On Olympus Stylus 1s camera announced in Japan article (93 comments in total)
In reply to:

justmeMN: Headline:

"Olympus Stylus 1s Not Good Enough for Europe or The Americas." :-)

It's a marketing strategy, kiddo!!
You want to sell wholesale junk nowadays?
Tell people that it's unavailable in their area,
just a few items left,
your c.o.d. area doesn't apply..
etc.
and they will brave sleet & snow to come and get it.
Why Eve ate from that tree? Because it was forbidden.

John McCormack: Hoping against hope that the firmware updates in the 1s will be available to the original Stylus 1 - a great camera! 99% of shooters don't need 1" sensors.

In reply to:

Jay Jenner: Outstanding picture, well done. Been there myself but failed to shoot anything as good as this.

same here..
Old Faithful goes on every 45 minutes if I'm not wrong, and the mist lives only a few fleeting seconds. Very hard to set and turn a polarizer filter in that short spam of time. And we are not talking wind direction yet.
But he did it.

CORRECTION: It was The Lone Start Geyser.
Look for raibows images taken with polarizer filter.

In reply to:

tecnoworld: Gorgeous! Did you use a polarizer for the sky?

NOW you are talking!!
I never said you were an impostor, my dear friend. Your portfolio goes beyond eloquency. BUT...Since a polarizer filter voids reflections, and since the rainbow is water mist reflected on the light, I ass-umed that the short piece of rainbow was an add on (I have Tiffen Filters for that, and I can put a rainbow anywhere I wish on the image) There you have it: you beat physics.
Great caption.

Yes, he did.
No, he won't tell.
If he says yes to circular pol, he'd be admitting the rainbow add on.
Rainbows cannot be taken with a circular polarizer on the lens.

On Piling Detail in the What would that look like up really close challenge (5 comments in total)

You mean to tell me that you took this BEAUTIFUL image with a 250$-puny 1/1.7" sensor-amateur-dedicated-3 years old-camera?
Why, didn't you use the Olympus-OM-DE-M5?
Nor the Sony a7 II, nor any of its price winner sisters?
What about the Canon-EOS-7D-Mark II?
Aren't you aware that it takes at least a 5000$ photo gear in your bag to be creative?
What a sacrilege!!
Are you a Communist?
Don't you hold any respect for consumerism?
People like you ruins the economy, not to mention the normal flow and glow of our bonfire of vanities.
You, and your little camera should be banned for life from this prestigious temple of consumerism.

It would be better if you had added the infrared technique used, be it IN camera, over the lens or during editing.

Continuation...
It just happens that your dad & mine were molded with the same tool. Mine is still alive, pushing 84 and just discovered The Beatles (thanks to the Ipod I give him) Forty years ago he banned them at home. Yes, I guess we belong to the generation where the younger got the older brother's shirts & pants when he outgrew them, and the dog ate table's leftovers, and boy's underwear was black or dark brown for obvious reasons. Cod liver oil was the magical panacea to never declare yourself sick to miss school. A straight gear bicycle was enough for us. Why do you want to go faster with a new 10 gears bike?
Your good ol' daddy was so right, Marty.

Marty,
You are a beautiful soul, bro.
Of course I never meant to call you cheap. No Way!! But I wholeheartedly agree with your beloved dad's principle. On the other hand have you noticed that we can no longer repair a 10 years old home appliance, even if you look up for pieces? Good luck to find them, and when you do, you'll see that it's cheaper to buy a new one. Just one thing here, my dear Marty: Why is it that the washer machine ALWAYS breaks dead just the week after the big sale at Sears?
