cpkuntz: Disaster snuff porn is the best of 2013? I understand the journalistic value of such images, but not really the artistic value. To me, this is the most beautiful image captured by humanity in 2013:

The Saturn image is amazing indeed! But what i don't understand, if earth looks that big and clear from saturn, why does Saturn (a much bigger planet) look so minuscule from earth?
Maybe the photo isn't taken with a wide angle as stated but zoomed in a lot, this could explain things...

sebastian huvenaars: Imagine this scenario in 1983.
Photographer has a dark room at his house but needs to pay every month to get access to it.
Sound too unrealistic to be true, but here we are in 2013...
I thought you're still able to store them on your local drive. Not that this is of any use when the program to edit them with is locked up cause of not paying your monthly fee...
Imagine this scenario in 1983.
Ah look, discounts. Not so clouded the future is, trying to drag us into the dark side...
(i do realize i sound like a complete nerd now lol)
mike kobal: so many comments on who this camera is for and who it's not forI think it is for the few "left overs" who actually take pictures with their camera!Can't wait to get my hands on this one
Could it be the way this camera is positioned in the market, as a "photographers camera", when the most important spec seem to be cosmetics...
I believe this is where the shoe pinches.
sebastian huvenaars: This retro crap is hijacking the advance in contemporary design, looking forward to the day people are done with this nostalgia phase...
Imagine this thing 5 years from now, buyers are left with an old older-looking camera.
The Nikon FM is obsolete too right now, but people like it for the way it marks a period in camera history cause if its (for that time) contemporary design.
There's a good chance that in 25 years, people recall for example Canon 300D, Sony Nex, Nikon D700 and (forgive me) iPhone as they're clear representatives of what camera's are in their days.
This Nikon Fd is pastiche, it'll age quick and badly.
Saying it doesn't matter is somewhat true. True and saddening... I rather own something that makes sense for its time.

The kettle of retro-sauce strikes again...
A contemporary FM would be quite nice, this looks more like a pastiche D610.
adobe creative fog
Liking the design. Sharp, functional, efficient.
It ain't ugly enough thus fake ;)
Looks so alien! Very pretty :)
Trying to think of secure objects, a "cloud" wouldn't exactly pop to mind :)
ecm: The real story is how few of us actually care WHAT happens to Adobe any more.....
Well, i kinda care. I very much like using Adobe's software, seeing them destroying their self like they do is a sad thing.
Does this mean i feel sympathy for Adobe? Not a bit, greedy fckrs haha :P
I'll bet this is so much fun to use :)
ljmac: IMHO, the amount of post processing on so many photos these days means they *are* more like paintings than photos. The only image I would consider to be a true photo here is the house one, and possibly the first one (if so this *is* a remarkable illusion). We need a new term for these sorts of images - they may be based on photos, but have been taken far from them.
photings and painto's :)
Halogram One: The naming sucks...
Olympus Omdemi, easy.
9,99 isn't very much, but forever is very forever...
Still love that R1, even after replacing it with a fancy dslr :)
