'Using HDR software and processing tools is the only method a photographer has to deliver precisely what he or she witnessed at the time of an image capture'
I think this statement is key - the most important thing is to provide an accurate as possible image. Whether it takes some post processing or HDR or fill flash or something else, if the goal is to show a "true to life" image then the photographer should be using whatever tools he or she has.
On the other hand, if one is attempting to show the "photographer's impression", then as long as the image display is not presented as showing an accurate representation of what is being imaged, whatever "artistry" the photographer uses should be acceptable.
Consider - Ansel Adams is a renowned, respected, and highly esteemed American landscape photographer yet none of his images showed precisely what he was witnessing since he photographed in black and white.
rockjano: This is against LG.
LG's passive technology is gaining ground on an amazing way.
People willing go sacrifice some resolution on behalf of lighter cheaper glasses.
Especially important for people how already wearing glasses like me. The active glasses are real pain for me. Among the passive glasses there are clip on versions as well.
I agree - also, Vizio is providing passive systems at very aggressive pricing. Until "glasses free" systems become viable, passive allows one to get in on HD 3D at a reasonable entry point and uses essentially the same tech that we experience at IMAX and Real3D movies.
JohnWho: Dpreview -
Please read my post in the Sony Talk thread, here:
Don't know if it will make any difference to your evaluation, but I would appreciate any comments you might add to the discussion.
No, snapshot, it does not and you knew that per our posts last night.
That thread is a general discussion of the "comparison/review" while this thread
is specifically pointing out some possible discrepancies regarding the operational speeds of the Sony DSC-HX9V showing that the camera is very responsive in the most important aspects of Start-up time, Auto Focus time, Shot to shot time, or Mode change times.
thubleau3: Oh boy the Canon wins easy the Nikon only gets it award because of the Bias shown in reviews to the Nikon..they must be paying the bills.
Ah, maybe that is the rationale I was searching for in my previous post.
The Canon SX 230 HS gets an overall score of 77%.
The Nikon S9100 and the Sony HX9V got overall scores of 75%.
Why isn't the Canon the "winner" with the Nikon and Sony "co-runners up"?
Just trying to understand the rationale.
