Roland Karlsson: Cutting jobs and raising more money and spending it on a show room in Tokyo. My experience with several years of raising even more money is that the last money funder owns most of the company and the original people starting the venture is now thinned out in ownership till nearly nothing and are already losers, even if there is a success. Maybe the original starters of the company have succeeded in avoiding that trap. But ... I cannot really see how.
The preparation for this showroom probably started before they decided to cut jobs. Just saying
Kim Letkeman: Anyone who is running the latest versions of LR on a 32 bit machine it probably a masochist. Limited memory, limited bandwidth ... nothing is good about that combination. So Adobe is dead right to make 32 bit system obsolete. Heck, when was the last time you saw a 32 bit system for sale (that wasn't one of those crap brands created for suckers.)
string, the joy of noise making
dangie: As Lightroom prides itself on its organising qualities it needs to have its own method of finding duplicate images, instead of having to download and pay for an external plugin.
it has the option to find duplicates on import, but that may not work depending on the situation
marc petzold: What keeps me away from LT for ages: That damn catalogue everything thing, and then it's way sluggish from operation & behaviour, Adobe should really speed things up.
sure it's not as swift as windows explorer or mac finder but these days if you have 8GB of RAM and a good computer the catalog system and browser is not too bad. better than it was in say LR3
Ad B: Hi,
was it forbidden to make pictures above ISO1600??These pics can be made by every pretty good camera.
At the Photokina I tried the NX1, at the cameramonitor it had better pics at ISO12800 as my E-M5 with ISO6400.To make a compareson at lower, usefull ISOs, you need a bigger and better screen (a computer).(Or Dpreview...)
@Barney OMG SO IT IS A CONSPIRACY.. SOMETIMES!!?!
not being serious, sorry
Mike FL: For Zoom = F2.8 all the way with small sensor/body, you can get Panasonic FZ200 @$379 as today's price (10-31-2014) while Stylus 1 is about $600 from respectable sellers.
Other than huge price difference, there are PROs and CONs, but FZ200 has much wide (24mm vs 28mm) and longer (600mm vs 300mm) zoom, and SHARPER lens.

Why FZ200 is better choice:http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Olympus_STYLUS_1/verdict.shtml
ahahah. so sad, people here live to burn. burn each other, burn camera descriptions, burn burn burn
Glen Barrington: I've never used the Stylus, that sort of camera doesn't appeal to me. I'm an E-M10 sort of person. But I can't understand the hateful comments.
1) It's a camera, not the cure for cancer.2) Olympus must see a market for such a camera. It seems to me, they should have a right to pursue any market they choose.3) Its appearance is unlikely to throw anyone out of work or cause economic chaos.4) Don't like it? Then don't buy it.
I can understand statements like "I wish it had. . . ." or "I wouldn't use that camera because . . . " But the anger and hate is odd.
sh&&ting on camera designs that you don't like is the purpose of dpreview
nothing so satisfying as trash-talking imaging technology that doesn't float your boat.
yawn T5.0-8.9 what is this amateur hour time to graduate from preschool canon. i don't care if it weighs 100kg f2.8 or go home
PeterBM: Still waiting "my" good camera:- compact with large sensor- good fixed lens, min range 28-135, possibly more- max aperture 2.8, possibly better- overall good features (photo quality, responsiveness, focus accuracy, ...)- and absolutely a fully articulated screen
get ready to wait for the next iteration of the universe
xeriwthe: ah, beautiful. but i'm still holding out for the manual zoom 1" from fuji :) fingers crossed
to each his own, many fans of the x10 series for what it is
ah, beautiful. but i'm still holding out for the manual zoom 1" from fuji :) fingers crossed
offtheback: From a quick review of the comments,he may regret the photo being posted on DPREVIEW.
he is taking one for the team coming onto dpreview after what he learned
i'm glad people are against any sort of innovation. canikon all the way!
camera gear really brings out the best in people
Johannes Zander: So no need for autofocus?And can it take video which can be re-focused? Would be great, no need for focus puller any more.
still requires autofocus. there is a range around which you can effectively refocus
nice sample photos. the image quality is quite nice too. tempting..
i like the ultra chiseled ultra clean look, very apple
aliasfox: Sports is an obvious use case. Sports news is usually viewed on the web or newsprint, so 5MP is fine. With the Lytro, the photographer never has to wait for any kind of focusing - no PDAF, no CDAF, no focus lag whatsoever. As soon as Lebron jumps to make his basket, the photographer hits the shutter, focuses later for the perfect shot every time.
With light field, it should be possible to imitate a FF camera at F/2.8 - set the lens at 85mm equivalent and get FF style portraits anytime. An event photographer could use this to tweak images to clients' desires ("I want Mom over there to be in focus" or "Blur the background more, it's too distracting"). It essentially decouples the artistic (DoF) from the exposure (aperture) equation.
Obviously, neither of these are necessarily common use cases, and this field (no pun intended) still has a ways to go. But if they keep developing it, who knows. In 3-4 years we might have a high ISO, fast shooting FF model with 120 MR/16MP output.
Since this camera is using software algorithms to render a final image based on depth information at every pixel (as far as I know) it can blur the 'background' as much as it wants to emulate any type of lens, in a way. Kind of like how the new Google camera bokeh trickery works. Certainly not 'real' dof effect but as long as it's good enough for appearances...
