jonny1976: Unimpressed both technically and conceptually, cliche theme
With medium quality. But she is a nice young girl from germany. Good to win.

Look at HCB images of India. He had no Sony senor.

villagranvicent: Take a picture of a woman in an upscale NY setting, it's called fashion and will be published in Vogue. Take a picture of the same woman in third world setting, suddenly it´s called photojournalism and will be published in National Geographic.

Fashion is not Photojournalism.

babart: Many of those commenting on the contest winner are so pathetic. Go get a life somewhere. Somewhere else.

webber15: The future for this new release looks very bleak to me...

1...no ibis...
2...no 4k (or was it 8k)
3...no tilty/twisty screen for selfies...

Dead before it even hits the shelves ;-)

I'm a retired pro-photojournalist with 50 years under my belt.
IBIS - I have no need for it.
No video - I shoot stills, video? Get a cam-recorder.
No tilty/twisty screen. Get a selfies stick.

The genre is photojournalism.

Nice try - No cigar.

Real-World Samples.

That are almost/preface to a review of a camera.

Certainly, they are not artistic.

Just mundane images.

Please have your photographers staff post some creative work.

These firmware updates are like refried beans. They can't get on the first try.

On article AP cuts ties with Pulitzer-winning photographer (166 comments in total)

OMG!

Be gone: Photoshop and LightRoom has no revelance in photo journalist images.

Many photographers lost their jobs because of the above.

Spooky.

GaryJP: DPReview users trash one of the world's greatest war photographers. Excuse me while I laugh.

You so right.

Not many Pro's linger on this site.

It's about gear.

jsandjs: Only experienced photographer got good shot when he put his camera above his head.

I do at some times --- it's a "Hail Mary' grab.

In reply to:

fad: I don't think it matters much whether this photo was faked.

Why? What makes this photo memorable is not its documentary quality, but that it captures the idea of war in general, and of this war in this place and time in particular. No one cares, outside of the photo, who the subject was. And no one is using it for forensic purposes.

The Iliad is still the supreme poem of war, even if there never were an Achilles, or a Hector, or a Priam or a Helen. Why? It captures the idea of war in all its complexity, its glory and its horror. An inferior poem that was historically accurate would not be as great.

Many of the great street photos we admire were faked. But they have artistic truth.

Now if Muybridge faked his horses or George Roger has created a fake death camp, that would be a different matter. But here the reality of what happened does not matter.

"Many of the great street photos we admire were faked. But they have artistic truth."

Name them. Post them. If you do state the citation.

What is artistic truth. A fact or opinion.

Opinions exceed mores than facts.

RichRMA: You photograph enough people in battle zones getting shot and shooting, you are bound to capture one happening at the time it happens. Armchair critics aren't too far off from the people who analyzed shadows in Moon landings, pronouncing the landings as false.

My God.

Capa's camera above is head.

How can one have good composition shooting like he did.

Not centered. Why do some camera folks think the image must be centered.

The negative space the to right makes this image.

The rife butt is out of frame --- his feet are missing. I seen some of you images. Seems you like feet.

"My God" again. This image was taken in a War Zone in the heat of a battle.

With do respect, I think you do not have any editorial photography experience.

I had nearly 60 years. Now retired. I always have a camera with me to snapped visual moments that excite my brain.

On article Hands-on with the retro Nikon Df (230 comments in total)

I still have my SP 1,F-1, F-4 and F-5 film cameras.

I'm dating myself.

All of them are still above par to all my digital cameras which I purchased. With the exception of Ricoh GRV.

They have a life spam of 5 -6 life years and, the repair cost is grossly costly. Have a Leica digital
camera. How must will it cost you for a repair.
