On Can Photojournalism Survive in the Instagram Era? article (101 comments in total)

As a photojournalist I feel Rush Limbaugh said it best regarding Newspapers:
Para phrase " They are going out of business due to bad business decisions, not incoming technology ".

Didn't one of the wealthiest businessman on the planet recently buy a string of 'Local' Newspapers?.

Remember this: Anyone attending a New York Philharmonic performance can know when a musical 'error' takes place, even though the listener may have no knowledge of 'Music'.

It is the same with Photojournalism. People know a good image when they see it. Whether captured by a 'Pro" or a 'Consumer'.

I produce on a continuous basis images that are 'good'.

The editors can not drum up enough 'Good' 'Consumer' pics to fill the paper on a continuous basis. There are only so many newsworthy moments and not every "Consumer' photographer knows how to capture the moment.

It takes 'Good' pictures to get the readers to buy the paper on a regular basis.

One reason why they do is my newspaper publishes my pictures.

When is this site going to get back to real photography?

An 'Accomplished Mobile Photographer"?

He must be the world's first.

On DPReview launches GearShop article (327 comments in total)

Not to include the Samsung NX line, especially with their 13 lenses and DXO marks is outrageous.

At least include one to thank them for making the mirrorless market place competitive (unlike Sony).

In reply to:

Mikhail Tal: Is there any difference between buying from GearShop and buying from Amazon, other than the temporary free accessory deal?

Yours was the first question to enter my mind.

Edit: new reply is a good answer.

On Best DSLRs and ILCs for less than $1000 article (276 comments in total)
In reply to:

Nikonworks: Most retailers hold a straight forward 'Inventory Sale', of which this article clearly seems to be, except the straight forward part.

DPReview please take notice:
When I was a kid 'slot cars' were the newest and 'biggest' thing.
Stores opened up just with slot car race tracks. It was fantastic but very short lived because the market place became overloaded with slot cars and accessories to the point the kids could not keep up with the market.
The whole market folded like a deck of cards.

Of late, you, the editors are doing the same thing here at DPReview.
You have too many Final Reviews to post before listing 'Old cameras under $1000'. You are reaching in all directions, phones, tech, cameras, etc.
You are making this site unwieldly and soon ambiguous.

You better get together and focus on your mission.

At the same time you can discuss formally thanking me for my 'Real World Samples' suggestion.

I suggest you re-read my comment.

Here is the important part:

And your reply is for me to get off my high horse.

those posting comments and you are rather rude.

This article is in error.

The front page of the Sun-Times was all red with large print and a small sized photo of the image pictured at above left.

It is not just the photo quality that matters but the ability to place it on a page effectively as well.

Second in line for quick batch processing is PerfectlyClear.

On Accessory Review: GigaPan Epic Pro article (13 comments in total)

In today's world I feel this is a bit of overkill.

I shoot panos with my tripod (mono-pod, even hand held at times),
and the great, free stitiching program Microsft Ice.

Many of my panos include people which ICE nicely compensates for thier movement, leaving very few clone touch-ups required.

This way I can shoot fast and can change vantage points on the spur of the moment.

Of course there is a place for a head such as this GigPan, but not in my bag.

I really enjoy seeing the phrase 'Real World Samples' here at DPReview,
thanks to my previous critical comment and suggestion on another article.

I still have not recieved any acknowledgement nor 'Thank You'.

Incomprehensible!

Maybe it is just me.

Apple was and is always over priced.

Android works for me at a much better price.

I don't think so. It is too plastic looking.
