Joe Ogiba: 1080i ? Really ? Poor Fuji, they still don't get it.

1080i at 60fps. An option for 30fps?

dpLarry: The photographer didn't go 'calm down guys' but was like 'go go, damn! I'm getting good shots here'

I know the replies here are speculations said in mirth only and that the posters don't really know what happened.

Will present myself as a witness if it comes to that.

atlien991: I like that this story appeared here. It serves as a welcome reminder that while we all (to various degree) share an interest and dare I say love for photography, our views and thoughts on the real world are quite a different thing.

As proven by so many of the comments in this thread. And it also stands as evidence toward a question that has become somewhat common: where are the women photographers?

If I were a woman I might decline hanging out in internet forums of mysogynist a-holes who believe women are the cause of their own oppression.

I appreciate the poster who pointed out that while we understand that most violence is perpetrated by men most victims are also men. That point and perpective really broadens the discussion in a healthy way, I feel. In that same vein, it is important to remember that violence comes in many shapes and forms for us photographers to document and for everyone to think on (and hopefully act on). Striking a person physically is but one manifestation. And it is NOT the most common or most deadly.

Women (and frankly anyone not a white male) are subject to an economic inequality which is deadlier by far and far more prolific and widespread. In fact, it is this inequality that so often coerces women into relations with men that they might avoid if they could ensure their own economic security without the man. While I havent appreciated many of the comments in this thread, I do find the space and willingness to discuss refreshing and encouraging.

Yeah just look at the economically privileged white male above - Maggie tolerated him because she needed his weekly pay cheque?

Sounds like she did abandon him so why does it need be be quoted as if it's an inaccurate description of his? You don't like that characterization? Well how about when a couple go out and the man choofs off leaving her there, is he treating her well?

Then we see top left photo she's pointing her arm out while addressing him rather sternly. I suppose that is her "telling" him, but when his communication is described that is a "rage".

She is telling him to get out of the house, it's not her house!

From there it turns to crap and his physical violence is inexcusable.

They're two 'Jerry Springer' types (see below) who we laugh at on Jerry Springer, so why should we take them seriously now?

RichRMA: I find many of these wide DR images are lifeless, flat and lacking in dynamics. If blacking out some shadows results in a more dynamic, engaging image, why go HDR?
As for Rambus, things aren't that pretty right now.

I'd played around with the contrast and brightness and made it look better. Contrast especially.

Hey critics, they've said their prototype sensor is 128 x 128. The sample above is bigger than that and is described as a theoretical comparison.

So that ain't even it!

Jeff Peterman: Amazing how our expectations have changed. To me, these are grainy and over saturated compared to modern digital images!

Some people prefer the noise of a vinyl record audio reproduction, though they call it "warmth".

Would make a good wedding camera.

I suppose better than a Bushmaster, just.

They look good but that's largely due to post-processing. He limited himself when he chose the iPhone and only did it to draw attention to himself, that's not putting the customer first.

Also the whole instragram look feels like another fad - how are they going to react looking at these 20 years from now? Too bad the originals were taken with a POS (Piece Of...) camera.

My faves,

I:7, Roger Federer. Looks like an oil painting.
III:29, Space shuttle/basketball. Great juxtaposition, though prob setup. I reckon you'd be watching the space shuttle rather than play ball at a time like that.

A few too many election photos, but otherwise great.

starwolfy: I just Hope this camera will fail and not sale because I don't like Sony.
(a guy who remembered he bought a super small nice wow genius NEX who electronically failed after 2000 exposures -_- )

Couldn't have happened to a nicer person!

Yes, 'self-shots' are very popular now.

bradleyg5: I will get this camera and keep it in my Porsches glove box.

But disregard capitalization and full stops, they're not so important.

Nice photo of course, but curious how a 1 second shutter can be utilised in a flying aircraft?

nofumble: Sony demise is near as they keep coming to market with these kind of products.

How many people can afford a $2800 fixed focal length camera?

They've got a few other cameras in their line-up, some quite affordable. I recommend perusing the Sony camera section of this site.

IcyVeins: I think DPR loves my contributions to these review threads because in this one for example I am still singlehandedly responsible for one third of the posts, and this is only the apetizer, I guarantee you I'll be in full bwon attack mode when the RX100, NEX-5R, and NEX-6 reviews come out, I'll be ripping Canikon and Samsung to shreds for the inferiority and general ineptitude.

I'm presently researching attention deficit disorder and I love your contributions.
