tombell1: Well I think this a stunner. I have the G7 but with

IBIS
WEATHERPROOFING
NO SHUTTER SHOCK
it makes a good camera really fantastic at this price point!

However having bought the G7 I may just wait for the next iteration with the 20 chip. Well done Panasonic

I guess you're right... I'll keep my G7 and wait as well... Hurry up Panasonic!

In the example given, Guetzil has lost significant tonal variation compared to libjpeg. For example, look at the pixels in the very center of the image.

Iloveaircraftnoise: People need apps to remind them when the sun sets and where the milky way shines?

This really is a sad indictment on humans in the digital age.

Yes indeed, Iloveaircraftnoise, your statement is a sad indictment of uninformed people like yourself in the digital age.

Steve in GA: Something tells me Mr. Von Wong has an agenda.

Let's hope so. Imagine a life entirely focused on maximizing personal wealth and consumption until you die? What a terrifying fate...

Chris Noble: Interesting. Are there any programs that project the "amount" of various different colors that are present in a photograph onto a color wheel? It would be nice to have that next to the histogram when you are post-processing.

Thanks, MrBrightSide, I'll check into it.

Interesting that they are all landscapes. No street photography, no portraits.

On a different topic... the captions are repetitive and overlaid over the images. Sloppy.

In reply to:

Betico: These Chinese manufactures are now as good, if not better, than their Japanese competitors. One simple example:
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85/G80 is as good as the Fujifilm X-T2, but it costs almost half of the price.

And the Japanese cameras used to be "almost as good" as the German ones.

The times they are a-changin', to quote a recent Nobel Prize winner back in 1964, the year of the Praktica V SLR. You all remember that one of course?

Chris Noble: Subwavelength coatings have been known for many years and are widely used in the optics industry.

The article suggests that Canon's coating is somehow new or a factor in the use of these particular compound "cheap" lenses to replace a single larger optical assembly. That is not the case.

In reply to:

John Bean (UK): Adams wrote a lot about the importance of visualization but never once used the term PRE-visualization, a term used often by others when discussing him.

We're stuck with it now but it still irritates at some level.

From Merriam-Webster:

Visualization:
1: formation of mental visual images
2: the act or process of interpreting in visual terms or of putting into visible form

That definition seems to fit Adams' mefhods and doesn't need a PRE- ;-)

Pre-visualization = mental image before going out on the shoot. Visualization = mental image during the shoot.

What's so complicated?

These Kickstarter campaigns, combined with flexible Asian contract manufacturers, have created an interesting new way of launching new products. (And I still like my cargo shorts).

Do some of the posters below realize that this is about photographic emulsion paper (i.e. exposed and developed), not about the paper that you run through your inkjet printer?

In reply to:

Chris Noble: These two photos are clearly a stride apart, not shot at "nearly identical" times as your writer suggests. You can see that the runner in blue in the back has moved significantly relative to the pack.

I've changed my opinion. The Getty Images photo is taken just slightly earlier, and from a more advanced position, but during the same stride. The background shift is too short for a full stride, and the different angle explains the difference in relative runner position. Bolt's expression is also too constant to be maintained for a full stride. The Reuter's photo is a better shot.
