DutchMM: Yes, Roger, I knew about the trumpet valves, and admired the verbal link with photography through the instrument's newfound chromatic range, and I've driven through Chalon-sur-Saone, where they are quite boastful about his invention. Fox Talbot, who he?

I remembered about the Haydn too, although I don't know enough about the Weidinger to know whether it was fully chromatic.

Am I the only person who chose a K&F because they made one with an extension to nearly 6 feet? I get enough of a stiff neck sleeping in a draught without wanting to have to bend down and twist my head to look through a viewfinder at vest pocket level!

On article Sony announces SLT-A58 20MP mid-level DSLR-style camera (127 comments in total)
In reply to:

Benarm: The most interesting thing about A58 is the supposedly improved sensor with 1-stop better noise performance over its predecessor. Can't wait to see DXOMark results.

quote from SAR:
" keep getting short updates about the next Sony A58. Not only will it be the first camera using the new generation Sony sensor (with 1 stop improvement) and a new autofocus system. "

end of quote

On article Bibble Labs purchased by Corel (50 comments in total)

I hope I am wrong, but this story reminds me of Midland Bank in the UK before it was taken over by HSBC. The first candidate overtaker was Lloyds Bank, but the spin to make it seem like a merger was that the new entity would have one word each from the predecessors' names: Lloyds from Lloyds, and Bank from Midland.

I liked Bibble 5 enough to buy a copy. I wish Corel every success with the new product, on all operating systems. If I don't like it, they can whistle for my money.
