Jogger: Ive had a Surface Pro since day 1 and its the best laptop/tablet out there. Those with iPads.. have fun letting Apple/NSA spy on your every move and the walled-off ecosystem... hint, its a millstone, not a feature.

i like the surface, but you forget that microsoft was the first one to jump in bed with NSA

On GoPro files for $100 million IPO article (30 comments in total)
In reply to:

nicolaiecostel: I think you should correct the text. You state that GoPro made 18 dollars in revenue in 2013 ?

says they made 60 mil in profit, not sure where the 18 bucks comes from

On GoPro files for $100 million IPO article (30 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jogger: "Growing from humble roots, GoPro brought in close to $1B in revenue in 2013 and $60M in profit, making it appear to be a safe bet for investors."

lmao.. how is this a safe bet? their operating costs are humungous, your money is basically going to be burned as commission to IPO firms/lawyers, CEO pockets/pension, debt payments, and paying for crasy operating expenses.

The market for action pov cameras is pretty much saturated/matured... there is little to no growth.

funny, i was about to post a similar reply. 1bn in revenue to 60mn profit seems like a huge overhead to deal with. i wonder what its all going towards. unless there's a mistake and they meant 1bn in sales up to date and not just in 2013.

On Nikon issues firmware update for D800/D800E article (38 comments in total)
In reply to:

konoplya: I haven't flashed the previous firmware on the D800, would I still need to flash it before flashing this one or just this one would solve all the older fixes as well?

Also, some have mentioned that this update may decrease compatibility with third party lenses, is this true?

@bluebull thanks for the info. this gives me a bit more confidence.

On Create your own DSLR external battery pack article (66 comments in total)
In reply to:

brn: Nothing against the Chirs, but why is this worthy of posting on DPReview? It's using a DC Coupler for what a DC Coupler is designed for. Where's the news here?
All Chris did was mount the battery in a very inconvenient location. I can see my head hitting the battery or the cable. Not to mention, losing the ability to attach a flash or even the ability to use the built-in flash.

i'm glad this was posted, although i saw this on diyphotography last week. this setup definitely becomes useful when you're doing hours long timelapses. can't use this with my nikon, but great for those that can.

On Alien Skin Software announces Exposure 6 plugin article (11 comments in total)
In reply to:

PicOne: I really like Exposure, having now used since version 3. Glad to see the new additions of bokeh and frames. Very nice that it works as a standalone as well.. not many companies offer this without different pricing. Unfortunate it doesn't work with CS5, though 90%+ of exports into Exposure happen for me out of Lightroom anyway.

i'm still using version 3. having tried 4 and 5 i reverted to 3 because i like how the effects come out in that version as opposed to later ones. also, the layout of the 3rd one is a lot more user friendly to me. ymmv.

how do you get the milky way to curve like that as in the #1 photo? is it because its stitched panorama?

Charlie boots: Have just upgraded my PC to i7 quad with 32gb ram and SSD for C drive and also separate SSD for Lightroom cat and scratch disc, also set camera raw cache to 30gb on C drive. Inspite of this LR 4 is still slow in scrolling a catalogue of 25,000 files. At the most Lightroom takes only 9gb of ram out of 32gb. I hope Adobe has improved ram management. Photoshop CS5 works very well as it takes as much ram as it needs when processing large files.

i agree. have a very similar system to yours and lightroom 4.4 gets pretty slow sometimes.. but hey, it is adobe after all, nothing new
