Mssimo: I think he was on a digitalrev video. He did street photography with film/flash setup. He would get right in peoples faces. I have to give him some respect..he has ballz. I did not find any of the front page images on his site very good but I know he is a really good street photographer.
agree with DamenS,
compared to in-public photographers, Eric Kim street photo knowledge is juvenile.
Dan1964: I like Eric Kim I subscribe to him on youtube
Oh enough with this guy. Eric Kim doesn't have a single renown photographic portfolio.
he's a self-claimed "international street photographer".
He simply went to Japan & US and took pictures, posted on his blog, just like every other tourist on earth.
Abe Adew: funny how the "real" photographers with their "real" cameras giving a bad rap about this article. The reality is, we have a single App that brings a community closer together through the love of photography. Great people, great idea, honorable mission.
you see, "real" photographers.. no amount of your medium format portfolios can have impact as big as these people with their camphone.
"..It's just hip-sterness at its WORST.."
and of course, haters gonna hate.
"..This isn't some new drug or world peace plan."
i see some addiction (in taking pictures) + a small step to world peace.
gotta start somewhere, right?
Blaufeld: I tought that the meaning of photography was taking a meaningful image that tries to convey a message or to elicit an emotional response... Here we have casual snapshots laden with a filter and uploaded to a network saturated with "white noise" in the meager hope that someone will click the "like" button and fill the hopeless need for attention...I'm not a snob, I simply can't stand all this "social" crap.
"..I tought that the meaning of photography was taking a meaningful image that tries to convey a message or to elicit an emotional response... "
that's true no matter what camera you use. even camphone, perhaps?
so there's pro photographer, amateur, and now a snapshooter. new breed of photographer, right? noted.
bigdaddave: Have you been asleep dpreview, it's been out for ages
LOL!!!! some people..
Octane: Awesome that a manufacturer spends a lot of time and effort to make an 'old' camera much better and provides it as a free upgrade via software. I hope this will set an example!
tipit,ofcourse they want to sell more 7D. Canon is a for-profit company just like everybody else. they want to make money. They have to make money. Every company wants to drum up sales.
Do you live in a cave, son?
Cio Datan: this could be another big thing like when canon introduced video capability to 5D mk2, everybody was harping that canon must be out of its mind putting video in a DSLR but now everyone is still trying to catch up. this feature in the hands of creative people can be interesting.
"Canon slacked with the video department,"
oh you got to be kidding me. D800 and D4 came out 5-6 years after Canon 5DMkII shot plenty of gorgeous videos
