On article DPReview TV: A look back at APS film (363 comments in total)
In reply to:

jpindustrie: As a young person growing up in the 90s in a consumer photography household, my experience was that APS was a huge hit amongst my parental units and most of friends' families (that weren't into any serious photography, of course).

I remember my dad selling it to my mom on precisely because it was 'so easy to load the film' and easier to reorder because of the printed thumbnails lol. What a time to be alive. Of course didn't know much about anything aside from how cool the Panoramic mode was - until I got my first 'real' DSLR - T1i and i learned about the crop sensor...

He is a robot.

dccdp: I thought you were an international site. Mother's day is celebrated on different dates across the world, so talking about a local US custom as if it was something big is really narrow-minded.

You discriminate, it is obvious from your comments. You don't know me, but discrimination is precisely about not knowing the others. I had a different opinion and you jumped. That's all. I don't expect you to understand it, it never happens.

You do not know anything about me either, yet you didn't hesitate to call me names and exercise your hate speech.

Don't worry, I am not going to feed your hate, I am just stating my disappointment, because I really thought this is an open, international forum, built on the principles of tolerance and nondiscrimination. Obviously, I was wrong, the same arrogance specific to the years of colonial terror of the western world lives on. Sad for your environment, though, you have to live in it every day.

And now, after the first wave of hostility towards different opinions and customs has passed, you will probably rejoice in your reconfirmed realization that being a white Western male is indeed such a great virtue.

Wake up. Discrimination and intolerance against everything outside the "established" Western countries are real and important.

@Melchiorum Really. And what do you speak of when you refer to Europe? The couple of countries that lead the EU? You are only confirming the Western self-centered view on the world. It seems the "diversity" argument is only good when it suits political agendas, not when addressing a global community. Westerners still believe their customs are superior.

Strange. My wellbeing improves when I *don't* use social media.

Never heard of them, but I don't have time for youtube in general. Guess it's good for dpr, they will extend their brand to that area, too. Better than doing phone reviews, actually.

Highly processed, unnatural shiny photos, now using fake animals... this is the state of photography today. This shows the futililty of these kinds of competitions, and highlights the madness brought to the modern days by the obsession of winning awards at all cost, to "differentiate" oneself from the "crowd". Sad.

grock: "Feeling bad about your old work is a sign of progress"
If I feel bad about my current work, does that mean I'm making more immediate progress?

No, it just means you are depressed.

Ergo607: Nice review, thanks. Does this mean that there are reviews from other LR alternatives are coming? Are is this a one off?

@Ergo607 He doesn't have the colored dpreview logo near his name.

Kiwisnap: My biggest concern is that the software companies have you by the short and curlys.

The small ones might go bust. The big ones might just get bored and turn off the taps - for example, Apple and Aperture. They might start well and then decide a subscription model makes sense after all.

Once you have 100,000+ images in a library system, you just can't keep hopping from one app to the next on a whim - it's too hard, too risky and takes too much time you should be shooting and earning.

This is why we should support open source.

Seeing these samples, it doesn't "keep a natural and unprocessed look".

Focus Shift Shooting: I'm all for this stuff. I absolutely completely love it when Sony or Samsung rolls out a $14,000 TV and people buy it. Whenever I see those price tags I smile.

The reasoning is simple. I'm letting rich people who aren't all that smart, but just want to brag or whatever, buy equipment that otherwise wouldn't even be on the roadmap yet. Then in a couple/few years, I get the exact same specs for $3,000. WONDERFUL!!

@Clint Dunn If you switched from LCD to OLED, then probably the most important factor in being impressed about the picture quality was the higher contrast/lower black level, rather than HDR.

With this mentality, you wonder why companies engage in petty fights such as refusing to sell each other's services (see google and amazon) on a supposedly free market while pretending they are open and smart?

It's a photo, a nice one, they posted it. And suddenly the world is outraged because they inadvertently exited the feudal close garden mentality?... Nice, and you deserve the consequences.

Micro-SD card storage is good not because of its capacity, but because of its convenience. Easily swapping cards containing different collections of data (music, pictures, videos, etc), without going through the hassle of copying or downloading is a big plus.

Not to mention the fact that if a SD card fails, you just replace it; if internal storage breaks, you change the entire phone.

MrBrightSide: The presence of an observer changes the nature of the phenomenon observed. Maybe Its not Sonys unsophisticated noise algo, perhaps it is the act of shooting the stars that causes them to wink out. Murderers.

Yes, because all stars are quantum phenomena, and are therefore murdered by astrophotographers.

Now, that button backlighting is already taken, I intend to patent a method of illuminating homes and workplaces by means of independent lighting devices driven by electricity, combustion, or chemical luminescence.

Don't worry, royalties will be small and friendly.

Mark Turney: I’ll stick to my IPS display for now.

@toughluck Samsung is the largest manufacturer of OLED screens for phones and tablets, with a higher quality than LG. What you mention is large screens for TVs, but that is another market and large screens have different properties and present different challenges.

On the phone and tablet screen sizes, Samsung is the OLED leader, uses its screens in a lot of phones (from flagships to entry-level) and they are the very best available.

I'll stick to my proper OLED screen, made by Samsung. That LG experiment of making small OLED screens is not indicative how real OLEDs look like.
