On Dronestagram contest winners announced article (119 comments in total)
In reply to:

69chevy: "The winning photo just makes it very clear why banning drones from national parks is a very good idea."

Calm down Chicken Little...

The only thing clear is that someone took a picture of a bird.

Calm down Higuel

The drone photographer might have been using a 450mm lens.

In reply to:

webber15: As the eagle is an immature bird,,there is a slim chance it was curious but where breeding raptors are known the drone should not have been in this area and should not be disturbing wildlife,,I don't know Bali"s regulations but in Europe he would have broken the law...

@Higuel - Retzius 10, Higuel 1 (probably your mom). Retzius is a God!!

webber15: In reply to retzieus,,if the eagle photo was taken in Europe then yes,,laws would be broken,,,a wild bird is being disturbed unnecessarily...

In the US, the same courtroom drama would unfold, however the eagle would get a subpoena and have to testify, in its own words, how it was disturbed, or annoyed.

Reddit demographic: as of May 2013, the median Reddit user is male (59%), 25–34 years of age, and is connecting from the United States (68%).

What more needs saying?

It's like being surprised by the DPReview demographic: armchair attorneys, armchair art critics, armchair media critics, and armchair journalists.

AlexBakerPhotoz: I totally gave up on stock photography sales and any commercial photography and now only do Fine Art work, my true love anyway. I do maintain a website and enjoy having it as a portfolio but know full well that internet sales are a pipe dream. Steal my work at alexbakerphotoz.com

Real nice work Sir. Are there any prior artists that influenced you?

In reply to:

ogl: RX100III's IQ is the level of top compact cameras with 1/1.7" sensor.

BTW, you can see ogl's non-thumbnail image here:

Maybe it's not just the camera, eh? Maybe it's a whole slew of factors... :)

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2979 comments in total)
In reply to:

Donnie G: Does 2500 comments here translate into 2500 sales, or is that just wishful thinking for Sony? Just curious, since the rangefinder style compact system camera category has become so crowded of late.

How do you measure hundreds of times better IQ?

On Never forget a Photoshop or Lightroom shortcut again article (70 comments in total)
In reply to:

Peter Evans: @ David Schloss, it's "the myriad keyboard shortcuts" not "the myriad of keyboard shortcuts".

If journalists don't use correct English what hope is there for the rest?

Apparently, none.

TheFreeDictionary Usage Note: Throughout most of its history in English myriad was used as a noun, as in a myriad of men. In the 19th century it began to be used in poetry as an adjective, as in myriad men. Both usages in English are acceptable, as in Samuel Taylor Coleridge's "Myriad myriads of lives." This poetic, adjectival use became so well entrenched generally that many people came to consider it as the only correct use. In fact, both uses in English are parallel with those of the original ancient Greek. The Greek word mrias, from which myriad derives, could be used as either a noun or an adjective, but the noun mrias was used in general prose and in mathematics while the adjective mrias was used only in poetry.

On Is it true? New service detects processed photos article (88 comments in total)

This wouldn't be needed if everyone used Adobe's Creative Cloud! ;)

Seriously, as cameras do more and more gimmicks in-camera, I wonder how sites such as this will fare? What would the site say about HDR or stitched images OOC?

On Did Amazon just patent the seamless background setup? article (133 comments in total)
In reply to:

tricpa68 tricpa68: Am I mistaken? I thought DPReview was acquired by Amazon a few years ago.

You guys should know first hand what Amazon is patenting....

Therefore I don't understand the goal of this article.

Or drink the Amazon Kool-Aid(R).

In reply to:

fortwodriver: This is NOT good news. Chaim Pikarski has been around for years. He was one of the people behind the original bait-and-switch camera stores in NYC. He's been subject to lawsuits for fraud and racketeering. Perhaps this is a cheap way for him to get back into the business outside of NYC.

Run, do not walk, from any Calumet store that opens back up in the US...

Thank you.

On September 10, 2012, it was announced that all Ritz, Wolf and other associated subsidiaries would close by the end of October, while a few would reopen under C&A Marketing alongside Ritzpix & RitzCamera.com on November 1, 2012, and other stores were sold individually or in small groups to other retailers, including three locations to Calumet Photographic. -source wikipedia

What a great idea! The Internet is a hybrid medium. I always welcome what photographers intended to achieve. I care about what I SEE and READ.

KodaChrome25: The negative commenters might, if they have not, visit the link above [Via: Prison Photography] for a fuller explanation of Mr. Tourlentes' work and why he creates it.

Thank you Mr. Britton for posting this. Much appreciated.

I think you've stated the problem eloquently. Attitude, in place of an open mind. Thanks.
