A good photograph displays what you saw.A superior one displays what you felt.
I don't get it...So these humdrum photos become special because they were captured with a 1.3MP camera...!?
This is very engaging photograph, yes.
...but, in what respects to photojournalism as an specialized activity, this is NOT an exceptional photo.
...I mean, they were the obvious subject and the photographer, probably being from his campaign staff, obviously had the most important single ingredient for a successful photo: Access.
His/her job was to point the camera and just wait for something to happen. He/she would have grossly failed on his/her job if the moment was not captured.
...But, If 100 PJs were allowed the same access we would have had 100 twin photos.
If we could see a general, establishing shot of the same moment and its location, some more creative/narrative perspectives could probably be identified.
"Our reviews editor gets his hands on one tonight; we're excited to put it to the test."
If the snide subliminal remark about the stylus ancient status is anything to go by, it will be a moot point.
You can jump directly to the "revolutionary", "new" offer by Apple: a 7-inch display tab...Blimey, so black T-shirt brilliant...who would have ever thought of THAT?
Wow!...This "Connect" thing is becoming to sound (read) like a elaborate PR stunt deployed by Apple to offset the sad stories constantly sprouting out of Foxconn.
In a previous inquiry of mine, Amadou Diallo didn't even went to the trouble of replying why he blatantly failed to mention a objective photography-related limitation of the iPad's Retina (low contrast) when he decided to rave-write about the display for photography "workflow".
In my eyes, few times have I seen something new becoming so quickly so irrelevant like "DPR Connect".
Coming next: How the IPad (...and only the iPad..), with camera on top and carefully balanced over a nail is the perfect image stabilizer.
(...Good grief, it's like a cult, I tell you....)
Why not a single word about Retina's contrast display capabilities, except to point out that what it has can be kept over a wider viewing angle?
Surely, as an involved and knowledgeable photography commentator, you know how important contrast is to image applications?
Does it include a root-kit?
Having the "My threads" link under the "Forums" tab just does not seem logical.
profus: am i only one to see, that the images viewed in the new forum are not looking that good ( sharp ) as before? try to compare an image from any thread to the same image opened directly in the gallery and you'll see what i am talking about...
since this is a photo forum - it is a huge minus imho :-((
I also noticed it.
I hope it is fixable...
PhotoKhan: Where's the "My threads" link for each particular user. Is it gone?
Thanks Jules!It is, indeed, misleading but I couldn't care less as it is now in my "Bookmarks Toolbar" :)Problem solved!PK
Where's the "My threads" link for each particular user. Is it gone?
If we opt for the "Collapsed" view mode, instead of the "Expended" there is no indication of the poster's identity for each thread. Is it supposed to be so?
Great..with my luck I had to post on the Canon 1D/5D/6D forum EXACTLY as the new format was being deployed.It returned an "error" message, still in the previous format and I went and posted again, already under the new format. Result? Double post.Can one of you, DPR associates, go there and remove the 1st post (the non formated one)?Thanks!PK
Type II Leica users (the ones who buy them to parade around the red dot) finally evolved to a full market segment and their keenness to achieve "status" irrespectively of function, by letting bank notes dropg from their wallets like rain after an Indian dance, is now being being marketing-targeted.
Late, announcement detached from availability, underspecified in what relates to the competition and in the wrong price-point.It's becoming their trademark and almost like a "death-wish" thing...PK
PhotoKhan: I don't get it...all that "real-estate" to the right of the individual items evaluation bars and, still, it gets a "golden award"?
The only individual item where it seems to shine is "Movie / Video mode" whereas something as critical as "Image quality (jpeg) " gets 8/14...far from gold.
This is still a photography site, right?
aim120, the unnecessary meta-insult is border line, under my standards. Still, I will reply, for now:
The review own findings, themselves, contradict the final Golden Award.
Is this succinct and to-the-point enough for you?
Broccoli taste "outscores" that of castor oil...It doesn't make it "golden" though...
The A57 outscores the Canon EOS Rebel T4i by, exactly, 1%.
...but the Canon got a Silver Award, which feels just about right, whereas a Golden Award here just does not articulate with the review own findings.
It is hard enough to be a reviewer. They shouldn't shoot themselves in their congruency feet, making things even harder.
Also, they should have always present that manufacturers love these "awards" to stamp them in their ads pages. Any "why, ifs or buts" that might be a factor don't make it there.

chadley_chad: Its stories like this that really highlight the newbies! People, don't diss a brand because of the stupid name before you've done some homework!
Attention "People Who Handle Optical Rangefinders":
Your LCDs can be used to review photos AFTER they have been taken.

PhotoKhan: Hmmm...not very impressed. Strange colors and quite "flat".
Verdadinha...Faziam isto, há quase 12 anos !
