LJohnK2: What speed problem ?....I have a moderately spec'd system and find it very responsive....I only work with stills and no batch processing.....I've used lots of different software and speed is nowhere on the list of my LR gripes and I sure have some.....?

So... this doesn't apply to you. Personally I do heaps of batch processing and have a highly specced system that can't do more than two LR batch processes at a time.

wildbild: couldn't a machine do that?
why even have a photographer in the equation?
so unnecessarily complicated

And considering that with a fixed setup you could use 3 point lighting for a FAR superior effect.

Weerterbos: Euhm.
Isn't it 88 masterly lit photos?
http://www.photographyblog.com/news/speed_shooting_sunbounce_sets_a_world_record/ near bottom of page there.
"Since the Berlin photographer is familiar with the SUNBOUNCE products, we collaborated and came up with a simple solution using the BOUNCE-WALL. SUNBOUNCE accompanied Linda to an outdoor shooting and documented how she used the “mobile portrait studio” to take pictures of 88 guests in exactly 9 minutes and 16 seconds. Each guest was photographed in the same style, with the same lighting. “I took only one or two pictures of most of the people. "

Bottom of this page : http://shop.sunbounce.com/en/87-bounce-wall

I've done something similar with an Alzo flip flash. I mounted an umbrella on the arm and raised it quite high. You can easily get very soft butterfly lighting. I sure as hell got better results than this 'tog.

Peiasdf: You know what country do not have vandals and "graffiti artist"? Singapore The day you start enforcing laws is the day people start respecting them.

You can't regulate stupidity - it excludes the rational decision making process. Singapore DOES have vandalism and graffiti, just not a lot.

rwbaron: Nice for travel snapshots but I don't want my photos to look like everyone else's.

Right?! This is a guide for bad togs, the one's that take the photo and not make the photo. Anyone can capture beauty that's already there - I think I'd prefer to go searching for it.

JaredTarzan: What is the benefit to shooting DNG vs Canon's own raw format?

Space, range of editing software, future-proofing...

jaykumarr: Could someone please help me:
What are the top features that Magic Lantern provide that are absent/incomplete in
(1) Latest consumer level Nikon SLRs
(2) Latest consumer level Canon SLRs
Are those missing features present in their remote controllers?

You might be missing the point - you can take a camera that is two years old, substantially cheaper, and get the same functionality as those brand new cameras.

A good example would be the 50D. With magic lantern it you can record high quality and RAW video.

I also believe that dual ISO is not available outside MaagicLantern.

Finally, where do you think these companies are getting their ideas?

DamianFI: Pardon me, but what's the point of capturing, in camera, in the DNG format?

Smaller file size, faster conversion later, a format that doesn't change every time a new camera is released, greater range of editing options....

In reply to:

ProfHankD: "... that has appeared on the company's forums" -- since when is Magic Lantern a company? It is an independent project developing software to enhance the operation of various Canon EOS cameras, rather like CHDK. Producing DNGs in camera is insignificant (and doesn't make much sense) compared to all the major enhancements in ML.

It makes perfect sense. The CR2 format regularly changes, the DNG format is fixed. The files are usually smaller too. There are plenty of articles describing the advantages of both formats and some people would like the choice.

sportyaccordy: Their 35 & 50 leave a lot to be desired. A LOT!!!!

Yongnuo needs to update these designs with modern tolerances, quality control, coatings and performance. Their current offerings would have been written off as cheap crap 25 years ago so you can only imagine how they do on modern sensors today. Step it up Yongnuo!

@sportyaccordy - did you even bother to click and read those links? I'm a professional and after reading those even I'm considering buying one. Face the facts, just because you're elitist, doesn't mean you're right.

@sportyaccordy If people weren't content with crap lenses then why are the majority of lenses bundles with camera's rubbish? The majority of people aren't professionals. They don't need tack sharp focus. This will appeal to the same people who buy a 50mm/1.8 over a 50mm/1.2. People who dabble. They want a prime but aren't going to spend a fortune. For those people 100mm is a nice portrait lens and f/2 is heaps of OOF.

@sportyaccordy There are plenty of lenses with terrible optics that are worth making, Try the lens in every hone on the market. Try the lomography market. The lens in my Holga isn't worth a damn, but I've taken some truely amazing photos with that camera. You can even buy fixed aperture Holga lenses for your shiny Canon 5DmkIV.

Why? They're not trying to sell high end lenses. They're trying to sell to people who have $5000 and want a 100/2 lens. Not everyone needs, wants, or can afford L glass. This is for them.

Ignat Solovey: The only alternative to Photoshop is Photoshop. Period.

Yep - try and use a propriety color system in any other software - a lot of the cost is just licensing.

In reply to:

AkashRana: Not sure how much of an improvement this is over the last version as after using X8 and photoshop side by side, I am far from impressed

That's a pretty crap comparison. A better comparison would be to compare X8 to Photoshop Elements - a product it actually competes with.

Try this though - do a one click photo fix in X8 and compare it to a Ctrl+U in Photoshop Lightroom. I think you'll find that X8's auto photo fixing is significantly better than Photoshop Lightroom's.
