Round Earth conspiracy theorists: focal plane shutters are flat... mic drop.

In reply to:

harry: I think for some time people are uncustomed to the use of flash in public space, unless one looks like a professional. The improvement in IQ in low light situations from most mirrorless and DSLRs has really render the use of a flash unnecessary.

You didn't read the article, or don't understand how light works to suggest that (improvements in ISO) mirrorless renders flash unnecessary.

Okay, which one of you took to the IST? 'Fess up, that first one - of Mother Earth - is cracking.

Are you saying that it's a fake photo? It's a damn realistic sketch or painting if so.

pumrel: How old are they? Just out of curiosity.

Old enough to do what they do; young enough to embarrass the hell out of me.

wb2trf: These photos have no soul.

@MiseReality:

Isn't it the devil that captures the soul?

GodSpeaks: Terrible video and totally unimpressed. Way too long and far too much meaningless chatter.

Not too impressed with the final images too.

But what do you think of the comments here, that's what everyone stirs the pot for.

skanter: Top notch? Absolutely terrible video and portraits were even worse. Where do they dig these people up?

If joey learned photography at DP challenge, he bloody well mastered it. What a talent.

Shiranai: For top notch photographers AKA bunch of hipsters they dug out of Instagram and handed them top notch cameras, which still don't give them the ability to archieve something more outstanding than the average photo we see times 100 every day on every Facebook photography group.

@shiranai: your nickname was a good choice.

Sezano: These kids are a cute group but too young to matter.

What am I reading here? Joey can have my baby as far as I'm concerned.

Dante Birchen: The warehouses are closed environments out of sight of the customer. B&H found that Hispanics males would work cheap and created a warehouse class employee. All Hispanic so they would understand each other, all low paid, no perspective. You never move from warehouse to store front. Next step will be to outsource warehousing so B&H doesn't have to bother with employee rights any more and can just sign a performance agreement with a warehousing company. There is always a race to to bottom where working conditions are concerned. It's the lowest paid workers that pay for a companies cost effectiveness in order to be able to compete in the market place. With their lives.

So, workers died on the job at B&H?

fullstop: A Chinese made clone would be cheaper and just as good but unfortunately stigma is attached to Chineses cloned lenses.

And do you see me praising Huwei? China has been an industrial powerhouse long enough to make and design a majority of things. Why it still relies on rips is beyond me.

Exactly. Make your own stuff with pride. Don't clone like a coward.

This company are tearing things up. I'll wait out this year, and after trying their 600 series, may look at replacing my Profoto setup.

DVT80111: just Photoshop it, much cheaper

Pray, tell us the exact method to photoshop that look onto an image and make it worth anyone's while.

Lichtbild: 'The lens is available ...', with a just launched Kickstarter campaign, it's probably more accurate to say, 'the lens is planned to be available ...'. Even if some mount version is actually available, other crowd-funding experiences tell us, other mount versions often take quite a while before being available. If ever.

Great that they're making a real M-mount version rather than a de-coupled and cheesy bajonett for mirrorless cameras.

In reply to:

Tardyvar: Wow, M42 mount..

T mount was the universal. M42 is a great old mount, but so much more a bugger than bajonett mounts.

Bambi24: is this a parody video? tell me this is a parody video please

what a convoluted mess of reflectors and light boxes for a shampoo bottle, hopefully he doesn't get paid by the hour

imagine if he was asked to shoot another product in the same exact lighting after having moved all his stuff around 20 times

small products shots like that are supposed to be done in a static light tent and shouldn't take longer than 2 minutes

Not even mass produced catalogue stuff would be shot in a light tent unless there is no budget and no photographer. eBay and that's it.
