bford: How can people online get access to your full resolution image if you don't post it online? Anyone with an obviously desirable image that posts the full resolution version online is a fool.

I would have to agree. Don't depend on f'ing Flickr to only make the small ones available. Also, funny how 36mp is not enough for some, but 3.5mp seems plenty for others.

ManuelVilardeMacedo: I'm still very skeptical about drones in general, but I have co concede it expands photographic possibilities. What this needs is better image quality, though.

What you and Marty say is correct. Drones are new and interesting to some folks. The word drone conjours up lots of bad feeling in some as well because they are used to smoke people from time to time. One general word that covers a whole category of craft. It seems Drone stories on DP review maybe the new iPhone camera stories we were inundated with previously.

Drone lighting
Drone portraits
Drone contest
Drone fashion
Drone sports
Drone weddings
Drone landscape
Drone whatever

All coming to an article near you.

OBI656: I am asking my self a question, is DPREVIEW really about photography, really ...

Very minimally. Mostly it's about gear or technology used in the making of photos. Witness the ad nauseum discussions of m4/3 vs full frame, equivalence, ultimate sharpness and so on.

RichRMA: Did a liberal ever live who didn't want to ban, regulate, prohibit, control, oversee, observe, meddle with EVERYTHING IN SIGHT?

I don't think so. It's an ideology that some central group of smart thinkers need to decide what we can and cannot do. We're not smart enough on our own.

What better time to learn to get it right in camera and quit creating phart.

TheDevil: Wonder if they will have a setting that will separate photographers from phone-tographers. You hire some dude and he shows up at your wedding armed with an iPhone.

@Yishay, correct that is the target photographer. I'll bet the the photography consumer using this app to find a photographer will use this because it's a richer experience than reading craigslist. Richer meaning more pretty pictures.

In the app world, it's like the 1990's were for the desktop. Wild wild west as far as little players making all sorts of applications. Hoping to make it big or hope somebody big buys their app.

Jogger: The real business case here (i.e. how they make money) is by uploading all of your contacts and tracking your location and other meta data for sale to advertising and firms that reconcile disparate personal information. Have you ever wondered why a simple clock app requires your contact list and calendar information?

No I've never wondered that. When you can't figure out what they are selling. They are selling you. Spot on, Jogger.

Someday we'll wish we all had dumb phones.

A ride in a car is a ride in a car, so let's choose photographers the same way. Another platform to race to the bottom with.

On Leica T (Typ 701) gains updated firmware version 1.1 article (57 comments in total)

Sadly most that have commented probably know more about the TRS-80 than making a good photograph and are apparently jealously vitriolic toward those that may own a T series camera.

For those of you to which this description applies. Seek comfort in your brick of technology and the test charts you shoot and the specs you recite daily, you shall endure.

SKPhoto12: Frankly a little overdone. I much prefer the Russian mum! Power to him if he gets the price, but it is not for me!

Overdone? Compared to the photoshop computer art the Russian "mum" created? Overdone? Really?

Very nice photo

I think if your work is good enough to get license you can do better selling it on your own or seek out a deal with an agency directly. These opt in to the agency pools deals are never as good as if the agency wants your work because it's unique. And by the way, do we really need anymore photoshopped to hell and back landscape stock?

AV Janus: Shameless...
They take 70%... I wonder how many emploies they have and where that would possibly explain this model...
Probably bloated consulting and legal fees...

Have you checked the stock agencies? Unless you are contacted by a big name agency because your work rocks, you aren't going to get better than 30%. It's a pretty standard deal out there. There are a few that might give 40 or 50 percent but what is their gravity in the industry? For example say Bob's Pet Stock offers contributors 80%. Big deal, no one on the planet knows about Bob's Pet Stock.

On Nikon Df real-world samples gallery article (224 comments in total)

Still offering two basic colors of skin-tone, peach or grayish yellow. This is a wonderful camera in may ways. Nikon colors not being one of them. Do they offer one with a b&w sensor?

Not so sure. There was a lot of purple fringing on the tree trunks and branches.
