Talk about being anal and boringly dramatic.
"Oh, hold it ! There it comes again, no, hang on, it's gone now, but wait, it's here again..."
Those monkeys who are pressing the buttons at Gatwick are the untouchable prophets of fake safety that no one can touch or kick or sack.
Totally bizarre.

It's amazing what a narcissist and a camera can do together.

There is so much garbage aerial videos about, one is tempted to only take pictures inside a dark wardrobe until the end of time.
Find out what people want and give them heaps of it.

genius schmenius
The whole notion of a genius artist is bogus marketing to charge heftily for what is claimed to be rare, nearly always after the poor fellow is dead.

Remembering my own excitement when I first saw a one megabyte drive, I am waiting for an injectable exabyte data bank that can be accessed by thoughts before I get excited again.

"The tiger was A-okay ....," writes Edwards on YouTube.

How is that Edwards? Did you place the animal under general anesthesia and examine his oral cavity for injuries?

Only in Sumatra they would let you use a protected species to have your lame video winning brownies on YouTube.

The most important element of a good photo in my view is the photographer's distinct humanity, invisible in all of these photos.

On article The new Canon 35mm F1.4L II will be a thing of beauty (227 comments in total)

In photo 1, the nocturnal bokeh is so poor I am thinking 'Leica please come back, we didn't mean any of the nasty things we said.'

This stop-start by Canon only shows their panic market behaviour.

Canon aficionados must be super loyal in the US.

This is the camera I would buy if I were a vampire.

Could you also inject some emotions in your reviews. The tactile factor, how it feels and balances itself, the inertia, if you can effectively hold it in one hand and move/rotate it with speed, the look, the seeing through the VF, the "type" of colour and contrast it replicates in different light conditions before you take the shot, the feel of the shutter, the sound of the shutter, how easily could it be heard, did you like or dislike the camera for reasons you cannot pinpoint. Subjectivity.

Maybe ask every reviewer to write a short poem about the camera at the end of each review. A lot of people choose their cameras that way, using these perceived subtle emergent qualities.

How else can you tell the people of the world that you own a Leica? Having given up taking fancy pictures with it to show them, it is possible that the owner got his second camera out, killed his Leica and took some pictures. After hammering the granite.

I like to see his smiling face to believe the story.

China is the place to go when desperate for a "man bites the dog" type of story.

To create something as significant as they did with Canon 5D MII, if we take into account all that's happened in the camera world since then, Canon would need to shoot much higher to really deserve sweeping these awards, or it will transform into a brand of second grade sensors inside over-priced cameras bodies.

If Sony's aggressive manners in sensor and camera R&D is the measure of who is more likely to last, Canon will be sweeping its own ashes in the foreseeable future.

The paparazzi are just trying to feed their families.

Who are the people, the end users who are buying these photographs and the magazines by millions? Don't they understand that most people don't appreciate to be photographed against their consent? How come nobody is calling them names? They are the ones who are strangely punishing their idols by financing the paparazzi. Maybe people get a kick out of inflicting pain on the rich and the famous.

That is where the money is, deeply seated inside the psyche of a very large number of people. It is called voyeurism and projection. It is a form of collective aberrant behaviour that needs legislation to change, not spitting at the photographer.

Find me :

1 A softly spoken lady head of a state that has been seeing tens of leaders of nations from around the world for the past tens of years and never ending a dialogue with harsh words or animosities,

2 With a uniquely large body of cultural and political experience that is second to none globally,

3 Is unquestionably loyal to the country and its citizens,

4 Cannot be bought by any money

5 Has been reading and writing and working relentlessly since her first foreign visit in 1953,

6 Is still engaged with tens of humanitarian and environmental activities around the globe, and a whole lot more,

And then tell me that man's fees.

Accumulation of wealth or spending are not in her top 100 priorities, and the gold goblets she drinks in, belong to British people. We pay to keep an institution alive, because it is our heritage and our history. The Queen is a trusted partner who is doing all the hard work.

Harry's champagne bills go with the show.

In reply to:

howardfuhrman: While it is tough for me to defend any tactics used by the Paparazzi in any circumstances, I have little sympathy for the Royal Family. They, by birth, not achievement are born to lives of opulence, primarily at UK taxpayers' expense. Many in the world seek photographs of their family. I do not blame the Royal Family for being upset. but that is the price of being public figures.

"They, by birth, not achievement are born to lives of opulence,"

Silly me. I thought nearly 100% of all the opulent souls out there have only their papas and mamas to thank.
