I'd like an iPhone with Key Lime Pie 5.0 ;-)
let me get this straight: are you shooting, like, in "bulb mode" and let the dumbphone manage the exposure?
reginalddwight: The forecast for Nikon and other Japanese camera makers is grim.
Nikon shares are trading 32% lower this year.
Their biggest slide comes from the 48% decline in compacts (with "only" a 6% drop in DSLRs).
As their company President Kimura hinted last month, Nikon are looking to tap into the smartphone market by creating a product that will "change the concept of cameras".
A Nikon smartphone, anyone?
..wait, seriously? :-|
1. THINK2. post.
Similar story. The author of this ( http://laptopiniran.tumblr.com/ ) post ended up offering apologies for calling someone a "thief".No point in a passive-aggressive behaviour like this one, really.
The innocent new owners of my laptop have been in touch and are mortified about the story and are keen to return the laptop.
Given the huge error of judgement on my part in sharing the story and failing to respect their privacy I have asked them to keep it by means of an apology.
Reg Natarajan: This thing takes narcissism to a new level.
because it's *your* P.o.V.
'just 'cause I sent the huge alarm clock that usually dangles from my neck back to the shop for chroming... (facepalm)
Nice! love the storm in a bottle.
Sam Carriere: It's bad enough that this site now considers phones cameras -- can we please not get into this?
Well, if it takes pictures, then it's a camera, I guess.At least phones are digital (as in DigitalPReview), and here only the printing process is digital, but I find it interesting nonetheless.
pauld77: But what if you don't want to be David Lean but just want to be David Bailey?
...and if you want to be Bayley's without the David just pour yourself a little glass!
JRFlorendo: I'm craving for that cheesy pizza now.....soo hungry!
I respectfully disagree.Moreover, if you look at the credits one of the names (& face) surely looks Italian.
There's no such thing as "too much" extra-virgin olive oil, even better if it's from Tuscany.
One of the niches of the Qs is shooting with a K adapter and telephotos (they get humongus equivalent focal lengths with that, and amazing clarity).You lose a little reach with the larger sensor of the Q7, but high ISO performance looks so good it might allow quite a faster shutter speed.
Well, if anything it's practical.It's only about 5x or 6x the size of the phone...
tkbslc: Awesome. You reap what you sow, right?
I thought you sewed what you previously had (accidentally) ripped.If it ain't broke, don't fix it! (a pity the guys at the Sun didn't heed this piece of advice...)
thx1138: What's an iPhone and iOS?
don't know, it must be aTypo ;-)
aleksanderpolo: And yet they use "Touit"
C'mon, you can tou it, Carl!
Najinsky: Can I be your new joke writer for your headlines. I promise I'll never use Carl and Ice in the same sentence again.
You could say you were involved in a carl crash...
guamy: How about ZEISS+YAHOO=ZEISSHOO or YAZEISS
...or ASSHOO... :-P ;-)
Some top-notch work there in Tribune's image gallery.
Biosphere: To those who say protesting doesn't work and the cloud is the future, have a look at this attempted parallel move from Microsoft and the backtracking
In addition to requiring daily authentication, it effectively tied a disc to a single console so games could not be shared freely amongst friends, resold privately, etc. Complete rethink.
As for the notion that it's just a few DPR users complaining about this, Adobe's Q2 earnings call reported sales down 10% and profit down 65%, so it's going to be very interesting over the next few quarters to see how this will play out longer term once anything exceptional that was happening in this quarter gets factored out.
Personally, I get by with Elements and LR. I aspired to owning the full blown PS, but maybe never would have actually bought it because of the large up front price. However, I will never go down the subscription route even with the supposedly low entry price.
@Irata: you can always short-sell them...
jefflins: I have not seen anybody articulate the reason I am unhappy, even though I feel it applies to many people.
It's not the DRM. It's not the Cloud or the internet connection. It's 2 things:
1) Price (as many have noted)...I used to get updates for 150 bucks at each release, or every other release....so 18 to 36 months apart. Now I will have to pay $360 to $720!!! At a bare minimum the price has more than doubled.
2) My investment is worth less! This is what I haven't seen written about. I spent a lot of money buying PS with the promise of getting upgrades for a reasonable fee periodically. THAT IS GONE. POOF. I save 10 bucks a month for a year. That is what I get for for my investment. Yes I can keep using the product, BUT THE TERMS HAVE COMPLETELY CHANGED. Nobody has articulated this issue. Sure this pricing is ok for new people that couldn't afford PS. But for those of us that spent hundreds on it, with the promise of upgrades in the future, have been given the screw.
@A.E.P.:You're playing semantics.Moreover, jefflins is right.
Investment:Property or another possession acquired for future financial return or benefit.
So Photoshop fits the bill.
