balios: Sneaky. They've split the images into a checker-board pattern. A right-click save-as only gets you a tiny portion of the image. Adding to my Monet desktop backgrounds is going to take some work...

No, if you click what looks like a download icon at the bottom of the image on its descriptive page, you'll get the whole image at full size. On a Mac, you then just Control-click and select "Save image as". Dunno what the equivalent command is on a pc.

EssexAsh: "photographer Art Wolfe has built perhaps one of the strongest brands in his field."

Who? Guess his brand could be better. Whoever he is.

And who are you? Ignorant and proud of it!

Prairie Pal: Mostly muddled and distracted even if you reclassify it as surrealism. I always enjoy creative endeavors, but even the better of these lack enough polish to reach "meh" status. 1,3,7,11&12 are disasters.

It's your loss if you are too jaded to appreciate beauty when you see it.

Volkan Ersoy: Question: How many of you have visited the award site and looked at all of the photos (i.e. to see the whole story) before making a negative comment here?

Some of the photos on the award website are better than the winning photos, and some are a load of crap. Personally, I'm shocked by how many totally ordinary photos received awards.

Just what we always wanted to know: What types of photos are most popular with people who have NO TASTE!

On article 900MP portraits show human face in extreme detail (279 comments in total)

As many others have said in so many words, I totally fail to see the point unless one is obsessed with closeups of nose hair or something like that. It is very easy to capture a pin-sharp image of any face by mounting almost any DSLR on a tripod and attaching a garden variety portrait lens.

For starters, this camera strap is ugly as sin!

Ugly as sin! Otherwise... Hey look, it's a camera!

louisjaffe: As owner of the Sony-badged E-mount Tamron 18-200 used on a NEX-7, I have to echo the previous comment: How lousy will this new super-zoom be? The 18-200 is only passable at wide-to-mid angle settings, and unusable at tele for any serious work.

I don't know why it's so hard for some people to understand that lenses like these are not meant for people who think super zooms are an incarnation of the Devil himself. For many, many amateur photographers, a lens like this will be a dream come true. Must everyone in this forum always trash everything that doesn't meet their exalted standards?!

oldman1234: Have several of the Sony camera including rx100....Migrated from Minolta to Sony. About 3000 in cameras 3000 in lenses..Guess what the $95 point and shoot does 95 percent of any of the highend camera. The present day digital camera has 20 more years to catch up with film......if ever

"The present day digital camera has 20 more years to catch up with film......if ever"

Baloney! Even pros struggled to capture low-noise photos in low light in the days of film. In a head-to-head test of low-light capability, even the best film camera would fail miserably because of the limits of film.

On article DxOMark tests Nokia Lumia 1020's Raw image quality (96 comments in total)

Most people who think a smart phone is a camera don't even know what RAW capability is. To each his own, but carrying a small, high-quality pocket camera at all times is the easiest thing in the world. Who needs a phone that deludes itself that it's a real camera?

Joachim Gerstl: Anyone still using Photoshop?

Dumbest question of the year by a wide margin.

I want a virtual toaster and I refuse to sign up for Adobe CC until they include one!

On article Integrating the Apple MacBook Air into a pro workflow (346 comments in total)

I think it's hysterical that some people insist that a MacBook Air doesn't have enough power for photo editing. I was editing photos in Photoshop on a 12" powerbook G4 for months on end more than ten years ago with no trouble whatsoever. By modern standards, that computer was a dinosaur.

But consider this: No laptop is ideal for critical photo editing because the brightness and contrast of the image change as the viewing angle of the screen changes. Because it is very difficult to position the screen at exactly the same angle every time you use the machine, it is almost impossible to edit consistently from one session to the next.

On article Entry-Level Mirrorless Camera Roundup (2013) (94 comments in total)

Do you all think Fuji is likely to add wireless remote control to the X-M1's capabilities in the future? And if so, could they do it with a software upgrade? To me, this is one of the most interesting new features now appearing on some of the newest cameras.

In reply to:

Jim: That study sounds like complete nonsense to me. I've never heard of anyone expressing ANY lack of memory of an event due to having a photograph present. If anything, the complete reverse is true. Nonsensical studies like this are a waste of time and money. I just hope it wasn't funded by taxpayers.

As an aside, why is this even posted on this website? Helloooooo.

Jim

When you photograph an event, you also HAVE THE PHOTO—which allows you to retrieve far more information about the event on demand than anyone could ever remember.

The Fuji X100S is NOT better than your EOS M I. The M I is the BEST camera in the world and you are a GENIUS for buying one!
