Marques Lamont: As shown here, good shots can be taken with an iPhone and processed for maximum effect.

It's not the iPhones that can't cut it. It's a capable enough tool.

But your average reporter can't cut it with an iPhone.

And there's the next guy who thinks it's the camera that makes the photo...

Plastek: Wow... there's seriously so much more traffic over Europe than US? I thought that North America is most busy region in air flight.

Let's just say that the population of Europe (excluding Russia) about matches the population of all of North America (including Alaska, Canada, Greenland) plus Central America and the Carribean. Just crammed into a much smaller area. Go figure.

JEROME NOLAS: Is this for real? They would have to be professionals...

Well, _she_ obviously know how to present herself in a jump like that

If only it worked at all. Neither Firefox or Chrome are able to run the site. Chrome breaks the Albums view and Slideshows, Firefox breaks LightTable :-( It used to be old, now it's kaputt.

On article Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction (1842 comments in total)
In reply to:

iaredatsun: The main problem is for users who buy a copy of Photoshop and then use it for 5 or 10 years without upgrading*. They have no need to upgrade. The new charging model costs them more.

*When I can, I still choose to use Photoshop from CS4 at work. There's nothing in CS6 that improves my work and CS4 even has a more legible interface design.

These are exactly the users Adobe is obviously not interested in ;)

On article Snapzoom brings any smartphone closer to the action (27 comments in total)

Why would I carry that instead of a superzoom camera.

You can see that in every touristic location now.

I'll call it, um... Sightpadding.

Petka: Good enough for newspaper sports photographers to catch all possible moments and send a few million frames to the photo editor to choose from...

About the fire fighting technique: splashing water on the flames??? Have they never heard about minimum water high pressure spray method, minimizing the water damage (often worse than fire damage).

Might be okay for the garden variety

Yeah, and what about that guy trying to gut himself when starting the chainsaw.

Cool, huh?

I'd rather the BeagleBone, I'm sure a CameraCape is under development. The RPi is too "closed" for my liking.

Iskender: I was going to buy one of these, but then I heard you get only five minutes of untethered battery life. Five minutes! What were the designers thinking??

I heard it has an S² engine. But that may be just a rumor.

On article Capture One Fujifilm X-Trans Raw support tested (211 comments in total)

Looks like the free software digikam is able to do quite a good job on these raw files. There is still a lot of color moire in the studio sample. However, even the camera JPEG is not free of it.

Take a look at my gallery. There's a full size JPEG quick'n'dirty conversion of both samples.

That is most absurd. I have a smartphone, the ultimate mobility device, and I'm supposed to walk into a Polaroid store to have my photos printed?

They'd be better off canning their mushroom and selling that instead.

I've seen it in action. It's not achieving quality results. A gimmick.
