Something tells me that Drone manufacturers will be obliged to integrate in their software in the near future something cute that will make all drone' s data available to ...whom it may concern.

On article JPEG Committee contemplates adding DRM to image format (186 comments in total)

TTIP in photography?
JPEG committee should have a word or two with Fb, not the file format.
They can also add a selective optional feature when saving in Jpeg ff so to produce a lores instant when saving a file with whatever attributes you may like.

Τhis is a fact!

On article Ricoh teases spring 2016 full-frame Pentax DSLR debut (528 comments in total)

My first SLR was an MX with the 1.4/50mm SMC lens, followed by some more great SMC lenses.
Pentax, to my opinion, has to offer excellent sealed bodies and a series of lenses with the mount that made the brand famous. Lenses that were "painting" the subject, without the annoying trendy over sharpening at those days, thus delivering that almost three dimensional result which only Leica and Zeiss could deliver. Lenses in harmony with sensor.
The rest are rather technicalities and can be easily added anytime.
But you can't make a good wine without fine grapes, perhaps you can do interesting chemistry, but no wine...

An advice to Epson:
Make your printing heads compartment sealing in a relevant humidity environment after shutting down the machines (rechargeable batteries can run the mechanism for at least 6 months). Modify your ink tanks so to be refilled from bottles with your ink that they don't include the cost of the ink tank. Pls remember to ask for my bank account for the idea.

belle100: First, printer companies are notoriously not green, so why all these complaints. To profiteering from dirt cheap ink, they let the users to dump millions and millions of printers in the landfill. I hate HP.

Second, I don't understand why they have to put a monitor panel and all these buttons on a printer, can't they just put a single LED and one button on the panel and allows a phone/tablet to run an app to do the controller instead. It would make a huge saving for all parties involved and do the Earth a big favour. Thank you.

Ecology is a very serious matter to leave it to ecologists...
For a lot of reasons...

1. Cute
2. Most people can't tell the difference from 4 or 6 or 8 inks used for printing a pic.
3. Inkjets deliver higher quality than dye subs.
4. Nozzle issue was never a problem to serious users.
5. Epson's build quality is higher than its competitors.
6. Typically silly overpriced device.

In reply to:

aris14: Dear DPR
Take a good tripod.
Take a Canon or Nikon FF camera (DPR's choice).
Take 2 from the new Zeiss lenses (you chose, DPR that is),
Take 2 same top lenses from Canon or Nikon and other manufacturers (DPR's choice, maximum 5 manufacturers in total).
Make a really demanding composition of various materials, textures, colours etc.(Ask for a guy who can do it).
Light it as best as possible with a fine lighting unit (DPR's choice).
Measure the composition with an excellent light meter.
Shoot the subject three times in RAW+Jpeg fine, one in DoF optimum, one in max and one in min aperture in 100,1600 and 12800 ISO.
Upload the pictures.
Make no comments more than shooting parameters and gear plus two or three pictures of the set.
Make EXIF data unavailable the first 48 hours.
Then reveal EXIF data only to those who posted their comments in the first place.
Reveal EXIF data to all after seven days, but their comments will exist in a separate board.
Enjoy with us all...
Thx in advance.

@HowaboutRAW:

Well, from what I have seen, the results from various top line lenses and cameras, the differences in IQ is practically marginal in most cases. However some lenses and cams deliver a quality that its perception is rather hard to be described in photographic terms.
To be honest serious post processing can deliver outstanding images and without excessive touch up, just the basics maybe a little more.
Also, to be sincere, my opinion is that we can judge a picture only when we see it printed, so there is at least one factor involved (printing process, that is gear and material used).
I can still recall a picture (in jpg file format, mind you) taken with one of the most unaccepted kit lenses mounted on an entry level camera that after excessive pp looked so great printed that nobody could even imagine the package from which was produced.
A top lens would save us some hours of pp.
A top lens can produce results that enhance creativity and it's too hard for s/o to find it out.

aris14: The most serious all-around pro tool followed by Pentax's 645...
Btw a comparison of the above would be interesting as showcase.

I am glad that I caused this interesting discussion.
Allow me to clarify one thing.
It is obvious that a serious pro tool is something quite focused to a specific work.
I guess u all understand that an all rounder has an area/field in which excels whilst in other can perform in high standards maybe with a little more "work" or even photog's fitness.

In reply to:

phazelag: The FZ1000 jpegs and raws all look better at 3200 and up. I wonder if Sony is not capable of getting the most out of their sensors. I expected cleaner with the talk of the stacked sensor.

We have an interesting case here.
The three main 1' niche FZ 1000's competitors are:
1. Delivering silly expensive product, with less zoom range and not fully developed sensor (RX10 II)
2. Delivering expensive product with less videography specs, more zoom range, inferior IQ -no matter why (Canon).
3. Delivering expensive product with less videography specs, great zoom range, inferior IQ -no matter why (Nikon).
Of course we cannot ignore the fact that the three competitors added a lot of extra features to their products so to somehow differentiate, but not in IQ or overall performance.
It's pointless to claim build quality, zoom power and trillions of focusing points if you cannot deliver comparable IQ, at least in RAW (their Jpeg are suffering from over sharpening more or less), since you can find those specs in far cheaper proposals.
Their products seem interesting but they do not leave a mark where it counts.
