Does it come with a trailer to haul it? : )

Please put these on drones with sharp claws and beaks too, and program them to chase us down the street. Life is getting boring.

Hmmm, does it mean I will suddenly be bombarded with ads for wrinkle cream and nose hair clippers?

jkrumm: Do any of you Raw Therapee users know the easy way to darken a blue sky when converting to a black and white?

Thanks, I figured there was a way or two. Like Darktable, it's an impressive program, but a little overwhelming (it has that in common with Photoshop).

Thanks. I was hoping I could find something like the luminosity sliders in Lightroom.

Mike FL: Panasonic is way behind in this kind of show off. Years back, Canon showed the world a sensor can see things in almost totally dark.

Panasonic will continually use SONY sensor for years to come just like Canon's sensor is not as as good as SONY's sensor.

We're all doomed!

On article Google AI adds detail to low-resolution images (149 comments in total)

Perhaps one day it will be so good that when someone in a movie says "enhance detail" to the computer and a tiny, unreadable, blurry license plate is suddenly large and clear, we believe it.

It's okay, but it's a gimmick. I think I'd prefer them in their normal outdoor cloths.

On article F is for '4th': Hands-on with Fujifilm X100F (422 comments in total)
In reply to:

kobakokh: This Fijifilm has just one small problem: lens is much less sharper then 28mm lens of Ricoh GR. And also if Fuji will add to AF system something like Ricoh's Snap focus, its will be absolutely great camera. That Snap focus is way better then maybe any focus system in the world...

It's all good.

OhWeh: The same price as the Leica M10, but so much more camera for the money. More IQ, AF, sealed, ....

I think we can all agree that some apples are good, as are some oranges.

bobbarber: Epson printers are like the little girl in the poem.

When they're good, they're very, very good.

But when they're bad, they're horrid.

The fickleness and expense of high-end printers has got to be the most frustrating disadvantage to digital photography. One clogged nozzle and your print is banded.

With all the miracle improvements we see in cameras almost daily, why can't they get printers right? Why is there an Epson (slightly challenged by Canon) monopoly?

I need a new printer right now, and I see a big "Sucker!" sign in my mind every time I think about clicking the order button. I'm afraid to take the plunge.

I've owned the C88, C88+, Stylus 1200, R1800, and 2200. I have gotten SPECTACULAR results at times. The C88 models were the most trouble-free for me, but only 4 colors.

But in the end come the inevitable clogs, pizza-wheel marks, drops of black ink from the inefficient waste system, etc.

It is easier to control dust on an enlarger than deal with this crap. Seriously.

I've had great luck with my 2880 which I've used for years. Funny thing is just the other day it gave me problems, but it was my fault. I live in Minnesota now and the relative humidity gets super low mid winter. I need to print every week or so. A few cleaning cycles took care of it.... and some ink.

KTSFotos: Incredible, it seems fake, like a crime movies from 90s, taken behind the scenes.

It looks staged because the lighting and color and sharpness look perfect, as well as the expression and gesture. The photographer probably had the camera dialed in for the event.

On article Flickr reveals its top 25 photos of 2016 (190 comments in total)
In reply to:

PPierre: Thanks for sharing ! Some are very beautiful, and if I were the author of any of those, I would be pretty happy and proud. However, I find all these very "Flickresque", as are mine too since I've joined Flickr, I must admit.

I've always wondered to what extent adhering to platforms like Flickr, 500px or Instagram influenced the way you take photos. This could make a great article, DPReview, don't you think ?

Depends on who you follow and what groups you participate in. If you just browse the popular photos they tend to be somewhat bland, like commercials.

Actually the concept is not bad, just the price and the editing. In the review she likes how it's like shooting film, having to wait. But then they way over-edited the photos, only returning four. With film you get everything back. They should give everything, but highlight the best, so users can download their own picks too and learn from mistakes. You could even limit the camera to 36 exposures before they are returned if you want to get extra filmy. Also it would likely be irritating to not have at least exposure compensation as an option.
