On article Then and now: Photographing the Bay Bridge (29 comments in total)

Stackpole's photographs are relaxed assured and magical.

Looks like another box-checker. Will it also perform and inspire?

Only one of these photographs is actually by a photographer – and that one is pure historical artefact. It says a lot about photography.

Zvonimir Tosic: When I read most of the comments below, it's like going back to Antiquity and Dark-ages — invaluable and hilarious! It's something like reading commentaries on philosophy and humanities by Genserics and Odoacers.

I think the idea that the Vandals and Barbarians were a bunch of uncultured louts and hooligans is beginning to be turned on it's head today. (If that aspect was your intended implication here ;) )

Another great tool that could prove useful in the war against street photography.

On article Behind the Shot: Dark Matter (51 comments in total)

Agree with previous comment. The final image feels overcooked. The element bottom left looks like it's stuck on to the surface of the picture. I think it's a good illustration of the need to pull back from the point where artificiality creeps in during post processing. The eye and brain are very adept at sensing when things have gone over the divide between real and non -real.

I'm not clear whether a user has to keep updating* their software.

If you dont want to update what happens to your subscription. Will I end up paying more for the software after X years of use than if I had paid for it outright at the start?

*I generally hate updates as they rarely add anything useful and sometimes make interfaces worse (CS6, adobe!).

I don't give a monkey's about clouds. Take 'em or leave 'em.

On article Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction (1852 comments in total)

The main problem is for users who buy a copy of Photoshop and then use it for 5 or 10 years without upgrading*. They have no need to upgrade. The new charging model costs them more.

*When I can, I still choose to use Photoshop from CS4 at work. There's nothing in CS6 that improves my work and CS4 even has a more legible interface design.

bronxbombers4: Really so they can't maintain CC and perpetual product lines but they can maintain PS CS6 for each new OS release?

Also now that DSLRs all have video it's not just LR/PS but Premiere Pro as well for the regular user....

I think he said that they'd maintain PS for one new OS release.

That kind of designer-art-process really turns me off. Glib.

Slightly more interesting is Janek Schaefer's audio piece of the same process. Made in 1995 and also a student project, I think.

There's going to be confusion with the name. Already I can see five entries from 'Buy the Ricoh GR Amazon' and not one of them is the new camera.

At first I was horrified but at least he's being brutally blatant about the street photography problem. Unlike Philip-Lorca diCorcia who an Orthodox Jew tried to sue for the same kind of street portrait approach in Times Square a few years back. But that guy didn't know it had been done until he saw it in an exhibition catalogue afterwards.

iaredatsun: Sony have tried, but that list of cons says a lot. An example of a company who have pressed all the right (consumer-led) designer-engineer buttons but haven't got their priorities quite right.

Aside from that, I've used it's smaller sister camera and Sony never feel like they quite understand how to make a camera that is good to use. I can only hope this one does better in that sense.

I'm waiting for that company who know how to make great cameras to step up before I buy an interchangeable compact.

@JustinL01, ergonomic design and its evaluation is not a science, you can disagree or choose to ignore an opinion on this aspect of a camera, but you cannot say it is 'incorrect', totally or otherwise. ;)

If, as you seem to be saying, Sony have rethought their approach to designing compacts since the RX100, then I look forward to trying one!

The articulated(?) LCD seems to make it unnecessarily thick as a brick.
