DSLR is a tool for a bad carpenter who tends to blame his tools.
A Reasonable and balanced camera, except Fuji dropped some of their film modes obviously for marketing reasons.
Arguably, any journalistic images have never been real. They are nothing but convenient visual tools to push publishers opinions. Journalists ONLY use the images that will support their opinion.
Now NYT is trying to confirm "our photo journalistic images are real, because those images are not digitally altered.".
I have a feeling that Olympus has the most advanced digital-optical technology.
The user should be the one who can decide if he wants to update or not. I know some professional designers who love CS3 and they don't see any reason to update.
The rant is not only from photographers community. A manager of one of the largest printing company told me this would be a disaster due to future compatibility issues.
atlien991: I can't believe this day came so soon. The pirates and torrenters defeated a billion dollar company. Open source won.
Those pirates and crackers should have been spending their time to develop open source alternative Photoshop instead of cracking it. Still not too late.
Here is my plan.
Keep using CS6 and Mountain Lion for next 5years, then move to the other software which will be more popular than CS cloud.
One question, why they do this?
I will stick to my current version, since I'm afraid all of my photoshop file wouldn't open one day when I have to cancel my subscription. Too scary to think I have to subscribe forever.
Marty4650: Those photos are really great examples of documentary work that shows us something interesting and relatively unknown to most of us. And the compositions themselves are actually pretty darn good.
I sense some real jealousy here.
This amateur photographer has had three exhibitions and has published two books. Which just goes to prove that you can't buy talent by owning the best cameras and lenses out there. You need an eye for composition and the ability to find interesting things to shoot.
I'm wondering what would have been if his camera was digital, instead of film...
And I ordered at Amazon. I believe this will be a classic.
vastoulis: In the old,pre-digital days,the following joke was common:In a photojournalism class the lecturer says, You are on the seaside and there is a man drowning in front of you.You can either jump in the water and try to save him or take an impressive picture of him drowning.The question for the class is,"What ISO film would you use?"
walter marshall: Boring video, the music is terrible and should have been left out, I am a jazz musician.
Sigh... I love Jazz but only 60-70s ones. All jazz jazz musicians I know are snobs...
rbach44: Sigma is SERIOUSLY stepping up their game as of late. The new lenses seem nothing but beautiful. If they finally got heir quality control issues of the past sorted out, the big boys will have to seriously watch their backs….
BTW if there were a full frame version I'd be preordering it now...
I heard they completely updated their quality control scheme recently. All lenses has to pass a newly developed test machine at the end of the manufacturing line.
Do I have to pay update again?
Yes, this is the size and the weight all DSLR should be. In film era, this is the standard size and weight of the 35mm SLR camera.
Current DSLRs are way to heavy.
Good example to discuss about the morality of the street photography and cheap digital film effects. Interesting, indeed.
Awful color. Beginners and lower class people usually prefer more saturated color, but this is too much. LOL.
