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!

naturetech: Others innovate while China copies.

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.

On article 6 tips for shooting fall color (108 comments in total)

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 (46 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.

Google isn't competing with Getty, so there is no problem.

The button is distracting and also a sloppily added addition.

On article Have your say: Best High-end ILC of 2014 (75 comments in total)

No need to vote. From DPR's statistics above, it show that the Fuji X-T1 is going to be the winner. It shows 856 people own it and 669 want it. That tops all the other ones.

Canon couldn't see it?

In other words for something new and innovative, keep looking elsewhere.

Wrong; Proctor and Gamble mostly produces products that end up in the sewer or landfill sites.

What caused the grey streak near the top hairline as well as the right side of the girl's neck in the above sample picture?

Nand.

Happy to see that these are only my problem on one computer. No problem on any of the other ones. And only showing up while using the Chrome browser on that computer. Looked fine in IE.

Thanks Nand.

On article Online images and copyright infringement (255 comments in total)
In reply to:

JohnyP: all of these "theoretical photographers" who sit in front of a monitor defending rights to their non-existent works of art is quite funny.

Abandonment of the copyright for all works posted on internet should be instituted. Patent and copyright trolling is a waste of everyone's time. This is the only way to make all these trolls switch to something else (hopefully more productive than arguing with people on-line over something).

Are you suggesting that thieves should rewrite the laws?
