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 AP cuts ties with Pulitzer-winning photographer article (167 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 Hands-on with the retro Nikon Df article (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.

Just read the specs -- the OVF is tunnel perhaps like my G-11 at 70%.

What about the OVF. Is it a 100% view of the LCD.

In reply to:

leschnyhan: These are great. I spent hours zooming and panning when the London one was published. Now I guess I'll get familiar with Tokyo.

Do it. You will not regret it.

When I first visited Tokyo, Japan in the 1950's en route to Korea. I was overwhelmed by their culture.

On my return to the states I coined a phrase: " Tokyo is to men what Disneyland is to children."

Don't knock if you if you never visited Tokyo.

In reply to:

parallaxproblem: Strange... I alway tried to buy cameras based on portability but this never seemed to be a priority for DPReview until now

The tiny Canon Ixus I with a nice fixed 40mm lens and pretty decent IQ never got a particularly enthusaistic write-up from DPReivew when it was released nearly 10 years ago

For years DPReivew pushed the bigger, bulkier DSLRs from Canon and Nikon over the smaller DSLR models from Pentax - never once mentioning the benefits of smaller bodies and smaller, lighter lenses which the Pentax system offered

The same DPReview then gave (and continues to give) a very unenthusiastic welcome to the compact APS-C sensored NEX range from Sony when it was released...

Now the X100s has got the DPReview editor all excited and we are all supposed to suddenly be buying smaller cameras, though I'm a bit stumped as to why as although the camera has beautifully retro-stying the sample images posted in the recent review are frankly unexceptional

Better late than never, I guess...

You nailed it --- a new leaf is turning,
