stromaroma: Great article but that last statement "We'd certainly recommend the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II for landscape photography"????? I wouldn't use either of these for landscape photography... unless of course one was magically in my hands when I wanted to take a photo, which would never happen because I doubt I'd ever touch one. There are much more practical / affordable alternatives for landscapes that would perform equally well if not better.

@Greg7579

Some really great photos you have in your gallery!

I didn't own any of these camera but I did seriously consider the E-550 and remember the review on DPR well. About this time I bought into the Olympus E-1 system which cost me a fortune. I still have and use my E-1.

qwertyasdf: Wow, first is the 2x macro lens, then a 15mm macro, then this lens, with a very interesting "Magic Shift" adapter (Interested to see how it works)
No matter how much I dislike the Chinese, this company is bringing out innovation after innovation in a field that is supposed to be creative.

Quite a racist comment OP. China is an enigma wrapped in a paradox hidden in an oxymoron.

bed bug: Having just recently my first Laowa lens (15mm macro), I have to say that I am most impressed with the piece of glass and the company. It is quite good fun to go back to your roots and shoot totally manual (no electrical contacts on these babies).

Kind regards
Stephen

I should hope there are no electrical contacts on any babies! But knowing a few, sometimes I wish there were!

Yahoo, so that is how you spell it. There's me thinking it was spelt Ya-who!

Do you lie awake at night wondering how big the world's largest contact print is?

Yeah! Funnily enough I do! Thanks DPR I can finally have a good nights' sleep.

speculatrix: dinosaurs mating

... as in its done at a high level. There is a load of noise, screeching and screaming. Lots of trampling. It takes time for the dush to settle and absolute months if not years to see any results. Finally, it won't stop the extinction event anyway!

KodaChrome25: There are people who hate AOL and refuse to use it. There are people who hate Yahoo and refuse to use it. And there are people who hate Huff-and-Puff-ington post and refuse to use it.

Now Verizon has brought all those people together.

It's going to be mass-hate!

It's an incredible piece of software for a one-off payment of $40. I was just so happy to finally ditch Adobe and move over to Affinity.

Adobe - the writing just may be on your wall.

On article Accusations fly over Fukushima photos (88 comments in total)

There are so many photographers clamouring for attention and prominance that the pressure to sensationise must be very tempting. In recent years I have noticed that in order to stand out from the (very, very large) crowd photographers have to go further, higher, more extreme and sometimes downright lie in order to capture that elusive beam of the spotlight.

QuarterToDoom: If people actually read the articles and the many comments you'd have know from day one that the places he visited the gov allowed people to go in for certain periods of time.

90% of the comment here are like Slashdot where RTFA before you post about the story.

Like it or not to me that would be quite the adventure but I guess he should have waited till Pokemon game came out then he would be a hero to all the idots staring at their phone walking around like zombies.

Nothing wrong with being a Zombie, at least you don't have to worry about death.

On article Behind the shot: Praia da Adraga at blue hour (91 comments in total)

I think it is a great image, I would be delighted to have made it myself. It is always interesting to read how people process their images. I don't use photoshop and only Affinity Photo for a tiny bit of cloning here and there. I process everything in Capture One and would love to have access to the source file to see what would happen if I processed it.

Does this mean you'll speak with a high pitched voice when using it?

Marty4650: Lars, I think this premise is seriously flawed. I think Motorola is missing the plot.

Most smart phone users DO NOT want or need "the best image quality." They are very happy with "pretty good image quality" for their snapshots and facebook photos.

Of course, there will always be A FEW who value the best image quality from their smart phones, but this is a tiny percentage of smart phone users. And not what anyone would consider enough of them to justify a larger, heavier or more expensive device.

I will believe that "best image quality" matters when one of these new high end phones with multiple cameras, high megapxels, or larger sensors starts to outsell the Apple iPhones or Samsung Galaxy phones.

I just don't see it happening. Because almost all of the users don't need the best.

@ J A C S,

Sorry I should have said the Nikon D800 and NOT the Canon 5DIII
