Combatmedic870: For a second I thought they used panda skin or something with the permission of Chinese government. I was about to flip out!
But I like the idea of these cameras. Atleast they stand for something. They could atleast donate 1 dollar made from each camera and adopt a panda for christ sake....
Panda skin? That sounds delicious.
It would be more interesting if he had shot these photos with a 17 yr old camera.
Does it have a creamy, dreamy BOKAY???
PAArchitect: Here is my problem with all this. If I want better or higer resolution photos I must purchase a whole new camera. This gets expensive every year. With film I could obtain wonderful results with highest quality lenses on like an FTb (Canon). As films improved my FTb got better, what a concept. Now I have to buy a new camera if I wish to get better resolution etc.Perhaps sensor up-grades for a nominal fee?
I'm holding out for an interchangeable sensor camera.
justmeMN: "CHINA - Industrial and commercial authorities have launched a probe into Nikon China after the company was accused by China Central Television of selling defective products.
Many consumers have complained of dust buildup on the image sensor of the Nikon D600 camera, CCTV said on its annual 3/15 Gala news programme on Saturday."
"Many D600 users including Du have asked for a refund or a free upgrade to the newer model D610, but Nikon has refused their demands, even though some D600 owners in the United States have been offered a free upgrade to the D610, according to CCTV."
The U.S. Government is too busy spying on its citizens, to protect them from unscrupulous corporations.
In 2011, a young couple posing for photos atop a 317 ft. waterfall in Yosemite Park slipped and fell to their deaths. A third person attempting to help them also died. Now THAT was a story.
They were going to call it the "BeExpensive" but that would have been too obvious.
vFunct: Again, just because you can operate a camera, doesn't mean you are the copyright holder.
Copyright law doesn't actually define what a photographer is when it assigns copyrights ownership. It only works on authorship.
That is why assistants, like this monkey, are never given copyrights, because they do not author the photograph.
At a photoshoot, I could go to my unpaid intern, without a contract, give him the camera, and tell him to take a creative shot, and I would have copyright.
Most people here have no idea that a real working professional photographer would have very little to do with operating a camera, which is why assistants taking photos are common.
And most working photographers spend most of their time planning a shoot. Mario Testino recently stated he spends about 2/3 of his time planning.
I think because most photographers here are amateurs, they think of photography as that limited view of operating a camera, like what a pro's assistant would do.
Think Matthew Brady
Those kids looking into the car could conceivably still be alive. It would be interesting to track them down.
Photography is about vision, and whether the photographer achieves this vision in-camera or with post-processing is largely irrelevant. I commend Elena Shumilova for her work.
I love my Lumix G5, and the GX7 looks like a real winner. Now, if Nikon would only make a full-frame version of a GX7, I'd be able to make use of all of my Nikkor lenses on a mirrorless body!
This design looks exactly like the camera icon on my Android tablet. Coincidence, or...
Once again, form over function.
camical: Hi everybody,
I am a D70s owner and new here.Please apologize if this question has already been asked before (I did not notice):How do consumers now make the difference when they go shopping for an X10 to their local vendor?Is there any distinctive sign between the "old" ones and the revised X10s in order to hit a revised one?Thanks in advance.
The cameras with the old sensor will have a BIG WHITE DOT on the box, and the cameras with the new sensor will have a BIG WHITE STAR on the box. In other words, "The pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle; the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true!"
Don't worry, Adobe will come out with the "Fuji Big White Blob Remover" tool in their next version of Photoshop.
