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.

On Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? article (1509 comments in total)

But where is Nikon D4?
Al least it is nice and funny camera to use.

Last year many internet users sling whole barrel of clear sh|t at Nikon:
"Nikon won't love DX users with D400"
"Nikon must go with fullframe compact"
"Nikon 1 is useless and awful system"

Today is clear what strategy lays behind Nikon moves, and as DX user I like any of possibilities with Nikon:
1. Go CX and shoot for own pleasure.
2. Stay DX if you are not a pro.
3. Go FX D600 and use f/4 zooms.
4. True Pro remains with f/2.8 and 2012' pro bodies.

Honestly I'm very impressed with any of today's solution. Few years ago quality photo was possible only with 4th direction.
So many of us amateurs spend thousands for Pro equipment as the only way. Now we have a choice of actions.

In reply to:

jcmarfilph: And when shoot this scene, please equalize the settings next time coz we are seeing inconsistencies in your studio shots in almost all cameras (within similar group).

So natural objects like feathers, ceramic barelief, hand made dolls, matte laquered woods, old metal coins covered with some oil, anodized metals etc. will serve very well for comparisons. They also have unlimited details.

Please read my message carefully.
1. Printed photo completely unacceptable for test purposes. Their colors very different from real objects beause of metamerism.

They look similar to real objects only for our imagination and in some lightning conditions. In reality colors in prints have completely different spectrum than original colored objects.
And that spectrum on prints have characteric spikes while real color's spectrum are continous in nature.

2. Colors on prints tend ageing very fast, especially from light emission. Also appereance change with air humidity.

On Just deployed: New dpreview.com forums system article (699 comments in total)
In reply to:

jamesfrmphilly: i hate it. there was a perfectly good forum and you had to mess it up.

Personal message for Britton:
Did you analysed before how dpreview users read forum and write messages?
You just take a good forum model for acid degenerates like Twitter. That new forum suitable for "me too" and "first!" messages. And nobody reads twitter messages older than few hours.
But you were not twitter. Most peoples here at dpreview don't sitting here whole day, they hard at work making photos and prints. Interesting discussions here went thru months if not years. It was a perfect community to learn and grow with digital photo last 8 years.

With new forum look I'll never find interesting message and never answer interesting questiuon. Because all that visual crap deny quick scan of themes and messages.

You asked for feedback. But you mean "change color" or "add 5 new buttons" and not like critics of new appearance as a whole. It is self-destructive motto for you.

Personally I understand how critics insults you. But that's true.
I hope you'll understand it too.

In reply to:

chlamchowder: If this camera does manage to perform well at tracking action without using PDAF, I will be very impressed.

However, I suspect that he'll be stopping down the lens and zone focusing...I doubt that even the latest iterations of CDAF can track well in demanding situations.

It is sort of old school circus, like a sword-eaters, jugglers, haired face woman etc.
Imagine sportsman who used circus monocycle at bycicle race. It is very funny but not about the race and sports.
So mr. Mouhtaropoulos set a Guinness record as an only sport photographer in the world that used (hopefully once) Panasonic camera.
Bravo!

So main question will be the lens. Nikon CX need a good lens to use.

Amazing! much better than JPEG previews seen before. Nikon won the race. ISO 3200 usable. And as always you meet the choice - good quality studio shot or perfect responce for great reportage photo. While not so perfect in professional low ISO studio work, is seems good for ISO 3200 reportage shots.

I want it.

Yea? Sorry. Reviewer fakes picture not by PC app, but image editing software built in camera. Shame anyway.
