errebe: Magic brush is a toy for amateur photographers. Regarding the export tool, is one of the biggest failures by Capture One. The reason why they deleted the previous tool that was working so perfectly for this (you put the word), is a total mistery.
I recommend to Capture One users not to upgrade to this version.
For interesting comments and full vision of this enormous failure just check:

I saw the press release(s) on magic brush and my first thought was that it is just a variation on using the Color tool to select all of a certain color in the image. I've heard it's a bit more than that but it hardly seems, to me anyway, to be a great feature in a full (as opposed to minor) release.

Nicolas Det "feels like no one tested it".

I've felt this way about Capture One since the first version I used, v10. Like so many companies these days, I think the end user is C1's QA team. We debug it, report the bugs, and then they do nothing. Cranking out new releases and trying to expand market share seems to be their priority. I was a software developer for many years and every new release since v10 has struck me as a minor release, hardly worth several hundred dollars. I feel like we're still on v10.4 instead of v21.

It seems like Magic Brush is just tweaks of creating a mask by color. Am I missing something?

On article Phase One Capture One 20 software review (418 comments in total)

I'm using C1 v11 on a PC with a 7200RPM internal HDD. I also have an old version of LR standalone (v6.13). My catalog in C1 is around 17k photos, while my catalog in LR is quite a bit larger.

If I select "All Photographs" in LR, I don't have to wait for them to load - they're there as soon as I click on that. I can immediately search my entire catalog for any photo using the name, keywords, etc. and I get immediate results - instant.

In C1, I select "All Images" and it starts loading all images. I can watch the counter showing "1 of <some number>" images as they load. I cannot search the catalog yet - not all images are loaded and the search will fail if the image you're searching for is not yet loaded. I have to wait about three and a half minutes before it has loaded all of my images.

A C1 search of my catalog can take a very long time - as long as 15 or 20 minutes sometimes. Their catalog is just incredibly ancient, primitive, and SLOWWWWW. I wish for the performance of LR!

On article Phase One Capture One 20 software review (418 comments in total)

Capture One DAM is very poor. I can search my 20k image Lightroom catalog for any image and tit finds it instantly. The same search with my Capture One catalog of the same size takes tens of minutes. Searches sometimes fail to find an image that I know is there and I have had many crashes and lock-ups using searches. If you search the internet you'll see that catalog performance has been terrible for many years and Phase One has done seemingly nothing about it.

I moved from LR to C1 a few years ago and imported ~20K images from my LR catalog into C1 and it was a nightmare that took several months. When I finished the import C1 had created a variant/virtual copy for every single imported image. The import kept crashing too.

Problem is the sky.

Can anybody help, any ideas?

The Flicker photo you referenced is marked as private so no one can see it.

timoteotresgatos: This camera is not and will not be dust proof, according to Panasonic:

"[While the new design of the DC-LX100M2 ***might*** have been improved, we make no claims that it is weather sealed or dust proof on our website. Therefore we cannot guarantee that it is dust proof. If that is a concern of yours I suggest you look at our weather sealed cameras like the DMC-FZ300K, DMC-G85MK, DMC-GX8 or our professional grade cameras like the DMC-GH4, DC-GH5/5s". (Asterisks added by me for emphasis).

It seems that the comments Panasonic made for this article is b.s. Panasonic support's comment makes clear that dust will still accumulate on the sensor.

Too bad. It could have been a nice travel camera but Panasonic is choosing not to address the dust issue.

Why do you consider my experience with the D-Lux4 immaterial? Same basic design as the LX-100 cameras.

I have not seen any dust complaints in any of the reviews I've read about the RX 100 series cameras and they have a zoom similar to the LX-100 cameras.

I have a D-lux4/LX-3 that I have owned for many years now. It is very similar (in overall design) to the LX-100 II
. I have used it under all sorts of conditions and it Is almost always in my jeans' pocket when I'm carrying it. I have never see any signs of sensor dust in my images.

I have read a number of user comments on the internet in which people say they're returned the camera because of a serious sensor dust problem. Personally I, haven't seen any such comments on the LX-3/D-LUX4.

I don't know what to make of all this. I want a compact travel camera with good image quality and raw dynamic range and thought this was it until all the dust hullabaloo.

The Sony Rx-100 series cameras are similar compact zoom cameras and I've never read anything about sensor dust with them.

On article Hello Lightroom CC: Embracing the future (504 comments in total)

IF, at some point, all of my photos must be stored in the cloud by Adobe in order to be managed/edited by LR, then Adobe effectively OWNS my photos. They set the rules for their cloud storage and how they use it. Need more than 500GB of storage? No problem. Just pay Adobe another, say, $50 a year for up to 2TB of storage. Suppose Adobe updates it terms of use and says that now they can use your photos however they wish for advertising purposes. You abide by their rules or lose access to LR and your photos in the cloud.

Suppose Adobe decides that you must allow them to share your photos with, say, Flickr, or 500px, or similar photo sharing site? You either opt-in or you can no longer use LR.

Suppose Adobe decides to change their subscription model such that if you let your subscription lapse, you must pay for the years you let the subscription lapse before you can start using LR CC again. I have seen this before.

I prefer to keep full ownership and control of my photos.

Everyone seems to think they'll hear a train coming and have time to get off the tracks but it isn't always so. I was in a city one day taking pictures of graffiti on train cars in an idling train. The engine was not in sight. I was not at a crossing, there was no fence, etc. There were two sets of tracks at this location about threw feet apart and I was standing between the sets of tracks taking my pictures. I heard nothing only the sounds of the distant engine idling. Suddenly, without any warning, a train on the OTHER tracks came out of seemingly nowhere at probably 60mph (or so it seemed anyway). I didn't have time to jump, move, or even think it was on me so fast. It went blasting by behind me. I wasn't hurt but boy it scared the s**t out of me!! Who would ever have thought that a zillion tons of steel could sneak up on you like that! The engineer probably never even saw me next to the tracks. He never blew his horn.

So now I no longer play photographer near trains. If I want photos of a train I'll use my telephoto from far away from the tracks.
