On article Design, looks and desire: Olympus does it again (391 comments in total)
In reply to:

fedway: The importance of visual design is never questioned in objects such as cars, motorcycles, houses, clothes, smartphones, food packaging, etc. Objects of use that demand as much in functionality as form. Yet, in a place like DPR which is supposedly about a visual art - photography- there needed to be an article trying to justify or explain camera equipment designed to be visually appealing.

If this site was about farm equipment or mining equipment, it would be more expected.

DPR is not about art or photography, it's about camera porn. If you want to talk about art, you're in the wrong place.

I wish Olympus could offer this pixel shift mode on the EM5II via fw.

emersonik: DPReview should educate its readers about the implications of higher MP count and to whom it would be useful.

If high MP were so universally important, why the kinds of 1Ds and D4s do exist?

Now I got that. This site is owned by Amazon...

Let's clarify this discussion.
I learn't a new type of argument: attack by agreeing. Mr. barnet said: "Because different photographic demands exist.
The d4s is made for speed. Large files with high megapixels will only slow it down." You made my point, pal.
Mr. barney said: "There's much less practical difference than you might think between (for example) a D810 and D4S at very high ISO sensitivities when the D810 files are downsized to match." So why shooting 36MP if you're going do downsample?
Mr. jtan said: "The readers can educate themselves by reading existing articles and the forums." Like this site?
Mr. hflm said: "Your statement implied (betweeen the lines) that it is not really necessary." No, what I meant was: it's not necessary for 90% of photographers, but they think that more MP is better.
I'd rather get more resolution with the same MP than more MP just for the sake of numbers.

I didn't say that more megapixels is bad.
Nor that more mp affect sensitivity.
Nor that the D810 shouldn't exist.

BarnET & Barney, so you agree that ultra high resolution isn't universally important, right? Just like I said.

I think this article explains for whom a high MP camera is beneficial: https://photographylife.com/how-much-resolution-do-you-really-need

And some fun stuff: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos5d/

D1N0: With aps-c moving to 24mp and even 28, 16 is just not going to cut it anymore. Eventually m43 will be a niche for street photographers who don't crop.

wadr, if you shoot a high MP camera just for cropping, you are a lazy photographer.
If this were so, owners of D4s and 1D X should throw away those cameras.

minzaw: too many conditions!

Actually there are just 2 conditions (not using digital filters). All the others are recommendations.

J Mountford: I have made a digital pinhole camera by simply taking off the lens, putting a sheet of tin foil over the lens mount, holding it on with a rubber band and poke a tiny hole in the middle and there you got it. Does that count as the pinhole lens?

I'm waiting for your photo.

Sorry by that, but I think it is feasible. There's a group at Flickr called pinhole in motion where you can find (among lots of garbage) nice examples. Don't be daunted, after all it's a challenge!

Nice theme. I didn't know this technique.

Folks, the picture MUST be a close up, but not a macro. Sorry if I was not clear in the rules.
See a past challenge called "human landscapes": http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Challenge.aspx?ID=2565
Almost all pictures there are bodyscapes (but the 5th would be disqualified in this challenge).

(unknown member): Could you provide a sample? Thanks.

Sorry, I don't have any personal sample. If you type in "bodyscape" at Google Images you'll see nice examples.

Where is the review of the camera, or at least, the studio shot?

feinschmecker: Is this the conclusion: "Buy this book on Amazon.com"?!?

A non-sponsored article, at last!
DPReview is becoming unrecognizable. Camera reviews are getting increasingly rare (not to mention lenses), and now they say that an iphone is all you need to take good pictures.
