I don't see how regulations issued today, can prohibit a certain custom or use that predeces it, unless those regulations are just a repetition of general law.But in that case, Instagram should not include it now to try and crack down on use they seem to have tolerated and encouraged before.Adding it to corporate regulations seems to be a message that "there is no more Mr. Nice Guy" (from now on), which is kind of an admission, that previously much more was tolerated.
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
