fujishooter: What about LX100? Please Panasonic do it for the LX100 also
I hope you're right as i would like that features on my LX100
Needs a touchscreen.
The camera must have a touchscreen for this feature.
Well done George. Beautiful image. Congrats!!
Skylane: 197 entries is ridiculous which discourages reasonable and effective voting. I gave all entries a 5 and encourage everyone to vote the same.
I agree. Next time you make up a challenge, set the limits a lot lower. It takes up a lot of individuals time, especially when there are other challenges for them to consider. Believe me, I love pictures of roses, but if I have to go through 197 images trying to determine how I'm going to vote, I will go out of my mind, and I will never want to see another image of a rose again for quite a long time.
t.c. marino: again,no disrespect to leica and their fan base..but after seeing these samples..I'M NOT IMPRESSED,my recently purchased nikon d750 absolutely destroys this very expensive leica and way overpriced kit zoom lens..damm.for those on a budget the very affordable nikon d610 and short nikkor primes is a killer combo that will wipe the floor with this leica in the iq department..and dont forget canon's equally affordable and outstanding 6d...dont even try to compare this leica to the canon 5ds/r nikon 810 or the new 42mp sony.
Yes, and not to mention my Olympus EM5. The images from this Leica is subpar compared to many much less expensive cameras. This camera could only appeal to die hard Leica fans who are out for show and no go!
Edit: I just did DPR's studio scene comparison, and my Olympus EM5 definitely blows this thing out of the water. Unbelievably poor quality for the money they are charging. It certainly doesn't do anything for Leica's image other than tarnish it.
Sure these cameras are better than the run of the mill ones that most people can afford. After all, the rich in our society have to have things that visually separates them from the rest. All the power to them I say.
Personally, I don't like the appearance of the camera at all. It looks like it was manufactured by the Mattel toy factory. JMHO, after all, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
Looking at the images taken with this camera, they don't look any better than those taken with the Olympus EM5 that I own. It seems like a whole lot of money wasted, when one can have an equally good camera, IQ wise, for a fraction of the cost. Its the perfect camera for those that want to walk around - "look at me, I have a Leica". Nothing more than bragging rights. :-)
Very nice. Well Done!!
Robert Evagelista: LOL.....I just Changed the maximum Entry to 100..
We all figured that it was a simple oversight. :-)
It's turning into an interesting challenge. Excellent subject.
Just one entry. Are you serious? This isn't a challenge. You can't have a competition of one against one.
It's a good challenge, but please rethink the number of entries.
I love shots of cyclists, and I have to say that this is by far the best shot I have seen. Better than anything in the hundreds of cycling mags I have.
Brilliant job David!
A superb image in every way. Well done.
My thanks to all who entered my challenge.
A spectacular photo. A well disserved win. Congratulations!!
Beautiful entries. I very much appreciate the support with my challenge. Well done all, and congrats to Phil for the winning entry. You did well as the second place winner was in the lead almost to the end.
DavidAMWA: Just curious why my image of the steps inside the Sydney Opera House was rejected?
Hello David. I DQ'd your image because of the presence of people. You should have got a message to that affect.
Since there are a few days left for submissions and the response has been quit good, I thought I would expand on the max allowable entries.
JimW-203: A clarification, please:When you state "image of both indoor and outdoor stairs," do you mean any given entry/frame must contain parts of both indoor and outdoor stairs in the same entry/frame, or an indoor in one and an outdoor in the second entry? Could both entries contain either an indoor or an outdoor stairway?
Either way is fine. Your image can either be indoor or outdoor, or indoor/outdoor combined.
I hope that clarifies it for you.
BenFel: I really enjoyed this project, but I was wondering that if you happen to do a second edition of this challenge, if you could open it to stairs outside as well as inside because there are some beautiful outdoor stairs as well as inside that are not being given a chance to be seen.
Hen3ry: Too popular! I missed getting my entry in! :)
A suggestion. I don't mind increasing the limit a bit if you could shoot me off a message. I don't mind accommodating some.
