On 25/1.4 Studio Portrait (stopped down) in the Portrait shot with M4/3's challenge (10 comments in total)
In reply to:

yabokkie: sometimes I use somewhere between f/5.6 and f/8 on 35mm format, and I know some people use f/11 but these are nothing near f/10 on 4/3"!

It is a studio shot and i was too lazy to change the power of the strobe becaus ethe setup was for a full body shot, this is why i stopped down to F10. The bg was originally blurd the way it is, at F10 even though i was very close to the face the bg could not be oof like this in the real world.

On Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction article (1879 comments in total)

I have a question that imo was not answered before.
I have a CS6 license (not extended). If i buy 1 month PS CC, i'll be able to download and use CS6 extended for a month because CC only offers the extended version. If i decide after 1 month that my original CS6 is enough for me, can i still use it or was my CS6 boxed license changed to a CC license and i cannot use what i already paid for?

I friend of me who owns a CS6 extended version bought a 1 month subscription for PS CC. Since the PS version available in CC is still CS6 extended and not CS7 as their adds make you believe, all he received was a notification that his CS6 extended installation is up to date and that his license model was changed to subscription. He paid for something he already has and although he contacted Adobe, he got no reply reagarding the question if he had to continue to pay the subscription and he also did not get a refund.

In reply to:

hfgerena: $9.99 for a month trial.

I think I'll give it a try to this CC thing and see what they are offering. I rather spend it on a couple of beers, but to be honest, I really like Photoshop, but I already started to look for another option. Or live happy for ever with my CS6 version.

id you already own a CS6 boxed license and buy the CC extended abo for a month, what do you think is going to happen to your ild CS6 license? Does Adobe guarantee that you'll be able to use your already paid Cs6 license if you decide to discontinue your abonnement or was your license transferred and you can't use CS6 anymore?

On Olympus m.Zuiko 17mm F1.8 first impressions and samples article (255 comments in total)
In reply to:

SnapHappy32: If this is close to the performance of the Panny 20mm - I'll gladly give up my X100.

I've carried two bodies on most "shoot-what-you-see" walkabouts.
Good to see Oly covering this focal length with a prime - I shoot my 12-35 on the OMD. No distortion correction..

It's still a wideangle lens optically - so I guess it'll perfom better than said zoom if the Oly can compensate for distortion.

Bravo, Olympus.

Now that you lot have covered every practical focal length with primes (save telephotos) - how 'bout some native OLY fast zooms?

I can't remember a mFt fw update for Olympus or Panasonic that was about lens correction. At least not aince 2010. Imo this is a parameter driven algorithm and the lens provides the lens specific data data when attached, i.e. no need for a fw update.

BTW: which fw version is on your cam, the latest one increases battery time, Fw 1.1 fixed a bug when using some lenses with IS .... might be a good idea to look for the USB cable ;-)

On New image viewing options for forums article (162 comments in total)
In reply to:

acahaya: Images look horrible on retina displays, lots of ugly compression artifacts.
You really need to fix this, i have no problems in several other forums, flickr, .... but right now i try very hard to NOT look at pictures.

Problem seems to be related to mobile provider settings plus maybe high resolution mobile devices. Images look OK as long as i view them via WLAN.
I used to have a similar problem with my provider where images were not shown at all on mobile devices on some websites but this was solved by changing some settings in my profile. I already checked but nothing changed regarding the provider.
I also checked other browsers on the iPad, same problem so it is not related to Safari.

too late to edit ...

Using Firefox on a desktop pc i have no problems and really like the new viewer. But unfortunately i'm rarely able to read dpr via the desktop, i.e. i'm visiting 99% via a mobile device with retina display.

In reply to:

xtoph: i have not given anyone permission to 'download original' files of my photographs. dpr's inclusion of a dedicated button for this is bizarre, and suggests that i somehow do give such permission.

i am aware that people can copy my photos, but there's a difference between that being technically possible and it being actively encouraged and tacitly approved.

please change this. and shame on dpr, after facebook's photographer unfriendly changes (including a 'download original' button we have no control over) and the backlash against them, you would think that a photographer-centered site would have handled this differently.

@Roel: Like x 10!

In reply to:

acahaya: Dear dpr, may i suggest to simply drop the poll and this article. All those just posted comments really do not reflect very well on dpr as a site seriously dedicated to photography equipment. I understand that you need the clicks but this has turned into a kindergarden with lots of stupid brats and dpr as helpless or not really interested nanny. Rather embarrassing.

Your German has the same quality as the rest of your posts and you obviously need glasses. You may call me a girl or a smurf but for sure not a fanBOY :D

Regarding all those posts complaining about a thread in the m43 forum where users were asked to vote: Anybody regularly reading the m43 forum can actually only laugh about the idea that every user there promptly gave his vote to the E-M5 after reading about the poll.
1. All those voting for the camera they own had other m43 choices like the GH3
2. There were so many users complaining about too many E-M5 posts in this forum that imo if they voted at all they probably voted for something else ;-)

Do you honestly think Panny and Oly zealots stopped hating each other for a week of united voting?

It is amazing that there is so much annoyance about a simple poll. Go out and take pictures, havie fun with your own camera, cuddle with your loved ones or read a good book. Or find a website that voted your favorite camera as cam of 2012.

Obviously the world as we know it didn't end on 21 but on 31 of December ;-)

Get a grip everyone, this is just a poll and what it shows us is that we are lucky to have so many intesting choices. Best for me doesn't have to be best for you and the result shows that this year affordable, portable and good enough for most situations is a little bit more attractive than best IQ but expensive, large and heavy.

On The One-Light Studio article (94 comments in total)

good read and images that are perfectly suited to demonstrate the effect of one source of light coming from different angles.

Not sure what some of you expected here, this is not about beauty shots but it helps to understand how to position your strobe on order to achieve or avoid a certain depth created by shadows.

On Just Posted: Olympus OM-D E-M5 test samples article (458 comments in total)

Since all tested cameras are set to use multi segment metering, you cannot really compare them because all differences could be explained by different multi segment exposure algorithms.
To judge and compare ISO, the closest amateur test method is to use a grey scale image (128, 128, 128), manual wb for neutral greys and use spot metering under identical lighting conditions, because the metering algorithms for spot metering should have the least difference between camera makers and models.
And even then you only see a tendency to over-/underexpose.

ISO is nothing but an interpretation, handled differently by each instance that interprets metering and each instance that interprets raw data (i.e. JPG engine or RAW converter).
