I would have loved to upgrade my 60D to the 70D, in order to gain more resolution and maybe a camera that has a better shutter-noise (one that does sound like a shutter, not like a lashed wiggly sole). But after your review (preview) I am really not convinced of the image quality offered.

Why should still photographers be penalized by new technology? A new camera should take better pictures. Stills. They should make specific models for video. All manufacturers are just trying to make more money by targeting average users. Just admit it. Semi-pros and pros are being left behind. Most people do not even know what DOF is and cannot even use manual focus...

On 500px redesigns online photo portfolios post (42 comments in total)
In reply to:

ngollan: I'm pretty much returning to Flickr after having used 500px for a short time. 500px appears to be a rather gimmicky site without a real "killer feature" or a pleasant userbase. Most comments I got were essentially cries for attention ("I'm so lonely and I want more people to click my images, I upvoted your so please upvote mine!"), the fixed resolution is very limited by today's standards, metadata is frequently parsed wrong…

Maybe I'm getting too old to see the appeal of those pseudo-social sites, but all in all I'm not really a fan of the experience there.

on Flickr you have all sort of profiles. Many are *very* good photographers. 500px.............. helloooo......anybody there?????

Oh, BTW: why aren't the pages advancing by themselves like they used to do in the past?

Pity.

On My best picture ever ! challenge (9 comments in total)

I am voting right now... at some point I had to go back to the challenge main page to check if I had not misread the title of the challenge itself. Maybe it said your WORST shot ever....
90% of the entries I have come across are hideous.
No wonder I had stopped submitting to challenges.
What I have heard in the photography business is correct: the more people use the medium, the lower the quality of the pictures.
Mine included, of course.

On Street Photographers test freedom to shoot in London article (184 comments in total)

I am so glad someone took the matter to the public! I have been gently invited not to take pics. I was shooting at the Angel metal statue in Angel, London, two months ago. I did not want to argue, so I left (the scene wasn't very good anyhow). But I did feel very upset. I thought London and the UK are becoming CRAZY.
