  • She isn't the first to document this subject. I have a book by Robert Burley, "The disappearance of darkness", that covers the same subject. He started photographing the Kodak factories and labs...

  • Wasn't that a Hasselblad with a 70mm mag?

  • The tiny piece of glass in a smartphone that they call a "lens" will never give you the quality that a medium format or even a 35mm format can give you. Never mind what they say about megapixels:...

  • Correct me if i'm wrong, but the first of the two pictures was taken ten years ago. In 2004 the streets of NY were allready as safe as they are today. Still Subway's, Starbucks and corporate banks...

  • Great idea to show something in two pictures what otherwise would be unnoticed. The dissappearance of real businesses in a city like NY is a slow process, but one that is taking the life out of it....

  • Remember when no one could believe the price for the RED ONE to be true?
    Five years later and you get about the same specs for a quarter of that money.
    A shame that the lens you'll need will still...

  • You really think that a $10 lens in a smartphone is capable of recording a 4K image?

  • Selling something that you know that it's no good is always wrong. When you buy an expensive camera you expect it to be functioning properly. You don't wanna find out about a faulty shutter after...

  • Pretty soon everybody is doing"streetphotography" with these awful google-glasses.
    I don't blame people for getting agressive when faced with someone wearing them!

  • The 10-24 compares to a 20-48 FF i guess?
    And yes, these pictures do show that it is hard to use such a wide lens creatively!

  • That's why a still shoot a lot of black&white film.
    When i see young parents shooting all those once in a lifetime events of their kids with a smartphone, i can't help wondering if these kids will...

  • It's just not possible to write 4K 25fps to a small SD card: the card can't handle that much data fast enough.
    So yes, it's only a marketing trick so they can put a 4K sticker on the...

  • Commented on Exposing another side of Sochi article

    Exactly, these pictures do not show the rediculous amount of money that was spent to "organise" the olympics (50 billion dollars, 20 times as much as the Vancouver games).
    Instead they show a...

  • 31 inch? For handheld shooting?

  • It's just not possible to record a bigger datastream without a external hard drive. SDHC cards are not fast enough.
    4K may look like the BIG thing with this camera, but i think it's HD...

  • The viewfinder has only 1/10th of the pixels you need to judge focus in 4K. Peaking is not enough there.
    And i doubt that SDHC cards are capable of recording 4K without huge compression. They're...

  • A Leica is using a rangefinder for focussing, Fuji X is a autofocussystem. That explains some of the pricedifference.

  • It's pretty obvious when concerts are being recorded. Big camera's in front of the stage, camera's on stage, extra lights...

  • That's what i noticed to. People are only interested in pictures of themselves in front off a famous subject. And even worse, some step over a wire or fence to actually stand ON that subject,...

  • I work as a TV cameraman, and one of the biggest annoyances these days are people holding there smartphones overhead to record concerts etc.
    While they can record our efforts with a...
