Raist3d: No x-trans support, no Dxo.
Does RawTherapee have local adjustments?
I trialed V9, bought it and eventually became disappointed in the product. The prime denoise stuff was only good if you had many minutes to wait for processing to complete, and even then, Topaz was just as good or better. DXO isn't close to Lightroom, Capture 1 or ACDsee, at least not for me.
sheesh, i wonder what it weighs
As slow as DXO Optics, fewer features than CNX2, swell. Hey Nikon, down is not up. Disappointing.
Where are the updated/new wide angle primes?
You gotta figure they make most of their money from corporate, medium and small sized business. I would imagine that most of them can adapt to this change. I am also a software developer and can understand their desire to not support multiple code bases. But I am also a photographer/hobbyist, and this sucks big time. I use CS5 for most of the interesting post processing I do. The alternatives I have looked at just don't compete, so, I guess I upgrade to CS6 and hang on until there is a good alternative. Someone/company will make an great alternative.
Or even better, and something I have not seen a lot of in the forums, people will begin to point out good alternatives that cover the basics of what you can do with masks and layering in Photoshop. But things like PaintShopPro, PhotoPlus, etc... were just horrible (my experience).
I rented a D600 last weekend. Definitely saw the dark spots, plenty of them. I am used to cleaning dust off of my D7000 and images, it goes away, sometimes for long periods of time. But if a customer can't clean the stuff away, I would never consider purchasing a D600. The service notice doesn't indicate any resolution, other than repeatedly send the camera in for an indeterminate time period to have it cleaned? Right...
How was the iso performance of the prototype? Is it a noticeable improvement over the D7000?
Nice. One improvement might be to either (as someone suggested below) make the back button work, or make it easier to close the viewer, esc and the little x require either too much movement, or, too much accuracy :)
Thanks Mick. I responded with a message directly to you.
The waist strap doesn't look that good.
I am new to these challenges. I see a lot of rules that say o sandbagging. I am a golfer, so it means one thing to me. What does it mean in the context of these challenges? Can the host see who votes on which photos? Thanks...
