tupelo: Wow !! just like my 2 dollars app from google store !

Really? There's an app that can differentiate between subject and background and add a swirl only to the latter? ^^

rugosa: I always put my cat in the fridge also, she checks to make sure the light goes off when I shut the door.

Like, literally.

davids8560: Some people are saying a leading O/S manufacturer and maybe some government agencies are way ahead of Canon in subject tracking.

I don't think you got what he meant.

On article Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV Review (1601 comments in total)
In reply to:

ummario: I want to buy this camera, but I'm afraid Sony can release an updated camera before summer, and I do't want to buy a almost outdated camera. Does anyone knows if this will happen?

Is people happy with it?

The RX100 I was announced in June 2012.
The RX100 II was announced in June 2013.
The RX100 III was announced in June 2014.
The RX100 IV was announced in June 2015.

Just looking at this, it doesn't seem too far fetched to expect an RX100 V to be announced around June 2016.

With product cycles like these, you're almost always buying a camera that's "outdated" in a couple months. Then again, you can still buy the RX100 I new.

On article PicTricks offers cheap photo 'fixes' (22 comments in total)
In reply to:

straylightrun: How are they able to unblink a person if both their eyes are closed? Do they just photoshop a random persons open eyes in place? That's kind of unsettling.

I can only imagine that they use a different photo from a series of photos that shows the person with open eyes so they can copy and paste the eyes into an otherwise better photo.

They have an example on their website where dad is missing from a family photo and they edit him in. One would hope that they use an actual photo from the actual dad for this, too, and not a photo of some random dude.

On article Get more accurate color with camera calibration (265 comments in total)
In reply to:

Provia_fan: I see a saturation increase, which is what I would have done anyway in Photoshop if I was doing travel work, but I do understand the importance of calibration.

There's also a clearly noticeable shift in tonality from blue towards yellow.

In reply to:

Zephir 750: Honestly, can't see any difference between before and after calibration.

I would say that's almost impossible. Are you sure the mouse-over functionality works for you? (Cursor over the words "Before" and "After", not over the image itself.)

Still good enough for ebay.

Great work. Don't mind the petty and uncalled for criticisms (the ridiculous complaint about you cropping to a format different from your camera's sensor being a prime example).

In reply to:

Joshlovesphotos: we go again DPReview. You basically copy and pasted the advertising from Canon's press release onto your "Review" site. Only problem is, when you "review" something, isn't the point of the site to take another, more objective view of a product? You should call yourselves, DPAdvertisers.

Problem? Well, besides apparently being the only person here with an iq over 100, how about the fact that hydrogen-alpha light is NOT the true color of the cosmos. You know those galaxy and nebulae that you see on science shows in awe striking color? Yeah. Thats false color. That's not TRUE color, I don't care how subjective it is. The human eye does not see colors that way. This article's main title should read "CANON ANNOUNCES MODIFIED 60D (60DA) WITH STRONGER INFRARED SENSOR THAT PRODUCES FALSE COLOR IN ORDER TO MORE EASILY PHOTOGRAPH THE COSMOS".

So basically you just pasted NEWS and FALSE ADVERTISING onto your "review" site, that is just chock full of adverts really.

Vegasus: I am not a pro photographer, and every time there is a new SLR, i am only interest in low lights capability, dual memory cards, large screen with million dots and face detection for focusing.

and every time i visit this website i expect new product, but after 5 years knowing about this website,... i think those top manufactures making cameras is like buying a car... same car with lotsa variants. 4 cyl, v6 or v8 engine wif same body.

I see. You want dpreview to read your mind and then publish only content that you are interested in. Well, I'm afraid that's not going to happen.

This camera may be of no interest to you, but it is for others. Deal with it.
