I've got PSM 8 or maybe it should be PMS 8. Every so often I fire it up hoping somehow it will be better. No - it still is terrible.

In fact when I use it I feel like an amateur. The mac version certainly gets no love. Color picker now shows RGB values. Get outta here! That's amazing.

They have a very jokey 'Director of Photography' dude who tries to do video demos and keeps having to go back and redo, doesn't know key-commands etc. Almost as bad as that Luminar dude.

I'm doing fine with Apple's Photos and RAW Power from the original engineer on Aperture.

On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (718 comments in total)

There's a reason why books have white and not black pages. It may be just about using less ink, but it is also much more legible when it comes to text. Reading forums just wears me out with that inverted color set-up.

As for images, I think black is too much for that too. 50% grey would be perfect.

On article Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Review (860 comments in total)
In reply to:

(unknown member): So, with this, the RX10, the A6000, and the A7 and A7R and S variants, Sony have easily the best overall range of digicams available on the market today. All in a decade from no cameras at all.

And of course without Sony there would be no Nikons either.....

This is a Leica of the old school neat fast pocketable with a separate optional viewfinder./ Looking at images from RAW here up to around 500 the grain is as good as Tri-X was and that was only monochrome.

A lot less boring than the World Cup, and fewer fouls!

Boky - what nonsense. Photographers make the image not your chosen brand of camera. And Sony have been making cameras for decades - video cameras.
