toomanycanons: Interesting. First I read the exploits of Matt Dunham. The guy has a good eye and has the latest equipment. Can I make the assumption that AP pays for his kit? I'm going to, even if I'm wrong. He gets flown around the world on assignment, has to get the shot (or he wouldn't even have this job) but basically has a photography job as opposed to freelance.

Then I read the exploits of another photog in the same position as Matt. "Here's where we want you to be shooting this event" sort of job. Again, the guy is good.

Then I read about the exploits of a third photog, a "freelancer". Pays for his own gear, has to come up with what event he wants to attend (while paying his own expenses) and then tries to sell his stuff to whoever will buy it at a reduced price.

All three are photogs with skilz, two of them have paying jobs and the third, just as qualified, wonders where his next paycheck is coming from.

so whats the point of this posting ?

Robert Koren: I have takef time to to test it on some work I do. the image was 1200*800. I was using two layers. and after two hours I just erse the project. in desktop photoshop it takes 10min to do the job.
whta was the bigest problems I have :
in first it was wery bad performance.
in second wery strange work with layers
in third , theagic selection is useless and manual selection is preaty hard by finger
and at last I was wery disapointed about the brush and look of the brush, it was always to hard at the edges so it was unable to do soft transitions

could you explain what you tried to do and show us the picture you tried to work on ?

two hours instead of 10 min is tough ^^

E Dinkla: Not a word about Android tablet screen color calibration and Touch color management. Sure they hardly exist but should that not be mentioned?

if its not in photoshop touch, i guess not, as this is a photoshop touch review ^^

jmmgarza: Five inch prints at 300 dpi. Fun for small prints only. Great for web email, facebook, etc.

and if it would support 50Mpixel, would you use a 10" screen and a 1cm^2 mouse arrow to do you professional work ? ^^

daMatrix: This example just proofs that tablets are nowhere near laptop /desktop photo editing.

no it proves that

1) its hard to develop for android, because you cant be sure what tablet/OS version the user uses

2)that adobe doesnt care about tablet users, beccause they sell their normal software for around 100x of what they charge for their mobile softwar

3)that adobe thinks its enough to just be adobe and call their product photoshop to attract buyers

4)that often there are way better apps from small developers than from a major studios

5)sorry for that, but that apple rules the tablet market, i mean ok ps is not out for iOS so far, but we all know, if apple says it runs fluently on an iOS device, it just does ^^

6) and last but not least, i use a d700 and a d3, and i can connect my camera to my ipad2, download the RAWs, edit them with filterstorm and upload them from anywhere on the go, and since i have an ipad i dont take my laptop with me, and customers get their pictures available online before they are at home. sometimes before they leave the location^^

James Van Artsdalen: Since when is 1600 x 1600 "real high resolution"? I have never owned a digital camera with resolution that low! Maybe a camera-phone years ago; I no longer remember.

I did try to use it with a Toshiba Thrive but I was not able to pan after zooming the image. There are no tutorials or instructions on *using* the app, only on how to make various edits, and nothing on how to view or inspect the picture to decide what, if anything, to do.

Everything is driven by unlabeled icons. You won't get anywhere unless you're already proficient with Photoshop/desktop.

I tried it on a friends tablet, dont know which one ^^but if the performance, AND the way the app handles everything, is the same on the future iOS release, then i stay with filterstorm ^^

i dont know if filterstorm is available for android, but on iOS it simply ROCKS, in fact i would use filterstorm on my mac instead of PS for photos if it would exist for OSX

I dont understand what adobes plan is for touch devices anyway, to me all productivity apps they released so far are crap, adobe ideas, adobe PS express, PS touch.

especially adobe ideas, for 5 € you get 1! pencil, thats it ..^^

i think the only major company that really invests time and ideas for tablets is Autodesk. if they bring out sketchbook design for iOS i will try to marry the boss of this comany hehe

Tape5: Human vision doesn't do any HDR. It is a law of nature that if you want to see something really well, you may just not be able to see other things so well! This can be used creatively by some. Personally I cannot see why anyone would desire to see it all indiscriminately inside a frame. Isn’t a frame after all a tool to hide what is not inside it?

we obviously dont do hdr, because hdr means we make under and over exposed pictures and combine them to a new picture, this new picture has to have a bigger dynamic range than possible with one picture. thats hdr

we dont do this

we just have a bigger dynamic range, and better processor, so we dont need to do that :)

Jogger: Nokton 25 0.95 should be on that list. Its certainly interesting.

