On article Two photographers re-imagine city potholes (147 comments in total)
In reply to:

Phil: Or they could have just patched a pothole or two.

Because that's what photographers know how to patch pot holes. Photographers taking pictures on the other hand...that's jus strange right?

Boerseuntjie: Depending on price this would be a game changer for the Chicago Tribune Iphone photographers ;)

justmeMN: A new low - DPR repeating sonyalpharumorscom rumor and speculation.

It is speculation but the photos neither prove nor disprove the truth about the rumor. Many OEM product shots are photoshopped or even rendered in 3D, does that mean the product does not exist? Your jab about photoshop is irrelevant.

jon404: Great. Just what we need... a new technology allowing even-smaller viewfinders. Hey, camera makers! We baby boomers, the only segment left with some savings, have poor eyesight! All the pixels in the world can't help if the display device is physically very small...

Yikes...I wonder how much more power this thing will consume, refreshing at 120hz and using LCD not OLED panels.

Camediadude: The stupidity of humans ... it never ends.

Actually it's not a fallacy of relevance. The poster above completely undermined your authority with regards to stupidity, hence any comment you make about another persons stupidity is absurd.

Wow, that a story. There seems to be more and more success stories that start from doing personal work.

This is so stupid, the point of a tablet is portability. 20" and a 2 hour battery life is any BUT portable.

LOL I think the MIT guys need to redefine what they mean by "professional" looking images. To be more specific they should explain they are trying to improve the image quality from mobile sensors, that alone does not constitute what the general description of a "professional" image really.
I'm disappointed guys that are scientifically inclined and used to being precise and accurate, are so blatantly misusing descriptions to get notice for this development.
It's like watching Superman pick a half eaten burger out of a trash "dude" c'mon have a little self respect.

On article Would you buy an Android camera phone for $10,000? (8 comments in total)

I don't think this phone is catering to tech heads. If it was the 4.0 OS, small screen and lack of 4G will put techies off. As a status symbol it might sell but not to anyone that cares about function or advanced features.

On article App tutorial: Give portraits depth with HDR feel (38 comments in total)
In reply to:

villebon: Wow.! Blown highlights and an unsharp image probably due to poor focusing. No wonder you need HDR to rescue it.

The delete key is your friend. Use it.

Seriously, this tutorial is horribly mis-titled. You can't give depth by playing with curves, it has to be captured in the initial image. A black shadow is a black shadow and blown highlights are blown, period.
This example especially talking about more depth, there was way more tonal and dynamic range in the original image. The new one looks like it was shot on 3200 ASA Illford film, them smudged with ink.

On article Just Posted: Sony Alpha SLT-A99 review (499 comments in total)
In reply to:

(unknown member): Just used the a99 for a three day conference here in Austin. The EVF was perfect for "pre-chimping" in mixed lighting for stage shots, etc. The 3200 and 6400 were very clean and the body and controls felt just right in my medium sized hands. I think it's a remarkably good camera for any professional who does not shoot fast moving sports stuff. Don't underestimate the appeal to working professionals of the EVF. It's a great addition for me. And the front dial on the camera, set to exposure compensation, means you never have to take your finger off the shutter to mess with EC when actively shooting speeches, etc.

Bonus, the EVF is much better than OVF under very low light.

Thing I thought I would never used that came in handy? The Smart Teleconverter.

I think DP Review's rating is just right. You buy this camera for the sensor and the EVF. If you are dropping $3000 you know why your are buying it and those features outweigh all the anti-fanboy rhetoric.

Me think's it's Barry's bubble that needs to burst, for his sake. To him we might be nuts but when he stands alone, who really is the outsider?

Reg Natarajan: Terrible change, and I type that sitting in my office in Vancouver. Copyright law and patent law are destroying innovation, exactly the opposite of what they were intended to do. Before copyright law, we had Beethoven, Bach and Mozart. Since copyright law, we have Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne and Nelly Furtado, and it's not lost on me that the latter three are all Canadian. This is an improvement?

That's a completely unfair comparison and you know it.

On article iPhone 5 vs. iPhone 4S: Image comparison (94 comments in total)

Seems to be more DR with the iPhone 5. In any case it's not a step down and I was impressed with the 4's camera before especially with HDR.
