On Art Wolfe: In search of Emperor Penguins in Antarctica article (31 comments in total)

Wonderful, those good old days, where you could get your $25.000 investment back from selling pictures of penguins! Long gone…

wildbild: This product is lacking ›Anschlußfähigkeit‹, what translates as connectivity as well as cultural integrability. In other words, bloody no one understands what the thing is good for. It's a gimicky thing that does not solve any problems.
It is even less useful than a crappy little sculpture of a pink hippo is.
And I bet the newly invested 50M are wasted here.
The technology might come in handy in some 30 or 40 years time for something else we cannot even think of today.
But the attempt to force this thing to be a marketable product is a serious waste of energy and talent.

There is technology. 1
Then there is the application of technology. 2
And then there is the integration of applied technollogy into social systems. 3

What you are talking about is 1 and 2.

What I was talking about is 3.
3 is the most problematic and advanced. And I still think Lytro is about to fail miserably.

But anyway: the hole debate we are having reads like a stupid arms race. I am out.

I perfectly know how new technologies evolve. And of course you have to start somewhere.
But here is the thing: Phone companies in the 1960 did not try to market digital phones right away selling it bundled with clunky boxes that would retransform the digital signal into the analogue signal used for standard landlines. They waited another 30 years or so till digital tecnologies in other sectors had catched up an a digital telephone signal could be integrated into a larger digital ›ecosystem‹.

I really don't understand why they can't upscale their powershot sensors and come up with an Eos camera equipped with 274 megapixels.
That would be a real leap foreward.
And dynamic range would be 11.7 fstops too.

Nothing outstanding in my view.

There isn't much to explain: our species is destroying their species habitat and all we see in that photo is how cute the monkey looks sheltering from the rain.
The same kind of ignorance against the state of the world can be found in many of the other photos as well. To me it's like going round eating cake while visiting a camp with starving poeple. It's obscene, this kind of ›competition‹.

In deed I am.
And I am criticizing the increadibly unreflected use of images!
Take the orangutan e.g. and—for a moment at least—do not think about how cute it is but do actually look at what it is sitting on: a stump!
I find this kind of usage of images at least irresponsible, if not disgusting.

wildbild: could have had a better viewfinder/prism with larger magnification.
otherwise a brick solid piece of enginiering from canon.
and to all the megapixel complainees: how often do you print your pictures 30x 40" on a daily basis? hahaha!!!

upsample your pictures in PS and delete all exif date from the files and no one will notice. this obsession with megapixels is laughable as long as most people use zoom-lenses

In reply to:

MaxTheHorse: Genuine no-troll question. In the UK this camera is being sold for almost exactly 2x the price of the APS-C Nikon D7100. It's only £230 less than the new Full Frame D750. That seems somewhat over the top. What am I missing?
One other observation. Most people agree that both Nikon and Canon are feeling the heat from mirrorless. With the new (relatively) lightweight D750, Nikon at least seem to be going some way to trying to address one disadvantage of the DSLR relative to mirrorless, namely weight. So how come Canon have put out a new DSLR that is not only heavier than the Nikon APSC equivalent but also their new FF D750? As I say, not trolling, just genuinely curious.

it's the price of a mirror box that is flapping 10x per second...

Thanks for posting this review so quickly after the camera's introduction.
The funny thing with this camera that I noticed is, that raw files from ISO400 onward look much sharper than those shot with lower ISOs … still rubbing my eyes.

i don't get why sigma's engineers think theese cameras are operated hand held. the should have a second tripod mount where the sd-card door is..

Given the fact that they are no professional photo agency I think 70—90% would be an appropriate share »that brings dignity to the photographer«.
