looker: Digital has every single advantage over film.
every. single. advantage. which can be measured.

"Tell me which ones?"
Read my original comment again Davinator. It says "every single advantage". That means every single advantage. That means that digital is superior to film in every way.

"have never learned to shoot film"
lol, I've shot so much film, if you saw it all you'd wonder how on Earth is there enough left for anyone else. I've been a full-time professional for 35 years, so it's not like I had a choice. Back in the day, I literally used still cameras with 100 ft. rolls of film - quite a few of them in fact. I even processed and printed truckloads of color film. I've shot on just about every form of film. Thank goodness those film days are over.

Some day, this tree will die. And what might be worse is somebody might put a fence around it. Thank goodness photographers have taken so many wonderful images while they still can.

"particularly instagrammers" makes no sense. There's no way to tell if instagrammers have menaced the tree more or less than those that don't have an instagram account. This website does a great job, as long as it's technical writing. Suggestion: DP Review, you should never stray from the technical path. Never.

Did this article get revived from 20 years ago?

No doubt Unsplash is reducing the amount of money paid to photographers. But let's look on the bright side: No doubt Unsplash is increasing corporate profits.

On article Panasonic G9 added to studio scene comparison (166 comments in total)

The camera says "Lumix" on it. You might as well call it Lumix G9.

If your drag and drop skills are helplessly dysfunctional, then this app is for you.

If you're looking for a way of stripping away every advantage of having your own camera, and adding nothing of value, then this is the camera for you.

Based on the drawing, it looks like the screen will interfere with hot shoe attachments.

Playing catch-up with Godox.

Would the Lumix G85 have been included, if it didn't blow these two clean out of the water? I suppose the G85 is a bit more expensive than these two, but still worth mentioning because it's far superior.

The Sony CX405 is already 2 1/2 years old. And it only shoots in 1080P. Compare an older Red to a new 4K Sony camcorder and the Sony will wipe the floor with the Red. This video is a farce, made by a liar.

looker: Sal Cincotta probably got more favoritism at WPPI than he did in his own contest. And I'll say what Fro didn't: Cincotta is a farce. He's a shyster. This photo won the 2015 Grand Award for bride by herself. WPPI and Sal Cincotta are trying to tell us that this represents the very best of the best of wedding photography in 2015.

If this example doesn't turn you off on Sal Cincotta and WPPI forever, then nothing will.

brujo74: Shocking! A pic won a photography contest!

I don't believe you're so dense Ash. But let's put the shoe on the other foot just in case... Imagine the same kid, dressed as an Amerindian Chief in full feathered regalia. Or how about as a Samurai Shogun? You get the idea. The image is both cultural appropriation and cultural imperialism. And to cut right to the chase: Genocidal.

The only distinguishing aspect of this shot is it's a Genocidal insult to Switzerland. The judges have an agenda.
