jorepuusa: It breaks my heart to see how awkward way these photogs hold their cameras.
There are certain standards, look how the pros touch and hold their gear.
A carpenter does not hit the nail with the wooden handle of his hammer.

And anyone like you claiming that this or that is utter nonsense,
------------
Really?
Utter sense to hold the cam so that its is about to fall any minute?
I have fyi been shooting for IOPP in Los Angeles Olympics.
Try to keep a cam that way 30 minutes during 10 000m run for instance and keep the other eye closed, hah..... The problem here is that I said "I know" and that is the worst mistake in dprw. Nobody must not know anything, not even the most seasoned pros like me.
In this thread there is one more text, the writer says the same as me. But he is racially the same as You and I´m some second hand as......le from Finland. As I was told here some years ago :-)
Ok... keep your ideas but next time during soccer game take a look how real pros hold their gear in vertical shot. It´s always right hand above the cam. That is btw a standard. ;-) Utterly nonsense......go ask a pro.

Hate from amateurs as usual. Try holding the camera wrong way for years and then come back to tell about headaches etc bad back.
When taking pictures both eyes should be open. Only way to see those things worth seeing around.
But here we see the society at itÅ› worst. When someone thinks different, he is mocked trying to make him silent.
As I said, take a look at how the pros hold cams. Almost everybody does it the same way, That may be called a standard, will I be shot now as You do in US when someone does not lick ass.

Hard to believe those hatefull comments against analog method.
-
If analog is horrified? how come The Andalusian dog by Dali or Charlie Chaplin movies etc. are so important movies in the world. The technical quality in those masterpieces is not like digital nowadays .... but visual quality is not the same thing as technical quality.

Photographers are divided. Some take pictures and some have cameras as a hobby.

In reply to:

Fri13: Nikon really has dropped the ball. The have given strong signals about their incapability use latest technology to improve their users capabilities get the shot.

1) The EVF lag they mention is in good EVF negligent to even best reaction times. The only real "limitation" is the missing live view but with 10-15fps you don't really need one unless subject is moving from frame side to side like in mogul skiing, but then you can always use tracking and problem is solved totally. The OVF is huge limitation in low lit scenery or bright lit scenery and EVF wins, until you hit to -20C and EVF slows down!

2) The incapability call digital stabilization as is, instead they fool their customers to think that "electronic stabilization" is somewhat lossless. OIS and IBIS are electronical stabilization, but not digital ones.

3) D5 and D500 are not going to be updated for years, strong signal that mirrorless variant isn't coming. That means Nikon users need to wait 3-5 years to get better changes.

And it is so called "Tunnel Vision". You don't see anything outside of your objective field of view.

Not true. Pros shoot both eyes open and right eye framing. No tunnel. About 140 degrees.

I`m a pro, shot gigs for AP, UPI, BlackStar. IOPP in Moscow, Sarajevo, LA. Used Nikons in wars+crisis. Niks are more durable than amateur cams. There are many reasons not to use EVF , most important, that it breaks far more easily than OVF. Pros use cams that can take it, rain, drop.
Ergonomics and durability come first. For an amateur that is hard to see. Only pics really mean. Pics are only as good as is the photog.
Shot LA Oly 100 meters and C.Lewis. Was IOPP which means, were shooting inner field. Cams focused manually.
I shot with 400mm MF concentrating on Lewis with F2. There were 6 frames, all in focus cause they had to be. Lewis looked as he should with feet position and all. What did I gain with a cam with EVF..? Concerning the visual quality of the pix????
Nikon never broke down..Not in Afganistan, not in Sudan, not in Bosnia, not in Iraq. Noise or shape of buttons mean nada. Just my humble opinion as an old man.
Canons did well, but not in freeze, hot and humid.

Richard Franiec: Can anyone tell me why the Leica pictures showcased in the gallery are more special than what can be done with other manufacturers cameras/lenses?

I wrote that these pictures are real...good if You wish. I did not notice they were taken with a Leica. Who cares. These pictures touched something inside me and the camera make means then nothing. Mostly pictures today are plagiates with no soul. These had some. Camera...really who cares..

A long time has gone but now at last there are some real pictures in the gallery. I like the absurd. Usually the gallery images are useless cause everything looks the same in these resolutions. I´m a pro for 40 years and I still like pictures, not cameras. The rest of the world seems to like these "plastic hairdryers" called cameras. Human mind and imagination mean something, cameras just do not, they are just dull boxes. But then, most hobbyist are for cameras not for pictures. Everybody should read more books...then take pictures.

