On Ricoh announces 'HD' update to Pentax DA Limited primes article (198 comments in total)

Such beautiful lenses. If only they made a full-frame camera and full-frame lenses. If Pentax can make aps-c and medium format, why not full-frame?

dengx: "The good news also is that future upgrades will be included for free :)"

Hmmm

This may signal the end of these products. After all of the price cutting, they may discover that it's not at all profitable to develop and support them. They were built based on a very different price structure. I'm afraid they may disappear in the same way that Google Reader is about to disappear.

Stalyon: Did your free download email come from nikcollection-noreply@mailus.niksoftware.com address? Just making sure this was legit.

Yes, that's the address it came from. It is legit.

On Canon EOS 6D preview (1035 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rory Lambert: Secretly the 6D is a PRO camera! The marketing is aimed to increase sales among non-pros, but pro shooters (and smart students) will snap these things up!

Two major markets that people are ignoring here: Serious Photo Students and High-End DSLR Video shooters.

1. Serious Photo Students (or self teaching photographers). Not just any photo student, but the ones that buy a beaten full frame body so they get their image quality and still have money for prime lenses. Lighting is natural or off camera flash. Think landscapes and portraits.

2. High-End DSLR Video shooters. Full Frame image quality is key. When a 50mm lens on a full size chip leans towards telephoto you tend to hate it if your 14, 20, 24, and 35mm primes loose their powers.

Focus is 99% manual. I could care less if the thing can auto focus at all. The amount of pro video work shot on the MKII would shock people. I'm talking Discovery Channel, Nat Geo, BBC, commercial work ect.

Lower-megapixel + full chip = IMAGE QUALITY.

I see a lot of wedding videographers using both the 5DII and the 7D. The 6D will likely offer them better high ISO performance than either of those cameras.

In reply to:

Francis Sawyer: I wish Canon would make 35mm and 50mm pancake lenses on par with the 40mm. The 6D with a pancake wouldn't be too big.

The 40mm is half-assed: It's not a normal lens OR a wide-angle lens on either APS or full-frame.

The 40mm pancake is a wonderful lens and a great addition to the Canon system. It is a true normal lens, unlike a 50mm. The small size and high image quality makes it a joy to use.

On VSCO Keys offers shortcut to Lightroom efficiencies article (65 comments in total)
In reply to:

MichaelEchos: The price is crazy. I could see Lightroom implementing this.

Speaking of the X-Keys ... what a nightmare to program it. I bought two of them. Very expensive ($175) for the Pro model. The first one failed outright; second one is now buggy too. And you have to program it ... I once spent the better part of a day doing that. Absolutely NOT a solution I would recommend.

On VSCO Keys offers shortcut to Lightroom efficiencies article (65 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marc Lorenz: It seems weird on the first glance but after seeing the video it looks really useful and may improve my main gripe with lightroom, which is slow navigation for processing a series of images.
I wish it would be built into Lightroom and I wish they would kill of the stupid separation between library and develop mode and improve performance when browsing images.

"... built into Aperture"? Which keystrokes will deliver a quick exposure, contrast or color adjustment in Aperture?

On VSCO Keys offers shortcut to Lightroom efficiencies article (65 comments in total)
In reply to:

WT21: I want, but this is a bit silly in price. How about $60?

I'm going to use the trial, though. That would be huge if I could key stroke my way through quick levels adjustment.

Of course it would be huge. That's the idea. Now imagine photographers who edit, say, 30-40 weddings in a year, each wedding over 1,000 photos. I haven't tried the product yet, but the need for it is obvious. People are talking about the shortcuts in Lightroom ... but there ISN'T one for a basic thing like an exposure adjustment (or white balance or contrast, etc.). That's been sorely missing from Lightroom from the start.

In reply to:

MichaelEchos: The price is crazy. I could see Lightroom implementing this.

Everyone who is calling it crazy is unfamiliar with the needs of professional photographers who do a high volume of adjustments. For them, every bit of efficiency counts. And every bit of lost efficiency adds up. Over the course of a year, they do many thousands of mouse clicks. Keyboard clicks are far easier because there is no need for precise navigation with a mouse. Sure, Adobe could implement this into Lightroom. But the fact is that Lightroom has been out for years, through multiple versions, and Adobe has failed to add keyboard shortcuts for basic tonal adjustments. Photographers have been requesting this for years. I requested it on Adobe's product support forum. So I say "Bravo!" to third party developers who are trying to help us work more efficiently.

gl2k: Great idea because storage is soooo expensive. LOL
2 TB about €100

The lossy DNG sounds like a great idea! Storage isn't expensive, but it's not free either. I shot 250GB of Raw files in the last 3 days, and that's using a lot of mRAW. I already have dozens of hard drives taking up space, so I'm not eager to buy more of them.

Thanks for the video. I agree, that is a very elegant implementation. Very well done by Fuji.

In reply to:

Photoman: Lovely system, but why is these images of the body and lenses so under exposed? Maybe they didn't calibrate their big bright moniter? Rookie mistake.

These under-exposed images are a strange problem for a camera company to have. They need to provide better ones asap.

Nothing exciting since the 5DII? Then you must have missed the 5DIII which addressed just about everything professional users asked to be improved in the 5DII.

xjuanx: Awesome!! Love shooting with a box with less buttons, more deep diving menus, and touch screen. A true photographer's tool to capture moments.........

Sorry to say its not all about IQ. Im sure a floor room display at a Best Buy will generate enough sales from soccer moms and dads. Which is sad to say, the bulk on Canons income comes from these days.

The perfect mirrorless camera Canon's bean counters can produce. Its kinda sad to see how out of touch Canon is, as a leader in the industry.

So you claim they will sell a lot of these cameras to their primary market ... and yet they are out of touch? I'm not sure how that contradictory logic works.

It seems they are very in touch with the camera market at many levels, producing everything from the little point & shoots up to the 1DX, responding to a vast variety of photographic needs, and selling a heck of a lot of cameras and lenses.

Sad to see a leader in the industry "out of touch"? Look again. And if you want a camera with more buttons, they make that too.

In reply to:

Octane: Awesome that a manufacturer spends a lot of time and effort to make an 'old' camera much better and provides it as a free upgrade via software. I hope this will set an example!

Renewing interest in a product by improving it, for free, is somehow bad and to be criticized? To people who feel that a camera company selling cameras is somehow a bad thing: Get a life already, please!
