nawknai: For me, the standouts are:
4: Glacier5: Arty b&w staircase6: Deer7: 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.
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.
exdeejjjaaaa: ahaha... that's not glass corroding... that's their reputation.
Ah dont be a nob. You think the designed it to corrode?
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.
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 tip the hat again :) great community of gear junkies!
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.
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
Roland Karlsson: Hmmmmm ... a color film with faulty colors.
Damn better forget about converting those old digi bodies to IR, cant have something different.
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?
billorg: So what 3 NEW cameras are at the forefront of innovation right now - among all manufacturers?
Gx5 over lx100 tbh
Poss: Can’t stop laughing. This is beyond funny… marketing initiative…Whatever medication Canon’s management is on, I want it!
Remember the recent something big announcment in India which turned out to be a photo comp? Now this? Pathetic Canon, just keep on doing what you do, dont sully the 7dii success.
