Re: Who the hell is Zack Arias ?

Guy was trying to do his review in a unique way.  Failed.  But heck those are some impressive pictures he took so I guess the dude knows what he is doing.  I'm very impressed with the X100S.  I want one.

I thought the bar story was funny. Owners of the other brands mentioned might feel differently... Glad to read another great review of the X100s. Makes me want one, even though I  love my X-E1.

Good read

I appreciate his writing style and attitude towards the tools he uses for photography.  His practical take on the camera and it's usability for what he is trying to accomplish is really refreshing. He doesn't ignore the technical prowess of the camera but it's definitely relegated down a few notches in his review.

Well done

Hi,

this is very nice to read. The bar story at the beginning is also a very creativ approach to compare brands from a of course very subjective and personal point of view.

Besides is talking about this and that he also does not forget the technical aspect. So overal it is a really comprehensive look at the camera.

Maybe is one of these very enthusiastic guys who is still able to enjoy something like kid - what is nice and one can always take his opinion with a grain of salt.

Besides that he really is very good photographer. No questions.

So I really enjoy his reviews and in particular his photos.

Nevertheless, I wait for the 1.4 23 - YES I will.

Regards,

Daniel

Tell us how he failed David? What parts did he fail at exactly?

Imo- that was an f'n awesome review. By far the most refreshing & entertaining reviews are coming from Zack. I've yet to read a bad one.
I can see he's not everyone's cup of tea- But i would never put the words 'fail' & 'Zack Arias' in the same sentence. Ever. You'd have to be really pretentious or really square to say he fails at being unique.

For those of you who aren't familiar with him(or are), you should check out his creative mornings lecture, as well as the creative live talks. He has a lot of really inspirational & helpful stuff packed into those talks.

humor and real world photos instead of pixels; Zack is one of  my favorite photographers since a long time

Apology to Zack Arias
12

It appears I badly worded my question on who he was, apology to you all and especially to Zack.

My post was borne out of a sudden increase of seemingly random "User Reviews" and I presumed it was just another of these.

Once again, apologies to all and no offence intended.

Actually it was a parable, a very good one.
