karamathj: "Recent" indeed - let's just wait till the lil pup is released first - how about making it an LX5 comp?
Because it will be too easy.Remember one thing about the guys who open contests here: They own the whole series of The Mentalist, and practice the impersonation in front of a full size mirror twice a day. They manipulate us. They see us like suckers groveling for recognition.Anyways, I just hope my image wins the Lost To history contest.
brucewillis: E' tutto merito della Leica...Veramente belli il taglio e la profondita'.Complimenti!
Let's see:Your name is Stefano, which sounds Italian from a mile away.This Italian guy sends you a word of praise in Italian, in the hopes that you'll be at least nice enough to say grazie!Dah...Homer.
You really set the bar this time:Opening a challenge for pictures taken with a camera that...IS NOT ON THE MARKET YET!!!!!!I wonder if you guys, those who open challenges here, are drinking bottled water from the same company.
Zeeshanb: As long as we the people keep buying the crap these companies are producing these days, they will keep making it!
That's what my grand father said about car air conditioning.
That person ( and I was obliged to take away the word to qualify him on account of the site's rules) who stole your camera also took away, forever, your priceless memories.Thanks for sharing.God bless you and your family, dear bro.
WOO HOO!!Way to go, kiddo!!!
StevenE: why not make the other half as well?
They have it already.Just add $40 to the price.
JEROME NOLAS: Is it bullet proof?
No, but you can always order the gold plated one.
WilliamJ: I'm fed up with pointless gadgets. I mean it ! When I first came on Dpreview, it was really interesting and totally photo oriented. Nowadays, there are very few news and on the two or three new topics a day, about half of it is about gadgets. Yet there are hundreds of that sort of leather or leather-like case; who cares of this one, who cares of others too ?
I'd prefer to read more reviews about flashes, filters, deflectors, printers, tripods, photo-calibrated video screens or really inovative "little" accessories like the ones produced by Blackrapid (cf: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snake_oil ) that makes our shooting reactions faster, safer and easier.
Is it too difficult to be more substantial ?
I couldn't agree more: gadgets, gadgets, gadgets...When is it going to end?By the way, is there a way to engrave my initials?

Is there ANY money here for the winner?Or just a pleasurable, ever lasting, rewarding memory?Air Miles?McDonald Coupons?Otherwise I don't see the reasons for your headaches or the participants wish to be seen.

I bought my LX-5 last year. I was initially going for the Canon S-100 on account of the F2 aperture, but I'm a guy with small brains and big hands, and I need an exterior flash mount for my studio shots. I don't shoot under extreme weather conditions and I don't shoot sports. Most of my work is corporate, baby pictures & model's portfolios. Now, if a guy like Charlie Waite feels at home with the LX-5 (see his youtube videos with LX-5) Imagine....me.I'd like to take a look at the new LX-7.
drezzd: (cont. 3) Using art filter effects does not inherently make a photo uncreative. As I stated in the beginning, I don't have any particular love for Instagram, but I concede I have seen some shots that were made arguably more intriguing as a result of such phototrickery. The idea that photography is an art solely for the learned enthusiast went up in smoke when each frame stopped costing 22 cents. That being said, of course most people who aren't as into photography as people on DPReview would gravitate to special effects that give their photos more pizazz without necessarily needing to know how it's accomplished. And if that can encourage "non-photographers" to take more photos, it can only be a good thing.
Brilliant exposition, bro.I couldn't agree more with you.I wish Instagram were also available as apps to regular p&s cameras as a friendly option to edit our images instead of buying overpriced editing programs that are a fitted for the graphic industry but hard to master for a computer ignorant dinosaurs like yours truly. Ask me how I like my coffee? Black, percolated, strong and sweet. Then again, it doesn't impede me to have a latte, mocha or any other devil made combination, which I find are also creative ways to make a cup of coffee.
Rachotilko: I compared the output from HX20V to the output from its predecessors, HX9V. I saw an increase in the luma noise level, but no increase in definition of the details.
What was exatly the point of raising the pixel density ?
I have a HX9V also. I like it. It gives me great results. I was so happy that I wanted to buy either HX-20V or HX30V. But the user's reports were not uniform in their opinion. I'll keep waiting for the RX100 reports.
JustFred: I am definitely 100% sure that within a few years DSLR's, mirrorless and compact camera's will have become obsolete and the camera market will be dominated by cellphone camera's. There will only be fullframe DSLR type camera's for serious studio and astro photography and some other specialised fields. But photographic stores will disappear as there won't be any demand at all anymore as everything will be cellphone camera orientated. The cellphone camera's will become richer with features and ability as well. That's the way forward. Even professional journalist photographers will do away with their cumbersome dinosaur DSLR's as Ben Lowy's case proves already. More will follow.
WRONG!!We all be born with a zillion mpg microchip already implanted on the brains of the fetus. The 3D images will be projected onto a wall sized screen. The effects applied on the images will be the result of what we ate or smoked or ingested the night before.
I didn't know Ben Lowry's fine piece of life works until I read this article. His images are beautiful and plenty of life. He made us visit the other side of the Afghan people: they are not a bunch of stupid, intolerant integrates. They also treasure values and love life. Seeing this beautiful image reminds me of a beautiful Afghan film: The Kite Runner.http://filmsufi.blogspot.ca/2009/11/kite-runner-marc-forster-2007.htmlThe man on this image is not only flying a kite. He is sending a message of love.Photo journalism is not just about beheaded corpses and scattered human remains images waiting for a prize.
