Techo: Just wondering what folks, editors, other photogs, etc. think about having the lighting equipment visible in the final image? It seems more popular these days. No good or bad. Just wondering what pros might be. I feel it looks cleaner without but we all know it's a photoset so does it add the feel? What are you first impressions on this? Don't think too much ;)
eta: final crop here https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/08/movies/last-jedi-star-wars.html and an additional image.

I worked for a photographer about a decade ago who liked to do the same thing: https://www.google.com/search?biw=1920&bih=1017&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=p240Wri8BIr2jwP5-7aoCw&q=peggy+sirota+studio&oq=peggy+sirota+studio&gs_l=psy-ab.3...3394.4420.0.5667.6.6.0.0.0.0.95.354.6.6.0....0...1c.1.64.psy-ab..0.1.51...0i30k1.0.hDGTbOOV8M8#imgrc=uoiSJNmBHLfsmM:

She probably wasn't the first to take and submit those photos for/to clients, but it does seems she was quite a bit ahead of the current trend...

ttran88: Who cares about NG!! The bigger question is, what will happen to FOX news?? Will it be converted to “Fake News”???

And Fox News (& Sports too I think) are being spun off into their own company. So they can continue to spew their lies without tarnishing the rest of the Disney/Fox media brand.

Gesture: Thanks for posting. I guess I am not that perceptive. I thought the images belied the complaining, not to mention that the camera does things no other does. What did the first Polaroids look like?

Even if the artifacts weren't there, overall image quality, usability and workflow sound pretty terrible at this point. This seems like a pretty fair article. The camera should be enough for some people, but it really has a long way to go for enjoyable use and broader appeal.

Brueghel: A few are very nice, most are just ok

It seems to do a much better job for stills, when the shot is clearly well thought and prepared (and probably not hand held)

Fair enough! I certainly don't have the steadiest hands, either :) So I wouldn't mind a phone like this with built-in optimcal image stabilization...

Why probably not hand-held?

Deorum: Lightroom already allowed to batch change time/date capture time

This update is for the new Lightroom CC, not Lightroom Classic CC. So it brings several key features of the non-cloud version to the cloud version.

Impressive!

Great read. Didn't realize how big that thing is!

I wonder if Besant used photos of comedians because to him it's all part of one big joke he pulled on Calgary...

DarnGoodPhotos: I dont know what she's talking about in regards to these being dirt-cheap. The LX2 is $750 on Amazon. :-D

That's the price offered by a 3rd party seller (the only "new" option). Used it's listed as low as $99 :)

Wow, these cameras could not be more different from each other :) (Which makes the poll all the more fun!)

steelhead3: Trouble is that no one believes anything that comes from the Executive Branch of the US government anymore.

It's utterly maddening.

Good luck filing your claim ;)

In reply to:

kobakokh: bad news is dpreview doesn't update own reviews when something corrected by manufacturers. For example, they many times gave low scores to Nikon camras just for this bad application, but now? whats now? is they will update their review of Nikon, they must give them 2 scores more...

Nikons tend to still get very high ratings, despite the app, because they're still excellent cameras. Now in the future, new scores will reflect the app updates (though it still sounds like there's plenty of room for improvement).

Wow! This could really be the future of studio photography.

I wonder if it only works for black-and-white exposures for now? None of the examples are in color. Kinda makes sense if based on frequency. Give it a few more years, though...
