On article Film vs Digital: Fashion photography shootout (298 comments in total)
In reply to:

JacquesBalthazar: Let’s be explicit here: what we are looking at is 100% digital.

One is a set of files of digital captures produced through a scanner, the other is a set of files produced by a digital camera.

The first category is produced by capturing via a CCD pre-existing images of a scene as materialised on chemically treated pieces of emulsion, the second is produced by directly capturing actual live scenes via a CMOS. Then both sets are electronically edited, resampled and downsized to fit the destructive DPR publication requirements.

If the analogue chain advantages (tones, dynamic range, grain structure, etc) exist, they will have been dramatically compromised via their digitisation process.

Finally, there are so many effective film simulations available now in the digital processing chain, that you can mimic analogue quite easily for all practical purposes.

Sticking to an end-to-end analogue chain is the only way to witness its unique qualities (via a print or a slide projection).

Meat eyes meet plaastic pixels vs. less plastic pixels.

rialcnis: Looking forward to a bunch of hands on reviews and comparisons to Sony. Why did they remove the 6K anamorphic?

I figured that was it.

Steve in GA: The moral to this story should be that you should never do wedding photography for couples who are lawyers or photographers.

Or nuts.

curiosifly: I was trying to read the comments to see what others say about the technical quality about these photos (I don't like them personally and I think some of the points are totally valid). But I am surprised that most people are being so harsh on the customer and make fun of them. I especially don't understand those comments talking about their divorce or even funeral. Really? That's what we send to a new couple? All because they complain about their wedding photos? OK, sure, this is a site of 'photographers' so that may make some sense. And I guess if I buy a car that breaks in a week and complain to the dealer, the dealer should respond: " didn't you check our online review? If you didn't, it's all due to your stupidity and this would happen to any of your car sooner or later".

You mentioned fears of divorce or funeral, did they forget Hari-kiri? Of the Photographer?

This is for get rich quick, ponzi operators. No thanks.

Totally hackable fake fiat currency loved by naive nerds and darkweb buyers of illegalities.

rialcnis: Years back Apple became another brand of PC/ Workstations but with the mediocre, insecure, OS.

Currently I like the new custom "Origin PC" workstations (or gaming) and the "Maingear" systems, with the best cooling and incredible options.

Origin PC was started by three execs originally with Alienware before Dell bought them.

Dell has nice workstations too, but not custom.

Apple components were all propriatary for years--regardless what sweat shop assembled them.

You need a new PC

@kikiriki I'll explain what I said a little more. Apple used to make their own components, but quite a few years ago threw in the towel and essentially became PCs using PC components but with their mediocre OS. They are overpriced and usually a generation behind top PCs.

High end PC workstations as the ones I mentioned are much better, more expandable and of course runs a superior, more versatile OS and you get much more for the money.

What part of my comment causes the huh?

Probably the mediocre insecure OS?

jongelman: Is this camera good for astrophotography...ie. imaging the moon?

Yes, but best to have a tracking tripod---especially for Video.

Peiasdf: Windows 10? No thanks. I am not a Mac user but recently I have been forced to get Windows 10 after I screw up my Windows 8 registry and Windows 10 is a POS. How is it acceptable Microsoft put ads in start menu? You pay $100 to $140 for the OS and it comes pre-loaded with sponsored contents and MS is also doing targeted ads base on programs you've installed/opened. Since when it is OK to charge money and force ads?

@HowaboutRaw

Give it up. The "adware," "spyware," is your own brain, selling yourself on Apple marketing fantasies and propaganda.

LV-426: Looks good, but unfortunately it runs Windows :( If it isn't running an OS made by Apple / Google or smaller devices like Raspberry Pi running Linux it just isn't really relevant in this day and age. It's 2017, not 1999...

@retr...

Don't be naive. Apple is a toy. The OS is totally nonsecure.

Find what John Macafee says about it. Least secure.

Not to be mean, but Mac-toy computers are ridiculously bad and insecure,

I'll wait to see the upcoming Windows phone version of the surface. A 15" tablet sounds great. I hope the upcoming phone version will also have 15"
