On Marco Bohr investigates 'hipster photography' news story (105 comments in total)

I see this recent trend of photography nothing more than a byproduct of readily accessible "hipsta" filters on apps like Hipstamatic and Instagram, with photos then shared through social media to allow them to go "viral" and become an internet "meme".

What once was old is new again.

Such is the circle of life.

On Sony Alpha A7 / A7R preview (2381 comments in total)

With Sony's latest FF MILCs, we may be seeing the beginning of the end of DSLRs as products for mass consumption.

Nikon and Canon should take heed.

reginalddwight: A Buyers' Guide but without specific makes and models?

Hmmm.

Got it, Barney.

Let's hope we will get an updated roundup soon. Time is short. The Holidays are just around the corner.

On Nikon D610 preview (634 comments in total)

Shame on Nikon.

I have been shooting with Nikon gear for 10+ years, but I wonder why anyone should continue buying their photo equipment blindly...especially after how poorly they have handled the D600 oil splatter issue.

Nikon can extend an olive branch to D600 customers by allowing a trade-in of affected D600's for a new D610.

Photographers must stand united. Today, we are all D600 owners.

The D610 is what the D600 should have been.

Come on Nikon, man up.

On ZEISS announces 'no compromise' Otus 55mm F1.4 news story (507 comments in total)

No compromise, eh? Maybe just the price, size and weight of the lens.

Seriously, this should belong in any camera bag of those who shoot with the Nikon D800/E.

Ingenious design. A camera that morphs effortlessly into a shoe shine box.

On Olympus PEN E-P5 Review preview (415 comments in total)

I am surmising you received a defective production copy with the built-in image stabilization.

Did you contact Olympus for a replacement test sample?

On Fashion photography with the 41MP Nokia Lumia 1020 news story (123 comments in total)

The model in the first shot must love how the Lumia 1020 has warped her face to look like that of an alien from The X-Files.

Gaylord is just a grumpy, greedy old man.

He was first commissioned by the Federal government to create the sculptures in 1990 for the Korean War Veterans Memorial. Then, he secures copyright protection on the sculptures which he no longer owns and now sit on public property.

Then in 2006 he proceeds to sue both amateur photographer John Alli for photographing The Column which is now owned by the U.S., as well as the U.S. for copyright infringement of a postage stamp of a photograph of "his" sculptures.

For love of money or country?

Gaylord and his attorneys have decided.

On First Impressions Review: Using the Canon PowerShot G16 article (350 comments in total)

The emergence of CSC has made tweener cameras like the Canon G16 and Nikon P7800 increasingly irrelevant.

In reply to:

Beachcomber Joe: This camera is the result of Nikon misunderstanding their market research. Their research question was "What would you like to see us do with the Nikon 1 system cameras.?". Those queried overwhelmingly
responded "Throw them in the ocean."

@Joe, Great one. You deserve the post of the day.

In reply to:

keeponkeepingon: I'v seen at least one review (digital rev?) trashing the ergonomic of the X-M1

issues included how you have to reach over a control wheel to get to the shutter button and a touch thumb dial on the back that was too easy to easy to hit accidently.

Could any users of the X-M1 comment on how good/bad it is to handle?

Thanks!

YouTube camera reviewers are rarely useful.

Many try and fail miserably to entertain...especially that annoying chap from Digital Rev.

Then there's this creepy guy with big hair who sniffs everything he touches.

On Fujifilm X-M1 real-world samples gallery news story (101 comments in total)

Bold colors and good skin tones. I would have preferred to have seen more high ISO shots.

Nonetheless, Fujifilm's X-Trans sensor strikes again in a more "consumer-friendly" body.

Nicely done.

On Sony A3000 preview (678 comments in total)

Yep. Sony just upped the ante on Canon.

A direct competitor to the 100D (SL1) at approximately half the price.

Well played, Sony.

Thank you for expanding the comments section to nearly all of your articles and recently the reviews also.

It is a challenge sometimes to separate the wheat from the chaff, but the occasional insightful comment can be enlightening and satisfying indeed.

Now if would please revive the "dislike" option....

Impressive.

Another scheme to take money away from the egotists and self-indulgent.
