User1234567890: Should have used design of R5, with option to add grip.
Too heavy this way.

You haven't shot with a Nikon D1-6-series or Canon 1dx -series, I can tell.
Having the grip as an integral part of the body makes camera less tall and muuch more solid!

Joed700: I'm surprised there's no mention of what kind of photographic equipment were used to take each photo. It would be nice if that was included IMO.

Not sure they are in great condition. They must have received a hefty dose of radiation over the years.

Jon555: GNSS don't have any satellites, it's just a term for using a lot/all of the positioning systems that are up there instead of just one. Many devices have been able to do this for ages.
My iPhone supports A-GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO and QZSS, for example.
I'm sure "GPS" chips in many cameras support other satellite positioning systems too, as there's little point in doing a GPS-only chip these days.

Entropy is not wrong at all. GPS is a Global Navigation Satellite System, GNSS.

Also, a GNSS system isn’t a fully operational system just because it uses 2 frequencies.

Whenever you use more than 1 constellation, I.e. GPS+GLO, you are using, by definition, GNSS. Only if you are only and solely using the GPS constellation you are using GPS.

It has been like that for quite some time.

MN13: ProRAW?

Already supported as ProRaw is essentially DNG.

Photodog2: Does this M1 native C1 apply to the Capture One Express versions limited to specific brands: Sony, Nikon, Fuji? Or are those later releases? I'm currently using C1 Express for Sony and for Nikon in my Intel Mac but would love to see M1 native releases of both for my M1 Mac.

Yes, it is the same installer-package for all variants

brycesteiner: "Capture One had to be rearchitected from the ground up"

We've been saying this for years. Apple had introduced Metal years ago, starting this transition. If Capture One would have kept up, like Serif,, customers wouldn't have been so upset about the speed.

Metal is not the challenge nor the performance gainer here. The CPU is.

zakk9: Sorry, but I'm not impressed. It's just creating a more complicated viewing experience, and the video quality is meh...

As a photographer, it's my job to create the image or video that reflects my creative vision of an event. By leaving to the viewer to move around in a 360 degrees view, I'm merely a computer operator. I hope this is not the future of photography.

So, you are afraid to become obsolete because the user now have the ability to "point" the viewpoint to where he thinks is interesting?
I see it as 2 different things. What they are capturing is documentation where it makes complete sense to enable user-interaction. What a photographer would create is an interpretation or reality, a piece of art.

Impulses: Comparing thks vs a big clunky ARCA plate is pretty misleading IMO... Peak Design's plate is ARCA compatible in addition to working with their own Capture clips and it's only 1g heavier and 0.22cm thicker, indistinguishable for all intents and purposes while being way more versatile (extra Anchor hold points etc)...

And PD's plate isn't even the thinnest cheap-ish brand name plate I've seen. Jobu has some even more minimal ones with half dovetails on only two sides, I don't really see the need tho, even PD's is small enough for just about the smallest ILC out there like the GM1 and the extra contact area & rubber should help with twisting.

Thanks! Awesome to see 10x factors of safety in the design!

Aluminium would be a very poor choice of material for this. Way too soft. That is the thing about titanium, very stiff at very low density.

If you made the above design out of alu, it would break the first time you mistreated it. I think you would be able to bend and crack it with your bare hands.

Why not refrain from commenting, when you have no idea what you are commenting on ?

Did you actually watch the video? From your comment, I guess not..

Class A: The unlimited number of healing/cloning source points is great, but the new brush access design has severe downsides.

Previously, one used one universal brush (keyboard shortcut "B") that did the right thing, depending on the layer type that was selected.

Now there are are three different type of brushes: Adjustment ("B"), Healing ("Q"), and Cloning ("S").

While it is cool that one can just select one of these and start drawing -- a corresponding layer of the right type will either be created or automatically selected -- there are also two serious downsides:

In what version of CO could you use the Alt-key for alternating?

Jon555: Oh and I'll eat my hat if its noise reduction is even in the ballpark of what Neat Image 8 can manage... I'd be surprised if it wasn't some way behind DXO's PRIME...

CO20 is doing much better NR, try it out on high iso image. There even a free trial

Dxo’s prime take magnitude longer to process. You can’t have both ultra fast and ultra high quality. It will always be a balance.

Vadimka: Actually I discovered this effect 10 years ago, when I accidentally cleaned my 85/1.2 with fine grade sandpaper.

..... You really don't get what the lens does. huh? It is not a soft-focus lens. It modifies the out-of-focus areas, not the areas in focus...

BobSac: Very old tech and useful for some applications.
I've never liked it and it does reduce light transmission significantly.

@BobSac, oh well, then it's not for you, move along....

christiangrunercom: Introducing more bureaucracy is the fast lane to losing out on innovation. Not innovating is the surefire way of losing to the Chinese.
Complacency will likely be the end of the era of Western countries being tech-leaders....

As long as you follow the party-line, there is much less bureaucracy. Tread outside the thin red line, and you "disappear", it seems.
