The Davinator: Great. Run out of 1 color and throw it all away. What a waste.


Not exactly typical...Canon and HP create a similar ink profit.

I think there will be always an artistic 'need' for 'flat' imagery, (digitally) painted or photographed.

As long as you have to do something specific technical to see or enjoy it in an other form, it will not be the future, as an example 3D technology is also not what "they" (the marketeers) expected of it.

from an artist perspective and as an art object and project it's well made, from a photographic standpoint..it's quite underexposed

Ran Plett: I can actually see this technology working well. Sort of like photography training wheels. They've got the concept right, but just need to tweak it a little to instead prevent:

+ cat photos
+ overbaked 'painting' like HDR images
+ night shots of those spinning balls of burning steel wool
+ ridiculous GWC pics of wannabe models leaning against things in an awkward pose

Did I miss anything?

Did you mention cats already...oh yes you did, sorry!

StigGreus: I really do not see the point with this at all; sounds totally useless. It would be a pretty worthless camera to bring with you on a vacation for instance. Who would want to bring a camera with you that won't allow you to take a picture of the Colosseum when on vacation in Rome.

It probable will come out on April 1st 2016

M Lammerse: Lovely photo and poster worthy for in the WWF youth magazine

Not over dramatic or over edited. Great a normal natural photo won!

Congrats! It made me instantly smile, as it did with my youngest son.

McCool69: I am slightly amused at the amount of people that seem to think the point of this is to make an exact measurement of how much Instagram degrades an image.

Of course it isn't - it is first and foremost an art project that also points out something that a lot of people (I'm talking non-photographers and casual users here...) are not aware of.

I think it is an excellent idea that gives the artist tons of exposure. Would have loved to come up with it myself.

This just remembers me of what one of my photography teachers always told me: photography is a chemical process.

We're 'just' creating images nowadays ;-)

Wow! .Making an Instagram filter yourself by just reposting your images

brownie314: Is Nikon not aware of the current situation in the camera market? Why throw more uber high priced lenses at a market where people are willing to spend less money?

This lens is aimed at professional users and usage. Although the lens cost a lot of money, if it is expensive depends on the user.

On Quick Review: PhotoKeeper article (103 comments in total)

I'm using both backup by NAS and online (cloud) storage by Amazon.
Amazons' specific photo service is a bit spartan when it comes to viewing and organizing but the main important thing: storage does it wonderfully well:

- it stores unlimited amount of images for a fixed amount a year
- it stores RAW images as well (although viewing them is limited to thumbnail size

We will see this lens the coming year as a kit lens (like is done with the 24-120mm f/4 for full frame camera packages)

lbjack: That foot on the desk makes me wonder if he was thinking, "Where's the popcorn?"

That aside, the complaints about the politics are well-taken. So, about the photos themselves...

Except for the foot on the desk, where we can identify the event by the TV screen (though the image may or may not be contemporaneous), the rest of the shots are non-descript taken out of context.

I recall my First Rule: Get the Shot. Regarding these images, with the single aforesaid exception, I should then say, What shot?

The quality of the shots are mediocre at best, but the subject can make them interesting. Here, the subject of only one shot is interesting in itself, so, unless one considers Dick Cheney and his wife/staff interesting per se, none of the photographs, save one, are interesting either as subject matter or photography.

Yes, that foot on the desk, usually a sign that people are relaxed or not really watching with great interest or not impressed.

Might be he saw it already...

The best out of this series, because this image says more than all the other ones together.

It was our wedding day, so we usually don't forget that one in the family.

groucher: Not bad in the centre of the frame but the edges and corners are shockingly bad. Think I'll stick with my old metal Nikon primes - much better.

Shockingly bad...? Point me (us) please to a shockingly bad example in this series

On Capture One Pro 8 software review article (314 comments in total)
In reply to:

SmilerGrogan: The bottom line with this software is that photos processed with it have a distinct look that is used by many of the world's most highly paid professionals. So if you want that "professional" look, you need to switch to Capture One.

I hope for you it is sarcastically meant?
