On Apple releases 8GB version of iPhone 5c post (35 comments in total)
In reply to:

Daedbird: So, if Apple had millions of 5Cs sitting around, wouldn't they just drop the price of the 16gb model? I think the 5C is doing ok, but obviously there is a belief they needed a cheaper model....

Which leads to my first thought: Did they just take the large 16G inventory and cripple it to 8G with a software 'upgrade'?

Why not offer raw processing power in the cloud; so you send a raw files with adjustments and sliders for various parameters and the cloud instantaneously sends back a draft which you can keep or continue to adjust?
Is this unrealistic? This might be worth $99 month if it were awesome.

Can this help me with my 100-400 L lens either standalone or with extender? If so, what focus settings are optimal?

Thanks,
Will

nofumble: From lenstip.com

Pros:
solid casing,
excellent image quality in the frame centre,
very good image quality on the edge of the APS-C sensor,
negligent longitudinal chromatic aberration,
great coma correction,
slight astigmatism,
low vignetting on APS-C,
silent, quick and accurate autofocus.

Cons:
lateral chromatic aberration corrected in a worse way than that of the rivals,
huge vignetting on full frame,
weak performance against bright light,
exorbitant price

"negligent longitudinal chromatic aberration"

That's negligible; almost opposite meaning

Tape5: Human aspects of photography are often not talked about. Among these is how a person relates emotionally and physically to a camera they are holding in their hands.

If you love your Canon or Nikon or any other brand, that counts. It is important and should be a factor in my view to choose a brand against another. Don’t let anyone make you feel bad about your choices because we ALL know that the current offerings are way more than sufficient for a person to produce good photographs. Especially at this price range.

Some of my all time favorite photos in my childhood were taken with my dad’s Lubitel. What I never forget, is how he genuinely loved his camera and how he always smiled when he looked down into its viewfinder.

I agree; maybe its petty, but as an enthusist Canon user for over 25 years, I don't even like the look of the red Nikon swoosh. I am most inclined to wait for the most personally compatible Canon model. After over a decade, I still really really love my first long L lens, the 300 F4 IS. The bokeh just blows me away. I really don't underestand the typical conversation here regarding whether to change brands. It would be like changing families.

This will open commercial photography to the same games as Domain Name ownership offers. Just go out and photograph all the tourist attractions near you, apply some NIK filters, copyright it, and sit back to collect your gravy..
