A risky solution with little or no hope of recovery from a bad crash. Really slow , especially when more than half full. Bought one and will never buy another or use another - even if it was given to me for free.

If this succeeds , and I think it will for cheap catalogue work . It just shows.....how much "fashion photography" is stereotyped dreck supplied by uncreative lowball shooters. Gotta up the game because a robot is going to steal all the mcjobs whih is not necessarily a bad thing.

justinwonnacott: As much as I dislike pie in the sky crowdfunding vapour ware this one does not look too scammy. The same company announced on petapixel that everyone who has paid in advance will get all their money back. There are a fair number of drone manufacturers chasing customers, surely the drone market is only a tiny fraction of the photography retail landscape, i am not surprised investors were hard to find for the niche lilly was trying to compete in. Too late to the party and not a lot of people at the party either.

Whoa.... New reports do suggest really dishonest practices....

Boss of Sony: Will you be comparing the IQ of the graphite version to the black body? How about a whole new review?

I heard the black one overheats and raises the noise level at long exposures......ya think?

justinwonnacott: am I missing something here? This hands on is well.... hands on because the cameras are a different colour!? Is that it? Doh . . .

There is a nick or dent in the first camera on the mirror/hump/box/whatever.

Dpreview needs a photo editor to exercise some qualty standards and to vet the integrity of the work they publish.

justinwonnacott: The woman with the snake has to be on of the sleaziest, cheesiest promo pix for a major brand I have seen in a long time. Takes me back to the pages of Modern Photography in the 1970's or worse.

It really seems to be a lowest common denominator assumption on the advertiser's part that presumes that sony customers are rather stupid , mostly men and can be easily coaxed into clicking on the fleshy "bait" (woman mostly naked cuddling a great big snake/anaconda.)
This customer is a little old for that junk and deserves more respect for keeping my brains in my head instead of my pants. Grrr..... Grumble....

Professionals choose the system that supports the camera, lens selection is half the game.

You would find nearly any pro shooter who uses canon with a 5d in the bag, semi pro my foot.

Hugo808: Here's my gripe: The new anti-haze tool is only available if you pay the CC subscription of Lightroom and doesn't appear on the desktop version. Grrr.

PDI stated.....And what is the purpose of Lightroom without the Development Module? From a real photographers point of view - nothing. ....
I beg to differ .... even without the development tools this software is EVERYTHING to what I do. My Lightroom catalogue may be the single most important piece of "equipment" I own. THE digital asset management tools and my catalogue are central to my entire photography practice. I actually find the development tools part of the interface rather clunky to use because of its vertical stacking and the inability to tear off modules and place them on another monitor. Batch operations are great though.

kewlguy: I was tricked by adobe, I guess. I purchased the stand alone LR6, installed it on 2 computers, then my son needs a LR so I thought why not subscribe the CC? After I subscribed the CC, adobe blends both LR6 and CC into one. So I ended up paying twice and still have only two computers with LR...

yes

On article Retro through-and-through: Fujifilm X-Pro2 Review (2485 comments in total)

The higher ISO samples do not look good 1600 is soft and heavily noise reduced and it gets worse after that. If you are shooting on the street shutter speed is everything and for that you need clean files at 1600 or more. I am not very impressed by the image quality, actually.
