Ron Poelman: If that doesn't get him turfed from the R.P.S.,
then it's true, Photography IS dead.
At least we were spared the DIY Adult Graphic Novel version,
complete with the same 24 crayons the "author" used.

@ survived :)
Glad to hear it.
Still clicking apparently; http://www.rps.org/

Ron Poelman: Life is movement.
Another bright shiny thing from a company that just don't listen.

Easier for you to name one Sony owner who asked for pixel-shift.
Most of us have long wish lists, this geegaw ain't on mine,
or on a lot of others', I'm tipping.
"Stand really still, I want to take your picture", progress, really ?

Strong he is in the ways of the Amazon, this Young Barnwalker.
Many clicks will follow his path.

Ron Poelman: That can't be good.

@freediverx
Because it IS free and it works;
probably to a depth that many here will never utilise.
We've already had the gigantic subscription debates here Re: Adobe
and yet plenty here seem to be happy about another good thing
about to be absorbed.
Why they think DXO is even capable of "improving" NIK,
leave alone extending it, is pure Pollyanna,
the real world just isn't working like that anymore.
It'll sell more DXO for sure, but I'm happy to drive mine out of FastStone, that works very nicely, thanks all the same.

ProfHankD: No PlayMemories apps? What the heck is Sony thinking? This was their opportunity to get ahead of everybody by allowing 3rd-party camera apps using their well-developed interface... and instead they're disabling the feature. I wonder if this is Sony's reaction to the interface having been hacked so that 3rd-party apps are now possible... if so, this might be the single dumbest move Sony has made since entering the camera business.

@Prof.
Perhaps, just perhaps,
Sony is ready to ditch the Playmemories debacle
and is about to release a smooth, user friendly replacement;
fully backward compatible for all Alphas, of course.

Total capitulation.
How many unsold $5000 lenses are floating about, ya reckon ?

A 50 OR a 300 ? Hmmn.
5 will get you 10, this SURVEY ends up
baked into some "photo grading" chip.

Meh,
one wheel short of a decent Etch-a-Sketch.
As for implementation, even my $30 Gigabyte gaming mouse
has a nice big wheel, it's profiled AND it's rubberised.

Cheapest Customer Database rebuild ever.
We can't advertise any new, exciting products,
but golly-gee, we're nice guys.
Better stick a new SPAM filter in, American Canon shooters.

Ron Poelman: Pity R&D has already been "semi-automated" for a decade;
navel gazing seems to be in a feed-back loop.

Well, fair's fair,
Nikon are out strutting their stuff with Sony sensors.
Canon are still in the kitchen,
incoherent and blocking access to the fridge.

Ron Poelman: About as sharp as a pound of wet leather,
to quote the Leghorn.
What did they use, a pinhole ?

Uh-huh,
Blurry is the New Black
and everything B&W is Art.
Oh please.
If you're pushing a new product,
surely you show what it's capable of ?
Anyone can produce blancmange,
not all of us want to start using chemicals again.

They really are turning into quite the Media Whores aren't they ?
Guess that quiet understatement thing has run it's race.
A guest spot on AbFab next ?

Just because we can, should we ?
This is a perfect example of pointless shadow retrieval.
What was gained ? Only a distraction to the main subject.
Way overdone. Perhaps a little restraint ?

and yet,
you can only hold one camera, with one lens and one view-finder,
which, with any luck, will show and tell exactly what you're going to get;
whether you compare it to a Raven or a Writing Desk.
