On article Under the hood: A closer look at the Sony a7R II (600 comments in total)

On Image 14, clicked with a 25mm lens, is the vignette like darkening of the corners, post production or lens fall off. Crucial for me as the 25 was on my cart list.

Rahul Ranadive: Just tired of all the images showing death and destruction oh, and the Afghans and middle easterns. Its almost like a stage just created for all the photographers to show their concern!!

A friend with a huge reputation did a STUNNING photo essay 4-5 yrs back on Ebola. There were no takers!So it comes down to Western consumption,preoccupations and fear--little to do with affecting change or shaping a better world.

iae aa eia: I don't remember Kodak ever wanting that much to compete with Canon and Nikon, for instance, at least in terms of IQ. It was mostly about cheap and average products. Their appealing, as I remember, used to be about offering something different, interesting, trendy, but average image quality. If we look at Kodak with the right eyes, these offers seem adequate and make all sense. I had a V570 and it had just average IQ, but it was an very interesting camera featurewise, designwise, and even constructionwise. The problem is that Kodak wasn't keeping up in the average and was playing mostly in the cheap and very cheap market. These products may put Kodak back where they belong. I hope they go into production.

you make a good point about the market Kodak played for in their hay days.they made money on the entire eco space of film, paper, processing, chemicals etc.what do they have today to pull this off?!

On article Photographer turns to iPhone for creative wedding shoot (132 comments in total)

dholl: From the article:

---------------------------------------------------------
Bergerson has created a niche for himself with his spontaneous approach and "real" photos...He also counts himself an iPhoneographer: "You might not realize it yet, but this is as big, or even bigger, than the invention of the digital camera,"

Bergerson shot the entire wedding with his DSLR.
---------------------------------------------------------

You see it's comments like this that render the entire phone photography scene a self-perpetuating mutual backslapping affair of supremely smug hipsterism, while the questionable quality of its output leaves the rest of us wondering what all the fuss is about.

"real" photos, with that much extra saturation? He used his proper camera anyway for the actual job.

What editorial policy got dpreview to post this article? Paid coverage or just shortage of stories?

Philip Peynerdjiev: Canon MKIII is perfect for JPEG's shooting, in RAW Nikon is king.

Camera makers should improve their R&D for better JPEG's. So while the photographer takes care of all the "on location" factors, he is rewarded with good Jpeg's--saves time, effort and money. Also pushes Software monopoly Adobe etc to price better, if additional software is needed.
