EssexAsh: "Sony might bring curved-sensor technology to smartphone"

Just the one? or is your grammar appauling.

No worse than your spelling...

km25: What about the sickle? I saw an interview of the Russian who rased the flag. The thing I remember the most was, why did the American and English troop have nice clean uniforms, cartons of cigarets. And the Americans had rolls of money. Did we not also win the war? The peole of Russia leared how they were being taken.

Nice production and music. Some are very old, but still good.

Samuel Dilworth: Paving the path to subscription-only Lightroom, as feared …

I long for the old days of selling something the customer wants at a fair price. Why is this model so untenable?

String --you started the exaggeration (and condescension) with your non-answer to the OP.

stevens37y: What about using a tripod?

Probably the most overwritten piece of snark I've read this week, gray....

“The effect is unexpected but unarguably contemporary.”
Marketing double-speak at its finest ;^)

Amnon G: Fun doesn't have to be practical and art doesn't have to make sense to everyone. I'm personally the engineer type and don't do such things but it looks like they had fun. And the results are great, and I personally don't care whether Photoshop was involved or not.
Kuddos!

I must be getting old -I remember when engineer types were exactly the ones that did these things...:-\

Smeggypants: All the people criticising this fun exercise must be "really fun at parties" - NOT!!

mirkoc: I like:
new 'highlight-weighted' metering option (to preserve highlight detail in contrasty scenes)

Because 'pros never shoot jpg' fox? How many pros do you know?

In reply to:

stratplaya: Is Kodak still "Kodak"? I wonder if the company sold the brand the same way Polaroid did.

I, for one, am thoroughly confused, now.

In reply to:

TheChefs: For those who don't know, this is shot on Kodak Aerochrome or EIR. Same stuff really. It's very rare this days, since it's been long discontinued and it's heat sensitive. The prices on ebay are ridiculously high and it's not guaranteed to work, since it's heat sensitive.

The film can be used with filters to block other spectrums and it will give different colours/results.

I remember it as Aero Infrared Ektachrome. I shot two rolls in the Grand Canyon, ca1968, in High School. Amazing suff.

In reply to:

Paul Storm: those images are heavily post processed. look at the contrast on their faces, the quality of light is different. Also the guy in the back is too far back in perspective compared to the leaves in which he is standing. unbelievable!! these guys were pasted in.

You've clearly never shot color IR film.

On Portfolio: Photography student Luke Evans article (172 comments in total)
In reply to:

DaveE1: His "work has garnered a lot of attention in the past couple of years"...

I'm not surprised. Popular sites, such as DPReview, are posting his photos on their sites for no other reason than others seem to be posting his photos too. Nothing attracts a crowd quite like a crowd.

I wish I hadn't thrown away all my old photos that I thought were too bland. I could have been on this page :-)

"but some of it smacks as art for arts sake, "
Katy, bar the door!

In reply to:

Marty4650: "Well your long, nightmarish wait is over."

Whoever wrote that line has a great sense of humor, and an even greater sense of sarcasm.

Good job!

Nice to see someone familiar with the difference between irony and sarcasm.

Just because amazon dont sell it so you cant provide a click through doesn't mean you have to make facetious comments. DPR used to be a quite respected site.

"By dpreview staff"
And you dont even have the balls to stand by your comments.

Sniff...

In reply to:

chillgreg: Mommy!!! DPR reviewed a SAMSUNG!!! :'( MOMMYYYYYYY!!!! :'(

"On an international site such as this it is wise to check the nationality of a poster before firing off a broadside, as something might just have been lost in translation."
So there's no responsibility of the OP to notify the reader of the humorous intent of the post...on an international site?
You refer to sarcasm, btw, irony has a much more narrow definition, and the term gets constantly misused these days.

On Sony announces pricing and availability for Alpha 7S article (131 comments in total)
In reply to:

Petroglyph: Sony is running with the FE mount cams! They'll release the 16-35 OSS and fast prime soon I bet. Esp. since Canon is releasing theirs (16-35) with identical stats. They're feeling a little competition perhaps?

"The secondhand market has a lot of A7 and A7r cameras available which have been traded back in for Canons and Nikons. Now this is not huge numbers trading back in but it is the highest level for a camera that has been out for such a short time."
And you have a link for these facts? Especially the last one?

On National Park Service bans drones in Yosemite article (170 comments in total)
In reply to:

Roland Karlsson: As I write below - the worst thing in scenic and interesting places are tourists. The next worst thing is all tourist adaptations of the scenic places. The third worst thing is digital cameras. Film cameras were OK, they were not used constantly by thousands of totally incompetent tourists that is in the way everywhere and demand that their wives and daughters and friends shall stand in front of the object of scenic value. Cars and roads and tourist buses! I forgot those. Ugly!

Drones. Yeah ... it is actually a good idea for a serious photographer. You can take some really nice pictures with one of those, with some planning and some skills. But ... of course ... if everyone and their dogs fly around with noisy drones everywhere ...

Life is a bitch! And in particular tourists.

Sounds like you need an uninhabited island.
