Good try, but no place onboard for pilot, cargo and weapons.

Q: How do you manage problem A?
A: We don't see A is a problem. But we do not deny that in future we may make products without A problem.
Q: Do you plan to make product B?
A: We don't see any demand in product B. But sometime in future (maybe weeks, maybe decades) when we make product B we'll see huge demand for it.

On Lytro sheds jobs as it shifts focus to video article (506 comments in total)

Stop laugh at current photo capabilites of Lytro products. They're full of flaws and noone ever take their still cameras seriously.
Target is virtual reality, so photo and video are just logical steps to establish solid technology basis for virtual reality applications.

On Nikon D7200 First Impressions Review preview (1114 comments in total)
In reply to:

virtualkyr: From a stills perspective - the D7200 is an awesome camera, and a likely good upgrade from my D90.

However, I believe Nikon has really missed a great opportunity to attract video shooters by not incorporating some 4K into this one. They really would have done something Canon hasn't done yet and provide a larger sensor alternative with better low light performance and DR than the Panasonic GH4.

Your 4K video is completely obsolete. Nobody on this planet want to see video if it is not 16K at least.

As for me I'd prefer cigarette lighter built in instead of stereo mic.

I know the secret.

SONY got access to ultimate bending machine (Heil Futurama!).
Their engineers begun with a sensor. But tomorrow SONY can bend anything with NEW ULTIMATE BENDING MACHINE. Curved cars, curved planes, curved pets an finally a curved human. The curved future is coming. Be curved or die.

Aaron801: I know this is a really ignorant question, but I know nothing about this class of cameras... I'm wondering why a camera so bulky and so expensive is only 16mp?

You just not hold this beast in your hands.
Sony NEX are much bulkier and cumbersome in handling all day.
(It is because you holding small camera by fingers and control it by fingertips) So usability of compact sizes is myph.

Sweet. If only I win a lottery...

Seriously I like body size which is smaller than D300 with grip and like lightened buttons.

1. Flat surface very prone to micro-misfocusing and focal plane misalignment.

2. Printed photo colors basically have nothing common with colors of natural objects (by spectral characteristics). Also they degrade quickly and change colors significally just in months.

So this test charts show only how much alcohol test team had in last 3 weeks prior to test, but no way camera sensor.

What else they invent after scotch tape discovering?
A hammer with 2 heads? (If electronically drived second hammerhead beat you while you smash nail)
A scothched dual pensil that writes 2 strokes simultaneosly?
A gun that shoots at you and the enemy?
A cup for tea and coffee same time?

Stacey_K: Just FYI, the D7000 does have configurable auto ISO that works well.

AFAIK Auto-ISO in D7000 don't take account of focal lenght.

In reply to:

SverreE: Thank you for a nice review. I come from D300 and are very happy with my D7100.

The only thing i didn't understand is why you don't want resolution? At the same time you enjoy 1.3 crop and high ISO improvements...

Because I print large formats 42" wide and 6MP D40 was well enough with right lens. Perception of clarity by our eyes have little to do with resolution of camera but mostly with photographer's skill (And lens, and subject, and lighting etc.).

Yet another reason is that I purposely miss IQ aspects and concentrate review on handling and getting the right picture.

On The Lightroom catalog article (304 comments in total)
In reply to:

Thomas Kachadurian: Here's the money quote for me as to why this logic is completely flawed: "If you've read this far, it should be obvious that maintaining regular, current backups of the Lightroom catalog file is absolutely essential. In the event that your Lightroom library stops working properly the catalog file is always the first thing you’ll want to salvage."

No, you are wrong. The first thing I want to salvage is my raw image files. I am a photographer, not a database manager. I can't tell you how often my students call me saying "I've lost my photos in Lightroom (or Aperture or iPhoto)."

This is the problem when programers think they know better than photographers. Perhaps I have a better memory than other people or I am better organized, but using the folder system in 5 minutes I can lay hands on any of the hundreds of thousands of images I have shot since well before digital.

Lightroom can't hurt you original RAW files. So you're a troll.
Or take 5 minutes and read page or two about Lightroom.

On The Lightroom catalog article (304 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jim-S: Hi folks. Here's another question about catalogs. We're a commercial studio handling lots of large layered files, and our workflow consists of capture software, editing software (PS) and an asset manager (Iview Media Pro). Am I correct that there would be no way to use LR in a networked environment, where images are initially edited at one workstation, and later edited on a different computer? I have always assumed that the way LR maintains a catalog prevents this. Have I missed something?

No way. Lightroom doesn't allow you create or use lrcat catalog on network drive. Moreover, ALR uses very extencively cache folder in same folder as catalog. It uses plenty of open files so not suitable for average networks.
