On article In Fine Detail: Canon EOS 5DS / 5DS R In-Depth Review (667 comments in total)

From my experience working with the 5D mk1 dynamic range is rarely ever a problem and I really appreciate canons more consistent DR between 100 and 1600 ISO. I shoot ISO 1250 a lot of the time and according to dxo 5ds and d810 are on par in the lower light terrain when it comes to DR.
Anyway, the colors are really nice and that is what acounts for the success of most of my work. Sounds like a fab camera!

On article Erez Marom: On the importance of naming images (105 comments in total)

I name images only when it adds valuable information or depth to the subject—but certainly never to ridicule the pictures contents!

Bummer, this one! Finally some quirky not too quirky camera that really delivers some awesomeness! Want it, if it sells below, say $1500.

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‹.

wildbild: The usual amateur competition pictures.
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.

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Review (880 comments in total)

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«.
