AbrasiveReducer: It may be that Flickr was due to run it's course, no matter what. But anyone placing faith in Melissa Mayer to do anything besides generate headlines and look really good was optimistic with no reason to be.

I'm not sure where your "death of Flickr" mentality is coming from? There are, on average, 1mil photos shared to flickr per day and upto 25mil uploaded per day on high traffic days.

A very nice video.

I was seriously considering the GFX50S until you opened my eyes, Dale. The lack of integrated pet feeder is a real deal breaker!

On photo Sydney in the Your City - Full challenge (14 comments in total)

That's a blast from the past! Well worth saving it for this competition and the win.
My favourite part of this image is the "lane closed/wrong way" light on the left....it makes me image that everyone in that lane had to walk in the other direction ;)

mrmut: WHY??

Because some phonographers take photography as seriously as those with bigger camera's

FoxShutter: Honestly , except skin tones and some indoor low light shots, it looks dull and desaturated;although sharp.

@FoxShutter: Try the Velvia film simulation. It has punchier saturation and higher contrast than Provia (standard film sim)

DualSystemGuy: That PDAF banding really is quite awful, you can even see it on several of the thumbnails without blowing up the image. Not going to happen in every situation obviously, but depending on what you shoot it could be a deal breaker.

From the sample photos it seems to occur mostly when the lightsource is just out of shot and produces lens flare from directly above...at least with the two models on the bike. However I don't see it in the photo's with the dancers with similar light positioning.
Curious.
If it's a flaw, it's probably something that can be corrected in a firmware update. It might be easy enough to map out this pattern the same way dead pixels and lens corrections are done.

On a photo in the Benjamin Von Wong Dell E-Waste Photos sample gallery (1 comment in total)

This is my favourite of the three

I've been a long time fan of Benjamin Von Wong's work. This is up there with his best.

HB1969: Nice work Markus! I love the concept and the resulting images. My favorite is the double exposure of the woman with the camera. It looks like she's part cyborg.

Wet plate colloidal images last more than a century if cared for properly. I wonder what people 150 years into the future would think of these images.

PS. Also love the shirt "I shoot Metal".

"in 150 years they can still watch the images on a tintype."
Exactly.
I print my images for this reason...but I don't think paper lasts as long as tintype.

Lars, maybe its the new "kit" lens for the X-H1 ;)

DiffractionLtd: Sort of looks like only the $50,000 telephoto gets the full "clean-room" technique. Face masks, etc. The consumer lenses don't. But maybe they only need the full gear during intricate assembly?

That's good news, ipopov. It may be "standard operating proceedure" for all lenses during critical stages of assembly where they want to limit dust.

Tom Holly: Good video, but too much footage of the reporters during the actual production segment.

Perhaps this was due to confidentiality agreements.

You have one too many zero's. The MK cine lenses are "only" $5000 (USD) each :-)
You're right though, I would expect many of their high end cine, broadcast TV and possibly the GFX lenses to get siimilar clean-room treatment.

You beat me to it, sunhorse. I was going to remind everyone, "don't feed the trolls"

In reply to:

wjgo: Since the winner is now $549 - maybe take it off the list?

Half the camera's on the list are over $500 with their kit lenses so are you suggesting they should remove all of those too ;)

Sangster: Imagine how difficult a shot like this was back in the film era.

For medium and large format film photography, they used to use poloroid backs (on the cameras) so that they could get instant feedback on exposure and composition before using a film back to produce the final exposure. There are ways to blend multiple exposures in a darkroom too but I doubt it would be as easy as photoshop.

I have an xp90. I hate that plug. I ditched it ages ago and have been using an old phone USB charger instead.
