JoKr: I am coming from an agency, to make review: An accident can happen every day. Even if you try to take care and be aware. I was a cofounder of ‘Deutscher Fotobuchpreis’ (award of photo books in published in the German) in die early 2000. We were in contact with Steidl Verlag and we sensed Seidel Verlag as a very reliable partner. As an editor full of ideas, innovative topics, artists and with a sense for creative minds.

I am not talking against any photographer and I am also not a layer of Steidl. But I have a wish: No polarisation and please see the other side. Sure some years are too long, but: Fair play discuss instead of judge. My opinion about the court’s decision is different. A portfolio is missing: the prints went gone. So this should be compensated if not found. How a sum of 65 kEUR for material appears, maybe somebody can make me plausible.

In the end? This case can be taken to the terms and conditions of our insurances to keep an ambitious business going.

@PLShutterbug: The thing is, I am fluent in German

@Lusis100 I’ll give you a pass on this one due to an apparent lack of reading comprehension.

Are you judging _his_ art?
I looked at your site, and I am very surprised about your comment.
There is lot's of stuff that shows that you actually know what you are talking about. (meant as compliment in case you missed it). At the same time I know plenty of people who would slaughter you for the excessive amount of PP you did to your landscapes... But again, who would I be to judge _your_ art?

I'd suggest you show some respect. You may want the same for your work.
While you could debate some technicalities in his "THE ART OF READING" series, you have to give him that he captured some hilarious situations!
You may be less into reading than I am, and thus not appreciate this series at all, but he is telling a story (for me), and put some serious effort into creating this collection.

Not sure what your point is. Sounds like justice is to me! Their arrogant „death penalty“ statement is just adding insult to the injury. Well deserved.

BTW: I have challenges to comprehend your post.

This is the stealth edition to make the red dot less obvious.

Roland Karlsson: I have no problems with this whatsoever. If they make red cameras and can or cannot sell red cameras is their problem. If someone buys a red camera just because they have lots of money and collect Leica collectibles. Who cares?

As long as they stay away from Swarovsky crystals or partly covers it in rare wood. Both are so ugly.

Just imagine having a Swarovski edition of their lenses!
While Swarovski is known for decent optics, I still wonder how the fanboys would react ;-)

The Nikon D7500 link still leads to the Fuji. Kind of a funny glitch..

No brain needs no protection. Very adolescent behavior to think this was cool...

Leica is becoming a morgue.
What else could they resurrect?
Vintage rolls of unprocessed film?

Apart from this chatbot being a disease rather than a feature, the abuse of the term AI in computer science is disturbing.

Deciding on output to be generated based on probability by feeding data into a model is machine learning. AI is something quite different.

Anyway, just add machine learning, AI and cloud into your marketing pith, and you are trending immediately...

ChickenBalls: "That said, we're aware that a great many people primarily shoot JPEG."

Really?? people buy DSLRs just to shoot JPEG? Why not save some money and get a good smartphone instead?

The comparison makes it pretty clear that shooting jpeg means missing out on the potential of the sensor. Don't get it either why one would limit the potential, other than for special occasions such as "real time" reporting from a sports event.
I think you are overdoing it with the smartphone cam comment though ;-)
@tkbslc you sound as openminded as the smartphone comment ...

Stupid dedicated Dell advert to draw traffic to the site. To make sure it's reaching more dummies it's made as a video, so reading comprehension is not required.
They could have written an article on how bad the dongle hell is Apple is forcing it's user base into it, and I would have fully subscribed.

Sangster: This is why Nikon stated they need to focus on high-margin products. They need to leave plenty of room to pay for all the subsequent recalls.

@mandm I guess you are in denial of all the other copy paste posts you did here...
All others: just search for all mandm posts in this thread to know what I'm talking about

@mandm how many more times will you paste the same pathetic response?
Bashing Canon will not solve any Nikon QA issues!

Very nice gallery! Shows well what you can do with one single focal length.

Excellent images! Looks like a great lens. I already like the EF-M 35 Macro a lot, but this one looks even better.

On article How do you know you need a new camera? (410 comments in total)

I really enjoyed that article, though I'm a bit disappointed with the missing happy end!
Did you buy a new camera now? Or did you switch your entire system?
You made me very curious what you are going to end up doing.

The Name is Bond: Unless you have cashflow problems, rapid depreciation for many systems means there's no point not buying the latest and greatest, and selling off yesterday's model. You'll still end up spending the same amount of money, but miss out on a)the latest and greatest b)warranty.

People buy for logical reasons but based on emotions.
If you want that new gear you will find a calculation that works for you.
Can you please show me that formula where buying the latest stuff is actually saving you money? Let's take the Canon 5D (II, III, IV) line for that.

btw.: I found a perfect reason why I could not live without that 2nd time zone of my GMT Master, because I was traveling between the time zones ;-)

How does uploading an image to a web service proof ownership? It just shows that you uploaded it first, but provides no evidence that you created it.
