On article Google will no longer develop Nik Collection (392 comments in total)

As another someone that paid big bucks for the original Nik suite, I was disappointed when NIK sold to Google and the software was made free. ... On the other hand, it did not really bother me because I had free access to the point-tech editing. That is an amazing tool!

For Google to trash the set is incomprehensible to me.

Actually, it seems to be a gigantic bone-head move.

You do not need a photographer who has earned his way up in the world of fashion. You only need a low paid intern. No matter what people say about automation, it is always replacing something that costs money, with something that costs less. The bottom line. In business, people are always looking at the bottom line.

Also, for those people who want to deprecate this tool by comparing it to a photo booth, you are missing the quality generated by a great Canon camera, very good lighting, and a larger space. ... And, my fine poop throwing photographer friends, how can you ignore the progress of, for example, camera technology in the past 10 years. ... Give this thing 10 years of progress. Just imagine what that might eliminate, in the terms of photographers.

Just say that you have a brand, and you very much enjoy a certain set of things. Program them in, and away you go. ... Video, Audio, Still, Print, Web, Tablet, Mobile. ... All in one shoot. ... Dude, it's the bottom line.

BillZuhl: Canon 70-200 f/2.8 II is about 2000$. So this one is 30% more money. 30% better IQ? Must wait for reviews.

I signed up for B&H to notify me when preorder was possible, which they did earlier this month, July 2016, so I preordered my Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS as soon as I was notified, and I have heard that shipping will be the end of this month. ...

The new Sony GM lenses are just that, new, and designed for more than the current full frame Sony cameras. ... Like the 42 megapixel A7r ii. ... You must think that Sony, the leading developer of Sensors on the planet, knows the multi megapixel jump in the future sensors. ... The GM lenses are designed for the future in mind, super sharp to maximize the detail in current, and future, cameras.

Darrell Spreen: It may not be art, but it's clever and shows a lot of humor in the details. I think of it like a multi-track audio recording where one individual may play several instruments -- we've listened to that for years, usually with admiration. This is the photographic version!

It is Art. … Many photographers will bemoan the fact that it is not a single image. … It is photographic art of a master, well lit, well staged for each individual shot, and well composed with the final target in mind. … Thereafter, each image is used as a brush stroke to the final composition.

On article CES 2012: Lytro Photowalk (139 comments in total)

I am really looking forward to the versions of these cameras that have a larger resolution for decently sized enlargements. … I can see a time when my customers, for example a line of musicians at a football stadium are shot by me at a sharp angle, then everyone in the line could log onto my site, and refocus the image so that their particular human is the human in sharp focus, while the rest of the band slides into soft focus. And then select that focus setting for printing. … I think it is going to be cool. … I want it now!
