Bobthearch: A quote from David Slater: “You could look at it like this: The monkey was my assistant. And therefore I was the artist behind the image and I had my assistant press the button. This needs to be tested in a court of law.”

I guess he got his wish as far as it being tested in court.
Did he seriously think a monkey could legally be employed as an Photography Assistant? I'd like to see the monkey's contract and W-4 form (or Indonesian equivalent).

There are dogs in the army of various countries, with higher rank than me.

sirhawkeye64: I think these are some reasonable ideas for getting out of a photography rut. I mean, lately I've been shooting a lot of models and model shoots, but haven't been doing much landscape (or much in terms of content other than these model shoots) and I'm about at the point where it's becoming more of a chore (shooting and then post processing images ASAP usually within a 1-3 days) whereas at least with landscape or nature, you're not as pressured into getting pictures posted within a day or two (this is just our policy with some of my groups) but I guess the point I'm trying to make is if you are out shooting, but you feel in a rut, try something else, like they suggest here. If you do landscapes, try shooting some models or macro, and vice-versa.

Although, like someone else had said, when I start getting the photography-boredom feeling, it usually means I need to find a new place to photograph (travel, even if it's just a weekend or day trip somewhere).

Macro of a model would be the best.

samfan: Well, people who think this case is really simple, riddle me this:

If I rented a camera from a store, then handed the camera to a person, and they handed it to another person, and they handed it to a monkey who would take a photo, who would own the copyright to the photo?

The store, because it's the owner of the equipment, me, because I legally rented it, or the last person who had the camera in their hands?

'Rent' appears once, others are 'handed.' Hmm....

stevo23: So get out there and...photograph some police!

And, interfere or not, depends on what police feel.

Michael Engelen: Interesting and pretty useless discussion in my eyes. I really do not understand why this is such a big deal in the US. I mean after all it's the land of the free--so people should be free to take pictures of everything they want unless privacy issues are restricting them to do so. OMHO

It became a case in the court simply because the police involved didn't think so.

When I was a high school student, I took train to school. Back to that time, there was a half day class on Saturday so we had a full afternoon to walk on the train track for several kilometers to the next train station.

Of course, we knew every train schedule details and didn't have Beats headphones. We didn't have camera either and step-by step enjoy the beautiful scenery we whooshed through everyday.

On article Shooting with the Canon PowerShot G3 X (322 comments in total)

In the DPR lab test, I compared images from FZ1000 and G3X and found that G3X is much more 'clear' (if not sharp) than FZ1000. Why?

(unknown member): did I read this right " + - shift at normal distances" ????

Yes. According to this DPR article, the lens has a perspective control function although it can be done through PP.

Marty4650: Would you buy a lens from a company that can't get their website to work?

Just sayin'.... this is pretty basic marketing. You issue a press release with a website listed. Then the website doesn't work. This doesn't bode well.

There various types of company website in China. The only possible way to judge the quality of a specific product from China is to take a look and play with it for a while. From the limited pictures shown here, I would say that it seems ok to me for the price.

Is it possible to have a comparison between say a 1200mm shot and a crop of a 400mm shot from a same camera?

abortabort: Hmmm an interesting and funny wrap up :)

It would have been nice if you mentioned that that ridiculous (though 'some' might think 'pretty', like an X30 apparently) perfume bottle selfie camera thing is the first camera ever to have a curved sensor - that makes it one of those 'weird cameras that started it all' and not just for the explosion of dedicated 'female friendly' selfie cameras that are going to hit the market.

There are 1-D curved screen on the market while the screen will not rorate.
