About me:

My main interest is taking studio portraits in the living room, usually with a set of strobes. Taking portraits has the advantage that at least one person (the model) is interested in the pictures.
I find the relationship between the photographer and the model the most intriguing part of portrait photography. Mastering the technique is important, but even more important is the human relationship you build with your model during the session.
For holiday and social photography I prefer a pocketable P&S.

Jon Stern: I just got home from picking one up at a Best Buy across the other side of the San Francisco bay. That was the only store I could find with one in stock.

I've immediately found a problem with this lens. My wife's taken a fancy to it and has stolen it to put on her T3i!

The review didn't warn me about that!

Oh, the hazards we bravely face! :-)

Excuse me - this building in Copenhagen is know as The Round Tower (Rundetårn), not House. It was built 1637-1642 as an observatory and towered over the ancient city of Copenhagen with its' 34.8 m (114 ft).

On Elliott Erwitt looks for fun in photo sequences news story (34 comments in total)
In reply to:

joe6pack: What I am most interested to know is how he managed to follow the entire family with a broken umbrella all the way home. They are interesting photos but if I am the person being photographed I would tell the photographer to f**k off.

Perhaps that is what makes Elliott Erwitt unique: he does not inspire that kind of behaviour.
-just sayin'-

Helena777: -English is not my mother tongue-

I was very surprised by this news: a unknown French manufacturer far exceeds the Sony EVF... until I read the explanation: the military industry is behind.

Well, seeing that at the moment human beings need weapons to threaten and defend in an infinite loop, I hope that at least the outcome of the EVF is good and soon implement in consumer cameras.

I love the EVF, seem to me a more useful tool than OVF most of the times. But certainly I am not going to insult who likes OVF, sometimes this forums seems a schoolyard.

I, too, quite agree.
I am happy about the OVF of my low budget DSLR (Canon 550D) but if I could have similar quality and flexibility in a smaller package at the same price, I would not mind if it used an EVF.
BTW I think "Kindergarten" would be a more adequate description than "Schoolyard".

I thought it was St. Pancras, but I'm just a silly foreigner.

I understand why this technique is getting popular. This is the way artists have drawn specimens of flora and fauna for centuries, totally isolated from any background. Truly aesthetic and very well done!

In reply to:

rfsIII: Great Britain codified the Imperial measurement system of feet, inches, and pounds in the 1800s and it was in use for several centuries before that. Why this sudden rush to the Continental system?

Wikipedia states about Britain: "A formal policy of metrication started in 1965."
So yes - it's been quite a long rush. Maybe Americans should begin metrication now, to be ready for the 22. century in 89 years ;-)

As applied mathematics, this is awesome. As a practical way of producing digital images, it does not seem marketable yet. Interesting to see how long it will take before we can, and will want to, buy it.
