groucher: Regarding the comment about Nikon's optional compression curve, there's nothing optional about it nor Nikon's CA processing; Sony are not the only company to do this. NEF's are processed in Capture NX2 to remove CA, to improve noise, DR and to correct exposure BEFORE the user has his input. All of this processing is lossy.
This is easily seen by viewing a NEF in Corel Photopaint which displays the NEF in all its original unprocessed glory. It's evident that the amount of automatic CA removal applied in NX2 for modern electronic lenses is startling. Even pro lenses such as the 17-35mm f2.8 don't fare well. Old metal lenses, which the camera cannot recognise due to the lack of electronic connections, usually show little CA in Photopaint.
Nonsense. Even the use of NX2 itself is completely optional.
Stunningly beautiful and poignant.
samfan: Geez, what's your problem guys, so they asked a fashion designer to make a bag and put a white camera inside it. Big deal. It's just a white camera in a white bag. Something you can buy for your wife as a gift if you you know she doesn't appreciate the standard big black cameras. (And while I don't know SmC's work she's probably known enough that the bag itself would cost as much when bought separately.)
It's not like they had to pull firmware programmers or lens designers from their work on your dreamed out Canon MILC to make this.
She may appreciate it. Or she may smash it over your head. Mine would do the latter.
Great images. They really tell a story. But lets not judge as circumstances conspire and fortunes wane. If we look hard then the story is not so different from Detroit, the rust belt, North East of England and any number of places that are going through a change of fortunes.
Such a thing is simply done in LR a number of ways and of course, unlike doing it in-camera, it can be done to a raw file. Why one would want to a more difficult question to answer.
Looks like the dashboard of a 1978 Austin Allegro Princess Vanden Plas by British Leyland. What happened to BL? Wait a minute, didn't they........
Someone in Sigma Germany marketing dept has just got their pension plan statement and thinks the parent company is Greek.
