magneto shot: LCD'less is one of my wish list. My other was setting a possible shots of only 36,64,128. Limitations such as these gives u all the glory and film shooting experience, makes u a better photographer definitely without the fuss of film development.

its should be built in, maybe not even requiring SDcard. just limit it by the built in memory for the said 36,64,128.
@iudex, u can say all u want about self imposing limits, if that works, we would have all been perfect creature built upon layers and layers of perfect habits by choice. Fact is, we aint. Try doing what u wrote there and go for a shooting event, see if u can resist those parameters imposed by urself.

RStyga: To complete the joke we need the price:
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1083146-REG/leica_10779_m_typ_240_edition.html

$18.5K

To be fair, I have to admit that it is a beautiful choice of design and materials, though, for a collectible.

technology is not everything, some folks appreciates craftmanship and better forms. tools have the tendency to inspire even if the result might not be anything. Quirks yes, but u can't fault leica for having the balls to come up with something different and yet profit from it. Imho, we need more sony and leica types of manufacturers than nikon and canon.

gives me a very dated feeling looking at it. something like g10 or so. sometimes the form needs to be inspirational. learn from leica.

Mauro.B: I hope they nailed auto white balance, as in my M240 it is still the weakest link. And offer exposure compensation on the back dial, too.

Well, considering that 99,999% of Edition 60's will spend their life behind glass, my comment is totally useless.

the whitebalance on xvario is pretty accurate, in fact, probably the most accurant WB i ever tried on any system. Wondered why that was never carried to the M level.

On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (729 comments in total)

oh yeah, another gear with projectile GAS infector, luckily i still feel more inspired shooting the GW690II brick. It doesn't have 8 frames per seconds, but it does do 8 frames per roll.

they should hire me for the camera part.
Faster autofocus would not make any sense unless it can track the subject for video. As of now, its already fast for normal photos shoot, doubling the AF means nothing.

Some suggestions on Iphone 7
- Swipe-able lens, eg 21 mm -> 35 -> 85
Just swipe the lens behind and u get a diff focal length. 21 would do well not just on landscape but on selfie/group. It has natural slimming distortion.

- Infrared photography - nothing is more mind boggling than providing a simple feature to expand the user's creativity. Infrared is easy to implement on cameras and should be built in

Apple, call me ok - marcuslowphoto@yahoo.com ;-)

Ian M.B.: What a JOKE!

The world has gone crazy! The photo wouldn't exist without the photographer setting it all up on his equipment then encoraging the macaque to press the shutter. . It's definitely his shot and all copyright should be HIS. . . If not his then whose?

I repeat myself. . What a JOKE!

should have used film. the photographer develop it.

magneto shot: these photos became popular because :
- the claim that the monkey stole the camera and took the images. for some reason while this notion was propagated back then, Slater didnt dispute it?

Now that wiki uses that loophole to challenge copyright, suddenly i am reading website article by the author that he setup the scene and allowed the monkey to play with the cameras.

Moral of the story. Careful how u want to spread the news, it could backfire

the earliest publicatio, dailymail for eg, where did they get the story and why was it not disputed

In reply to:

Jarda_Houdek: This is it? I shoot DNG-RAW with my Lumia 1020 and for certain areas of photography it is a great tool. With the right processing the pictures can look like being shot with a real camera, even large prints look great.

But this set just doesn't proof the point of neither the DNG, nor the low noise or high resolution. It looks like another instagramed iPhone shots.

iphone have colors

magneto shot: actually many vintage lens can do this at a much cheaper cost and not looking so strange.
Example of swirls i consider beautiful on portraits, minolta 1.7 55 mm

i do appreciate flaws and imperfectness in rendering vs the same creamy bokeh in anybody's modern lens. obviously putting up a strange looking form in a modern camera is a bit too awkward for me. lovely results though
