Rob890: Technically its really nice, however it doesn't feel as if a story is being told rather a sort of showcase the skill of the person's skill. Also I stopped watching after 2 min, for it stared of become repetitive to me. New York City is more than just Mid-town and Lower Manhattan.

He showed a little Brooklyn in there too.

soller: You mean mm not cm right?

Nope. 40cm equals 15.75" (almost 16")

Roland Karlsson: So. No motor? And how do it glide? And can you adjust the speed?

Push the camera sideways with your hands?

Wow! $249! It would seem to me you could build one for a fraction of that price.

On article Instagram gets a new logo, monochrome interface (88 comments in total)
In reply to:

Cdog: Really wish they would update the app to allow for landscape orientation for, ya know, photographs!

Nope! Only 1:1 ratio with this instagram software. I think this version of Instagram is the only one that will work with Gingerbread 2.3.6, which is what my phone uses.

But somehow I'll survive. Life goes on. :)

Thanks CIASpook. I was able to get the Instagram app for Android by downloading it with my computer and into my phone with a data cable. The Instagram Layout app however says, "This app is incompatible with your device" so that's a no-go.

My Samsung smart phone is now so old that Google no longer supports the Android operating system it has which can no longer access Google Play / Market to download the Instagram app. So I was able to download an earlier version of Instagram to my phone with only has the 1:1 square aspect ratio with no landscape or portrait mode support.

It is a pain since I have to re-crop my images square, reposition my watermark, upload them to my phone before sending them to the web.

And no, my phone's Instagram icon didn't change to the new one although it did on my computers.

If you're using an old phone that might be why you're still with the square ratio as well.

Since my phone still does everything else fine I won't be updating it until this one breaks in half!

Pete_CSCS: Nope! The Polaroid Swinger of 1965 was an inexpensive ($19.95) instant camera before the OneStep ever came along! And one of the top selling cameras of all-time.

Here made famous by an unknown Ali MacGraw with an unknown Barry Manilow singing the theme song he wrote for this commercial.

PeaceKeeper:

I agree. The first LAND camera (model 95) made more of a "LANDmark" historically than the later day models ever did.

h2k: Great photos of course, and perhaps Prince also liked them because he's kind of glorified in these pictures, and we don't see any of his co-musicians just once in this selection. When Prince called them to look at the photos (as told early into the story), they might as well have been miffed to not appear on screen themselves (if they saw glorifying Prince-only pictures like the ones presented here).

Amazing how he caught the flying guitar, when he was not even prepared for the moment. Wonder if ever people got hurt by a guitar flying in.

h2k:
If I were Prince, I'd put several big roadies sitting side-by-side in the seats and throw the guitar to the one in the middle to assure no one got near it. :)

You didn't miss that from this article. It was told in Brian Ach's keynote talk in the PIX2015 video that is here in DPR's Video section (along with many other interesting stories).

Prince had a roadie in the seats waiting to catch the guitar each time. Most of the time he caught it. When he didn't, the guitar got repaired. :)

This story as per Brian Ach.

If you liked this article, I recommend watching the video of Brian Ach's keynote presentation at PIX2015 "Stories of Getting the Right Shot" which has more information on many of these Prince images shown here. DPReview has this right here in their video section.

Prince is talked about not only near the beginning of the video but throughout along with shots of other bands, celebrities, cars, travel shots, etc.

What a crazy year for celebrity deaths! RIP Prince.

In reply to:

pixtorial: .. as for the Pen-F, this review shows clearly that it is its own m4/3 camera when compared to the OM-D series especially. The bigger question I think becomes this: Pen F or GX8? Or even GX85?

I enjoyed seeing the context of the photos taken and shared here. I think it goes to show that the end result is what matters. No, the Pen F doesn't shoot like a full frame DSLR, and it isn't a Leica. But a Pen F and a couple of nice primes cost less than many a FF body and gives you a diminutive kit for travel and street photography. There are several things I think I would prefer over my OM-D E-M10ii, including the fully articulating LCD.

Great video, a useful experiential review, and would love to see more stuff like this!

So you're comparing a camera that just came on the market (Pen-F) and isn't discounted yet to one that has been around 2 1/2 years (Nikon D610), discounted $700 and is still $100 more than the Olympus?

Hmmmm. Why not compare it to what the Olympus will cost 2 1/2 years from now?

Pete_CSCS: Bravo to DPReview's Dale Baskin & Rishi Sanyal for doing their homework before conducting this interview. I got the feeling that Mr. Lubezki was impressed with the intelligent questions you were asking.

Rishi, all your years of admiring and analyzing Mr. Lubezki's films were your "homework."

This camera was just announced, isn't avaiable until March, yet 5 people had it and got rid of it!

I guess 425 focus points wasn't enough for them.

HaroldC3: It looks quite a bit smaller than the GX8 but I'm guessing the same sensor?

+BarnET

Plus Olympus recently filed patents for a few FF lenses. Oly could now be making Sony glass as part of the technology exchange that was talked about when Sony first bought part of Olympus.

Looks like the interview was done with a Zoom H4N recorder. You should have used an Olympus LS-100 for this one.

Don't know if it's true, but somewhere I read the sensor is made by Sony, not Panasonic.

nicolaiecostel: Olympus sure like to brag, don't they. I think their E5 had the fastest AF in world at some point. Whatever happened to that ?!

nicolaiecostel:
What happened? Olympus came out with the E-M1 which was even faster!

Fuji, Sony and Panasonic all have claimed the, 'World's Fastest Autofocus' at some point so every company brags about something, not just Olympus.
