Time and time again studies have shown that "talent" and "ability" do not stand on their own. Opportunity needs to be a part of the mix. In America and other places race has historically been a strong factor in success and visibility in almost every single field of endeavor. Colorism can be studied formally or researched casually using a browser and some free time; it exists and denying it exists doesn't make it disappear.

Every single human being has biases, conscious and unconscious, that dictate their preferences. Two weeks ago an article came out proving how a simple photograph can change someones viewpoint on a topic. Few individuals these days are interested in discover and/or taking ownership of their own prejudices, whatever they may be.

The objectives stated in the article can only mean good things - taking nothing away from anyone else and, hopefully, getting more unknown, but quality, photographers discovered. Again, this should be a good thing.

Thoughts: I would like a portable hard drive can copy photos from memory cards without the PC as I dislike carrying laptops. I can dream... :)

@Niala2 The Colorspace UDMA3 series has been around for years, maybe even a decade. I always buy the empty ones (case only) and put in a seperate drive. The latest version allows *most* SSD's to work.

It does have an incremental copy feature and it also allows you to attach a secondary external drive, if you like, to copy images to. Perhaps the WD in this article would be a good target for that.

Been using the Sanho Colorspace line since it came out. Just got the UDMA3 that supports SSD's. Put a fast, inexpensive 1tb drive in it and in less than a minute it was up and going. Copy's are quick and verified at the end. I like the ruggedness (thanks to the SSD) and the new ability to import from multiple cards (haven't tested yet) at once. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1191264-REG/sanho_shdcsudma3000_casing_only_for_udma.html

otto k: If they do, I just hope they open it up and allow full access to data as there are many more interesting uses (for me) than auth or 3D selfies.

What could possibly be interesting than 3D selfies? :-)

Sorry to hear this. They were pretty responsive group when it came to support and feedback.

On article CES 2017: Hands-on with the Kodak Super 8 (426 comments in total)

<sigh> Thought the headline meant Kodak was releasing an 8k video cam. That would've truly been a Super-8.

joel avery: Timed exposures up to 30 minutes - that's excellent.

I know there were decent reasons for the limitation in the mechanical days but have been longing for the builtin feature for the modern devices. I was disappointed that Sony didn't add it, not even when going to their mirrorless marvels that are more digital than ever.

Has camera shutter speed improved via firmware before or is this a first?

joel avery: Vindicated. Firmware fix is indeed possible.
Good job Sony.

When DPreview posted the original article I posted a comment asking if it was just a matter of a firmware fix and some said there were larger issues - beyond an update.
I'm glad they were wrong. :-)

p.s. I like everything I post - I'm a genius! ;-)

I do like it....but I didn't like it. I just tested by "clicking" and it will let me.
Do you like yours? :-)

Simultaneously intriguing and repulsive.

What are the technical limitations - buffer filling too quickly?
Why wouldn't Sony go ahead and put an uncompressed RAW option in the camera even with a firmware update?
