"Whichever you choose, advances in technology and a broader range of choices can only be a good thing."

Not for my bank account!

Searching: He must be using Sony Alpha 7RII.

No, not the A7R2, these were shot with the R2D2.

redisred: Really bummed they changed the contrast engine, the main reason I used it was because I loved the look of the hue-shifting contrast tool they had before. Now it's doing a similar and annoying approach to what Lightroom does, I wish there was at least a way to choose old or new.

Well yes, if you edit the separate curves for each color channel differently. But it seemed redisred was talking about the basic Contrast slider.

Uwe GR: These guys have cheek. I am using C1 as a sidekick to Adobe Lightroom and DXO (plus other tools for handling raw photos), and to ask users for a 99€ update after less than a year of having bought a full license is a tall order. Will not upgrade, especially since reasons to use other software as well (face recognition, lens corrections, ...) are not addressed.

I love C1 Pro and have used it for years, but I'll wait to upgrade, mostly for the same reason I don't buy the latest smartphone upon release and I didn't immediately upgrade to Windows 10: I wait for the bugs to be worked out.

It looks like C1 Pro 9 has some interesting features, so I'll read their Professor's Blog, watch some webinars on the new tools, and then maybe get around to buying the new version around February or March.

redisred,

I don't understand your statement, and it has me curious. Are you saying that adjusting the Contrast slider in the Exposure tab also shifts the hue in CO8? What about using Curves to adjust contrast?

"It is perhaps because of such attention to detail that the UK has only historic cameras to show, and no current camera manufacturing."

A touch resentful?

Photo #8 is terrible. It's such a flat image.

On article Holga Digital camera project launched on Kickstarter (149 comments in total)

"The Holga Digital camera features original optics that are known for their dark corners..."

Did they just try to advertise heavy vignetting as a positive feature?

Smartphone.

This article isn't about you; it's about global camera sales. You, me, and most people visiting this site own cameras, but we're a minority. The majority use smartphones as their camera of choice now.

"The dp1 Quattro joins the 40mm equivalent dp2 Quattro"

Isn't it 45mm equivalent?

These are looking more and more like Ricoh's GXR concept. Maybe next Sony will pair a curved full frame sensor with a nice prime in a single unit for smartphones.

Fascinating! Maybe in a few years, interchangeable lensor cameras, like the Ricoh GXR, will become the new norm.

I'm waiting for the Vertu Pleistocene Touch, made from certified saber-toothed tiger ivory.

Bing Chow: I guess the US has fully recovered from the recession.

The people who would be in the market for this phone were never affected much by the recession, and recovered a while ago as soon as the stock market rebounded. The rest of the US is a different story.

This is a bit confusing. As others have noted, there's subject motion between the individual shots of each scene. The description says 30,000 photographs were taken for this video. Even if each scene is composed of 50 photographs, that would still be 600 scenes, which is far more than appear in this video. So were the cameras shooting bursts at each scene?

As part of the post work done here, it says the photographs had to be slowed down and stabilized. Umm... what? How do you slow down a photograph, or stabilize one that's already been taken? Were these phones shooting images or video? There's an audio component to each scene, so perhaps they were actually shooting short video clips?
