It is hard do decide between 2017 ON1 RAW developer and Affinity 1.5
ON1 software UI is made for photographer, while Affinity UI is more of traditional PS.
Should I buy both? That is why it is hard to decide.

On article Fast Five: Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V Review (407 comments in total)

Is it right to compare cameras based on burst rate?
I'd rather compared Pana ZS-100 with the same sensor but greater ZOOM range. For me ZOOM is more important than burst

s_grins: WOW!!!
It was really fast, before camera hits the stores.
I appreciate the time and effort that DPR invested in this review.
Now it is time to read.
Thanks again.

Good luck. I'm really interested to learn your first impressions - post them on forum. I'm planning to get this wonder at the end of the year, and for now on I'm busy collecting information.
Cheers
Simon

Beginning from ISO 1000 and up, noise is taking over... Kudos to Mr. Williams who managed to handle this camera with grace.

raindance: I tell you one thing that clearly stands out is how much better these images look compared to the Sony A series bodies. I still can't understand why Sony has so much praise.

People behind M43 are better photographers.

On article What is equivalence and why should I care? (2325 comments in total)

Equivalence is a teaching when well informed circles want to inform me that their areas are proportional to R square.
The very core of the teaching about sensors equivalence is "total light collected" which is a sacred cow.
The very core of the teaching about lenses equivalence is DOF which is also sacred cow.
Well, I'm not greedy. I'd let them open up lens iris, and to set shutter to the longest possible, and collect all the light possible - just to make them lightly rich.

Good luck, guys. I already know how big you're - R square.

jacketpotato: Gosh i digged the swivel screen I used it almost exclusively.

Low light i just couldn't keep it steady hand held (no image stabilisation). If I took plenty landscape, architecture I would kept it, in the end it's F stop at 85mm-120mm just wasn't fast enough for my requirements.

Nevertheless what an engineering visionary mirrorless offering : 4years before Olympus Pen, 9years before Rx10. There is no 16-80mm F2.8-4.8 Apsc even now. Zeiss lens alone was worth more than the R1.

So many forumees seeked updated R1. I dare say they would sell well, especially keeping same design aesthetic.

I do remember final words of DPR camera review: "lens alone cost $1000".

I still have my R1 in good working condition and, sometimes, take photos. I want to have this camera alive.

Carl Mucks: Panasonic cameras have long been known for their bleak colors and lifeless pictures, which impossible resuscitate even in Lightroom. This one is no exception. They really need to learn how to produce good colors and tonality from Olympus.

Compare your and my galleries. They spell opposite.

What I need to know about GFX 50S? Nothing.
This is the camera for people with special needs, not for me.

I could not believe my eyes - what the list of obsolete and obscure software it is.

OK, probably, I'm old and outdated, and in modern days all photos are taken by cellphones and processed by software designed exclusively for cellphone camera use.

EthanP99: I like it, nice and easy to setup and fairly priced.

It takes me 10-20 min to set up my strobes and background for a product shot, but thats a whole other thing.

Nice product.

I do not use strobes for products photography. I live in peace with 1/2 sec exposure - there is no reason to hurry up.
My primary concern with light is unwanted reflections

LOL! Another 43 camera!
.8 kilo body, and, I guess, at least .5 kilo lens.
Maybe it makes sense for studio work, but does it need GPS?

I have already invest in ON1 software and have no regrets.

I'm willing to look. Looking at photos is my hobby. I do not have Instagram account, and I can't find photos on website related to your account

You think you do. The only your available photo does not support your claim.
