On Google working on RAW imaging for Android post (84 comments in total)
In reply to:

brecklundin: Given the way Google feels about Adobe...what are the odds they will even use DNG instead my cash is on a new "Google Standard" RAW....beta of course....screw Google. Once they were fine then they got stockholders and stopped being inventive and customer oriented.

Blah.
Google is without any doubt still among the most innovative companies in the world.

Michael Ma: That would be awesome. Barrel distortion correction for face is just ridiculously bad on some phones. It would be nice if Adobe did a lens profile on the popular smartphones such as galaxy note 3, note 2, s4, s3, etc. That and the extra bit depth would want to me me actually attempt some descent photography.

You'll still be shooting with a ridiculously tiny sensor so you'll have some wonderfully noisy extra bit depth.

Goodmeme: I hope they provide option for Adobe raw which is already open-source AFAIK. Why reinvent the wheel, when a universal wheel has already been designed?

Hu? Compression?

Yay! So finally, we can process those crappy pictures made with microscopically tiny sensors in RAW! Long overdue!
I hope this doesn't break the overly abused retrovintagehipstercrapster filters.

Isedg: No touch screen supported is pain

It probably doesn't even come with some Pokemon game preinstalled.

Gosh, this is exciting!
I hope it does have some craptastic Instahipsterjunkfilters built in, to make a useless product even more useless.

OneGuy: You label it a gopro killer based on company marketing release? You are not connecting with me and I'm not connecting with you

It's labeled "MAY BE a GoPro killer".

Vegasus: Dear Dpreview, When you say, complicated wifi setup, is that the same with dos 6D?

So... It indeed IS complicated for you, Henry?

In reply to:

photofan1986: "Score" "Dxo"' blah blah...I really wonder how many of you really compared the actual IQ instead of just relying on Dxo figures. I also wonder how we managed to go out and shoot before Dxo!

Dxo is simply benchmarking and measuring equipment.
They don't need to be able to produce a good sensor, it's not their business.
And yes, Dxo IS the authority in terms of benchmarking sensors and lenses.

Do I make purchasing decision based solely on their results?
Of course not. Ergonomics are important to me. General image quality is, which includes a lot more than just the measurable resolution. But then again, I wouldn't buy a camera that scores a whole lot worse than its competitors either.

camerosity: The Nikon P7700 is much better, now the P7800 even better. Sorry Canon.

Unfortunately, Sony spanks them both.

On 'Rising Waters' documents Superstorm Sandy devastation article (29 comments in total)
In reply to:

inevitable crafts studio: strangly overprocessed, i didnt noticed sandy or any other storm in the US, they dont really cover that on the news in europe.
i guess its bad because of their wooden houses in the states.

from the photos it doesnt shock me, looks like some sort of highwater

Hu?
Sandy was covered everywhere in Europe. In TV, radio, newspapers, online.
I was in Austria, Germany and Hungary around the time Sandy hit the US and it was in the news everywhere.

On Niki Feijen's haunting images of abandoned houses article (218 comments in total)
In reply to:

peevee1: OK, I have finally finished through all 229 images. Are you kidding me? It is probably the best gallery of the decade. Sensationally good. What is better to document the decline of Europe?

I don't like HDR much, especially much HDR. But it is not about HDR or pixels - it is about the subjects, and they are sensational.

I partially agree. The actual images and even more the subject are amazing.
But the result are completely overdone HDR pictures which, to me, fail to display any soul because they look so artificial.

That will definitely save the world!

I don't mind HDR when it's employed to cover more stops when that's really necessary. But these images here all look over-artsy in a forced way. It's totally overdone, unfortunately.

An amazingly interesting country.
It's very high up on my list of places I have to visit.

Fixx: 3 is enough. Lightroom, Photomatix, Photoshop.

Photomatix?
HDR is as dead as hipsterrific filters are.

In reply to:

Juan M Molina: Maybe doesn't fit the same class, but I should consider Pixlr Express as the best alternative for Android. It has a HUGE library of filters, canvas and effects, and also sports a very useful array of "more classic' editing options.

There is a simpler version called Pixlr-o-matic, that may better fit in your list.

Pixlr is nice although I prefer Snapseed over Pixlr.
Especially in the non-hipster department where real basic editing takes place, it offers a lot more in my opinion.

Yet the actual point is the article's caption: It's about NEW apps.

On Fashion photography with the 41MP Nokia Lumia 1020 article (123 comments in total)
In reply to:

CyberAngel: Details are amazing!
You should sometimes - only once - do this with a DSLR like Nikon D800
and oversharpen, make it a little warmer and oversaturate slightly
THEN
claim it came from the Lumia 1020
and reveal the truth after all the haters and "Pro" have given their superior opinions. I would do it for the fun to see what happens afterwards.
Caveat: those who realize the truth might reveal the gig too early...

You can tell how well the details are from a sample downsized to 467x701 pixels?
Good work, you must be a pro!
