Mister Joseph: Isn't Wildfire green?

Yes it went over my head and now I am embarrassed.

WilliamJ Kind of like the movie star who rails against the oil companies but travels extensively in private jets, on huge yachts, and "suites" on airliners.

I guess it is still an environmental thing but you are right. Forest fires are a natural phenomenon and most are started by lighting. Many tree species need forest fires to reproduce. There is some thought that man's suppression of forest fires is negatively affecting this procedure.

TwoMetreBill: 400 watts is not a measure of light output, that will be lumens. And don't say compared to an incandescent as their output varies by more than a factor of four for a given amount of consumption. Light output is measured in lumens and efficiency is measured in lumens per watt.

The best available daylight LED I've found so far is by Phillips with a little over 100 lumens per watt though the CRI it's probably not suitable for serious photography. Note that this bulb is not dimmable as dimmable LEDs are still less efficient though they usually have a longer life than non-dimmable bulbs.

Yeah, I have a couple of 500 watt photofloods that I occasionally use for tabletops and they are very bright...and hot. It is time to upgrade, I thinks.

m3: Too little too late. No amount of patchwork by Adobe is going to convince all those ripped off through the years to not seek out perfectly good alternatives to their market bullying.

Don't taste the same but priced similar.

It's amazing to me that people will part with hundreds or thousands of dollars for a camera body that might only last a few years before it is obsolete yet complain about spending money for software they likely use more than the camera.

Hey I thought autofocus was a gimmick. I'm not knocking anything anymore. ...and I imagine this could be an amazing experience!

photo_rb: I love this kind of imagery but it is very conflicting for me. I would like to do this myself but as a commercial aerial photographer, it would be impossible without breaking the rules (big fines) or going through a massive permission procedure.
It is a shame that in this field a professional cannot achieve what an amateur can because of regulations.

I should have also mentioned that even though I would like to do this kind of video, I would never fly over anyone without their permission and definitely not over a crowd because the liability is too great.

Tim McClanahan: How much for just the camera?

Is this just a modified Panasonic GH4?

dlb41: Pretty soon, the photographer will aim the camera in the general direction of the subject, and Adobe programmers will take care of producing a photograph.

And they will own the copyright.

PKDanny: CRAZY PRICE!!!

Anyone thinking large format inkjet printers are expensive would really have had something to complain about back in the day of emulsion based paper processing. I can't really remember the exact pricing but I don't think $20k for a 30 inch processor (Kreonite, Hope, Durst) wouldn't be much out and those are 1980's dollars.

Indulis Bernsteins: These 3rd party flash manufacturers are crazy. They try to compete with Canon and Nikon, and maybe get a very small share of a big market. Why don't they start with Fujifilm and the other camera makers who DON'T already have a good selection of flashes, triggers etc. They would get almost 100% of the market, quickly. Then they could move on to Canon and Nikon.

I'm sure there are a lot of people like me who have invested in non-radio Canon flashes who would jump at the chance to convert to radio control with the addition of a commander and receiver modules if this is what the system offers. Does it?

On article Corbis Images content to be distributed by Getty (29 comments in total)
In reply to:

MyReality: Wow! Look at all the whining and crying happen in these posts. Where are the violins?
Photographers have to be invited to join Getty. Getty does not force anyone to sign a contract. Their contract is available to read online.
They are like any large company that wants to consolidate. They are not breaking any laws.
If you don't like their contract, don't sign. I have heard these kinds of comments before on this forum. Does anyone here believe in free will?
If you don't like the amount of your commission, sell thru a different outlet
Have a nice day?.

Kind of like Walmart telling a supplier "if you don't like our terms go to another store."

photo_rb: Oops somethings not right. Just installed and everything is washed out and super contrasty. Anybody else?

You can use this software for getting detail back in highlights or shadows for a normal look as well as the psychedelic look you like.

Ha Ha, no I have the previous version and this one is not looking right at all. I emailed the developer and waiting for a reply. I take it you are not having this issue.
