Sdaniella: RIP

athlete
died in accidental photoshoot of athletic activity in a non-athletic (unreal) scenario

this is one of many reasons photoshopping was invented for *faking* impossible scenarios (staged scenarios notwithstanding)

Given he left the wires in ... it's a possible scenario. They did it.

meanwhile: Wonder if Miyazaki is designing/building the lens for it?

It wasn't actually a joke, Bellamy has a pretty close relationship with MS-Optical, and Miyazaki makes some wonderful small lenses.

Why didn't you just ask him?

meanwhile: Wish the Ultron was for E-Mount too.

Actually, I don't really care thinking about it. I already have a 40/2 that I love.

Not quite the same as designed for E-mount though.

fcracer: I wish companies used more direct communication methods than twitter to let their clients know of critical information such as this. This is the third company this week that has provided information outside of its own email lists for information, that if it doesn’t reach its clients, could cripple the very product they sell.

They haven’t certified it to work yet, but it works without any issue here on High Sierra.

It was just a joke. :-)

El Chubasco: I really dislike LR user interface. I wish I could switch to a different platform and stop feeding this beast. Unfortunately there is no other option in the market as robust and efficient as LR is.

Appwise, meaning things like Photo Mechanic.

I am very much ONLY talking about its file management in the catalog features being a kludge. It was designed to be session-based, and then catalog features have been bolted on. That is what is kludgy.

Yep, and there's also another bunch of apps you can use in combination with it, but I like an all-in-one solution that just works. This is just a hobby for me, would likely be different if it was my job. Even if C1's was just decent, that would be better, but it's a kludge at best. Because they also sell Media Pro and are a small shop, that may not change in the near future.

Well, except that you've subscribed to them.

Image-wise C1 is great. File management though ...

cdembrey: As usual, the photo of the Leica SL is misleading. Zenit will NOT be rebranding Leica cameras. Just more click-bait from DPR.

@Richard Schumer, as reparations from WW2, the Soviet Union was giver Zeiss. Jena. Jena, in East Germany, was the original home of Zeiss. This equipment and technology, was the start of Russia's optic industry. So yes, they do have people capable of grinding lenses. Did you think that Lomography's Petzval lenses were made by unicorns?

Analog rainbows.

Simon Forster: So what's next on the "legendary" list, the Canon nifty fifty?

They did, but they screwed up. They released it cheaper, rather than making it silver and quadrupling the price.

Cotton buds here. You aren't supposed to stick them in your ears.

But who can resist?

FarawayPictures: I've often wondered when it became 'OK' to litter?
I wonder if it was with the advent of cigarettes, that are thrown on the floor when used?

"I remember when people were poorer generally, so they made things last a longer time, and got them fixed."

Most things nowadays are designed to not be able to be fixed. It's not just the fault of consumers - there really aren't that many fixable options available. Many things also cost just as much to fix as to replace, because they are cheap imports, and people with the skills to fix things are scarce (thus their time is expensive).

Articles like this are actually informative. I wish people would stop complaining about everything. DPR can't bloody win.

A photographer who does some great explaining behind his images is Rick Nunn. With each project he puts up lighting diagrams and explanations. Awesome to find people who give back. (ricknunn.com)

Anyone know what level of zoom it hits f/2.8 maximum aperture?
