  • I agree with James, above : sensor tech is the bottleneck. m4/3 IQ hasn't much improved since spring 2012. You shoot An E-M10.3 today, the results look identical to those from the original E-M5. ...
  • Replied in Airdrop.
    Simple, quick, wireless, cloudless: (1) process your selected pictures from C1 as JPEGs--just output them into a folder on your desktop, and then open the folder in a finder window. (2) Put your ...
  • Adobe's revenue last quarter was $2.2B. Or, about a thousand-ish times what Serif has pulled in over the 16-month life of Affinity Photo for iPad.

    That's not a worldwide Photoshop user number, but...

  • Agreed.

    But I certainly understand why tech and software companies might want people to try. Editing big files on an iPad almost certainly ties you into various cloud storage schemes, which means...

  • The most newsworthy statement here, to me: Serif tells us only 250,000 people, *worldwide*, are using the product.

    Yikes.

    That number is so much smaller than I would have imagined, based on the...

  • Now that we've had a look at the photo in question, the real problem here is the light. Bad light = garbage photograph. The camera is immaterial. I don't disagree with the obvious diagnosis of ...
  • Nah. Once the transition to something new begins, m4/3 will recede as briskly into the past as 4/3, OM, and half-frame SLRs did before it. Recent events question your lens argument. Look to Nikon, ...
  • I understand why people want system continuity. You've got a lens investment. The manufacturers implied they'd be there for you if you made one. But that's just marketing, right? And we all know ...
  • I'd take the rant 100x more seriously if Kanarek didn't use it as oppo to post a blog link and a minor-market Harper's Bazaar variant cover. And meanwhile, we still have to endure the non-logic of ...
  • Lens investment defines the need. Many photographers who spend $$$$ on lenses (say, those who've bought the thousand-dollar 16-80/2.8-4) do so with the understanding--encouraged by the camera ...
  • Replied in No.
    Thom Hogan says Nikon has prototyped and tested a few different DX mirrorless possibilities, all of which involve annoying trade-offs: (1) a DX "Z" mount, which means the camera has to be big enough ...
  • Hello! There's nothing to "get." Nothing here to understand. Everything about the Nikon Z cameras--like 99% of what's been written or said about every other camera, here--is performative internet ...
  • There are several dimensions to being "right" or "wrong," here. I'll won't miss the second slot as security (though I don't criticize those who would). Rather, I'll miss it as a workflow ...
  • Replied in I did :(
    I did note this, unhappily. But I await further testing to see whether Nikon’s approach ultimately involves the same negative performance impacts we see with Sony. Seems like there isn’t enough Z6 ...
  • Yup. I'm in. What I like: (1) Day-of-release lenses. The 35mm fast prime is, in my mind, the most important, flexible, critical lens of any system. It's crazy that Sony still doesn't offer a compact, ...
  • The only hitch in my giddyap is that if that sticker were telling you which way the SD angled "notch" corner needs to go, it would have the SD card contacts pointed away from the interior of the ...
  • EVERYONE, Look closely again, at this shot from Nikon Rumors, of the Z6's card slot--specifically, note the yellow, half-obscured "FRONT" sticker on the card slot door, telling you which way to ...
  • Mike, Jonathan "never shot a Nikon before" Brady, et al. , look closely at this picture of the Z6 XQD card slot from Nikon Rumors--specifically, see the half-obscured yellow "FRONT" sticker on the ...
  • (Apologies to Harold Bloom, but I just couldn't help myself.) The anxiety you note isn't unique to the m43 forum. It's everywhere at DPReview; in fact, I'd argue it's the main driver of most forum ...
  • Guilty as charged: I am a woman in love with a terrific lens available now at a budget price, via an outstanding retailer. I imagined the experience put me in possession of information that might ...
