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? (142 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.

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.

On article Lytro plans to shed jobs as it shifts focus to video (506 comments in total)

Stop laugh at current photo capabilites of Lytro products. They're full of flaws and noone ever take their still cameras seriously.
Target is virtual reality, so photo and video are just logical steps to establish solid technology basis for virtual reality applications.

I know the secret.

SONY got access to ultimate bending machine (Heil Futurama!).
Their engineers begun with a sensor. But tomorrow SONY can bend anything with NEW ULTIMATE BENDING MACHINE. Curved cars, curved planes, curved pets an finally a curved human. The curved future is coming. Be curved or die.
