entoman: I used slide film for more years than I can remember (Kodachrome, Ektachrome, Velvia, Provia, Agfa, 3M etc). Most of my friends had switched to digital long before I did, as I was convinced that nothing could ever replace the quality of slide film.

Then, to my surprise, about 2 years later, advances in digital technology and cameras meant that digital became superior to slides in every way - less noise/grain, higher ISO, greater resolution, better colour balance, wider contrast range, wider gamut etc etc.

Why anyone would want to simulate slide film is difficult to understand, but I took a look at the Colibri website, just to see if I was wrong. Without exception, the simulated images looks a great deal worse than the original digital shots!

A few interesting insights from 5 years ago....

If I went to a tall building - well, tall-ish in Sweden lol - with a camera and took a photo of people on the ground, is it surveillance?

Galna åsna svenskar!

TacticDesigns: Simply an awesome idea.

I could have totally used this a few weeks back when we went to Cedar Point Amusement Park in Ohio.

I could have gotten a bit of video of my daughter, who is only 8, going on one of the huge roller coasters they have there. I could have turned my head every now and then to capture her reaction to the huge drops. LOL.

As it is, no cameras / phones are allowed out while you are riding for obvious reasons. But as long as you have a good head strap, glasses are allowed! ;)

:)

Nice photo! Thanks!

mpgxsvcd: Lawyers doing their lawyer things.

Yes, and if a court case ensues wait for the statement of how they'll defend themselves "vigorously."

vlad2304: I have 5-6 excellent headphones that, combined, cost much more than IPhone 7. Now I am using IPhone 6S with 128gb memory where I keep most of my audio files in ALAC format. In case something goes wrong with my current phone I'd better switch to any other phone with 3.5mm jack, be it Samsung or something else...

Get the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.... I hear that's a hot buy!

In reply to:

falconeyes: I wonder if US citizens are aware of how ridiculous their legal system now looks to other parts of the world?

In my mother tongue, the idea of a "state of justice" is so important that the corresponding term "Rechtsstaat" became a part of other languages too (cf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rechtsstaat ).

It is a corner stone of democracy and it is quite obviously (to people living abroad at least) broken in the US.

Especially in our times of competing civilizations (West vs. Arabic vs. East), the broken legal system of the US causes tremenduous damage to all of us.
