Ian: One thing it can't do - ward off negative comments ;)

@GonOS, that's pretty funny! I'm a Canon shooter, but can admire/respect other brands. Like most, I'm heavily invested in lenses, but even if I wasn't, I'd be happy with any modern DSLR. They are all capable of taking amazing photos and the results have far more to do with the photographer than the camera. It's not like you can flip through a magazine and tell which camera shot which photo.

Still waiting on the "reality" filter that gets rid of the flowers, dumb faces, and screechy voices.

I'd have thought that LowePro was worth more than that.

Ian: Shouldn't this guy be winning a photo contest?

It's 'creative' and about as good as many of the winners shared here of late.

Yeah...but some of the people around here have acted like the photo contest winners were just horrible, so I thought it'd make a good joke...

There is actually a third camp - those of us who think this is some amazing piloting, but know that reckless crap like this will ruin drones for the rest of us.

You get what you pay for...and Instagram costs how much?

Ian: What's with the Dr. No suits on the roller coaster in the 'page 3' photo for the The Street Photographer Category Winner?

That's certainly one way to do it...always interesting to see other cultures.

I like these photos as much as anyone and don't care if people get hurt doing it as it's their risk...but these people could kill someone below if they drop something or fall on them It's only a matter of time until it happens and it's why these places are off-limits without a permit or permission to ensure you minimize the risks.

thx1138: All microSD cards are the same size, this is not the largest ;o)

"SanDisk unveils microSDXC card with world's largest capacity of 400GB"

I hadn't caught that - but you're so right! That card must be huge LOL

Suave: Does iPhone support it?

Just like drilling for the hidden headphone jack, you'll need to cut a gap in the side to access the hidden MicroSD card slot ;)

For those with DxO Optics Pro, their Filmpack plug-in allows you to do the same thing for the cameras they support, i.e. Fuji and other film profiles in Raw. I'd be curious to see how they compare.

Some of those sample images are beautiful and others hurting my eyes. It looks like a nice piece of software, though.

Ian: "That said, we're aware that a great many people primarily shoot JPEG. " Is that really true? I'm not saying it isn't, but in 2017, it seems surprising.

@MrBrightSide, that's good to hear, and I have had the luxury to shoot and spend the time to process RAW, but it's been a while since I've shot JPEGs.

@Kona Mike, I think you need to get a grip. I wasn't ripping people who shoot JPEGs, just surprised that most people do now that RAW processing has gotten so much easier. I agree that some people take the technical side way too seriously, though.

Ian: How is this version of Camera different than the app for the Nexus phones? I had HDR+ on my Nexus 5 and now my 6P as well (v.4.3.016.14754696).

@Impulses - I smashed my Nexus 5 just a few weeks before the Pixel was released so I went with the 6P, but I was pretty bummed about the timing. I don't take a ton of photos with my phone but I didn't realize the Pixel was that much faster.

Okay, that's what I was thinking. The article acts like the Pixel is the only phone that has it.
