Gazeomon: One cannot even delete PHOTOS from the hard drive and free some disc space.
Every time I import images into Lightroom, this crappy PHOTO has to be clicked out of my sight. Just another APPLE p-ss off.

Just turn that off. Easy peasy.

flypaul: Apple are indeed now a consumer gadget company and any serious amateur or pro would be wise to wonder about the future and the company's support for serious software and even hardware long term. They have a bad record and it may be time to "think different" before they drop Mac altogether.
"One more thing',my MacBook Pro is due for replacement in 4 months and if I'm not satisfied by then I'm gone.

Depends if you include dual-booting or the myriad of virtualization products as the "OSX platform". All three run fine on Macs.

PhotoKhan: I said this many years ago, I'll repeat it now for the benefit of avoiding any more future hassle.

The sooner any professional or advanced amateur photographer who rely in Raw output starts using LR and exploring it in order to get the amazing potential it entails, the sooner you'll be doing yourself an huge, mind-peace-inducing favor.

"Cool. See you in few years."

Without competition, Lightroom will have the same features and problems as now, and cost 3 times as much.

Lightroom doesn't work for me. It's not rubbish, I just don't like it.

Darktable is not bad, but it's not quite there yet for me.

Think I'll stick with Capture One, thanks. :-)

WolfyWho: It's unfortunate they don't support RAW with these cameras.

I'm guessing that the RAW would need a lot of work with a 30x lens in such a small package.

turvyT: I'm glad that DPR hired a photographer to shoot these sample pics. Nice.

You left out "and an outstanding photographic and all-round amazing person."

bluevellet: What's your favorite between the GH4 and E-M1?

And your favorite lens for the system?

How about the 75mm f/1.8? That would seem suited to the type of work exhibited in the article.

CNY_AP: Continuous AF in DSLRs isn't very good either unless they've greatly improved recently. I therefore use single shot AF for everything with my SLR.

"This is called a verb"

Actually, pretty sure this usage is an adjective. *ducks*

In reply to:

Serious Sam: The pro kit is currently selling for almost 3K (well 2.9)in Australia. This is same price as grey import D750 Kit. They need to drop the price by at least 30% to make it worth while to look at

For those who is welling to hand over 3K to Samsung for a Camera, you must be:
1 Clueless
2 Very Rich
3 Korean

or mix of the above.....

I love the what they say in the video made by TCSTV "The Mirrorless Party 2015" You can watch it here https://youtu.be/eplN_wI0AbA

Who is this Samsung........:P

How much is a grey market imported NX1 kit?

On Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal article (814 comments in total)
In reply to:

Kjell Olsson: We all know that Amazon owns DPR, but I thought that this fact wouldn´t affect DPR´s views and reviews and that every manufacturer would be treated in the same fair way.

As this article is written by a DPR "Reviewer / Staff Writer", I think the readers are entitled to an explanation to why this very biased article was published.

It´s time for Simon Joinson: Editor-in-Chief to enter the stage!

I also notice that the presentation of Dale Baskin has been altered today - after the animated discussion here started to heat up . Why?

"Written by an experienced video professional"

I think that's the key to this article.

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: Could you define "convergence" as opposed to "Hybrid"please. I fail to see the difference at the moment.

"So yeah - it's arguably the closest thing to a true 'convergence' product."

Hmm. Isn't it just the same thing but from the other side? It may be "true convergence" for a niche, but important market of journalists, but in terms of photographers who do video ... it's stills from a 1" sensor, with wide depth of field and less creative options.

Now maybe that points to further cameras in this line with APS-C & full-frame sensors, but in terms of photographers (who do video), this doesn't really seem like a step forward.

"True" convergence to me would suggest no compromise on either side of the equation.

Martin Datzinger: ZA 35/1.4: 79x112mm / 630g / €1600
ZM 35/1.4: 63x65mm / 381g / €2000
ZF 35/1.4: 78x120mm / 900g / €1650
Sigma 35/1.4: 77x94mm / 665g / €700
Nikon 35/1.4: 83x89.5mm / 600g / €1500

FWIW

Don't forget that these are launch RRPs too.

