TheDarmok74: And this - unchecked - story makes it to dpr why? Is it a blog on mobile phones? The iPhone has a camera, but how does this come into play in this case?

today, mobile phones + cameras are deemed the same for most users as their only means of capturing moments. iphone being a central piece in mobile camera innovation and standard, plenty of owners would like to know how safe it is to bring that phone around for photography in water-risky places.

BRPWS: I am sorry to hear this even though I no longer live in New York and never went to their store.

Vsco makes some great products for Adobe products. If they want to grow their business and this is just my opinion which by the way I shared with them, they need to start making their products with other software platforms like MacPhun Luminar, Iridient Developer, On1 Photo Raw, Affiinity and maybe some others.

Right now they are a one trick company who has put all their eggs in the Adobe basket and while Adobe is gigantic, others out there are growing and deserve the quality VSCO can provide them and their consumers.

ever heard of the 80:20 rule. that is not the problem, betting on adobe is good. what they should pursue is focusing more on it, if they are able to get adobe to offer as part of its cloud subscription and marketed by Adobe, they are done for.

magneto shot: i visited the KLPA (kuala lumpur photographic award) last year and i was appalled by how low quality the winners images are. I realized this has become a norm in some top level contests, the winners are selling stories, the images in terms of lighting, composition, subject and idea are mostly snapshots quality.
I suggest competitions should rename the contest to "Story telling awards" rather than "Photography awards"

Sean65 and ur understanding of photography is so enlightened cause u were there during its historic existence and dictating its current state.

Ssscomp2: I signed up for their Italy trip about two years ago and it was absolutely amazing. Both Elia and Naomi are great people who get out at god-awful hours to check out sunrises at various locations for us to shoot. The restaurants were fabulous, their tips were tremendous ("if you move about 4 feet to the right then the top of that Church will just touch the orb of the setting sun", etc) and it was the little tips that made the real difference. The people on the trip were great and we all had a great time and a lot of wine. An amazing photography experience if you get the opportunity. Not cheap but worth every penny. We had a guide who helped with translations but it was definitely the Locardis who determined where and when we would shoot. And we never shot any person without permission, mostly landscapes.

jonny1976, u undervalue education and its impact on one's photographic growth. The problem is spending more money on gears gains u nothing really, except being a gear head or pixel peeper, but spending them on workshops or trips like these, u get to learn a lot and meet new ppl at the same time.
if we get this priority right, we wont be spending on new gears and you would appreciate paying for knowledge.

we are talking about a photography contest here. last check, photography is about taking images. if you want stories, go read a book where photos can add as supplementary, not primary context.

bakhtyar kurdi: attention behind such judgement is forcing photographers to think stupid and kill there talents, as choosing an ugly girl as miss where and where, how many of you see misswhere ugly but you are afraid to say it loudly? and think with yourself (there is something wrong with me) , so we all get sick and wait someone to decide for us who is beautiful who is ugly, which nation are evil and has oil or poppy, it is just some brainwashing exercise .
with respect to the cute girl in the picture and the photographer also that probably has no role in what happened.

google translated?

The Davinator: Hilarious all the film haters spouting off about how their digital gear is "better." They seem to miss the point of why we use film....the different look. The comments are as nonsensical as someone talking about higher resolution of better noise from watercolor vs oils.

@irakly whoa, i can see u really tried making that 6mp work. thanks for sharing.

irakly, perhaps u can show one such photo developed using lightroom. Its amazing that the adobe guys considered and have contax's raw files support even after it flipped. 6 mp reminded me of the beautiful nikon CCD d50...ah...wished leica had sticked to ccd.

in the early days it wasnt a smart idea to invest on digital. imho if we cant tell the diff between 35mm scans vs a digital, the digital is really bad, regardless of whatever shenanigans available back then. films hasnt changed much since, except for better scanners, but digital has gone really far now. the distinction between the tones and feel is very obvious between these two mediums.
u can see "grains" added to even the latest lightroom and VSCO selling tons of their presets simply because many envy the looks of film and wanted it back.

In reply to:

tecnoworld: Interesting concept. Many sensors vs big single sensor will be similar to multi core at lower clock vs single core at higher clock. One day we'll have small devices making decent pictures. But not now.

nope. its more like many small mirrors vs looking at one big beautiful mirror.

In reply to:

ottonis: I was quite disappointed that a dual camera setup combining the images from two sensors would end up inferior to the best current single sensor solutions.
While they gain one full stop of SNR by combining two images... they give up 1/2 to 2/3 stops of light gathering by choosing a relatively slow lens by today's standards (f/2.2 vs f/1.7 in the S7).
I mean, the idea of multiple sensors is great but in this case it got apparently executed quite badly. Wasted resources.

iphone 7+ uses a horrible f2.8 aperture for its telephoto lens. if it was like 1.4 or 2.0 like its other one, it would be so much better.

"“Our team of 60 seasoned technology professionals and enthusiasts researched, designed and created a flying camera that exceeds all current standards,” said Edoardo Stroppiana, co-founder of AirSelfie. “

Each one getting paid 500 for 3 months of work and hope the raw materials and manufacturing cost will be just usd 20, cause we need to deliver to 1000 ppl.
