On WaterWeight rethinks the sandbag approach to stability article (77 comments in total)
In reply to:

dark goob: LOL I've been duct taping and bungeeing water bottles to my stuff for years. Then I switched to beer, and my reward for finishing the shoot is to drink said beer and xfer the weight to my belly.

Downside of such solution is that your ballast may change/shift during the shoot. Poor balance hazard! ;)

50$ joke
and the funniest thing is that there will be "pros" who will actually buy this solution of a non existing problem. Yeah - take a 3-pack.
C'mon as many stated below - there is a camera bag serving the same purpose, and you don't need to carry additional weight.

Metal zippers on a photo bag? Great idea if you like your gear being scratched.

I used to be a big fan of Lensbaby. But now it seems they got focused on overpriced hipster lomo style junk.
This lens does not offer anything that e.g. Samyang couldn't do.
Calling internal reflections or limited sensor coverage an artistic or special effect is in my opinion, a misunderstanding. Every photo can be deteriorated in post processing to achieve such effects. However none taken with this lens could be improved to match the quality (resolution, contrast, etc) and application range of even cheaper, but better made counterparts.

So the hassel-sony atrocity is still alive?
Why so cheap?

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 rumored to be out of production article (211 comments in total)
In reply to:

munro harrap: Girl, it was an abomination that micro 4/3rds was ever legalized,as on a square millimetre basis it boasts the noisiest, least efficient and most expensive of all sensor-based systems.

Has anybody exactly worked out how much an OMD type camera would cost were its sensor size increased and the price of lenses increased by the ratio of the sensors size compared to full-frame 36x24mm digital format?

Built by fascists for dummies, or what?

Yeah, now use the same "logic" on iphone. You've really made my day...

panpen: Boy, it was about time to stop this abomination. Other than the IS, the camera was subpar. One needed child fingers to find the buttons on that thing. As for Olympus colors, that was always one reason for people to laugh. Well, people know a thing or two about photography. Over saturated colors doesn't mean great colors.

I'm sure Olympus cheerleaders will be flamed, but this is the truth. People with skills and a bunch of Leica lenses always use either a Leica camera or Sony A7. Let's face it, M5 was for amateurs.

This was a great camera for people that found the limits of their cell phones.

@panpen
assuming you're serious, please google "raw format" or "raw photo" and your saturation problems may soon be gone.
And yes, obviously everything other than FF is lame and for amateurs.

TyphoonTW: "4 sample images from 4 random cameras...let's see if I can guess which one is the Leica X ! Ok the first one is clearly from a smartphone....second one looks good....third one looks good....fourth one is good too....let's check some details, like the eyes from the asian girl....well the smartphone pic looks soft, the other 3 are pretty sharp....but I'll give it to number 2! Yes, the second one is surely the Leic....what, so it was the first one?".
Oh well, it must have a lot of character.

Yeah... I've had cheaper ones, more expensive ones...but never decided to go for something that poor in IQ/$ aspects.
Well...at least it's more hipsterish then anything I ever had or will ever own.
