raevyn: ELLO let’s you post full sized photos and is actually for artists, Twitter is for politicians 🤣 IG has the audience and a lot of amazing photographers if you know how to search

ELLO is really nice, with quality content and no BS distracting idiocratic content. i am really surprised how few photographers know about this platform.
Thanks to remind me of this and go upload there.

S Yu: What a waste, the M1 is far more suitable for running PS.
And I mean that they should flesh out all the features of iOS PS first.

what a waste is no MacOS for iPad.

In reply to:

PAntunes: There are options on my cameras that I don't use. But there are others I use all the time. And there are some I only use sometimes, but when I do need them, they have to be easy to access.

Having a lot of buttons and dials on a camera doesn't force you to use them. Even without them, the functions they provide a quick access to will still be in the menus, and if you need them, you still have to change them.

Removing buttons doesn't make a camera easier to use. Usually makes it harder...

if you use an iPhone for photography. a couple more buttons would be an advantage.

jaiyenyen: I don’t care what Apple haters think. I have mac, MBP, ipad, iPod, iPhone, Apple Watch. They all work just fine and dandy. My last MBP lasted me 9 years, and my daughter now has it. My Mac is still going strong after 12 years. On top of that they all look as new as when I bought them. Apple produces great products.

When I used the likes of Dell, Sony etc for laptops after 2 years they were useless.

To top it off, I’m Happy paying my Adobe subscription to use great software that runs fast and smooth on my Apple devices.

And I don't think I’m alone !!!!

I am no Apple hater, been using their products in 22 years. But Apple Watch is total crap. I broke the glass on two of them after 3 month with little contact to a door knob. Otherwise I never broke the glass on a watch in 40 years of use of others brands, even dirt cheap ones. And Apple warranty didn’t work. Apple care is a must today.

$700 extra for a 5600M instead of a 5500M on the new MBP16 is rip-off. They should just replace the 5500 with the 5600 as a new upgrade at the same price. Apple is getting more and more ridiculous in their pricing. I have no choice other than going Hackintosh to replace my Mac mini 2012. I need a machine supporting multiple monitors and the new mini won’t do it well with no discrete GPU.

MikeRan: So many patent lawyers here.
DJI must not violate ANY of the 13 claims listed in the patent. If they copy ANY of those elements then they are in violation unless they can show those claims never should have been granted in the first place.

Read the patent. Read the claims. Then read the claims again. The claims are all that matter.

I was referring to the infringement claim “1. Nobody is allowed to make a drone with sensors and CPUs that uses these sensors to control the flight and make necessary corrections.” Stated in a previous post. As I know the cited example manufactures do make military drones that infringe that patent. i was wondering if everything military Is exempt of patent laws.
PS I tried to delete the reply, but could not, too late.

it's going to be the next Fashion accessory, next Guchi, Prada, Louis Vuitton ...
I am a bit surprised it is so difficult to build a factory making these masks. it is not rocket science stuff. Ask Elon Musk how to build a Factory in a tent.

M Lammerse: In about 9 months of time we will see what this boredom will bring us....an enormous amount of 'newly born' images, and it ain't cats.

Yes, Lot of new creativity in post processed photos, Lot of Bug fixes in software and I hope some guy use the time to Create a top notch DAM application, I have been waiting for that in years. Nothing is stelar in that field ATM.

Michael - Visual Pursuit: They lost me when I was out in the woods and the app suddenly asked me to create an account and sign in or else I couldn't use the app to control my camera.

Even worse, they tried to grab the right to access and analyze all photos and videos I shot. What the duck do they smoke?

The Software is a disaster. I can't believe it can be worse. it is so un-intuitive to just download just a file to your iPad, that you have to make research on it.
It tries to force you to use some silly social media stuff.

Sine_Nomine: If this is the best out of thousands of images, I don’t know what to think.

i believe many night city scenes didn’t pass the political correctness test, which i imagine is very harsh when it has apples logo on it. I got a bit dispointed of the selection here. it’s to few images and only one with people in a city night scene.

I have seen many photography related movies with photographers having a camera with the brand made invisible with tape.
is this because the camera company didn’t want to pay for product placement? or is it to avoid some juridical problems.
it often look silly. Even laptops they work on use dummy operating systems.
what about cars in movies. Most older villains seem to drive a black mercedes and the younger ones Ferrari’s.
Can Boeing and Airbus make objection on using visually one of their planes in a plane crash movie?

pkcpga: I think the FAA needs to have drones registered and the ability to track them real time if there’s an issue. I’ve personally had one crash through my den window, I live water front and strong breezes can occur, I had no recourse in finding who was using the drone and was stuck replacing the window out of pocket. As a photographer I strongly agree drones need much more regulation including being registered and trackable. Please pass stronger laws for drone use, I’d even be ok with buyers needing a license to buy and use a drone, make user learn the laws and pass a test on how to use them before they can even buy one.

maybe the FAA and such organisations should start with ability to track a big Airplane full of passengers in real time.

Jack Jian: Damn, the ergonomics and the groove on that body is just too juicy and yummy! Sony should learn something.

i agree, the ergonomics looks perfect. as-for a 5d shooter since the 1st one. and having a flip screen now on the 5D series is something remarkable IMO.

Nukunukoo: On my 2018 iPad Pro the selection even on my biggest and complex files were almost instantaneous. Compared to my Macbook Pro, the same file took almost three seconds. Did Adobe use the ML engine on the A12X?

iOS 13.3 maybe it is storage related. I have 24GB left out of 256

On my iPad Pro 9.7’’ it crashes on any of my files.

For me the new select object crashes the app on any of my photos, unless I use it on some low res internet photo with a very simple nearly monochrome background.
Sometimes it even crashes the whole OS and I have to restart.
Previously I had no crashes on my 30Mpix res images in 16bit on multiple layers.
I am on iPad pro 9.7’’ 256GB and latest iOS 13.3

Why this tool and not curves in this update. I find the priority a bit strange. And am I the only one with these problems?
