Jim in AZ: "Highsmith, a distinguished and richly-published American photographer, has donated her work to the Library of Congress since 1992. Starting in 2002, Highsmith provided scans or photographs she shot digitally with new donations to allow rapid online access throughout the world. Her generosity in dedicating the rights to the American people for copyright free access also makes this Archive a very special visual resource. "

Her intent is clearly to make the photos publicly available without copyright restriction. Me thinks Getty will prevail here.

Getty can "claim" copyright as a "compilation" (of course will be up to a court to determine if Getty added enough creativeness to warrant copyright in its own).

Bach Photo: Just bought one and I'll be returning it, 72 degree air conditioned room and over-heat alarm goes on at 22 minute of recording time. That is not just unacceptable, it's ridiculous. This could be a great camera, I'm really not sure how it scored as high as it did with such a glaring flaw.

Have you tested what it does at lower resolution setting? I'm interested in the camera for stills but would like the option of some video from time to time.

I love the K3 II but this I might spend the money to upgrading to.

The lens looks like a wide field eye piece.

In reply to:

oheggo: Received a new U2713Hb from Dell as a replacement for my new U2711 with some problems. IMO the anti glare coating are better on the U2713, but it is a lot worse in terms of viewing angle issues. With this monitor size you will see uneven density and color shifts (yellow/blue) even if you are positioned right in front of the U2713. I would not recomend it for critical Photoshop work even if it covers 99% of Adobe RGB.

Glossy clear coating is the only way to go for photo editing.

Hope it doesn't have the usual crappy anti-glare matte that makes it impossible to distinguish noise from the matte artifacts.

$89 PS would be a dream and might actually make more money for Adobe.

Some of those EXR images are awesome and if you need to reproduce difficult lighting conditions then this is the camera.
