PetaPixel: Reuters Issues a Worldwide Ban on RAW Photos.
Post-production is a time-suck, no doubt; however I think they’ll rue this move. I can do a lot to a JPG, untraceably. Canon users will hate it - gives the boost to higher dynamic range sensors. Nikon and Sony win this one.

EOSHD: Samsung NX1 officially dead - Samsung announce complete discontinuation in Europe.
Reviewers and esp. video wonks loved it. Roland, this may be the first ‘death’ of DSLRs.

By the Jersey shore. I need to haul my camera gear over thataway sometime soon.
Telegraph.UK: Dame Judi Dench - ‘I can see red lights all over the theatre’.
“One of the reasons she is so youthful, I think, is a determination to be creatively moving forward, doing something new.” Appropriateness. I think it’s worth discussing.
Blue, blue skies.
Kicking the tires on a Nikon D810 for the weekend. So far, the dynamic range is stunning compared to the Canons I’ve used. Kicks the 5D Mk II, Mk III to the curb. The only thing saving the 5DR(s) is that huge resolution, which can make up for shadow noise when reducing resolution to normal commercial print sizes (8.5x11, for instance). However - if you overexpose even a smidge, you’ve lost everything. And the post-processing requirements are huge, whereas the D810 works right out of the camera with just a couple of tweaks.

Great convo. Then again, I’d probably listen to these guys even if they chose to read the phone book. Their likeability shines.

DP Review: Canon’s Q3 financial results show increased profit, decline in ILC sales volume.
As I’ve stated previously, they need to up their sensor game. Nikon and Sony have them trussed, gagged and quiescent in the dungeon.
DP Review: PocketWizard Plus IV transceiver gets TTL pass-through hotshoe.
Macworld: Make Apple Photos for OS X more powerful with an editing extension.
For Photos faithful. I was astonished to see Pixelmator doesn’t have a quick white-balance tool; so I rate most of these as nice for smartphone image tweaking, but if you’re serious, head over to Adobe. Imagine wanting to re-edit something in a couple of years - will this stuff even still exist? Too much Rube Goldberg here.
DP Review: A lot to Leica? Hands-on with the Leica SL (Typ 601).
Leica makes a mirrorless cinderblock.

Hmmm. Forewarned is forearmed. Say something next time, 500px.
