Phil Askey: Yep.. remember it well ;)

Wow Phil!

Can't believe you're still checking things out!

I've been here almost 17 years now.

Thanks again for starting this great website!

h2k: Now expecting an interview, i didn't expect in the least this awkward multi-click format. I find this user-unfriendly to a high degree (aware that many on-site clicks may be good for DPR).

I thought this could be interesting content, but i can't bring myself to click-click-click through this.

I know at least one great website of a major general weekly that breaks its stories into 2 - 3 pages - with the additional option of reading everything on one single page. Possible at DPR?

I'm not a fan of the clickety click, click click click, either.

But I've already raised the ire of Mr Britton.....

So I don't want to sound like I'm complaining.....

I'd really like to read the same interview with respect to NPS if it becomes available.

(Even if I have to click click click).

It was nice to see the behind the scenes with CPS in Rio.

So Barney,

@Lars V

"make some money..."
This site is owned by one of the richest companies in the world.

"I see no reason to complain....."
Then why did you?

Thanks for the blast to the past DPR!

So now instead of shooting film we'll shoot our oldest functioning digital camera?

Haha.

Sounds a little like the adapted lens forum.

I have a Minolta Dimage 7 that still works.

So what's your oldest working digital camera?

Well, when you shoot RAW it's not exactly like it's something special to get every single frame.

Every single RAW frame on my BMPC is a cinema dng RAW file. (And it has global shutter and decent DR). But it's only about 9mp.

I wouldn't be surprised if in 5 years Blackmagic isn't making something closer to 8k with similar specs.

(And Red has been pulling decent res stills from their cameras for a couple of years it's just that now the mp count is pretty nice)

DPR should poll US for OUR 10 favorite products from the last decade!

And to think I'm still using the last one on their list.
Some spots on the sensor.
Gotta clean it.
I digress..

Are they working on a model that takes a picture of bystanders response when you pass gas as well?

On article Bentley creates a 53 billion pixel car commercial (189 comments in total)
In reply to:

marcio_napoli: If I were Simon Stock, and saw basically 99,9% of this board trashing an extremely high end assignment shot for Bentley, I'd sign in and ask everyone here to do any better. Would even give a deadline: 1 month, and sit back waiting for what you guys would actually produce.

But since I'm not Simon, I can't speak on his behalf.

All I can say is that it's super, super easy to criticize other's work sitting behind a keyboard.

Sorry for the harsh words, but what I'm saying is that if one doesn't know any better and stops by this comments page, one would believe this is the most talented photography board on the planet.

99% of the commenters here act like they could actually deliver a better image to Bentley!

@marcio_Napoli
I have to concede.
I don't think I could do stupid any better.

On article Accusations fly over Fukushima photos (88 comments in total)

I once ran across something about one of Ansel Adam images the moon over something having come about because fixer was shot. The image changed later. Hence the inspiration to do it differently. Not as questionable as this. So I agree with the question do you dislike the images if they're questionable. I'd like to see the study of knowing the questionability before or after seeing the images, what people's responses would be. That is a question for a psych phd candidate to explore. Hahaha. (But I do have a bit of an answer).

justinwonnacott: The woman with the snake has to be on of the sleaziest, cheesiest promo pix for a major brand I have seen in a long time. Takes me back to the pages of Modern Photography in the 1970's or worse.

MrTaikitso: This is easily the most ground breaking innovation in photography since the invention of the camera, more so than Lytro. Although I imagine Light could do Lytro. I have always wished it would become technologically possible to develop a pocket camera with the resolving power of a large sensor DSLR. This is it. And it works like nature, using a compound 'eye'.
