marcio_napoli: In my years as a pro, I had a huge, massive, round zero advantage for being a man.

In fact, I was excluded of some specific segments I couldn't apply to, for example sensual photography (female clients simply said "no business with male photographer"). Also, a well know studio chain in my area only accepted female photographers in their staff.

So I can confidently say I had zero advantages for being a man, and also suffered sexism.

Did I cry like a baby for equality? Did I ask the World for pity or justice? Of course not.

You just shut up and fight. Fight like a man, sorry for the pun.

You know what women can do to have more space in the photo industry? Vote with their own presence, skills and passion.

In my whole life, I met very, VERY few women willing to learn anything behind the camera.

I certainly met more men interested in that nerdy craft. By far, I mean.

Maybe, JUST MAYBE, that explains why there is more male photographers?

I wonder the answer. Hmmmmmmmm...

@Marcio, Neither have I had any advantage. In fact, all during my life I have been disadvantaged, victimised, faced prejudice and discrimination for being autistic. I don't winge about it. Sometimes I had to use the law to protect myself.

mgblack74: I'm a PC user but Microsoft has delusions of Apple grandeur.

Regardless of hardware, I prefer using a Mac. I am very happy with using my Mac. If you prefer Windows, Linux, Solaris, that's fine by me. Some people just have to get over this immature and insecure fanboi-ism. It is a kind of tech version Peni5 envy.

Russar: The issues with Microsoft are:
- miserable OS, extremely low quality compared to Mac OS, which is based on super strong and secure Unix – my Macs have been working for many years w/o infections or any failures.;
- general low parts and manufacturing qualities; you may pay more purchasing a Mac, but it will outlast any Window machine.

And just look at this new Microsoft machine appearance: one bad imitation of iMac.

Look Children, use whatever OS makes you happy.

ecka84: Dear apple fanboys. How is this worse than using stupidly expensive Xeons (which you don't need for anything really) at half the speed (because it simply overheats like hell in Apple's "beauty-boxes" and needs to underclock itself to prevent burning down your houses) and running the most pretentious, narcissistic and awkward OS on it (the Mac), which you won't be able to update in a few years, because it won't support your 2-year-old "junk".
Please stop posting nonsense. Thank you.

There's always at least one complete Dick!

cosinaphile: no beauty mode just soft textures and "smoothening " which is one of those awful new american words entering the lexicon

the action is and was simply called smoothing , but decades of women straightening their hair and hoping to smoothen their hair ,,, led to the unfortunate "smoothening "
entering the language weird things happen when language is mangled within or outside a language ... so now "shampooing " is the nown for the liquid to wash ones hair in the french speaking world

so no beauty mode sjust smoothening and soft textures ? that clears it up???

@Cosinaphile "and it is proper english usage", sorry me ol' China, it should be "correct English usage".

"a daily dose of Chaucer will enrich anyone's day" (capitalisation and apostrophe error corrected), absolutely!

If you sign up do you then become an ARSonist?

If your photos disappear down a curated void, is that an ARS Hole.

Basically, you're ugly and Apple have a solution for that!

Daft Punk: So this iPhone will make me less ugly when I take a selfie of me and my underwear-model wife and our perfect instagram life ? And it does it automatically?

This is a problem why, exactly?

Aroart: Wow if I buy this lens I bet I'll be a better photo maker... Feel bad for people that can't afford it and lust for it thinking it would take them to a new level of sharpness and blurry overrated backgrounds..

Any time you buy a more expensive lens or camera it will ALWAYS make you a better photographer. The more you spend the better you become.

AlanG: They should have placed a big red star on it. Then in a year or so the could have released the MP version without the star for $500 more.

A red star is only a red dot with bits missing.

Suhas Sudhakar Kulkarni: Zenit and Leica are two opposite ends.
I would say they came together to 'make ends meet' lol

It should have been a case of never the twain shall meet.

Wye Photography: I would say that my Fuji X-10T is better at ISO6400 (which I actually shoot at a fair bit) and that makes me pretty happy.

Don't be Pricks!

That's why I use a KamLan 50mm f/1.1
