I was rejected due to missing exif data, but it was a manual lens which I explained in the description/technical. Perhaps you should add a rule about that?

Riquez: It actually seems like the mayor didn't like the dark side of his town shown & has tried to find some way to discredit.
I think Troilo has pushed his creative licence a bit but there doesn't seem like any gross cheating. 1 photo was in the wrong town, that is why he was disqualified.

If you read the investigation you will see It is not baseless.

WarrenKK: 1. magnesium fire starter, 2. sturdy garbage bag, 3. fishing line and 4. hook, 5. water purification tablets, Air Force signaling mirror, 6. Leatherman tool (in checked baggage in case I fly), 7. Spectra cord, 8. duct tape, 9. compass, 10. Ruger LCP (not if I fly). Some of this stuff would work in the city too.

Are you expecting a Zombie apocalypse?

On article First Impressions Review: Using the Canon PowerShot G16 (354 comments in total)
In reply to:

Paul Farace: I wanted a RF type Canon for so long... G7, G9, G11... they always seemed to fall short of what I wanted and those tiny plasticky peephole viewfinders... YECH! Then came Fuji with the X100 and XPro1 ... ahhhh

Sorry Canon... your SLRs are first rate and I have many, but I can't see any point in your G series.

You simply missed out then. I had the G7 (still do own it) & it was a really fun camera to use & easy to get impressive results. Now I have moved on, but don't underestimate the ability of this G series just because of some compromises.
G isnt the same league as X100.

DP - please get these reviews out sooner next time. If I want a tough camera like this I probably want it for summer holidays & so I have already bought one before your review comes out.

jcmarfilph: If it was taken with iPhone, it will definitely be put on the header. If not, a good ole smartphone word is enough. Such a pathetic world to see articles like this.

"Alcatel One Touch Idol X" doesnt quite have the same ring as "iPhone" does it?

Post-prossessing colours & contrast is fine tuning. It pales into being irrelevant once you consider framing or timing.

A photo of a man shouting? - looks like he's cheering at a sports event - but I cropped out the fact he was hit by an arrow in the knee.

A nice family picnic? Seconds later a rampaging bear attacks.

Now, who cares that I adjusted the sky to seem more blue?

This new subscription model would be 100 times better if I could pay my $600 for the year subscription, but then after that time if I stop subscribing: my software is frozen without any more updates, but still useable.
Then in the future I could decide to 'catch up' again by paying the months i missed or re-newing again for another full year.

The grey line is indeed thought provoking. On one side, in a disaster where people need help - you help. fk photos, people are dying.
On the other side, are you able to help?, would you just get in the way of people already helping?. You are better equipped to document, which is also important.

Wildlife documentaries raise an interesting question too - we mostly accept that those photographers dont intervene when the animal is in trouble. But if it was a human child, would they? Yes, of course. So its 'ok' to film an animal struggling to its death, but not a human. Sometimes i wonder how human that makes us?

In reply to:

Danlo: I have no trouble with this at all. How come people dont scream about all the survailance-cameras everywhere? You are being videotaped everywhere you go these days -pickin your nose, and scratching your crotch, so when a serious photographer tries a new aproach, people get upset??

You're both right, but i think the difference is that surveillance images are kept private, not shown online & we accept that its for security purposes. Its also faceless, in that we are not usually aware of it & there is no person present.
I imagine that if every security pole had a camera man, then when he swung it in your direction people would shout abuse, throw rotten fruit etc, but they dont do that because its robotic.
