On Sigma announces dp1 Quattro article (199 comments in total)

This article should be listed under the Weird Camera News. So that thingy is a mirrorless solution to DSLR's viewfinder ?

Monkey selfie, Mr. Slater claimed it was a monkey selfie, as in the monkey pressed the shutter button, end of story as to who was the photographer.

Rocky Mtn Old Boy: The monkey cannot own the copyright, so in all likelihood, it falls to Slater - though given the nature of his recent behaviour, does not deserve it. I think the one thing we can all agree on, is that Wikimedia doesn't have it. Slater is the closest thing to an owner and since he PP'd and posted the photos, he likely has the right to ask them to take the images down.

He's a knob for doing so... but ultimately has the right.

" I think the one thing we can all agree on, is that Wikimedia doesn't have it. "

No, not everyone is agreeing with your point.

120 to 35: The photos are conceptual art.

Copyright belongs to the artist. In conceptual art, the artist does not usually create the work himself. He provides the concept, gets his associates to produce the work, and presents the end results as his work. The photographer is the conceptual artist who made the monkey take the pictures with his camera. He therefore owns the copyright.

"The photographer is the conceptual artist who made the monkey take the pictures with his camera."

No he did not make the monkey take the photographs, the monkey was handling the camera and accidentally took many images(100 or so) that were worthless and this one by chance. Sorry I'm a facts guy and many post here have false "facts" including yours.

From Huffington Post article: He added that he believes Wikipedia editors, most of whom are volunteers, "have a communistic view of life."

"It's potentially being run by people with political agendas," Slater said of Wikipedia. "The people who are editing it could be a new Adolf Hitler or a new Stalin ... They're using whatever suits their agenda."

He urged people to stop using Wikipedia. "It's important to tell people that Wikipedia should be not used as a source of truth," he said.

I'm sort of speechless.

IMHO the real monkey is the author, so Wiki is correct. My 0.02 cents.

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1530 comments in total)

D810 will be a great DSLR, just be aware you need good glass, need to use good camera handling in order to get the best out of the 36.3MP sensor. The ultra resolution will be diminished by low shutter speed if not mounted on a tripod if you break the one over focal leanth-shutter rule or VR lens isn't used.

Here is a great article on diffraction by Thom Hogan http://www.dslrbodies.com/accessories/camera-accessories/nikon-d800-accessories/d800-lens-sets.html

RadPhoto: Apple only cares about products related to iPhone.

Gee, iPhone support only huh? This reply written on iMacBook Pro, late 2013 model, w/5.18million pixel retina screen, 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 proc. with 6MB shared L3 cache, 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3L onboard memory, 512GB PCIe-based flash storage, Intel Iris Pro Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M with 2GB of GDDR5 memory and automatic graphics switching, USB 3, Thunderbolt 2, 4k HDMI support, . . . . I'd say they are still kicking Bluescreen of death PC's with Mac/OS X development !

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2970 comments in total)

The latest version gets fractionally fewer shots out of it: 320 according to CIPA standard testing. This drops to just 230 if you use the electronic viewfinder - something worth being aware of, when you use the camera.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2300 comments in total)

Kudos to Leica, they designed a benchmark camera. I won't be buying one for various reasons, but to those that do buy it, enjoy it, no jealousy or hate from me. The GUI is very modern and minimalist.
