A lot of wedding photography has become totally nonsense.

CameraLabTester: It makes one feel sick in the innermost being to unashamedly steal works of art and rehash them as your very own.

But then again, there are many in this World who are immune to that sickness.

Their Kryptonite® is Karma.

.

@Roland Karlsson "I can make a piece of art that contains your image". Yes, but you MUST have permission. Period.
If it was that simple as you say, anyone can make their own piece of art with top world photographers works, with minimal changes or additions and sell them in galleries "as a new own work".
As far as I know, it is very striking that he has not dared to use photographs published on IG by well-known photographers

R Vaquero: Could anyone please explain that if an artwork is made up of others photographs-or parts of one-, but the artist "transforms" in any way the original photo, there's no infringement?
If you are a musician and sample any part of other artists' previous recordings, you have to get the permission, otherwise you get sued. What about photography??

No way defending this "artist". He used images without permission, and that's all.

Agree, I do like a lot of creative sample-based music that makes something new from other recordings. But copyright must be cleared- by payed or free permission from original record owner- No place for stealing.

mikeoregon: What if the original image belonged to a powerful corporation, say Disney or maybe Getty. Would Prince have attempted to appropriate it? I doubt it.

Or he may take some Leibovitz's, Bresson's or Salgado's images and do the very same...would the court allow it in the same way?

Just like we say, it's something like sampling in music. You are not allowed to take any part from a recording, transform it and say that it is yours because you have integrated on you own recording. Maybe you have created something new, but you have to get the permission from the original recording owner to use it. If you don't get it, just don't use it because simply is not yours.

Yake, I've read it and agree. But I don't understand why they use "transformative" as an excuse to use others work in legal form.

Roland Karlsson: There is a great misunderstanding in many posts here. Many here think he just has copied images and claimed he is the photographer. And indeed - if he had done that - he is a simple thief. But no - that is not what he has done.

Look at the image above. It looks like an Instagram post made by rastajay92.

So what Prince has done is combining an image, by Donald Graham with an Instagram frame that says rastajay92 and then adding a text he finds suitable. A kind of transformation, which is what he also claims.

So - the judge is wrong when he says that Prince has done no alteration. 100% wrong. So, indeed, if that is the motivation why to convict Prince, it is totally wrong.

What the judge needs to show is that the altered image breaks the Copyright law. If he cannot show that, Prince should go free.

He has no permission to USE others' images, as well as nobody has.

My first DSLR as well, I did a lot of pro work with it back in the day, and some of my best images so far.

R Vaquero: I've never liked the subscription model, a lot of upgrades are useless even professionally. We should have the choice of upgrade only when we need it or want it- just like before.
Affinity is a great option, but it lacks the fast workflow for a pro daily use with a lot of images-at least by now. If Seriff take the advantage and makes Affinity really fast and productive, it will be a new standard.

String, nothing to do.

Linerider: Seriously??
These are points offer nothing new or significant and this is nothing more than click bait!

1: 12MP is good enough?
Then get the Samsung S7, its pretty much got the best phone camera

2: It shoots Raw?
So does the Samsung, and its a year older and cheaper. Why is this news?

3: The iPhone 7 Plus has a proper zoom. Kind of?
Ok, ill give it that, but the Samsung is wider

4: ???

5: The iPhone 7 Plus can do bokeh. Kind of?
There are many apps you can download which can pretty much do the same thing

6: It's optically stabilized.
Again, the Samsung, and cheaper.

7: It's quick, and powerful
Yawn! All new phones are quick and powerful

8: It shoots 4K
Did i mention the Samsung? Did i mention cheaper??

9: It's water-resistant
A year late, a buck short

10: Good iPhone cameras lead to better 'proper' cameras.?
And?? What does that have to do with the iPhone?... specifically??

10.5: It's an iPhone camera.
Irrelevant.
However this can be a minus as well as a plus.

Push the shutter button of a Samsung to take a picture and wait a couple of days to be really taken. Please Apple don't imitate this!

JonB1975: "Class leading Dynamic Range" Bit of a shame they took so long to release the review that there's now a DSLR which out performs it....

Which one?

Akpinxit: Personally , I'm highly impressed of IQ : at any ISO it is indistinctly close to FF D750 . Though if previously thought that crop body will serve as lite alternative - it is not . Surprisingly to me , this time it is the FF D750 100 gr. liter .

The D750 shows better results at high ISO performance in terms of noise. That's not surprising given the different sensor sizes.

piratejabez: Anyone else like most of the OOC JPEGs way more than the ACR-processed RAWs?

ACR manages noise reduction worse than Nikon software, either in camera or using Nikon Capture.

The D750 is made in Thailand
