Phil Bishop: Spent quite some time failing to download via the website, but one of the Rapidshare links worked just fine.
Looks to be a good read, thanks for sharing with us.

I can't connect to the download site either.
What's a Rapidshare link?

Images by Kipper: I am sorry but I need a clarification here. You have in the challenge rules "Let's see some image taken INTO a church - pictures taken outside a church will be DQ." Do you mean 'Let's see some image taken INSIDE a church - pictures taken outside a church will be DQ.'? As one has to be outside a building to take a picture INTO the building, but by doing this you will be DQ. Am I missing something here. Thanks - Kipper.

I agree, the rule is confusing.
If you look into something, then you must be outside it, like looking through an open door into a room or into a building.

Brian Mosley: What's that in £ in the UK?

You should know by now that the UK exchange rate is normally $1 = £1.

aris14: An article to my opinion is a piece of text where you can read an opinion of someone who has to do with something.
It is not a presentation, it is not a test, there is no information that someone cannot find in the web and maybe a visit in a store...
Funny thing is that the author is an English woman and I say that because the free lancers from the island are considered top in any field of press especially the technical press. So where this tradition went?
I don't mean to be offensive by any terms, but that was quite a disappointing approach, rather epidermic and certainly not opinionated.
I am sure that J.Reavely can do more than that, after all she has a tradition to carry on.

aris14 said: "It is not a presentation, it is not a test,"
The headline for the article says "Articles in category: Product Reviews"
For me, a review should have a conclusion, even if it says "There's nothing to choose between them."
They might as well all have four (or five) stars, with no reasons for why they earn those stars.

Looking at the typical tourists around London, I'd say camera usage matches that noted by Jonathan F/2. Lots of DSLR and P&S/Phone cams with the occasional m4/3.
Personally, I prefer to have my cameras made by a company known for its photographic and optical products, rather than its TV's and Microwaves.

In reply to:

Klindar: I used Paintshop for years before obtaining Photoshop and now have both. The interfaces are similar and in many important respects Paintshop is the better product with the icing on the cake being you can sometimes get a license for as little as $29 compared to the $900 Adobe soaks you for with Creative Suite. Adobes upgrades alone cost more than a whole new license for Paintshop and IMO the value is poor when you consider what Paintshop does.

I bought Photoshop when it became apparent Corel were dragging their feet in regard to Paintshop fully supporting 48 bit images and supporting only 32 bit plug-ins (these are Photoshop compatible, BTW). I would also prefer that Paintshop be a true 64 bit piece of code as that is the way the world has gone. No matter for now as Windows runs all this legacy stuff to perfection.

Best wishes,
K

I'd disagree with you when you say " The interfaces are similar".
I find the Adobe UI to be one of the most unfriendly that I have come across. What particularly annoys me is having to use a keyboard+mouse control to do something that is simply accomplished using a right mouse click on PSP.

keeponkeepingon: Does it still come with free bonus spyware?

(AKA Protexis Licensing)

If you are paranoid enough to be worred about this then you simply disable it using Control Panel’s Administrative Tools.

On article Sony NEX-7 high-end APS-C mirrorless camera first look (352 comments in total)
In reply to:

Eric Glam: My disappointments with the NEX-7:

1. No clean HDMI-out. When connected to an HDTV, it displays all the menus along with the video feed, and the resolution is not 1920x1080, but less.

2. No touch-screen LCD. The NEX-5N has a touch screen, why not the NEX-7?
I know it has 3 dials, which is great, but why not add the touch capability as well?
I know a lot of folks who love using touch-focus, and it's missing here.

3. The screen only tilts up and down, like on the NEX-5 and NEX-5N. I really wanted a hinge mechanism just like the one on the A77.

4. Anyone here know how many focus points the NEX-7 is supposed to have?
And how many of those are cross-type?
Sony gladly mentions this on the A77 and A65, but no word what-so-ever of this feature on the NEX cams.

Further to my reply above, in the Imaging Resource preview of the A77 it says you are limted to 1 second of shooting at 12fps, so I'm thinking something similar here.

Eric Glam said "24MP shots in 10FPS is really great, and I'm happy with that.But what about the storage media that's supposed to store them?"

The most likely case is that you can only shoot a limited number of shots at that speed, and then have to wait for the buffer to clear. The same as any existing camera with a high fps.

It would have been logical to allow the same formatting options as in the forums.
I just tried to add some /italic/ text to a response and finished up with the formatting marks and *NO* italics.
Plus an "edit* or even "withdraw" option would be useful.

No viewfinder = No sale.
If it had an articulaed screen it /might/ have been worth considering, but the price is a joke.
