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!

electrophoto,

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!

On Canon's Q4 earnings report shows camera sales are down article (315 comments in total)
In reply to:

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Leica was trapped in outdated camera technology.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.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 Review preview (446 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dave Oddie: <grammar alert>

Little, Improved

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".

</grammar alert>

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!

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 flips for selfies article (388 comments in total)

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!

In reply to:

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.

On Fujifilm releases XQ2 premium compact article (60 comments in total)

Jennyhappy2: Why??? Should have called it the XQ1.1

or maybe XQ1.01

On Fujifilm releases XQ2 premium compact article (60 comments in total)

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!

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1457 comments in total)

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.

In reply to:

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.
