Minos82: I will shed a tear with grad photographers when all of the following becomes true:
- Grad images stop charging extortionate fees from already indebt students for their graduation image

- These images are indeed actual work of art and not an industrialized process devoid of any workmanship
and finally:

- Grads are given the opportunity to actually have friends or family step in the very place the photographer is during the graduation ceremony so as to take shots of "the moment". This "golden position", devoid of any obstruction, is unfortunately reserved/attributed in a monopolistic way to these people therefore preventing parents to take better pictures of their own offsprings' graduation

Untill then, no tears from me. Those businesses, clothed as education institutions, would sell your homeworsk to tabloids if they could.

It's not a work of art
An automatic photobooth can do exactly the same thing, if not better and more consistent.

On Leica M Monochrom now available in grayscale (sort of) article (137 comments in total)
In reply to:

samfan: I just calculated that if I'd shot a roll of Tri-X every day, and had it developed and scanned, even the mono Leica M would pay for itself in just 18 months (probably sooner if you factor in the cost of a decent film M body).

Buying bulk and developing and scanning yourself - and the M pays for itself much sooner in saved time.

I don't know why are so many people so confused. Film is bloody expensive.

A roll a day...

In reply to:

qwertyasdf: May I request DPR to compare the 24mm against a lens that is lab tested to be 24mm??

Actually I didn't mention it, but I'm interested in the FOV difference
The lenses on compact cameras are mostly software compensated, its interesting to know the IQ and FOV penalty.

In reply to:

phgordon: Truth is that the M9 has in camera correction. Does that make the Leica M lenses of dubious value? There are trade offs to any design and I do not begrudge the Leica engineers the chance to produce the best overall image.

You pay your money and take your chance.

1300 comments and the camera has not been seen in the wild. Amazing.

1300 comments thanks to contributors like you ;)

So many complaints? .......Why?

O yea, we need a unibody camera, because cast metal cameras are casually breaking apart.

On Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art Lab Test Review preview (574 comments in total)

To be very honest, a 50mm lens, no matter the performance, doesn't excite me.

There are more superb 50mm lens out there than there are superb photographers.

I'm more inclined to see some unseen lenses, 20mm F1.4, anyone?

LOCA very apparent in F1.4_12IMG_6056
I miss the days when I just started photography, I didn't care about sharpness, don't know what's vignette, CA, let alone LOCA!
Now it's the first thing I see!

luxor2: The chart showing "equivalent aperture" is nearly unreadable due to poor color contrast. Almost a poster child for Excel disasters!

Why does the F value goes back down for some cameras???

On Ricoh announces medium-format Pentax 645Z article (161 comments in total)

The issue is...not about the absolute size of the sensor.
it's the fact that it's called a 645, but without a 645 sensor.

It's like naming a 8-cylinder engine Model V12.

Good to see a circular FE for APSC, sensible price also.
FE ought to be cheapish, since we only use it thrice per year.
