ZeroOne01: Holdup? Man, it’s been only 7-8 months since they released the first product.

Hey Androole, you're right I made a mistake. I put 15-inches instead of 14-inches, but I was indeed testing the G14. The latest G14, if you go with the 32GB of RAM variant with the QHD screen, is $2,000. This is the variant we're currently testing: https://store.asus.com/us/item/202103AM300000011

The $1,500 model you're referring to has only 16GB of RAM and a 144Hz FullHD screen with only 100% sRGB coverage (instead of 100% DCI-P3), so not nearly as viable for creative work.

Gesture: 40K or 60K. Which is it?

The company spent 60K total to settle the claim, but they won 40K.

FLruckas: "stills meets" should be still meets.

Good catch. We don't always spot the typos in the press releases. Those are mostly copy and paste. Fixed!

Michelob: Flickr announced that they're merging with shutterbug. Maybe the subscription will go towards a Flickr Pro account?

Flickr was acquired by SmugMug, not Shutterbug : )

(unknown member): "Already doing quite a good of grabbing market share" ??

Come on chaps, this is sloppy! How about a bit of proofreading?

Fixed. Sorry about that!

In reply to:

(unknown member): What I've heard is that the journalists weren't even allowed to *look at* the screen, which is rather different from just not being able to take video of it in action. It suggests that perhaps it's not actually all that Red has made it out to be. Time will tell, but for now this "announcement" just seems like a bid to get a little hype bump and keep this phone in people's minds. They haven't actually told us anything new.

Check out the video above. I've not seen any YouTuber or other Journalist say they weren't allowed to look at the screen. In fact, every hands-on I've seen spoke at length about what it was like to use, specifically because they weren't allowed to show it on camera.

That said, I think we're all a bit skeptical ... a holographic display, even from a brand as respected as RED, is a gimmick until proven otherwise.

Ergo607: [quote]Put another way, the 12K by 8K footage above is 48.5 times the resolution of 1080p.[/quote]

Hmm, wouldn't that be 8 times...?

As @whumber points out, we're referring to total pixel count.

12000 x 8000 = ~96MP | 1920 x 1080 = ~2MP | 96/2 = 48

rontz: As you seem to like Dustin Dolby that much, you might think about having a look at Alex Koloskov and his product-photography school Photigy as well, as my impression is, that's where Dustin gets his inspiration from.

Hey @rontz, I personally love Alex' work. He's on a totally different level though, teaching high-end product photography using (often) complex lighting setups, etc. Definitely worth featuring all the same, but the reason Dustin's audience is growing so quickly is precisely because he uses so little gear to create near-professional (depending on who you ask, of course) results.

Pritzl: Not sure how embarrassing it is. Bugs happen. If anything, Fuji deserves kudos for how quickly and openly they responded to the issue. I sense a bit of kaizen-envy-schadenfreude going on here.

@EskeRahn Ah, that makes more sense, my apologies for misreading that : )

@EskeRahn we praised Fuji for releasing such a great update (and are still impressed by them for it), but I fundamentally disagree that they should be praised for doing the *only* appropriate thing and rolling back a flawed update that caused problems : )

Still, I've removed the word "embarrassing" since that's clearly being read as a value judgement, which it wasn't meant to be. Just reporting on the news.

It wasn't meant to be a value judgement (also... how can a camera site that tests all cameras have brand envy?), just a statement that any time a company releases a flawed product/update it's embarrassing ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

On article Venus Optics Laowa 9mm F2.8 Zero-D sample gallery (89 comments in total)
In reply to:

dgpfotografia: You meant ~14mm equivalent focal lenght, right?

You're right. Venus Optics advertises the equivalent focal length as "about 13mm", although the exact number is 13.5mm. Typo fixed.

panther fan: Did I miss it or how much is 4k+, like in pixel?

Also now that we have a 50.5inch 3:2 panel can somebody make a digital picture frame out of this, please?

"the exact resolution hasn't been stated" <- from the article. They're just guaranteeing that it'll be over 4K, hence 4K+ : )

Lol fair point. But amazing technical achievements are often boring at first : )

In reply to:

panther fan: Why this headline? The image divison had just an 76.2% increase in profit, so all that was driven by other parts of the business.
I mean that is great news for Nikon, but how many on this site are interested in the printer division of Canon or the gaming consol business of Sony? I think I am correct by assuming that most of us only care about the image division of the camera companies

Operating profit for the imaging business this last year was 30 billion yen, that's over half of the entire company's operating profit of 56 billion yen. Sure, the 76% number doesn't look as substantial, but I think it's safe to say that this jump for imaging had a significant impact on overall profit for the company, and that 776% number.

Plus, I see it as a "rising tide raises all boats" scenario. Personally, I'm interested in the other devisions because, the better they do, the more leeway Nikon has to take risks in imaging.

On article Use photography to create a meaningful gift for Mom (40 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jonathan Brady: Soooo... What's the source for the new images? Unsplash, less the credit so we don't know any better?

@Jonathan they were licensed (and paid for) through stock photography collective Stocksy, which was chosen because they respect and properly pay their photographers.

@lightandprayer Photo credit isn't usually given when you pay to license stock images (except with some editorial images, which these are not).
