Shiranai: I don't get why they're releasing their interesting lenses just for uncommon systems like Sony and Fuji X. Makes no sense...

LOL Sony never said such a thing and I think you're confused some. EF mount lenses will work on E mount. No where any place did Sony say they are ending E mount design so I have no idea where you are getting this from. It would be front page news here on dpreview if that was the case.

On Sony launches support program for pro photographers article (114 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marty4650: The FF SLT users will appreciate this, but I get the feeling this was designed for the Alpha 7 users. The 7 series is getting some serious traction now, and Sony is smart to add professional support.

I hope Nikon and Canon are paying attention. Sony is making a move on their turf!

Stu, so many pro landscape shooters have gone to the A7 it's insane, these are people who once shot Canikon. It's serious traction where it's very much needed.

Sony E mount isn't dead & I have no idea where you got that info from but it's far from the truth, obviously.

On Flickr introduces Wall Art printing service article (23 comments in total)

Flickr needs to start letting people sell their works to the general public at large. This whole "no commercial" thing is absolutely back in the stone age.

On Flickr launches image marketplace initiative post (37 comments in total)

OK I am intrigued! I want more details though about the terms and what not and royalty % before coming to a conclusion. I also think it's high time flickr starts partnering with some big time photo labs and allows photographers to actually sell prints through their site. The time has come. Enough with the "commercial" aspect BS. Even linking to your own website where you sell prints can get you in trouble on there. Stupid is as stupid does.

Johannes Zander: Act of Genocide!
Oh now, since it was the US it must be an humanitarian act of libaration in the name of freedom.

Way to go off on a political rant on a photography website /smh

EssexAsh: "photographer Art Wolfe has built perhaps one of the strongest brands in his field."

Who? Guess his brand could be better. Whoever he is.

LOL Seriously? You've never heard of Art Wolfe? He's one of the most famous photographers of our time and has been for quite some time now. Go watch his TED talk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Vo9BqV0x2o

deviantART has been doing this roughly for 2 years now with both a RM and RF structure. You can actually upload your own contract and everything and you set the price. It's pretty slick.

iAPX: Adobe's award too, juding of the huge presence of photoshopped photos (some seems to are real photography, but it's a minority!)

hate to tell you but everything is run through Photoshop and I grantee ya that pretty much every single one of these photos was shot in RAW. "Real photography"? Unless you are shooting a Polaroid, real photography in your eyes has never existed. Even during the age of film, Kodachrome & Velvia which saturated colors existed. Ansel himself edited his images extensively in the darkroom. The camera is incapable of capturing the dynamic range of what the human eye sees....editing your images is not only fundamental but required in the digital age if you don't want to have something that looks like it was taken at the family BBQ on a Sunday

On Sony Alpha 7R Review preview (813 comments in total)
In reply to:

mvmv: Reviewer forgot importance of AF. A7r has the worst AF in FF world (- RX1). In conclusion it should had been pointed that camera is not for sport, action or low light.

I hate to tell ya but it most certainly is for low light, so much so that many shooters who specialize in dark night sky photography have switched to the A7r

On 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months article (591 comments in total)

It all depends on what you shoot in the end. For wildlife subjects, obviously the Fuji is a no go. Mirrorless is awesome but it lacks the focal length of dslr's for things like sports and wildlife. I have yet to see any long exposure star shots done with the system though I am sure it is out there

JC999: Any opinions on how it compares to Zenfolio?

Been with zenfolio for years and love it & they haven't screwed their customers like smugmug has either with price increases.

thomas2279f: You could pick up a Nikon version I/II new or second hand plus a good body like D300s/D800,etc plus some other Nikon lens gems and still have change...

lol Because pro level glass produces average image quality? Come on, I don't shoot either Nikon or Canon and know a fanboy comment when I see it

Yes because what the world needs is more people like Welly who don't know the difference between tone mapping and HDR :|
