In 2011, a young couple posing for photos atop a 317 ft. waterfall in Yosemite Park slipped and fell to their deaths. A third person attempting to help them also died. Now THAT was a story.
They were going to call it the "BeExpensive" but that would have been too obvious.
vFunct: Again, just because you can operate a camera, doesn't mean you are the copyright holder.
Copyright law doesn't actually define what a photographer is when it assigns copyrights ownership. It only works on authorship.
That is why assistants, like this monkey, are never given copyrights, because they do not author the photograph.
At a photoshoot, I could go to my unpaid intern, without a contract, give him the camera, and tell him to take a creative shot, and I would have copyright.
Most people here have no idea that a real working professional photographer would have very little to do with operating a camera, which is why assistants taking photos are common.
And most working photographers spend most of their time planning a shoot. Mario Testino recently stated he spends about 2/3 of his time planning.
I think because most photographers here are amateurs, they think of photography as that limited view of operating a camera, like what a pro's assistant would do.
Think Matthew Brady
Those kids looking into the car could conceivably still be alive. It would be interesting to track them down.
Photography is about vision, and whether the photographer achieves this vision in-camera or with post-processing is largely irrelevant. I commend Elena Shumilova for her work.
I love my Lumix G5, and the GX7 looks like a real winner. Now, if Nikon would only make a full-frame version of a GX7, I'd be able to make use of all of my Nikkor lenses on a mirrorless body!
Percival Merriwether: I shoot with an Fm2/n on a regular basis. I like the size and the way it handles. I have a Lumix G5 for digital shooting, and love its size and handling also. I can't understand why Nikon can't come out with a full frame mirrorless/prismless DSLR (like Sony). What is the point of putting a mirror and pentaprism on an electronic camera?
Apparently you've never had a mirror go out of adjustment, or splatter your sensor with oil.

This design looks exactly like the camera icon on my Android tablet. Coincidence, or...
Once again, form over function.
camical: Hi everybody,
I am a D70s owner and new here.Please apologize if this question has already been asked before (I did not notice):How do consumers now make the difference when they go shopping for an X10 to their local vendor?Is there any distinctive sign between the "old" ones and the revised X10s in order to hit a revised one?Thanks in advance.
The cameras with the old sensor will have a BIG WHITE DOT on the box, and the cameras with the new sensor will have a BIG WHITE STAR on the box. In other words, "The pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle; the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true!"
Don't worry, Adobe will come out with the "Fuji Big White Blob Remover" tool in their next version of Photoshop.
