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?

Frank C.: All that's missing is a "PRESS HERE" sticker with arrow next to the shutter release and this camera is ready to go!

And the "TURN CAMERA ON HERE" sticker for the power button, don't forget that one.

ChroMagnon: I am going to play devilś advocate here, even though I would never have this thing. The Relonch website indicates who the audience is (hint: itś not us, DPR readers). The key traits are: think the SLR is complicated, don´t like to edit photos, have a ton of photos they never review, don´t like the look of a trad camera, don´t think cell phone photos look good. (The CEO calls a DSLR a ¨20-button plastic monster¨! LOL!) So the audience is people who want high IQ but don´t want to do what it takes to get nice images. They probably have market research (shared with their venture capitalists) to this effect. I definitely know a lot of people like that and Iḿ sure you do, too. Relonchś answer (promise) for this audience is to sell the photos, not the camera: to edit, retouch and deliver photos that look great without the user having to do anything. For that audience (not us), that service may be useful. BTW, the fee is $99 to reserve and $1/photo to use, not $99/mo.

I will edit photos when I get back from the trip in my own time for free, thanks. That I can afford a Safari doesn't mean I'm willing to put $1000 to flames.

With the number of photos taken by the average user(>>99 per moth), $1per photo is still too steep. Returning from a Safari can easily cost you $1000 with this pricing.

It's quite ridiculous to anyone who knows what shutter speed is, but not commercially unreasonable, as there are A LOT of people who have more money than brains.

I'm sure they were mentioned before, but here are a few downsides:

-If camera capture is not good, there is only so much you can do to correct it in PP.
-If you wish to correct them yourself, why not download a free PP software?
-Are you really crazy about sharig your intimate family photos with a server God knows where?
-Waiting until 2018? And pay up-front? Really?
-The vibrant colors won't make it any prettier.

But I never tell people where to waste their money :)

Every product has its own positives and negatives and I don't think we should make the whole company responsible for one bad product, which this clearly is. If this camera was priced lower than the standard M262, because the loss of an LCD DOES warrant a fall in price, it could be a winner. But pricing it MORE than the camera that DOES have an LCD? Come on. As another poster noted, why not limit the frame no to 24, and while you are at it, make the raw files inaccessible for one day(development time) to give the feel of retro? I am beginning to believe that Leica has started snatching marketing boys/girls from Lomography. Their motto: Sell less for more! Ok customers are sheep and all, but even then...Oh, and I will not bother reading your negative comments, but if you have a lot of free time who am I to judge?
