Leo "Zoom": If they seek for truth - then it is impossible. Even straight from the camera picture can lie - it can be staged, can be framed to hide unwanted things, etc. IMO contests should seek evaluate the photos, not the event behind them. That's why manipulation shouldn't be disqualified.

Many photos are 'staged' like the photo above with the red background. Would the man be normally standing there staring at the camera? But what if the photo of the man was taken elsewhere and superimposed on the photo of the background? These are two different issues.

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (2356 comments in total)

Canon should take a look back at the 35 year old F1n and design a system camera with an interchangeable sensor + processing unit. One unit for 4K video, another for hi-res landscape and so on.

On Leica M9 users report sensor corrosion issue article (379 comments in total)

I have seen the pattern in the left photo on the plastic "glass" of unused slide frames that were stored in unsealed boxes. This is possibly caused by fungus. Any camera should be stored in a dry environment to avoid this.

ZoranHR: Big attention this camera gets. I would like Sony system continue to improve,there is a space. So far I m not interested.
Battery life is poor. Also I would like to have an oportunity and see how it feels in hand with some proper glass. I m afraid FF lenses are heavy and whole package is akward to hold. But that I would have to see.

A 1970's fully mechanical SLR film camera is just the tool for places with lots of sand and wind, etc. Anything with sensors and electronics is likely to break in those conditions.

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.
