anybody got suggestions for the best 2nd tier software?
GrahamJohn: Has anyone yet figured out how many angels can dance on the head of a pixel?
255, i thought everyone knew that...
Giuseppe Fallica: Improving photographs working on levels, curves, contrast, saturation, filters, lights, shadows, gamma, as well as using HDR techniques, photo stacking, etc.., is deontologically appreciable, because the final result, however, isn't a fake: only a picture improved.Techniques such as the one here illustrated, however, leave me puzzled because goes beyond the Photography and entering the creative montage. Which often has a great artistic value. But that's not Photography.
the few pros i know use the cheapest stuff they can find….
FWIW : i was thinking about buying Nikon. after reading about their QC issues and the way they have responded to them i decided i will NOT buy Nikon.when i pay $3k for something i want it to WORK. no excuses.
rules? rules! we don't need no stinkin rules!
i hate it. there was a perfectly good forum and you had to mess it up.
be nice if DPREVIEW actually got back to doing camera reviews…..D800, 5D III, D600, D6.to hell with the cosmetics do a review!
this is crap…..anytime you need an entire video to 'explain' a photo, the photo has failed
coastcontact: I am holding a 2003 brochure published by Costco and another published by Ritz Camera that says 5 megapixels will produce an acceptable 16 by 20 inch print. Even if that information is 100% off the mark a 10 megapixel camera is adequate for everyone except those displaying in a gallery. What possible purpose is a 36 megapixel camera?
mine is bigger than yours…...
Tom_A: Opinion from this old-fashioned photographer...
The D800 looks like one of the best cameras ever for those who like thoughtful photography.Still, my own perfect dream camera would be something simpler: a kind of equivalent to the deliciously simple and relatively compact yet excellent Nikon FM2 or FE2, with this sensor, AF and processing build-in, and of course with a screen at the back. But functionally, in essence just diaphragm and shutter speed.I wonder if I am the only one craving for such a combination of simplicity and quality.
buy a leica
i have been using canon since 1990 and i have never had a failure….
Damo83: And people were joking about using tape to block the passage of light...
i wasn't joking…….
seems like cameras are not tested properly before marketing them.all of the recent errors should have been caught in testing.even leica has had issues. i am afraid to buy.
all the new cameras are superb. i would be happy with any one of them. we are spoiled. just pick one and be happy.
ok, somebody find out how many SD1 were sold!
Zvonimir Tosic: By judging the usually awarded in the name of art of photography, I guess that the winning series will have depicted another human and natural tragedy, a lack of sense and sensibility in their full g(l)ory.
leicas only take black and white…...
why announce now if you can't submit until jan…?
that is the worst interview i have ever seen……..
sdyue: i do a lot of shooting in the dark outdoors... and i don't care what the camera looks like aesthetically, but care how and where controls are placed ergonomically so i can do what i want in the dark rapidly with minimal finger movement... and Canon dSLRs have got the controls where it counts especially for all exposure adjustments done menuless... much like the efficiency of 'touch typing' is to the keyboard typist.The G series is not over at all, it has always the flagship role on the prosumer end that isn't a dSLR where no other model is suitable (having best of all features in a compact). Hope the G12 successor (G13/14/Pro1MkII) 'whatever' it is will satisfy those who want a non-dSLR 24/7 type of carry everywhere back-up.Would love to see a 15mmx11mm (double dimensions: quadrupled area) sensor fit into the G series, and have it go mini-'Prime-Lens' centric (instead of super-zoom like the SX series)... i wish for a fast 24mm equivalent prime or wide short zoom at worst.
i would love to see ME on a G
