Why is the lettering on the helicopter mirrored?
"the highest European mountain"That would be the Mont Blanc or the Elbrus, depending on the border definition of Europe. The Zugspitze isn't even close with more than 500 summits over 3000m in the Alps.
It says in the article:
"The dial above that is used for aperture or manual focus, depending on what you're doing. Above that is the aperture dial, which goes to F16, instead of F8 on the LX7."
I'm guessing it's meant to say the first dial is for "zoom or manual focus", or why should it be aperture when there already is a dedicated aperture dial? Zooming with the Lever on top would actually let me hesitate buying this camera.
Peiasdf: So how much is 100 kgf consider it is not a SI unit. 100G?
1 kgf = 1kg * 1g = 9.81 N. So crushproof to 100kgf means you can put a 100kg weight on it without crushing it (static load). I assume they used that unit because it's more intuitive than 981 N, even though it's non-standard.
How strict is the "no snow and ice" rule? Does this mean no winter pics? Are snow capped mountains or small fields of snow in the summer OK?
Buzz Lightyear: While I would not argue with the suggestion that there are a few entries clearly not following the rules, it seems to me a rather punitive, arbitrary and exclusionary definition would exclude a silhouetted landscape because somebody claimed it was "misunderstanding the point of the challenge", IMO.
I think a silhouette misunderstand the point of the challenge because it is a "picture without green of a landscape" not a "picture of a landscape without green".The voters seem to agree with me, I think.
jetals: I suggest that less than HALF of the entries fit the criterea in the rules :(Lext123, you might have some work to do, unfortunately.
I agree, all pictures are without green, but many are not of landscapes without green. The silhouetted landscapes and seascapes are beautiful and well shot but misunderstood the point of the challenge IMO. It's not so unusual that pictures of the ocean are without green, is it?
