nawknai: For me, the standouts are:

4: Glacier
5: Arty b&w staircase
6: Deer
7: Backlit monk (borderline...)
11: Orangutan (or "monkey")

10: Planes. I love it, but I'm simple-minded.

#9 is mirrored in photoshop, and so I feel should be considered "digital art" rather than photography.

I do not believe #9 is mirrored. The sky is not mirrored.

On Olympus PEN E-PL7 First Impressions Review preview (496 comments in total)
In reply to:

bebgsurg: I'm sorry, but no flash = no buy. How Olympus could have designed a camera for the point and shoot crowd just moving up from cellphone cameras, and left off an embedded flash is beyond me. Inside or outside, sometimes you need a flash !!

Clip on flash with my epl-3 was fine! Also its free with the camera.

On UK Landscape Photographer of the Year winners announced article (159 comments in total)
In reply to:

chris_j_l: #4 looks very overcooked for me - others will disagree, but the rest I'd be very happy to stare at 'for more than 20 minutes' (if they were printed/displayed at studio size). For me the judges did a good job with an excellent submission field.

Totally agree... Pictures like that do not inform the reality of the scene too accurately. Love the winners in general well done'

Mirrorless Crusader: These photos look like they were taken by a 7-year-old.

Troll alert.

In reply to:

emadrisss: Another example of why our western societies are so decadent and why the 3rd world nations hate us so much - is a camera like this truly needed in this recession riddled world?

The fat cat leaders of the 3rd world countries probably are the customers.

Rawmeister: OMG. There really are too many mental defectives in the world.
So, so Sad.

Please, why don't all you "more money than brains" types stay away from the photography world.

I'm rooting for a massive worldwide ebola pandemic as a much needed attitude adjuster.

Wow, you are a horrible person, what if you were the first fatal case of this pandemic you are wishing for?

bigdaddave: The camera is genuine but I doubt the lens is, the black Planars didn't arrive until much later, they were all silver back then

Knowing the story around photo #4 may give clues too.

I am no expert at all, but I may note that as this was likely a special order camera, the lens may be custom too. (if it is indeed genuine, then this may be the explanation). Nice sleuthing.

In reply to:

Peter Bendheim: The barrel machining and finish looks horrid. The screw area is unpainted or worn. There have always been plenty cheap and nasty optics around, ultimately you get what you pay for.

Maybe the optics are better. But lenses are an investment, bodies are not. I'd rather spend extra for lenses.

Maybe the prototype is pictured

Hats off to lomo with another fun product. Photography can be fun and creative too, purists need tp spend more time shooting what/how they like to shoot and stop shooting down new products. Any new product is a good product as it keeps people excited and involved. Alternate photo techniques are fun and rewarding is you learn to work with it and for it. It does not replace your daily drive just suppliments it. Less hate more love.

EssexAsh: £7 a roll! ah those poor tragic hipsters. I'll carry on buying film for £1 from my local pound store and if i desperately feel the need to get my images looking that crap, i'll just adjust the tone sliders in Lightroom.

Wth? Learn definition of neckbeard?
