The DP cameras are not supposed to be able to get shots like that.

Well done.

The DP2m is Too Primitive for Lucky Shots

Between removing the lens cap, mounting the camera to a tripod to maintain ISO and avoid dreaded color casts, composing with a 2002 styled LCD, waiting thirty seconds for the auto focus to lock, fifteen minutes for the picture to be written to file, and two hours of crashes in SPP software, the window for luck is so narrow that any photographer seeking it would have just moved on.

I found your answer quite troubling, maybe even disgusting.

When you put the image for everyone to see, the expectation should include polarizing answers regarding critique of the capture. Taking offense to such extent is just inappropriate in my view.

I truly believe that it was a a lucky shot of the subject (the bee), especially being not in focus and badly underexposed.

There is nothing to write home about as far as showcasing DP2M ability for action shots. Most of DPM users know where strenghts of these cam's lies. This type of photography is rather Achilles heel than the advantage and your picture prove the point.

Right. Not sure what this statement means in detail but it could be beneficial to think about it in depth before falling into similar trap.

Cheers

My post was a joke. I think the camera and the photographer are ultra capable, and don't like the idea of a "luck" shot. The "humor" was a stab at that idea.

Hmmm ... there are three things I find important in this image: the bee, the branch to the right and the two big flower at the bottom of the image. All those three are in reasonable focus, and almost nothing else.

That's a quite impressive "luck" 

I have not decided if I like the image yet or not. But ... maybe. It has potential.

Even if it is luck, even if the bee is under exposed, even if the bee is just on the border of the DOF.  I still think it is a great/funny shot.  But again i am just an amateur...........

I have absolutely NO problems with criticism of my images from colleagues who offer it in the truest sense of photographic camaraderie.  That shot I posted WAS a lucky shot in that I could not control the bee.  However, I set up my DP2M in that location, focused it to offer the best chance for success and waited patiently for the right moment.

However, trolls who have no life will never get anything other than a rude response from me.

diolus does nothing but insult people here in this forum.  He has less than zero class and deserves far worse than what I gave him.   I despise vehemently the likes of diolus.

You lost diolus with removing the lens cap......

This wasn't critique, it was a blatant attempt to discredit the photographer and the camera. Assigning "luck" to success in any walk of life is the easy (and unfair) alternative to giving credit where credit is due.

I truly believe that it was a a lucky shot of the subject (the bee), especially being not in focus and badly underexposed.

Some great pictures are not exposed perfectly, but that doesn't necessarily take away from the content. On my monitor it's fine anyway, albeit not calibrated.

There is nothing to write home about as far as showcasing DP2M ability for action shots.

By memory I don't believe he said that.

This type of photography is rather Achilles heel than the advantage and your picture prove the point.

How does it prove the point,? You just said it was a lucky shot, and by that we are to presume that you mean it is good enough to fall outside the range of the camera's strong suit. The shot is either lucky or indicative of what the camera does badly. But not both.
