On Windows XP is dead. Long live Windows XP 'Bliss' news story (111 comments in total)
In reply to:

budi0251: Still use WinXP on my Thinkpad R52 (Pentium m 1.8Ghz + 2GB DDR2), mainly because I can't get proper drivers for its display adapter in Win7.

And then some,

I use WinXP SP3 32bit for my desktop PC (AMD X2 3Ghz w/ 4GB of RAM) too.
Indeed I lost about half gigabyte of RAM.

Why is that?

Well, I do love simple UI and it simply works for me, to make or change file association, file search features, drivers, etc.
Currently most of the time the machine would run Photoshop CS6 with latest compatible ACR & DNG converter. I have no problem (yet) with latest DSLR Raw files.

Then some office stuff & web browser (Firefox), media player classic, and... that's it I think my main use of PC.

Dunno if in the future they would force people to use Photoshop CC or Lightroom 5 in order to open latest future RAW files, then I might upgrade to Win 8.1

You're not alone :D I still do all my work with XP. And then boot Win7 if i need to do something that requires modern OS. ... play Batman :D

My daughter emailed me yesterday and asked how do i change InDesign's file assosiation on Win7, when it trys to open in Illustrator. I said beats me. lol.

To me XP is like an old car: not everybody want to drive with a modern car. Some people drive with 50 year old cars, or even older yes?
Or ... i play drums, my drums are mostly from 1930's.

Ok, it's not the same but XP is not dead!

LiSkynden: Gone is the good old vari-angle screen!
... i would never buy a camera with such complicated looking flip out screen. How do you use it on portrait?

Lets hope they bring the old vari-angle screen back to normal G series now :D

About off axis, off centre screen, ... The vari-angle screen is lined with lens when you shoot portrait, what about tilt screen? Isnt it only on axis when you do landscape?
I always wonder how people shoot portrait with tilt screen, if not keep lens fixed. I mean when i do it with vari angle, i have the camera so that shutter button is up and if i now imagine where the tilt screen would be ... its off axis right? and i would be limited to shoot like it was fixed screen.
Sorry but that feels a lot more awkward than vari angle being off axis on landscape shooting.

Look at this pic

Thats how i would hold the camera when shooting portrait. Where do you put that tilt screen now when you have to shoot above head, or knee level, or even lower?

In reply to:

Steve Bingham: I simply set the scroll wheel to zoom in or out (preferences). Moving the mouse around to any area and scrolling the wheel I can instantly zoom in or out of that area. Works with a lot of the tools. I can't imagine anything faster.

Been around since Photoshop 1 (Mac) and 2.5 on PC. So there. :) Does it matter? NO

I was just gonna say the same. No need to press any keys or click any tools. Just scroll in/out.

Kind of sad from Nikon. Did they have more money and "won" the law suit or what?

On Sample Gallery: LG G2 smartphone images post (48 comments in total)
In reply to:

kocho: Can't view the gallery with Nokia 928 Windows Phone (latest software) with mobile browser. How ironic is that, being m.dpreview.com (as opposed to the full site). Will this be fixed?

Works just perfectly on iPhone 5 ... not so latest software. (6.1.4) Gallery opens smoothly and even the full size images open fast.

And saying that, I would say m.dpreview works better/faster on iPhone than the traditional website on computer (using the same connection both phone and computer). I would say the trad website is really slow and has been for quite some time.

In reply to:

michael2011: People criticize 32GB as "limited storage" for shooting RAW these days? How much memory do you put in *your* DSLRs?

Exactly. Wife's iPhone 5 (16GB) has now 70MB free space and i asked what are you gonna do about it. Nothing, she said, "you are".
"ok, can i delete these?"
"no"
"what about these? "
"no" ...

I wait till she comes and says "OMG i cant save anything on my phone anymore" :D

On Sony Xperia Z1 impresses in DxOMark Mobile Report post (16 comments in total)

Eventhough this is done by DxO i have to say that the "Video" part of the test should have AUDIO test too. I have seen, or should i say hear some really horrible audio on videos shot with really expensive and so called "good" smartphones, but no-one seem to care. Weird.

This is kind of same in really good P&S cameras too ... so called "enthusiasm" models. The audio just sucks.

LiSkynden: "8 frames-per-second for up to six shots"?
What good is 8 shots per sec if you can only shoot 6 times? :D Am i stupid or what is that about?

Just figured it out. ...if a car goes 100Km per hour, you can go 100 per hour but you can go like 5Km and say i drove 100Km/hour. lol.

Something like that yes. My comment was kind of embarrassing :/

On Canon's premium PowerShot G16 and S120 get minor updates news story (384 comments in total)
In reply to:

LiSkynden: No flip out screen, no Canon G16 for me. So disapointed. I dont get why they dropped it again (G15). Make up your mind Canon. Why not making one camera that always has flip out screen.? Why drop it and then put it back and then drop it again, and ... what?

@Jim i havent try G1X but wasnt it poor with maco?, and it has a lens cap. Lens cap: so like 19th century. P&S camera with lens cap: is no no!
