On PicTricks offers cheap photo 'fixes' article (20 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.

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.

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: And.....here 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.
