Why landscape photos? Is this a camera for landscape or for street? And the prize? For landscape an old E-PM1 or E-Pl1 is enough - or better.

JC999: Any opinions on how it compares to Zenfolio?

I like zenfolio more because it is simple and very good for amateurs and professionals. they made good changes in the past and I hope they stay because I like the good possibilities to include my photos from zenfolio in other websites because you can work with watermark in a very intelligent way and the shop is fine too.

What has the decision making process to do with streetphotography? What is a criteria for good streetphotography?

In the book "the colours of streetphotography in the 21th century" you see a line with paparazi streetphotography on the left and fineart streetphotography on the right end of the line. Where is Eric Kim on this line?
And the cameras in this article are only one possibility. Read more than this article if you want to make the right decision.

Google glass is a spy cam like a lot of other cams for sport and adventure. If you use google glass you must accept personal rights - if not you cant get a lot of problems in a lot of countries because it is nearer than streetphotography and it concerns the personal behaviour.

I think a bill will come for public areas and in private areas it will not be allwed.

delastro: The message is that you are a sport photographer if you have a lot of money and buy the latest equipment. This is right but it is only one part in a collection of parallel worlds.

I made sport photography with a canon 100-400 and an EOS 40D and I think you will not see the difference.

If you want to earn money today with sport photography it may be necessary to have the newest bodies and the right exif text in the shots.

If you make sport-stockphotography . I think - it is enough to use a camera like the Pana FZ200 and the worklflow after the shot.

And if you leave the sport field and the show room you need other cameras for landscape, free animals or streetphotography.

And for food photography in a hotel (not in a show room) it is often better to use a small digicam - this is my experience.

Don´t worry, be happy! This is a place for discussion and not for fighting against enemies. We have the freedom to think and to write what we know.

@Joel Pimenta
Naturally is a 1DX with a 400:2.8 better for sport compared with my 100-400 and a D40. Especially in low light. But in daylight and sunlight, like most of the photos in the article, you can make the same photos sharp with my combination. But you can make more with the new combinations. That is right.

@Hugo808
What is "dumb"? did you read the whole comment? If we talk about "arms race" in sport photography then you need always the newest equipment. Do you need the newest equipment for show rooms? Do you need the newest equipment for food photography? For streetphotography? Sorry?! Be friendly - it is better for a good discussion.

Is here more than one discussion thread for this article? If you click on the article then there is another thread for discussion? Is this right or wrong?

sonnytev: the tip on taking pictures on the sly -- this is deceiving and totally dishonest, I would think. Being "in the picture" means, as far as I am concerned, that your subjects accept you as part of the experience. I take pictures with a camera and i let my subjects know it. 95 % of the t ime they do not object. If they do, then don't take the picture. Unless it is a newsworthy image (reportage, an accident, etc) then you don't need permission. But if it is a highly personal interaction (like the lead picture for this article), I think one owes the couple at least the knowledge that they were a part of your experience.

I think you have in the US the right to take photos but not the right to publish the photos, look here: http://lifehacker.com/5912250/know-your-rights-photography-in-public

in germany it is different and simple: you have not the right

On Leaving my DSLR at home: An iPhone experiment post (171 comments in total)

I miss one aspect. If I travel - travigal.de - I need very often the S-Mode, Shutterspeed. For example for quick situations it is very important to freeze one moment. Is there an app for that S-Mode? The normal Iphone-camera hasn´t it.

sagebrushfire: With freedom you just cannot have it all; to have absolute freedom would be a paradox because that would mean you're free to detract or take the freedom of others, who would then no longer have absolute freedom themselves.

So we argue and organize and find a balance that can satisfy the majority while giving the minority certain rights that allow them to coexist peacefully.

If you're in a non-essential public place or at a specifically planned event where photography is permitted, you don't have a reasonable right to privacy. You went out of your way to obtain access to a publicly available area.

Now, if you're walking in a business or residential area where you don't have much choice, perhaps you're traveling to work or school, I have less sympathy for photographers trying to snap your portrait because you have limited control over your ability to maintain privacy. That being said, photos of crowds or where a person is more or less unidentifiable are mostly harmless.

I think for street photography this is necessary if you have no agreement with the people in the box/shots. Vice versa if you shot f.e. for amnesty it could be important to shot faces to show that these people need help. But this is different. In a country with personal rights you have to accept these rights and in a country without human rights it could be possible to use facephotos for a doumentation.

I do not know if the most significant pictures (which?) would not exist if personal rights would be respected but I know that then other photos would have been the most significant pictures.

Yes and today you can normally blur every photo with a digital filter so that nobody can recognize you everything is all right. It is very easy to do it especially with smartphones ...

In reply to:

bunyarra: <sigh> If you want to rant about sly photography go have as pop at the 1000's of security cameras that capture your every move in every city.

Hello, this was my first thought too. But it is different because if the camera is allowed it must be on a private place or used by the police and second the photos will not be published. Publishing the photos would mean the same like photographic street robbery ...

mandm: Cheaper way to get a 1200mm with AF for the few times needed is put the 800mm on a D4 with a 1.4x and you have a 1200mm f8.0 and still have Auto Focus.

Nikon V1 with 70-300, 300 x 2,7 = 810
