717: This would be cool if it was an EXACT copy, but a sort of looks like it with some other lens design inside - meh. Kind of like putting a fiberglass MG body on a VW, it is not an old MG and does not drive like one.

lol. If you want an exact copy, buy it used and with a 13x18 camera. Good luck!

CatchAlive: I am honest: if this kind of article is the future of DPreview, I will sign out.

What's next? "You want a Leica but you don't enough money? Let's see the cheapest way to emulate a Leica" or "You can't afford the new Zeiss Otus? Here is a listing of lens way cheaper that will do the job"

It reminds me when I began guitar in the 90s reading articles like "5 ways to get Satrini's sound... cheaper"

@davesurrey I like to read articles about exhibitions, prizes and news in general.
I dislike the most popular camera section and some of their "analysis" :-)

Considering the value; I think you're right. For me, the value of DP is slowly decreasing. I'd love they take the way of Ming Thein type of analysis :-) But I understand they have to follow their way and not to copy other...

Hugo808: I would have insisted that Rod Stewart put on the matching top for his shorts.

And Yousuf Karsh needs to work on his PP I think, otherwise a great portrait of a great man.

obviously, the Churchill picture has been kind of PP :-)
Google "churchill karsh" and see how many pimped version of this picture you can find on the web :-)

@davesurrey: My opinion is: take what you want or what you like and what you'll be happy to carry around to take your photos. I don't need any article to tell me "you can use xxx brand instead of yyy branded camera..."
It's maybe because I am happy wiyh my gear and the pictures I take... :-)
But I understand other people may like to read this kind of analysis.

armandino: One more time I have been reminded that I could never win a prize in any contest.
Perfect examples of wasting money on an expensive camera. Wouldn't want Hasselblad to showcase what their cameras can do? An iphone would overkill for these shots.

Armandino: Yes we love sarcasm.
I hope that someday you'll find a prize that fit your own criteria (that was not sarcasm).

Dazaau: I don't care what people think - I'm going to say this - these are crap. Call me a Neanderthal all you want, but if you shot these for a client who was only paying you a lousy $20 for a portrait, and this is what you gave them, they would still complain - and want their money back.

Well FLruckas, you hit just. You are looking for images. I am looking for photography. ;-)

You miss the point too...
This is not commercial nor corporate photography! It's art photography!
The aim is to express something; not to sell corporate "well looking" "pixel pipped" shots to a client...

Dumb.
What a Hasselblad camera can do than other branded camera cannot?
Rineke D is not "famous" for the brand he uses but for the photos he takes...
Instead of complaining not winning prize, ask yourself why...

ewelch: National Geographic preferred Kodachrome, but I understand why that's never coming back.

I'm betting people will drop it like a hot potato when they realize the price of 36 frames.

It isn't the stock that makes the picture, it's the photographer.

"It isn't the stock that makes the picture, it's the photographer."

You're right. A good photographer will be good on both film and digital. No need to choose between.

In reply to:

electrophoto: The title seems to be a tad misleading...

"getting the right shot"

I don't know the body of brian ach's work - so I try not to lash out in harsh critique based on a few photos... but if the chosen photos are any bit representative - IF ... then the work is very mediocre.¨
I've been photographing for many years and I've seen countless exhibitions ... but honestly rarely something by a "professional" as un-inspiring as the presented photos.
and the Lambo? is this a joke? or is it "good" because it has a Lambo in it? or a bit of panning?...

Snapshots... fine - but publish grade work by a pro? no.

The Lake for example - even googling the subject will lead to countless more interesting pictures, from more interesting perspectives, with better lighting, composition, etc.
Same goes for "Barcelona"... a city that has so much to offer not just photographically, but that shot looks like a snapshot. fine... but bland and not something I'd put on a portfolio or publish.

electrophoto: Your comment proves you didn't watch this video. Watch it and then comment...

In reply to:

ewelch: Well, not sure I'd say the right shot. But that's subjective. That's the best he could get from Prince? Is the singer formerly known as a symbol on cold medication?

For my taste, the group of rap singers? Cliché. Cheesy.

Lighting? Way over-lit. Like I said, my taste.

Man, before judging a photographer watching only 6 on his pics, you should ask yourself why he works with the greats one and take a look at his work over his website.

When you'll review the new Leica Monochrom, maybe you'll list in the cons the fact it only capture monochrom pictures....
