fuego6: With the new cameras... this is becoming increasingly easy to accomplish.. instant focus and auto-rifle like capture. Just slam the shutter, take 40 photos and cull and enjoy after the fact. Same for milk drops now... no need to expensive equipment and triggered shutter releases... just jam the shutter button and review the results. Love technology!
Regardless of gear he did a great job with these images.
Gear helps but an eye is worth far more.
lukx: Can you be honest and at the end of article mention that it was sponsored by Apple?
As a Pro working on location , I can tell you that a computer just being reliable is a bigger point than any features sometimes. Build quality and Apple support make the entire package worthwhile.I left the PC culture years ago as as it was a pain in the rear. Try taking pics rather that go for the lowest denominator, its not a computer forum!
Richard Murdey: Now I'm curious. Has anyone every seen a Leica S2 in the wild? Outside of a store.
I have not, but then that's really not surprising. I imagine these are used by fashion journalists or something like that, where cheaper medium format camera like the 645D/Leaf would be considered too bulky. Though even there I can't help but wonder if a Canon 5DmkIII would serve just as well.
In short, who actually uses these cameras?
3systermuser has a rather uniformed reply there are plenty of pro's using the "S' series leica as its a great alternative to the "H" series.Speaking as a pro in London I am really pleasantly surprised how many people are using them and the great support here including rental for extra bits.
so what if I want to go "off grid" with my mac......now I have to be wired in full time for Adobe.....I don't think so. Get with the program Adobe , we don't like it and we have a choice !
I am a Pro and I am walking as will many others.
Adobe has lost the plot, with ALL photographers , hobbyist or Pro.
The next twelve months or so will be very interesting when other company's will rise to the challenge and they will.
existing layered files too are not an excuse to stay with the new Adobe model!
xiod_crlx: nice price! well done!
I don't think so Leica...............I don't see a great legacy of Leica zoom lenses, especial a lens that slow . This seems to be very out of touch !
A baby "M" was what I would like to see.......oh thats a Sony !
come on Apple how about Aperture is it dead in the water or is it supported ?I am not getting that warm cosy feeling of Apple support that I am used to !
Ken Johnes: "To achieve the studio-like lighting,"- what studio like lighting?, this simply looks like on board flash in use.
" Tergo has rigged his Chevy Silverado" - what about reg num , colour and year of manufacturing too ? ;-)
" with two high-powered strobes" - wow!!!!! that´s a very valuable info, there .
" powered by twin 4000W generators in the truckbed."- i thoiught his car was running on Gas :-)
" Inside, a Canon EOS-1D Mark IV is connected to a laptop, and triggered by a Pocket Wizard."
- well, it better be, otherwise he might get his Chevy in trouble.
" Tergo has a dashboard-mounted iPhone for reviewing his shots via onboard Wi-Fi. "- you fotgot the provider and the iphone version and the wifi bandwidth !! ;-)
On a normal day, Tergo claims to take '40 to 50' shots. - i thought he only shoots under the cover of dark, at NIGHT ;-))
pathetic DPR. pathetic !!.
not enough great results for effort....is he staying in the car for protection ?
I think Ken Johnes is quite correct in his comments.
dengx: Somehow I don't think it is a good news.
I agree not good new for professionals !
Paul Guba: Yes open to everyone! That way every artist can work for nearly nothing and not get paid. We all can give up any rights to our work. Thank you Intel: multinational company with billions in capital for finding a way to encourage artist to work for nothing.
Mr Longman, you are right one does not need to enter this harsh competition.Complaints can also be seen as caution to those that do not realize their rights are being compromised by a wealthy multinational............
vhlemos: What about the rest of the world? Aren´t we not good enough for Intel? Why only USA residents and Canadian people?This is totally unfair.
Mr Brushfire, there are two issues here ...one is the geographical eligibility of entry which is the lesser issue and the more important being a rights grab ! This "legal issue" can be avoided as people are being warned in good faith by the photo community NOT to enter as the rules are draconian and do not benefit the entrant even for the experience of it.......that is not ridiculous
Eyeort...you need to get out more, this competition is nothing but an image grab by a multinational company.
It will get joe and mary normal to enter and steal their creative rights !
shame on you DP review for promoting such flagrant theft and exploitation of the photographic community.
As for Intel...........well I would expect such lowbrow ethics !
Joe Ogiba: I paid $72 at Newegg for a 1TB WD USB 3.0 ext portable HDD last October so it looks like the floods really killed the low prices on WD HDDs. They need to come out with Thunderbolt versions for people with Apple computers .
and the Thunderbolt port is where ?
Cailean Gallimore: I'm seeing the same thing on some images produced by my X100. It's not happening very often, and it's not as noticeable, but it's there. Easy to handle in pp. Maybe an update for the X100 is needed too...
I think the X100 needs a serious update....lovely files .......IF THEY ARE IN FOCUS........as I battled thro' Fuji's development it would be fab if Fuji were to come clean. Would I ever buy another fuji product.................... not today !
