SarahTerra: Right on, sue him good.

Frightening and maddening to me all the millenials who grew up on social media that don't see a problem with using the photo unauthorized.

There used to be a world where your thoughts, privacy and rights were respected and valued.

The programmed youth of our time now give it up without a second thought, in the name of vanity and false hopes of fame. Then whine on facebook about how they are working at starbucks for nothing, and making someone else billions.

Jurassic Period may be?

1) Shoot a lot of pictures of baby relatives, etc
2) Wait and lay low until they get famous (don't bother to apply for copyright of your photo at that time)
3) When they get famous, sue them for copyright infringement
4) Be famous yourself by having your name printed all over digital media
5) Goto 1

1) Why should I not instead buy a used, established, brand name film camera for a mere fraction of the price?

2) Do you also provide development labs, or at least sell development kits, accessories, etc where I live(Not everyone lives in Costcoland)? Don't think so.

So until you answer these two questions, nope.

whawha: The easiest and by far best solution for this and so many other headaches is to not get married. It just works!

I will see you married with 3 kids in as many years. Just remember told you so.

The elephant feet would be my favourite shot...striking, bold, disturbing, with an impact...IF it wasn't molested in PP with over-used effects and turned into a cartoon.

Aliasing occurs because the sampling frequency is less than twice the motion frequency(Nyquist freq.), so the bird appears to be floating in the air. Oh these are the times that eases the pain of wasting life studying DSP.

princewolf: Will a single dime go to the monkey who shot the photo by way of PETA's lawsuit?
NO.

Who paid for the trip to Indonesia, the camera, the lens, equipment? Who had the novel idea of handing the camera out to the macaque? David Slater. And now he's penniless for all his efforts. Reminds me of Farnsworth vs RCA.

Rdfen, I meant the way it should be, not the legal way, whatever it is. This is a clear instance of what is legal is not always what is right. In fact, bullying and cheating is how most big companies get their copyrights.

This story to me represents everything that is wrong and corrupted about photography today.

For those unable to buy the 3-lens set :)

Alternative title "Why don't you buy an M6 with EF-M 22mm already?" Are they overstocked by any chance? :)

On article Alpha-better: Sony a9 versus a7R II (506 comments in total)

I think

"it's much faster than the a7R II, with a more sophisticated AF system, but it can't match the older camera for sheer resolution."

Sums it all up pretty nicely.

This article hepls me get an idea about most commonly used focal lengths. Rest is pretty much useless for me :)

tkbslc: I can't see any adults wanting lenses with these colors.

Unfortunately, "adults" in the sense of the word you used, make up a very little portion of the consumers.

Fictional Story below:

2025 Newsflash "Olympus just announced it has abondoned the u4/3 system for the more versatile nano-4/3 system. The new system promises more compact lenses in an affordable price. Executives swore there will never be a pico-4/3 system. By the way, experts wonder how the new nano-4/3 will fare against medium format cameras currently in the 100MP range , offered in similar size and price specs comparable to an APS-C camera 10 years ago. "

I will always frown upon users who prefer smartphones over proper cameras...just like other older folk frowning upon me for using digital :)))

On article Lily Robotics sued over claims of false advertising (139 comments in total)

1) Lucky US backers where laws do protect the consumer. For those of us in other countries, no such luck... It's inspiring that a judge took a stand against those who say "your money is as good as gone in crowdfunding, just get over it." Start-ups are responsible for what they fail to deliver, ad should be held accountable.
2) Refund of exact amount is misleading. The company undoubtedly made a lot of money by putting the funders' money to banks or other investments, profits that could be had by the backers if they had kept their money. Refunds must include a decent interest.

A true photography-related article on DPR! The end must be near... :) Is it though?