I wrote earlier in this thread that this work has been seen already and I was disappointed that DPREVIEW published it. And what answers did I get here and in my private mail. Hate, HATE and HATE.
I´ve been thinking why photography has so mauch hate in it when someone writes against common and fixed idea. There are very little conversations.
That has to be cause most of people in the industry nowadays have no education of photography and because most amateurs are camera addicts and know very little about photography. Word ART is used but very seldom it goes with the pictures under discussion. ART is something newly born and fresh. Not these bad instagram copies everywhere. Photography as profession and hobby is dying...because of us. I´m a pro photojournalist and I did loose my job cause amateurs hand their pictures for free. Same goes with many my pro friends all over the world. Dpreview should not encourage amateurs by showing copied crap. Moral pls come back from where You went.

As You may look, his "work" are just bad copies of someone elses work and what I wrote was totally right.

Dear Der Steppenwolf.
I use my own name to write about things. You do not. I´m not a coward.
These pictures started to emerge right after Photoshop came out. This is called kitch. But photography. No. Look back to 1995-2000 amateur material and You see this kind of material everywhere. Everybody can and must do this kind of hmmm "art" if they please, but this site is supposed to be about photography.
Anger is another thing..Why are You calling ME a joke when I write about someone´s pictures? And still another thing. An editor may write a critics about grand piano concert in a newspaper, but nobody expects the editor to know how to play!
Perhaps we who shoot pictures are a bit more stupid than those who are really into ART. These collages are not art ... just PS studies. When PS was Young we saw these in tens of thousands everywhere.

Well...maybe there were a couple of amateur photographers who willingly delivered free pictures for media. That way the photojournalism has died everywhere, thank´s to amateurs or amatures as people from US write it.

Only double full moon, Saturn, some ISIS troops with black flags and an elephant standing on his nose are missing. Viva Photoshop.

Yup, that's the DPR audience alright!

That`s what photography is today. These people do not make pictures they test their cameras. You hit the nail here.

I do understand Adobe. In Russia almost all Photoshops are copies and the same goes with almost all countries I´v visited. Who was able - he did steal Photoshop.
That is not right and the same goes with pictures. As a pro I see all my pictures stolen when in upload something to web. Morals are long gone.

In reply to:

jorepuusa: Wonderful pictures of war planes, but where are the pictures of US military planes bombing children and other civilians to pieces? Cannot see any. Romanticizeing killing machines feels absurd.

Christom...still asking. Why You are so afraid that You cannot use Your own name here? In can, jore puusa is my name- It is easy --behind a nickname-- to write that patriotic crap that Your singleminded rightist school system has put in You. I just wonder why america calls itself a democracy. If one does not have money, he cannot be elected anywhere. Is that what You are defending?
This started from pictures of killing machines. So You like killing people in other countries. And, Taleban is fighting for their country USA is invading, so would You- if Taleban attacket USA.
I say nothing about if they are right or wrong, but they are nationalists as You. You do not get the bigger picture at all. Just let the other nations do what they do and keep out of killing civilians all around. That is why all hate You and that is where terrorism starts. If someone innocent loses his child ( collateral or not) he`ll hate You for ever. USA is the reason for terrorism.

Christom, You speak about freedom but You are not free enough to use Your own name here. That is coward action.
There are no americans, You are all europeans who left to America because of religious reasons.
Taliban is fighting for their country which USA is invading... The way USA equipped Taliban is doing it is another matter and another matter is their dark interpretation of Islam. But still they are people who love their country which has been taken by US terrorist.
This poor christon asks me to think what indians did to settlers. The indians were trying to fight against those who tried to steal their country. Indians were native americans and loved their country which was stolen by whites who drove indians to reservates to die off tuberculosis and booze.
The school system in USA teaches history etc like communists did in SOviet Union. Onesided and false. So sad that he and other americans believe that we love them because of Disneyland, bad movies and soap and handguns.

Don´t know who You answer to "Howaboutraw".
USA sent military equipment to Soviet Union via Murmansk from 1942.
US made AiraCobra fighters killed thousands of Finnish soldiers in hands of Soviet pilots. Hypocritical is the US way and we small countries pay the bill.
This all started when I saw the ultranationalist US flag showing in cockpit ...machines that kill are not made for fun and the weakest are those who suffer the most..been a war photographer ( in Afganistan too) I know what I´m writing about.
