On Lytro opens an interactive studio in Tokyo article (45 comments in total)

Any news about whether they are planning a Lytro studio in Kampala?

I'm skeptical about high(ish) ISO and shadow details.

Hopefully the next generation will improve these two issues.

For now it's a very competitive product though. Size is good.

Esign: Fake or not, doesn’t matter att all, as long as the picture is fit for use and reinforces the story. If not, don’t use is, even if it's NOT "fake".

Monkeys are a paraphyletic group for reasons with which I won't bore you. In any case, hominoids (chimps, humans, and so on) are not monkeys, but rather apes.

I agree. This is a stylistic exercise and it can't make phone calls. I'll reserve final judgment until I see actual photos from a site etc. but so far, meh...

Straw man argument; a flaw in logic.

You probably know I never said every camera should have a full frame f/1.2 lens and all made of the same quality to the same budget {SIC}.

Since only you have made this statement, there is nothing for me to be wrong about.

All of you sighing: Is it your breeding season?

OP is generally correct, the camera will be limited in specific ways. Whether other cams are also limited is irrelevant, inasmuch as we aren't discussing other cams -- the site is trying to sell THIS one in this instance, so we're discussing THIS one.

For that much money it needs to be much thinner and it needs to make phone calls. Lollipop 5.0 supports raw. Olympus are behind. Fail.

I don't see a problem with your stance against price drops in practical terms because I suspect the seller will simply accept the difference as a donation. Example: If you insist on paying $400 for this when it's priced at $300, pass a $100 bill to the employee at the counter in addition to the $300 for the item and you'd be good to go. No problem.

The real issue I'd like to see discussed is low light performance. I know P&S have come a long way but the last Oly I tied to use in low light was a letdown. Maybe this'll be better.

I'm almost certain of this also. It'd be a different consideration entirely if the price were $100 lower. Plus in all fairness the presence of this product in the market may spur other makers to follow suit, and that'd probably result in further price drops.

I'm always for price drops.

You sound... well, let's call it "challenged." Sorry.

munro harrap: Faking the film of the Moon landings was necessary because in those days there was no way to get a good enough signal back to Earth.

Think how bad mobile coverage is now at times- and it uses satellites in space.

So, according to this idea they went, but the photographs and the filming was done on Earth, so that we would have something good to look at, at the time. It worked, looked really good and everyone was happy.

As a kid I was thrilled, just like in the movies!!

But you cannot be allowed to get away with it in photographs, because evidence depends on facts, not facts modified or fabricated. Press pictures are EVIDENCE, to get which men risk their lives frequently, so he is definitely NOT worth a prize at all.

Given the tech they had at the time they did a great job with the photomontages and videography. The Arizona desert has never looked better.

It's no different to what this guy here has tried to pull off; however he got nailed and he doesn't have NASA money to pull wool over people's eyes. NASA on the other hand apparently have people actually still convinced -- amazing and discouraging but sheeple will believe almost anything.

Like Gertrude said, "The lady doth protest too much, methinks..."

So far all we've got is a non-native English speaker and a bunch of moon landing victims.

Get real.

I'd not go that far. English may not be OP's first language. OP isn't wrong at all about the Western press, either; simply about what constitutes irony.

Let's hope so, because dimwitted liberals certainly have not made life more tolerable for anyone so far.

It is a great photo, I like it too honestly.

It doesn't seem you understand the definition of "irony."

ecube: I wonder how many of those who posted their comment clicked the link to the article by the World Press Photo on the second paragraph of this article. The link is "didn't find the photographer guilty".

This is where we differ.

I don't wonder about that at all.

Fakes are fake.

INBD!

Nobody said anything when the Yanks faked the moon landings.

A true romantic, he will be missed!

His blog was a breath of fresh air and probably among the few meaningful photo blogs around.

The naysayers here are either incapable or unwilling to accept his greatness. In any case, if you didn't enjoy his blog, you are absolutely a terrible photographer, a disgrace to your "art" or "profession" or whatever you call it. Get help.

Happy travels, Churchie!!!

On CP+ 2013: Casio Interview article (44 comments in total)

The cameras are actually quite good. They're quite responsive in my (now dated, admittedly) experience; hopefully the new ones are just as snappy.

The guy in the photo looks a tad constipated though, hope he's alright.
