NCB: Wow!!! Nikon has a large chunk of the high end professional market (Canon has the other large chunk). Nikon keeps those customers informed of where it's heading, with a simple basic announcement. Makes sense. What else do you expect?
And cyber-space gets clogged with hysterical claims of the end for Nikon. You wish. How sad can some people get?
Till something better comes along. It always does. Needs change.
Don Sata: Maybe they should announce a 50mp sensor that has noise even at base ISO to please everyone.
I sense... sarcasm. dripping
2eyesee: Weird decision. My experience has been that it takes no more time to edit a RAW file than it does a JPEG.
it does take longer to edit raw because you have so many more options to edit. larger files, uploading to the server etc.
whereas jpegs sooc is it. cropping can be done by the editor in whatever page layout program.
lemonadedrinker: What is all the nonsense with the name across the image? Who cares who took them; they're beautiful pictures ruined with the distraction of the name thing at the bottom-saying to all of us Look at me,I'm as important as the whale.Eugene Smith never put his name on a picture. Nor did Edward Steichen. Nor any other genius of the arcane art of photography.
If they don't know how to sell their work then they should not be in the business of photography.
People who want to buy your work will pay for it.
People who want to copy or borrow or composite an idea may borrow it as there are creative commons laws for it and permissible.
Ethics? You never got any software you tried but never paid for? You never copied anyone?Please don't preach ethics.
I have seen this discussion argued to the end when Nazi's get mentioned and the discussion is over. That's why I thought you guys are just plain... naive & ignorant. Yes grow up or at least try not to remove all doubt.
Gosh, I feel like I'm talking to dungus. look it up.anybody with a little skill in photoshop can steal it.
you sound extremely naive to think otherwise. just dont put up any hi res stuff if you care so much about protecting your work.better still don't put anything up.
google, pinterest, instagram, facebook, flickr, deviant art etc- they're all gonna be places you're going to play the game of gaining fame or letting people steal your pic/idea.
i know what the other naive fella is trying to say about microstock as well. we do use microstock, but that only if it's for signages and commercial uses and getting in the hi res for the actual printout/media.
Gionni Dorelli: if you use lightroom CC you do not need these HDR softwares anymore.I have Photomatix and Nik HDR software packages and have not touched them since the last version of LR CC came out.
"not gaudy enough" says it all.
Different strokes for different folks. I prefer realistic but I have a weakness for artistic bokeh.
I'm sorry, I prefer not to pay for something that's already on google. It's a third world thing. Wait- we didn't invent google.
As for comenting 2 months later. I just bothered to reply because I'm free to do it now.
You actually sound very naive because it doesn't sound like you have done any quick presentations to any client that required some montaging photofit to describe your idea.
Having a few photographer's names on a photofit montage would look like you are very professional photo retoucher and give maximum confidence to yourboss/ client. [sarcasm font]
Sounds like you need to get that stick out.
nerd2: Nice tablet but simply priced wrong. I need minimum 8GB ram and 256GB storage for any productivity tasks and they charge $300 premium for that? No thanks.
And the surface book costs even more, $1699 for 8GB/256GB configuration... I thought apple pricing was terrible and MS one is worse.
@Zapiran. My apologies the Mactheweb. I read it wrongly.
The SP4 sounds like a winner.
Too bad I'm not loving windows. I just hate the GUI even though OSX does drive me crazy with office peripherals once awhile, esp printers.
naththo: LOL at two comment, another dumb and dumberer comnment. I don't see noise in this pic. Must be your monitor is stuffed.
I didn't want to say it but I wouldn't get this problem from my DF at ISO 100.
It's not technique when you're talking about 0.67 EV.
It could have been a choice since hair detail is meh compared to the glorious sky detail. Certainly I wouldn't care about hair detail in this picture.
Here's why I don't agree, underexposing to get detail in the sky is worth sacrificing the little bit of noise in the shadows. Especially when that can be easily taken out with NR software.
You can't get back lost highlight detail.
I see. Anyway the grain is very obvious on the shadow areas and this is a Canon sensor dynamic range problem [even at 50% view.]
It's the hair above the lady's temple. Shrunk to ~25% it looks clean.
Did you even to go 1:1 to pixel peep or are you surfing on a phone?
There is colour noise but that's the Canon, not the len's problem.
The bokeh shape looks very diferent. i'm liking it.
This is a nice size although I'm not a fan of Samsung, this is a good development.
mactheweb, the Cintique needs a computer to work.
Michael Ma: I hate the fact that you can get 1TB on the Surface Pro 4, but only 512GB on the Surface Book which is arguably more Pro that would require more storage space. C'mon Microsoft, always giving me a reason to hold off on my purchase. I waited a year to get 16GB RAM on it. Now another reason to wait. See you next year...maybe.
"For media, photographers, and other creative people, ..."Yes, this makes the most sense to me. My camera equipment is 70-80% of the weight on any trip. I don't even bother with the mbpr as that adds 5 pounds.
I reason that I wont have time to edit anyways but a thin light device might change my mind.
Just a Photographer: This seems like a very sexy device and leave the iPad Pro far behind in specifications, performance and possibilities.
ipad is for surfing, showing some content and enjoying media/games. Why is it being compared to a SP?
Ipad pro + apple pencil will be the best sketchpad. I see some similarities with SF4 but the ipp still isn't a tablet computer.
rolleyes at those '....killer' comments. Nope, just nope. Macusers will still buy the ipp and not bother with any MS product.
Bravin Neff: My favorite comment from the Youtube ad for the Surface Pro 4:
"RIP Ipad Pro (2015-2015)."
Nah, macusers will still buy the ipp over anything ms has to offer.
as far as cosmetics go, it looks better than the tokina badge
