skinnymakespretty: theres more emerging photographers, not just 30.

Yes...but how many 'emerging photographers' are making money?? Maybe that was the criteria....

Jessica Sample has a pretty impressive client list at age 29....

absentaneous: I keep observing that in such "competitions" the only factor to actually get picked is luck and more luck. I mean you could open any page on any photography social website and pick a photograph of the same quality and insight in no time. I mean you don't really need a jury for these things. it would be the same if they simply put all the names in a big jar and then pick 30 names out of it. same result, same quality. guaranteed.

You know what they say...you have to be good to be lucky. The inherent problem with photo 'competitions' is that they are completely subjective...such is the nature of art.

Want to see some world class imagery...go to 500px. There are some amazing photographers and most of them will never receive any recognition whatsoever.

facedodge: I like the concept.... and I know there are way more talented people not being considered.... and then there's 19 year old Olivia...“Do what you love and do it till your whole body hurts. And as long as it isn’t killing people or something equally as horrible, you’ll do great.”

Ahh yes...to be young and naive.

Andrew Elliott: I can't see my name anywhere!

Seriously though, in these examples at least two of them got their horizons / verticals straight.

LOL...I was thinking the same thing!

Dan4321: No people?

Please, could you post some photos of actual people taken with this lens in the samples?

Statues don't count, I want to see how the lens handles delicate skin tones, eyes, lashes, etc. Close-up portraits, full-body shots, groups shots, environmental, studio, etc. It's important for a lot of us but it seems like a lot of the time, review samples posted by you guys have only a few people shots -- or none at all. Please don't neglect people photographers.

Seriously....what do you expect from people who are posting this info for free (and advertising). It's Canon's BEST standard zoom....if you need it than buy it. If you don't like it then return it.

Start selling that dang 10-24!!!! I like wide angle...and the 10-24 is the only lens I am waiting for.

BroncoBro: When is Nikon going to grab the camera market by the balls and do something innovative that LEADS the market rather than follow everyone else?

Timbit - I agree that the RX1 is far more impressive...but 'accounting for sensor size' doesn't make it magically shrink to fit in my pocket. There is currently no camera out there this small with this size of a sensor. The closest thing would be a Sigma...but it is still a bit bigger.

Maxnoy/Timbits - The X1/X2 is 'not much bigger'...really??? I suppose you guys think a Suburban is 'not much bigger' than an Austin mini.

If what you want is pocketability there is a HUGE difference:

Leica X2 - 124x69x52 345g
Nikon - 111x64x40 299g

BroncoBro - Tell me another camera maker who offers an APS-C size sensor in this small of a package. (Hint: there currently isn't anyone who offers this sensor size in this small of a package....truly pocketable).

On HTC One: Is it the the ultimate camera phone? post (78 comments in total)

I don't get all the haters. I love my HTC One X but I'm now on the pre-order for this HTC One. Awesome phone. I just hope the 64GB version is available in Canada.

ManuelVilardeMacedo: An MF system or a brand new yacht: you choose.

Manuel....even if you had to buy the lenses...say you spent 100k.....that's still a pretty cheap 'yacht'....even on the used market. Just sayin'.

Not to mention the fact that no one paying $4ok for this back is making a decision to buy it instead of their 'yacht'. This is clearly aimed at pros who can pay for the gear...not your average Mom and Pop soccer parents. Clearly you are not in the target market (nor am I :)

stratplaya: This girl has made some bad choices in her life.

Austin - I don't think that it's an either/or thing at all. You are likely quite correct that it may have been both in this situation.....but to come on here like the OP and say 'she made some bad choices' is just a little lopsided....so I leveled the field.

Ahh......how about her loser boyfriend who has made WORSE decisions in his life...at least based on the limited back-story. How typical....blame the victim.

Your comment insinuates that it is somehow her fault...or that she asked for it.

Yeah...real tough guy...rips his shirt off and beats his woman. What a loser.

drummercam: The canons-nikons have had their own flops and their own manufacturing defects. There were light leaks on one of the canon dslr's, and the nikon V2 looks like marc newson could have given it some badly needed design help (same with entire PS G15 line and the NEX's, as far as I'm concerned). Disagree that K-01 is in any way ungainly in the hand. It lends itself to a solid grip and thus better view-screen shooting than anything I've handled. Big enough for a good, long-lasting battery in common with my K-7 and K-5. And rubbish to all the noise about the rubber SD card flap. It's fine. Intuitive menus, great feel to the buttons and dials and the pop-up. Maybe you need to own one to know it, but the K-01 is a solid camera capable of great images, and I didn't need to buy a single lens for it.

Drummercan - I actually don't care what you think about the K01...if it works for you great. Call me shallow but I like things to work well AND look good...so for me the K01 is a pass. There are a tonne of cameras out there and almost all of them will give world class photos....so I figure why not buy one that looks good too:)

Drummercan - 'Looks' much like photography is a matter of taste.....but there is such a thing as 'bad taste'...such as anyone who thinks the K01 isn't ugly.

Clint Dunn: Here's proof that while it should be what's on the inside that counts....we're all still hung up on how a camera looks on the outside. This K1 is ugly...and that's why it didn't sell.

Yes Anthony...beauty is relative. Relatively speaking the K01 is ugly.....and if you disagree you are in the minority....which is fine....
