  • @Reilly: yes, C1 has better control of fine detail (and better control of highlights and shadows) than LR. I'll use your word: the victory, there, is "absolute." In part because C1's demosaic...

  • @matthew saville: yup.

    While Adobe has been busy pushing LR toward the consumer market space, Phase One has devoted their attentions to professional values like software speed and core image...

  • Kudos, OP! I mean, Everywhere I go: thousands of full-frame camera shooters "kicking and screaming" whenever I lift my smartphone. I can't even skip out the corner store for a sandwich without...

  • Huh. I'd include the 28/2.8D in the "positive experience" category. For wide-shallow environmental portraits, particularly, I like it quite a bit better than the 35 f/2D. (1) If you're a deep-depth / ...
  • These are really great results, Brian--thanks so much for sharing! Obviously, the most impressive functionary in the imaging chain is you! That's just a massive amount of quality photography you're ...
  • Yes: I use Totally Rad Pro Retouch 2.0 actions in Photoshop. ( Here's a 15% off coupon if it interests anyone. ) They're lightning fast, dead easy to customize to your preferred intensity, and very ...
  • Yup. Smoke-and-mirrors. So do I. Use it often on my 12.9" iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil. Retouching IS a workflow. You move a starting photograph through steps toward a finish. That is a workflow. ...
  • Neither can an iPad. "WHAT?!?" you say? You just watched an iPad do it in the video above! But you didn't. Be more critical about what the video, above is showing: (1) The original, pre-retouch ...
  • What's hilarious about this response is that you just parrot my explanation below, in green! Check it out! Which tells me you didn't read what I wrote. You're not responding to anything. You're ...
  • No, it's not. Just stop. I caught you in a generalization that wasn't true. You were wrong. Learn from it. Right up there in yellow, you say: "Otherwise, you loose [sic] sensitivity by closing down ...
  • I have a few suggestions for you, Serjojeee. First, my qualifications: * 4-year D750 owner shooting weekly fashion, with a fair amount of dynamism * Just came off a weeklong rental eval of a Sony A7.3
  • Replied in Wrongo!
    Wrong. You lose sensitivity by closing down the aperture with Sony mirrorless. Other mirrorless brands keep the lens wide open during autofocus regardless of the shooting aperture selected; they ...
  • Replied in It's correct.
    It's correct. I'll provide some tech background for you (and others) to consider, below. One of the great technological leaps Sony has made (among many) is the way they've integrated phase ...
  • I've loved my time with the A7.3, but there's ample room for improvement. Listed in the order of magnitude by which the various faults annoy me, I think it needs (1) to get rid of its default ...
  • Replied in OK, that's fair.
    Fair! Wait there a sec. Why do you assume that "computational photography" won't continue to develop and improve at its recent pace? Not that I especially want it to--again, I'm not advocating the ...
  • Business companies succeed all the time, too. Or they have periods of success, then failure, then success. Sometimes the seeds of their success are sewn in the midst of near-certain failure. Apple ...
  • So, here the thing: this is not a question of "seeming." I know it's not a good fit because I tried to make it work, diligently, for months. Also, it's not really a question of whether it's a good fit
  • Is the 12" Macbook not a "lightweight device?" 12.9" iPad pro weighs 692 grams, without its keyboard cover. The 12.9" iPad Pro's smartkeyboard weighs 340 grams--so together, the iPad Pro + Keyboard ...
  • (continued from above--last one!)

    You (and Bill Claff) seem very, very certain that the ADC is the "end" of the RAW pipeline in all the cameras whose sensors you're measuring, such that you can...

  • (continued from above)

    Without further information, it seems to me that if Claff is using RAW data recorded on a memory card to make his observations, then he's measuring a sensor + ADC + ?

    If he...
