120 to 35: The photos are conceptual art.

Copyright belongs to the artist. In conceptual art, the artist does not usually create the work himself. He provides the concept, gets his associates to produce the work, and presents the end results as his work. The photographer is the conceptual artist who made the monkey take the pictures with his camera. He therefore owns the copyright.

The essential point is: "In conceptual art, the artist does not usually create the work himself." Apart from works produces by hired assistants, there are works that are created randomly. For example setting up a camera to take pictures which some random changes in temperature or light. Exactly because the monkey cannot claim copyright, it becomes a mere tool in the production of the work by the artist.

It doesn't matter. The release of the pictures by the photographer establishes them as his work.

To DPR: You cannot find anything about the modified camera and photos when you follow the link to the source of the photos, which is a blog covering Fuji cameras.

120 to 35: To DPR: Please include the actual sensor dimensions. 1" or a fraction of an inch is not an actual measurement.

Thanks for the info. It's good to see the actual measurements on page 2. But it would be better if DPR and other sites do away with those fake fraction-of-inch measures and simply report the actual size in mm.

On _DSC6013 photo in 120 to 35's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

NEX-5R autofocus with the 16-50 kit lens is not bad at all.

On A travel-sized large-format 4x5 camera? article (219 comments in total)

A relatively modern Fujifile 6x9 medium format film camera with a 90mm lens costing around $500 is a more practical choice.

120 to 35: The sample photos here and in other reviews are generally not very good and boring. Why not use a selection of photos by DPR membership as posted in forums and galleries. Many excellent photos have been posted to the Sony E-mount forum.

For example DSC00116 is not even focused properly. What is it supposed to show? Samples should be technically good and not boring otherwise very few readers will look at them.

There should be a challenge before the review for DPR membership to submit photos (raw + jpeg) that show the capabilities of the camera and the lenses. At least part of the sample photos should be selected from the challenge.

Retzius: The A7 should get a special achievement just for moving technology forward and creating a product that the big 2 have not been able, or willing, to create yet.

Regardless, when the next iteration of the big 2's consumer body is reviewed, i.e. the D5300, I am sure it will get a gold award.

No bias here... move along

;)

Also removed the excess weight.
