rochester21: Nikon is the largest seller of photographic equipment in the world period. Even Sean Spicer agrees.

The only reason Nikon will stop selling cameras in Brazil and close its factory in China is because they don`t like brazilians and chinese, it`s a race thing.

upvote for funny.

eengelmann: Italian parasites are the best in the world!
This is sure!
(Foreigners can maybe belive what the major says that's it's not for money, but I can guarantee that it is bull**it in Italian style! They are interested only in money!)

@derfotograf Jeder der auch nur ein Mal in seinem Leben in Italien war, weiß das ;)

this comment section deeply saddens me. for some years now i wonder if we'd be better off without comment sections and social media. i miss those days when i had no knowledge of all your opinions.

On article Hello Lightroom CC: Embracing the future (510 comments in total)

"hopefully increased internet service provider (ISP) bandwidths" that right there is the main weak spot in all cloud based solutions for media. no further discussion necessary. i will most certainly not upload my RAW files into a cloud with the 125 kb/s.

M Chambers: It's really a shame the went to being totally web based.

They're making money simply be people getting a free starter month with their new device and then forgetting to unsubscribe.

Adobe used to be great when you could bootleg their stuff but now there's no point in even trying to work with them.

bullcrap. they were already fine without the subscription model, so bootlegging can't be the reason.

dash2k8: I actually think for my personal needs the lowest-end model will be much more than enough. It will be amazing for my Lightroom workflow. I have to say this article was a tad misleading with that image of a curved monitor. I thought that was part of the package.

@dash2k8 sadly, nothing but a total code rework will make Lightroom fly

Superka: Everything worked fine in Windows XP 64 times.
Now you need these beasts for your browser not to lag.

yeah, i remember those days, it was like 480x640px content and html websites. even the cpu in your washing machine can do better now.

James Pilcher: It seems DPReview has become a "all D850 all the time" web site. A solid iteration of an already solid camera does not deserve such fawning attention.

@scoobysnapstories roflmao!!

pfzt: man, the amount of bitter HDR-dog-in-park-flower-macro photographers in this comment section is much too high ;)

Where are your portraits, so that we can see if you can do better?

Roland Karlsson That is not nonsense, because if you lash out at people calling them "a bunch of talentless hipsters" like many in this comment section did, then you better have something to back that up or gtfo

(unknown member): Well, let’s see a show of hands – how many of the commenters here have read a book about composition? A book about photography? A book about Henri Cartier-Bresson? Anything about the history of photography? Any theory of art?

We are seemingly in the age of the conspiracy theory. “BS” “Voodoo” “gimmick” “mumbo jumbo” “over analysed academic guff!” Well done us!! No need to learn, it’s all b*llocks anyway.

Sorry, the world isn’t flat; the latest tech won’t make you an artist, and there is a whole world of art out there – just enjoy it.

My old dad had a wonderfully evocative description of the fools he worked with: “Thick as two short planks”.

well, the crowd here on DPR can be very special ;)

LEGACYMOMENTSPHOTOGRAPHY: Its funny there are people obsessed with megapixels and DR and all that and its funny how good some old film cameras can do i know this photo has seen better days but in its prime would have looked great. The last few years i have relised that old cameras and film can do so much more than i though. and the equipment is cheap mostly.

large format cameras always had (and still have) outstanding picture quality. however your everyday camera from the 80s may not look as superior to recent digital cameras, but they have a very distinctive look which is appealing to many people (including me).

PhotoUniverse: I thought photography HDR is a 2010 thing and nobody cares about it anymore?

more like 2003. hideous.

Link | Posted on Aug 16, 2017 at 09:10 UTC

amazing, none of the examples looks better after the treatment. everything that makes a picture interesting is gone after the HDR processing. who still likes that look?

In reply to:

jwasturias: Classy looking model. Sadly, I could not find any reference to her. Not sure whether sneezing on the front element of a Nikkor 50 f1.4 yields similar results.

i agree. very interesting model.

dennis tennis: entitled workers, spoiled, selfish... should be ashamed of themselves. Ask not what your company can do for you, ask what you can do for your company. When will these socialist, fascists, communists free loading union workers start to pull their weight and help make companies more profitable and their executive management teams richer? All these greedy communists can think of is themselves.

sadly, there are people in this world who will not get the irony of your post.

What about the software and the interaction with the hardware? many people seem to be very happy about Final Cut and Photos on their Macs. It's the classic strength of Apple to run things smooth on their devices.

Vanitas Photo: I got tired of waiting and switched to Capture 1, the lack of optimization has been LR problem since day one.

Is LR a good idea? Sure it is a GREAT idea but poorly executed, call me dumb but when it has performance issues on an I7 with 16gb ram and a great nvidia card then it is a lost cause... And also call me crazy but when someone neglects their costumers as long as Adobe has, then pffffft I dont have any reason to put my money in their products.

They must be seeing subscriptions to LR declining amd now they are worried...

yeah sure, they became a multi billion $ corporation by lack of software engineering talent… rofl!
