In reply to:

Pat Cullinan Jr: "there are options out there that offer more resolution, or better autofocus, or an entirely different control philosophy."

Could anyone suggest an alternative camera then?

Xt1 or xt2

In reply to:

Ruy Penalva: You don't miss opportunity to make some Nikon marketing. Forget Nikon when showing a Canon product!

Dont be afraid of competition. Its good for both brands.

Every product category in the world does this and rightfully so - it is what readers want.

Coke vs Pepsi
Honda vs Toyota
Apple vs Samsung
Sony vs Microsoft
etc.

This is how the world works. And all reviews of all these products will always draw comparisons.

ossme: Instead of "need to know" articles, What a really want to see is reviews from real photogrpahers in real life situations.

Does ossme live in the Matrix?

HurdyGurdy: I know this is an old thread but heads up C1 PRO 8 no longer works on windows 10 post anniversary upgrade.

C1 being cagey about a fix - seems normal pro users are getting one on demand but no news so far for the SONY PRO version....

Just use version 9. Version 9 is fantastic and works perfectly with Sony.

Lassoni: Very expensive price. Adobe lightroom costs like 150 or something? What makes this any better?

Wrong

cosinaphile: looking over the comments , im reminded of my impression on using these snew sony full frames , a menu nightmare with poor controls poor placement , and unpleasant aesthetics for a whipped cream topping

to me these almost great cameras are hobbled by a design team and control design team that have created a frustrating appliance , rather than a camera , in the manner of a washer dryer that never seems to carry out your wishes no matter how simple , the direct control of fuji is lightyears ahead ... but somehow lacks the grace and form of a ricoh camera with menus to make any shooter smile

That didn't make any sense either.

So lame.

zorgon: Just done the update. It's fairly straight forward to do but takes about 20mins and uses about 20% of the battery.

Don't exaggerate. It doesn't take 20 minutes.

10 tops.

In reply to:

matthias jurisch: The studio test scene shows the X-T2 with better and sharper J-PEG images at all ISO settings compared to my 5D MKIII ???...Are we slowly debunking the myth of FF superiority over A-PSC, or were the X-T2 images sharpened in post processing ???...

Check this out.

He is a troll because this thread is about a firmware for a Sony camera.

Saying the camera has "unpleasant aesthetics for a whipped cream topping" is what 12 year old kids type.

Pathetic.

pelikansalat: Did they license the protocol used for the communication between body and lens like Zeiss or did they reverse-engineer it like Metabones?

"a university research group trying to spawn a company is not a company"

Smart of Sony to reject you if this is true. Why should they waste time helping people who are not serious and or do you help them grow and improve as a company. If I was a Sony shareholder I would be happy they rejected you.

.... And this isn't their first attempt at af either

Who cares, it's 14mm. Nobody is expecting tremendous speed. As long as it's accurate (and the prototypes are) all is fine.

No need to be negative.

Gesture: Expose for the shadows, develop for the highlights. We seem to need to flip that around in the digital era.

Good solid product from Pentax.

that's about the stupidest thing I have read on dpreview: " unpleasant aesthetics for a whipped cream topping"

Dont troll. If you don't like Sony move on.

adventure_photo: Thanks Sony! Keep the firmware updates coming! Feel free to give us new functionality and other improvements also. Fuji understands the value in this better than all camera brands. It instills confidence and builds loyalty. Also, wondering if we could do firmware updates like the big boys by copying to a memory card and running from the card? The current process of being tethered via USB cable and having to use a computer is not that great and it also takes way too long. Oh, one last thing, can we get the firmware updates for all current cameras so they are all on ver 3.3 with firmware? With all current features for all cameras if the hardware allows? And consistency between camera menus too would be great. Or maybe fresh new better menus altogether? I don't hate them currently but they could be improved. Now get to work! And thank you!

have fun with that.

On article Corel PaintShop Pro X9 arrives with improved workflow (45 comments in total)
In reply to:

Prognathous: I'm still (happily) using PSP X7 and will likely skip X9 (just like I did X8), as I don't find features that make much of a difference for me. Here's what I'd like to see:

- Option to automatically tag RAW and JPEG files with location names (based on GPS coordinates embedded in my Sony A77 files)
- 100% Photoshop plugin support
- Tool to create a sheet of passport pictures
- Option to hide all toolbars and palettes with a keyboard shortcut (like Tab in PS)

100% Photoshop plugin support? Yikes.

Nice dream.
