TwoMetreBill: If one has Lightroom to edit the image then the image can be opened in Lightroom and the edits checked. This has got to be one of the most useless pieces of software ever.

...so it's main use should not be your pictures but other's? yeah, that's the gist of it! :-P

Gatoraied: Samsung hardly needs to sell cameras and despite the S7 disaster 2016 revenue was $174,000,000,000.00! The gross revenue this company made in total camera sales was less than 1/4 what they wrote off on the S7. With over 27 subsidiaries and many of them much larger than any camera company, camera sales are not necessary. Samsung has known that stand alone cameras will soon be relegated to the same status as film cameras did not long ago. In public 95% of people are shooting with a cell phone. They come home with more photos than most guys with DSLRS/mirrorless strapped to their neck. The ability to edit & share photos instantly is very powerful and the need to carry a clunker around all day, come home to D/L, edit and share photos with family & friends is, quite frankly, a total waste of time. Sure, for some photography, a DSLR or mirrorless is needed, however after seeing what most people on these websites produce with such big & expensive gear, Id say they wasted a lot of money.

I take pictures mainly for myself, not for uploading at web-size on some website.

I heard some rumors they got into mobile industry as well :))))
Yamaha makes watercrafts, bikes and contactors. Mitsubishi makes cars and electric motors...
Funny...funny guy...

The Yamaha Corporation (the parent company of Yamaha Motor) is also world-famous for its top-notch production of musical instruments as well, among which there are very nice pianos and wind instruments (flutes and saxophones among others).

Sacher Khoudari: How do high speed cameras work? Do they also produce rolling shutter artifacts at very fast moving objects? Or do they have a *real* global shutter?

They work by costing thousands of dollars... XD

photomedium: Great video for the abstract concept impaired, rolling shutter is one of the easiest concept to understand.
Only remaining question: why don't they make every camera a high speed one and solve the problem?

Cost.

DPPMetro: I feel sorry for anyone not buying into Fuji, Sony, or Canon (the latter for dSLR). Nikon will survive, so the sorry is to a lesser extent. Anyone else buying Pentax or any other brand is mostly dead in the water and don't know it.

Olympus seems to be doing better, but they really need to up their sensor tech. Why is there no word of a BSI U4/3 sensor yet that can close some of the gap between it and APSc?

It's years that Pentax is about to be closed... we got used to it ;-)

I don't care about purported employees and/or delusional fanboys.

Maybe I'm just dumb... but how, "soft"?
Last time I checked, silver wasn't "soft" at STP...

Edit: NVM, just googled.

On article A Taste of New York is a stunning Big Apple time-lapse (89 comments in total)

Truly special, not the average boring timelapse.

aris14: No matter if photography is the subject in this forum, it is bad manners, to say the least, to show pictures w/o the appropriate caption for the viewers to understand what those people were trying to do at work...

@aris there are captions on the original site, just follow the link.

"pixel-peepers (I mean that in a good way!) "
No you don't! XD but that's ok ;-)

Very nice reading, as usual, and stunning pictures.

On photo stealing a sip of water in the Your City - Citybirds challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

LensBeginner: Are you sure this is in Rome?
I'm asking because - while I know that the she-wolf is the symbol of both cities - there's an identical fountain in Siena - I know because I made some very similar shots there.

Great shot at any rate ;-)

DPPMetro: Cue Pentaxians to come in and use this as propaganda to bash other brands and to cover up that Pentax has basically one foot in the dumpster with the other foot pushing off the loading dock.

Uh... I didn't do anything of the sort, and I guess I can't speak for others?

Seriously, if you think it's a conspiracy then call the media and expose them...

On the contrary... on what I believe to be the biggest Italian unofficial Pentax forum on the internet we actively encourage everyone seeking advice about buying a Pentax camera to choose a Canikon instead! XD

We the Pentaxians are too busy taking pictures to bash anything ;-)
Now I'll go and develop some from the last outing *_*
