On article Google Panoramio to shut down on November 4 (60 comments in total)

Google sucks. They're too big with too much money and too little vision. I love how they bought Nik Effex software package and there hasn't been an update to the suite since. Just a matter of time before it's no longer compatible with LR.

Clint Dunn: What a great camera with such a small sensor. Unfortunately Olympus will never be more then a niche market. Imagine the volume they would sell if this camera had all the same features and a FF sensor?!
Queue the defensive comments from Olympus owners...

You've all missed the point. The Olympus is a great little camera but at $2000 it's WAY overpriced. Of course FF is not the be all and end all of photography but if you care about pure image quality I would choose an A7ii, D750 or even the smaller sensored D500 over this Olympus.

@dharmagreg - your point is invalid because you can't buy a medium format camera for the price of this Olympus...but you CAN buy an APS-C (D500) or a FF camera like a D750, or a Sony A7ii. The point being...the Olympus is a great camera but overpriced for the tiny sensor.

Autriche78: So why do I as an X-series shooter since the X-E1 suddenly feel like I've been royally screwed?

Am I the only one?

What are you talking about??? How are you 'screwed' with Fuji announcing a MF camera? It's a completely different product aimed at a completely different target audience then some $500 xe1

In reply to:

Mariano Pacifico: The design is re-incarnation of lamentable G5X but bigger and goofier.

@justmeMN - The 'retro design fad' has nothing to do with 'lame hipsters' as you call them. For starters nobody even calls people hipsters anymore unless you are old and irrelevant. Second of all, the 'retro' designs are popular because companies like Fuji are giving us what we want...easy to use controls on top of a camera instead of buried in menus.

In reply to:

bobfonte: I regret that DP has censored my message and I am again posting:

This review is ridiculous. It assigns only 87% for MKIV after having previously given 90% for D750, when this gear, as is well known, has presented many issues and weakness. While MKIV will sell tens of thousands, D750 is moldering on store shelves.

@bobfonte - It's a subjective rating for a camera...an inanimate object...not your wife. Who cares.

Looks like Canon finally made a digital version of my old EOS3.

In reply to:

zero sector: there is something wrong. sample's are soft at pixel level. maybe it due to converter.

...or maybe it's a heavy handed AA filter.

In reply to:

mosc: I feel like 20 is too wide and 24 is not quite wide enough. I find myself wishing there was a true 90 degree (22mm) out there to get as wide as possible while still projecting down 2D cleanly. I suppose 20mm plus a small crop is there but it kind of surprises me nobody shoots directly at it with a prime. Or do you all think 20mm is close enough and perhaps I want to cut off the absolute corners anyway?

Zeiss sells the excellent 21mm 2.8 Biogon but it is in M mount...and probably doesn't play well with a Sony sensor....but you could always switch to Leica:)

On article Throwback Thursday: the Samsung NV10 (75 comments in total)

I used to own the NV10....I got it for free when I bought a 46" Samsung LCD. I got hammered in Vegas and me and my girlfriend forgot it in the back of a taxi. I didn't care about losing the camera but bummed that we lost almost all of our photos from the trip.

HeyItsJoel: A degree in Photography is like a degree in French Literature. Both useless.

Mike you can't compare a degree in photography 40 yrs ago. Back then being a photographer was a big deal. Nowadays anybody with a $700 DSLR is calling themselves a photographer...thank digital for that.

D200_4me: I guess there are too many 'workshops' being offered today to turn everyone into a Nat Geo photog and they couldn't compete with that. If I see one more Iceland workshop...

You know it's funny....I always wanted to go to Iceland but in the last 7 years or so it has become some sort of hotbed for photogs and the internet is flooded with millions of photos from the same dozen or so popular locations. It's gotten to the point I've seen so much of Iceland 'virtually' that I would rather spend my money to travel somewhere else.

$80k for a 3 year degree in photography...no wonder they went out of business. I wonder how many people spent the $80k to become proficient technically but discovered that all the money in the world cannot buy you an artistic 'eye'.
Besides...I think most people (like myself) are self taught photographers. That is one of the biggest benefits of shooting digital...instant feedback, don't like the results change settings and try again.

If you really want to become a professional photographer teach yourself to shoot and then spend the $80k on a business degree.

On article Still solid: Fujifilm X-E2S Review (238 comments in total)
In reply to:

oscarvdvelde: I don't know why DPR keeps ascribing an obvious Adobe development issue to the 16 MP Fuji X-Trans sensor. It's been long known that processors like Iridient (on Apple) and RawTherapee (free!) do not have any problems with the detail in greens.
Then there are some who complain about "wormy artifacts", but those are enlarging beyond 100% pixels.

The first thing I did to inform myself whether the detail was up to snuff using a Fuji for landscapes is opening a publicly available RAF file (XF 27mm) in RawTherapee, and I was blown away. It looked better than my old EOS 5D output!

It matters that Fuji files don't do their best with Adobe because most people use Adobe. I'm not going to change my workflow to use a horrible program like Iridient just to get the most out of a RAW Fuji file.

That said, I personally found that Lightroom did an ok job with most of my X-Pro1 files. I think the problem was exaggerated.

Getty Images...what a greedy, terrible company. It's flooded with so much content that there is no point in even attempting to sell your content on the site....and when you do you get pennies on the dollar.

On article A photographer's intro to the world of video (98 comments in total)
In reply to:

Clint Dunn: I don't know what it is about video...I have so little interest in it. I consider myself a good photographer and I'm completely self-taught, yet I have zero desire/will to learn about video. I wish I did have an interest....I have young kids and taking decent video of them would be amazing but I just don't care to learn. I fumble about with an RX100iii that I bought to shoot video of the kids but still...I rarely use it. When I owned my 5D2 I took a grand total of 2 mins of video the whole time I owned the camera. I've taken maybe 45 secs of video in the last 1 1/2 yrs with my Leica M240.

Anyway, a great article, but I wonder how many like me are to lazy to learn!

Yes I totally agree with you Greynerd...I need to stop being so lazy and just shoot some video already! That said, the thought of processing the footage makes me want to put my head in the oven.

Clint Dunn: Oh look...another camera that needs Sillypix to get the most out of the files. Seriously, Sillypix is the worst UI EVER. Come on Adobe get it together.

Did you look at the samples in the article? The Adobe files are soft and the Sillypix files are sharp...it's a night and day difference.
