peacefrog33756: I might be missing something here, but these look like typical Instagram-like images that lack an objective. Sorry, DPR, but there's really no imagination nor creativity here. I've seen 8-10 year-olds who can do so much better with greater spontaneity. "Thought-provoking," hardly, DPR.
Essentially, Professor, you are telling some of us what to like and why to like it. I perused your images and must say your William Eggleston-like images are great, but your fabricated images are much less appealing much like this student's work you so adamantly defend.

Very enjoyable and well done.
misolo: Is it just because I'm tired right now or is this is very unpleasant to watch? Could be a very cool effect, but it felt dizzying to the point of nausea.
IMHO, the Zandrak is much more compelling artistically and technically.
A200Eric: How is that BS? If Walmart didn't exist where would these people be working? They must have scars from the guns that are being held to their heads to be forced to work there.
Until the pseudo Marxists like yourself finally kill what was the greatest country in the world, we still have freedom of personal choice. I just really don't understand what is so attractive about an all powerful centralized government making all of the choices for you. Forcing mediocrity for all and punishing hard work and success. I want to live where anyone and everyone has the opportunity to be successful regardless of how they define it. That however is all but dead and it's not because of Walmart or the Koch brothers.
You missed something. Haven't lived in anybody's basement since the early 70's after Vietnam. Have an M.S. degree and a Ph.D. in chemistry. Have been retired from a full professorship at a leading university. just shows you just don't know to whom you are speaking, Eric. Now, take your political philosophy and camera gear and go take a few photos. I have no time for idiots!
After Eric's work day, he gets back in his car for the ride home, and turns on a radio talk show. The radio host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn't mention that the beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day.
Eric agrees: "We don't need those big-government liberals ruining our lives! After all, I'm a self-made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have."
Your concept of success is not the "success" of most people. Have you ever talked with Wally workers? Have you ever worked, even for a day, at a Wally store? Don't give me your BS about finding other jobs!
Certainly not jealous of the money-grubbing, power mentality of your ilk. Hate to walk around with the burden of knowing I am a true American "success." LOL!
The Waltons and Koch brothers love you!
Alice Walton is worth over 34 billion. Probably wants those family photographs in a feeble attempt to protect her image after her well known and highly publicized bouts with alcoholism and DUI's.
Fake, fake, fake! Do your homework, DPR! By keeping these up, DPR is condoning the torture and cruelty of living things to achieve a photographic end. The means do not justify the end result. Shame on you, DPR!
To gain a greater appreciation of these winners' talents and photographic insights, visit the link to the Sony World Photography Awards site above. Some of these are absolutely excellent. It is well worth the effort.
A little disappointed. Was looking forward to better DR, detail. Seems to me the overall IQ is just a tad behind the first G1X.
I was saddened to hear this. RIP, Anja. Your work lives on.
"Inspire strong feelings...?" Here's a strong feeling for you, DPR: you are going downhill fast!
The only photos in this entire gallery that are decent were shot at 4.0 and up. F/2.0 to 4.0 are pretty deplorable. Thanks for saving my wallet!
Many thanks for a very helpful and informative article.
I am interested in this camera and hope Samsung USA will follow suit.
For what it is and for the particular Challenge, it deserves the win. Not really my thing, but whatever...
