Nothing surprises me anymore.

@Denimage
You find the photographer disrespectful, and yet you insult and show disrespect for forum members. To even speak of urinating on strangers' graves shows your lack of character & maturity. You got called out, and reacted badly then doubled down. Your faux outrage is exactly that - fake.

Right. Because Steinmetz revealed their faces? Revealed their names or other personally identifiable information? No?

All cameras, except the ones you personally own & use, are designed for Someone Else™

And their paying users can also do likewise - walk away.

On article The best lenses for Fujifilm X-mount mirrorless cameras (291 comments in total)

I see some people are unhappy that their favorite lenses were either not mentioned or given short shrift. This is one reason I recommend people new to any system to try renting the lenses or buy them if you can get a a decent return policy.

Lists like this are useful but they are meant to be a starting place, not the final arbiter of what would work for each and every Fuji shooter.

Go ahead, buy what you like. I have, and don't regret it. I bought the 60/2.4 and the (horror of horrors!) the 18/2. And I love them both. The 18 stays on my XPro2 a lot.

So read this article and go out and do your own tests and settle on your own choices. You'll be much happier!

On article DPReview TV: Nikon Z6 review (285 comments in total)
In reply to:

patfish: good review! ...in my opinion the Z6 is in nearly every aspect a better camera than the A7III and only with a little bit better AF in photo mode they would have defided Sony with their first try - that's more than impressiv and I can't wait what they will do with the next generation.

My wish: AI for AF and 4K 60fps 10Bit internal :)

@BlueBomber

TIL Nikon had mirrorless cameras for over 50 years

Critical Thinker: Seriously, who cares? In context the photo is advertising the artificial dof. No where does it specifically state the image was captured with that phone model. Its 2018 and everybody knows that marketing is a load of bs. Do you guys also complain every time your burger from McDonalds doesnt look like the perfect ones on the ad?

@zxaar "Unless there are legal punishments for misleading i am fine with it as long as everyone is doing it and everyone know that everyone is doing it"

Even in legal terms there is something called "malum in se", a thing which is wrong or evil in itself. Deception is wrong, whether the law allows it or not, whether "everyone is doing it" or not and even if "everyone knows about it". Basic ethics. Unless we hold corporations to higher standards, we will always be taken advantage of.

@Critical Thinker so you're fine with deceptive advertising?

6BQ5: Laowa Venus 9mm f2.8. ‘Nuff said.

@6BQ5 horses for courses. For travel, having to change primes in dusty or wet conditions would not be optimal. In which case, the price is justifiable. I can't speak about the build quality of the Laowa, but the Fuji lenses I have are excellent and worth the price paid.

Now, if you had said the the Fuji 10-24 zoom is a good alternative at a lower price point, then absolutely.

@arbux you missed the whole point. Comparing a fixed focal length lens to a zoom: false equivalence much?

Svetoslav Popov: That's the beauty of using a perpetual license. I can skip this one, because there is nothing that i really need. My C1pro v11 is working without issues. And the longer i use it, the better bang i'm getting for my buck.

They should've improved the very high ISO NR with this update. But OK, i'll wait until v13, maybe then...

I agree with you, but only conditionally, that this is a good option. But only if:
1. You do not intend to upgrade your camera for the some time
2. You do not update your operating system (this may or may not be forced on you)
3. Or you hope that the next upgrade to your operating system does not break C1

The Laowa is unusable below 9mm or above 9mm. 'Nuff said ;)

Sannaborjeson: Having it for a few hours and I must tell you it's one of the best C1 updates ever. It is subtly better in every aspect: better color, cleaner UI and it's incredibly fast, it's just magical.

But is the upgrade price subtle or magical?

Dave Andrade: Yet another reason to go Android :)
Yes, I "went there".

@Dave Andrade
It really helps to read the article, even if details are sparse. Here, I'll help you out:

"Android phones owned too
As part of the competition, the Fluoroacetate team also found a way to pilfer information from Google Android devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Xiaomi Mi6. Researchers from F-Secure’s MWR Labs also showed off hacks against the same devices."

The link to the Forbes article is right in the DPR text above. I use both iOS and Android devices and do not have illusions about the relative security of those.

Agreed. Iridient charges a reasonable price and gives you real value. What a concept!

The first release was barely a Beta. It has stayed beta since then. Jerky performance, strange crashes. No issues with Capture 1 11 or the latest LR CC/Photoshop.

This isn't the first time that Luminar/Skylum made claims about "AI" enhancements. I bought their 2017 version, but saw little benefit from these claims. So I won't be buying this new version. If you already use LR/PS or C1, I don't think there is much to see in Luminar that isn't already available in those software.
