On article Corbis Images content to be distributed by Getty (29 comments in total)

So Getty get to 'control' vintage pics that when they were first taken, probably had zero copyright claim or control over them.
So what gives them the 'right' to 'own' the images now?

In reply to:

Ultan: In-body stabilization with a wide range of movement that allows movements (tilt / swing / shift) for architectural use, rapid focal plane forward/back movement for focus stacking, astro-tracking, video frame-rates for multi-parameter stacking (e.g. high and low exposure for each of three focus shots for post-processing depth of field control and HDR , 6 shots in 1/10th sec.).

Advanced photon-counting sensor with flip-chip, thinned BSI, TSV, bonded to analog amp and digital preprocessor chip with an amp, memory buffer and preprocessor for each few thousand pixels, giving extremely fast readouts (and likely the ability to do other tricks.) Free-space (~1 -2 cm) optical sensor output and inductive power to sensor for internally wire-free sensor operation.

Mirrorless or semi -mirrorless design, (mostly transparent but retractable mirror design). Totally open, all-function remote control system. GPS / intertial tracker/ heading / elevation / auto time. Scr. tilt, HP jack, wifi, mono ver.

He also forgot the pen knife function, microwave and HD Freeview box, sofa, pizza delivery icon, beer dispencer.

BS feature!
So what if a place, location or object has been photographed endlessly.
We are, and it should remain, that EVERYONE is entitled to create a representation / 'memory capture' of any said subject for our own private (or even public) viewing enjoyment later on.
Unless you want to live in a totalitarian state.
Pure Sh*te!

Does anyone know what camera(s) / lenses specifically Julia used?

I feel it makes a bit of a mockery of their 'flagship' bridge FZ1000, when they steal the sensor from it and bung it in a phone...

Seems i'm NOT the only one who thinks so either..

In reply to:

xoio: "Canon is claiming it has a pixel count equivalent to the number of photoreceptors in a human eye."

A BS publicity comment...
But it has already been widely calculated that for an image sensor to be equivalent to a human eye, it will have to be around 576 Mega pixels.
Granted not all is used at the same time though.

That's why i said at the end 'Granted not all is used at the same time though.' ....

What a FAIL comment!
WP8 is refreshing, stable & different from the isheep, A-clone masses. MS actually got it very right with this OS!
