On Hasselblad Lunar interchangeable lens camera now shipping news story (371 comments in total)

Tales of marketing games and toys...
I feel pity for the buyers...
At least Leica wouldn't have its model photographed with stains on the lens hood.

The game of publicity....

Blame, if any, is not upon mags and dailys, but in the people buying them.
Every buy is practically a "vote of confidence" to the content they host in their pages. No matter if it is plain text or photo or both.
As a matter in fact we buy the reality we chose therefore we like to perceive.

On Adobe Photoshop CC: What it means for photographers news story (1879 comments in total)
In reply to:

.Sam.: This interview was supposed to help Adobe's cause?
It just shows the extent of their miscalculations.

Μiscalc started back in '97, carried on in 2001, pursued with greed in 2006 and they all shown up and evaluated in 2010.
Seems that cooperation of creative minds and money makers is rather difficult.
As about PS... I have purchased all PS from 2.0 to 7.0 and all CS Suites from 1.0 to 5.5 as well as LR from Beta.
I still work most of the time in PS CS2 with all the great plugins I bought at that time which I still upgrade. Apart ACR I still cannot find any major improvement in pp except some "creative", to my opinion, effects...
My most valuable partner remains my Eizo CG monitor and my Epson Photo Printer...

Hypocrisy...
The same people who complaint here about Nikon or whatever is the same people who collect their money usually invested in toxic venues...
Spare me your pharisaism...
C'mon people show us some mercy with all these big mouthed statements...

On Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? news story (1514 comments in total)

Although I voted for D800, for sheer quality i think its main advantage it is the cost comparing with its abilities.
I think it is quite significant the Panny GH3 for its versatility in all aspects.
Fuji's X-Pro is remarkable along with the Oly OMD EM-5.
Sony's R1 is significant for the miniaturization effort but I doubt if Sony's corporate culture will ever allow the production of a top product no matter the designer's effort.
Canon just produces new models just like Japan's motorcycle industry produced new bikes models in 90's ...

On The Time magazine showcases Top 10 photos of 2012 news story (147 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jason Racey: Time is obviously judging the content not the execution. Without a back story none of these are particularly good photographs. We are presented with a camera-phone snapshot of a boy crying. Why? Did his soccer team lose? He dropped his ice cream? Oh his father was killed. How? Was it a lawnmower accident? Oh he was killed by a Syrian army sniper. Ok now I get it. Yes that's a "Photograph of the Year"!

Time is in the business of selling human tragedy. This is what they reward. The technical execution of the photograph is secondary.

Old times classic recipes. Unfortunately...

aris14: Well, I would like to read Minolta instead of Sony in this review.
This is my only ...complaint!
Sony seems that produced an excellent cam...

Sony wants to sell, nothing more, errr correction, with the highest possible profit margin...
So bye-bye Minolta brand (economies of scale that is in advertising at least)...
Sony seeks the quality that will return immediate profit and if there is a reason in the future for more profits if (case study) if old brands foe some reason have, let's say, an attractive appeal the next day all its cameras will rebranded as Minolta...
So simple...

Very interesting cam though I have the feeling that Sony is trying to find its audience.

In reply to:

wallbreaker: panasonic always have problem with their sensor producing noise even at lower ISO

Oh yes...
And Canons have issues in white clipping...
And Fujis in fringing...
And Sonys in rendering colors (mainly the green)...
And Olys in their engines...
And Nikons in speed to say the least
but after all there is always something is better than the others...
Isn't it?

In reply to:

jcmarfilph: Cut the crap DPR. Review the real thing.

Get the new X-S1 (with the new sensor). Review it side-by-side with this toy.

State the advantages and disadvantages of each feature (brighter lens, manual zoom, motorized zoom, larger sensor, EVF etc.)

If you can't do it, you will just prove again to us your bias toward Panasonic and Canon superzoom.

No matter what we are saying here, DPR makes an annual or so review (comparison test)the last 3 or 4 years with all bridge super zoom cams and guess...
They got it all right...
And yes... Pana and Canon usually take the awards...
Usually Pana and that is right by all means...
Fuji are great cams and innovative, but when I saw the purple fringing some two years ago in the cam of then days I was deeply disappointed...
And I loved the specs of that cam, but one way or another it's all about a lens mostly when we talk about photography...
