halfwaythere: Hopeless guy shooting with inferior Canon equipment this day and age. Just imagine how better this image would've been with a Sony sensor-ed camera.

I think you are missing the point. Just slightly. The image produced joy in the making and joy in the sharing for the simple reason that it contains tension that causes pause for thought and a moment of awe and visual pleasure. It was never intended be a technical competition.

In reply to:

Jogger: Interesting. Even Panasonic went with a standard PL mount and S35 sensor for the current cine camera. There are really no other m43 cine bodies other than this JVC... other than the discontinued AGAF100.

What about Blackmagic MFT mount?

Camera5: If you are looking for compact camera bags check out I just bought one of their shoulder bags and its stylish, functional and really well made.

photographykarma just for the record, Ona Bags make a large number of their products from waxed cotton (they are not all leather) and they are relatively affordable, very well made and stylish in an understated way, which is rare in camera bags.

lcolonezi thanks for the heads up on Tenba bags, very thoughtful design, apparently well constructed and affordable.

biza43: These actually make sense, it's just a downsize from their similar range for DSLRs. Believe or not, I have yet to find a good backpack that can take my E-M1 and lens, plus a small laptop, plus a variety of miscellaneous stuff, for travel.

This might be it, finally.

Check out takes laptops up to 17".

No amount of review data or online images can prepare you for the joy of using this camera. It's an imaging marvel.

In reply to:

peevee1: War photography is more useful than landscape photography will ever be. And yes, it DOES help to stop the freaking politicians' adventures.

Guys, this should not be an 'argument' about war photography vs other forms of photography. ALL photography serves as a constant enigmatic calibration of who we are and where we are. We will always be pointing our cameras at people and their actions as much as at our invironment, because that is the very essence of photography and has been from the beginning. We need it all, even the dark stuff.

The link above is a interview from the BBC1 “Imagine” series. It's truly fascinating and also has great music from Alex Baranowski. And be sure to check out his early work it's amazing. If anybody interested in watching it, just remember to click in the box where it says "continue as a free user".

Don't just check out Don McCullin's early work - you will do his extraordinary career a great disservice. Also check out the work he refers to in this talk, his English landscapes and his extraordinary book 'Southern Frontiers: A Journey Across The Roman Empire'

On article Tamas Dezso offers glimpse into post-Communist Romania (231 comments in total)

This photography is not spectacular but it is very competent and it is very felt. This is a poet's eye on a particular place. It is not meant to be a 'fair' representation of an economy it is just one man's creative vision and as such it is perfectly valid.

The photographs have a consistent quality and a clear creative 'signature'. I think the problem with DPReview and featured photo galleries is that they are trying to show images that are broadly in the visual domain of their main target audience - photo enthusiasts. It would really be much better to look at the work of master photographers. There are constantly great exhibitions around the world to keep things topical. And, frankly we should all be constantly revisiting the masters, they have much more to teach us than these skilled compatriots.

munro harrap: All the DSLRs here have AA filters so the Velvia has more detail and more acuity than anything else. Visibly- which comes to my next bother.
The screens we use cannot display the detail in files now. An HD screen does allow you to check details at 100%, BUT it is only 100% at TWO MEGAPIXEL resolution.

When you move to an iMac the first thing you think you notice is it makes your snaps sharper, but this is an illusion.

We do not have screens that can display these resolutions accurately yet, but the Retina is about the nearest.

Digital's problem is how it responds to different light levels, and the older the sensor is, and the more pixels it has with a stupidly too high black point setting (set your Lightroom blacks to -100 and see your photograph using medium contrast), the more the shadows are clogged with black specs.

To see how far we have come since film, be fair, use a large format film camera, obviously, and a Foveon sensor.


I think most readers understand the aim of the article, which I thoroughly enjoyed. There is also a take-away for buyers of MFT or APS-C systems. How long before they catch up with full-frame....or full frame catches up with the high end of medium format...and so on. Morals of the story? Buy good lenses - the sensors will just keep getting better and better. And, a great smart phone in your pocket is no good if you don't use it to take great pictures. Concentrate on the the photography, not the camera, remember it's an art form.

Johnny Liu: I voted the K-3 because i felt it was the only no compromise enthusiast camera in the list. Everything else is crippled in some way....

<"crippled", please grow up!> Since when does an opinion about a camera, any camera, warrant a condescending rebuke like this?
