"Old fashioned DSLR" - did we just see the genesis of an oxymoron?

On article Judge strikes down fine against drone photographer (132 comments in total)

In the US, commercial photographers are required to have liability insurance to cover mishaps on their photo shoots. The actuarial body needs to add mini-drone flights into their risk calculations.

removed pro content from FB. Only provide links to offsite content. Once that catches on, they will probably claim that all content linked from them is now their content.

As my hearing is still intact, I unfortunately could hear it as well. Bleh.

Pictures and videos were good. Pity the band wasn't.

On article CP+ 2013: Interview with Olympus' Toshi Terada (242 comments in total)

No, the headline is correct for words ending in "s". Single apostrophe after the "s" to denote possession. I have experienced this for my entire life as my first name ends in "s". "Olympus's" is redundant.

The DNG Converter for Mac file is corrupted. Only 35mb of the 109mb downloads.

On article Lightroom Photo Import (117 comments in total)

I own several cameras and I need to separate their files by camera so I can find them easier. LR does not allow me to do this automatically, so I rely on Photo Mechanic to do this. Plus, the folder structure on my backup drive matches the structure on my primary drive. LR does not do this either.

Carlos Echenique: Considering his situation, I'd say he did a great job. Each of the shots shows the personality of the athlete being photographed. Considering it looks like he had one strobe, an improvised reflector, a paper background and some scrounged gels, Mr. Klamar may well be the MacGuyver of photography.

Bravo for a brilliant improvisation and a truly original take on this subject!

No, I do not know any of the athletes personally. I also have more emotional range than a teaspoon, so I can see some personality coming through the images captured. Whether that accurately reflects the personality of the athlete is another matter.

I have run into situations where the customer has demanded all of the photos taken at the shoot (having been there to watch you shooting) regardless of the image quality. Who knows, his contract may have required that (see the discussion about concert photographers).

millsart: Of course the hundreds of amateurs who could care less about their rights and merely think it would be cool to take photos at a concert are all waiting in the wings to take their place.

"Gee, you mean I can not only do my love of photography AND my love of music/concerns and instead of paying for a ticket you'll let me in free and give me front row access for 3 songs and all I have to do is give you the images! Awesome, where do I sign up"

Sadly, this is the most likely case. Infinite Number of Monkeys Syndrome. It all depends on how low your standards are for image quality. I shoot ballet professionally and it's not something any chimp with a DLSR can do. I haven't shot concerts, but I imagine the shots taken by a pro concert shooter far outstrip anything produced by an iPhone.

I hope the camera was off, otherwise kiss that sensor goodbye.

On photo PT3C8609 in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (4 comments in total)

Very nice. But for the record, whoever set up the display has the Police Spinner from Blade Runner in ground configuration (the front wheels should be rotated out 90 degrees so the tires are parallel to the ground and facing down). Very clean 12800 shot.

On article Sony confirms resumption of SLT and NEX manufacture (45 comments in total)

Hopefully, they will address some of the issues that plagued the prototype and review NEX-7 samples (poor wide angle performance, color shifts, poor high-ISO, etc) but I doubt it. They were probably moving as quickly as they could to recreate the assembly lines lost in the flood, not retooling/refining the product.
