On article Photo prodigy: The images of 17-year-old Taylor Gray (165 comments in total)
In reply to:

MarioV: I checked out the link. Taylor Gray has a lot of very nice landscape photos.

I feel sorry for those with the negative comments. Seems like they are devoid of any humanity. It seems like not even photography gives them pleasure. Sad.

"devoid of humanity" ! Oh you are a sensitive soul. toughen up sunshine, it's a big bold world out there.

Not too much here to inspire a buy. I'll just make do for now.

Joe Ogiba: By the time this comes out a year from now for $1,699 the iPhone 7 and other 4K smartphones will kill it’s demand. Why would anyone want to carry this around when the 4K Sony RX100 IV has a fast F1.8-2.8 24-70mm equivalent Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens and EVF in a pocket size that this camera can’t match at a much lower price. You know this is not using 1" sensors like the RX100.

Another font of pre descriptive knowledge.

On article Behind the Shot: Crystalline (46 comments in total)

I can't take to it, maybe tech wise it's very good. But it leaves me cold, no pun intended.

HowaboutRAW: There will be real world low ISO samples full-sized samples posted for download right? (Ideally with some raws, and some difficult lighting.)

Hey Rawsy, you're a film shooter, you told me so. Whadawant raw files for?

justmeMN: What type of firearm is recommended for shooting them down? :-)

OK, a 'merkin? what's that with one apostrophe? Stupid. Replying to a bed bug, with not enough Ooomph for a capital in it's name. Stupid me! This thread has really got 'em. Like dumb moths to a flame. Edit - And theres a plague of Mozzies to boot! Excellence in photography? if not pest control. Pity the same influence is not readily utilised here with them pesky critters. Now where's the Mortein?

Nah, all good, plenty of heart in good nick too! In fact it's big, healthy and enough ticker not to be hiding. Hows about your own? A bit weak is it? Now about those photos of yours, you do actually take some, or have a camera? Your turn!

I know!! Don't be so serious, you get on out, get some pics in your gallery or muster up some gear - times a ticking on by! or are you just here to be funny?

All is good when the Intelligentsia expound their profound wisdom first up and get it done with.

maxnimo: People still make prints?

Seems kind of outdated and wasteful of resources considering the growing abundance of tablets and 4K TVs with superb image quality and resolution.

When you can produce images that are worthy of print, framing, and subsequent purchase, and that people like to proudly decorate their homes with - and if you are competent enough to make a profit from your endeavours .......

(unknown member): As someone who shoots MFT (which isn't 14 bit) and who did experiments with Nikon's lossy and lossless compression, and as someone who works with theoretical mathematicians every day, I've explored this from the practical to the theoretical. For an event shooter, people shooter, never be noticed. You need the kinds of tonal tests that nature generates - large mildly gradated skies, for example, or Antelope Canyon shots - for it to show up. If you don't print, and only look at images online at online resolutions, you'll probably never see it. But printed (my printer, 16 bit driver), I've seen images that looked like digital camera images in 2001.

Really, I'm not "angry" at Sony - just surprised that a company that has set the standards for many digital formats is compromising here. I do understand the engineering value but it does raise the question of whether engineering is the servant of art, or art is the slave of engineering. (A question I deal with every day.)

I thought you shot film? Now you can show us some digital prowess.

LWW: When I'm out in the wilderness, on location a camera is just that. No one to see the Leica brand, so no ego trip. But the images still work from the lesser devices.

Not interested Rawsy, too busy out with my pathetic gear to make new stuff to print and frame to sell in my more than miserable little gallery to earn a meagre crust. Why are you hiding anyway? Come on out! Show us the Leica Legend behind the silly name.

You are sorry example of a critic, full of excuses when it come to the crunch. I'll leave you to be the non photographer, maybe you have a camera, maybe you don't. You certainly don't have any credentials. Too funny for me as an antagonist.

I'll take your advice when you update your gallery, show some results of your wizardry.

I do care what they have to say, and it's always about the picture, not the process. I you are lucky, one you will one day understand. Some of us don't rest out laurels on exotic glass and indistinguishable lens differentiation. Lens snobbery is expensive but good for the ego. I know, I have Leica friends.

When my customers start asking 'what camera' I'll find something else to do. I feel so elated when those holier than thou, pick on my Pentax, Panasonic M43 devices, because it make me a better photographer using second rate gear to make my living.

On article Shooting with the Canon PowerShot G3 X (322 comments in total)
In reply to:

Samuel Dilworth: On slide 11 the continuous shooting rate in raw is mentioned. Much more important to me is the shot-to-shot time – something that is still often woeful on cameras that aren’t SLRs or smartphones.

Any idea how long this one stalls between shots in raw mode?

I used to accept the updates of the G series cameras, but after too long realised that I had ring in my nose that Canon cheerfully led me by. They add and deduct features with alacrity and sucker us along. Not me anymore, I went to M43 as a preferred suckerer

Could be a bit busy recording a movie clip!
