On article Google AI adds detail to low-resolution images (150 comments in total)
In reply to:

CQui: Ok, if I get it right, they feed the machine with the 8x8 thing on the left, get the 32x32 of the middle column out while a better resolution of the same pic was the right column...
How can they tell from the 8x8 the blob they start from is male of female?
How can they even guess it is a face?
Is there anyone at Google that believe this is more than just fake promotional sci-fi BS?

Basically All photo in social networks are:
Duckface
Cat face
or chew.

So AI can safely reconstruct these 3 objects from any pixel in photo with 99,99% probability.

Post any video of car crash.
(Imagine this is video)
This video is great reminder why you should not use public highways.

Focus isn't right on. And eyes too dark. Professional photojournalist would use fill flash.

Kona Mike: Wow, Adobe is grasping at new features here. When added into Photoshop, it will be a gimmicky filter that adds to the menu bloat. Most likely it will only be used by 1% of the user base.

People pay for these upgrades, every month, forever?

Someday true AI will be invented. But that mighty AI will never like play chess or transform images. Nobody knows what that AI will want to do.

krikman: It uses a predefefined base of images "to look like". The firs real and useful purpose is a general photography:
Suppose you got this software in your smartphone with 10000 covers of fashion magasines as image bank. So every face will be slightly transformed to look more like a popular model.

It is total win, you just can't make an ugly photo of people!

Just load your image in databank, and all people will look as you. :)

Why not?

If Nikon copes with AF illness of their 55-x00 zooms, and holds IQ at least as 55-200VR I, it would be winnning occassionally telephoto zoom.

krikman: Why not just publish original images instead of computer simulated model?

I've found answer. There was too much small pictures in original.

On article Primer: What is VR, and why should photographers care? (141 comments in total)

How do we, photographers, will sell these VR things?
Basically, they are just huge scanned massives of data for calculations. No photo work.

VR requirements is similar to scanning archieves in public libraries - hardly a piece or interest for photographer.

krikman: ... And grip made for minimise stability while shooting. Good work, Sigma!

Sigma is well knowed for making stupid decisions for otherwise perfect cameras.

It is destiny. No cure will help.

Read carefully before writing something angry.

In reply to:

Boomanbb: With everyone complaining about anything Adobe, how the heck do they stay in business? Oh, yeah... Best editing tools out there.

Adobe took from RawShooter not basic conversion engine (it was ACR 2003, long before RSP), but interface and workflow. And now it is still here - The only difference in ALR 6.4 interface compared to RawShooter Pro (2006) is that photo stripe placed under photo window, while in RSP it was above main window by default.

In reply to:

AD in KC: All this talk about Nikon! Nikon, Nikon, Nikon! Did nobody see the Canon announcement today and I quote: "We're working on something really REALLY awesome! It's going to be SO cool!"

Now THAT'S news!

Ha-ha! Canon will try to catch-up Nikon.

They just combined every swich and dial from present DSLRs and compacts. Seems testing wasn't done yet. It is still 'concept', not even 'prototype'.

Q: How do you manage problem A?
A: We don't see A is a problem. But we do not deny that in future we may make products without A problem.
Q: Do you plan to make product B?
A: We don't see any demand in product B. But sometime in future (maybe weeks, maybe decades) when we make product B we'll see huge demand for it.
