LJ - Eljot: I have a very handy little app that is very cool for copying stuff. It is called Windows-Explorer.
Edit: There are alternatives like Nautlilus.

Nemo is a fork of Nautilus for the Cinnamon desktop environment. I don't know wich one is more popular now.

Usually I have one folder for the pictures from the camera. But yes, Windows explorer just copies data.

TheDarmok74: I don't believe it has IBIS, just not technically possible with Fuji sensor tech ;-)

I heave read long discussions about that. I remember very well the arguments that the Fuji mount were not suitable for IBIS. Well, now we know better.

entoman: Amazing! Not a single person has asked what camera was used to photograph it!

Canon 5D Mk II, EF 50mm f/1.8 with extension tubes, two flash units with colour gels

princecody: Not bad for a video centric camera. Anyone complaining about pixel size just buy a dang Hasselblad for stills and call it a day.

Well, the multiformat sensors from panasonic are the only excenption I know of either. Theoreticly a mft-cameras with other apect ratios but the same image circle could be made.
That the mount never should be used with larger sensors might be true, but despite that, JVC boult a camera with mft-mount and Super 35mm sensor.

"The name of the system stems from the size of the image sensor used in the cameras, which is commonly referred to as a 4/3" type or 4/3 type sensor. The common inch-based sizing system is derived from vacuum image-sensing video camera tubes, ... However, the standard only specifies the sensor diagonal, thus Four Thirds cameras using the standard 3:2 aspect ratio would be possible;[5] notably newer Panasonic Micro Four Thirds models even offer shooting at multiple aspect ratios while maintaining the same image diagonal. For instance, the Panasonic GH1 uses a multi-aspect sensor designed to maximize use of the image circle at 4:3, 3:2, and 16:9; each ratio having a diagonal of 22.5 mm." (wikipedia)

RadPhoto: Is this becoming like Shaving Blades?
Not only one, not only two, but you get THREE cameras!!

5 blades are pretty common these days. Lets predict the development of phone cameras on that basis!

noisephotographer: I guess they didn't choose the standard app because it's unpredictable when Apple's app switches between digital zoom/optical zoom.

And of course entirely without any additional lenses.

Helm156: Hey Adobe - how about supporting that GPU with the 1,000's of compute cores, please

But capture 1 pro benefits greatly from GPU support. They just use openCL.

In reply to:

freeAgent85: My problems with Lightroom performance were always during editing. I don't have too many concerns about importing and exporting times as I can set it and forget it, but while I'm editing, I don't have anything else to do for a second or two at a time while I wait for the UI to respond. This was true on my quad core/eight thread i7 with 16GB RAM and it was still true on my 8 core/16 thread Ryzen 7 with 32GB RAM that replaced the Intel. Since Adobe went subscription-only with the move to LR Classic, I switched over to Capture One Pro. I must say that it is much, much faster than Lightroom in all respects. Even LR with a few % performance gain is not going to close that gap.

With C1, when using my CPU for exporting, I need for 63 RAW from Sony A7II (24MP) about the same time as DPreview needed for 63 RAWs from the 20MP Pana G9, but I have only a old Core2 Q9650. With my graphics card, wich is a not so new Geforce GTX 670 with 2GB (2GB is the minimum for gpu acceleration), I need well under 3 min.
Capture 1 pro works very well with openCL.

rubank: Too bad neither Tamron nor Sigma will release these zooms for m4/3.
I have no use of this lens on my D810 but would love to have the option for my Panny G80.

To bad they do not release these zooms for Sony/Minolta A-Mount. I could use them with my Sony A7 series camera then.

monkeybrain: Never mind the PC, it's the positioning of the desk half over the corner of the wall that bothers me... And he's a designer...

I am relieved.

Anadrol: He could at least invest in 2 or 3 monitors... and while the article is interesting for newbies, don't title it as the ultimate computer...

I will never go back to only two monitors, unless there will be one that is so large it can replace at least four of them.

In reply to:

Dragonrider: A nice system, but pretty pricey for what it is. Can't see the logic in a 27" monitor when you can get an equally good 32" for equal or less. SSDs definitely help with LR, but I suspect the CPU choice may be sub optimum in a couple of years as Adobe is going to get pushed to utilize more cores efficiently.

I can't get why he has only one monitor.

In reply to:

left eye: Can apps like these do focus bracketing? ...to the extent that could be used for focus stacking.

Log minimum and maximum focus distance manually, i.e. manually focus at the front of your subject, log that setting to the app, manually focus the back of your subject, log that to the app, then the app works out a definable number of focus increments and shots between. Otherwise a definable number of increments either side of the current focus.

I'd pay $30 for that.

Make it for Desktop OSs too please! (linux, windows)

And so do their grips for the other A7 series cameras.

steelhead3: One request for Dpreview...would you include a picture of camera and lens that shoot the sample images.

So says the info at the side.
