A versatile tool. Good job.

Ideal for bringing back to life old photo archives.

Creativity by Adobe..?

On article Throwback Thursday: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F707 (137 comments in total)

A fine cam designed from a blank sheet of paper so to serve the needs of digital era. Night vision pix were usable. Great features included. As all Sonys at these days somehow suffered a little in greens. A great example of how people cannot adopt the shape of things to come.
(We still like the T-shaped cams, this was an L-shaped cam, I think an I-shaped cam would be the best, who cares if it looks like a video recorder)..?

Steady sellers always need attention if you are a serious manufacturer who cares for the people who consist your power.

To my eye, Canons had always some kind of problem in rendering whites. Glad to see there is a serious improvement.

Great job! It is always important to say that wildlife photography demands almost military preparation and huge patience.

"...Although the sticker price was the same as the Mark IV's, that $3500 would now be the equivalent of $4300 in today's money..."....
On the contrary R&D cost, promo etc etc should make this baby cost less than $2.000.

Alternatives to PS...
Hummm....
As for what?
For composing, for image manipulation, for CMYK convert, for advanced calibration, for RAW conversion, for what workflow (photographic or publishing),..?
Adobe maybe follows a wrong path, to my opinion, after the CS2 launching, but at least PS can deliver overall in 99,5% of situations consistently.
For image process, photographically speaking, there are some competitors for sure, some of them don't even mentioned in the article, pity, that can fully support RAW or not workflows, except the rare cases a photographer needs to have control over CMYK images in which case the available sw is quite limited.
Some of them are more versatile than PS,
Btw NIK suite is still out there for free...
C'mon DPR guys, what's wrong with you..?
Is it the water..?

IP software has practically reached its limits. Few, if any, fields remain to be improved and not in an essential or break through approach.

belle100: Doing it the typical Nikon Style: 2-steps forward and 3-steps backward.
2-steps forward : Batteries and Blue Tooth
3-steps backward: no ultrasonic sensor cleaning, no external mic port and no stereo mic.
Very nice Nikon.

The cost of upgrading battery life and the addition of Bluetooth must have cost them about $15, so they removed sensor cleaning and ports to keep the balance, thus preventing the cam to hot the market with a SRP of about, let's say, $750.
Genius, isn't it..?

On article Epson's 4K home projectors to go on sale next month (63 comments in total)
In reply to:

REDred Photo: I generally like Epson products... but I'm not a fan of manipulative marketing claims. "Incredibly long lamp life" ... "Watch a movie every day for 7 years." And that's only in low-power mode.

Do the math. That's less than 4500 hours of lamp life. That's perfectly fine... but it's nothing special either. Average lamp life for home and office projectors is 3000-4000 hours at full power and 4000-6000 hours in "eco" mode.

I'm sure it's a beautiful projector. Why go out of your way to manipulate consumers with 'emperor's-new-clothes' claims on specifications? Just seems sleazy to me.

Now look at LED projectors from LG... 30,000 hours lamp life. The Barco projectors go for 100,000 hours! That's "incredibly long life" for a projector.

Unfortunately advertising has no standardization code, something let's say like CIPA. There is something called like Code of Ethics (lol) which has nothing to do with product/service's actual data,

On article An introduction to our studio test scene (110 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ken Croft: Adobe Camera Raw may not get the best out of each individual camera. So is it just for convenience that you settle on the same raw converter for all cameras. It may seem that you are creating a level playing field but would it not be fairer to each camera to get the very best possible performance figures.

Our cam's raw converter is something for what we paid for. So if a manufacturer's RC is considered just a typical obligation delivering poor results or performing badly, it has to be mentioned.

Ι think that their capabilities easily surpass any action photog's needs.
I also think that it is very hard for someone to bring those beasts to their performance limits in real life.

It's not what they like, it's why they liked it. And those guys can express it the way they experience it and that's totally fine for me.

One of the few masters of cinematography who knew how to compose a scene to its finest structural detail. Well ahead of its time.

Great publicity for Canon...
