In reply to:

jacek2008: While reading the article and seeing all that mess in the pictures I was wondering, why the hell are they using flawed Adobe Camera Raw instead of bundled software?

because the bundled software sucks in any other way.

In reply to:

22codfish: And in the meantime, Pentax probably suffered severe marketing damage.

so they sold 2 cameras less...
be realistic... pentax cameras sell like 1 week old bread.

In reply to:

mosc: Not good enough to make 1D owners change their entire lens collections, that's all it comes down to. I guess good enough to hold onto their own market share and make it that much harder for Sony to eat into this segment with some hypothetical release in the future. I neglect to mention newer professionals, mostly because I don't think they exist with significant numbers where a market for their content is rapidly contracting.

the way nikon calculates AF points is just for the feature list.

ChrisH37: That last photo on the last page is superb and highlights exactly what the D5 is capable of, love it.

what a nonsens comment... a mirrorless for 400 euro could produce the same image.
just get the timing right and learn to prefocus....

Sean65: Nice. They're certainly passing on the costs to their customers though. I'm pretty sure their flagship press cameras were about half this price 6 years ago.

there will be no nikon in 6 years if the trend continues.... ask thom hogan.

In reply to:

steelski: Please oh please try the files in the Pentax software, Update it first to the latest version.
As others have said, The Camera Store tested it and it coped better.

i doubt it will be any better for this kind of motive.
it´s just not made for it.

studio stilllife.. yeah ok.

Jim Evidon: What a great feature. I have been resorting to duplicate layers and moving the areas adjacent to the edge of the photo out to cover the white areas for some time now. The results were not always perfect and took further fiddling to make the move look right and the overlap blended. This is a welcome change by Adobe, for a change. Some of their 'improvements' have been rather silly in the past. This one is really useful and I look forward to its incorporation.

first... it´s not a new tool.

and content aware works fine for some easy stuff yes... but as you can see in the example video it sucks quiet often.

On article Looking Sharp: A focus stacking tutorial (223 comments in total)
In reply to:

daddyo: Or...I can simply select 'Focus Stacking' in my Oly E-M1 menu and press the shutter button -- the result is an 8 exposure, razor sharp stacked image OOC. Yes, it's a Jpeg but I have no problem printing 30X40.

Or, as the poster below pointed out, 'Focus Bracketing' is also an option for dedicated Raw shooters.

Then again, I appreciated that some get great enjoyment from 'cooking from scratch' and this tutorial is very helpful information.

actually i wait for the big two to implement that into dslrs.
technically it should be no problem.

also the dslrs have way enough computing power to calculate the hyperfocal distance for me. why i have to do that with my cellphone is beyond me.

i am an engineer myself and i don´t understand why camera engineers are so conservative.

if i would build a camera it would have a function to focus to HFD with the click of a button.

AshMills: So this "uses the cloud for its more intensive tasks" - anyone else think there are data protection issues (at least) with this?

do you think people who most likely use this (the social media clowns) care about that? :-)

Mrrowe8: WTMF? How lazy can someone be ? Only useful if you are on a news dead line , however if you got a gig like that your editing skills should be solid , maybe if you are in a battlefield and need it but beyond that ? , this isn't needed at all and truthfully is the type of unnecessary addition to the art of photography that should never be used , it is a vehicle to promoting creative laziness

hobby? you might want to check your claims....

Michael Ma: All ~20 Sandisk microSD and CF cards have always performed to perfection and still work today. All ~8 western digital harddisks I've ever purchased, all have failed within a year of purchase or just out of warranty. Am I the luckiest and the unluckiest guy in the universe?

WD is crap.. correct.
unfortunately seagate or hitachi (hgst) are not much better.

they all have drive models that have huge RMA rates.

In reply to:

PhalaNik: Never had a WD drive or a Sandisk CF or SD card fail on me. Used both exclusively for the last 10 years plus.

wd black caviar has 8-10% RMA rate according to a big french retailer.

statistically your comment is absolutely irrelevant.

great.. now we will have flash cards that only last two years.. thanks to WD quality control.

it´s really not new.
most people do this since adobe introduced content aware fill.
it just needs a few more manual steps to do it now.

and as you see in the example video it works EXACTLY as bad as the content aware fill we already have.

for me this is far from being an exciting new feature....
