HowaboutRAW: Ah yes, "disorderly conduct" redefined to mean "not doing whatever a cop says", glad that garbage criminal prosecution was dropped.

Now the civil fine will just anger authoritarian cops/types even more.

Not really.
You, as a tax payer, will be the one paying the settlement.
Using citizen/taxpayers money to pay misconduct settlements to the taxpayer/citizens that they abuse must the most brilliant racket ever devised.
Until you, American citizens, change things so that the money comes out of the abuser's pocket you'll be forever caught in the brutality trap.

Steve Balcombe: If you believe in karma, that's justice for all the migrating birds they shoot.

Correct, FE.
Karma, something that does not exist, does not work in the described reflex way.
It is extremely dangerous not knowing how it actually works,...although and again, it is nonexistant.

I believe in Karma.
I think it was the ocean.

graybalanced: As usual many are saying this proves iPhones are "overpriced." That is not proven by the data.

All it proves is that the iPhone is set to a price that the market will bear. That's how markets work. If the iPhone was overpriced, it would not be as profitable or not profitable at all. People have many, many less expensive phone choices. No one forces them to buy an iPhone. That many choose an iPhone means they freely decided the iPhone contains value that justifies the price.

In fact, because of the sheer margin of profit, on a free market basis some could argue that the iPhone might be underpriced.

No, I don't even own an iPhone 7 or 6. My free market choice was to choose a less expensive phone.

...The obviously inflated share of the overall profits (...that simply can not match the market share on record even by simple common sense, let alone mathematics...) is just something that a "market spinning" company (...Google "Strategy Analytics", to immediately perceive who they are...) has "mined" in order to plant it on a collaborative Korean media outfit so that the "word" can then spread to innocent propagating sites like this one, providing titles that miraculously convert a weakness (the market share) into something "positive" (the putative share of the overall profits).

Communicational shoddy tactics like this one, tactics that keep the media hypnotized and domesticated about what the Big Apple Master supposedly is, is where they truly shine.

That no one is forced to buy an iPhone is aptly demonstrated by the market share.

Another home run, Barney!

I can't tell what I appreciated more, the almost-pie-smelling humanity while, still, extremly informative content on this feature or the sheer brilliancy of bagging a chocolate cake + an awesome plane ride + a scrumptious apple pie under the pretext "oh, you know, I HAD to test the camera"

Suggestion for the M6?...À Milwaukee brewery followed by a local strip joint :)

Seriously, you couldn't have a biggest fan of these "environment reportages" for camera tests. Thank you for doing them.

Maybe Nikon?

tkbslc,
Shouldn't you be on Facebook or Twitter?

BobT3218: Holy sh*t! In a decade or so we may be offering our cameras to museums. The one saving grace is that almost all pics taken with phones will end up lost in the cloud or on a chip in landfill somewhere.

Yes, because Apple and Google are going to keep them forever...right...

On article Nine tips to help you win at photography competitions (100 comments in total)
In reply to:

PhotoKhan: The simple fact that this article title exists is definite proof on why competitions can be almost as pernicious to Photography as "workshops".

Just go and shoot using your eyes, brain and heart.

If the correct balance is attained, accolades will find you, rather than the other way around.

To make things clear: I was referencing "style" workshops, not technical ones.

Inaccurately displaying a color due to a technical handicap with it then be kind of perceived by users minds playing tricks on them.

...Ah, the true Foveon dream...

PhotoKhan: DPR, you really should refrain your understandable (...and even somewhat commendable, because it is an assurance of overall quality...) "photo-geekiness" and stop playing the game of manufacturers that announce products months and months and months, - sometimes, over an year - in advance and then try to cover the delays-to-market with selected appearances. You should adopt a policy of simply "copy&paste" announcements and then only cover photographic gear when it is actually on the market (in the sense of launched or just about to be launched in a couple of weeks). As it stands, you're just working for free for "clever" marketing departments.

The ones that made you master-censor, perhaps?

Here's an idea for Yamaki-san: ALL your customers require exceptional lens performance and you should provide it to those who are willing to pay the price. Furthermore, the lower that price is the more and more satisfied customers you will have.

I wouldn't want to be the guy that has to turn on all 1000 of them in 10 minutes so they can be 15 in the sky. :)

On article Leica SL Review (1089 comments in total)
In reply to:

marike6: Review is much too short for a Leica camera, and the snarky "Conclusion" section, the bit about "if you have your heart set on a camera with a red dot on it" is kind of obnoxious.

No, it's not the "Conclusion" that is obnoxious. It's the brand.

Link | Posted on Feb 22, 2017 at 23:27 UTC

I know a brand that will benefit from this.

On article Leica Summilux-SL 50mm F1.4 sample gallery (368 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sannaborjeson: Why shooting such nonsense? Can't you afford a professional photographer or just a keen hobbyist to make nicer and more meaningful sample shots?

Such a crappy gallery is a waste of shutter clicks, you're showcasing nothing.

Not really Carey...They are just utterly confused. ;)

Having to fork out thousands of dollars by the dozen for so-so tech tends to stress already insecure people to the highest levels.

The photos are just fine. They perfectly serve the purpose of the review and are actually quite engaging all by themselves.

jesus_freak: This is better than the D5 and 1DXII galleries, well done!

No, it is not.
