sh10453: There is a good number of free products available, and they have plenty of teeth in them.
LightZone, Picturenaut, SilkyPics (free version which comes with Panasonic cameras), and RAWTherapee are some examples.

It would be nice (and certainly useful to the fans and readers) if DPR would review and COMPARE these products among themselves and with some commercial ones.

Another inexpensive product ($40 to $80, much cheaper if not the latest version), which is a full fledged graphics editor, and it can handle RAW images as well, is Corel's Paint Shop Pro (probably the oldest graphics editor still in existence for PC's) is worth a full review

I'm not a fan of the outrageous prices in the $500, $600, ..., $1200 range.

Any readers opinions / support to this request? Please keep it simple and minimal.

I love how you like to exercise prior restraint to someones reply.

Tell me what editing package cost $500 to $1200?

You can subscribe to Adobe PS/LR 2015 for $9.99 per month.

That was the moronic part of your comment. I could say more but I've been warned to be brief.

On article Street photography tips with Zack Arias (149 comments in total)

> Photographer Zack Arias is particularly known for is his street work ...

I've never regarded Arias as a street photographer at all, not sure where that notion comes from. He hails from Atlanta as I do and he has no local recognition as a street photographer.

His notoriety in part stems from his studio work with a single light source.

svx94: If Nikon pay attention to Fuji's X forums, and how many Nikon-Fuji adapters sold, it is not hard to figure out that those are the people Nikon LOST (with me being one of them). Nikon 1 is a disaster, face it.

@yabokkie - "Fuji do not have good camera, nor they have good lens."

Where do you come up with such nonsense?

On article Exhibition Review: 8x10 By Impossible (85 comments in total)
In reply to:

MartinaB: Just beautiful. Photography is amazing now, but it was amazing back when. I have done some big format work and there is something intangible , hard to describe about it. If you can go see the show! If you can, buy an old 8x10 and try this film. Be patient and you will be rewarded.

I've used 8x10 for decades and made tons of alternative process prints. I understand and embrace the concept of wabi-sabi. The examples shown are very creative and exploit the characteristics of the film.

Having said that I also think this product is way over priced CRAP and never plan to use it.

Youngsters purchase good film and support film manufacters this stuff is dodo.

Oops I'm repeating myself.

jhinkey: This lens and the OM-D E-M5 may make me finally get into m43 for a compact alternative to my Nikon D700 + FX lenses.

We have an embarrassment of riches with superlative new cameras and lenses and what do we get? Petty groaning and griping, things haven't ever been so good.

On article Shooting with the Leica M9-P (620 comments in total)
In reply to:

lxstorm: SLR/DSLR is a superior instrument optically it let you see what you are shooting that is a very important addendum for a person who do care about image outcome :) " 'tunnel-vision' of an SLR" just a bloody Leica M marketing nothing more.

Second SLR/DSLR lenses could deliver same/better IQ even in case of film media and for digital capture DSLR concept works better due to angle of incidence issue in case of silicon.

Third leaf shutter lenses do render image differently that is true but Leica M lenses are not.

Fourth only camera with movements let you shoot wide open on various occasions Leica has no movements.

Fifth knowledgeable photographer can survive handling tripod or Broncolor powerpack and 99% of occasions that would blow Leica M out of the water.

For most shooters M body just a compact seriously overpriced status travel camera with an obtrusive outdated viewfinder/focusing mechanism that is true. Leca M lenses deliver spectacular IQ being used wide open that is true too.

What a load.

Alfie Smith: Noob question: Is this a rangefinder or a DSRL?

No you don't know what you are talking about. And your attempt at analogies simply fail.

The sensors used for the M9 are excellent and have nothing to do with Kodak's marketing and sales failures.

Move along, you are simply trolling!
