Who cares if someone digitall manipulates a photograph? Cameras already cook the raw files and raw converters manipulate the data as well.

Mirrorless Crusader: The "arrival" of the M3? It's not arriving in the U.S. which is supposed to be its biggest market. How could anyone with a single functioning brain cell think that keeping a new product out of the US means a company is taking that product and its technology seriously?

It's truly incredible how DPR is actually paying people tens of thousands of dollars a year to be less knowledgeable than most of its forum posters. And I haven't even gotten to the part about the M3 being a joke of an upgrade, kind of like how the Rebel went almost 6 years since 2009 barely changing anything until just now. Canon just doesn't get it. Period.

It's the biggest market for digital cameras. You're arbitrarily separating mirrorleess into a different category when there is no reason to do so. Does Canon not sell DSLRs in Japan or Europe just because those aren't eh largest markets? Of course not, because DSLRs are how Canon really makes money. Mirrorless is a joke to them that they culd care less about and they know it will never sell in the US because THEY CAN'T COMPETE WITH SONY AND M43 - THEIR MIRROELSS CAMERAS SUCK!

Wow what an amazingly irrelevant camera from the bowels of the Canikon Colossus!

Long Live Mirrorless!

Mirrorless Crusader: This is a pathetic excuse for an award-winning photo project. There is absolutely zero technical skill demonstrated in these photos; anybody who happened to be hanging around some soldiers in Ukraine could have taken these with a consumer DSLR set to auto and the kit zoom lens. The composition is awful, there was no thought at all put into the white balance and colors, no action photos, nothing to demonstrate that a skilled photographer captured these images. I could have done better than this if I had nothing to do all day but fly to Ukraine and snap army pictures.

You're not very good at reading comprehension are you? This is a photography contest, not a risk tolerance or accumulated wealth contest. Any nihilist could win this contest if all it takes are military guys in your photos.

I bet they're so proud of using Sony's three-year-old flip LCD technology.

Mirrorless Crusader: You all must be dirt poor to be unable to appreciate how awesome it would be to cruise around with a badass camera like this. Nobody is suggesting that you use this as your main camera. Rich people don't drive their classic cars or their ferraris to work but they obsess over them just the same, and a camera like this is no different.

That's probably why people who love this camera have money and people who hate it don't.

These photos look like they were taken by a 7-year-old.

#1: Not a wildlife photo and the horizon is tilted - terrible technique. Not to mention the choice for black and white is baseless.
#2: Should be horizontally inverted in post and the photo lacks detail
#3: Not a wildlife photo
#4: Way overprocessed and photoshopped
#5. Terribly framed. A bunch of negative space on the right and the bird chopped off on the left
#6: Not enough detail, poor composition, should be horizontally inverted, and impossible to tell what's going on.
#7: Not a wildlife photo
#8: Not a wildlife photo, that animal is domestic as you'll ever see.

On Ghost Town: Shooting in Kolmanskop article (71 comments in total)

These images are average quality. The composition is good but not great, the saturation levels are appropriate, but the white balance is blatantly and arbitrarily warm in many of the images. The lightingwas very poorly done in some of these images, especially #1 with the foreground being desperately needing flash and in some other images the flash was used inappropriately. Overall I would grade this a C+. I certainly could have done better with thousands of dollars worth of gear and enough money to spend all day taking pictures without having to work for a living.

Nothing special; anybody could have taken those pictures if they were rich and insane enough to spend their time biking to every third world country they can find.

StevenE: What about the scores of incredibly lucky photos captured by accident. They were not knowingly planned.
As a photographer, you will have to keep your mouth shut about everything you do, and say only: I planned this shot and it came out exactly as I had intended.
Say nothing else to anyone, ever.

Wrong, all you have to do is take your own damn pictures.

Actually Carl you get a a big fat demerit for not even reading the article which plainly states that the battery cover is part of the battery.
