On #1 in France: Hands-on with DxO ONE article (222 comments in total)

At risk of playing the self-satisfied froggie, I'm quite happy that at least one company in my beloved country of croissants and pains au chocolat is able to do high-end electronics.

j900: Dehaze in CC but not in standalone lightroom, one month after release. Am I the only one feeling screwed? Adobe's getting nasty and they will lose the business of some.

@rrccad

Ok it's 1.5 months since April 21 - since you appear to like searching for little bugs could you tell me what does 1.5 change relative to 1? It's still an awfully short time, meaning that Adobe had the feature probably working prior to releasing 6.0. Nasty business practice if you ask me.

On Alpha dog: Hands-on with Sony a7R II article (1058 comments in total)
In reply to:

xsamie: For me, this camera is just mocking Canon and Nikon. It's telling them D810, D5s.. Is that all you got?

5 axis and 4k internal? It is adding insult to injury. And Sony is not even trying... Just wait to see the A7s2, their bestseller.

It reminds me of that time I raced against my daughter. She came in second but she was not even trying. I won, but only on the outside, I was broken. Of course I said that I was not trying either. lol

There comes a time when the student surpases the master. That moment has come. RIP Canon, RIP Nikon. Trouble times are ahead.

@Scotelly

50 MP is a 9% increase in linear resolution over 42 MP - Saying that 50 has an advantage over 42 is as relevant as saying (back in the days) that a 7MP camera was a noticeable resolution boost compared to a 6MP camera.

At this level of resolution I'm afraid there's not much that can be gained anymore - what will we get from a 100MP camera that we cannot yet do with a 50MP? Will lenses continue resolving? Ten years ago I remember some guy making a complex analysis ending up by concluding that 24MP was the sweet spot - pretty much spot on if you ask me.

This article is not very well targeted - the obvious answer to the question it raises is "No". Apple expects the advanced Aperture user to move to LR (and so does Adobe), period. And honesty it's not a serious loss, LR has for the most part been more advanced, more complete, and for a long time pre-app store even far less expensive than Aperture.

The more relevant article given the target market would cover whether the average iPhoto user will be happy with Photos, and here the answer is a resounding "Yes" - you get your ol' iPhoto in a brand new interface, leaving behind the less than useful stuff and adding essentials from Aperture.

Rooru S: On picture no. 12...are those old ladies rejecting a picture? If so, it's quite rude to publish this. (Or even taking it)...although this is a close call...you don't see their faces so there is no direct harm aside from the awkward moment of taking the picture without their permission (if permission was asked).

agreed - stolen moments do not belong to a portfolio like this - very unprofessional compared to the rest, and the picture itself does not have a particular photographic quality - no composition, no faces, no real element of graphical interest, not even a story apart from the obvious fact that these ladies did not want to be shot. I don't see why it's been put here.

ecube: Cloud? Why give control of your files? I have two 1-½ terabyte, USB portable drives about 10% larger than a cigarette pack. One in my computer bag, another a back-up that stay at home. No need for on-line connection to access my files.

@BeaverTerror, it looks like you have data loss terror. Myself I'm running the dual drive routine since 12 years on several (3+) machines, and haven't lost a bit let alone a byte, fingers crossed...

In reply to:

Fish Tank: PLEASE do not take this as a Sony fan-boy rant - I graduated over to SONY after getting entrenched in/used to the Minolta system, and quite appreciate all cameras for their own merits - but this is a serious question. Are any of you Canon users disturbed by the lack of care Canon seems to have for things even as simple as the rear view screen? How long has Canon been using the flush-mount viewfinder/screen? I own the a77, and find the multi-hinged screen a pure joy to work with, and though some may call it unnecessary, one really can't say that unless you have used it. Even a simple flip down and around screen that is offered on many compacts and P&S cameras is extremely useful for overhead shots, or foot-level shooting (and of course the nauseating selfies). As an outsider it seems that Canon is doing the least amount it can for its users based even on that ONE simple bonus feature. I look at Canon bodies and I see "good-enough" thinking, not "forward".

@armandino @kepdiver

my point with hobbits and foot-level shots was a joke, of course, based on the alleged small size of hobbits. Phew such a pain to at least try to do some humour in a context of brand fanatics...

In reply to:

Richard Franiec: Is nobody getting the hint that the main appeal of new 5D is an ultimate (unmatched yet) resolution of the sensor, improved color rendition, fantastic AF in one package?
Bitching results in wasted time only. Trying to understand and taking an advantage of the development require some effort and most likely then not, this approach could be more rewarding.

The problem here is that this unmatched resolution may be matched by the competition within a few months, and that the competition will beat the DR.

Josh152: Wow. When the D810 and A7R successors with the new high res Sony sensor come out this is going to look even more overpriced and silly than it already does lol.

Yeah sonyalpharumors has the high MP Sony E-mount coming a few weeks after CP+. Not going to be especially cheap though according to their report. Might still be cheaper than the 5Ds though.

hobbits with Oly systematically get foot-level shots better than pros with Canon.

On 2014 Readers' Polls: The results are in! article (375 comments in total)

Wow looking at the comments it's almost unbelievable that so many have failed to grasp that the entries from this poll are winners from the previous polls. So much whining about brand X not being there.

Five Powershot Compacts in one draw! And to think that some here thought that Canon was asleep at the wheel and then: BAM!! Five Powershots!!

Canon is on fire! What will they do next? Release an all new eos1250d with a 20mpix sensor... imagine that and the faces of Nikon's and Sony's CEOs... that would be huge!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go Canon, Go!

I'd say yes it is sarcasm
