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

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.

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

On Little beauty: Nordin Seruyan's macro images article (352 comments in total)
In reply to:

DStudio: I think people are misunderstanding which ethics are important here. The treatment of the animals - while important - is a red herring. The real ethical issue is of deceiving viewers by making up stories, telling them that these fabricated pictures are journalistic in nature. Nordin used these tricks to become more popular, allowing these stories to remain in the popular press for years before saying anything.

Now that he's published a preponderance of similar images - too many to be coincidental and naturally occurring - he's got a new story. We can only presume that his "new truth" is in fact half-truths.

There is a story about a boy making stories about the wolf. When the real wolf came, nobody in the village believes him.
the moral of the story is...

let's see a 1" sensor in this hybrid...then we'll talk. With the growing numbers of bigger sensors in the market, people are used to much higher quality photos than compact 1/2.3 sensor.

Please retire 1/2.33 from all cameras in all forms. That format been milking the public for way too long.

color rocks. i am never a big fan of B&W, i believe its important to get color so that future viewers would know what color was the things present in the frame.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2298 comments in total)

Reading specs is not photography. Using it is. There are many things to love about leica, despite the prices.
1. DNG files, fully supported by Adobe. No inferior worries about when your raw files will be supported correctly
2. Build that echoes quality. Its hard to be inspired holding a plastic. M, X2, Xvario feels solid to the brim. T indication only seems to be better.
3. Lenses of stellar quality.

M /range finder is dated and doing middle composition and recompose is getting sillier by the day, but its lens lives on. T shows Leica is willing and able to break its own mould and move forward while setting example.

What innovation has canon and nikon did for the last 3 years? nothing. Half baked EOS-M and Nikon 1 are junks in comparison to what Leica is doing now.
Nikon DF? they forgot the dials are supposed to make things more convenient, not confusing.
Let there be light
