On Walmart sues photographer's widow over family pictures article (200 comments in total)
In reply to:

bob elkind: Why does the photographer own the rights to these photos?

If the photographer hired the Waltons as models for his photos, and the Waltons signed a model release, then yes -- the photographer owns full rights.

I suspect that the Waltons hired the photographer to photograph them, the Waltons did not sign a model release (why would they?), in which case the photographer does not own the rights to these photos.

I think the photog (or his heirs) own the rights because that was the deal struck back when - he surely only charged for the prints actually delivered, not for an unlimited number of prints to be made in the future, or rights to copies eventually made by others. I could be wrong, but that's the way things worked, and still do AFAIK.

I would have gone for the 3-series firmware releases for the X-Pro 1. Great value for money. Not on the list - sigh.

On Fujifilm X-M1 Review preview (220 comments in total)

Can anyone confirm (or not) that this camera will also work with the regular FX lenses that have an aperture ring, and if so, is the aperture controlled by the ring or by the camera?

To me, at these standard settings, the only material difference I can see, besides the moiré issue, is that PN seems to have more saturated colours and slightly higher contrast than ACR. I think these issues, if you regard them as such, could be fixed in ACR without much difficulty.

On Canon releases promised Firmware v2.0.0 for EOS 7D article (104 comments in total)
In reply to:

PicOne: So, the question is, did Canon have this plan way back when they launched the 7D originally? How long ago would they have had to start development /R&D for a 7D2 that they decided not to, and how long have they known that firmware could be published to accomplish almost the same thing?

Will the 1dX have a IdX2, or will it be firmware? Will 5dIV be about in a couple year, or a 5dIII firmware update?

My guess is they knew it could be done, but firmware development also takes time, so they had a card up their sleeve for when they needed it.

ShutterbugDougG: I appreciate Canon's 7D firmware update overview webpage, the short video, additional features page, helpful 1.x/2.x comparison chart; very thoughtful.

I'd appreciate an updated manual - complete, current documentation for new and updated features.

There is an updated manual online, and a page giving the highlights of the new features (separate download).

This first step into the mirrorless world seems designed to sell lots of cameras to mainstream / occasional photogs. No surprise there. I hope they follow it up later with a slightly larger body incorporating at least an EVF (preferably a hybrid VF à la Fuji) on the left top rear of the camera (please!) and much more accessible / ergonomic manual controls.

Huge contrast range in this subject, handled rather well, I thought.

Does setting 100% as the scale mean one dot on the screen per pixel in the image? At that setting it looks very sharp to me. Slightly soft at 200% setting. At 400% I see obvious pixellation, not surprising.
