Could the new owner please resume the development of Flickr? It seems to have come to a complete halt.

On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (722 comments in total)
In reply to:

WGVanDyck: This is essentially a photo and image site and I find dark grey to black backgrounds work best for that type of content. One of the reasons I like DPR over that other site.

Really wonder where this idea comes from that photos look best on black. Some may indeed look better, but in my opinion most look best on a white background. Just look at all those portfolios of great photographers out there. I mostly see white backgrounds and photos look great on them.

Looks WAY better! Black backgrounds are so last century... :-)

Is this the reason why Flickr's revamp has come to a halt?

Thanks, it seems that Adobe outsources its customer service for the stand-alone version.

Thanks for the helpful, non-cynical answer... ;-)

Mark Alan Thomas: Not a fan of Adobe’s subscription model, but I gotta hand it to them — this is a genuinely useful addition, and a clever way to get people to subscribe.

That's what I was thinking as well. Subscription to Squarespace, Portfoliobox, etc. is around 10$/€ a month, so this option may actually be quite compelling (if I don't miss something).

If it's true that the photographer matters more than the camera, DPR better start reviewing photography courses (or offering them). ;-)

On article Otherworldly? Lomography introduces Jupiter 3+ lens (159 comments in total)

Funny to see how, among all the high-spec, latest/greatest, gear there is apparently a market for lo-fi, retro-performance, stuff. And people are actually prepared to pay for it. Gosh, we're so spoiled.

On article Here at last: Nikon announces D500 (1175 comments in total)
In reply to:

PascallacsaP: Just moved from D300 to Fujifilm X-T1. Sorry Nikon, just a bit too late, but I'm glad for all those people who have been waiting a bit longer. Looks great and nobody (even Nikon Rumors and Thom Hogan) saw this one coming it seems.

Well, be happy with the D750, I would say. I have hold it in my hand in a shop and it feels great and reasonably compact. I have considered buying one, but in the end I opted for the compactness of the Fuji. However, sometimes I would love to play with the shallow DOF of a FF, especially with portraits at wide angle (24/35mm) and I would surely enjoy the rapid AF of the Nikon, the only two things that I really miss in my X-T1. I would definitely also go for the great Sigma glass that is currently offered (especially 24 and 35mm f/1.4).

Thanks, no regrets regarding the X-T1, especially because I concentrate on landscapes, portraits, and street. The D500 seems to more designed for action and wildlife.

In reply to:

Thomas Traub: Aparture of 1.2 does not make sense in portrait-photography, because you get hardly both eyes sharp, if one eye is only 2 cm behind the other .. even with my 85/1,8 on my D610 the faces have to be parallel to the camera (although you get a great bokeh)

Nikon compared to Fuji:

D 7200 + 50/1,4 = 1.045 g weight and 1.264 €
Xt1 + 56/1,2 = 845 g weight and 2.198 €

even with the 58/1,4 the 7200 is only slightly heavyer and cheaper than the Fuji-combo.

And Fuji does not have the advanced-light-system.
Nikon has much more lenses, accessories and flashes....

The Xt1/10 are nice cameras but the equipment is not as lightweight as the difference of the weight of the bodies make believe.

If Fuji would offer cheap lenses with 1,8 (as Nikon does) the whole equipment would be much cheaper and lighter and than they would have an advantage in price and weight.

But with the very expensive and heavy lenses Fuji is no option for me.

But I'll keep it in my eye :-)

Is there a rule requiring both eyes to be sharp?

Photo of the man with the hat (the one with the shadow on the face) is brilliant!

Not sure whether zen has anything to do with it, but I like the pictures.

On article Adobe issues Lightroom 6.2 apology and update (230 comments in total)
In reply to:

PascallacsaP: Just made a full switch from Aperture to Lightroom 6, have more or less mastered the not so intuitive user interface of LR, and now this... Doesn't feel good. Glad I'm not an early adopter. Will definitely stay with 6.1 for the time being. And will definitely look around for sensible alternatives again...

You make me enthusiastic! :-) Phase One should hire you as a salesman... ;-)
