On article Finalists in Taylor Wessing portrait prize announced (93 comments in total)

First it's sad, then it's so sad it's funny, then it's so funny it's sad.

But right at the end it's funny.

mmm...No, it's really very sad.

I'm laughing though.

The Leica magic is visible in every shot. Very annoying indeed.

brycesteiner: Just got mine today! Now I need to learn how to not crash.

Best of luck to you.
You'll be fine. And if you crash it's all for the sake of art and adventure. Just replace the damaged parts and keep flying.

Go unannounced?

Then you'll have to conseal a vessel to deal with the fluids.
I say go announced and be proud of wetness.

A one inch sensor deserves to be able to fly beyond 31 minutes.
There's no point teaching your grandpa new Timberlake moves if you cannot remedy his arthritis.

On article Nikon announces 64GB and 120GB XQD memory cards (228 comments in total)

You get ONE new untested camera with ONE relatively failure prone XQD. You put one inside the other and head out for that "shoot or get shot" assignment.

It's like trusting Kinko to take your rottweiler for a walk.

What on earth happened to the cliche wisdom everyone has been splattering at the newbie photographers for the last half century?:

"Invest in lenses."

Now it's suddenly "Invest in Nikon's late-arrival camera and prepare to pay for new not-yet-existing lenses?"

The problem is not the camera which is just another OK camera.
The stupidity is on the price tag.

Teaser definition by Webster :an advertising or promotional device intended to arouse interest or curiosity especially in something to follow.

On article The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 takes aim at the iPad Pro (266 comments in total)

Apple total company value just surpassed 1000,000,000,000 US dollars. That is 1000 billion.

And what do they give us? The new Mac Book Pro, which is a joke compared to all the top Windows laptops.

Profit, profit, profit, tech. Profit, profit, profit, tech.This is how they tick. Very old fashioned. In less than ten years they are ash.

"This new mount is Nikon's response to the challenges of the future."

Finally, a lens mount that addresses climate change and over-population.

Obviously most want to look through a bright viewfinder, and shoot high res photos of fast moving things with the toys they already own while the camera is shaking.

This proves that grown up boys want exactly the same thing as when they were 7.

This is a great example of the Chinese business thinking.

Buy Ferrari so that you can stick their logo on your handbags.

The Hasselblad name on dji products will make more money than Hasselblad does selling cameras.

On article Nikon counts down to new mirrorless (1050 comments in total)

Nikon here is hoping to produce a hard edge and a turning point for photographers' expectations vs the story of Sony and how it fashioned a soft edge with its revolutionary products. In this sense, there is a heavier burden on Nikon than ever before and above Sony's efforts and their constant anxiety to produce and to keep up.

Sony executives are uncomfortable. A feeling they haven't experienced for a while.
Will Nikon show an ace card?

In reply to:

Tape5: The second you hold your iphone or any other camera up to take a photo for the purpose of winning an award your photo is doomed to be pretentious and contrived. That kid with the fish is a hilarious example.

@entoman

"I was not in any way defending Tape5, whose comment was pure trolling."

Firstly yes you were defending me, secondly my comment was not pure trolling.

Any art is created to be trashed by some and loved by others. Any artist who creates a work of art and expects all to fall backward in praise is brain damaged. However, the point here is that I disliked the photos and expressed my reason. I do not know the photographers. I did not attack the photographers, only what they have created.

But Mr Love Nazi who believes we should all have the same opinion or else, should understand that the real hater is the one who hates another person for expressing his/her views and not the one who criticises photographs.
