Steve oliphant: I used to own a FM2 best film camera ever,the nikon D4s best DSLR so far D300/300s nice cameras great build ,but this is not a $3000.00 dollar camera this is not a $2000.00 dollar camera it is really a peace of crap ,sorry i know this will really pee off lots of nikon fans but i think theres going to be quite a few nikon fans that will really really hate this camera, sorry for my early comment but man the build quality on this camera is so bad it's laughable .
Steve, meet the period. It allows you to organize your thoughts and not sound like a breathless teenager.
atamola: These "DP top picks" are really shameles and laughable.
The "How are these lens chosen" should read: based on what is most convenient for us.
The Samyang 35 f1.4 is an absolute optical marvel and the undisputed champion £ for £ and yet is missing from the list.
These "Top Picks" are nothing but shameless retail sale catalogs disguised as objective reviews.
Translation: A lens I own is not on the list. Wahhh!!
marike6: This kind of Fujifilm X100s infatuation has been finding its way into a few DPR articles of late, most notably the Nikon Df Preview and the whole "Retro Done Silly" fiasco.
I've enjoyed using both the X100 and X-E1 but I don't know too many photographers who would purposely choose an X100 over a proper FF DSLR, retro or not, for any other reason than convenience.
Well said, Ben.
I am so freakin' there!
Incredible to see that it doesn't require a Leica or Fuji X camera to do great street photography.
Looks like the humble, untrendy dslr can still be useful.
reedjecd: Tarting up a system with already a poor speed hunting autofocus will not induce me to spend more on lenses. l'll stick to 18/35/60. Before soliciting me to spend more fix first what's wrong and get rid of those idiotic non reversible hoods.
Would you say you're a glass-half-empty kinda guy?
Where the heck is Tokina's 70-200 f4??
It was announced over a year ago.
ConanFuji: Congratulations !
Bit of a problem for you, Conan.
Are you going to allow Ridgeback to take part in your winners-only challenges?
Perhaps you should make changes to the by-laws, stipulating that a challenge needs to have a minimum number of entries?
Surely this will help to keep the riffraff out.
A lot of unhelpful posts.
The word in English for that which is the focus of a painting or photograph is the "subject."
The host is clearly not a native English speaker and also clearly meant "female subject."
If a host can edit the challenge, then after having his mistake pointed out to him, it would be helpful for him to correct it to avoid misunderstandings, and in some cases offense, given the negative connotations involved in referring to women as "objects."
If it's not possible to edit then I'd suggest we give the host the benefit of the doubt as a non-native English speaker.
Haider: It does not looking like a photograph, it looks like a water-colour. It looks like something from Tony Hart's gallery...Disqualify
How about we disqualify you?
forpetessake: Disappointing. The kit lens is poor, noise is high, discoloration, artifacts. They should drop their X, maybe they'll get better results with Bayer sensor.
He's a joke, if that's what you mean.
Sordid: Leica. The new Apple.
Gregm61: Don't use Facebook....ever. Why anyone would waste their life spilling their thoughts, lives and pictures on Facebook is a mystery to me.
You have almost THIRTEEN THOUSAND posts to this website.
YOU are wasting your life, buddy.
BonsaiZG: What if I do not have a lens with a 2.8???
Afraid you can't enter the competition, sport.
photonius: Well, despite the advantages of dSLR, a nice print on good quality film paper should last a long time. In that time you have to keep buying new technology every few years and copy your stuff again and again if you want to save it into the future. Hopefully some new stable technology will come along. I thought CDs and DVDs would last, but seems they don't. (hard drives fail of course routinely).
Yeah, and paper is forever.
Gemini31: Could it be made clearer please if one is looking for the lavender plant only or for anything of lavender colour in nature.
It's the plant, dude.
123Mike: Why is this news? Of course, every processing program is going to add support for the various formats. All they have to do is download the specs and add it to their code. this is all just advertising,
It's a service to Aperture users who have now just been alerted about an update.
Not interested? Then don't read it.
All clear now, sport?
Pix Man: It is about time Apple released Aperture 4. The current version is old and desperately needs updating. I don't want to shift to LR but unless they shape up, we will soon have no choice.
Come on Apple!
Aperture 3.4 was a fairly major update.
Exactly what features are you missing from Aperture?
41mm: Shame on you Apple: You are designing in California and the new Mac Pro is assembled in the USA, but the also in California based Foveon Company with its 3XF Raw-Files you doesn't support. Thats not cool. But this have to be the Next Step !!
I shall always remember photograph "IMG_7188 copy."
