On article Is Instagram 'debasing photography'? (291 comments in total)

It's an interesting discussion, but I don't think this article is particularly well written. Also, her Flickr photostream which apparently is meant to "expand on her points" is laughable.

I'm ambivalent about Instagram. I think what most people dislike about it is not so much the filters, but the modern inclination to upload everything, even what you had for lunch. However, for every 10 people who fill my Facebook news feed with those kind of rather meaningless photos, there's always one person who uses Instagram to actually enhance their already good photo.

Is it really something worth fighting over? Granted in two years time everyone will be onto something else. And whatever that will be I'm equally sure people like Bevan won't like it.

To my eyes the 14mm has no focus distance scale, only a hyperfocal distance scale. Not sure if that matters for the conclusion that the lens will have proper manual focus though.

I fail to see the point.

gogo2: f/3.0 for flagship? Casio is joking right?

Francis, I'm sure you think of a reason or two yourself why that comparison just doesn't fly.

Casio, just give up already. This businessplan is dying.

On article Mirrorless Roundup 2011 (429 comments in total)
In reply to:

rishi o': I felt the article did a good job of simplifying the array of choices we have in mirrorless cameras for those looking to buy one - but the categorization doesn't really work perfectly. Some of these cameras can go in more than one category. The NEX 7 could be considered a hybrid camera. The GH2 could be considered an enthusiast. The Nikon J1 could be considered beginner.

Whatever categorisation one would choose, there'd always be people arguing the opposite.

The Bund isn't in Pudong but in Puxi (Dong is east, Xi is west - the bund is west of the river). Great photo nevertheless : )
