On article Some versions of Capture One are now more expensive (200 comments in total)

Funny once I saw the lack of support for stitching images in the update I moved over to On1 and am actually liking it. Sure maybe not as great of a raw converter but it streamlines my workflow, I love using my own folder structure to hold my files and I’ve hardly ever not needed to bring a selected image into a pixel editor such as affinity. So making additional color tweaks in affinity ehh, it wasn’t too long ago we were editing 8bit files for clients.
What I really think this proves is how important we do not depend on any software for our Long term archive. If I needed to grab a file from years ago I would almost certainly need to reprocess it from scratch.

Another example of the camera manufacture’s native app lacking common sense features

Not sure the usefulness, until third party software such as Capture One or Lightroom support pixel shift

On article Sony announces tiny FE 28-60mm F4-5.6 full-frame zoom (209 comments in total)

I hope this is the first in a long list of lenses Sony will bring out with the emphasis being on compact size

I'd like to see a set of lens hoods that have a rotating ring around the end allowing a French flag(not a large one) be mounted and adjusted for those times when I'm truly trying to reduce a light source glare

I'd really like to see architectural assignment(s) that would justify these costs. While I can understand where I am in the food chain, are there really architectural assignments, plural, that support these costs?

Johans81: Last nail in the Coffin for Canon.

Last nail for canon??? No last nail for thinking we can store important data in the cloud, last nail for thinking important workstations can touch the internet. This needs to be a wake up call to both apple and windows QUIT making OS that need to be in constant communication with the “mothership”

Twenty years ago I knew businesses that wouldn’t allow computers to touch the internet we need to go back to that paranoia

j3ffw: For me the real question is, can it rename a file?
What purpose is a dam system that won’t allow you to rename a file to your own logical system? I don’t need hard drives full of files with some generic camera naming

It changes the file name at the root level? That would be great, I will have to reinvestigate as that's why I stopped using it

I agree not a fan when companies try and force feed us a tech that isn't mainstream. Seems like they are the inconsiderate cars passing by in the right turn lane only to want to cut back at the last minute inconveniencing the rest of us. Couldn't wait one more model update cycle!?!

my good headphones are 3.5mm, adding dongles invites connection problems, on long days I do use the USB port with a power brick. The move is not helping bring us faster into standardizing cords its just adding trash to the land fills forcing its users to buy one if not multiple dongles

Nice but for a travel tripod I would really like to easily dissemble the legs for times I am very restricted with luggage space. Along those same lines why can’t a travel tripod easily be converted in two walking poles. These manufacturers should fire their designers as it’s just another same old slightly smaller version of the last model

ecka84: Still no optional EVF support? That's so lame :).
Otherwise, it's a great real professional camera.

No it’s a sports professional camera. I believe the distinction should be made as canon would rather support .00005 of the working photographers with a specific camera while ignoring so many other long time customers who have been asking for a proper combo mirrorless that can support today’s requests.

On article Have your say: Most important cameras of the 2010s (417 comments in total)

Without a doubt the iPhone/smartphone was the most influential. I am surprised that neither a Sony nex model or drone is listed. The list seems a bit skewed the a7 and a7r were two different cameras and don’t see the a7 as influential at all if anything it should be a7r2 then a7s. I literally don’t understand most of the others on the list unless it’s just pandering for votes. Seriously how can this list be relevant without a drone or nex?

cdembrey: "California is a garden of Eden, a paradise to live in or see;
But believe it or not, you won't find it so hot
If you ain't got the do re mi." So sang Woody Guthrie during the 1930's.

BTW how much is a copyright worth today? Most breaking news is covered by citizens with Quad HD 4K cell-phones, not PJs or News Cameramen from the O & Os. The Orange County Register isn't a broadsheet any more, it's a website. And the muckraking, OC Weekly tabloid, is now gone forever. Not many places left that buy copyrighted news photos in Orange County.

Copyright is still extremely important especially when you factor in time limits, multiple parties, different usages, etc..

As someone in dc I can assure you I constantly see editorial images being repurposed for large .orgs, lobbying groups, and or companies used in marketing materials as well as fairly high dollar ad campaigns - maybe not the ad campaigns that make it into vogue but would be lucrative if the pjs had the business sense to hold on the copyright and negotiate licensing fees

I think and could be wrong the problem that’s going to be caused is that companies are going to site this law as a way to get freelancers (creatives) to sign work for hire agreements where the company claims the individual as a contract employee not a freelancer obtaining copyright while still not paying the higher licensing rate.

While I applaud nppa and know they use to have an open CODB calculator anyone could access if they were really for their members they would of promoted greater education on licensing and encouraging higher freelance rates years ago. Employee or not when the pjs are billing $500 for a corporate gig it’s no wonder our entire business sector dropped through the floor.

Freelancers need to charge a significant higher rate than what a full time employee makes hourly. Companies need to accept this and org like Nppa and asmp should of been promoting this for the past twenty years as a former member of both imho they were not now they are in a loosing law suit

Not a Nikon shooter, but this is great to see someone pushing the capabilities of these smaller cameras. Will definitely like to see the day when this can all be recorded in camera.

Enjoyed the humor, thanks.

Seeing that the topic is beginners or casual hobbies I think the article could of asked why Sony didn’t add heif images as an output option. Also I didn’t believe the 6000 could be charged via a usb power bank?

Rob890: for what you're getting base wise that seems a bit expensive especially if they're touting it as some sort of module thingamajig.

The camera is going to be the buyer’s second if not third body and a whole new lens system. Asking a premium price for a system that’s not already in the camera bag - yeah that’s a bit much especially when you factor buying into another limited lens system.

On article Sony E 16-55mm F2.8 G sample gallery (85 comments in total)

None of these examples needed the speed of 2.8 however from years of experience wide angle lenses such as this do at times Need a polarizer and the examples avoided showing interiors or city scenes that would of greatly been improved (saved) by the ability to place a polarizer on the lens.

Point is, the examples kind of show some general safe scenes but don’t push the lens to see where it’s going to fail for the buyer/user. I think it’s a disservice not to show a product’s shortcomings when promoting it in a form of review.
