On 1939: England in Color (part 1) article (221 comments in total)

Wonderful! Being able to preserve a tiny slice of space/time virtually forever is the true magic of photography.

On Will consumer DSLRs be 'dead in 5 years?' post (134 comments in total)

The problem with DSLRs is the R. It's a relic from the stone age and newer EVFs will certainly make them obsolete sooner rather than later. Live View is a huge benefit of MILCs that DSLRs just don't do well.

Well, give 'em credit for being different but no EVF, no moveable LCD; no thanks.

Yes, it is possible to separate politics from photography. I like Leni Riefenstahl's photography for example. Does that mean I endorse Hitler?

Aside from politics this is a great example of the power of digital photography. This would have been much more difficult with film. Where can I find out exactly how this is done?

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 Review preview (354 comments in total)

So now Panny has 3 lines of lenses??? One with OIS, one without and a miniaturized one for the GM1? Seems kind of schizophrenic. They can't seem to decide which way to go.

On Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH OIS preview (181 comments in total)

It's unbelievable that at this late date Panny has not even acknowledged there's a problem! Has anyone sent in a problem lens under warranty?

On Walker Evans' iconic 'American Photographs' turns 75 article (39 comments in total)
In reply to:

reginalddwight: Evans' work for the Resettlement Administration in the 1930s represent the pinnacle of his career as a documentary photographer.

There are several historical photographs that best represent the Great Depression.

In addition to arguably the most iconic of the era, "Migrant Mother" by Dorothea Lange, the portrait of Allie Mae Burroughs by Evans superbly captures the raw anguish and uncertainty of the times.

.

And the irony is today's documentary photography will be dust in the wind in 75 years while FSA negatives will likely still be around. We have sacrificed permanence for digital convenience.

On Panasonic GX7 First Impressions Review article (1201 comments in total)

IF ONLY they'd used the same fullly articulating LCD from the G series this would be a no brainer. Why regress to a mediocre, crippled, semi-articulating screen when they've demonstrated the best touch LCD in the business??? They also left off the touch-to-shoot feature which is fantastic for street shooting. From what I can tell my "lowly" G3 is more capable at 1/3 the cost.

Very creative. Nice use of color. Wait, is that masking tape???

Mdphotovideo: In today's photography market why does Everyone feel they can be a professional photographer. It takes years of experience and a huge financial commitment to became a successful social event photographer.

People be aware just because you call yourself a professional does not mean you are. When you decide to do stupid things like shoot an event with an iPhone you bring a sense of amateur status to you and you lower industry standards. Please stop or go find another job that accepts crappy work.

Feeling insecure that you can't compete with more creative photographers?

On Shooting with the Leica M9-P article (648 comments in total)

Where is the double blind study showing the increadibleness, wonderfullness and unbelievable superiority of the Leica vs. THE WORLD?

On Shooting with the Leica M9-P article (648 comments in total)

Leica is an overpriced, underfeatured status camera for insecure photographers more interested in their image than the image. Certainly Leica images are top notch but no more so than other top brands at 1/5-1/3 the cost with 10x the features. Instead of acknowledging and properly correcting a major design flaw in the M8 (inadequate IR filter) they issued lens filters! Appalling! What if you want to use some obscure older lens? The M8 is an $8k boat anchor (well, now it's about $2k) unless of course you enjoy purple blacks and moire. With a quieter shutter, fully articulating LCD, 25MP, IBIS, the Sony a77 beats the M9 as a street camera hands down at 1/5 the price and is much more versatile.

On Preview:samsungnx200 (187 comments in total)

No EVF, no mic, no thanks. Unless they price it REALLY aggressively it's going nowhere. $899 is not aggressive. Why would anyone buy into this system when you have so many established players?

On First impressions shooting with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 article (269 comments in total)

They couldn't decide between OM-D and E-M5 so they went with both? Brilliant! It doesn't have an OM mount so that part is ridiculous. The only thing of interest is the in body stabilization for tele shots.
