joe6pack: I like the idea!

But one problem is that while the photographer blink, the camera also shakes. Paired with a small sensor and likely very small aperture, the image is going to be either very noise or very blurry.

Seems very useful. But how does the backpack stay on the back then? Specifically, how does the backpack distribute its load onto both shoulders.

So the broken glass melted through the tarp yet I can see the guys neck and t-shirt exposed.

I hope Apple charges a ton of money for the royalty so no company will license the patent.

$6,799 USD raised by 307 backers.
45% of $15,000 flexible goal with 2 months left. Go figure!

Am I understanding that while focusing the light, these engineered material block most of the light?

Handrails are long and usually vibrates a lot on touch. You can't count on them for stability.

OBI656: $69.00 is a crazy upgrade price. I will pass on this upgrade.

How did you find out the upgrade price? I don't see it in their website.

Can I install DXO 11 along with older version without interfering with earlier installation?

Tahir Hashmi: Long time DxO Optics Pro user here and I just did a quick comparison between DxO 11 and DxO 10 regarding PRIME 2016 NR and Spot Weighted Smart Lighting. I'm happy to report that the improvements are real.

First off, my favourite High ISO Test shot for NR.
PRIME 2016 https://www.flickr.com/photos/code_martial/27142991210
PRIME 2014 https://www.flickr.com/photos/code_martial/15610784099

I've rendered this shot previously with PRIME (2014), LR 5 and Capture NX2 (links in the photo description). PRIME 2016 is head and shoulders above the methods I previously tried. It's got better details, colour saturation, shadow areas and smooth area rendering.

[1/2] continued...

The color, exposure and even distortion correction are different! How about keeping them all the same except for the noise NR?

In reply to:

Androole: Does anyone have any actual examples that shows that the PRIME noise reduction is worthwhile?

I've tried the "best" NR packages in the past (i.e. Topaz DeNoise) and find that they all still obliterate too much detail. I'm happy removing chroma noise which is dead easy in any package, but I haven't yet found a noise reduction solution for luminance noise that looks better than leaving it untouched. Your mileage and aesthetic preferences may vary.

My experience is that high ISO image taken under good light (as in your case) does not really reflect the noise under poor indoor light.

Does the camera move while taking multiple photos?

I used Aftershot Pro (ver 1) for quite a while. It is very fast and has some nice features that is beyond image processing (swap color, heal photo, etc). However, support is non-existence. They would issue an update and screw up the white balance. From what I heard, all the original (Bibble) developers have left and the product have basically outsourced to the lowest bidder. Aftershot Pro 2 is basically a bug fix release for ver 1. Lens database is a joke. They would list a bunch of lenses but choosing them does absolutely no corrections.

So many haters!

Would you guys have the same opinion if you don't know what took the video? I for one, found the video quite amazing. I am particularly curious how it managed to take the picture of the rocket separating in space.

On article Unconventional COVR Photo case launches for iPhone SE (49 comments in total)

This type of accessory is certainly not first of its kind. I would say, holding the camera with the screen in parallel to the lens is the most natural way because the image moves in the same direction of your hand. I am not buying their idea for shooting children.

I just cannot imagine that many people like to point their camera up while taking photos.

DoubleDash: Zhongyi is making an FE 135mm 1.4 lens, though not Af. Also its proportions are quite bizarre; 3kg 105mm filter thread.....

Reasonably priced at 2999$.

Id wait for samyang to release it.

Minolta MD 135mm f2.8. $30. (used)

(unknown member): Interesting... For those who don't have the resources a Helios 44-M-7 will be a bit less swirly but optically better alternative for $40-60.

there are instructions online to mod helios to give strong swirly bokeh
