D200_4me: I was wondering when it would happen...

me as well. Software can emulate partially what their technology does, and consumers don't need such flexibility that their product offer, at least not most of them, and that means less sales.

Smart move, but they should have predicted it a few years back in my opinion.

On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (722 comments in total)

I think black more compliments images because the colors pop out better compared to a lighter background. You need to maintain a consistent design of your other websites (connect), but it doesn't mean that the darker layout need to be changed. Giving an option for the user to choose the layout and save it in a cookie is a good experience.

With a light background, the images just lose their definition and that's why I prefer watching images on a dark background. Shadows and rounded corners should be avoided, because it doesn't follow the latest flat design trend, and in my opinion the flat design also helps to emphasize other elements in the page that deserve more attention.

Good luck and thanks for giving us that option.

Yake: I understand the ISO 102K, but not the ISO 3.3 million. How would that much noise be useable to anyone?

UFOs, UFOs!!

CptAmerica: not a fan of photos that are more photoshop, than photograph.

I think that some photographers need to understand that we live in a digital age. Photoshop is a tool that photographers can use for post production, like Ansel Adams took his own photos to the lab and "edit" them as well (applying stronger contrast, etc.).

You know that people can edit images in a way that you can never know, some do really professional with Photoshop. So what you are actually saying is that the photo is "good" depends on your ability to detect whether it was done in Photoshop or not. But if you can't detect it, is it any better or worse? Is it better to use photographic accessories to enhance the image, is that OK for the image to look less Photoshopy? And if so, what's the differences, because these are not software "tools", so that's allowed?

I don't understand what's wrong with Photoshop. If Photoshop an app in the camera was it OK. There are many camera settings that affect how the pictures turns out to be, and that's OK, so what's the problem with image settings using Photoshop. And if the percentage matters, how can you measure it?

I think the image looks just gorgeous, it triggers emotion, at least for me, and I just adore it. Amazing image/photo.

On article Sony Xperia Z5 camera review (111 comments in total)

I think that some of tests are done on a monochromatic image, and that's why they are not accurate and you see different results from real life pictures, but I am not sure.

fatdeeman: They must have done something wrong because I can't walk down the street without seeing a handful of people with one of these things attatched to their bike/skateboard/cat etc

Maybe it's not a GoPro :)

T. L. Rutter: Stop lying to consumers. For example, $399 model has a monitor on the back and 4k video at 15fps and based on the indoor quality, I feel that the camera is "pushing the envelope" in a bad way in order to create 4k content. Yes, it creates 4k size video but the quality is poor indoors. The $499 model produces 30fps (no monitor on back). If they want to go after it, they need to drop the price of their $499 model down to $349 and I feel sales would increase dramatically. Rather than offer a limited 4k with screen, re-introduce it at 30fps and sell it for $399. How hard is that logic? Don't get into the software crap. You aren't good at it. You don't understand it. Partner with someone else like Sony and offer a free version and a pro version. Duh! We have gone many years without software being created from you and it works out better that way. Dramatically work on indoors quality to remove the noise and offer higher quality and you have it. Higher quality indoors. Lower Prices for 4k.

GoPro is a dead horse, if they could innovate, they would have done it by now.

"The higher the expectation the higher the disappointment" - can't be more true. Why we need to learn it over and over again. Marketing wins, hands down. I feel like a stupid controlled puppet. Never commented so much in my life. Shame on me :(

Was expecting a new camera, and got a Canon EOS SHIZA - lol

In reply to:

Canon EOS 60D: I don't see any direct relation of their cryptic advertisement to that new website of theirs. They just created a website to reintroduce/reiterate their products in general.

There is nothing impossible in the products/services they showed. Everything was already done by their competitors long time ago.

I don't get what Canon meant with "at Canon, we see impossible". They're just basically following their competitors' footsteps.

DPReview should not post Canon teaser advertisements anymore as they are all LETDOWN.

No, we actually need dpreview to post it, so more people can be convinced to make the switch :)
