Use Isolite with a Lytro camera and you can change the lighting AND focus after the shoot.

In the beginning people would say, “Fix it in Photoshop.”
Now we’re at, “Fix it in Photoshop, Lytro, and Isolite.”

All this adjusting after the fact makes my head spin. I’m used to getting it as right as possible in-camera, and I kinda feel all these options for post production just add to more hours at the computer.

Well this is either going to crash & burn, or this guy will get rich. Only B&W images... hmmm...

mristuccia: Fresh food for hipsters. Expect lots of Instagram shots of this camera on a table together with a cup of espresso and a paper notebook alongside. The posted text would be something like "Enjoying breakfast and exploring the world. #mypersonalworld #analoginspiration #worldtraveller" :D

@mristuccia - not just a paper notebook, a Moleskine notebook & with a freshly sharpened wood pencil.

Gmon750: I'm actually surprised they made as much as they reported. It's still a $1.5B company.

So sad. They are a prime example (just like Blackberry) that missed the most biggest boat ever and ignorance became their downfall.

@ZeBebito - Kodak did everything it could to protect it's cash cow - film sales - instead of moving ahead with digital. They made the first digital camera in 1975, but did nothing with the tech.

Don Strickland, a former vice-president, who left the company in 1993 because even then he couldn't persuade it to manufacture and market a digital camera, put it this way: "We developed the world's first consumer digital camera but we could not get approval to launch or sell it because of fear of the effects on the film market."

Are all those non-destructive edits saved in XMP sidecar files? Does it offer batch processing? Hmmm I might have to try the free trial...

D200_4me: If anyone is going to switch away from LR, what they also need is an option to import all the edits that were already made to the photos in LR. Otherwise you have thousands of photos that are no longer edited. That's the biggest hindrance to switching to something other than LR.

Just have Lightroom write XMP sidecar files for each photo. I do this as a matter of course so if I open a photo in Photoshop, Bridge, or anything else that recognizes XMP all my changes to exposure, white balance, etc. are there.

Some variety of examples in the video would have been nice. It's the same night shot for the whole 2:46...

Alexandre Racine photographer: Hey @Richard , you forgot to add something to this line:

"($399 for the grip, around $149 for the battery)."

and add 350$+ for the charger of the battery ;)

@Dante Birchen

From nikonusa.com:
“The MB-D18 Multi Battery Power Pack can be powered either by six AA batteries (Alkaline or Ni-MH or Lithium), EN-EL15 or EN-EL18b rechargeable Li-ion batteries. To use the MB-D18 with AA batteries, use the MS-D12 AA Battery Holder. When using EN-EL15 batteries to power the MB-D18, use the MS-D12EN Battery Holder. When using an EN-EL18b battery to power the MB-D18, use the BL-5 battery chamber cover.”

You don’t have to use the crazy expensive battery unless you must have 9FPS.

I had two D700 bodies for 8 years and about 170,000 shutter actuations each before I upgraded to the D810. The D800 wasn't fast enough for me... and I didn't have the funds at the time anyway LOL. I had a lot of fun with those D700s.

weisman: Again with the fragile springy antennas?!
It’s held by only one spot of solder, and when the solder breaks the antenna flops around.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to take my MultiMAXes apart to re-solder the damn antenna back into place... and I'm not rough on my gear. Ugh.

I was considering using hot glue... but that would be difficult to "undo" if I ever needed to get in there again. Otherwise, there's not a lot of room on the circuit board for a fastener.

Cindy Sherman, one of the most famous art photographers of all time, didn’t press the shutter button herself in many cases:

“Initially [Cindy] Sherman photographed the Film Stills in the loft apartment where she and Longo lived. She took many of the pictures herself using an extended shutter release; others, particularly those set in outdoor locations, required a second person to take the photograph, such as her boyfriend, friends or family. Sherman’s father took #48, in which she appears as a vulnerable young woman waiting with a suitcase at the side of a darkening country road.”

I betcha Ms. Sherman owns the copyright to all her images…

dash2k8: I'm curious about that solo saxophonist picture. Did the author say he used a flash? Are flashes allowed in such venues?

Yes absolutely flash is allowed during the reception/party for weddings and bar mitzvahs. I shoot 30+ events a year and use flash heavily. I bounce flash a lot as Carey's example shows, and I use 2 remote room flashes for most jobs as well.
