Tronhar: I visited a raptor sanctuary in British Columbia. They are training and using (under contract to the authorities) eagles there to attack and bring down drones that encroach on the airspace around Vancouver and Victoria Airports. Apparently the birds love doing it.

Of course. Birds never bring down aircrafts.

SirSeth: I tried it just now. First impressions are very negative. I first tried opening 36 raw files from a shoot. OK, this is not how the use the program. I had to restart my machine cold boot. Took a very long time to open just 1 RAW from my A7. First tried to bring up shadows. What the heck, it looks horrible!? What is going on with this? It's pegging my 6-core CPU and 16GB of ram with Win10 at nearly 100%. I also tried a trial of ON1 PhotoRAW and it kept crashing my machine. (Same as last year when I tried v.2017. Hope Luminar is better because I don't want to do LR CC.

ProfHankD: No PlayMemories apps? What the heck is Sony thinking? This was their opportunity to get ahead of everybody by allowing 3rd-party camera apps using their well-developed interface... and instead they're disabling the feature. I wonder if this is Sony's reaction to the interface having been hacked so that 3rd-party apps are now possible... if so, this might be the single dumbest move Sony has made since entering the camera business.

It comes with a pre-installed root kit.

mpb002: Sony will never really be considered a major player. The crown goes to Canon. Lots of lenses, great ergonomics and images. It is very interesting regarding equipment and weight. We all seem to be getting a bit lazy. Ever hear of Ansel Adams? He lugged a big, heavy camera around and the great results that it produced.

Was it a Sony 8x10?

Amnon G: Did you notice the weird texture in the left eye of the model in the 3rd image? Looks very processed.
Also look at the right eye in photo #6.
I have never seen humans with patterns like this.

So this is over processing or we found the way to identify replicants ;-P

Good eye!

Tim C.: "Deep Fill is powered by the Adobe Sensei technology—which "uses artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and deep learning"—and trained using millions of real-world images."

I may be overreacting in assuming this, but are the millions of real-world images coming from users who have uploaded their images to Adobe's cloud-based system? If not, where are these millions of images coming from?

"...where are these millions of images coming from?"

IDK. Sounds like it's coming from some kind of underground artificial machine somewhere, like in a DoJo well.

KodaChrome25: Some marketeer came up with the buzzword 'deep'. Now it has been glommed onto and applied to almost everything marketing is trying to sell. And don't get me started on fake AI claims. Put on your hip boots - it's getting "deep."

@mattd007 "Unfortunately, the deep-learning catch-phrase is now morphing into the more general and ambiguous term of AI or artificial intelligence. The problem is that terms like ‘learning’ and ‘AI’ are overloaded with human preconceptions and assumptions – and wildly so in the case of AI."

From iTunes:

"The Nude App magically scans your camera roll..." and "Once our proprietary technology analyzed your camera roll..."

See? No AI mentioned. At all. None.

Gmon750: I've been doing this for ages on IG (on my Mac) without a plug-in. In Safari, I change my user-agent to iPad or iPhone and IG thinks I'm using a mobileOS. Case closed.

Just add the develop pull-down menu in Safari under the preference->advanced and switching between MacOS user agent and iOS user-agent is two clicks away.

Brilliant!

daddyo: If in fact, this is a 'Q-tip', it is totally biodegradable. The tip is cotton and the shaft is a paper product.
All this angst, by a bunch of people owning and buying plastic filled cameras and lenses produced by smoke belching factories in China.

@daddyo Cow manure is bio degradable too. Thanks for your contributed portion.

Moon0326: Um..Erez Marom again.

The title really should be "Erez Maron's weekly photo and paid Ad"

Seriously, it's been only Erez Maron's photo for the last few weeks.

When I clicked on the tag link for Photo of the Week, five weeks came up. I had already noticed previously that there seemed to be a lot of landscape PotWs to the exclusion of portraits, street photos, etc. Then I noticed all five weeks were the same photographer. Odd.
