Rupert Bottomsworth: I predict these glasses will be a flop.

There are lots of idiots who will buy this idiotic product to not only document the minutiae of their idiotic lives, but to also share all this tedium with other idiots.

Luckily, thieves don't read gear-related news online. ;-)

Boris: If I hire a artist to paint a portrait for me what copyright rights does this artist have?

Search for the term "work for hire." If you do a job that is explicitely "work for hire" (<-- this exact wording), then the client owns the copyright of the photos.

I always clearly state that, while I take on assignments, I do not do "work for hire."

Rod McD: IMO, the concept that photographers create an image all by themselves is a bit of a problem. It understates what is in reality a more complex situation. If a work is commissioned, a photographer doesn't own and didn't create the image subject. If that belongs to someone else, or is a person, then giving copyright to the photographer may hold some potential problems.

What rights do you have as an inventor or manufacturer if you've commissioned photography of a new product that is in-confidence? What rights do you have if a photographer takes pictures of you or your child, even with permission? It's a general legal principle that you can't contract your way around a legislated right. So what limits exist in the new law around how a photographer can exercise their copyright?
Even as a photographer, I can't see that this is the right outcome all of the time. Photographers should not be without rights, but neither should photographers have all the rights.

The copyright holder holds the copyright to his creation (the image). The image content (people property, brand names) may preclude commercial (or libelous) use of the image. To use an image commercially (for profit), the photog needs a signed model release from people that are clearly recognizable. In the case of images of property it depends: shot from a public area, an image of private property may of may not require a peoperty release, depending on several circumstances and factors. For example, in order to use a photograph of the Golden Gate Bridge commercially, the photog has to get a release from from the city of SF, because the Golden Gate Bridge has been copyrighted.

In the US, the photographer owns the copyright, unless the job was expressly done as "work for hire." I never do "work for hire," because the client will own the copyright.

Even though I have the copyright to all my images, it does not mean I can use my photos commercially without required permissions (model and property releases). How I can use my images is however a seperate issue from me having the copyright.

On photo Solitude in the Mountaineering challenge (4 comments in total)

Meteora? Isn't that where the monastary scenes in 'For Your Eyes Only' were filmed back in '80?

Very nice shot. Love the light, compositon, and tonal range.

Well, with a preview I see my typos. With WYSIWYG I don't. I suppose, WYSIWYG is not the same as WISISWIG! :-p

TheEye: At that price, this lens should be one stop faster.

iudex, my point was in regard to PRICE. I have two 35-105 f/2.8 Tamron 35 mm lenses, which cost a more reasonable $600 about 17 years ago.

And yes, there is a 35-100 f/2.0 Zuiko. :-)

Ann Chaikin: What is the point of rating users? Is it a contest? I can see filtering out those who just want to be trolls but other than that... why?

User ratings implementation will make the most competitive post whores go on sprees.

On article Photokina 2012: Interview - Sun Hong Lim of Samsung (99 comments in total)

"You cannot leave the house without a smartphone today."

I feel sorry for him if he feels that way. I don't carry a cellphone. The idea of being connected 24/7 is unappealing to me.

Some people think they'll leave the house without of a phone, only to die because of a flat tire. :-P

In reply to:

pixelcollector: where is the flippin' E-P4/5 ?
this is not cutting it. cheap looking design, subpar lcd res.

One of the Oly guys said something about something revolutionary regarding one or the other upcoming Pen (finder?). Well, "maybe, maybe not."

Maybe the revolution is the relative low-res display, which due to some trickery, looks twice as good as it should.
