On article Hungarian law bans photos taken without consent (321 comments in total)

Knee-jerk reactionary outcome from a "we-didn't-think-it-through" thought process. Clearly, all that is needed is to require all published media have signed model releases for all photographers submitted photos. Something every other country in the free world does already. Oh. I forgot. Hungary is one those Soviet Bloc satellite states.

On article 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months (595 comments in total)

I love my Nikon D600 and the various lenses. But my walk around camera is my Fuji X-Pro1 with the 18mm f/2. Lightweight and unobtrusive. I looked at that Nikon recently and thought to myself how much better it would look sitting on a tripod instead of my shoulder.

Obviously, the whole firmware update was cancelled. I waited to update until 3.01 came out and my camera wouldn't recognize it, saying my 2.05 version was up to date. Frustrating and a complete waste of time. What was Fuji thinking?

As long as he is taking pictures of a anyone on a public right of way, there is no reasonable expectation of privacy, from a legal viewpoint. I like street photography and environmental portraiture. This style is just way to in your face for me. Much better to talk to people and get there permission. Otherwise, they think you are spying on them.

I love photography and my cameras. But, at some point I would have been using my high dollar Nikon as a brick upside that punks head. No way would I busy myself shooting pictures while some macho punk is beating on a woman. If anybody wants to volunteer info that that girl "disrespected" him and asked for a beating, then he/she needs counseling.

On article Samyang announces 24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC lens (73 comments in total)

Looking at the picture of the lens, I see an analog depth of field scale normally used on the old film camera manual focus lenses. Is this lens auto-focus or manual?
