I think this will be a good time saver once its matured, but as with the Content Aware tool demos, the images shown all seem thave been taken to help with showing this effect. Narrow DOF and good contrast. These would probably be easy to make using the existing tools.
Still, it shows that Adobe are still pushing ahead, and not just taking our money (which I have no issue paying, as its a service and not just a program) and stagnating.
IMO with cheaper programs like Afinity and Luminar showing a very mature set of tools at a much lower price Adobe has to keep pushing ahead.

I think this has been released to help all those people who want to leave Adobe and go elsewhere. Makes it so much easier to get all your photos back to your computer so you can close your account.

I’m on my 4th Slide, two first gen and two Summit editions. All suffer from slippage when used with a descent sized camera and lens and worn across the body. Within 15mins the straps will be at full length, no matter what length i have them set at. There is absolutely no momvnet when pulling on the strap, its due to body movement.
PD has said its a feature. I thinks its design deficiency.

PD has been amazing getting replacements to me, that’s why i have 4, but great CS doesn’t mean great product. Still, its th only strap i use so i live with it. It does have lots of plus points as well.

Wow, harsh crowd as usual. Ok, this is nothing really special compared to what’s coming out of Hollywood etc, but it does beat 99% of the other cameraphone videos ive seen, and can show that these things do produce the goods, providing you make the effort.

Ive got the above set up as well, for Canon, and love it other than the mentioned close range issue. Very frustrating when doing macro.
There is a way of turning the XT1 on that allows closer shooting though, you have to hold down a button IIR. Its in the manual. Doesn't make a huge difference but it does help.

kikiriki: But why and how when iPad doesn't have proper file system???
ohh, wait it will have it from this autumn.. :)

USB3 is very fast on the iPad Pro, I'm not sure why you think its too slow.

Why are people moaning about not getting all the new features that have been rumoured (key word there). If anyone actualy read the rumours properly its always stated there will be a minor update first, and then the big one.

dave_bass5: What a pointless article, only of intrest to those who can't sleep at night because they have been pixel peeping al day.
Real photographers just get on with it and use what they want, not what they are told they should be using just because one man says he thinks they are eating.

Oops, typo at the end obviously.

Quite like the idea of this but until there is a native iPad version ill stick to my own method.
It's a shame in this day and age we cant get something that just works on the intended OS without needing different versions for different devices.

At least its free though.....for now.

On article Canon EOS 80D Field Test: Barney builds a boat (221 comments in total)

Barney, I enjoyed the video. I'm sure you've heard it millions of times before but you are the spitting image of Jack Whitehall....only less funny ;-).
The video is what it is, using it in the real world. I can't see why some are complaining it wasn't a side by side comparison video, it's was never advertised as that.

On article Recipe for 6S: iPhone 6S Real-world Sample Gallery (122 comments in total)

Has uploading these images destroyed them in some way? On my iPad (yes, also have issues viewing them) they look very low res.
As a 6S owner I don't think these are displaying properly, unless they are heavy crops as my shots seem much sharper and clearer.
The quickly in no way matches my a6000 (or 5Dmkiii) but it's a big step up from my old 5S and I have started to use a camera phone more since getting it.

I don't believe Apple left anything out on purpose with the 6, it's just that the tech wasn't ready in the first place . This is called evolution or progress, we can't stop it, nor can we rush it.

On article Canon EOS M3 real-world samples (147 comments in total)

Isnt it great how DPReview only bother with this camera because the USA are getting it. Didnt matter that Europe already had it, so much for a world wide community on here.
Whats the point of posting poor real world samples (see, the word "world" is used but apparently this doesn't mean there is life outside of the USA).
There are loads of images posted all over the net by real photographers already.
Must be a slow news week.

Can't see the point of this really.
Why not compare what modern tech can do?
Show people how well (or not) a modern DSLR stacks up against a modern smartphone.
No one buys those old DSLRS anyway, so what relevance does it have.?
Slow news day by the looks of it.

Can't see it being any better than what's already available.
What about people with smaller eyes, or those whith more slit like eyes that are in the shadows, and best not have your blind mate in the shot either ;-).
Then there is the time it will take to get the shot. If it's a fairly large group some might get bored waiting.

Good idea but in reality just another gimmick in my opinion.

Laughable. They seem to have broken my uploads to Flcikr, even though this was one of the things the release notes say was fixed (and mine wasn't broken anyway).

On article Adobe releases Camera Raw 8.2 and Lightroom 5.2 (70 comments in total)

Still got bugs in the publish module. Can't see any difference between this version and the RC version, other than new camera support.
