backayonder: Who gets paid the photographer?

@backayonder: if your work is NoCommercial ("NC") licensed, or All Rights Reserved, the only way people other that you can buy your work is if you're approved for inclusion in the Flickr Marketplace. In that case, you'd receive 51% of net sales.

Flickr clarified the situation a couple days after this story appeared:

backupgeek: Flickr making a profit printing your pictures, while you make nothing.

@Gregg Tavares: to be precise, if the license is one of the NoCommercial ("NC") variants, or is "All Rights Reserved", it isn't available for printing by anyone but the photographer. If your work is licensed thusly, you can apply for inclusion in the Flickr Marketplace - if approved, you receive 51% of net sales.


All in all, quite a reasonable set of options!

Some additional details are now available:


- if you want your CC-licensed works to be automatically available through Wall Art, use one of the non-NC licenses. And vice versa: if you want to exclude yours from automatic availability as Wall Art, use a NC license, or "all rights reserved".

- you can choose to have your work made available through Wall Art, and be paid for it. In that case, request inclusion in the Flickr Marketplace, and their curation team will assess your work. Photographers receive 51% of net sales.

BeaverTerror: I wonder whether the guy whose job it is to write this press release actually believes in the BS he's spewing, or if he's rolling his eyes with the rest of us.

"Not intended to be judged against other cameras"
"BOLD, yet refined expression"
"A rich palette of fine woods"

Good god, where is the cesspool they dug this stuff from? Clearly these cameras are "proving [to be] extremely popular", so much so that they had to close their design centre.

Alan G: do you have a URL for that percentage, by any chance?

Skulls: Do you have to buy PC version if you already have the Mac one, or it's like Lightroom?

From https://shop.dxo.com/login_product.php#dop:

"You can activate your DxO OpticsPro software on 2 computers (Mac and/or PC) with the ESSENTIAL edition, and on 3 computers with the ELITE edition."

Sounds like you should be fine with any platform combination.

I have no need of a desktop system, but the iMac Retina manages to pique my interest. That's a beautiful piece of design and engineering.

I'll likely wind up with an iPad Air 2 at some point - my current iPad Air remains a system I use routinely, and the surprise demo of Pixelmator suggests it might be a viable device for D7100 RAW editing. It'll be most interesting to see if that hope is born out.

nerd2: 1080p200f looks very interesting (AND changeable lens too!) but price is bit too high.... Now we have 480p 240f (iPhone, and other android phones will soon support this ) and 720p120f (most android phones) on smartphones already.

http://vimeo.com/106557317 says otherwise.

On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1659 comments in total)
In reply to:

topstuff: This is what happens when they let western marketing people take over. I bet this was conceived and created in California.

It is something Ehrlich Bachmann would have said.

All we need now is for Canon to say that they "can make the world a better place".

Peiasdf: Wow, this is the longest DSLR superzoom ever made. Sigma and Tamron only made up to 270mm.

Nikon is a late comer to the superzoom scene (compares to Sigma and Tamron) but I guess with the price Nikon can charge they can afford better design and parts.

Not strictly - there was also Tamron's 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3. But, having used mine a fair bit (until the AF *and* VR died, a whole 18 months after purchase, and outside warranty), I wouldn't recommend seeking one out - quite soft at the long end, and prone to noticeable CA.

With three ED elements, I'd hope this is a superior performer.. !
