How is it possible that cameras are still built to deform our face ?
'... I've taken more pictures today than I have the past 5 days thanks to this...'
A foreign body in his eye ...?
The Google translation of the text below ;-)
A good example for modern cinema. Great idea - the picture quality is not important. Thank you.
Very nice !What kind of soft-focus filter did you use for this picture ?
Brilliant found, that light fall and shadow !
KL Matt: A 2MP full-frame DSLR - now that would be a popular camera.
You're right, not for pixel-counting amateurs, but for the medium format using professional who used to shoot with Tri-X Pan in the past.
I thought this is the 2012 winner ?There is a bit of confusion in the media, some say 2012 others 2013.
It was always a quote, that it's not the camera but the artist who takes and makes the picture.
The picture is nice, however if you Google on strawberry & lips you find thousands similar of this one.
Lytro missed the opportunity to radical change the camera ergonomics as well.For decades we have peered with one eye through pinholes, while folding and crushing our nose. Pity they choose for this rectangular block.
' Photography is an art, so there are no rules. '
For unknown reasons (to me) this picture, made by me with the Sony 18-70 mm kit-lens was disqualified from the 'kit-lens challenge' ?A dpreview email told me ' the Sony 18-70 was excluded from the challenge '.
Very nice picture, but I don't understand the title...?
peevee1: "but people who really like to work with medium format don't ask me that. Because they know medium format is about more than just resolution. There are still a lot of photographers who work with 22 and 31MP digital backs, and they are fine with the resolution, and they would never change to a 35mm [format] because the image characteristics are completely different. People who ask about cameras like the D800 have never experienced medium format. "
Blah-blah-blah. Defensive much? ;)
You're right. In the analog days medium vs 35mm wasn't about grain size at all! It was about lenses, optical resolution, plasticity, depth of field, focal length and mainly fine -sometimes hardly visible- details. And fine details -just as in producing music- even if they don't strike, they will contribute to realism in the end.
Calm down. The Photokina is a consumers market and they exhibit Boyz-Toyz meant to sell by the millions. Making a picture only takes 1/1000 of a second on any camera, creating a picture is an art and takes hours and mainly talent. The type of camera only plays a minor role.A real photographer doesn't care about the looks, that is only eye candy and fun for the masses.
I'm waiting for the photographer who will state that his new camera is responsible for his prize winning picture.
Daylight, reflection screen, Sony A200 with Sony 55-200 lens, B+W Soft-Pro filter.1/8 sec, f11, ISO 200, 75 mm, tripod, manual focus.Minor retouche.Aug. 4, 2012
Is anyone really making better (winning/selling) pictures with this camera ?Just boyz-toyz...:-)
I'm waiting until a camera has a laser-pointer, a luggage weigher and a makeup mirror in it :-) Oops, almost forgot a tire pressure gauger...
That pixel resolution is a strong argument, that pixel-counting is for the consumers market.In the analogue era no professional photographer was worrying about Tri-X or Panatomic-X grain.I never encounter pixel limits in digital pictures, just optical limits.
