Fox328: 10 reasons why you should not care about the iphone-7
1. It's an Apple
2. You always pay to much for what you get
3. It's ios not android
4. It delivers new things android users already got
5. It has a camera with only 12 mp
6. It's most of the times broken if you drop it
7. We still don't know if the software blur works
8. It's almost the same as last years model
9. Apple is either a hype or a religion
10. You will not enjoy the more innovative brands at this moment
The above is only written because i don't see any sense why dpreview should place this advertorial. The only pro thing i could find was that it's possible to shoot in RAW. The rest don't make any sense, just like my 10 reasons.

@Thuravi Kumaaran, Are you taking the Pith? That Apple article is a plain simple load of rubbish. Are you a conspiracy theorist as well? Load of Nonsense!

mr.izo: So... as a non-us resident i probably can't be part of this (not that i really want)? I belive dpreview is international portal, so why you keep coming with this us-only stuff?

Ups, keep forgetting that amazon is boss here..

Yes! You can enter, but your images must be of the USA.

caribou: These competitions make the owners very rich! Huge amounts of money pour into their pockets. A huge cash flow pouring into a big hole. All quality competitions should be free!

I stopped paying to enter competitions 20 years ago, when I saw ex-photographers making tons of money creating fee paying competitions.

Yep, my view exactly. I feel a lot of people are too "blind" to see this. I guess the "blindness" comes from the lure of the prize money and the resulting publicity.

A nice little earner, a veritable cash cow.

"Ansel made photographs, he didn't take them': Jeanne Adams interview"

https://www.dpreview.com/videos/7587024559/ansel-made-photographs-he-didn-t-take-them-an-interview-with-jeanne-adams

Photography ends when I push the shutter button. After that PP takes over. Many of my own pictures are the product of my imagination and visualisation. However, I would like to see a competition where PP is not allowed. ie what comes out of your camera is your picture. I propose this not because I am against PP but because I am for PP. Having a no PP competition I feel would be more challenging.

Lots of negative and conspiracy theory people on this site!

@The Davinator

Armchair photographers are the worse kind. Full of "hot air" and no substance. All they talk about, as you mentioned, are tech specs and are probably too fat to go out into the landscape to actually do the job. Or they are too ashamed and inept to even show their own pictures because their egos are much too fragile and instead troll other photogs to boost their own low self-esteem. Tech specs is all they have.

What I would like to see is a "no processing" competition.

4agze: Over saturated and HDR'ish shadow lifting images, I'll be surprised if Sony or Nikon doesn't win this :D

So 4agze here is your big chance! And if one or more of those shadow lifting HDR jobs is shortlisted or wins, what does that tell you?

@Len_Gee

Tube amps are still superior to modelling amps, especially for crunch/gain/overdrive.

Don Sata: No X-Pro1

@Sam Santana

I am really impressed with ID. Clear winner in sharpness and detail (why do photographers obsess over sharpness). White balance better too. Highlight recovery about the same as C1 but better than LR.

C1 has the tools I need, namely heal, mask, brush, gradient and colour control. If ID had these tools then I would be a convert. An impressive piece of software that puts larger companies to shame.

On article Opinion: Park vandals need to be stopped (336 comments in total)

"Take nothing but pictures and leave nothing but footprints" is the old adage I live by and have nothing but great respect for wilderness areas. These complete bastards are a shame to the human species. I am speechless!

What can be done to prevent such occurrences? Crushing their testicles with the fragments of rock they have destroyed springs to mind. That will certainly stop these cretins from passing on their worthless genes to their poor unfortunate offspring.

FLruckas: It is not black and white.
It is grey scale.
If it were black and white it would only produce black and white, not tones of grey.
This is not lithography film.
:-)

Isn't grey a mix of black and white?

@Sam Santana

Reading, listening and discussing with people in the industry Sam. If true, I can understand Fuji's reluctance to grant full compatibility to their files. The XTrans sensor is excellent and it would NOT be in Fuji's best interests to reveal what they do to their files. This has to be balanced by the conclusion of your comment which is a very valid point.

As for ID, never tried it but now will as I would like to see how a "one-man-band" compares with C1 Pro. Perhaps ID has (or has not) decompiled the .RAF files whereas other companies have not due to the issues that may arise.

TonyPM: Two of those photos were made with entry level Canons! Something is going wrong in this world!

No, nothing going wrong! It is the obsession with pixel peeping latest and greatest that is perverse.

The use of "entry level" cameras here is encouraging. It means you can make superb images with gear that is considered modest and proving it is the photographer that makes great pictures. It is a fact that Canon and Nikon just don't want you to know.
