On 'Building Absence': Stephen Tourlentes' prison landscapes news story (155 comments in total)
In reply to:

KodaChrome25: The negative commenters might, if they have not, visit the link above [Via: Prison Photography] for a fuller explanation of Mr. Tourlentes' work and why he creates it.

Thank you Mr. Britton for posting this. Much appreciated.

If you have to explain it....then the work doesn't speak for itself.

Funny how when someone lacks the imagination and skill for work like this it's labelled as PS trickery....but the various filters, PS, etc that everyone else uses is 'ok'.

I remember in the film days a buddy of mine thought I was cheating if I used a polarizer filter lol. Here's the deal people..unless you are shooting jpgs and posting/printing from that...well almost nothing is SOOC anymore. Here's a thought...learn some PS work to make the most of your images.

Tom Goodman: There is a lot going on here...
1. The mother is no farmer
2. She is, however, a card-carrying sentimentalist
3. The technology involved is completely irrelevant. Do we look at Velasquez' work and say it would have been better had he used acrylics?
4. DPR isn't obligated to stick solely to technical reviews.
5. DPR readers are not obligated to willingly suspend critical faculties because work has digital roots and appears on this site.
In the end, these are forgettable images unlikely to have any enduring value.

I always have to laugh at guys like Tom who are quick to criticize others work while having none of their own for public consumption. It never ceases to amaze me how quick people are to attack the successful....

carabas: Let's forget the whole "but the pictures are misrepresented" angle, let's also forget the "pah, it's all photoshop" angle, let's even forget the technique, let's just concentrate on aesthetics...

It's sickeningly kitsch.

Carabas - You're quick to criticize yet I see no link to your masterpieces...

Who cares if her work is 'kitsch'...it's pics of her Son for God's sake! Show me a Mother who wouldn't want pics like these of her kids...

Don't forget to post a pic of your cat before you sell it.

In reply to:

RedFox88: This is a camera trying to fix something that isn't broken. We don't need dials for these settings as they are better and faster controlled in other ways. This must be the camera for the mid-life crisis men in their 50s and 60s even 70s who want to try to "re-claim" their youth... and pay for it!

There are already countless cameras with all the adjustments buried in menus...what's wrong with a practical alternative for real photographers. This new X looks good to me.

In reply to:

T3: Well, I'm not really for cameras that have huge space-hogging dials dedicated to things like ISO or shutter speed (which can just as easily and efficiently occupy a space on an LCD screen), but at least they didn't go overboard with knobs, dials, and switches like Nikon did with the Df. As far as looking like a "classic" camera, it certainly looks like a handsome camera, and thanks to being mirrorless, it'll be more similarly sized to a classic camera than the chunky, fat Df. So I think this new Fuji is much more in the spirit (and size) of a "classic" SLR than the Df is, even though it's not an SLR at all.

...then buy an X-A1

JackM: It would take a lot of other features and capability to get me to give up an OVF. I hope this does not mean the end of the XPro.

I agree with Jim...I was always a long time fan of the OVF and didn't think I could move to EVF..but I was wrong. The XPro OVF was so innacurate with the framelines that I gave up on it and now use the EVF 90% of the time....and it's grown on me.

With the latest FW the framelines are more accurate...but it depends on which lens you have mounted. My 35mm is quite close but the framelines with the 23mm are pretty brutally inaccurate.

On Fujifilm launches updated grips for X-E and X-Pro cameras news story (118 comments in total)

Whine, whine, whine.....don't want the grip, don't buy it. Don't like the cost, don't buy it. Don't like the ergonomics of the camera and don't want a grip...yup you guessed it...don't buy it!

Really...if there is anything to complain about it's the people who bought the original XPro1 grip that didn't allow memory card and battery access...

In reply to:

tipple: One thing is apparent from these images, if Fujifilm enters the full frame market, with the results achievable with the XTrans sensor or even their conventional Bayer sensor, Canon and Nikon will have to keep on their toes! Fujifilm has demonstrated very good support in updating lens and cameras for their customers. It is apparent they are in this for the long haul and that bodes well for all photographers.

Not all of the FW patches from Fuji were for bugs...some of them were to provided additional functionality...like focus peaking.

Awesome looking lens but why oh why couldn't Fuji build a lens hood along the lines of the one for the 35mm 1.4....smaller and metal. I realize the hood needs to be a bit bigger for the 23mm but this thing is a monstrosity.

Joelmusician...we all know the X100S is a great camera...but the problem is that it doesn't mount so well to the end of my XPro1.

stupidisanart: Anyone else have an issue with fuji with reliability?

Yes...me. When I bought my XPro1 and 35mm 1.4 the lens stopped working in the first 3 hrs I used it....the AF would try to work but something disengaged within the lens body.

That was two years ago....everything been good since (with a replacement lens).

In reply to:

Alastair Norcross: Looks pretty good. Maybe even as good as the Canon EF-M 22mm F2 pancake, and only 9 times the price. I suppose you pay a lot for that extra stop (and size and weight).

Yes...and just think, you get to connect that plastic EF-M lens to that inspiring EOS-M that is flying off the shelves.

In reply to:

justinwonnacott: The lack of chromatic aberration and minimal distortion looks impressive, too bad about the sensor and its chronic softness. Nice legs - shame about the face - The monks.

I've shot thousands of images with my XPro1 too...and very rarely do I get a soft pic or an image otherwise ruined by the 'watercolour' effect.

In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: Like (almost) all Fuji lenses it's obviously excellent. But if I was that excited about a 35mm lens to spend this much, I'd just get the X100. I don't dispute that 35mm is a great general purpose focal length but for portraits and out of focus backgrounds? To each his own.

Dude...the lens is for people like me who bought an XPro1/E1....it's not like many of us would buy the 23(35)mm as our only lens..

On Swimming with the Nikon 1 AW1 article (196 comments in total)

Is it just me or does anyone else think it's just pure lunacy to take an ILC camera underwater without using a dedicated diving case?? Not in a million years would I trust the lens gasket to keep water out....or to submerge the camera in salt water...just crazy.
