I just don't want to deal with all the pounds and pounds of paper.

On article Lightroom Mobile update brings Raw HDR capture mode (59 comments in total)

NJOceanView: Everyone has their own HDR preferences, but I am very pleased with this. In doing interior photos, you are able to see the detail outside, but it is softer -- meaning a bit bright still and with only moderate contrast. That feels very natural to me. When I have tried to compensate to ensure some real punchy views through the window, the interiors are too dark and need some pushing. But I appreciate that, as I greatly dislike the HDR style that makes photos look like they are electrified. So from my own personal standpoint, I'm glad to have this in my arsenal.

LR exposure blend is excellent.

philmar: Don't really care Adobe. You seem to only make changes to increase subscription numbers. Thousands if current subscribers are angry that you do little to improve the current speed (lack of) of the program. Try upgrading the code so that LR better uses the power of GPU acceleration. Marketers have taken over the development of LR.

Plenty fast on my computer.

Peter von Reichenberg: Even if it would be made of gold, it's just another PC/Windows. I have had enough of all the freezes, crashes, reinstalls...since I switched to MC (I was resisting many stupid years) my life has changed and the sun shines every day.

Windows 10 does not freeze or crash.

Digital Suicide: I'm getting rid of my Nikon gear in the near future. I just can't stand incompetence at their warranty service. I've been sending three times to calibrate my defective lens without any success. I am doomed with this lens.

Getting rid of Nikon gear is Digital Suicide indeed.

Didn't I just buy this six months ago for 1399 in Surface form?

princecody: Curious how many Nikon D810 users would trade their camera gear for the M10 & this lens 🤔

I'm not talking about the old Sigma, duh! The DPR samples (and this is what I'm going by, not some feverish fantasy) of this Leica lens show less detail and certainly no better color than any D800 series would produce with a two hundred dollar lens, and if you think differently, you're simply deluding yourself.

I have, many thousands of times, way better than this Leica rich guy jewelry could ever produce. Better pixels, lol. The fact is that exquisite optics are never in this life going to outperform a 12 to 24 MP deficit at f8. In your dreams maybe. For the bokeh people, all we have to do is compare the DPR sample shots with the Sigma Art 85 from a few days ago to know the emperor has no clothes.

Well actually it would, quite handily. The 50D is tack sharp stopped down, easily outresolving a D810. No lens is magically going to manufacture pixels and 36 FF beats 24 FF hands down. The Leica is a nice camera, but 24MP is simply not going to cut it, at least for me.

The D810 with a $119 50D at f8 would certainly blow away this grossly overpriced monstrosity for landscape without even breaking a sweat. For portraiture, the D810 with a Sigma 85 or a Nikon 105 1.4 would similarly do a number on the Leica.
