On article Fujifilm X100F Review (838 comments in total)

Maybe I'm missing something terribly, but:

"As you can see from the above demonstration, the camera's display doesn't inspire a lot of confidence in its subject tracking; the refresh rate is slow, the tracking isn't very 'sticky' as it jumps from our subjects faces, to their shirts, to the background, and so on. It just simply doesn't look like it's working.

On closer inspection, though, we found around two thirds of the shots are reasonably in focus, so tracking may be workable for casual use. We still can't recommend it for crucial moments, though, as we can on some competing systems.

Face Detection remains a dead loss, though. It can now be used in burst shooting mode but the camera doesn't recognize faces with any reliability, falling back onto whichever AF area mode you've chosen every time it loses its subject."

How can a product with such flaw still earns positive DPreview's review and, on top of that, a gold award? I mean, basically this feature doesn't even work.

Guidenet: Yeah, dump the typical DSLR for a Nikon DF or Fuji XPro2 et al. I can wear it with my Faux Giorgio Armani Hong Kong suit and a Bolex wrist watch and really impress the ladies. Hubba hubba! What you wear is more important than the photographs you make. Give me that retro look.

Haven't heard 'diatribe' in a long, long time. That's cool.

In reply to:

aris14: Photography is art. Stop.
The tools of this art are sophisticated devices called cameras and in nowadays tons of software. Stop.
The easiness of producing an image using a camera (its main tool) is colossal compared to other arts. Stop.
Furthermore this image may not require any particular education, culture or skills. Stop.
The aim of photography as art is common with all other fine arts. Stop.

Ι respect everyone's opinion for what he likes or not. Stop.
I do not pay any respect to all those who consider their opinion as an expert or specialist opinion just because they shoot some pix, the same way I would not pay any respect to the guy who paints my room and feels that he has an authoritative opinion for the work of Leonardo, Picasso, Dali, Turner (to name but a few), just because he can use a brush. Full stop.
Full stop.

I was scrolling down to see where all this was going. But this telegram post really made me laugh hard... omg... You guys are really something else...

Very beautiful. Could you elaborate on what place is it, and the history around it?

Was this manual blur or just dof?

In reply to:

RuthC: I think that HE is a seed bug; yes, he is a bug, not a beetle, as he has crossed wings that are typical of bugs. These sap-suckers are not very friendly bugs to have in the garden. Ruth :-)

She is a he? :) How did you figure that? Also, Google did not enlightened me on the species name..

I'm still unsure if this is a mockup or a real city. Looks like it's a large collection of wood miniatures. Very good.

Was it too much post-processed? Looks like it has light coming inside out. Really great.

Congratulations. The best one by far, both in idea and quality.

This challenge has an overwhelming amount of off-spec pictures.

In reply to:

RuthC: Many of these entries are sadly lacking leaves, which is a specific requirement for this challenge.

That's also true.

Besides, there are other works that could be read as 'single flower Photoshop challenge'. A little attention to that could cluster the pics in a more organized fashion.

That would not be a mere question of voting accordingly.
Because, as already said, these nonetheless beatifull, but non belonging participations, may prevent more genuine ones to show up.
With 386/400 and still some days to go, that may well be the case here.

In reply to:

Orenski: most of these images are... so manipulated, not photographs anymore... too much details... too sharp... unnatural and not realistic.

My thought exactly.
Wouldn't be more adequate to split in two challenges, with/without pp? Cause this looks more like a pixel art contest, which is also very nice, but maybe divergent from, say, photography per se...

Macro is one of my favs techniques...

Congrats, very beautiful.
