It's certainly got the blues. Must be lonely up there in those lofty spheres.
Mind-blowing. Hard to imagine a more valid, worthwhile (and demanding) use for photography.
ArcaSwiss: 16 Megapixels seems so passé
Yes, 13 would be much more original.
What building on DSC_4716?
Would be nice to know more about the 561 models. What of? How related to the <1000 prototype parts? I am sure it's lovely but to appreciate the material and the craftsmanship you need to get to hold it. The design is only part and hard to judge from low res pics. Certainly looks like a well honed interpretation of Leica aesthetics. Like the softness of its boxiness, the rounded edges that go on the lens as well. Couldn't they have made 10 of them and put them on show in the world's biggest design museums and let people hold them for 10$ a minute? The upper left pic on additional images seems to be of an earlier prototype, fortunately they did away with the crease on the top plate on the final model?
Surprising how many are left cold by these images. Greg Fallis' comment on her website ("Not just any dress") expresses his (and my) feelings about her work so eloquently that I can't add a word. What makes me visit dpr every day is the huge diversity. The speed with which the site has expanded to cover all imaginable aspects of photography from tech to art is impressive.
This is the photo I always wanted to take. It's perfect as is. Congratulations!
How about silkscreen prints from your smartphone? Apply light sensitive emulsion to screen, put your phone on top, expose for x minutes, wash away nonexposed parts, apply paint with a squeegee and voilà: it's art and craft! Starting set with 2 4x6" screens, 4 color tubes, 250ml bottle of emulsion, squeegee, pack of 50 sheets of paper in 10 different colors and textures, solvent for cleaning phone and screen, cleaning pads, only 250€. All comes in a handy cardboard briefcase. For an additional 50€ you get a really neat apron to protect your clothes.
Funny to see that I am using a "historical" camera (Sony R1). Happy you included it anyway. Have been thinking to upgrade to a system for years but afraid it might turn out to be a downgrade.
I have an earlier version of the MPod with a bracket that slides onto a frame attached to my iPhone. I am quite happy with it for somewhat unexpected reasons: The frame doubles as protection for the phone and the tripod as a removable (and flexible) handle which makes the phone much more comfortable and enjoyable to use as a camera. As a tripod it's sort of tricky to get in position and it creeps but still better than any of the cheap table tripods I have tried. Unfortunately one joint has come loose so one leg tends to come off but can be snapped back and still works.
Manual FOCUS?! I didn't realise it was THAT close!... Er... To where? Will it crash into the earth?
Very inspiring. I certainly will use my iPhone camera on midsummer holidays and try to SEE. The last winner must be in the wrong category. Those guys don't look like travellers. They probably work there every day. Or maybe it's a typo: should be travail, not travel. Great pic though.
tabloid: All very nice...but its done to a jpg.It would be much nicer if all this could be done to a raw image, and then once corrected (in raw) converted to a jpg as a final finished image.
I wish there was a 'Photoshop Raw' with all the same menus that the ordinary photoshop has for jpg manipulation.
I always work on tif files in ps
Couldn't there be a way to remove moire in pp? Like noise. Or even in camera like aberrations etc?
I wish I could make such beautiful CAD renderings or are they models?
rurikw: It's nice that they still come out with these old wysiwyg things in spite of pp.
stevo23 that's a good point which I missed since I am mostly interested in shooting architecture with wide angle lenses where you get enough dof without having to go down to diffraction-prone apertures.
Great pointers. I am so preoccupied with s I keep forgetting t. A TS lens might have some FOV advantage (easily overcome by zooming out a bit/ using a slightly wider lens) but I suspect optical deterioration at edges in shift would be similar to blur in pp. I get decent results even at 100% stretch. PS is a great interpolator. So the advantages of a TS lens over pp would be mainly wysiwyg and tilt. Certainly valid ones and at a price within reach of mortals.
It's nice that they still come out with these old wysiwyg things in spite of pp.
"Technology that defines everyday life"?! Now not even North Korea provides a refuge from that!
joesuburb: I don't have a, "trained eye" and I'm not a professional. Also as a disclaimer, I do own an OM-D, so maybe I'm just psychologically tricking myself.
But, I keep hearing in professional reviews that the Fuji has the best image quality in it's market. But when I look at the OM-D comparison under raw, I see better colors, more detail and an overall better image up to ISO 800. Then above ISO 800 it seems like the Fuji doesnt resolve anymore detail and just has NR applied that would equal out with applying NR on the OM-D.
Am I crazy or just wrong?
I have been wondering the same ever since the first test shots from one of these trans-x equipped fujis. I guess the hype is mainly about low noise on high iso jpegs which is all very fine but I am more interested in raw at base iso which certainly does not impress even after the Lightroom update. Lots of sweeping statements about this or that cam having superior IQ around. Believing your own eyes rather than such declarations might not be a bad idea.
