On article Can computer corrections make simple lenses look good? (159 comments in total)
In reply to:

domina: I'm a software engineer and into computer science and I never trust software, computers or programmers. Windows, Chrome and all your software crashes quite often, think about it. The last thing I want is bugs in my lens correction.

From a self described software engineer this is quite a naive comment. If you can't trust software in a camera I suppose you never indulge in air travel?

wus: Nice try, but need better ... 15 m depth rating isn't even enough for snorkelling. I wouldn't mind an interchangeable lens system based around the CX sensor as long as I can take it down to 60 m and have at least 1 true wideangle lens, like the old Nikonos V with the 15 mm UW Nikkor. Although a bigger sensor camera with a (true!) phase detect AF and a couple lenses including a true macro would of course be better. And of course a strobe (or, better, 2) are mandatory for serious underwater photography.

Just make sure you don't use the 15 m snorkel with this camera and you should be alright.

Was a bit worried about the less than rugged look - underwater equipment tends to get knocked around - then saw the protective rubber skin. I suppose not so bad.

But still, would you feel confident having the front glass exposed under water?

Just another gadget review site.

New owners should always ask themselves why the site/product became popular in the first in the first place.

Joe Ogiba: 1080i ? Really ? Poor Fuji, they still don't get it.

1080i at 60fps. An option for 30fps?

dpLarry: The photographer didn't go 'calm down guys' but was like 'go go, damn! I'm getting good shots here'

I know the replies here are speculations said in mirth only and that the posters don't really know what happened.

Will present myself as a witness if it comes to that.

atlien991: I like that this story appeared here. It serves as a welcome reminder that while we all (to various degree) share an interest and dare I say love for photography, our views and thoughts on the real world are quite a different thing.

As proven by so many of the comments in this thread. And it also stands as evidence toward a question that has become somewhat common: where are the women photographers?

If I were a woman I might decline hanging out in internet forums of mysogynist a-holes who believe women are the cause of their own oppression.

I appreciate the poster who pointed out that while we understand that most violence is perpetrated by men most victims are also men. That point and perpective really broadens the discussion in a healthy way, I feel. In that same vein, it is important to remember that violence comes in many shapes and forms for us photographers to document and for everyone to think on (and hopefully act on). Striking a person physically is but one manifestation. And it is NOT the most common or most deadly.

Women (and frankly anyone not a white male) are subject to an economic inequality which is deadlier by far and far more prolific and widespread. In fact, it is this inequality that so often coerces women into relations with men that they might avoid if they could ensure their own economic security without the man. While I havent appreciated many of the comments in this thread, I do find the space and willingness to discuss refreshing and encouraging.

Yeah just look at the economically privileged white male above - Maggie tolerated him because she needed his weekly pay cheque?

Sounds like she did abandon him so why does it need be be quoted as if it's an inaccurate description of his? You don't like that characterization? Well how about when a couple go out and the man choofs off leaving her there, is he treating her well?

Then we see top left photo she's pointing her arm out while addressing him rather sternly. I suppose that is her "telling" him, but when his communication is described that is a "rage".

She is telling him to get out of the house, it's not her house!

From there it turns to crap and his physical violence is inexcusable.

They're two 'Jerry Springer' types (see below) who we laugh at on Jerry Springer, so why should we take them seriously now?

RichRMA: I find many of these wide DR images are lifeless, flat and lacking in dynamics. If blacking out some shadows results in a more dynamic, engaging image, why go HDR?
As for Rambus, things aren't that pretty right now.


I'd played around with the contrast and brightness and made it look better. Contrast especially.

Hey critics, they've said their prototype sensor is 128 x 128. The sample above is bigger than that and is described as a theoretical comparison.

So that ain't even it!

Jeff Peterman: Amazing how our expectations have changed. To me, these are grainy and over saturated compared to modern digital images!

Some people prefer the noise of a vinyl record audio reproduction, though they call it "warmth".

Would make a good wedding camera.

I suppose better than a Bushmaster, just.
