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....

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

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........

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 (678 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!

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?

kecajkerugo: Good to see the "tiny" X-T10 sensor out-performs the Sony and others in the ISO invariance test :)
Resolution is not on the same level , which is obvious, but the ability to recover the shadows and still keep the right colour with little noise is amasing!

To me it doesn't matter whether this is true or not. The results I see are all I'm interested in. Usable ISO 6400 images (and I don't even care if Fuji "cheats" and it's only ISO 4000 or 3200 compared to other cameras). I know I can take a portrait of someone illuminated only by the light of their mobile phone and that I can use a shutter speed fast enough to get a sharp image and with effectively very little noise.

End results are all that matters...

On challenge Rainy day - Black and White (22 comments in total)

It's a really interesting topic. Such a shame it is restricted to film only.

I would love such an adapter from Canon EF to Fuji X - even if it were manual but allowed adjustment of aperture somehow...

On article Fujifilm announces 1.4x teleconverter for X100/X100S (129 comments in total)

The press release mentions that it is "offering a 5.5" macro shooting distance". Anyone got any idea what the magnification ratio will be?

On article 5 things iPhone photographers want from WWDC (26 comments in total)
In reply to:

fyngyrz: 1) The ability to nest folders

2) The ability to have unlimited items in a folder

3) Removal of the barriers between apps sharing data

4) A "finder-like" application that allows file management

Without all of these things, no app can benefit from synergy with another app; meaning, every benefit and feature has to be re-invented by every app developer. If the iPad is to become more than a one-trick-at-a-time-per-pony, the original idea of a sandboxed, childproof toy needs to die in favor of a more robust, general computing-friendly platform.

The bad news: Apple shows no signs of realizing this.

The good news: Someone eventually will, and Apple will be left supplying tablets to the clueless until they catch up.

Items 3 and 4 were the main reasons I moved to Android......

On article Actual Pixels - the pixel peeping app for iOS (33 comments in total)

Gallery on my Samsung Note 10.1 does show a 100% view, and the image dimensions are correct - 4896 * 3264 for my Fuji X-Pro1 files. What I found disappointing is Photoshop Touch and its limitations on the same device...given that Snapseed can also work with the full resolution file as well.
