Paul Boddie: What? No Vulcan? ;-)

Narr:

I'm aware of what Vulcan looks like and the fact that it carried nuclear weapon. ("Thunderball", the Bond movie after all.)

In reply to:

vadims: This is also the very last version for CS6 users:
http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2015/07/update-to-camera-support-policy-in-cs6.html

So, it's end of the road for those who tried to stick with stand-alone PS. (Well, it is possible to keep using it if you (a) stop using RAW, or (b) stop buying new cameras, or (c) convert your RAWs to DNGs using Adobe's DNG converter).

b. and c. vitiate a.

Then:

CaptureOne.

Corel, Aftershot.

DXO.

The freeware, Rawtherapee.

Iridient for Mac.

The much improved Silkypix 6.

AbrasiveReducer: How about a lens profile that turns files from the Otus into velvety LensBaby shots? That would be worth paying $120 a year.

Try the plug-in Lens Effects from Topaz.

One time $50.

Takes practice and skill.

Certainly runs in Elements too.

ArtAlt: We need the option of lossless raw. It is very odd to work so hard to achieve extra resolution and then toss out some of that resolution via lossy compression. Sony mirrorless is still a work in progress, but the progress is very rapid indeed.

The raws I've seen from this have the colour problems of every Sony that shoots compressed raws. I is NOT simply dynamic range thing.

August 1st, there are raws at PhotographBlog, posted July 30th.

There are real world raws for download over at PhotographBlog dot com.

They used several different lenses in their testing.

In reply to:

munro harrap: And, as writers in forums here have confirmed, a couple of drops of water, and it'll just die, wont work, finished! FYI, I have several Sonys, but I just wish I could rename their files in-camera, as I can on my Nikon whose sensors are Sony, and whose batteries last for THREE times the number of shots at least.

I have lost irretrieveably valuable work overwriting RAW files by mistake because I cannot rename them.

What soes this tell you about Sony, as a company??

mh:

Don't make the mistake of implying that Nikon only uses Sony sensors.

PB:

You're free to look up the US Navy "Blue Angels"; this isn't necessarily an airshow involving other military aircraft.

It's a US Navy thing, I'm sure they've flown at airshows, but not with other aircraft in the stunt formation.

So there's no reason to expect a Vulcan here.

As for the C130 labeled "Blue Angels", two things:

Those aren't jets above it. They are prop planes that happen to be blue.

And the cargo plane is obviously a support aircraft for the "Blue Angels" team.

You do understand that the team travels with mechanics and spare parts?

Paul:

In this context "Vulcan" can only refer to the Avro Vulcan, a British strategic bomber.

Not a huge plane, but not one for airshow formation stunt flying.

gr1fter: Is this camera supposed to compete with the GoPro or a different market? Curious how the image quality is vs a GoPro Hero4 Silver or Black.

It's not that kind of camera.

corkymiller46: Am I alone unable to see past the obnoxious noise and pollution of this hobby?

corkymiller46:

And you never use anything that's been on a jet plane?

It's an US Navy demonstration team.

HowaboutRAW: Outdoor raws?

Not "raws" processed to jpeg with ACR.

darktiger:

Given that the TG-3 is nearly exactly the same camera, but without raw: Are there many reports of the TG-3 failing?

Also my question wasn't about the durability of the TG-4, my question was a very specific request for raws to download.

I can't comment on Olympus customer support, and would certainly hope, that's hope, that your experience with failing hardware and less than helpful customer support was an outlier.

In reply to:

CameraLabTester: Every serious brand new camera has a RAW converter for FREE in the bundled software.

It's time to dust off those camera's software CD's and give it a try.

If you don't want to be a monetary zombie, there are other ways around it...

.

Barry Pearson:

The free RawTherapee 4.2 is very good with Fuji Xtrans files.

It's decent for freeware with other file types.

PSE is probably stronger than RT for most files. But I've not used PSE since V9, so can't compare the current version of PSE to RT 4.

riveredger: Intuitively, I suspect anyone who thinks $10/month is outrageous is using a pirated copy of it now, or doesn't own it all.

riveredger:

It's not that the old versions work.

It's that the new versions die if you don't pay, which is not the old system.

See the difference between old system and new system.

You went on about the new system being cheaper, which it sort of is, but neglected this huge point about th new system failing once you don't pay.

ACR 9.1.1, PhotoShop CS6: Does NOT open high resolution PEFs from the Pentax K3II.

Win7.

That's annoying, particularly since support has stopped for ACR 9 within CS6.

Can open K3II high res DNGs though.

WACON,

Okay, but I was looking for raws to extract myself.

I have some indoor ones, but nothing in the water.

IA:

CaptureOne isn't best for all file types. Or for every ISO.

Though, right, PhotoShop CS6 will be really powerful software for 10 years, even without and updated ACR.

In reply to:

TN Args: I recommend DPR remove all comments that are overtly political -- including accusations that DPR are overtly political (because such comments are actually an overtly political statement by the commentator).

All I see is a bunch of interesting photos. I don't see any policy statements or policy position or implicit political endorsement in the article.

The comments I see are certainly against the forum rules on trolling (deliberately antagonizing other forum users, who may not share the political rage of the posts), and Bashing (in this case a political 'brand' to which many people would feel some loyalty or liking).

Seriously -- although my politics is a million miles from that of the people in the photos, I'm still offended by the comments.

"cheap propaganda, half-truths and outright lies" like those Cheney used to sell the invasion of Iraq.

But hey, the New York Times, CNN, CBS, bought into those "cheap" lies.
