qwertyasdf: LOCA very apparent in F1.4_12IMG_6056
I miss the days when I just started photography, I didn't care about sharpness, don't know what's vignette, CA, let alone LOCA!
Now it's the first thing I see!

That's because they're living la vida LOCA...

Fri13: If you want great control for depth of field, high resolution (you are working with prints over 100x60cm), then you do not want to waste money to any full frame cameras but get this giant. You don't lose in size or weight but you gain more than any DSLR can offer.

If you don't want to this, then m4/3 is best format to use. If you company m4/3 camera with this, you have best setup.

Bozilla, you have no idea of what you're talking about.

In reply to:

snegron2: Ironic how this digital icon image was created with analog film.

That's because medium format transparencies are better than digital and second only to large format film. Yes, all you children of the digital revolution: it was possible to achieve superlative image quality before they turned everything into bytes and pixels. Believe it or not.

Lenscraft: Every time I read comments on DPReview, I'm struck by how negative and angry that they seem. This doesn't only apply to the Canon vs. Nikon vs. Sony etc comments. As a response to this rather lovely scenic, I'm reading things like this:

"Always seemed blurry to me"

"Horrible image. To avoid as background at all costs."

"Proof, if it were needed, that even a good photographer can produce an utterly uninspiring image that looks fake."

Why are folks so negative? It's a pretty picture. Not my personal style, but that doesn't mean that I tear it down. Remember, there is a human being, a photographer like you, behind that image.

"A photographer like you"? They wish!
Don't even get me started imagining what these guys would propose to Microsoft...

In reply to:

fuego6: With the new cameras... this is becoming increasingly easy to accomplish.. instant focus and auto-rifle like capture. Just slam the shutter, take 40 photos and cull and enjoy after the fact. Same for milk drops now... no need to expensive equipment and triggered shutter releases... just jam the shutter button and review the results. Love technology!

Harold Edgerton made pictures like this long before the word "digital" was even invented. Your point about new cameras is...?

Not just living dangerously, but living on the razor's edge. (Or should it be the sandpaper's edge?)
