On Sony a7S used to shoot Chevrolet commercial article (275 comments in total)
In reply to:

Paul Guba: Oddly it doesn't say why use this camera. With a budget and so many known cameras available why would you choose to experiment on a high budget, high pressure job. Why do I feel like I am not being given the whole story?

I have to correct myself: s-log2 is a gamma curve which can be used and 4k is outputted via hdmi

Lab D, the A7s does have a pro codec (s-log) and it can output raw via hdmi

This has a lot of potential. I actually liked the slight animated morphing look in the rock Climb. Makes me wonder what could be achieved With a decent camera and at what resolution it can be rendered out at.

patcam7122: Did I strike a nerve, Simon? If you look at other comments here you'll see I'm certainly not alone in finding this article was a waste of space.

I think patcam7122 is a Waste of Space.

Michael Ma: The concept has potential, but needs a lot of work. Honestly, it would be a lot more interesting if you just shot it on a white background with a flash. Flash may be limited to 1/250s, but that's only how long the shutter is open. The flash of light only lasts a few thousandths of a second, which would produce non-blurry results.

If you're going to shoot outdoors, maybe try to work with colors that complement each other. (Visiting Adobe Kuler for guidance).

Also, the background is distracting. Go for a shallow DOF which would turn your background into more of a watercolor canvas rather than a background full of attention-stealing objects in the background.

Also, learn to work in RAW and enhance colors by using the sliders for HSL. The colors in the paint are unnecessarily flat.

white background and flash, comp. colors, shallow dof, sounds like something for boring baby portraits. These Pictures work because the colors, subject and setting are so alien to one another.

This is good news. Lightroom did some weird stuff to one of my 7d files one time, canon saved the day with a perfect render. Looking forward to giving the new version a spin.

Pretty cool, although I would have slowed it down to about 60% in mid rotation.

Marla2008, swap the Word 'we' With 'they', you are still an individual you know.

Nice body, reasonable price, but for crying out loud look at the price of the two available lenses!!! I'd only be interested if sigma can pull a half decent lense to fit the T at half the lieca cost.

Looks like android and Windows tablet users on the Photoshop photography program are due for a discount then.

ybizzle: Nokia seems to be going backwards with the cameras in their phones. You had the best with the 808, then the 1020 with a smaller sensor and now this with even smaller sensor! What's going on?

Not going backwards, I would say expanding the range.

mgblack74: So Panasonic comes out with a camera that does just about everything a GoPro does except they add a fragile cable that attaches to a Sony Walkman like device to strap to your arm. Or that necessitates 2 points of contact on any board sport. Or is not quad copter friendly at all. But hey, your aunt can film her hat making and your dad can get close ups of his carburetor like its 1983 again. Wicked.

gopro can't do 4k 30p like the panny cam can, gopro only reaches 4k 15p

Bassman2003: I think consumers do not trust the software makers to actually add great new features once they get the gravy train going. For many years, Adobe has come out with a new version rather than fix the bugs in the exisiting version. The only incentive for the companies was the fear that people would not purchase their upgrade if it did not have better features/performance. If the companies know you are paying no matter what, will they innovate or just phone it in? We will see...

Smeggypants, you may be right but if I purchase a book or cd or mp3 file i can read or listen for as long as I like without on going COSTs. My book or Music will not disapear if I stop paying.

In reply to:

dynaxx: "re-imagine" ? I know language has to adapt to new concepts but this mish-mash of mediocre attempts at tromp l'oeil doesn't deserve a new word nor our wasted time in looking at them

No because reimagining is done in a single instance, just like a refill.

'Call me pedantic but shouldn't imagining precede reimagining ?'

look at it this way, each picture is a reimagination of the first or prior.

EricoftheNorth: I don't care about this article. It's fine, whatever. Seems cool.

But.

If I see 'reimagine' or 'rethink' or 're-ANYTHING' ever again, somebody is going to to be indicted.

IN WORD COURT.

And this is why nobody plays wordfued with Eric anymore
