historianx: wwhat no Yabokkie trashing this as well? Did the rising sun finally set?
if you crop it, he will come
Ron A 19: I guess 3D video wasn't that popular...
nor were 3D photos.
sooner than 2 years after the GH3 was introduced.
agentul: "Shots I find offensive might be removed.Make sure the entries look good and tasteful (at least you must find your own shot tasteful)."
i don't think taking pictures of a woman (no other type of "human adult" can give birth to a child) while giving birth is sensible or tasteful, other than documenting the process for scientific or educational purposes. even it's set in a nice sunrise or sunset atmosphere. even if it's a silhouette type shot. what's next, "your best chest surgery" challenge? "selfies while treating gunshot wounds"?
"a human adult(s) as the main subject giving birth to a child"
the wording implies "in the process of giving birth" not "having just given birth". notice how you have used the verb "to give".
regarding my disqualified entry, i would like to clarify:
it is in fact a seedless sunflower, used for decorative purposes. i bought them myself a few years ago as a bouquet. they are hard to find.
the challenge rules did not specify whether the sunflower had to be fertile or not. i can provide a few more photos that show the leaves and the stem, which are identical to those of fertile sunflowers.
edit: here is a link to a Romanian company selling the decorative sun flowers. http://agrosemimpex.ro/produse/search/category/88/page/2
also, another Romanian company: http://www.seminte.de/Seminte-de-flori/Floarea-soarelui/Floarea-soarelui-umpluta-oxid.html
"Shots I find offensive might be removed.Make sure the entries look good and tasteful (at least you must find your own shot tasteful)."
i was expecting that the "your partner's valentine's day" and "inside of a space ship" challenges to have very few entries (i wouldn't put photos of my wife here for all to judge, and not many people have access inside spaceships, much less be allowed to take pictures and make them public). however, i am surprised that we only have 4 days to go on this challenge and only 3 pictures. i was expecting a flood of Lipscani-themed images, which is why i entered my Poli picture. Bucharest is not the most beautiful city in the world, but it does have a lot of nice areas.
i must say, i'm a bit disappointed.
Francis Carver: So many insightful comments.... so few people who could ever actually AFFORD TO BUY something like this, huh? (Myself included.)
this is the kind of camera that you buy using company money (could be your own company).
JDThomas: Why do people get so bent out of shape when a camera is offered in colors?
because they're still sour after the introduction of color film, and color cameras bring back the PTSD.
rwbaron: I wonder who makes the sensor for them?
a chinese and a russian in a trailor park in Oregon.
Frank_BR: Ove Bengtson, Hasselblad Product Manager said: "… This CMOS sensor model represents a major leap forward in camera development and breaks new grounds for medium format photographers…"
It sounds almost ridiculous when someone says in 2014 that CMOS sensor is a "major leap forward in camera development". In 2000 the Canon D30 already had a CMOS sensor! That is, the sensor technology of medium format is lagged 14 years compared to other formats. The technology in the MF field develops so slowly that in 2028 Hasselblad (if it survives until then) will be bragging that its MF cameras can shoot 1080i video…
... at 30 fps. thanks to the new advancements in digital technology!
tabloid: How many MP will it have ?
Artistico: Whatever the case may be, at least it puts the Panasonic GH3 to shame...
but not the GH4, right?
this will be good for walking around and street photography. finally, some real competition for m4/3.
the most expensive bicycle in the world, and it doesn't even come with wheels. i'm disappointed.
D1N0: I think Sony is better at Pushing the envelope
sony plays curling with their envelopes. every time one hits a good place, another one displaces it.
Maethros: Lesson learned? File class action lawsuits sooner in order to get Nikon to listen to us.
they should include the necessary papers in the box, along with the warranty and the manual. it will save people some time. you register your camera, join the pending class action suit, then off you go to take nice photos.
raztec: It's about time Nikon! But you get an "F" in customer service.
they used that F and made the DF! turned that frown upside down!
blame the users. they have no idea how to properly handle our... oh, wait, this might actually be our fault. still, how bad can it be, let's wait quietly, maybe... no, everyone's laughing at us, we should probably do something.
arrr: Who asked for a D4s? *** Nikon where the heck is the D400?!
@Michel Flook at what happened to the D90. from what i understand, the D7000 was not a real successor. Nikon seems to be in the middle of a transition in its product lines.
