jcmarfilph: none of the above.. Those silly ideas of attaching lens to a mediocre camera phone with sensor smaller than a pinhead are worthless.
Also, attaching a lens bigger than a phone itself defeats the purpose of mobility.
I'd rather see more travelzoom or bridge cam with WIFI or 4G capabilities than make my self look like a dork with a slippery brick in one hand and another hand holding the lens.
It's not often that I agree totally with an opinion on these comments.But I do now. All of this (except for a real camera but with connectivity) looks just silly.And there is no way that it will yield GOOD results."Interesting" (as in "weird"): yes maybe. But GOOD, no.
Next up: buy a Leica, get a Rolls-Royce bundled for free!
and the point is?
I like his photography.Good, simple concepts and well executed.No overdone PP but just enough.

Now THAT is FAR more interesting!!
That video was interesting.The app is more of the same.(But I must admit that Koloid is corny fun.)
photo sharing (and commenting) made easier is a great thing if it works well
That first is mildly interesting, but the animation is necessary to make the image interesting...That second just makes me dizzy. Help, I want to get off this ride!!
jm67: From the viewpoint of a wedding photographer...Yes I know it doesn't quite fit all five but #s two and four do so frequently.
'It will mean great exposure for you.'--No, it won't. I'm on the wrong side of the camera to be exposed. 'If you don't want to do it for free, I know other photographers who will.'--Then why are you asking me?'We could just find a stock photo if you're not interested.'--I can recommend a few companies if you'd like to save time.'My cousin has a DSLR and I think I can get him to do it if you don't want to.(My personal favourite, the cousin, aunt, uncle and I get this alot),--You'll cry when you see the results so I recommend hydrating first.'If all goes well, it could lead to paid opportunities with our company.'--I love betting on "maybes" and "ifs". Sign me up. I mean, pass.
For a wedding photographer, the last one would me:"I'm sure to divorce at some point and then maybe I'll pay you to shoot my next wedding."
Ventil: My favorite, although not a quote asking images for free:
"Wow, great cameras, sure they have to take good pictures!"-- "Yes, of course, we've taught them everything we know..."
People seldom talk to a painter like this:"Wow, great brushes - they must make splendid paintings"Roel
SemperAugustus: The new loaded word is "donation"... amounts to the same with the same arguments:- Good exposure, good marketing- Networking, etc.My answer is "not interested", if you donate or work for free you are marketing yourself as cheap/no cost resource. Your work will be appreciated as such.
I do not agree, at least not totally.See my later reply to the article itself.I don't think using those conditions "cheapens" my work.And I can tell it is highly appreciated.
I do the occasional pro bono job, but under my conditions:* only for good causes that I support and know don't have the budget* editorial and creative control* no fees, but expenses reimbursed* copyright remains with me: only a licence for a well specified use that is exclusively for the good cause (all commercial use excluded)* guaranteed exposure (no images for internal use : they must be used for specified publicly distributed ends (book, brochure, exhibition, ...)
Approached like that, pro bono work can open doors and be a win-win.
RoelHendrickx: Corny but fun...
I did give it a try.Quick pic of my daughter here:http://roelh.zenfolio.com/p402011222/h69147d19#h69147d19Using this thing has a kind of "craft" feeling to it (which is a strange thing to say with anything digital, I guess), and it is also a bit random (like Hipstamatic) but in a fun way.I'll leave it on the Phone for a while I think...
Corny but fun...
So much for Josh Orter's 15 minutes of fame.
One of the most interesting articles so far on DPR.This is really value beyond this-or-that camera (or Phone) is so-and-so.
CollBaxter: Given the choice between a gold plated toilet and a gold IPhone I would probably take the toilet.
I adds new meaning to the word bling.
Collin,Trust me : gold plated toilets are very cold to sit on.;-)Roel
SRT3lkt: I've been thinking those were CG.
Well, they are post-processed to a very large extent, and there is a finet line between that and full CG
