On article Why brand market share shouldn't matter to you (552 comments in total)

Underestimate even short term changes in consumer behaviour at your own peril.

Great work.

Composition and lighting aside I think Benjamin succeds in conveying a powerful message.

Prognathous: 20-25 seconds delay for handheld PS is terrible. The camera should do the processing when idle, not prevent the photographer from taking more pictures until it's done.

I think that Prognathous is suggesting postponing the merger. Which is a great idea if technically possible.

I can honestly say that I never tried that. But this limitation is not buffer related - even a well-specced PC will take it's time to merge the images especially with the supposedly artifact-free end result.

Yes. I defintely do see a reason for immediate processing - personally I always review taken shots on location. I might have missed something or messed up my settings. How are you going to adjust your settings without knowing how it panned out the first time around?

Pedro Ernesto Guerra Azevedo: Pentax is the Best !

AF is not top-of-the line. Lenses are somewhat outdated - even the limiteds are film era lenses. Apart from that Pentax cameras are very impressive indeed.

Innovative, well rounded and great value. I've looked at the K1 more times than I care to count. But ultimately decided on a slow switch to SONY from Nikon and Olympus.

Sure. If you really think that a Mountain is going to move within the next 25 seconds.

Landscapes are static. Lighting conditions may change so
consider it a challenge. Get the exposure right the first time around.

Glass half-empty kinda guy, eh?

goblin: A deliberate closure of what was supposed to be an open system:

- Olympus announces pro lenses that mirror Panasonic's existing offers (at least for the 45mm f:1.2)

- Panasonic coughs up a whole fully blown alter ego to the Oly OM-D E-M1mk2, just for the sake of giving owners of Panasonic lenses drooling over Oly's dual image stabilization a Panny body to attach their lenses to (as Dual IS works only within the same brand - Oly lens + Oly body or Panny lens + Panny body).

- Owners of the legacy (rare but excellent) Panaleica 4/3 lenses have only Olympus (E-M1 & E-M1ii)'s shoulder to cry on if they want decent AF performance with their lenses via adapter. Owners of other (read: Zuiko) 4/3 lenses are, of course, set to stay with the E-M1 (& E-M1ii) because Panny would implement anything short of Depth From Moon Craters AF, as long as it's not standard PDAF to handle legacy (and non Panasonic) lenses.

All of this instead of working on making both companies' dual IS cross compatible.

Bless you and your childlike naivety.

They are very much competing for the same customers.

Vote with your vallets. If enough of us do that and leave Adobe we can make sure that no other company will follow this model. As consumers we have every right to buy well defined products where we decide when it's time to upgrade.

Adobe makes no guarantees with regards to how often they'll update the app. There will come a time where they'll likely stop updating frequently or raise prices materially. That's the nature of chasing ever increasing profits.

cgarrard: I'll allow myself to pontificate Dale.... I'll quote:

"the camera that landed in our laps still felt rough around the edges and a bit, well... unfinished when it arrived."

That is one major reason Samsung isn't in the camera business any longer.

A piece of advice to stop yourself from looking like a fool. Read the entire piece. Not just a small quote...

Agreed. But we both read the article. Why would DPR change their ways if they work?

Makes sense to me.
Tech improves over time - until it plateaus for a while.

Why is that so hard to grasp?

dan pv: Extremely post-processed images can't say nothing about the real character and IQ of the lens. Just look at the un-natural shines in the eyes of the the girls and the artificial colors of the first photo. I can only think that extrem PP was necessary to make the IQ of the lens look acceptable...
Trying to fool people this way is not a fair advertising.

*model on the right*

It could be fill flash.

And curse you. Now I cant stop thinking about how much the model on the left looks like a cross-eyed Gal Gadot (with the gorgeus-slider set to 50).

Yup. The joy of being eternally known as the biggest joke on Earth.

A laughing stock for billions of intelligent, non-xenophobic people for many, many years to come.

We'll manage.

Georgeee: Can they put the logo "Think Tank" under the lid? Look conspicuous

Gtvone. Sure.

My point was simply that the logo wasn't immediately visible. But a trained eye should be able to spot it - correct.

BTW - visited your website. Really great stuff. You really have nailed a certain look - your PP skills are very impressive. I mean that as big compliment.

When carrying the bag the logo is not visible. Im guessing that's how It's usually worn. At least that's how i wear mine
