photo_rb: photographers vs. technonerds. Ansel would have loved his iPhone.
Yes, Ansel would have loved his iPhone. And once he is done talking, he would use a view camera with the best optics to take photos.
Press Correspondent: Oh, great. More "mobile photography" nonsense.
Sorry, my bad. I thought it was a photography site.
Oh, great. More "mobile photography" nonsense.

This is a fake record. I don't know what "antique cameras" this guy owns, pinhole, Polaroids, digicams, or smartphones, or may be he owns a thousand copies of the same model, but in my book "antique camera" stands for film. The world record for having the largest number of film cameras belongs to Richard LaRiviere (USA) who owns 894 DIFFERENT film cameras that he has collected since 1960.
What a waste of time.
If I have a bakery, would my customers care for my excuse that I only use a battery operated oven? No great photographer was ever proud of using inferior equipment. "Mobile photography" is not photography, it is an evil plot to destroy the culture of photography by replacing the role of proper equipment with snobism and the cult of personality.
I finally see what "mobile photo" is all about. And welcome to my ignore list!
absentaneous: can someone explain me what's the difference between mobile photography and photography? and why don't people say DSLR photography, compact camera photography, m4/3 photography, laptop photography, PC USB webcam photography, etc.?
This discussion is not useless, it just did not turn out as flattering as you expected. I don't know of any great photographer who was proud of taking photos with inferior equipment. If you want to be a real photographer, stop pretending that you are so good that you can take pictures even without a real camera.
Absentaneous is wrong, mobile photography is not just photography, but a dedicated attack of the "progressives" to diminish and destroy the culture of photography. While you are enjoying your moment in the spotlight, you should understand that you were simply picked by the "progressives" as a tool of their destructive agenda.
The mobile hype is not just annoying. It is a dedicated wide spread attack to diminish and destroy photography.
A brief history of photography:Pinhole - Film - Digital - iPhone - Pinhole
absentaneous,The answer you are looking for is snobism. "Look - I can take better pictures with my phone than you with your DSLR!" It is just a new phase the "progressives" are going through. Simply ignore it. Once it runs out of being "a new thing", it'll die out for the lack of actual substance.
Nice post. Thank you for taking time to put it together! One minor observation is that the perspective was not corrected in the first photo. The trees are falling to the right and left. This however does not make the photo any less impressive.
Does NOT work properly with Safari on iPad 2 or with Internet Explorer (Windows 7). Works great with Firefox on PC.
I prefer landscapes.
No kidding, just moon landing pictures alone...
"Distagon is a reversed telephoto lens, consisting of a large negative lens in front of an ordinary lens. This allows it to obtain a short overall focal length with elements of a larger and more manageable size, helps design a system that is favorable for both high relative aperture and wild-angular field, and increased the back focal distance beyond it's usual magnitude, which give space for the mirror of a SLR. The downsides are that is must be physically large, and of complex construction to correct all the aberrations, making the lens more expensive to produce. Reversed telephoto designs are rarely over 2 inches in focal length, and then it is only used for specific applications. Compared to the Biogon, it has a larger circle of illumination at full aperture, though softer when wide open, though it is sharper when stopped down. Rear element does not interfere with mirrors in SLR's."
Barbu: Bad Kreuznach. Go to your room ;)
Yet another brainwashed press release, unfiltered at the producer and unbelievably unedited on this site.
Even the rumors sites are more careful with what they publish...
He went to his room to play with his Barbu...
