viktoriskra: "We've all been there - your friend Carl is over by the fridge, getting some ice, and there you are with an expensive new Carl Zeiss lens, and you're describing it to someone, and Carl keeps saying 'What? What did you say? Do you want ice?' It's confusing."
This is the pinnacle of journalism.
Lordy. Lighten up. The writers are not journalist. You are mixing up this site with the NYT or San Jose Mercury.
Erez Marom thank you for your wonderful article. I do not use PS but might in the future. It great that you spent the time to intricately explain your work. Negative Nancy's will voice their opinions about this and that, ignore them. It's your image, you witness it first hand and your eyes saw the magical scene. Thanks once again.
Sticking it to the middle class.
Do Leica owners have enough room in their closets for another one ?
(Just kidding) (well sort of half kidding)
Ireland, photographs, lots of photographs, nice. Thanks for the excellent write up and images. Must be amazing in person. Would be awesome to do it with a group amateur photographers.
One of the reasons I'm hanging on to the X100 and not buying a XTran sensor X camera from Fuji. If I do get one it will be the nex gen X-Pro, then I will see if Aperature is A keeper or another SW needs buying.
Wiyum: The judge ruled properly in this case. There is no confusing the editions and it seems that artists have every right to produce multiple editions of the same work, as long as one cannot be confused from the other (such as would be deceptive).
But more to the point, I'm surprised that no one is mentioning how canny Sobel was in this regard. He likely understands the nuance of the editioning here. But, by bringing this suit, he made a somewhat landmark decision in terms of photographic copyright case law. He not only owns one of the 20 dye-sub prints that were the basis of this landmark suit, providence will show that he owns the specific dye sub print upon which this decision was based.
Copyright law is forever changed by this suit. And Sobel owns the print that set the precedent. The dye sub prints had value before this suit, but Sobel's print, as a part of American legal history, is now extraordinarily valuable.
My guess? Sobel's much, much better off than if he'd won the suit.
Wiyum you made a great point. Sobel also added value to his entire collection, that numbers 190.
Scottish Kev: Forgive me if this has already been covered but I spent a long time looking for a backpack that would carry camera gear and hiking gear, as when you are out in the wilds you dont have "just" your camera gear and then wear everything else. This bag like many out there only does camera gear.
Why dont more bag manufacturers actually design bags to carry camera gear and personal gear.
Oh and I did find a 1 or maybe 2 manufacturers who do what I think is a sensible back pack for hiking/carrying personal gear and I bought one but it was stupidly expensive (such is this camera/hobby/addiction ah well) but it does an awesome job!
Have alook at this backpack/camera case combo. Mindshift Gear I believe they are related to Think Tank.http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/134466492/rotation180-photo-backpack
This new technology can/might be a game changer. It's "HDR" abilities will create some great looking images in a PnS or smartphone.
Journalist have been busted as plagiarist more often now, thanks to Google. Heck even two consecutive German heads of education have resigned because of plagiarist Doctoral thesis & the like. So it's not surprising this photographer staged this photo and gave false narrative about it.
Oh gee this will make the North Koreans jealous and set off another nuke.
jnk: just curious - why would DPR provide firmware notice for the D4/users and yet - the camera has not been review?
You mean would be owners might find it useful. I'd like to read the review of a camera I can't afford, but can dream of owning.
Check out my avatar. That gaze with those eyes, beautiful muted color of the rest ogf the image..
facedodge: To those worried about reduced stiffness, I can confirm as a structural engineer, that this is less stiff but probably stiff enough..
The determining factor is the "moment of inertia". The formula for a tube is I=1/2M(R1^2+R2^2) (where M is mass and R is radius)
The formula for the Y section is more complex, but as you see in the example above, the larger the radius and mass, the greater the moment of inertia and the stronger your tube is. It appears that about 2/3rds of the section is closer to the center with maybe an average of 1/3 the radius closer. This would mean 1/3 of the section is unchanged. 2/3rds of the section has 33% less moment.
Boiling this down... it's 1/3 +2/3*(1-1/3)=.778
So it's about 77.8% as strong as the tube shape... This of course could easily be corrected by increasing the gauge of the aluminum.
Thanks for your scientific input. My amateur assessment would have given the new shape more "strength". That' of course is based on my pure speculation, not scientific. I have a question of aluminum alloys, can a "better" allow create a stronger new shape?
I like this. Sure it's not perfect but what aftermarket product is. Heck look at Nikon's product for the D4, it's way expensive and limited to that unit. I'm happy both my DSLRs are on the list. Bet once they update/upgrade the SW that more functions will be available.
offertonhatter: Very nice camera. I liked the original but never bought one. however a few photo friends did, and love the X100. I might be tempted to get one now, especially as the results of the "mk1" look stunning! Mind you so do the X-Pro1 and XE-1 models which yet another friend has both.I think Fuji really have found their niche, great design, great performance and well made cameras. All of the X series of cameras appeal (even the XS-1 to some extent)
You're on point, Fujifilm does have a great many cameras that are retro in style but loaded with cutting edge technology. I expect many other companies to offer similar cameras soon. X100s will be another success story for Fujifilm. Heck even the new X20 will be more popular.
This announcement caught my attention. Sure the prints will be priced accordingly . Physical stores have store lease, furniture, retail employees and other overhead that online print outfits don not have. But being able to drive home with large prints within an hour does have its benefit.
Why no votes for the Vtech Toy Story 3 2MP camera? Look at the great images the Strobist captured!
Lets keep it real. No face scratching or kicks to the crotch. Those that own one of the top 3 camera's, congrats. Hey silver medal winner what's with that smirk while on the winners podium?
