cgarrard: I can't help it, I (aghast!) like the Black and yellow bodied K50.
Why? Hayell, I don't know. I'm not supposed too, but I do! Now the question is, would I like it a year from now? Dunno, can't say. But the more I look at it the more I like it- and I'm no stranger to having just black cameras either.
I like some color combos too.But that doesn't mean I'd like to go out and promenade holding one! ;-)
Nikonworks: Such an announcement should have the 35mm equivalency mentioned.( or am I just dating myself? )
Pardon me if I'm wrong, but it doesn't confuse old people used to it.
Furthermore, while DoF can be modified by varying the aperture, FoV stays the same for that lens on that particular sensor.
So I think it's great to have something that you can check in order to file that lens in your mind.Otherwise, you see, say, "25mm" and think: ok, it's a wide-angle.Only, it's on m43...
JurijTurnsek: Check out F-Stop Media Gallery for Android:https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fstop.photo
You can sort your images by tags (plus the standard features of other galleries), which is a truly powerful way of sorting a large volume of images (as any real photog will tell you).
Everything above 2.2 (Froyo), it's on the Google Play Store product page.
Jeff Seltzer: I have been using and enjoying the Beta version of 5. I think there are some significant feature updates vs. 4. For any of you that have purchased v5, are there are new features not in the beta? ALSO, what's with all the hostility towards Adobe?? It's just software. Lighten up.
It's not just "software", it's a new paradigm (LR is still an exception).It's a new way to try and take away from us what little freedom we have.
So, yeah, it's right to be angry about ADBE, and it's right to be angry about the recent Verizon scandal, and the fact that Mr. Snowden has to go into hiding, same as Mr. Assange.
Next comes "it's just your privacy, lighten up", and from there is only a downward spiral.
rallyfan: It is disappointing to see discussion of the Sigma DP M series in the comments below. The mere mention of that uninteresting series raises serious questions regarding the goals and rationale of its advocates. Umberto Eco noticed something similar about anyone that at any time and for any reason mentions the Templars.
"...il matto prima o poi tira fuori i Templari."
So basically:<b>What I want:</b> less limitations<b>Will it happen?</b> hahahaha... NO!
Timmbits: They should at least have done a little name research before choosing a new name for their lineup. A twit lens... HOW can you miss that????
...better twit than 7w@7... :-D
Random Asian Guy: I wonder in the near future, if everyone will be wearing google glasses or bionic eyes that has wifi and GPS.
The willing public will sign a waiver to the news company to tap directly into their glasses when ever they want at a payment per minute to the wearer.
News companies will just get a gps location with breaking news, search their database for signed up members near by and tap into their vision for instant live feed.
Just random thoughts about the future.
That's a shared feature of *all* forms of government, including democracy (plus, think Gaussian distribution and figure where is that going to lead regarding average intelligence).
So no need to bash communism, which at least tried (in its original conception, on paper) to put forward something better than the actual world.
rallyfan: In one of the (universally useless) articles on this site about a Leica product, at least two muppets were insisting PJs use Leica gear. They seemed otherwise healthy so it's not like they had concussions; they actually believed it.
Where are those halfwits now?
I said in a previous post that anyone with a work flow and a production method is at risk from the dozens of guys with wifi tablets that fire off their shots instantly. By the time you pack your precious gear and perform your oh so scary talented art there are twenty photos and two videos all over the web.
You get to keep your better images and the Pullitzer too. Congrats boys.
Rally photos is not something you can do with a smartphone.I know, I tried.
Hell, it's a difficult task with a DSLR, and when I snapped away at the drivers I sorely missed a second curtain flash (which my current DSLR doesn't have).I tried with smartphones and bridge cameras.No way a non-pro can manage consistently.
Same goes for cycling events, for instance.
You didn't get the point.You are still confusing the theory with its distorted application.Communism wasn't meant to be a one-man show like USSR's and China's implementations.
Reg Natarajan: Supply and demand. When there are cameras everywhere, the need to pay people a lot of money to take photos ends. And no, the marketplace does not care about the talent of these photographers. Get over it. The photography most people want to see is the video of Toronto mayor Rob Ford smoking crack. You can bemoan that fact, but it is true, and there's a lesson there that everyone involved in photography should learn.
Well, maybe I'm not "most people".And glad of it.
ryanshoots: More video sucks. Buggy players, mandatory commercials at the beginning and so on. I'll take a photo by a professional any day over 99% of the punters with an iphone video.
I understand the economics of it, but don't think for a minute that quality is going up.
@ryanshootsWho has ever cared about quality in the first place?That's mass market for you.It's a sad state of things, and it's apparent not only in photography/journalism, but almost everywhere.
You are confusing Marx's theories with the actual (distorted) application in the real world by Eastern Countries during the last century.Almost every American does, from my experience.
True communism will never be put in practice since it doesn't account for the fact that man's real nature is fundamentally "evil" (by design, i.e. evolution).
fuego6: Bloatware city... but - cheap if you need an editor.
the editor is... wait for it... ACDSee Photo Editor! :-)
tommy leong: went to their websiteTOTALLY confused by their products..
ACDsee Pro 6ACDSee 16ACDsee photo editor 6
Except Photo editor 6 ( which as the name susggest) , what are the difference between them ?
crap, the company itself sounds like they do the same thing yet not the same ..
ACDSee is the basic, mainstream photo viewer.ACDSee Pro is more advanced, with 64bit native RAW support and so on.
See here:http://files.acdsystems.com/english/support/wpm-en-2011.pdf(a little outdated, but it gives you an idea)
The good thing about them is that if you want to use them only as a viewing tool you can completely switch off the database and disable thumbnail caching (indirectly: just exclude all of your hard disks).
Hmm... lemme think...I'm pretty sure there already *is* some kind of news media heavily focused on video clips...OH! Now I remember, it's called "NEWS CHANNEL"...
There were videos like that long ago.Those are nicely done however...
...ok, I can't hold that stupid thought anymore:He's good at Markieting! :-D
Joe Wiegman: Interesting idea, but who would use it?
Agree, 100% novelty thing.Kickstarter & commercialization = an initial peak in sales and then a rapid asymptotical dive towards 0.
Prognathous: DPR: What's the point of having two separate comment threads for this story (one here, the other in the review page)? This is the same story and the comments should be in one place.
It's the same for almost everything here, and I've always found it unconvenient.So I second that.
