On article Leica invites entries for its Oskar Barnack Award 2013 (34 comments in total)
In reply to:

onlooker: This blurb from the entry rules caught my attention:

"The images must also be stored with 72dpi in JPG format".

Good god, can Leica hire someone who actually has a clue? This is embarrassing.

@citizenlouie: You'd better follow the hints given by "onlooker" about the DPI/PPI myth. You are miles off-track with your concepts. Wish that camera makers would remove this stupid number from the meta-data in the picture. It would solve a lot of problems and avoid a lot of useless discussions. Not saying anything about fueling the wrong concepts, over & over. ;-)

Truly embarassing for Leica this 72DPI stunt. !!!

No one updated to FW 1.30? I just have this camera "on borrow" from a friend (3 weeks) It needs some brain pain in getting mastered within 24 hrs! ;-) Needing some mental adjustment when coming from a classic dSLR.

On article HDR for the Rest of Us (196 comments in total)

Not sure what the point of this article is. IMHO, The HDR concept has gotten a nasty smell by making it an equivalent of throwing in over saturated, Disney cartoon colors and telling the people that this should be their goal. Ban the cursed tone mapping! I do not need more lollypop colors in my pictures, I need a larger dynamic range! ergo a larger span to capture black to white.
& BTW the Iceland picture??? heck, I've been in Scotland on many occasions and I've seen similar landscapes under many kinds of "light" but I've never seen one like this ... (unless it was taken on Mars of course ...) extended technology promoted to an art(?) aberration?
