On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2696 comments in total)

Question about the sensor: all the talk is about the sensor and focusing. Is there anything to suggest that things like dynamic range or high ISO will be improved with this sensor or is it all about focus?

On onOne Software's Perfect Effects 8 available for free article (117 comments in total)

I got this free a couple of months ago on a similar promo somewhere. Since I have NIK, I use this for one simple but REALLY effective preset - the dynamic contrast. I just use the 'Normal' setting, the preset at the top left and just use its default amount. It adds just the right amount of punch to the image. Very subtle but super nice. Then I bring it into LR or NIK as needed. Totally worth the price of admission.

On Adobe expands Photoshop and Lightroom offer article (628 comments in total)

I've been waiting for the price to come down. Used the phone number and changed my PS only cloud subscription to PS + LR and got both for half what I was paying. It doesn't take very much time saving with state-of-the-art software to be easily worth $10 a month. I get why so many people are mad, but for me, the minimal monthly cost (yes, that might go up in the future) is a bargain. If they raise the price to something stupid, I'll bail and go with an alternative. But for now, this is a great deal.

On Olympus stems losses but PEN sales disappoint article (233 comments in total)

BobT3218: In hindsight, Olympus may have been better off continuing on their original push of making 4/3 a truly pro alternative rather than being distracted by m4/3. I fear they are now too far behind in the pro market, except for lenses, and are are being faced with a fizzling of m4/3 as Nikon are finding.

Enter Fuji with a bigger, cleaner sensor than 4/3, great lenses, more dynamic range and the smaller, lighter system you mention.

Never mind. I see it's 85mm.

Did I miss the focal length? Anybody know what it is?

How will the high ISO performance be on this new style sensor? The DP's are pretty well known for a lot of noise above ISO 400 compared to other modern sensors.

On Fujifilm X100S preview (218 comments in total)

If this new sensor is like the XE-1/XPro1, does that mean that the X100S now shares the RAW processing issues of those cams?

On The Lightroom catalog article (304 comments in total)

I think a composite of the two systems works best and is logical. I have a variety of folders for different broad categories and find it's not a hassle to duplicate some images that might fall in two categories. But then I love how LR is able to use keywording and collections to further identify images as to type or a classification that you will be using but haven't yet.

On Canon EOS 6D preview (1035 comments in total)

This camera is a blessing being a new low cost option for great Canon glass, particularly Tilt/shift lenses in which I'm interested. I like to print large. Some of us still do. I also shoot at night, on a tripod so focusing isn't an issue. Even in the daylight, I love to shoot on a tripod at base ISO's at f11. For many reasons, for photogs that came from a Medium Format background, this camera is great new addition to the lineup. Add the ability to have a more compact FF, low noise at higher ISO's with all that great glass. This camera is a perfect 'tool' for many pro's and serious photogs. "Stupid camera for clueless masses" - what an idiotic and narrow minded opinion. Clearly, it's not cameras that are stupid.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 Preview preview (416 comments in total)

Video notwithstanding, how will the image quality compare to the G5? I'm getting a little interested coming from a 60D with large, heavy lenses and would love to downsize but not at the expense of IQ. My Holy Grail is 16X24 prints with great inherent sharpness. My Canon lenses give me that. I've always liked the Lumix but never trusted the smaller 4/3 sensors but I'm reading that the gap is closing.

Sure would love to see a 30mm version. Too long for normal for cropped.
