Artpt: Clearly a unique horse...because I see five legs. Yes, previous comments will argue that it's a tail....Nope, poor photo-shopping of a fifth leg.....
Happy snow day from the mid-west!
I will try to improve the humour as well. lol
I think the cold has affected my brain.
I think the cold has affected your brain.
The horse is outstanding, I love the frog and the rest are great.
electrophoto: welcome to the plastic styled fake world. and another useless app that should bite the dust.
But... it's true! There are a lot of ugly people who need this app.
Rick_Hunter: KEN ROCKWELL USES THIS. (enough said)
I like Ken!
A lot of people actually look "better" when their skin is turned into a barbie-style plastic garbage bag look a like.
Andystack: yes the camera does lie.
It doesn't, the photographer/software does!
Frank_BR: Leica was the THE camera of the '50s. Leica was trapped in outdated camera technology.Leica was a big name in lenses.
It's the same situation of Canon today.Canon is the Leica of twenty-first century.
I own, use and love my 1958 Leica M2. I don't think many people will be using today's Canon in 57 years time.
Canon isn't the Leica of the 21st century. Far from it.
Dave Oddie: <grammar alert>
That is ambiguous grammar.
Is that supposed to mean the camera has hardly been improved over the previous version (as in little improvement) or is a small camera that has had improvements made to it?
"Small, improved" is less ambiguous if you are going to adopt a spartan headline and use a comma instead of a "but" or an "and".
Sorry, I didn't find the grammar ambiguous at all.
I read "Little, improved" as the camera being small and improved.
Then again, English grammar is different to American grammar and from generation to generation with a mix of colloquialism and vernacularism thrown into the metaphorical bag. Ergo, being pedantic over grammar is a paradoxical oxymoron.
Oh, yeah! I think the camera is pretty good and good review!
The Lumix DMC-GF7 may flip the screen at me.
I just want to flip the bird at it.
I do wish this social media fetish would burn itself out - soon!
Just a Photographer: It does show that mobile phones are taking over a large portion of the overall camera market. But it doesn't say anything about the quality of the images taken with those phones.
I agree, it doesn't say anything about the quality. Most of the many people I know who shoot with phones are young and just don't care about image quality.
Jennyhappy2: Why??? Should have called it the XQ1.1
or maybe XQ1.01
I was going to write something really sarcastic, but IF classic chrome sim IS the only difference it's not worthy of sarcasm so I am going to be cynical instead.
If the difference between the XQ1 and XQ2 is one solitary film sim that Fuji is pretty bloody pathetic.
Ah! I forgot - Refresh an 'old' camera by giving it a new model number and the most negligible 'upgrade'. A new model number means new sales and cash for Fuji. Ooops! There's the cynicism!
Wonderful picture. Love it.
I have four cameras. A Fujifilm S5 Pro (2007), Samsung NX100 (2010), a Leica M2 (1958) and a Rolleiflex 2.8C (1953).
I am perfectly happy with my cameras and have no need to 'upgrade'.
Personally, I found the article relevant and interesting.
Definitely HOT! Great image.
deep7: It's actually quite nice to see this "record" temporarily being held by one of the world's great landscape photographers and for such a fine image. He isn't just a very good photographer but is very fussy about print quality and talented at marketing (obviously!!).
Recently, this record was held by one of the blandest photographers I've ever "seen", a photoshopped image of a river bank. That was much harder to comprehend.
I should note that an internet reproduction will only ever give us a general idea of what the image looks like in the flesh. I'll bet this one is a stunner. It's a bit like seeing a real Constable painting, compared to one on a place mat or biscuit tin. No comparison at all!
@b craw and deep7
Aww, I feel a group hug coming on.
@ b craw
Beautifully scathing - I love it.
