  • Based on a Google blog post (which I think is the most comprehensive public source for how it actually works), it does seem to build quite a bit on top of HDR+: https://ai.googleblog.com/2018/11/ni ...
  • From my own personal perspective (hobbyist, very little interest of selling my photos) I don't really have any particular feelings about connection between photography and advertising. I don't ...
  • Hobby. I don't think I'd enjoy it nearly as much if I'd try do it for a living, as now I'm free to photograph what I want, whenever I want (obviously within limits set by other aspects of my life). ...
  • I don't have an actual Pixel device, but there are modified versions of the Google Camera application that run on other phones (not all versions work well on all phones). I tried one on my Nokia 8 ...
  • Sure, giving the benefit of the doubt is such a nasty trait.
  • I was very surprised and awed when I found out that my otherwise fairly average photo of the Andromeda galaxy actually also showed several globular clusters orbiting it. I've also spent time in the ...
  • "Rinse and repeat" describes the quality of trolling very well here. Then again, I suppose this fairly new poster is actually not new at all, besides having a new user ID (which actually is quite ...
  • I haven't even upgraded my camera body in six years, so I have even less interest in purchasing multiple additional camera bodies. The way I see it, most of the time I'm the weakest link, not the ...
  • From my personal point of view, it's fun. I think there are worse reasons to photograph something than that. :) As for unattractiveness and "you've seen one, you've seen them all" angle, I think ...
  • Replied in Orion
    The photo does show a decent amount of deep-sky targets; M42 and M43, Horsehead Nebula, the Flame Nebula, Barnard's Loop, M78, open star cluster NGC 2112, hints of the Witch Head Nebula near Rigel ...
  • I haven't seen one live myself so far and unfortunately the product photo on the same local (Finnish) online store I originally checked the price seems to be taken at an angle where no "made ...
  • Well, that's true. Every cloud has a silver lining. :)
  • I have no informed opinion about the topic of colour science itself, but I'm really starting to hate the term itself. It seems to have become the latest over-used buzzword.
  • While I don't know your long-term shooting habits and the shutter life spec for your camera, unless you fire consistently tens of thousands shots per month, I wouldn't be too concerned about the ...
  • While I don't disagree with some of your points on the other post, I have an Instagram account with a few hundred photos, I'm in my 40's but I just don't think my selfies or food photos are ...
  • The latest incarnation of BigStick et cetera, I suppose?
  • You really are constantly hung on the age thingy. Can you elaborate your reasoning, or are you just trolling? (greetings from someone who's in his 40's and disagrees with OP. How old are you ...
  • Yup. The same pattern seen already earlier with computers, digital cameras and so on. A couple of decades ago replacing a computer with a new one every couple of years brought concrete benefits, ...
  • Now I get why Flickr decided to go from their "1 TB for free" plan to "1000 photos for free" plan. They just prepared for this :)
  • In general, I think quite bit more information about them as persons besides their names, age, career choices and travel habits (including taking silly risks) would be needed to make an informed ...
