On article Crossing the Bridge: Canon XC10 Review (260 comments in total)

Actually a camcorder with decent still pix capabilities, but with a lot of goodies in all areas for video shooting, ideal as a backup unit for reporting purposes. Aiming in news market and various semi pro segments justifies its price as a handy tool.

aris14: I really can't see the needs of 100 Mp, but it's professionals cup of cake.
I really wonder who can see the difference of a 50 Mp image compared to an originally shot 100 Mp, no matter the final size to be printed.
Anyway, pros problems and tastes.

@MichaelK81: I know that well. The fact that plenty of times a big file is needed since landscape or portrait final output is to be decided... In this case we talk about pixel buffer files...
@Tella Day: You 're right up to a certain point... But pro photogs are not pixel peepers...

Retina displays? Even a 16k retina display (does not exist) can show all the detail of this giant... Scientific purposes? May be..!

Overpriced maybe because is aiming lateral pro needs in controlled situations, who just propose and someone else buys. They tell them it's Canon and it;s an affordable back up solution, looks and feels bulky and pro, they buy it, along with some features that probably suite them. Who cares?

On article Upwardly mobile: Sony a6300 Review (2077 comments in total)

Cam seems more than capable by fa in every aspect. Lenses used for review surely add to the images delivered as shown here.
There are two things that make me wonder.
First the audience to which this cam is aiming for. I think that the majority will not take advantage of its fine qualities overall. But this surely has nothing to do with the cam.
Second, and that has to do with all manufacturers. Invest in GUI and its concept. Comprehensive concept of GUI can make even a mediocre device a winner by giving the ability to its user to get the most out of it without fiddling around for its potential.
We have a serious tool here, no matter the usual fan boys argues that spice up any review.

kadardr: I have seen the silliest posts ever in this thread. This camera is the high ISO king for now. Full stop.

Ι am not a Nikon boy, but this cam is leading the high ISO race by any margin you like, small or big, irrelevant..! Full stop and period.

Marty4650: OK, lets put this in context.

In 2005 I paid $600 for a Panasonic FZ30. This was a nice 12X bridge camera with a pretty small sensor. The video was horrible, and the LCD was low resolution and very tiny.

But it was a great camera in it's day, but this new Sony beats it in virtually every category. Except price. Even when accounting for inflation, this camera costs a lot more than my FZ30 did. But you actually do get a lot more. The zoom range is larger, the aperture is faster, it has WIFI and NFC, the video quality is probably outstanding and it is even weather sealed.

If there is anyone left who wants a bridge camera, then this new Sony will be hard to beat.

@Marty4650
Nope! Bridge cams aim to an enthusiast and ...lazy audience that feels awfully when carrying a heavy bag with all these things in it, most of them they are more than familiar with photography, they also are well familiar with pp, they do have access (no matter how) to dslrs any time they want to and their prints for their needs are just fine... These guys usually carry a decent bag or cam case with their cam plus a filter a battery pack a couple of cards. And that only if they have a super zoom cam otherwise they carry them in their large pockets.

aris14: Nik's suite is an excellent tool, maybe the best overall for pp, combining thorough image processing (for the few who know what image is) with delicate creative capabilities. I don't know the sales of the company, but it seems to me that they were rather poor to Google's standards to give it for free. I guess there are few, even among pros, who can take the most out of these tools for getting the right result for what they really have in their minds as a desired result. I really don't get the point of free downloading. But from the other hand I do not have a clue for being somehow suspicious about it...

Power games ... And we all know who pays for for it...

I still have me FZ30 and even now, no matter what you correctly mentioned, delivers better than more bridge cams (including FZ50) image quality in reasonable conditions. My point is that bridge cams is a niche involving serious enthusiasts among others and silly overpricing is confronted with lough, to say the least. I say that a bridge cam should always cost less than a $1.000. Enthusiasts usually have access in other cams too...

For publicity and some "well" hidden war between the marketing departments of manufacturers, to say the least.

Shiranai: Now that I've tried it out I really don't know why they charged $150 for that anyways. After all it's just a bunch of filters that almost every smarthphone app offers for free. Although I really like the area correction feature, I get better results working only in lightroom/camera raw.
Almost all give your picture that filtered look. And thats something I'd rather avoid.

I use Adobe' s products from 1990 and Lightroom from September 2006. And yes Adobe was never the fastest kid on town and if I can get the same results, if not better in some instances, in let's say half time, using a plugin or whatever s/w, I will surely use it no matter what.

It;s quite useless to try to rationalize our likes and expectations from any manufacturer trying to figure out what their marketeers have in mind so to fit in their beliefs as potential customers.

Speaking for mag's size the maximum double spread size of the 99,9% of mags we can buy, is 48 x 23,5 cm (some few), 46 x 29,7 cm (rare enough) and 21 x 28 cm (the more common). That means 24 Mp for the first case is enough, 18 and 15 Mp respectively for the rest. If the publishers cooperate with a serious press then they print their mags rasterized in what we call FM screening meaning that 250 dpi is more than enough resulting in a 20% reduction of Mp original pix size required.
To my experience I cannot see the reason for more than 4 "good" stops in the 99,99% of any instance and I fully agree with @rusk. The rest is just a show-off of manufacturers probably in their effort to camouflage any structural design problems of their products.

Dear all. I have seen hundreds of people working in pp using any s/w you may imagine to deliver the result they wanted ot they have been asked for. At least one out of 5 could destroy any machine no matter how ..fed this machine was. A significant majority usually produced something that a. they did not have in mind to deliver, b. it was completely out of the result that was asked.
The common cause for producing such a drama, was that they did not have the slightest idea of what light is. They have just, somehow, managed to get to know to press buttons and move sliders with the speed of light, usually assuming that they were in the right way to deliver, Universe know what they had in mind or understood what they were asked to deliver. Generally speaking, to my experience only 1 out of 20 can really deliver. The same or less stands for people who use mainly ps for creative purpose. It's waste of time arguing with those people, you can like them though as whatever...