In reply to:

ChrisH37: $1600 for the 35 is 'intimidating' to say the least. Nearly double the launch price of the Sigma 35 ART (which works brilliantly via the LA-EA4)

I was weighing up going for a Sony a99 or an A7ii, as somebody who shoots at 35mm extensively I think the a99 has just gained a sale.

There are a LOT of 35mm lenses that will work on an A7ii that won't work on an A99.

Digital Shutterbug: I always said I would never fall for a scam like this. Now I'm having to eat those words.

I recognized early on that this was going to be a bust. All the emails were professionally written. Let the backers down about how things were going slower than they anticipated. Then, in the closing, pump you up as to how it was going to be a far superior product due to the re-design, better parts, faster firmware, etc.

It was clear to me that I had been duped. But, it was way too late to do anything about it. Once you made the commitment, you're all in.

They actually give the option for you to donate your funding to them for future projects. Are you kidding me? How many suckers will fall for that?

Another option is to accept a 50% refund in credit to be used in other Kickstarter projects. Once again, are you really serious? Sure I'd love to invest in another scam and loose the rest of my initial investment.

I still can't believe I fell for this. What was it PT Barnum said?

"All the emails were professionally written. Let the backers down about how things were going slower than they anticipated. Then, in the closing, pump you up as to how it was going to be a far superior product due to the re-design, better parts, faster firmware, etc."

I had the same feeling you had with the FlashQ project. It was pretty much exactly as above. Was waiting to hear that something had happened and it wasn't being produced. Then they shipped a great product, well-made, packaged well, and works beautifully.

Sometimes the flags aren't red.

On Astropad turns iPad into drawing tablet for Mac post (118 comments in total)
In reply to:

Princess Luna: Why would I waste my money on that crap. You have to lug a tablet and a mac, to use the freaked thing. the surface pro 2 gives me the BEST of both worlds and I love every second on this. The surface pro 2 has PhotoShop CS6 and illustrator CS6 And many other software installed that I love. and anything else I want on it. The pen may feel and look like crap. I LOVE IT. Wacom technology in it too.
My spouse can be driving and I can digital scrapbook at the same time, when he got to go the medical appointments, its great for sketching and art too.

The iPad is overpriced junk, with very limited features. If you want a real tablet with no limit, go with surface pro, if you want a kid toy sick with the I crap.

Ps I own a wacom 13hd tablet. Like to put it to use. But my surface pro gave me a sky with no limit.

It's for people who already have iPads to extend the gear they already have, not those looking for $800 alternatives.

Thuravi Kumaaran: If we count integrity in votes, the value may vanish.

please go through the fallowing link and Rack Zoom Focus issues with mirror less cameras.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmlzqAy5Q68

If I go for a landscape camera for the time being, Nikon 810 is my choice.

From my limited understanding, I can say that for the time being, Canon 7DM2 is the best APSC- sensor wildlife, sports camera and the world's best sports camera in most artificial light.

Thank you.

Yes, thank you too. Not many can state the obvious that a $2300 camera, and an $1800 camera, are likely to be better in some ways than a $550 camera.

That is a truth I could not have seen without your help.

Papi61: I'm sure pretty soon Apple will release a laptop with a touch screen, and maybe a pen like the Surface's. Most likely they will just copy the Surface. And then all the fanboys who have ridiculed those ideas will totally embrace them. You know, like they used to make fun of smaller tablets, larger phones and phablets. Until Apple copied all of that...and then it became absolutely great.

Meanwhile they have to resort to clunky solutions like these, because a true Apple soldier would never EVER buy anything made by another company, least of all from Microsoft, the devil incarnate... ;)

OK, you win. Enjoy your pyrrhic victory.

Ha ha. I'm not a fanboy either. Your radar is way off. Good luck with that.
