cgarrard: This is huge news. Huge.

It's not the size that counts, it's how you use it!

idefixx: what a boring "feel good" interview. other sites would list this under "sponsored content"

Actually, other sites would list this under "link to www.dpreview.com". Otherwise, it would be plagiarism.

After seeing slide 14, I have to go hide in my bed until I feel safe again.

aftab: I wonder how many units they will have sell to make this camera profitable.

The decimal point and comma are switched in different parts of the world. So, "fifty thousand" is written as 50,000 in the US, but as 50.000 in many other places. And Pi would be written as 3.14 in the US vs 3,14 in some other parts of the world.

papa natas: Well, I'll get hell back here from the teeming millions on account of what I think, and by the way, I NEVER write OMHO.. I'm not humble.
1- It's stupid to ass-u-me that we ALL have converted to 4K. That goes to whomever had the brilliant idea to post this video in 4K.
2- This Hurley guy, of which I never seen his work, may have or be rough talent. Then, I cannot help but to reminisce the Old talent: those guys such as Hamilton, Adams, Leidmann, Clarke, Newton, and the list goes on, who were issued from the Plastic Arts & Visual Media environment; then came to discover photography with MANUAL cameras.
They had to LEARN the trade the good old way: to master composition, f stop and shutter speed with a narrow window of 36 shots. Nowadays it will be a capital sin not to get a dozen of decent images out of 500 shots. It's like shooting fish in a barrel, mind you.
For these guys Bokeh wasn't an artistic expression.

Can I have a banana too?

thx1138: Poor choice of name for something that is supposed to repel everything. The Hoya Repulsion would have been more apt.

I call BS on the anti-fingerprint though, every company and their dog claims to have oleophobic coatings and none work worth a damn. Time will tell.

If you want a name that exemplifies the ability to repel everything, how about the Hoya Lutefisk? Or Hoya Congress, Hoya Kardashian...

I don't think I'd be able to fall asleep under a boulder, afraid it might move during the night and become my headstone!

On photo polar bear sleeping on ice floe in the Asleep (Nature) challenge (12 comments in total)

Why use a 300mm lens? The bear was asleep, you could have zoomed with your feet, right? ;) I'd suggest an 8mm fisheye next time for an interesting perspective :p

No, not the A7R2, these were shot with the R2D2.

redisred: Really bummed they changed the contrast engine, the main reason I used it was because I loved the look of the hue-shifting contrast tool they had before. Now it's doing a similar and annoying approach to what Lightroom does, I wish there was at least a way to choose old or new.

Well yes, if you edit the separate curves for each color channel differently. But it seemed redisred was talking about the basic Contrast slider.

Uwe GR: These guys have cheek. I am using C1 as a sidekick to Adobe Lightroom and DXO (plus other tools for handling raw photos), and to ask users for a 99€ update after less than a year of having bought a full license is a tall order. Will not upgrade, especially since reasons to use other software as well (face recognition, lens corrections, ...) are not addressed.

I love C1 Pro and have used it for years, but I'll wait to upgrade, mostly for the same reason I don't buy the latest smartphone upon release and I didn't immediately upgrade to Windows 10: I wait for the bugs to be worked out.

It looks like C1 Pro 9 has some interesting features, so I'll read their Professor's Blog, watch some webinars on the new tools, and then maybe get around to buying the new version around February or March.

redisred,

I don't understand your statement, and it has me curious. Are you saying that adjusting the Contrast slider in the Exposure tab also shifts the hue in CO8? What about using Curves to adjust contrast?

"It is perhaps because of such attention to detail that the UK has only historic cameras to show, and no current camera manufacturing."

A touch resentful?

Photo #8 is terrible. It's such a flat image.

On article Holga Digital camera project launched on Kickstarter (150 comments in total)

"The Holga Digital camera features original optics that are known for their dark corners..."

Did they just try to advertise heavy vignetting as a positive feature?

Smartphone.

This article isn't about you; it's about global camera sales. You, me, and most people visiting this site own cameras, but we're a minority. The majority use smartphones as their camera of choice now.
