FodgeandDurn: These comments are so disappointing.

For better or worse it's a glimpse into an epoch defining moment in history, something we sometimes forget photography can do while worrying about F stop conversions.

I'm sure I wouldn't agree with half if you about the reasons for 9/11 or the decisions that followed the aftermath, but I'm not going to argue with any of you about it on here.

Indeed "it" does.

alex:

PhotoShop is updated to new versions of Camera Raw. Albeit, Adobe has stopped updating CS5.

Peiasdf: Was this back when photographer still have access to Whitehouse or are these staff photographer's work?

Also. I can only imagine how much better the quality would be if a modern FF was used without flash.

J A C S:

Better collection of office photos that Salon posted, not one of Cheney with his feet up:

jdshaw: Why are we subjected to the despicable Dick Cheney in DP Review?

P:

Not simply shot by a journalist.

Photo journalists didn't have free reign of the Cheney White House, and they don't in the Obama White House.

Peiasdf:

This isn't a photojournalist in the normal sense, this is an approved White House photographer. Who may also have worked as a photojournalist, but this is not 5 photojournalists just shooting that day in White House and bunker offices.

J A C S,

Or that photo was staged days later not in a bunker.

The epoch defining "moment" was the various reactions of the USA.

I can think of another epoch defining moment from Dec. 2000.

Cheney was moved to a bunker after the second plane hit.

And approved photographers still have access to the White House.

You're confusing a tour group rule with this, and tour groups aren't in the offices.

J A C S: Reminds me of why I stopped shooting in the film era.

It's somebody who doesn't know how to scan film. It's not actually real easy to do well.

Marty4650: "Somewhat banal" is a sign of competence. People who know what they are doing put their heads down and go to work when a crisis happens. It actually should be business as usual.

Odds are, they were not discussing amnesty for the terrorists, or any attempt to reach out to help understand the radicals. They were probably busy planning "what should we do next" to prevent similar attacks.

Marty:

What's this "you" crap?

And then there's a problem with your logic here:

"And even if you didn't vote for him because you are a foreigner..."

What part of the point "and the next guy continued this abuse" did you not understand?

You don't like the fact that you got called out for making up things.

And what did these guys do? (Well besides perhaps saying "Biin Laden, that's the guy we were warned about, 2 or 3 times, right?")

Invade one country to chase a single terrorist.

Drop that project. But still occupy the country and get to be real unpopular with the locals.

Invade another country that had nothing whatsoever to do with this situation in New York.

Screw that project up too.

Leave both for the next guy.

Oh, and they, Bush/Cheney, made it much easier for the NSA to track comments like these. And the next guy continued this abuse.

alex:

Even DNGs have changed over the years. Newish ones don't open with older software, software that has no problem with old DNGs.

You see a camera company is going to say: "we think we can get better results if we process the data a bit differently".

Then what about non-Bayer pattered RGB sensors?

Leica, Pentax and Ricoh all shoot DNGs.

In reply to:

HowaboutRAW: Well I guess it’s good to be reminded that helicopters get a lot of use in war zones and have a lot to do with supporting the fight–but why those warzones exist in 2015 is a problem.

Then it’s a well enough composed image, but Hollywood has used things very similar again and again.

It’s also an image newspapers use to portray the action of battle, or escape from danger, since it is a transport helicopter.

(It’s possible an Air National Guard helicopter is involved fighting a forest fire here. But it sure looks like a warzone. And I can’t really think of a war that the US has any business being involved in in 2015.)

Okay, interesting to learn.

Didn't know about battle simulations at air shows.

In reply to:

Segaman: This is one of the main reason I stay away from Nikon.....

Segaman:

Because cars, or computers or big photo copiers, or factory air compressors, or machine tools never need repair. Not ever. And there's never any down time.

If you're working as a photographer, you'd have a second option or even third.

You're referring to people who aren't really working photographers.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV First Impressions Review preview (1263 comments in total)
In reply to:

photosen: Tech tour de force by Sony, and an easy answer to the typical "what's the best pocketable camera I can buy?" question. Saw version III in person, the geek in me wanted it really bad, the photographer cringed at the ergonomics. I hope they sell by the thousands, won't compensate for poor composition and no knowledge of technique.

It's not a tech tour de force until it can record 30 min of 4K video without stopping.

There is no significant difference in the ergonomics of III and this new IV.

Do your friends actually own effected D750 bodies?
