Papi61: So, the "generation selfie" will now have selfie "stamps" all over their body. Just when you thought nothing could top their narcissism...
There's nothing wrong with beings narcissistic . At least it's not as bad as stifling creative freedom!
Stuart001: Is it just me, or is this perhaps the single most stupid, simple-minded, muddle-headed, narcissistic idea ever invented?
What are you, 100 years old?
Matt Kolberg: Greedy S.O.B. is Mr. Rentmeester. Let Nike build the substantial worth with this image and then go after them when it's worth a ton? It wasn't worth a few bucks to sue back then, but now it's worth so much more. "I might as well get my fair share now". Despicable.
...Nike earned the money, he didn't.
...because he didn't earn it. You must be a liberal looking for his 'fair share'?
Can you imagine the outrage in the horse forums when the car was introduced?
f8BeThereToo: Anyone who thinks that this news has an "upside" is simply deluding themselves... and likely never worked a single day as a freelance photographer.
This is just another example of the abandonment of the American worker in favor of owners, management and shareholders. What amazes me is that many younger people are OK with what is happening; if American labor history was taught in public schools they would probably have a very different viewpoint.
We are returning to the Bad Ol' Days before the Great Depression when workers were at the mercy of employers. It's fashionable to denigrate unions and government regulation but they created the foundation of the American Dream: reasonable work hours and pay, health insurance and financial security when a person is no longer able to work.
Look at what the SI photographers have "gained": less pay, a doubling of employment taxes and having to cover business expenses, health insurance and retirement. Great for SI, bad for the photographers.
Are you trying out your diatribe for the next socialist workers rally?
Alphoid: I don't quite get the concept of buying off-brands for >$1000. Most Tamron lenses I've owned only lasted a few years (three out of three have developed issues of some sort), while only one of my other lenses has ever had an issue (one Sony-Zeiss had an AF motor issue). Tamron is well-known to have no useful support. I view Tamrons as basically a consumable/disposable product, and that really suggests maybe $500 as an upper bound; perhaps $750 for an f/2.8 zoom.
If I've got $1200 to spend, I'd rather get an f/4, or a little less zoom, or whatever, but get something that I don't have to worry about breaking. Canon. Nikon. New Sigma. Tokina. Sony. Pentax. Leica, Zeiss, Panasonic. Etc. Not Tamron, Opteka, Vivitar, etc.
OEM lenses have just as many issues. Don't kid yourself that they are somehow better quality because you paid for the name.
The comments in this section go from funny to bizarre... But mostly just bizarre.
ThatCamFan: So basicly its for the self-obsessed, good to know.
Thatcamfan, that's for a totally different situation and type of shooting. Why do old people only think one way?
So you are aloud to take pictures of any other subject except yourself? Let me guess, you are an old geezer?
whyamihere: I like the adorable grumpiness and lack of awareness of the anti-selfie, anti-social media crowd. It's as if nobody in the history of the world ever photographed (or painted, or sketched) a self-portrait, published that picture in a public location for all to see (like an art gallery, or an online portfolio), or shared their photos with friends and family (photo albums, 35mm slide shows).
It's not narcissism. It's the same thing as before, just in a form you're all uncomfortable with because you don't know how it works.
Marty, those photos beat bird photo's any day of the week.
Another m43 with that 16 mp sensor. Innovative.
LiSkynden: I dont believe it... again another stupid selfie LCD camera! First every camera brand ditched the good old vari-angle screen and now everyone puts on this stupid selfie LCD???
They have their smart phones for that. They dont buy bulky cameras with selfie LCD, helloo!
Yes THEY do. Why do you think everyone who takes selfies is a teenage girl? Old people are just the worst.
aris14: No matter if this or any other camera offering an easy way for selfy pix have the best IQ ever or whatever whatsoever...Selfies is the depiction of an ill egoism and selfism thus depicting the problems of a rather significantly ill culture... Or should I say civilization..?
I take pictures of myself with my kids for selfies, as it's the only way I'll ever be in a picture with them for posterity. Yep, the end of civilization. Think outside the box old man.
JoePhoto: I think these are terrible images ... (not the cameras fault) !!!
Were they shot by a 2-year old ???
The WIRE in the sunset shot ??? give me a break
Are you judging the camera or the photographer? For comedy, you can't beat DPR comment sections.
Wow, when you say hands on, you mean literally. You used to get a story, now you just get to see the hands?
Has Fuji just given up on modern video specs?
mpgxsvcd: They are taking all of their toys and going home like a petulant child.
If I were you, I consider using your inner monologue before sharing the thoughts of a 5 year old with the adult world.
You have to be brave to post an article to this group of hyenas. It's like serving cold soup at an senior center.
Everyone must be furious at the price they paid to subscribe to this site and then not learn anything because you can't teach experts new tricks.
Biological_Viewfinder: What I like about this particular article is that there is *NO BOKEH*.
I'm absolutely sick of bokeh, and I think it's for people who either can't find an interesting background or they just don't give a $*(@. Whatever the reason, 99% of the pictures I see with bokeh are broken.
AND SOOOOO IT SHALL BE WRITTEN! I love people who dis any style of art they don't like and label it as something derogatory.
