Great take--My no 1 pick actually.

Just downloaded ON1 Raw18. So far totally unusable ,due to it's incredibly slow speed.
All other photo editing programs I have C1 LR classic, ACDsee ult 18 not a problem.

Very disappointing.

It is - it ain't
It's wrong - It's right
Subjective - Objective
Art - Over processing
Just opinions--all good

On article Throwback Thursday: the Olympus C-2100UZ (129 comments in total)

My first digital camera--the infrared light for low light focusing was such a boon and sadly missed on later Oly cameras. I still have it and it still works fine. The image stabilization also was fantastic and is one of the main reasons I have kept plugged into Olympus cameras right up to now with the EM 1 II

On article Ultimate OM-D: Olympus E-M1 Mark II Review (1393 comments in total)

Yes, the price is up there--but here is a perspective to consider. I paid $1799 US dollars for an Oly E5 (body only) six years ago and the E-M1 Mark II far surpasses it on all levels. A $200 price increase from six years ago for a far superior camera.
At the time I bought the E5 there was nary a complaint about it being too expensive. I am still shooting the E5 and it's still creating great images, but E-M1 Mark II will soon be in my camera bag.

Okay--put all these improvements in the next model of the EM-1 and get continuous focus tracking up to speed and I have my next camera--thank you very much.

Much as I really like Sony's recent entries into the FF and ASP-C market, I would be a little concerned if I was heavily invested in Sony camera equipment. They are now also not producing computers anymore--What's next?

On article Adobe launches Lightroom for iPad (130 comments in total)

I already have a photo editing app on my tablet that edits raw files and does nearly everything LR does. It's called Photo Mate R2 and only cost $9.50. It's a pay once stand alone program that actually works pretty darn good.

On article Adobe leaks 'Lightroom Mobile' app (209 comments in total)

Adobe's app priced at $99.00--Photo Mate R2 app for Android is $9:00--a great app for photo editing-does raw files and all--Adobe's pricing goes according to script--that is exorbitant!

Wonderful shots--Polar Bear shot is awesome. Thanks for posting. It's hard to imagine the time, patience and dedication needed to get shots like these. Kudos to all the photogs in this series.

On article Just Posted: Nikon D7100 in-depth review (403 comments in total)

Hmmm...a gold award for a $1200 DLSR that shooters of sports/action and/or wild life--as in birds of flight, etc--can not realistically shoot in raw mode because of the buffer limitations?

Something does not compute for me here. The buffer limitations is a total deal breaker for me. Should it now be known that the 7100 is just for still photography?

On article Tamrac Evolution 9 Photo Backpack Review (105 comments in total)

Ahh--something missing with this backpack--A hip belt. A hip belt. A hip belt.

Also, cannot imagine carrying a decent tripod in the position shown in the first photo--Pack would be bouncing around all over the place while walking or hiking.
