Jim in AZ: "Highsmith, a distinguished and richly-published American photographer, has donated her work to the Library of Congress since 1992. Starting in 2002, Highsmith provided scans or photographs she shot digitally with new donations to allow rapid online access throughout the world. Her generosity in dedicating the rights to the American people for copyright free access also makes this Archive a very special visual resource. "

Her intent is clearly to make the photos publicly available without copyright restriction. Me thinks Getty will prevail here.

ji they cant claim anything of the kind without the photographers permission. i have no idea what you are talking about

Jim Evidon: What a great feature. I have been resorting to duplicate layers and moving the areas adjacent to the edge of the photo out to cover the white areas for some time now. The results were not always perfect and took further fiddling to make the move look right and the overlap blended. This is a welcome change by Adobe, for a change. Some of their 'improvements' have been rather silly in the past. This one is really useful and I look forward to its incorporation.

Fill generally only works well when. Surrounded by content

darngooddesign: Always entertaining to read comments from Leica-haters.

To be fair. canons dont cost 3x-5x what the market would bear for a camera of its features

I have an idea, lets launch a camera that lacks a basic feature that all other cameras offer that is massively useful, and then charge more for it than basically any one else charges for a camera

Great idea!

Ok i will keep my GR because a there is no need to change B. these xtrans cameras always seem to look like crap once you process the image in lightroom. like the camera can make jpegs but they just dont seem to come through well once you run them through a raw development tool

this camera is painfully pretty though

the nikon 85mm f1.8g is not just a good lens. it is a superlative lens. i struggle to imagine people will pay this much more for the tamron

luben solev: When will we get someone like Yongnou produce an equivalent to the Pixelstick (http://www.thepixelstick.com/)?

I would expect that has a patent. it certainly looks patentable. so 18 years

evogt500: I have seen police use something similar to direct traffic.

The strip light is the most compact design that can produce soft lighting

I love the look. I had a ricoh GR that I used constantly. loved that camera id still have it if it wasnt stolen. I like the look here better and the physical controls. But i must say I bought a LX100 to replace the GR and between the zoom lens the evf the ability to get to a portrait focal length lens (i mean 70mm is little short but it works) it probably gets shallower dof too. I mean its a downgrade in lowlight, but not by much. its a downgrade from how far i can stretch the images in processing. and the aps c 16 mp sensor and cracking sharp prime lens probably would make better enlargements. but i guess my point is that newer cameras like the lx just make more sense. they are more versatile. they dont cost anymore.

also it seems to me something like this is all about size. Ricoh got a camera that was truly pocketable to have the same specs. not sure this is going to match that. love to see one in person

love the retro style though

DesmondD: People taking photos for a living should be able to get their settings close enough for decent jpegs anyway. Too many people [not all who shoot RAW but still many] use RAW as a crutch for bad technique.
It has its benefits but if your settings are so bad you can't salvage a jpeg for a newspaper then you're in the wrong job.

also cameras see with massively more contrast than the human eye does. a lot of the raw adjustment people are doing is making the image appear less contrasty in mixed lighting situations to greater reflect they way that the eye sees

the reason this annoys people who take photos for a living is not because they can't his the exposure but because now they have to have a separate workflow just to take care of these guys now

Link | Posted on Nov 22, 2015 at 09:48 UTC

kind of annoying because now you have to shoot raw + jpeg if you have any thought that you may want to submit an image reuters. you will also have to establish a different work flow for the images submitted to them.

fatdeeman: Hmm I bought something very similar to this on ebay for about £10 a few years back it used halogen GU10 spotlights. I just swapped the bulbs for LED equivalents that cost about £3 each. It hasn't let me down once. The halogens can be put back in at any point for better quality of light. The LED's allow for unlimited operation without heat problems.

This would have to be pretty special to justify the expense!

no he implied it h separate spotlights

Link | Posted on Jul 22, 2015 at 09:07 UTC

you guys its for shooting table top work. and the reason it is uniques is the lighting is built in

what makes this uniques that it is portable and has the light integrated
