On article Grab a free copy of DxO OpticsPro 9 while you can (186 comments in total)

Yeah, screw them for giving away for free perfectly capable software that is not the latest version! Now those who don't need or want or can't afford to constantly upgrade to the latest cameras and who still use sh*tty, pre-historic, now useless models like the A6000 don't even have to pay for the software! Who do they think they are, charging $0 for not forcing anyone to download? What an outrage. Boo, DXO, boo.

Having a reputation to maintain as being the one who always gives tasteful and useful gifts, I'm ordering seven for friends and family as we speak.

On article Fotodiox LED100WB-56 quick review (56 comments in total)
In reply to:

Battersea: A review with no mention of cost? Nice review except for leaving out just about everyone's main concern.

Also, the 2nd paragraph begins with: "The lights are sold as single units for $299, and as a 3-light kit for $999."

(Maybe they have updated the article because people complained about the lacking price info.)

On article Narrative will stop selling its life-logging cameras (49 comments in total)
In reply to:

bullfinchphoto: It's in high demand and they decided to shut it down. I'm the only person that think it's irrational? I would love to have it, during travels or other adventures.

It's in hight demand? I have no idea, but according to this article, it's not ("failed to appeal to consumers in any large way").

On article Still solid: Fujifilm X-E2S Review (239 comments in total)
In reply to:

tommmee: Understand all comments about this unecessary upgrade but confused about the scoring. Does the older e2 really outperform the upgrade?

The E2's scoring is three years old and was relative to the market of the time.

In reply to:

Valen305: People are so used to the perspective of camera phone photos, that when you take their photo with a telephoto, they either go "wow" or "hmmm".

True.

In reply to:

Osa25: So, the best the Germans could come up with was:
"Bentley: Vorsprang durch FOTO-Teknikk"

VW, not BMW. BMW owns Rolls Royce.

He's probably alluding to the fact that Bentley has been aquired by VW in 1998.

In reply to:

tupelo: Wow !! just like my 2 dollars app from google store !

Really? There's an app that can differentiate between subject and background and add a swirl only to the latter? ^^

In reply to:

davids8560: Some people are saying a leading O/S manufacturer and maybe some government agencies are way ahead of Canon in subject tracking.

I don't think you got what he meant.

On article Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV Review (1561 comments in total)
In reply to:

ummario: I want to buy this camera, but I'm afraid Sony can release an updated camera before summer, and I do't want to buy a almost outdated camera. Does anyone knows if this will happen?

Is people happy with it?

The RX100 I was announced in June 2012.
The RX100 II was announced in June 2013.
The RX100 III was announced in June 2014.
The RX100 IV was announced in June 2015.

Just looking at this, it doesn't seem too far fetched to expect an RX100 V to be announced around June 2016.

With product cycles like these, you're almost always buying a camera that's "outdated" in a couple months. Then again, you can still buy the RX100 I new.

On article PicTricks offers cheap photo 'fixes' (22 comments in total)
In reply to:

straylightrun: How are they able to unblink a person if both their eyes are closed? Do they just photoshop a random persons open eyes in place? That's kind of unsettling.

I can only imagine that they use a different photo from a series of photos that shows the person with open eyes so they can copy and paste the eyes into an otherwise better photo.

They have an example on their website where dad is missing from a family photo and they edit him in. One would hope that they use an actual photo from the actual dad for this, too, and not a photo of some random dude.

On article Get more accurate color with camera calibration (242 comments in total)
In reply to:

Provia_fan: I see a saturation increase, which is what I would have done anyway in Photoshop if I was doing travel work, but I do understand the importance of calibration.

There's also a clearly noticeable shift in tonality from blue towards yellow.

On article Get more accurate color with camera calibration (242 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zephir 750: Honestly, can't see any difference between before and after calibration.

I would say that's almost impossible. Are you sure the mouse-over functionality works for you? (Cursor over the words "Before" and "After", not over the image itself.)

Great work. Don't mind the petty and uncalled for criticisms (the ridiculous complaint about you cropping to a format different from your camera's sensor being a prime example).
