Pho3NiX: After reading some comments I gather than XQD will be like converting current SSD drive technology to a CF form factor. And many people ask what are the benefit.
The thing is that the rated speed is not the speed you get (in general). It may be the speed you get when when writing the first file on a fresh formatted card.
But from that point on the card have to do housekeeping operation a bit like a Tetris game to continue writing. When doing that, nothing new is written on the card so the effective speed is slower. If you decide to erase some photo, or change them on the card (ie rotate) then there's even more Tetris work to do in future writes.
All in all the mean effective real-life speed have almost nothing to do with rated speed. This is why there's different in real life speed against similar "Class N" SD card.
Again there's the question of cost to achieve said storage and speed. In general smaller means higher cost.
This is mostly used for top professional cameras that need the speed when shooting, rotating and other editing works usually happens when you do have more time. but when shooting away on a camera such as D4s, you're usually working on a card that you format each time you off load previous photos. My camera uses SD cards and I do that all the time.Even on editing the speed of the storage really counts, and its not just the speed of the head, but also the speed of data transfer. When I work on raws saved on my external hard drives, the speed really changed when I moved from USB 2 to USB 3. Not because of the speed of the Hard drive rps but because of the speed of data transfer between the hard and my computer.
ChrisKramer1: I don't believe tablets can be used for fine-tuning raw images on the go. I personally find processing images on my 13" laptop in a hotel room using Lightroom or Photoshop extremely trying. Screen reflections, washed-out colours and severe eyestrain all make it a nightmare. I have a 27" monitor at home but I would still like something bigger - like the 40" Lenovo IPS monitor for about 700 Euros.
On IPad I find Artstudio works just fine. Photoshop Touch offers better selection tools - and I like its interface. But it is sadly under-developed. It could be SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much more....
I think it would be an awesome product to be used with this tablet from wacom:
good screen good hardware.... just needs a great software to go with it :)
Nice capture :)
interesting technique and awesome result :)
DMGoldie: Can we use lens attachments like the Olloclip?
but that's basically just a lens not a post processing... I was all about taking this closeup with my clip on micro lens!
good capture. thanks for sharing
Nice composition, and a smart use of HDR I believe :)
Is this really in Tehran? I know there is a festival going on, and they got camels in the city, but even the background doesn't look like Valiasr!
wow! nice :)
Sindreste: Why do you think Fuji is using a LCD-viewfinder instead of a OLED? Is it because it costs less, or is the LCD better in any way?
I believe it have be because this devices are designed to last longer as a pro camera, like the body is. So it makes sense to use LCD that last longer. OLED is brighter at the beginning but looses the quality over time. I believe OLED is best for mobile devices as you are expected to change it in 2-4 years, but on a pro level camera LCDs last longer.Also on a camera like this the consistency is important. if you are used to capture the same image you see in your viewfinder and be satisfied, you shouldn't have to change your expectations.
Sorry for judging quickly. Just wasn't trilled to see this challenge being associated with anything but art.Lets hope beautiful photographs get uploaded here :)
@jezkasdad If you only hear about a city in your news channels, it doesn't mean that everything happening in that city is what your news channel shows you. It means your understanding of the city is limited to information and sometimes opinions aired by that agency. I hope photos uploaded to this challenge help you get another perspective of the city.btw this challenge was introduced by a photographer in Argentina whom among other challenges have started challenges from different cities like Paris as well. @fotografiasol
The shadow looks like a shopping bag.... As if that's what men see is behind any shoe ;)
When I look at it, I feel I'm there. Then I look around and realize I'm not. Bummer! As @Stefano M mentioned, the perfect picture for this challenge!
