Nice to see what a $50,000 camera is capable off.

Just wish, I knew what I did with mine. Now I want it back.

Any idea what goes through the train engineer's mind when he sees someone on the tracks? Ask one when you can.

My employer, colleagues, neighbors, mailman, stores a buy from and the taxman all remember more about me than I do myself. It doesn't make me nervous and neither does a simple little app.

@Damon Lynch. Did you just confuse observation with critique?

nekrosoft13: its funny that they go through all this trouble to make a counterfeit lens but they miss a simple detail like putting a space in there.

So now it's just another aftermarket lens.

nand: Amazing, I tried on a picture behind glass using the phone's flash in dimly lit room and it turned out great. No sign of any reflection.

And it works great taking a shot from a laptop screen without showing any reflections or moire. Naturally not using the phone's flash.

MAubrey: It only sticks half way out in the previous models because they made it like that. They never needed to do that.

Exactly, it doesn't halfway stick out of the camera!

If it wasn't for copying everything by everyone throughout the ages, we would still live in the stone age and hunt with clubs.

I bought one of these with the smaller 24 x 32 mm frame size in 1966 for about $75.00. It too was marked "Made in occupied Japan". I'm still looking to find it back.

For years now, I used the fifth one for my computers wallpaper. I just can't get enough of it. Or a very close similar one taken at the same location.

On article Corel PaintShop Pro X9 arrives with improved workflow (48 comments in total)
In reply to:

Prognathous: I'm still (happily) using PSP X7 and will likely skip X9 (just like I did X8), as I don't find features that make much of a difference for me. Here's what I'd like to see:

- Option to automatically tag RAW and JPEG files with location names (based on GPS coordinates embedded in my Sony A77 files)
- 100% Photoshop plugin support
- Tool to create a sheet of passport pictures
- Option to hide all toolbars and palettes with a keyboard shortcut (like Tab in PS)

Ctrl-Shift A will give you full screen without anything else. That is in X8.
As for plugins, Topaz, Google Nik, and Anthropics PortraitPro Studio 15 work for me. But I may be wrong with some that I never fully used.

On article Microsoft Pix aims to capture better people pictures (56 comments in total)
In reply to:

noflashplease: Considering that SSDs have a limited number of write cycles, the Microsoft Pix app could really trash the solid state memory in a lot iPhones by constantly writing and deleting photos. It's should be very obvious that this app is constantly taking photos when it is open, in anticipation of the user hitting the shutter button, with each photo overwriting memory and burning through a write cycle. How exactly is that a good idea for SSD longevity in any device?

Obviously, the frames are kept in the phone's fast dynamic ram that does not suffer the life cycle limitation that flash memory has. Only the final selected image is stored on flash memory as it is with all other (phone) cameras.

Apple may have a patent on this technology, but I don't think they are trying to market iPhoes that can be remotely disabled. I don't think the competition is rushing to get license for this patent.

A bright white screen often triggers a visual migraine for me, where the item on the screen that I focus on is suddenly blurry with a colorful aura moving around it. It lasts for around 10 minutes and sometimes comes with a slight headache.

So yes, I prefer black even though white looks very nice and clean.

The button is distracting and also a sloppily added addition.
