On Updated: Nikon releases Capture NX-D 1.0.0 software article (105 comments in total)

The one reason I might have gone back to Nikon after changing to Canon was NX2. It is a wonderful program to work with because of the control points,

Now...well now I will invest in more Canon lenses.

On Beyond the ordinary: Tim Dodd's Everyday Astronaut article (102 comments in total)

Frame three is interesting, the others are just ok imo.
Still it is easy to see that much effort went into this series.

You do realize that he is wearing a high altitude suit not a zero
atmo astronaut suit?

CameraCarl: Every time I see a drone flying overhead, I wish I had done better in my antiaircraft marksmanship in the Army

12 gauge #8 shot with a modified or full choke should get you started on your marksmanship badge.

Timely article which answers many questions a lot of us have about small quad photography/video.

Good going DP

spzphoto: "The first thing you'll notice here is that a) the Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 is noticeably sharper"
I only checked the wide angle and the 200mm shots but I can't see the Sony being sharper.
They both show a difference in sharpness from left to right with the sony being sharper on the left side and the Panasonic being sharper on the right but it's not a difference I would call noticeable.
Overall I would say they are about equal in sharpness.
Also on the 200mm shot the tower's sharp lines on the top look jaggy and pixelated on the Sony and much cleaner on the Panasonic.

I agree about the sharpness.

Just Ed: Just don't understand the appeal of the Nikon 1 system.
Had the V1 when it was discounted and while it seemed well made the images were just way to noisy for me, got rid of it. That was a 900 dollar retail camera with evf, the new one is 1200 sans evf.

Just doesn't work for me......

Tors, it just has wayyyyy to much noise for ambient room light situations. Often one can not use a tripod and a higher iso is needed. I say horrible results at even iso 400.

Imaginative, creative vision, great technical execution.....darn am at a loss for superlatives so will just say.....fantastic!

As a constructive suggestion, you might want to give a bit more thought into the backgrounds. Very nice effort though!

edit: I am ok with the background on 8 and 9.

On Apple to cease development of Aperture article (423 comments in total)

Have no investment in Aperture but it is still sad. Nikon will also, apparently, stop supporting its wonderful NX2 program. In Nikon's case they are offering a free albeit very basic editing program to replace it. Hope Apple's new program isn't just a basic editing program as well.

No, but it is still ugly.

LukeDuciel: This is HUGE.

For the 1st time, digital image sensor is not trying to approach film but transcend the whole concept with the inherent advantage.

Very insightful and I agree.

Martin87: Sony are true innovators when it comes to imaging technology. Unlike Canon.

Which is why Canon has almost no professional photographers using their equipment while Sony dominates that market with their ff and crop sensor bodies.

(sarcasm)

A couple of rumors this year about Canon developing new sensors possibly with foveon like technology.

I think everyone agrees that the technology is interesting if not the Sigma implementation.

fmian: 'If you mentally delete the word 'Canon' from every other sentence (and depending on which of our forums you frequent you may already be in the habit of doing this)'

This is a gross exaggeration. She only says the word Canon 4 times during the entire 7+ minute video. I realise it's over something trivial but aren't you supposed to be reporting without bias?

You are right. In fact she seems to undersell the Canon cleaning kit.

Ok, I learned to stop using an eraser on the flash contacts.
Rarely ever use lens cleaning fluid, but now wonder if it is just alcohol anyway?

Is he a mod on that Canon specific forum?

Tapper123: Interesting read.

That's why I respect Fuji a lot, even though I don't own a Fuji camera (yet). They don't seem to lie and obfuscate when there's a problem like Canon and Nikon have done, and instead admit it and then fix it. Every company should be as honorable as Fuji.

Try googling

"Fuji sensor complaints"

Note that there is a discussion right here on DP about them.

All cameras have some problem or another. Fuji has had its share.
