On Adobe celebrates 25 years of Photoshop article (352 comments in total)

Been using and updated photoshop since version 2.0.1, but CS6 is the end of my road. Not going CC.

On More things we found cut in half (CP+ 2015 edition) article (140 comments in total)

I don't think that Zeiss 85 becomes a 42.5. I think it's still an 85, but now it's an f2 because it gathers half as much light.

Thomas Kachadurian: Another set of Canon products that I won't buy. Oh Well.

Is that what cameras are to you guys, toys? I do this for a living, they are very much like tools.

Why would a second job make me want to buy products I don't need?

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 Review preview (436 comments in total)

I find this a good balanced review. When she give a somewhat subjective evaluation she says why. Agree or don't agree but it's out there to see.

It's a crowded field and she's right the M43 sensor is getting a little long in the tooth.

It's a great camera, with great lens support. It just isn't the bee's knees.

The question isn't do people buy magazines. The question is do advertisers buy space. The answer is less and less every day. If I sell a canon camera why should I buy an ad in SI when I know I can buy an ad on DPR and get directly to my customers.

joe6pack: I still don't keep 99% of my RAW files. But I guess if my trip cost a few million dollars, I will keep them all.

You are a fool not to keep raw files. Storage is cheap, and you never know what will come. If an age is worth keeping at all, the raw file is the file to save.

On Panasonic DMC-CM1 to go on sale in UK article (161 comments in total)
In reply to:

Thomas Kachadurian: Why no USA? I think I'd give it a serious look.

Carrier Subsidies are going away, or at least optional. When an iPhone is $900, $1,000 for a camera, a real camera, with a phone inside it, doesn't seem so crazy.

I meant I would give the phone a serious look. But the USA is a serious number of customers

I will say, though, that #13 rocks my world.

I looked at lots of these while they were going up and I have to say the DPR staff left some of the best on the cutting room floor.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 Review preview (896 comments in total)

I like that Richard has clearly outlined the things he doesn't ;like about the camera because it allows me to see how he's making the assessment. As it happens, for me, most of them do not matter or are on the plus side. I hate touch screens. I never use flash. I shoot 95% of the time from 24-70. I don't ever shoot JPG . . .

But he's right about the Ai and Filter buttons. What a waste. I'll never use either function and I can't make them do anything else. Maybe we'll get that in firmware.

I also agree that is a great camera that is a joy to use.

On First Hasselblad in space goes to auction next month article (84 comments in total)
In reply to:

hypo: What a wonderful juxtaposition DPR came up with. Side by side were the first Hasselblad in space up for auction and the golden Nikon.

Both fabulously exotic and expensive.

Neither good value for money (as a camera).

But if you could win one of them in a competition, which would you want to have?

No, it's a piece of history now, now a camera.

I'd love to have the space blad.

On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1658 comments in total)

Canon needs to learn it isn't the king of the hill in innovation, and crying wolf is doing more to make them look like they are struggling to keep up.

I love my Canon cameras and lenses, but they aren't getting much new money out of my pocket because their 4 or 5 year-old offerings are still meeting all my needs. I have things I would like to add, but as of yet, Canon isn't producing them.

I see a great lens. Great color, good dynamic range and a JPG engine that I just hate. My guess is people are blowing these 13mp images way past 1:1 and then freaking out.

I for one will not make my final decision on this camera until I get my hand on come raw files that I can play with myself.

These photos really show me enough to know I'm very interested in this camera.

Cal22: Go to the LX100 First Impressions Review where the lens design is to be seen (compared to the lens of the LX7). You can see there that Panasonic has changed the AA filter on the LX100's sensor: It's quite a bit thicker now!

We know lens design must be matched with the AA filter, otherwise sharpness in photos will be more or less reduced. The samples in the gallery now could make you think that Leica designed the lens not knowing of the AA filter in the LX100 has been changed. It's not really thinkable, is it?

I din't know. All I know is what I read about the panasonic version from their engineers. They both say leica, but perhaps leica redesigns the lens for their version, but I doubt it.

Leica doesn't design the lens. It was in a panasonic interview. Panasonic designs the lens with input and approval from Leica.