@barney: heard, but didnt read everything, he said canon and nikon cameras, so he obviously means the mounts :)

In reply to:

Infared: I like this list, good eye!. I "usually" defer to Canon L glass...(although I wish a couple of Nikon lenses came on Canon mounts. LOL!), I do own one of these though...the Sigma 50mm f/1.4. Fun lens...the specs made me shun the Canon choices...and I am very happy with my Sigma. Great lens.
One lens on the list that I question for me as a Canon user...is the Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG etc...etc...etc...LOL. I bought the Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro. (The lens may be the sharpest I own..even better than my Zeiss 21mm). Same price as the Sigma 105mm... so if I am not saving any money...it is a no-brainer to buy the Canon Macro (its a great lens for a LOT more than just macro photography)...So ..am I missing something about the Sigma?????

what??? your 100 mm macro is even sharper than a cosina 21mm wideangle ? get outta here :)

Vlad Didenko: bh photo video claims that Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM discontinued for 4/3 mount, although Sigma still lists it on the product page. What is the story?

i think its just like you said. ^^

In reply to:

pocky: My first DSLR was a Nikon, bought partly because the internet said there was all this "great glass" available. Two years later pretty much all I need is the Tokina 11-16mm, Tamron 17-50mm (the non-stabilisted version), and the Tamron 90mm macro (although I do like the 70-300mm Nikkor too). Nikon lenses are mostly too heavy and too expensive, two things which reduce the fun of picture taking, and the three I mentioned above have just brilliant IQ (IMO)!

nikons are too heavy? ^^ did you ever hold a 50 1.4d in your hand?

iam only buying original nikon, because, third party lenses are too heavy, too big and still feel cheaper than nikon lenses

In reply to:

Andrei Todea: I don't understand how they chose these lenses.

They didn't choose them by POPULARITY (at least not based on Fred Miranda views or number of members on Flickr! groups).

They didn't choose them by PRICE (an "enthusiast" could do very well with a 50mm f1.8 or at least with the still cheaper, smaller Nikon/Canon/whatever f1.4)

I also don't understand how they chose the focal lengths. One of the most popular zooms is the 28-70mm (24-70, 28-75) and they don't even mention it while they prefer 8-16mm instead.

So how did they choose them?

they chose what in stock on amazon :)

On article Android and iOS App Tools For Photographers (70 comments in total)

there are free verions of dof calculators for android and ios, and for ios the is a free movieslate.

why promote paid apps if some developers do all the work, and just give it away for free? that deserves some promoting :)

i dont remember how the dof calculator for android was called, but for ios :

free movie slate: FreeSlate
free dof calculator: iDoF Calc
free 360degree stitcher from microsoft: Photosynth

Photosynth is pure awesomeness, it makes seemless spherical panos, rectangular stretched to 2048x1024px and saves those photos in the phone photo library. now you can take pixeet360 which is also free, load the 2048x1024 pano, and host it on your free pixeet acount. the cool thing with pixeet is that it reads out the gyro information so you can watch it in augment reality style by turning and tilting the phone around.

veroman: So let me get this straight: you somehow get a pretty girl to get into your car and go with you to some dark alley somewhere, where no one can see you. Then you talk this pretty young lady into going into the back seat of your car so you can "take pictures of her."

Hmmmm .... sounds like something out of American Graffiti ... something a teenager would do. How old are you?

no ! your fantasy about the intention of this and what YOU would like to come after the shooting is the teenage fantasy hehe

i like it a lot !
i think i will buy this only for video shooting, and a nikon adapter.

photowise i wont buy a cam without viewfinder, but for filming its cool i think, better than mft/gh2 i wanted to buy before i guess
