Robert F. Tobler: My standing complaint: missing support for the Sigma Merrill cameras. This is supremely annoying, especially since a small outfit like Irident Digital manages to support these cameras. SHAME ON YOU ADOBE!

A pity it's Mac only, looks like it's a very capable piece of software.

chrisnfolsom: With only 1" separation would that not reduce the stereo effect at distance? I usually us about 2.5" past 20". Anyway, will be nice to see, and I am sure without stereo the stitched images will look great. Now they just need to get the dynamic range up....

Mmmh... you might be right...

1" separation /and/ a 45° angle...

On Manfrotto introduces new lens filter lineup article (125 comments in total)

Wow, so much hate without even having tried one, or seen some pics...

Sometimes I think I'm stupid because everybody else must be a real genius to be able to judge a product without having even seen it...

When something goes bad, just put the blame on someone...

There's plenty of delusional people here that can't seem to understand that the "facility" - if it ever existed - only did what it was asked to by the company.

I'd fire the management instead... but, oh right! Italians are all scammers, so it must be /their/ fault!!!
Please...

On Sony G Series XQD format v.2 memory cards introduced article (43 comments in total)
In reply to:

Just a Photographer: I thought this format is as dead as a dodo.

The only camera that uses this format is the D4.

You really have problems...
And then you start calling names because your argument is flawed.
I know exaclty what every single thing I named is.
they could have used mp3 in minidiscs, but decided to create a proprietary compression, probably because they could tout it as advanced on their leaflets.
They're headstrong, they don't care for the end user, and if you buy Sony I'm sure you'll be left in the weeds sooner rather that later.
There are many other brands who do the exact opposite.

Technically, yes.
Just remember that Sony is the company of Lost Causes and Failed Formats...

In reply to:

Zvonimir Tosic: Totally not interested in zoom lenses. but I have to admit this one is good.

Price is comparable with the competition, and the street price will always be lower, and when it comes in kits, it will be dirt cheap. So for a lens with quality motor, best coating on the market, and the WR, this may be the only lens some user will ever need. Why it's not f4 constant? Well it starts at f3.5 and ends at f5.6, so average is f4 anyway.

Well done, Pentax engineers.

@iudex
Pentax has a very good record regarding intermediate apertures for zoom lenses, check the 55-300 WR

Karl Summers: Truly amazing, the first recorded selfie?

Well, that's one thing...
Compulsively taking self-portraits at arm's lenght with a cellphone in order to be able to say to the (social media) world "look!!! I've been here!!! there waw this guy/event/famous person/aircrash" etc. is quite another...
