The Fat Fish: I'd get one if it had the laminated screen. Sadly it does not.

I tried both the new iPad and the iPad Pro side by side today.
This "gap" that people suggest makes drawing problematic on the non-laminated screen is a complete non-issue.

Once the image is zoomed in, you can draw/paint as precisely as you want without any problem. To the pixel. And if the image isn't zoomed in, it is equally tricky to get absolute precision on either iPad.

I call BS on this "problematic gap" of the non-laminated screen.

The only advantage of the laminated screen that I saw was slightly richer colors with marginally deeper blacks, possibly due to less reflection.

But as a pro Photoshop user, it's insignificant for me and I will be buying the new iPad. I can't justify spending hundreds of dollars more for such a slight difference.

Of course for those who need faster refresh rates, 4 speakers, more RAM, better camera etc. - buy the Pro. But as I'm only editing still images, don't play games or take photos or videos, the new iPad will do me just fine.

Onur Otlu: Hmm. After trying out for some time, I'm very interested in the Apple Pencil, which won't work with my iPad Air 2.
I like the new 10,5" iPad Pro, but I can't justify spending so much on a tablet when I also have a MacBook Pro, which I can also carry around.
This could be just the product for me.

If you zoom in further, wouldn't that solve the problem?

Does the non-laminated screen look different too - worse colour/contrast, or something?

I've seen a few people mention this. What does it actually mean in practice?

That you can't draw precisely and lines will appear in a different position than where the pen is? Wouldn't zooming in a bit more make this a non-issue?

Dheorl is clearly trolling, people. Ignore him/her.

Why was this video ever considered worth publishing on DPR?

So many fails:
The shouting and waving of arms clearly annoyed many people.
The content wasn't engaging, and 2 of the examples showed completely different photographs, not "fixes".
The content is questionable anyway - what he calls "problems" often aren't.
The guy completely ignores his own advice, contradicting the content. The video itself breaks some of the rules he's talking about!
The sound quality is terrible.
etc.

With so much high quality content for photographers on the web, why feature something like this? Honestly...

Peter_Birch: Gave up after 23 secs. His voice gave me a headache like listening to a road drill. Why does he try to fit millions of words into 6mins?. Slow down dude and give me one tip.

Videos are lazy, that's why so many people are making them nowadays.

Switch on the camera, rant for a few minutes and consider it done.

Writing an engaging article takes a lot more time.

A simple look at the video should silence the critics...anyone still left complaining seems like a troll to me.

On article Vigilante photo blog brings Insta-frauds to justice (6 comments in total)

Could somebody please explain, as the article seems to completely skip over this point: why should anybody care if people put a #nofilter tag on a filtered photo?

If it were evidence in a court of law and had deliberately been manipulated/photoshopped/filtered etc. to deceive a jury then yes, it's important.

But this is just people's snapshots on a photo-sharing site - not a place where complete accountability is necessary. What does it matter if they mislabel it? Who cares?
