I first tried my A6500 and then my A7R2 and the video quality is awful compared to my old Logitech webcam that you see in the middle of this short video. What could be going on?

Carl Crumley: The Sony R1 introduced in 2005 was the first APS-C mirrorless camera I believe, not the Samsung NX10. The R1 had a fixed lens rather than interchangeable lenses. The Zeiss 24-105 lens on it was marvelous though. If Sony hadn't bought Minolta's DSLR line right after that they probably would have introduced interchangeable lens models and perhaps even full frame and been more than a decade ahead of their time. The electronic viewfinder technology would have hindered their success and general acceptance though.

I said that.

Spectro: i learned you have to move the macro subject to unrealistic place and background to get the shot, good to know.

not in this video but... I think some macro photographer kills their subject (insects) pin them down to get some of those great 1x shots.

Not Don. I've heard him talk about cutting a photo session short because he had to release an insect before it died. In fact, he cultivates lady bugs and praying mantis in his garden to both benefit his flowers and to serve as photo subjects. Now, his insect subjects might from time to time succumb to invisible ink or something he uses in one of his "mad scientist" photo experiments, but that's rare.

RUcrAZ: I was looking forward to the video...but about 2.5 minutes into the 5-minute video, you "guys" were still saying "we're gonna..." and hadn't shown anything yet. So I quit. Sorry.

I figured that out pretty soon after it began, so I just jumped ahead 2 minutes and started watching.

I remember some years ago seeing a similarly impressive demonstration of the "Shake Reduction" option under the Filter menu. I had some minor success using it but after a while gave it up since more often than not the results were poor. I hope this new feature doesn't disappoint me down the road too.

I shot video of a green heron (much smaller than a blue heron) swallowing a frog I never would have thought he could get down! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iLN0PLFuTA

sh10453: OK wait ... Where is Jessica's app? I better go read it because I initially skipped it.
Just kidding, Allison!
Great parachute image by the way.

I looked at the "Things" category, and I don't know why it is full of birds and animals images.
As far as my little brain knows, animals and birds are NOT "Things".

Well, birds aren't "people" or "places," so that leaves "things" as the only possible category for them.

On article Adobe Camera Raw 9.5 introduces new color scheme (128 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rockaw: The new interface stinks. It's changed simply for the sake of change. The gray on gray color scheme is difficult to see, there is much less contrast than before, and it's much less obvious where to click for layers, masks, tools, and text fields.

How is this possibly progress?

I notice if I open a raw file by through Photoshop using File > Open it comes up with the old interface. The old interface also comes up if I double click on the thumbnail of the raw file. However, if I browse to a raw file in Bridge and open it by using the little aperture icon, or right click and choose "Open in Camera Raw" I get the new interface.

Until and unless they change this, it appears both the old and new interfaces are available depending on how you open the raw files. The best of both worlds.

It appears he's missing his left arm. I wonder how that could have happened?!?

McCurry used a digital camera BEFORE he clicked the shutter on that last role of Kodachrome: “I wanted that reinforcement, to be able to see it on a two-dimensional screen...” – Steve McCurry, National Geographic photographer, on shooting the last roll of Kodachrome film produced by Kodak, during which time he took each photograph first with a digital camera. From Shutterbug Magazine, October 2011: “McCurry took no chances shooting the last roll of Kodachrome. To make sure he had exactly the right moment for each photo, in focus and at the right exposure, he first used a digital camera.”

I hate companies forcing people to use Facebook to participate in a program.
