Suckers! Their motive is money of course. Each curved sensor will only work with a lens designed for it. So it is the same move as changing the lens mount design-redundancy of past designs force YOU to lose $$$$$$. As did mirrorless, remember???

Yep, and you cannot see the difference AND your photos wont be any better as a result, and of course each lens will only work optimally with its OWN curved sensor, so one camera per lens makes for HEAVY load.

PETA cannot sue on behalf of an unidentified entity,1. Wikimedia cannot refuse to follow photographer's edicts 2, because 3: the creative act was the photographers..

Without him there the photograph would not and could not have been taken, and the macaque had no idea of the results of its actions. The US rulings are all just plain stupid as obviously lawyers and judges were corruptly conniving to create an entirely fresh legal pasture to graze in and fatten themselves up on.

All camera makers can equally argue that their machines are what is taking the pictures, all paint and brush manufacturers that their goods paint the paintings, and trainer manufacturers that their footwear have just won titles at Wimbledon and the Olympics!!
This is why Trump's America is an international laughing-stock, .....the sanity of the electorate is to be questioned, and their judiciary!

Download and read a pdf of Susan Sontag's On Photography, rightly credited with giving me my first and very necessary photographer's block!!

You might ask yourself.... and you might ask yourself....and you might ask yourself

as you might after and during the experience it gives you, and I DO recommend it, as fair comment on the medium

On article Leica M10 1.9.4.0 firmware arrives with major bug fix (59 comments in total)

I have never seen a digital M in use, ever. I read this and find it is troubled because its UHS II is a no go whereas all recent machines use UHSII with total impunity and the old ones I have from 2004-5 work with but no faster than UHSI. Which means one thing only: Leitz are incompetent digicam designers.

What is the least you can pay for this thing with a lens to entitle you to these problems??!! Answers on a postcard please to......

Only photograph when an event is on: this does things to human behaviour in such a way that you can simply blend in and contribute at the same time. Use a standard zoom in close quarters, and you'll experience and see "life through a lens" far better than you can with a fixed prime.

2. Check out what your dwellings light is like and your garden. You are there a lot. Use a mobile whose huge depth of field sees it all pretty much the way you do.

3. NEVER EVER LOOK AT OTHER PEOPLES WORK.
unless I'm checking the optical qualities of a lens online, the work of other photographers is not exactly inspirational and you risk copy cat crime visual syndrome that can last for years, buying the same gear, going to the same places, sad!!

4 Do not eat drink or smoke ,make eye contact or engage with your subjects, or if you do- to get portrait permissions etc, remember to avoid distortions and amputation of limbs!

5. Give up on film!!

munro harrap: Those who complain are online waiting for Adobe's server, built-into their PCs, to steal compressed versions of their images for free. GO OFFLINE, delete your connecting software -easy to do(its in the Adobe folders in Apps), and carry on.

WHY are you online working for Adobe for nothing?

As to a fix, it'll not happen, and IF it does will take as long as it has to admit the problem.

Me personally I am still on 4.4 and its a lot faster than Optics Pro 11!

Well Optics Pro 11 and 9 are good meds. One free running on Mavericks and Windows 7 and the latest flavour on Windows 10 and El Cap. I keep LR 4.4 because there are profiles missing from Optics Pro, the Sony R1 raws and 1Ds MkI Canon some lenses, but otherwise I, without meds am on a different planet in terms of my work looking like what I see, the colours especially are far more accurate, and the resolution perceptively double what you get out of Photoshop, and all for a few dollars more than LR6 on disc.

As A D800 user I can only hope that my reading between the lines is correct, and that Nikon will keep the same body design : in other words simply remove the mirror from a DSLR . And carry on without one.

Sony made a decorative yet tragic choice when they went mirrorless because the too small bodies have too useless batteries and lack weatherproofing and durability, and I take the view that this path is being rightly rejected by Nikon.

The second reason , apart from a D bodies much better ergonomics is that the size/weight advantage is lost as soon as you put a decent lens on an e mount Sony.

Even on APS-C the 16-70mm and 24mm f1.8 are enormous because they have to include the extra barrel length anyway, so the small body is a con trick in fact!! Add a 70-400mm and it is bigger than its "A" mount equivalent for the same reason.

And all the adaptors and the fiddling, and the exhorbitant cost of switching, bah, fiddlesticks, not me!!

This is why waterproofing etc is SO necessary. Then all you need is a hose or a watering can

Error 20 says do something to correct it, but he doesn't. He just assumes thats it!

No proof it no longer works at all is given, so why show us this at all?

I want an updated large sensor machine with good touchscreen and macro. The 1020 has that already with IS. The lens has good detail, the sensor is 41MP. It has CD quality RDS FM radio,

WHY would I Buy a 13MP small sensor modern camera? Even my Nokia N8 is 12MP but with a bigger sensor than all current machines have at the same resolution- from 2010 Zeiss f2.8 Tessar lens.

The advantage of the old Nokias is good quality widescreen images that taken in good light are as detailed as a DSLR and fits in your pocket.

To up the ante Nokia and Zeiss have to outclass that 41MP larger sensor, or you may as well buy any 13MP phone.

munro harrap: Please everyone listen up at last and STOP using the web to display your photographs.

You are GIVING THEM AWAY. Is this what you want, and to the host who reckons you so stupid you should have to pay for the privilege.

Dont imagine relevant people see your work. They dont, among the billions of images online everything excellent is swamped by the mass of mediocrity, like too many channels and too much rubbish 24/7 TV.

Your work has value, but a website has ABSOLUTELY NO ACTUAL VALUE. It is something businessmen use to steal work of value.

Look at the Magnum site, check it out> that is a commercial online photography site that has you pay upfront for images it only shows small and "watermarked" visually bigtime. Its a reliable professional source of good pictures.

If you make a list of a dozen or so such sites for different kinds of work, they are where picture editors go first. They are much more easily searchable. I am not saying they are better, but if its your job can you spend hours and hours searchiong through Flickr or Instagram? Can you phone them and chat about how you want it printed, how and where and when you want it sent? NO!!
