LuminousLandscape: Canon 5Ds Review Through Print Performance.

... people who buy prints don’t carry a magnifying glass with them – they look at what the picture is about and what it means to them. It’s a bit of a tough pill to swallow for some photographers, but most people couldn’t spot the differences in print quality between good and superb if it fell on them.” Great article, LL.

EOSHD: Canon profits down 16%.

Iterating too slowly in some areas, too small in others. IMHO.

EOSHD: Hands-on with the new Metabones Speed Booster Ultra.

I feel that most people will buy the Speed Booster Ultra for the impact it has on the image – F0.85 is very nice to have from a Canon 50mm F1.2!

One reader noticed.

On July 19, one of my photographs got in the NY Times. Elana Resnick and Will Nomikos were resident scholars here in Santa Fe, at the School for Advanced Research. I offered to take their engagement portrait while they were here. Will and Elana are both sweethearts; smart as whips, fantastic to brainstorm with. They restore my faith in the next generation shepherding our world to a better plane. Congratulations, E and W!!! Best wishes for a fantastic future.

Later: Irony. I can’t see it, because I’ve overstayed my non-paying outside-of-paywall status. Readers, let me know if it looks good.

My gracious. Older lenses, significant variation. Impetus to buy newer models for any given focal length.

Barry’s Blog: The Gig Economy and the Arts.

Recently there was news about a robot performing an opera, so the issue of machines replacing artists may not be as fantasy like and far-fetched as we might imagine, and though I think it easy to make a convincing argument that we are a long way from even sophisticated AI machines being able to replicate the ‘soul’ of human creativity, nonetheless the door is open.” Could a robotic drone be programmed to shoot beautiful landscapes? I’m betting so ... probably in the next five years.

Would 4K on a future 5D Mark IV achieve anything at all when it can’t hope to match the usability of the Sony A7R II or an upcoming Panasonic GH5 due to the dated form factor?

A little too staid for my taste. Until last year, I never realized Maserati had such a stable of beautiful little hard- and soft-top coupes. Some really lovely lines ... and grills.

Snapz Pro X wasn’t working on Yosemite.

It would sort of work once, never generate an image, and disappear.  A fix, that seems to work.
