afm: This software will not open on any of my Windows 10 computers. Got the previous version to work but only after a 120 second startup time! Am I missing something here?

Evidently, yes.

It works for me on three Win10 x64 and one Linux computers.

jkrumm: Do any of you Raw Therapee users know the easy way to darken a blue sky when converting to a black and white?

Plenty of possibilities :)

skanter: Will it do anything significantly better than LR?

I tried all known commercial and free raw converters (thanks to trial verion). Among all of them RT5 and Darktable are the best in terms of demosaicing algorithms and features.

cantanima bis: I'm curious about selective editing; i.e., selecting a region so that changes apply only to that region. It's not in RT 4.x (which I use routinely) and I don't see it listed above. Various versions of it are in pretty much every other software I've used, though (certainly CO, LR, DT, LZ) and I'd find it very useful. Is that contemplated in RT at any point in the future?

There is a fork of RT with local LAB adjustments - I tested it and it worked. However, it is too far from being fully useful. Anyway, the developers promise that in future, maybe in RT6.

It is a great pleasure to see the RT-related news here at DPR.

Autoportraits are far better than selfies.

On article DPReview Asks: What was your first camera? (765 comments in total)

The very first my OWN camera back in 1988 was Agat-18k - small Russian APS camera equipped with Industar-104 lens (28mm/2.8) and able to make 72 photos on a standard 35mm film.

My first digital was pocket Minolta Dimage X21, I still remember its specs - 2 Mp, 37-111mm eq. lens. Used it with 128-Mb MMC card.

Hugo808: Good idea, how about a Lego version so you can stick spare lenses and things to it?

Leica is only for serious adult people, so I would suggest Picatinny rails instead of Lego.

Virtually the same IQ as from any other crop 24 Mp camera. Stagnation...

For this price Leica should be single-use

stanislaff: I use my Samsung 12-24/ 4-5.6 (18-36 mm in 35 mm equivalent) lens for landscape photo. Yes, it is way slower, but my landscapes and architecture won't run away from me and I got my lens for $260 including delivery and customs taxes.

Who needs such an expensive prime lens?

18-36 mm is not the same as 24-64 mm

Mine are a bit cheaper :)

On article Upwardly mobile: Sony a6300 Review (2159 comments in total)

According to studio samples a6300 is on par with my Samsung NX30 up to iso1600, at higher iso sony is better. However, the colors of Samsung are bit better - more saturated (I always compare only RAW).

On article Flickr makes Auto-Uploadr tool a Pro-account exclusive (97 comments in total)
In reply to:

photoshack: I have it, have had Pro before, and don't know any actual Pros that use it. The uploader is annoying as it is trying to suck up any card or device it sees...not my style.

Totally agree! I tried once that silly uploader, when it was free, but didn't liked it at all. The upload via web page is way better for me.

When the sun shine
We’ll shine together
Told you I’ll be here forever
Said I’ll always be your friend
Took an oath I’ma stick it out till the end
Now that it’s raining more than ever
Know that we’ll still have each other

You can stand under my Ambarella

On article Flickr brings back Pro account option (74 comments in total)
In reply to:

ManuelVilardeMacedo: It appears regular users won't get unlimited storage anymore. And they'll get ads. Which is a cunning way of getting people into subscribing Pro accounts. Oh well.
On the other hand, subscribers who had Pro accounts before Flickr gave unlimited storage were basically paying to get the same as those who had free accounts, which was not right. As the old saying goes, two wrongs don't make a right.
The benefits of being a Pro user are now: 1) unlimited storage; 2) highly fastidious stats (irrelevant); 3) free shipping on Flickr photo merchandising (US only: can't be bothered); 4) ad-free viewing (which is good: ads can be annoying); 5) 20% discount on Adobe CC (meh!); and 6) the subscription fee will remain unchanged for two years (I assume it will double after that period). Better start thinking about a website; chances are it'll be less expensive...

I am at tremendous 1.2% right now.
