noflashplease: The digital era didn't kill this studio, which was an artifact from the era of the British Empire. The firm was famous for taking pictures of colonial administrators, British celebrities and Maharajahs. It appears that Bourne & Shepherd lost their main source of business with the end of colonialism and the ensuing decades when India was a closed, socialist economy. The very fact that the Indian government owns the decrepit physical building, and as the landlord allowed it to hall into such a state of disrepair, proves the point.
the word is neglect
skytripper: Although there are undoubtedly some photographers who take pictures with their smarphones, smartphone "photographers" are generally not photographers at all, but merely consumers who take snapshots with their smartphones. Having the ability to hold a camera in your hand and press the shutter does not make one a "photographer" any more than drawing lines on a piece of paper makes one an "artist".
" No qualification makes someone "a photographer" " - yes there is, the qualification is someone who takes photographs.
having the ability to post a comment does not make one a pundit any more than typing a sentence on a computer makes one a linguist.
Peiasdf: LG really screwed up with G5 and the sales number shows it. It is already the ugliest of flagships (especially after the beautiful V10) and the friend modules just make it uglier.
The camera is good, not as good processing as iPhone and Samsung and not as good hardware as HTC. I hope LG put something amazing in the V11
you're executing lg's master plan of profit exceedingly well. by creating an ugly product, people like you will comment about the beautiful V10 and buy that instead.
The Name is Bond: 78 degree field of view? What's that.
I think most of us here understand 35mm equiv better. And we're just fine with ignoring the comment arguments for those with 'equiv' issues.
it's not complicated for spies like mr. bond, but you did ask the question
magneto shot: Add some stars around leica Red logo and tada! it looks like China Flag. Legit
here's someone who's never seen a flag of china
Mister Roboto: What the heck connect? CM1 trumps every phone out there and still iPhone is the best all rounder? You are not turning into a joke site right?
Apple sucks. your move.
Lars - do not play chess with pigeons. they make up their own rules, leave crap everywhere and strut around as if they are winning
nerd2: It's funny so many people are fooled by LG's marketing lies.
-Sensor itself is the same size and MP as note 4 / GS6 (1/2.6" 16MP)-Aperture is hardly any faster with G4(f1.83 vs f1.9, or 0.15 stop difference) -"IPS Quantum" LCD is just IPS LCD with fancy brand name. It is hardly better than other IPS LCDs in terms of color/brightness/contrast and clearly worse than latest AMOLEDs.
Oh and the full manual control support - sounds good on paper, but the sensors lacks aperture control. You can manually control ISO and shutter speed on other android cameras anyway.
"LG's marketing lies."- did LG claim that the G4 sensor isn't the same size and MP as a note 4?- did LG claim that f1.8 is more than 0.15 stop difference than f1.9?- did LG claim that IPS LCDs are better than the latest AMOLEDs?- did LG claim that sensors can have aperture control?
please post what press releases you must have found because they're not written here. or better yet, don't bother, since these falsehoods that you imply were from LG marketing are really from your mind.
Papi61: 2011: you don't need any tablet smaller than 10"!! Smaller Android tablets are crap!!2012: Apple steals the idea and releases the iPad mini. The iSheep love it.2013: 4" is the perfect screen, anything larger is ridiculous!!2014: Apple steals the idea and releases a phablet and a 5" phone. The iSheep love them.2015: You don't need more than 8mp in a phone camera!! Those higher-def Android phones are just ridiculous!! The iPhone is still better than them!!2016: --you know what's going to happen.
See a pattern here?
why start at 2011? why not start when other companies were copying the kodak brownie?
duartix: By now I'm sure that Apple have a patent on copying ideas from other companies and patenting them. :)That's why they can do it but when others try, they get sued. :P
oh you certainly thought you were, when you said "I'm sure that Apple have a patent on copying ideas from other companies and patenting them. That's why they can do it but when others try, they get sued"
Petrogel: Together with the remote control patent, the magnetic solution lens holder patent , the light field -like imaging system patent and who knows what's next patent, i believe Apple "will use this patent to sue anyone who'll design anything else about mobile devices.And maybe one day Apple will patent photography itself
you get your rotten manners from being raised by your mother? and you don't know your geography or you can't spell?
in either case, you wouldn't understand that you made the false assumption that the broken economy is just about greece. apple, like greece, is just one player in a field. thinking that it is the only bad firm (or country) is to ignore the flaws in the larger system (or economy), where it just participates in.
