On Humans of New York: Behind the scenes with Brandon Stanton news story (64 comments in total)

I like the ideas of having a little snippet of conversation / background about the person, it's a neat project. But honestly I was not blown away by the photos themselves. I couldn't help but compare them to a Flickr stream I recently stumbled across, if you like street portraits check this guy's work out:

(I am not the owner of that stream, nor do I know them)

Puddleglum: I didn't know of this concept of a clear pixel. Could, in principle, a sensor be constructed entirely of these, which would produce only black and white images, but offer outstanding SNR even at high ISOs?

Edit: I just saw that Leica has made a camera with such a sensor. Interesting.

I wasn't joking, I really didn't know that there was such a product as a true B/W digital camera.

Please no more megapixels. Bigger files with no real world value.

On Samsung Galaxy Camera - camera phone or phone camera? news story (290 comments in total)

It's neither a camera phone nor a phone camera, because IT DOESN'T MAKE PHONE CALLS. Talk about snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Forget all the half-baked upload and sharing features. Just make wireless transfer to smartphones easy, and toss in GPS tagging over Bluetooth from a smartphone, and you've got a winner.
