PhotoKhan: People complaining about how Flicker might be no longer relevant, how it even does not recognize some camera brands and all other "logic" limitations for this article scope are missing the point.

This has been written and is being propagated because it has reached a "minimally true gestation state" where it CAN be written.

Little details, like the fact that a smarthpone manufacturer is being ranked among camera's manufacturers just because its products also happen to make photos, in the same way that we could rank McDonald's ahead of any star-distinguished Michelin restaurant by sourcing any "food photography" channel is of little relevance for today's "journalism".

If an headline can contain the "expression Apple overtakes xxx" it WILL be written, no matter how irrelevant the base data might be, if the actual switching rank being an "obscure" second or how much logic-twisting has to be performed.

Hey...There are even some very serious and business like graphs included!

The mentioned headline format is present in a "Fortune" article and, I just counted them, 8 other quick hits articles in Google, even in Italian and Spanish. (It seems the French are being spared on account of the recent atrocities).

Cupertino never sleeps. It is sad that Mr. Demolder, a contributor to a true photography site, seems so eager to serve the coffee.

Well Mr. Nam,
Since you work for the major of majors of displays manufacturing, you can even abbreviate and radicalize that trend.
Just tell your bosses to come up with a "transparent" EVF, operationally-wise.

ijustloveshooting: nice!.they acknowledged the problem and solving it asap... i hope other brands react like nikon...no any camera is flawless..

Yes, it is as simple as this.
Own the problem and solve it.
Any expense they might be incurring is more than compensated by the confidence their actions instill in their customer base.

Rats...Nikon had to go and solve the ONLY, tiny, tiny, little thing about this perfect product.

Double (Canon) rats...

DenWil: Just goes to prove that camera enthusiasts will go to any lengths to generate a problem, even shooting directly into the sun.

In over a quarter century not one job I have been hired to shoot featured that scenario. Then again I have not seen one image posted from a D750 that was rejected by an editor or art director for flare.

I must say, for nearly a quarter of a century you've been missing some great photo opportunities.

Maybe you might consider looking at photography as more than just the job, perhaps?

Badger1952: would love to but I cannot be bothered resizing 36Mp images from D800 - tried twice to upload and was told that a 6.8Mb file was too big - so I will sit back and enjoy all the other posts from my fellow shutterbugs :-)

You missed it, yes...

I am a Canon user and there are some very giddy Canon users supremely excited with the mega-mega pixels camera that is supposedly about to come out, who do not acknowledge that such large files might present a problem, as far as workflow is concerned.

My comment to Badger was more a tongue-in-cheek private pun, than an actual comment on his "problem".

Certainly not about your reply, which I did not even read.

Ah, the WB in those reunion shots...tsk, tsk, tsk...

Seriously, I love this hobby but I have no doubt it is even more enjoyable because of your continuous effort and excellent work.

See you (...for sure and profusely...) in 2015!

On 2014 Holiday Gift Guide: $500 and up article (6 comments in total)

As a photography site, it would be best should you focus on the screen capabilities of a tablet and, in that regard, SuperAMOLED ones are miles away from anything else.

Ok, first of all, kudos on the flirting banter. :)

Next, this is like seeing Joël Robuchon being given a new brand sunflower seed oil to make a signature dish.

While it may very well be quite tasty, in the end, we all know he will back to virgin olive oil as soon as the cameras are turned off.

In reply to:

b craw: Such as in the case of Gursky's "Rhein II", I am usually one to promote the perception that the art market, in its highest strata, is a fairly opaque landscape of speculation; and it shouldn't be tied too closely to art historical value. Although, in the case of Gursky and Sherman as just two examples, we can clearly trace critical dialogs largely supportive of their respective importance within the art world of the last several decades.

Not so, in the case of Lik. Since the mid 1980's Lik has built a respectable catalog of bucolic images, but this is the extent of his impact. Unlike other such as Robert Misrach, Lik's landscapes are highly predictable, and their conceptual penetration (beyond being pretty pictures) is fairly shallow; there is no evidence of his work resonating, in an academic sense, within the context of contemporary art. Now, before some might unleash their animus for me stating this, please understand that this is by no means requisite for work to be valued or do well in the market. I am only drawing a distinction between Lik, largely a commercial artist, and others who likely stand at more pronounced interstices in term of art history and the history of photography.

One more observation: some have suggested that it is admirable that a "living photographer" achieved this record sale figure. In fact, in the past generation or so, the art market (photography) has had record after record broken by the work of artists, most of whom were/are living.

The rationale is interesting but, still, several thousands of millions paragraphs short of correlating the price with the work.

...and yet, from a different perspective, the transaction could be very well be explained with just a simple world:

Cupidity.

This is very impressive, especially when we consider that we are still in the early interactions of the technology.

Well, at least and unlike Foveon cameras, even if not that vibrant the colors make sense for those of us not afflicted by deuteranopia.

On Leica M9 users report sensor corrosion issue article (379 comments in total)

Leica is about to find out how one of the types of users they so adamantly and constantly target should actually be avoided.

They might not have a clue what that rangefinder locked in the display serves for but they sure can smell a drop of blood in the sea of litigation from miles away.

In reply to:

Cooleator: I can see the logical differences compared to lower mp FF, however I'm pretty sure a 30mp+ FF Foveon sensor would trounce this 50mp MF sensor at low ISO...

...sure...as long as you don't mind having whatever colors it decides to reproduce instead of the actual scene ones.
