I bet a lot of work (lighting, processing) went into making these shots passable. The same amount of work put into shots taken with a real camera would have resulted in much more appealing images.
really good timing.
Nathaniel George Weir: So heres the mega pixel count for Nikon cameras.clueless picture taker: d3200 24.2 Megapixelsamateur: d5100 16.2 Megapixelssemi-pro: d7000 16.2 Megapixelspro: d300s 12.3 Megapixelspro: d800 36.3 MegapixelsVery pro: D4 16.2 Megapixels
So why would nikon put an obsurdly large megapixels sensor in a $700 camera? Because Nikon know that people who buy these budget consumer cameras, shoot in the green box mode (auto), and are too stupid to understand that having so many megapixels doesn't make you take better pictures. Most people assume that if you have more megapixels, then your camera is better and you are a better photographer. 95% people that are in the market to buy a d3200 won't print photos that are bigger than 8x10. There's a reason that the D4 has 16 Megapixels. Because real pros that take great pictures don't need a camera that has 16 Megapixels. I have printed a 24x36 print from a 12 Megapixel and the print quality is fine. I doubt that people who will take
Now what, exactly, did he say in his harmless post that made you decide it was your prerogative to belittle him? This is just a discussion about camera gear- there's no need to insult anybody.
Ashley Pomeroy: It's a shame they couldn't build the wireless thing into the body. That's the way things are going. I've always maintained that entry-level photographers generally *need* pro-calibre cameras; they need fast, reliable autofocus to capture their kids, they need excellent high-ISO and flash metering for parties, and they need a built-in wireless transmitter to get the photos to Facebook. Until recently the only cameras that could do those things were pro-level, but now things are changing.
Entry-level camera buyers are essentially photojournalists, taking and sharing images of real life - maybe not whilst being shot at, but real life nonetheless. Something that future generations might relate to. Rather than boring seascapes and awful HDR rubbish that will die and be forgotten. The amateurs and the pros are alive; the people in the middle - with their tripods and graduated filters and waffling blog posts about their workflow - they're the dead ones. Dead inside.
I'd rather look at a picture of a seascape than a picture of somebody I've never known and don't care about. To each his or her own.
against it if even to preserve from extinction?
