I love light, colors, shapes... and I fell that almost anything in a mix of light and shadow, from the right angle, could be a great subject.

On Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM Preview preview (352 comments in total)

First impression from samples gallery: the images are not so good in terms of resolution, most of the images are looking soft, even at f5.6.
I download in full size few samples and I think the sharp and details are inferior even than on Canon 18-55mm lens kit. So all the advantages are the blur of the background on f1.8 (but I prefer the bucket of 85mm/1.8 or 50mm/1.8) and low light photos (but if the Q is low could be better or the same with the kit and high iso).
Just my opinion.... my first opinion, from first impressions article :).

Pointless Comparison

This is a plea to the lens geeks. Please do not start comparing the Canon lens with the Nikon one, it is pointless. The Nikon 200-400 does a great job for Nikon photographers and the Canon lens will do a great job for Canon photographers. Comparing the two is just pointless, as no one is going to change camera system to use this lens are they? No they are not, so please don’t fuel the silly Canon vs Nikon debate anymore, it’s not what this lens or this review is all about.

Nothing pointless, everything matter. But it is matter to one or to the other. At this class of price for a lens, you could buy a body like an accessories. In this case, the decision of buying can be think in the opposite way as for a cheap lens.

On Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction article (1879 comments in total)

1. Maybe, for the moment Adobe want to see users reaction. I think they could see it clear enough. If the Adobe will go in the cloud, they will be alone there.
2. Adobe is allready too big and forgot to manage costs. To grow up more, it is killing the cow: over-tax his customers. Next stop after the "cloud & Adobe-tax-policy" will be the fall. Too bad.

I think Adobe have a bad management and this is a crash strategy. They are giving a good chance to the other software companies. Nothing last for ever, not even Adobe.

I accept the dark lens because of the 20X Zoom in a compact camera.
But in a compact camera, NO PANORAMA MODE....?

I am much appreciating dpreview, but this time I am disappointing about them choice to show us this kind of "secrets", with no value at all comparing with other photographers tips&tricks.

totunu: Anyway, this is a solution just for the body, because many of the old lens are not designed for digital use. I have not experience with Nikon, but I have tested few old lens and an adapter for Canon. After testing, I see that the cheapest digital Canon lens, are delivering much higher image quality. After testing, I drop in a box all my old lenses and the adapter. All my hopes about reusing old gear is ended.

JCMello, my statment was to short and I need to bring some details: my old lenses are by Pentacon and other less famous makers, made in 1980 for M42 mount. No one of my old lens are Canon or Nikon. But even if the image quality was better, the manual focus of the old lens take to long for me, in most situation.

On Tori on the Tracks in the Perspective: Get Down! challenge (16 comments in total)

Compare with some other photos from this challenge, is not an impressive one.

It's something more like a kitsch. It is not "atmosphere", there is nothing special.
The boots, the girl, the railroad ... Not bad, but not excellent either.
