On Lomography launches Russar+ for L39 and M mount cameras article (120 comments in total)
In reply to:

TWIZEEL: just few words to clear off skeptics -
BRASS - that is perfect optical instruments material, very stable for time.
Hand made - means all lenses have been setup on optical bench for adjusting. That is not mass production conveyor stuff. So it no need software corrections inside or outside camera.
No batteries, no wires : ))

You cant buy it ten bucks per kilo in moscow streets. I've visited russia in the past and last year and it is now definitely not USSR. Shops full of people and goods. Salary and wages much better, people looks happy. So may be some of you cant bear mr putin but russians likes him.

so dont buy Carl Zeiss and Leica anymore : ))
you know that is very naive to put a label on people.

carabas: Let's forget the whole "but the pictures are misrepresented" angle, let's also forget the "pah, it's all photoshop" angle, let's even forget the technique, let's just concentrate on aesthetics...

It's sickeningly kitsch.

kitsch, possible yes but kitsch is form of art, so you can exercise with documentary shooting, or "rubbish bin" postmodern, it is up to you. Lot of even more ...sickeningly... sh*t over there now : ))

VadymA: Beautiful work but the images would surprise me more if a typical mom who lives on a farm in rural Russia took them (most likely some time between long hours of farm work to support her kids and drinking husband). For a wealthy professional photographer, who Elena really is, they look rather standard IMO. She is definitely a talented artist, knows her gear and how to apply clever post-processing for dreamy effects but so as thousands of other professional photographers. So the article sounds more like an ad campaign to me than a true success story.

...(most likely some time between long hours of farm work to support her kids and drinking husband)... Gosh, one more cliche.
Vadim, that is doesnt matter what is sounds article like, all of you "no pity critiques" just very jealous. She is good visual artist, thats it!
In that instance she just using a camera, which is just a tool. Most of DP readers has a lot of nice tools but they has no talent. Maybe you one of them : ))

brycesteiner: Why are the lions not scared of the drones or robots? In one of the pictures on the NatlGeo site you can see the shadow of the robot. It's close.

"cause they use a nose beyond the sight. they trust more smell, than sound.

TWIZEEL: I know the way - OVERPRICED product never sells. Even 600 bucks for conveyor style of production for lens still expencive. 20 years ago hand-adjusted on optical bench Carl Zeiss was cheaper.

the Buck has been much more valuable... yes they've been more but I charged the same money like today for my job.

On KaleidoCamera teaches your DSLR new light field tricks article (48 comments in total)

I think soon or late we will forget about clumsy lenses. The Photography will suffer the same fate as the biological vision. The eye, a very imperfect optical engine, coupled with the vast computational power of the brain, continuously scans the space and gives a sharp image with huge dynamic range.

In reply to:

Fixx: Does this work with RAW-photos or does the processing produce JPEG-files? That is, if I have distortion control enabled in my camera, do I get corrected NEF-files to my Lightroom library?

I don't shoot jpeg .... that is quite amateurish, I do most of my reportage, events in jpg, just setup right profile and go. Even some real estate job if it is urgent I use jpg.

In reply to:

mskad: Too bad they didn't test the NEW Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G-ED lens. The one tested is the OLD version. The new lens is amazingly good and relatively affordable.

if you you know they are ... amazingly good ... so why bother? People has got lot of old ones though.

starwolfy: Come on ! What a crappy cam hahaha.
My Nikon V1 focus much faster than this and is 1000x cheaper...muhahaha

Comparing a medium format camera to a FF camera is like comparing a FF camera with DX...that makes no sense and people who stick to medium format just know why. Just sayin'

: )) sorry, I dont want to read his mind. That is not humor exercising forum, isnt it?

Man, you a really kid. You are having fun with your V1, but Leica S for real professional with real job.You know even screwdriver has a different (more than 10 times) prices, one for house works, other for job in garage workshop for professional master. Please think about next time when you typing your "muhaha"

I'm one of "old-timer's mind" and want to tell HappyGuy - dont be like frisking puppy. Cause it have made not for you to have a fun. But for serious wolfs, who want to know all about you. I dont worry about spys, that is more about advertising sharks and manipulative politics.

TWIZEEL: could be better if 12 - 24 or 35 - 70

I dont need "sweet spot" I want to do my job as good as I can. In nearly of 40 years to be photographer I use wide angle and next step is portrait angle, in most of my shoots. Even for landscapes.
