PedroMZ: One should bare in mind the huge carbon footprint of this type of photography. Fortunately few people can afford it.

It appears we are about to be squished by the carbon foot.

EcoR1: Aarrg. Read some commments below and I'm just astonished by the ignorance of some people. This Panasonic lens will gather as much light as any f2.8 full frame lens when mounted on the full frame camera. There is no debate. There is no "other" truth. If you think otherwise you are wrong, and that's it . If you wan't to consider the possible size/weight benefits for any full frame lens, the only comparison must be made for the 24mm f2.8 lens. That's it people.

Twong is right. It gathers more light per square millimeter, the same amount as a full frame f 1.4 lens. That's what matters as far as shutter speed goes. Full frame only gathers more light in that it covers a larger area.

noirdesir: I always wonder how good the centering of such add-on lenses can be. You probably would need micrometre accuracy (1/1000 of base lens diameter) for that not to negatively affect IQ.

True, but these are phones, so it doesn't matter.

Happy about the K1 profiles. Now I just need the update to appear on the CC downloader.

Well, my guess is that the remaining problems will eventually be fixed through software updates.

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? (142 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 (117 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.

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.
