To be first who mentions this: exhaustion gas catalyzer should be fine as a straw camera "lens".

vscd: It's not about exchange rate... it's the normal business to increase the fee if all dogs are on the dog leash. ;(

Stu5, they can't do it easily if Seriff is private company.

What makes me wonder when I'm comparing PS to competition is the "paylist". Can You count all these people? Are there a hundred of them? Two hundreds? And then look at photoline (program that offers combination of bitmap and vector editor, very capable) - two developers. Krita - also two people. Affinity? Hard to say, I bet about 5 to 10 persons. All these programs costs a fraction of PS (krita is free). Guess why?

In reply to:

Bilgy_no1: I own the 950XL and I wholeheartedly agree with the comments about the missing Panorama feature.

I find it amazing that a company who developed and owns Photosynth, leaves a simple panorama mode out of their €699 Flagship phone. Especially since they offered that feature in previous phones (Nokia phones).

There are more unitelligible choices like that. E.g. Nokia was the first to popularize the 'double-tap-to-wake' feature, and used it on most of their phones in the past years. Now that almost every Android OEM has copied this feature, Microsoft decides to leave it out of their Flagship phones.

The 950 XL has become a decent phone, having received half a dozen updates since its launch. No more hot flushes, and spontaneous reboots like in the first days. The swipe keyboard now also works in the browser (although not flawless yet). Even the creaky back cover has somehow stopped creaking. Now they need to focus on fixing the final bugs and give us the Panorama mode...

In my L950 I have panorama mode. In camera mode I can switch between normal shots, camera and panorama.

I wonder what "gem" will Phaseone add to C1P this spring. Last time it was a new curves (afair), earlier it were color grading "circles". I hope it will be something very fancy too.

Paul Auclair: I recently installed the 10 Express for Sony.
Is there any way to efficiently and accurately incorporate X-Rite's ColorChecker Passport with C1?
I emailed the same Q to Phaze One a week ago or more and have heard nothing back.

C1 is icc-based software, while CCP software (and Adobe profile maker) produces dcp profiles in LR-specific format (I don't remember its name). There is a free software to convert Adobe dcp to C1P ICC, but I'm not sure how it worked. Search sourceforge for dcp2icc.

HowaboutRAW: For higher ISO performance I'd pick the A7SII, Df and 1DXII over the D500.

That APSC sensor is the Sony one used so well in the Fuji XPro2 and XT2, also used well by Pentax in the K70. Not used so well by Sony in the A6500.

If you have "fast" lens, you don't need ff camera, at least in theory. E.g. DX camera with 18-50/1.8 lens is about equal to ff camera with 24-70/2.8 lens, of course if doth sensors are best in their classes.

World rather need responsible politicians, that can solve problems rather than create them. Photography, like other media, are turning into medium of propaganda rather than source of information. Taken out-of-context (or even staged) images and video sequences are being used by almost each publisher/broadcaster without any hesitation. Fortunately, we have also no-pro whitnesses with their cell-phones and cameras.

newe: Anybody compare this to Photoline yet? It is another nice package that is unlike Adobe.

Razadaz, Photoline IS "all-in-one" set of programs.

saiko: Great app! Have been testing the Windows Beta - and just bought it today.

Does anyone know if Google Nik Collection plugins can be used with with Affinity Photo on Windows 10 like Gimp?

Can be used, but some of them with limitations (e.g. problems with colors).

In reply to:

Skyscape: Gimp is still free and likely better.

No, it is not. Affinity if fully color-managed, with CMYK capability. Affinity works in LAB colorspace. Affinity has ICC-capable printing module. Affinity Photo is supported by affinity Draw with common file format. Gimp is going to be fine program some day, when gegl will be fully implemented, but with lack of various colorspace options.

I'm not fan of apple, but I have to confess, that I hardly ever used card readers built in my win laptops. I still use cf cards, and even for sd cards I prefer usb3 external card reader.

They did not failed, they simply put this lens on the shelf with luxury goods, where 101-economy rules does not work.

Zoom/focus swap... Do they think about using this new zoom with a light mirrorless camera?
