ShutterNot: Paparazzi are totally uncivilized and rude, and the people that pay for the pictures they take are a bunch of greedy folks that will do anything for money.
It's one thing to take pictures when famous folks are out in public, it's another altogether when you start stalking someone. What is to distinguish that type a photographer from a common pedophile, a thief, or a murderer ? They flash a badge that says .... hey it's OK I stalk you, I'm only taking pictures ?

No, were you?

Hi Roland, We don't agree and that is the beauty of an open forum.

A safe bet would be because he was high and an idiot.

That anybody is interested also has no relevance and my comment about paparazzi stands.

Tape5: Find me :

1 A softly spoken lady head of a state that has been seeing tens of leaders of nations from around the world for the past tens of years and never ending a dialogue with harsh words or animosities,

2 With a uniquely large body of cultural and political experience that is second to none globally,

3 Is unquestionably loyal to the country and its citizens,

4 Cannot be bought by any money

5 Has been reading and writing and working relentlessly since her first foreign visit in 1953,

6 Is still engaged with tens of humanitarian and environmental activities around the globe, and a whole lot more,

And then tell me that man's fees.

Accumulation of wealth or spending are not in her top 100 priorities, and the gold goblets she drinks in, belong to British people. We pay to keep an institution alive, because it is our heritage and our history. The Queen is a trusted partner who is doing all the hard work.

Harry's champagne bills go with the show.

Global cooling is a real problem. Beware the ever so slowly dropping temps. Saw a program on cable about it and it was convincing.

Smeggypants: They are a privileged Establishment Clan which get paid millions in Tax payers money and should have the balls to put up with the interest that goes with it. No sympathies.

Hallibuton is a great company to work for. I think one year Cheney gave $20 million to charity while Gore gave $420 dollars. LOL.

A driver on drugs going 90mph in a narrow tunnel killed the princess. It was such a waste. Elvis had a Brit driver in the states who tells a great story of his trying to avoid the cars chasing their limo until Presley told him to "slow down and pretend you don't see them". Diana would be alive now if this advice had been followed. Too bad Presley had other issues.

MustyMarie: But some/many of us COULD NOT CARE LESS ABOUT THE ROYAL FAMILY AT ALL !!

A family of twits who would be no-one if not for a name & wealth (inherited and certainly NOT deserved) !!

This is the most asinine of human activity, a given family of land owners, makes them special - how & why & STILL ?

The epitome of arrogance, and some buy into this and almost worship this utter silliness, even in other nations !

If ANY thing, their wealth should be taken and distributed to the poor of the UK, the land used as a park for all those 'commoners', and a law making it a crime to pay homage to the family name and the individuals - forever.

Very repulsive in the current age, or ANY age actually.

Only small & sad minds of individuals pay any importance to this family, sad!

Trump is only in this thing to shake things up. He says what he believes and it is refreshing. I will enjoy him while it lasts.

RedDog Steve: Telephoto lenses ??
At what focal length does a lens become objectionable ?

I'd be most concerned with the "pursuing cars" since this led to the death of the most beloved Royal.

That was a case of bad driving. It didn't have to happen. Had he been going slower it would not have happened.

TriezeA72: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly royal family snap shots by paparazzi's
The Good - The Duchess of York's Toe Scandel...Diana was banished for failure to toe the line set by royal decorum, Toeslut Fergie was banished because she over-toed that line
The Bad - Lady Diana's fatal car crash....there's a demand for celebrity photographs, as is evidenced by the sheer amount of tabloid magazines available in any supermarket or newsagent, yet we vilify the men and women who supply our demands, So who's right?
The Ugly - Texan John Bryan nibbling on Fergie's pungent toes

Paparazzi are useless slime but Diana's crash is on the driver of the car she was in.

mailman88: For the record.....Princess Diana was chased by the paparazzi and was killed. So the Royal Family has the right to be concerned over their safety.
Hey paparazzi...no more hiding in garbage cans. Hiding in sand dunes and using decoy children.
Show some class!

Diana was killed because a foolish driver on meds chose to drive through a narrow tunnel going 90mph. There was no need for a chase. That one is on the driver who made a bad decision.

Great shot. For all the criticism shots like this stand the test of time. The DPR gets a bit arthouse at times but there is always room for a formal portrait.

HaroldC3: Worthwhile upgrade even though the price is over $900? I think once the price comes down to around $600 it will sell much better.

Personally i wont buy an RX series camera again for fear of getting dust on the sensor. This has been a long time issue for Sony not only for their RX series but other compacts.

I have had it happen with Canon and Fuji cameras as well. Anytime a lens collapses into a camera it is a risk.

MrTaikitso: Sony are superb at miniaturisation, but need to work on their ergonomics, the one reason I would not choose an RX-100 series and sadly got rid of my NEX. (A-6000 better, but not perfect.) On the RX-100 series, the controls are too small, there is no top right multi-use dial and the case is too slippery. Sony could learn from the Panasonic LX-100, which would be perfect it it had an articulating display.

The quest for the perfect compact continues!

The controls are not to small for me. I have never had an issue handling my RX100. Now the GM1 is another matter.

@papa..Actually when buying an RX100 series camera I am buying a compact camera and I have never been to a sushi bar.

Some weird posts out here.

ThirstyDursty: Haters going hate!

Internet is full of armchair anonymous experts.

The dude has been successful, because people like his work...and he got it in front of their faces.

Putting him down because you don't like his work or worse are jealous of his success...what kind of person are you? And what kind of world are you making this? Very negative!

Trey! Good on you! I'm glad you found success in something you love! And want to share that with the world!

@BadScience, Perfect post.

When did not caring for HDR become hate? The word has become cheapened. Tastes vary. HDR is like Yoko Ono's singing. It is an acquired taste. No big deal really.

xeriwthe: OMG HDR SO FAKE

I don't care for it either. Some like it and some don't but on the DPR if you dare have your own opinion and don't call the photos in every news story "art" you are called a hater.

I do like photo 5.

Be careful because your post actually makes sense. You run the risk of being labeled a "hater".

Good post.
