Geez no enlargement view?These old images hold much more detail than shown here due to the large negative (glasplate) size.
This is a fine example of totally useless camera;- Camera cannot text, thus average smartphone does a better job for social network contact. (and sphones offer a choice of social networks)- Image Quality will not do for serious photographers who need a upload anyhow now feature .
Overall I'm really getting worried about Canon's future making a statement with such outdated crap.
Sharpness seems to be slightly more fuzzy in Daylight than artificial light (looking the bottle area).
And maybe for pixel peepers a coordinate bar (like in landmaps) to communicate issues one sees in photo.
A bit sad that older cameras will now become uncomparable. (good news for manufacters since image quality improvement seems to stagnate last 2 years )
And one request I would like to see; A test photo with 1 sec exposure bulb light. (long exposure noise at every iso).
But after all the point the test image seems worthwhile the effort to trash older test data. The image makes sense and points of IQ attention are easy seen. (older version was more or less a forest where each and everyone had its own favourite point to inspect)
Why using a phone as trigger device? All you need is flash to blast at certain sound or movement detection...That hardware exist.
Any additional computing to trigger the flash will slow the proces. Yes computing slows the proces. And it shows in the photo; The ball hovers above the ground on way back instead of being flat on the floor.
Having an automated photo capture stream does not mean a result with great photos.
From his selection of photos shown here only nr 1 is good. The other show photographer failure of showing what he wants to express with the photos.
That said the video shows Pierre had a lot of fun at this concert in his own way and therefor the video is more interesting than the snaps.
daMatrix: For what I see the model is as she is and eats well. It is an insult to slim women that they have to justify their proportions over and over again to the main public....
Right on and then there is also a difference in how fast or slow on reaches the chubby 'Rubens'phase. But some may eat what they want but never get into size 40+ ever.
Living in Europe gave me a realistic view on bodymass.

nickimay: For a company it's not bad.
A fix cost, fully deductible, helping in assessing your operation's cost and forecast.
Also, for a company/professional the cost is ok. Compared to the total monthly cost of any employee and to what her/his work will be billed it adds peanuts.
Obviously we are talking about the western world. Companies in developing countries who are voted to domestic business would be hard hit, but one needn't to downplay the flexibility and creativity of these societies.They will be getting full steam ahead with new solutions in no time.
Those left behind are the hobbyist/amateurs, for whom the opportunity cost would be hard to justify or just out of reach.
It is true that the most of them use very little from a CS package and could fulfill their needs with simpler and cheaper -or free like GIMP- solutions.
I will stick to LR (with an occasional bent to GIMP) as long as it will be available outside the cloud scheme. Keeping options open just in case...
Hmm I doubt a monthly fee will make it easier. There are a lot of companies that have an occassional need for adobe software. Getting immediate hold of the company creditcard as soon as the task is on the desk is a recepy for trouble, antilust for the product
In many cases it will work like; The boss is in a meeting but I want to continue with a job so I have too look for alternative software to adjust photo/ create design. Or i had already asked for a license last month and I do not feel comfortable to ask again for only 2 photo adjustments. Or wait a second Gimp is free, unlimited, no hassle with how brief or lengthy the photojob is.
Looks like a version of Kata 3-N-1 series .Their model is ultra light and modern versions have a pocket for a laptop/ paper .(I find a pocket to store brochures / books / tablets is essential)
What I do not understand in this review is the model name does not correspondent with images of Tamrac website.
Colin K. Work and others who try to find out how to limit external usage of images by through FB friends; If you have news how to, please share it here.
So they going to show other people images big. Some may object that their work is shown in review (not preview) size - out of context - in a diarrhea of whatever other images. No matter what kind of iptc info bla they put next to is, it s wrong.
Atleast I feel my work will be violated by Google... Because I took great care in presenting my photos in the right web environment. I took special care in the choise of photo combinations on my website, creating a balanced mood that enpowers all images. It is wong of Google to show the large photos in a mixer of trillion other photos choosen by a script..
GoremanX: None of this explains why I can't just use some other cataloging software and use Lightroom solely for image processing. I find the Lightroom catalog features to be sorely lacking, my preferred catalog software does a much better job of organizing and retrieving my images (yes, even different versions of the same image). But every time I want to process a photo in Lightroom, I have to trudge through the tedious import process, even for ONE STUPID PICTURE.
This forced Adobe cataloging crap is merely a means to lock users into a purely-Adobe workflow. Nothing more, nothing less. And it's insulting.
I also prefer my own Damn software -IMatch- above lightroom and who ever to come wanna be catalogue software.Why would anyone who has already build up a solid catelogue in other software want to repeat this task of categorizing 1000 + photos in just a pretty slick raw developer tool.
I would love if Lightroom was like Bridge a direct file access tool but with Lightrooms extensive raw developing / meta data editing tools.
Importing each and every time the photos into Lightroom asset takes the speed out of this otherwise pretty slick raw editor.
Time traveling news?
The press release date:COPENHAGEN, October 25, 2012
It is now 24 October.I noticed something was wrong because there is not 1 letter baout version 7 on PhaseOne site.
daMatrix: I'm also sad about the focal length.35mm? I would prefer a 50mm on this dream camera. Otherwise a 85mm would make it a perfect companion for concert photos in clubs.
If the RX1 came with freedom of focal length choice I would now be hysteric of happiness (a feather light full frame...that fits in a lady purse).
Anyhow the RX1 is remarkable And a congratulation is in place; It is the 3 milestone in cameras deliverd by Sony (other hits: Mavica with floppy storage 1981, Sony Nex )
Exactly my point; It is a great camera with a wrong lense.
To me that is the deal breaker, after that comes the reality that fullframes are costly.
And to those who think a 35mm lens gives more crop space: Photos should express a certain feel for composition. It is difficult to shoot with the crop in mind. Not to mention the drop of image quality. And croppings brings people in the background closer to the observer, but their ignorance of being watched makes them look like zombies.

daMatrix: Hmm Sigma delivers once again a great camera for a very narrow group; Photographers with an eye for 28mm scenes.
No 50mm (my favorite) and not even a middle of the road 35 mm.If they had created a camera with interchangeable lens the Merrill would be the pro answer to Sony Nex line....But Sigma rather created a camera that excludes about 75% of all pro photographers.
I know the DP1 Merrill will deliver the quality.. But again Sigma creates a camera with 'someone elses' focallength.
I know myself with 28 I will hardly deliver stunning photos. People will be to remote and the frame will be cluttered with unwanted street objects.

daMatrix: Looks like Pentax came up with a smoke confusion camera;It s dressed up as a serious beast but specs show it will be difficult to achieve the 2012 quality with this cam.
The 'low' pricetag will help sales (there are people who buy because of price instead of what they need), however the weight and size of camera will reduce that small group.
My guess when looking at the specs; This is a cool looking brick. (A second hand Canon eos 450D comes in same price, weight and size with a lot more sensor power and glass choice)
Or better said; two- tamron 18-200 mm lens. (secondhand possible included with camera)- Opteka 500mm- 1000mm mirror lens $150
Ok the weight and price may be a bit higher but so will image quality.
And since 99% of the extreme tele zooms are gathering dust after a month of use (whatever their glass quality, they only perform well in combination with a heavy tripod): The dslr route still leaves the user with a good camera with allround zoom.

Ok first test compare software;Lightroom = category professional softwarePhase One capture One pro = category consumer image editor.(can't imagine aunt Bes from Auckland having fun with this $$$ software)
There are a lot more small issues that makes or breaks a raw converter: Colour profiled conversion, batch printing, batch conversion to name a few.
But atleast the compare software is a start.
