Marty4650: I remember "the magic of $1 a print".... and if you wasted a few shots, the keepers ended up costing you $4 each.

Of course... back in the 1970s a dollar was a lot of money. Not so much today.

Amazon has the paper at $30 for a hundred sheets. Way less than $1. Seriously...this is cheap.

Martian Keyboard: For all street photographers, this is an excellent way to break
the ice with certain subjects.
The Instax or this Polaroid Snap
cam gives your subject a reward for a pose or inconvenience,
or it just helps you make friends.

You can take a shot, then give a print to the subject(s).
- It's being polite.
The doors can open for more shots with your real camera.
The subject is grateful, and you are happy too. So much
fun.

The Snap camera is a good idea, probably borrowed from
Instax success. - The Snap can be a useful photographers tool.

I do the same Samuel. The Instax is a hit at weddings.

On Canon EOS-D30 Review preview (2 comments in total)

And it is Canon's continued lack of improvement that leaves us with where they are today....bottom in sensor tech.

I love film...but what does this have to do with it?

In reply to:

thx1138: The hyperbole over the continuous AF abilities are ridiculous. I seen several so-called amazing sequences posted and even at web size a large % of the shots were clearly not focused yet the posters were waxing lyrical about what you'd consider par for the course for entry level DSLRs. Let's see you track the eye of an eagle swooping down for the kill or a basketball player moving erratically with say at least a 75% keeper rate ie critically sharp at 100% view, not at web size of people simply walking around.

Thx1138 -Links please.

PhotoKhan: It's becoming clear that, if it wasn't for the RAW processing option, this camera would blow everything else out of the water, specs and functionality-wise (...I have some reservations about the actual output as it looks a bit "electronic" to me...but this can also very well be because of users approaches, so...)

Even the RAW issue might be a "non sequitur", since Sony officials already declared that they are aware and on top of it.

If Sony, with is demonstrated attention to users requests, addressees this last issue with a FW for this camera, while already implementing it from the next model onward, other manufacturers should be afraid...Very afraid.

Yep...blows Canon away.

And yet it still blows Canon out of the water

Rick Knepper: This must be killing fanboys all across DPR.

Edit: oh yeah, it is.

The awards arent really killing anyone as this year, as in previous years, they are based upon nothing more than new releases.

mailman88: EISA is more legit than DXO.

That's funny. Awards based upon...nothing. Yup...that sounds credible

In reply to:

rfstudio: Are you guys serious ? just for black and white without anything over $7000 ?? sometimes we all lack of common sense and this is how we got ripped off..Leica has always been a rip off company ...at this day and age where technology is dirt cheap, everything that they sell is over $4000 and people still buy so a small piece of Sh** equipment where you can produce exactly the same thing using nikon or canon or sony pro line DSLR, but I guess most of us dont have common sense

Wow...I rarely see so much stupid compressed into one short post. You truly are clueless.

On Mtl Faked Ilford Delta 3200 2014 DP in the VSCO FILM 02 challenge (5 comments in total)

Being that you didn't use VSCO, this should be disqualified. As well, doesnt look like Delta 3200 at 1000 at all. Contrast is off, grain totally wrong.

(unknown member): You can't capture the Wedding Photog market without a decent flash system. Fuji and Sony both fail hard here I had to rent Nikon to shoot friends' weddings.

I see no problem with Fuji for weddings.

In reply to:

Frank C.: was hoping FF announcement when I saw the Fuji announcement, oh well...

Fuji has already said they are not working on a FF model, but are focussing on APS-C and their lens lineup. Their lenses would not work on FF. Not sure why some people continue to go on and on about FF.

wandiba56: This is the case of money buys praise...what is extraordinary about these shots? Those with lifted shadows look very unnatural!!

I see the Canon fanboys are out trying to attack anything Sony.
