ttran88: I use to see people carrying around their pro Dx bodies around on vacation in Hawaii. But nowadays these guys are endangered species.

Honestly, it has always been a rare species.

We made stupid things when we were young too. Lucky social media didn't exist ;-)

ttran88: Olympus joins E mount and releases a full frame Pen F with a set of f2 primes. Whoohoo!!

That would be exciting!

Pixnat2: Shrinking doesn't mean dying.
Just less profits for big companies, that's all.
If one is not a shareholder, why should one care?
We never had so many amazing cameras in history.
Let's just enjoy without worrying.

@ badi
Don't worry.

This market crisis doesn't mean less money for R&D, but less bonus for managers.

In japanese, "crisis" means "danger" and "opportunity".
So the opportunity is here now to really and truely innovate, not just just make minor refinements of existing technology, like they did the past 5-6 year.

The best things usually emerge when times are difficult (the worst too, but it's part of the balance ;-) )

Sure, S Yu
Thing is : I absolutely don't care about "technological progress".
My present cameras are so good that I really don't need more.
Why not trying the "less is more" philosophy, instead of this neverending race forward, which only brings dissatisfaction?

Pixnat2: "Phones vs Cameras" comparaisons would only be valid if cameras could make calls.
Until it happens, phones will always win :-p

Of course mmx.
It was just a "tongue in cheek" post ;-)
I think it's kind of absurd to compare both.
Different tools for different jobs...

Pixnat2: It's urgent to seriously think about social media.
Does it make us better people or complete morons ?
Let's do it before it's too late.

Josh683, Stupidity is a "disease" that have always existed.
But now, social media spread it quickly and globaly.
Would stupidity stay on social media, no problem. But when social media spread moronic behaviors like this in the real world, it becomes a problem.
The only cure is a better education.

Exactly Bob. I used to think social media only makes stupidity more visible. But now it generates moronic behaviors all over the world. It's like a pandemic, and a very contagious one :-(

entoman - excellent proposal, absolutely agree with you.
This would make the web a better place, and I'm sure we will be there sooner or later.
All the best!

You're right about this, of course.
But I think that's an easy problem to solve : just set up a mode "All my personal datas can be collected freely and sold to third parties". So people who don't want the hassle could continue to use it as usual, but at least willingly and consciously.
Nothing hidden like now.

I think you're totally wrong.

I, for example, would have no problem to share some of my personal datas for free service. But I would like to control which personal data are shared.

This is what Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the Web, is trying to do with his https://contractfortheweb.org/

The Web and Social Media are fantastic tools, let's just make them more safe and transparent to use.

The model could be fine as long as you'll have complete control over your personal datas.
Unfortuntely, it's no yet the case now.

Great news.
I like Luminar and its powerful editing options. But those two things are missing : image explorer and ability to keep your edits without saving to .lmnr file.
If it additionally could import LR catalogs, it would be near perfect, and give a viable option for people who prefer to be free rather than captive of a subscription plan :-)

Great article, thanks.

RAW Histogram would be the most valuable tool for our digital cameras.
Many are asking it for years, but it never came...

The Magic Lantern hack provides RAW histogram and RAW blinkies in some Canon cameras, so it shouldn't be difficult to implement.

So hear hear, all camera companies, please put it in your next model!

Pixnat2: Today, "liars" are called "influencers".
"contacts" are called "friends"
"addictive" medias are called "social" medias.
At first, this orwellian newspeak may seem harmless. But this process softly distort reality, and alter your ability to distinguish what's true or not. Dangerous.
Hopefully, there's a very simple solution : quit social medias.

Done a long time ago ;-)
