On article Design, looks and desire: Olympus does it again (396 comments in total)

The reason I like Fuji gear is because it seems to have been designed by photographers. Using the camera becomes part of the enjoyment, it's like a dog that's always excited to go for a walk and encourages you to pick up the strap. My experience with my current Nikon is not as engaging, I'm always trying to convince myself that the other advantages are worth it, but in truth its just not as enjoyable to use.

Shunda77: Lol, my D5100 crop sensor has more DR than this new Canon.

Why would I want 50mp of blown highlights and low shadow recovery? resolution only works if there is data there to work :)

I guess I would expect a camera with a NZ$8400.00 price tag to not have a rusty sensor.

I have to be honest, I never thought I would be reading about a gold plated brick with stingray skin on it on this site!
It has been a week of firsts!
Stingray skin! ha!

jkoch2: Times change and yet they don't. Externally, the jets of 1969 and 2014 look about the same and cruise at about the same speeds. Some features of the engines, circuitry, and navigation have changed, but much of the air control sytems in Aurora, Illinois have changed little since 1969, and we still depend flight tracking on a "black box" crash data recovery technology that cry for an update.

Ticketing, fuel consumption, and tarmac logistics are probabably much more efficient than in 1969, despite vast increases in volume, but the cost of security has skyrocketed, and baggage damage or loss may be persistent.

All modern aircraft were a direct result of world war 2 bombers, most of the development occurred in the 40's and 50's and hasn't changed because there isn't much more that can change. The basic aerodynamic principles involved set limitations on the design of these aircraft. All changes now relate to areas where technology can still advance, like structural engineering with composites, engine refinements and navigational/electronic advancements. The reliability of these machines is simply amazing and reflects the huge investment humans made in aircraft (even if initially for violent reasons).

DotCom Editor: "...even this component is lovingly crafted from brushed aluminum. It's easy to be cynical, but this kind of attention to detail is exactly why Leica fanatics stick with the company."

This will make my photographs better how, exactly?

A bike? seriously? how about you just buy the Panasonic version (for cheaper than a bike) and shoot exactly the same photographs?

Direct link | Posted on Jun 14, 2014 at 11:10 UTC

And yet 9 out of 10 Leica users would hang it around their neck and go out for a "shoot" anyway.
I mean, who would be seen out in public with anything else!!

vFunct: The bigger problem are the photographers that can't/don't get events to pay them for full usage rights upfront, so they don't have to deal with this kind of crap in the first place.

It really is only a problem for the n00b photographer that charges per image, instead of selling a package deal for the overall event itself.

The business model photographers should be using should only deal with the major client - the event organizer - rather than each individual attendee of the event.

It's pathetic that there are photographers that still exist with that kind of business model. It's not worth chasing pennies, so don't do it, and work your portfolio so that you can charge the big event organizers instead of every event attendee.

I rest my case. I will continue to embrace modern technology and the freedom it brings the truly creative among us, and I will continue to oppose the elitist arrogance that is rife in "professional" photography. You are from the film era, and in my experience, this is exactly the type of person that loathes the reality of the digital era. The world has changed, photography has changed, the days of charging a fortune for work that any artistic amateur can match are well and truly over. Deal with it.

Because some of us like to pull the finger to professional arrogance and artistic elitism that infects photography like a disease.
