be shutter shock, but could also just be that focus did not catch, or the shutter was not fast enough, or lens IS did something weird....

On article Quick review: Nextbit Robin camera (44 comments in total)

I guess it's one of those inevitable ideas. Seems like a service that could go out of business too.

The camera looks not bad for a smartphone.

That really seems to help the greens. Love the look.

In reply to:

jkrumm: Barney, maybe you know the answer to this question. Does the K mount Sigma 35 Art lens cover the full frame?

If that's the case then Sigma still makes nine K mount DG lenses that will work on the K1, but the 35 1.4 is the only newish one. Good to know if considering the camera.
