On article Vimeo adds support for 8K 10-bit HDR videos (37 comments in total)
In reply to:

Life recorder: ....and the gear heads here will rave about how awesome that 8k video looks on their 2.5K and 4k monitors. Forget the content... You must zoom in to 100% to fully appreciate video (and stills)!

@panther fan

I never said that. They can push the envelope as much as they like, the few people with capable displays will benefit from that.

At every given moment in time _and_ for every given person there is a sweetspot.

Moreover, at every given moment in time there is mainstream tech, and there is cutting-edge tech, which tends to be intrinsically inconvenient, and disproportionately expensive.

8K is not convenient, is not cheap, and is definitely not my quality/cost/space efficiency sweetspot.
It's there, nonetheless.

Bobthearch: "Dear Man and Lady,
We are sorry but due to unforeseen circumstances we are unable to deliver your images as promised. Attached is a zip file of all the images submitted to us from your event and a refund check."

How hard is that? Why do some people insist on being thieving scammers?

Because they like money more than reputation and integrity?

On article Sigma's new 16mm F1.4 will cost $450, ships this month (359 comments in total)

I agree with the comments below... that isn't expensive at all...

Nice for those who can use it (even though it's kinda two different lenses based on crop... I'd personally like something like this on APS-C more than on m4/3, just based on personal taste).

I don't care much... I use Pentax but I'm not _married_ to it...

As long as someone will provide adapters, possibly with a functioning aperture controls and maybe AF, I don't care much.

What I would like to find and have is civil conversation about photographic gear & news (for actual pictures I already go elsewhere), not brainless bashing and witty not-so-repressed aggressivity.

It looks like a very nice camera.

If Pentax (and by that I mean essentially K-mount) is shut down by Ricoh (Heavens forbid), one of these (whatever the number, whatever the letter, whatever the mark) might be an interesting alternative.

sankos: Allison, free Nik "for now", or maybe "indefinitely" (that's got to be the word of the month)?

"indefinitely" sits between "for now" and "forever"...

LensBeginner: Serious: is there a Windows (so no darktable:( ) open-source (photo-only or photo-oriented is ok) DAM-only (no need to develop with it) out there?
I tried RawTherapee but it doesn't support the creation of collections/albums.

Thanks to both, however it's proprietary, not OS.

steelhead3: Hey there handsome, what do you have in that pocket? Sorry couldn't resist...I could think of nothing more uncomfortable than a weighted down rain jacket.

...is that a 70-200/2.8 in your pocket or are you just happy to see me? XD

"may not have", "likely", "Maybe", "likely", "do you really think Adobe would", "don't think so", "much more likely", "just my opinion", "would almost undoubtedly", "I can't see Adobe offering no option"...

This is the basis on which to build a long-term plan.
Yup, trust Adobe and everything will be fine... :-|

I said I felt that the subscription model "runs counter to the longevity benefit of building a database around my images"

You don't say? :-P

On article What you need to know: Canon G1 X Mark III (416 comments in total)

It looks like a swell camera, with big enough sensor and reasonable zoom range (no 10-1000 nonsense)... to bad the price is a wee bit too high for my liking :P

In reply to:

AKH: The PT Cruiser should have been designed by Italians. It is one of the worst designs I have ever seen. But I sort of understand and agree with you on the camera. On the other hand why not let people do whatever they want?

Ouch! we see plenty of those here! XDXD
OTOH it was displayed at the MoMA... so bad taste on the part of the Americans too! :D

I would tolerate that silly wrinkle above the hood, problem with that car is that it was terrible unreliable (like most FIATs anyway).

Sorry, misunderstood your comment.
Yes, you're right,
