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

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.
