On Get the story behind the photograph news story (11 comments in total)

Definetly a book marker!! Excelent site, with excelent interviews!

The only "bad" thing is that most pictures are a bit on the sad/gruesome side. But I do not blame the photographers for those; they are just doing their jobs. News Media and such that prefer to buy those kinda images instead of other ones. Something to think about...

I say it's boring because ALL discussions about ANYthing in Brazil end up being "PT's fault" and blah blah blah.
That's a proper discussion on Economics or Politics sites, forums and message boards. Not on sport, TV, entertainment and everwhere else websites.

Look, I'm not for the WC here as well.

But....
1) It's happening. Complaints should have started seven years ago;
2) Don't start such boring argument here, on a photography site.

Lars Rehm: Nice to see the winner's team gets to play with it first ;)

"Nice to see the winner's team gets to play with it first ;)"

I doubt it.

But considering how Germany (and Netherlands..... as always) have been playing, they would make good World Champions.

You mean, Sony QX?

And yes, it's a bit childish to do it here.

@Barney - You have spelled "K-3" wrong!

In reply to:

peevee1: Wait, wasn't A3000+18-55/3.5-5.6 going for like $279? How low are they aiming this thing?

No denying that there is a market for these... things.

But from a company like Sony one would expect SOME standards. Not something like a GE camera.

Worst prank. Ever.

It sucks to be an Aussie (Sony fan) right now.

YES! FINALLY! Finally I've realised where Sony's going to! How como NONE of you realised that before? It's SO obvious!

After Sony failed to beat Canikon on the Pro market, Advanced Amateur market and Entry Level market, they've come up with another strategy (and THIS one WILL take the cake): the most BORING and UNNECESSARY camera market!

If you thought that the Rebels and D3xxx where boring -yearly- upgrades of their former selves, now Sony comes with something sooner than a year, even MORE boring and with features you can't even call "upgrades".

See? That's all part of a bigger plan.

Don't need to thank me :)

(Kodak is awaiting for you, Sony)

In reply to:

samfan: DPR guys, seriously, please. First impression is the exact opposite of a review. Stop calling it that. Don't hunt for clicks this way.

100% Agreed!

This "First Impressions REVIEWS" term is totally silly and unnecessary. Go back to "Previews" (because that's what they are!) and be done wit that.

On Hungarian law bans photos taken without seeking consent news story (325 comments in total)
In reply to:

bobbarber: 1) Does the government of Hungary feel this way about surveillance photos they take, or do they not take surveillance photos?

2) I received some attitude like this when I was taking photos in South America. My wife is South American, and I visit often. The narrative goes something like this: "You are a gringo, and taking photos of people (and the ornate interiors of churches, etc.) to sell for millions of dollars in a National Geographic spread." The narrative is believable to them, because they have heard it from their parents, beloved leftist professors, etc. In my case (and I suspect in most people's cases), the narrative was completely false.

I do agree that there is room for concern here, especially when photos may be used for publication. For personal use, I don't see the point. Also, I wonder about the politics here. It took me many years (decades) to realize that the governments in non-U.S. countries (I default to romanticizing them) can be as corrupt as they come (or not).

HHmmm, I see.

In my country (Brazil) I never had this kind of problem. My problems were more of those classic "you cannot use a 'professional' (DSLR) camera here", when trying to make non-paid photoshoots for friends.

Also I didn't encounter any issues in Argentina (Buenos Aires).

Not that I'm a huge street/candid photographer, mind you.
Since I ready too much DPReview and stories like in this News, I'm extra careful while shooting unkwnown people but... at least here, I know it's more of a personal thing and fear than an actual problem.

Thanks for your input. If I ever go to Ecuador I'll be careful there :)

"South America" is a pretty big continent so YMMV.

Where, exactly, in which country, did you find problems?

In reply to:

neo_nights: I bet you guys do that on purpose.

I can really imagine a day in the office like:

"Hey, dudes, wanna see something cool?"
"Yeah. What?"
"I'll post an unboxing slideshow on the front page!"
"YEEEEEAAAAAAHHHHH"

You guys are naughty :o)

That explains a lot!

On Revamped camera and lens feature search now live! news story (35 comments in total)
In reply to:

Michael J Davis: Nice work!

But...went to compare lenses - clicked on them, couldn't see what to do next so went to 'compare side-by-side' & it gave me a list of ALL lenses. How do I get the compare selection to work?

It's a bit small and easy to miss, but the comparometer worked fine here.

In reply to:

aramgrg: With such costs, why haven't they bought(or at least rented) D800E, I think the difference would have been visible!

Maybe the software they had to control the camera, the stiching and such was already made for a Canon camera?

In reply to:

PinPoint: I predict Oly will make mirrorless camera with APSC and FF sensor not long from now, when competition gets stiffer...consumer are smarter now, not necessary bigger sensor always better but bigger sensor can bring image quality to the next higher level...

@JEROME - I think the only option for Oly is to develop a new sensor technology. But they have never done that, so..... they'll have to wait someone else start doing it (perhaps the long waited Organic Sensor thing) and then adopt it.

This was my least favorite interview. A bit shallow, as if it was an interview made via email (you know, when you send all the questions, the person replies and that's it).

But I surely would like to see this guys face when Barny openly mentioned someone else's executive and with such a strong and honest statement like "Canon and Nikon would help us" :p

Well, I guess it'll be hard to beat the interview with the Fuji guy.
