| p.1 #19 · Surface Pro and DPP tethered shooting |
I just played with one at the Microsoft store tonight. It's a beautiful tablet in many ways, and
the screen has 1920x1080 resolution.
I am sorry to report, however, that the web browsing experience for photos (at least in
Internet Explorer, which is all that was loaded) is POOR. Photos do not look sharp.
It looks like they are doing some expanding/re-sizing of the web images to fit the screen.
I could find no way to defeat this.
Frankly, the Retina iPad running Safari did the same thing.
Very disappointing. Images looked lousy but text looked crisp and clean. I suspect this
is just a web browser issue, and I'd love to see how Chrome works on the Surface Pro.
I expect your own images under DPP will look fine, but I don't know.
I am amazed that these companies can put this stuff out there without giving it to
a photographer for 5 minutes first.
In other ways, that Surface Pro looks sweet. If you get one, tell us how it looks running
