Horrible results in my opinion. Everything looks like a cartoon...
I like subtle HDR but this is ridiculous. Learn to expose well and get a good camera with good DR and u won't need this stuff...

clicstudio: LR is one of the worst apps I have ever worked with. I am forced to use it since Apple doesn't have support for Canon 1DX Mark II RAW files. >:(
It's slow, complicated and the interface is horrible.

@String. I use it cause I have no choice. I need to work with my Canon RAW files.

studiopwp: Errm this feature has been there for a long time now, ever since Content Aware Fill made its debut. You do your crop/rotate/straighten, select the transparent areas, feather 5-6 pixels and hit Content Aware Fill. BTW Content Aware Fill works far better on a flattened layer.

it only works on the background. not on a layer.

I must say the content aware tool in PS CC is very good. It works better than expected most of the time and saves a lot of time or at least it helps with removing unwanted parts of an image. Even complex tattoos or imperfections from skin and such.
I wish it worked on a layer though.

Funny, Snap Seed for iPhone had it for a couple of years now...

clicstudio: I don't understand who would buy such a lens and produce an effect that can't be removed. Basically if u don't want it, you are stuck with it.. In photoshop you can do the same and have control over the effect.
All of the lens baby line is the same. Photoshop can emulate all of their effects with a lot more precision and control.

Roland I meant u can use a regular fast lens that does bikes and then apply spiral effect in photoshop. Still, there are a lot of plug-ins that emulate focus and bokeh. Here is one. https://www.topazlabs.com/lenseffects

GRUBERND Photography as it is is not REAL. It's just an artistic representation of reality. For example, Bokeh is produced by glass, the human eye can't see it. Flash photography is not a representation of reality either. Limited dynamic range on cameras rely on external light sources to compensate of the lack of DR that a human eye can see. So, if u think about it. People have been Faking reality for a couple of centuries now. So Photoshop is just another tool to create art. Like a Flash or a fast lens with an "artistic" bokeh or not to mention B&W photos. Doesn't get any more unreal than that.
Some photographers still can't use Photoshop. And the ones that use it too much get criticized by the "purists". Who cares how you get the photo done. It's just art and it's to be admired. The end result justifies the means.

You can create real bokeh with any fast lens. then apply a motion blur, or spiral blur in this case, and create the same exact thing this lens does with complete control and versatility.

what a waste of effort. Nikon shouldn't even dare insult people with a useless feature just to claim they have 3Million ISO.
Then again, according to the new DPR review the D5's Low ISO is narrow.
I am glad I chose Canon 14 years ago and I am waiting for a 1DX Mark II to replace my amazing 1DX. :)

Is it me or the jpgs look better than the raws? Still both look pretty bad to me.

On article 'Details matter': Ian Goode on visual storytelling (26 comments in total)

Visual yes. Story telling? Why? The original photos already tell something.
Color correction and adding fx and elements doesn't change the fact that the original photos were not that great to begin with. Maybe they should concentrate on being better photographers and not spend hours fixing dull photos.

Indrek Ladva: Very good camera if using for the right purpose, but AF-ON and ISO buttons still so SMALL!! Especially ISO button. Why Canon? I need to handle my camera with gloves in winter. Really hoped progression in this aspect. I know I can adjust ISO to Set button, but I need Set button for image review cause original review button is on the wrong side for my.

as far as I read, u can customize any button to do almost anything.

clicstudio: just ordered one from B&H bundled with a 64GB Cfast and Reader for just $5999. Can't wait for April!

Canon is not desperate. Probably Sandisk is subsidising the CFast because they need to make it mainstream like the CF was. The price of the body alone and the kit is the same.
Besides who in their right mind is going to slow down this beast with a slow CF card? It's like having a sports car and using it in Eco mode or using regular gas. I am selling my 1DX with ALL my CF cards bundled. I don't want or need them anymore.

just preordered a bundle with 64GB CFast and reader from B&H for $5999.
I hope DPR reviews this camera this time around. They failed to review the 1DX 3 years ago and also the Nikon D4.
