On article iPhone 8 Plus sample gallery (195 comments in total)
In reply to:

pancho_rivera: I really enjoy my iPhone 8 +, sometimes I think it takes better pictures than my D850. In fact the lovely picture of my profile is my wife taken with the iPhone 8 +. I'm really thinking phone photography has surpassed even full frame photography with the amazing portrait mode. I can't even produce photographs this sharp with a FF camera.

@pancho_rivera I agree, and am looking to save loads of money when the iPhone X comes out because I expect it to be better than medium format......

Until the iPhone X :)

tlinn: I'm not sure I get this. If this workflow converted images to TIFF files or DNG files I would see the benefit. If you're going to batch convert to JPG, what's even faster is to shoot JPG. Same result. Or, if you want to preserve editing latitude, RAW + JPG.

What would be better is legit RAW conversion software that could demosaic RAF files into a lossless format—DNG, for example. I suspect Fuji is so paranoid about protecting its IP that it wants to continue to conceal it in the camera hardware, thus this kludge.

If you just shoot jpeg them you're stuck with the film simulation you chose. Jpeg plus raw helps because you can re convert. But driving the whole thing from a PC sounds useful to me.

Sergey Borachev: People die as a result of inadequate control over powerful tools. Let's hope the authorities have learnt from the ongoing and painful experience of allowing guns in the community. Drones are so powerful and difficult to monitor and control, and what we have seen is only the beginning of what certainly will be much more capable and problematic in future as they proliferate.

Yes, if someone does that sort of thing (and I for one can't understand anyone wanting to do that.....), then I would feel the same way as you....

In reply to:

MikeManr: It was a mistake for me to buy a drone when theres alot of restricted air space around my city. I never really get to enjoy my Phantom III.

I find it's not just the restricted airspace, but just the general fear that at any point someone might come up to me and cause trouble because, in some places, the media have made drones public enemy number 1.

I get the point...actually I welcom controls on drone use (registering, whatever, I would do it willingly) and believe that those who flout the rules (fly near an airport for example) should be punished.

I just (maybe over) react to a lot of the popular press hysteria about drones. Probably becauase I now feel so awkward about flying my drone that I don't any more, despite the fact that I got some nice photos.

That is total BS. How anyone can equate a drone with a weapon DESIGNED to kill is beyond me. As we've seen (tragically) in the UK, a van can be used intentionally kill people. They are also very difficult to monitor. Ban them??? Baseball bats can (and have) been used to kill or seriously injure. Also not possible to monitor. Ban them ???

Get some perspective please!

What is a good 'pro level' photo....

Damn, I though of this a month ago. When the trunk (boot) of my Tesla is open you get a great arial view....could have an exhibition, if only I could figure out a way to save the images.

On article Google will no longer develop Nik Collection (392 comments in total)

Shame. Snapseed is great, and used to be a desktop app as well. I think it was after Google acquired Nik that they removed this, which was also a shame...

These are brilliant...so simple!

Graham Meale: Won't be long before our skies are full of them. I've just been listening to an item on the radio describing calls for greater controls of licensing. I wonder how long it'll be before one of them brings down a passenger jet.

Birds have brought passenger planes down. I say we blast them all out of the sky before anyone else gets hurt.

Anyone want to mention the F work here? As in Fuji? Perhaps Canon should stop selling beta products....

Link | Posted on Apr 4, 2017 at 11:13 UTC as 28th comment

Wonder how many people will dismiss this great Fuji attitude with some sort of "they release beta products" type comment....

In reply to:

Graham Austin: don't you mean Surface Book competitor?

Yeah, weird that. I have a surface book and wouldn't consider a mac book pro as a competitor nowadays (and I used Macs for 15 years.....). Apple are in a difficult position with the MBP and iPad IMO....innovate one and you cannibalise the other (eg, add touch screen and pen to the MBP).

I wish these sorts of images were printed in the press, rather than all the scare stories about drones........

Link | Posted on Feb 5, 2017 at 12:23 UTC as 34th comment

Presumably these were shot with the Phantom 3 and the Phantom 4 and that's what the DJI 3 and DJI 4 refer to above.

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85 / G80 Review (691 comments in total)
In reply to:

graybalanced: Even before the review I was thinking, this is the camera to replace my old Canon 7D. This just seals it. Canon loses another customer, not even their excellent lenses could hold me back. Only trick now is to find a G85 in stock...

Totally agree. I took that step 3 years ago switching from Canon to Fuji. Managed to get a decent price for some of my Canon lenses, so that was good.

Of course, you don't want to make switched like that frequently (some people seem to do this...)

On challenge Abstract Silhouette Photo (18 comments in total)
In reply to:

Arnie C Rose: I must admit I'm having considerable difficulty voting in this challenge. There are some wonderful silhouette images but, they appear to be representational or literal. There doesn't appear to be much in the way of abstraction, or an alternative way of interpreting the silhouette.

I agree. Some great images here - and I do very much like the winner. But not much abstract work!

Link | Posted on Feb 22, 2016 at 15:48 UTC

Earlier version of "PS" for iOS and Android were crippled because they were limited in terms of the image size that could be imported. Is this still the case?
