On Alien Skin offers Exposure 7 with Raw support article (50 comments in total)

Although the effects can be nice, it has nothing to do with film.

Film is film and is created by a chemical process, instead of digitaly on a screenl.

It's the same difference as between chocolate and chocolate fantasy.

vladimir vanek: Someone should stop google from their spy activities. It's/will be really dangerous that a private company has so much data in possession... And excavates more everaday from your emails, searches, tracking, calling etc.

@chlamchowder

**You give up some privacy, and in return get nice things like free storage space (drive) and so on.***

It's not some privacy, it's a lot. It is also a lot of privacy of people who do not use all those 'free' services of google, or not even using google at all.

***It's scary***
It's scary that commercial companies determine what is 'socially' acceptable on the internet, what is privacy and how to deal with this privacy and that governments give permissions for this in return for data they are interested in.

On Portrait Salon 'rejects' exhibition opens in London article (67 comments in total)

What I do notice is that the amount of photoshopping/instagramming (filters, selective lighting, added HDR, added/removed objects, plastification and body sculpting) is absent in most of these images.

That alone makes them worth to be viewed.
My favs 5 and 7

In reply to:

ecm: Interesting news, but I'm very disappointed that my RAW files are going to be excluded - makes it useless to me as an off-site backup. Not sure what else I would use it for.

I've tried different services in the recent past.
In my opinion still nothing comes close to own NAS storage, both by functionality, freedom of use and above all security and keeping your files private and or shared with those you want, without all kinds of disclaimers and disclosures.

My startup costs of a new NAS system were last year about 600 Dollars. It might be seen as a lot of money but in relation to the functionality and storage (in relation to online storage) I earn it back already this year.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2709 comments in total)

I could try out the 7D Mark II at Photokina, and as a long time Nikon user, the camera offers for sports/news photographers an excellent tool. I was impressed by the speed and fast focusing.

@MABOLETH

The Canon representitive told us that the camera will start selling at around 1700 Euros in Europe from end of November 2014.

Camera manufacturers make dedicated connector points on camera's to connect straps to which you can hang around your neck or shoulder.
I think the manufacturer of this product seems not to understand that.

Danny: So far, this seems an 'ink' upgrade, not really a hardware upgrade.. So why not introduce an new ink set that can be used in the existing models? My R3000 is brandnew and makes the highest quality prints in the highest possible resolution. I print on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Baryta, the blacks are BLACK, a deeper black is something probably no-one will ever need, for what? What would be much more interesting is a dedicated B&W printer in the line of the piezzo technology. So far, the new printers seem hardly new, it's the blacker ink that is new. And pretty pointless imo.

With the price of fluid ink being higher of that of gold why would you bring out a printer with only (several) black(s) while you earn a lot more by selling multi-color ink printers.

I do have an Epson R3000 myself and the quality is very very good but I have to say I seldom make use of it anymore.

JEROME NOLAS: Yes, beautiful indeed, if you play just for the fun and not money!

You mean if your talent is so good you can do it professionally and put all your joy not in a hobby but in your work is not good to do?
Or maybe you don't see professional soccer as work?

Keep in mind that the majority of professional soccer players do not get an outrageous reward for their work. It are the exceptions which is focused on.

On Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art Lab Test Review preview (567 comments in total)
In reply to:

Frank Dernie: I remember reading an interview with Leica's then chief designer aeons ago, probably pre-internet. When asked what he would need to produce still sharper designs he said no size or weight constraints.
He said it was much easier to get good performance from a big heavy lens.
The biggest challenge with Leica M lenses, and I suppose why they are so expensive, was to get such good quality from small relatively light lenses.
FWIW

I can imagine this from Leica Leica wants to reach the top in both optical/image quality and mechanical quality.

Sigma wants to reach the top in image quality for an affordable 'consumer' orientated price. So compromises have to be made.
