Michael Ma: I hate the fact that you can get 1TB on the Surface Pro 4, but only 512GB on the Surface Book which is arguably more Pro that would require more storage space. C'mon Microsoft, always giving me a reason to hold off on my purchase. I waited a year to get 16GB RAM on it. Now another reason to wait. See you next year...maybe.
You know it's funny but I have yet to see a comment from a so called Apple "fanboy". I do however see several posts trashing Apple on this, a Microsoft news item. Strange, isn't it?
I notice lightroom CC has this in addition to a Clarity and Saturation slider.
Also sharpness, noise, moire´and defringe.
Smeggypants: " NASA funding issues may prevent the space agency from providing additional moon mission scans in the foreseeable future."
Oh please!!! The single most important historical event in history and "funding issues" *may* prevent release of most images. What a load of boll-ocks!!!

When we start the move of humanity into space, this will have huge historical significance.
steve_hoge: Hmm, no IBIS, stabilized lenses or slo-mo - they're relying solely on the servo mount for stabilization? I guess if you're shooting 4K you've got a lot of frame real estate to work with if you want to stabilize in post.
Sometimes combining lens or camera stabilization with another form of stabilization like a brushless gimbal mount can be counterproductive.
Francis Carver: "New Apple Pencil?" Please, this is gross. Oh, and BTW -- Wacom has been making stuff like this for a dozen years or so now. Apple is always the last to the table with everything -- yet they claim to be innovators, instead of knock-off artists.
So Samsung made the GridPad, did they? Well I guess in one way they did but they certainly didn't create it.
nerd2, Samsung copied the iPad look and feel up to and including the power adapter and packaging. There's copying and then there is copying. Samsung went way too far.
Mister Roboto: Much better than a pile of overpriced, overhyped GoGo cameras.
Mister Roboto, I'm guessing that is sarcasm? This company just licensed the Kodak name, did they not? And if Kodak has any control over the quality of the licensee's product, I hope they do a better job than Polaroid.
I would rather see a small lightweight setup for use with brushless gimbals.
Randy Veeman: Nice, but I see nothing worth $3300.I am sure others will find features making it worth the price. For the other 98% of ILC buyers there are better performance/price options.
I'm loving the photos I'm getting from my iPhone 4s so if this is better, I'm sold!
NeilJones: As a "drone" flyer. I have waited along time for this to come out. The 4k video i currently shoot is great from a small camera on my birds but stills have always been a let down. Once I can get this on a decent gimble and flying, i can't wait to see the still image results.
As a drone photographer, do you think controlling the shutter via smartphone app will be adequate for any distance? Personally I would be more interested if they put in a simple remote port that I could control via radio.
Michael Houghton: I've followed this through the beta process.
I'm no photoshop god but I think this package has more than enough for a *huge* number of photographers. Not being a Lightroom user (and doing my raw development in OpticsPro), I cancelled my Creative Cloud subscription as soon as I was clear the betas were stable enough to use.
There will now be a litany of comments saying that if Serif were "serious", they'd have launched on Windows first.
All I can say is: they are going to make a lot of money. It's an excellent product which pairs well with Affinity Designer, and they've demonstrated a remarkable level of commitment to quality.
Actually the comments here have been impressively non-partisan.
whyamihere: I find the level of cynicism of most of the comments to be simultaneously unsurprising and utterly infuriating.
Nowhere else can you find a group of people who are completely defeatist about a production team taking a photography and film tool that the majority of people have on their person at any given time and making a full-length feature.
I'll gladly argue against the use of a 'real camera'. I'm fed up with footage from 'real cameras' being post-processed into appearing as amateur handheld video. This is the real deal, which lends to the character and authenticity of the movie.
For all the concerns about the footage quality, I can't say that I've read a single review of the film thus far complaining of how the film looks. Your average audience member doesn't care about IQ unless it adds or completely distracts from the story being told. It looks like an interesting movie, which means I'll probably take it over the countless beautifully-shot yet otherwise-garbage films out there.
whyamihere, what a great point about a full-length film made with a product most people carry, and not primarily as a camera.
Joel Benford: Whilst it is impressive that a dog can play piano, it does not play the piano very well.
I'll even bet that a human playing a piano keyboard on his iPhone 5 will probably play better than that dog on a Steinway.
I love this for its uniqueness and that is probably why they did it. I'm sure using a slightly more versatile camera like a Canon 5D or Panasonic GH series would not have added much to the budget though.
photo_rb: It kills me that companies bring out small light camera bodies that would be ideal for UAV (drone) or any remote use if only they could add a couple small features such as AV output and remote triggering.I know this can be done with WiFi but probably distance limited.
canonpro, yes I was looking at that Black Magic. They are the only camera makers that actually get it. It would be nice to see more of them. I would want stills and video.

Nice images. I don't mind the "land" shots as they show the photographer's range although maybe they should have been at the end.
I remember another military aviation photographer who used to post on DPReview...maybe he is still here. Jeremy, Jason...? I loved seeing his work too.
photo_rb: I take a bit of issue with the comment that this was caused by man-made construction. Perhaps, but it is easy and popular to automatically blame any tragedy like this on man. A few sites I visited did not come to that conclusion. From what I read, there were a combination of factors, primarily calm weather being responsible for low oxygen levels.
Erez, my apologies. You are right it is not the point of the article at all. But the way you presented this information it will come out as fact to anyone reading it and that can be damaging too.
And "oselimg", the posts above yours are not saying construction wasn't the culprit. No one knows what is at this point.

Marcin 3M: For about 170 years photography was proud to reflect reality. Not any more.
Sorry, I disagree. It is like saying that painting should only attempt to convey realism and that was actually a serious argument when the "Old Masters" were in their heyday and the Impressionist were trying to take a foothold, some like van Gogh failing miserably in their lifetime.
