Too easy to pirate the film presets... And because they are frankly too expensive for what they do this does not surprise me. A LR preset needs to be a few dollars/pounds/euros. Not 100+ especially when these film 'emulsions' are free on phones!!!!! Think about it VSCO...

Scottelly: Why does it say "Warning: Graphic Image" in red on the black rectangle, where the image should be? I mean this is in no way a graphic image. There is no blood, no nudity, no violence - just a guy standing with a gun and another guy laying on the ground.

Is this just sensationalism?

Was the photo of the little refugee washed up on the beach graphic? No blood, no bullet holes, he was just lying on his front... but that was most certainly graphic, shocking and desperately sad. Why is this image *any* different, a few seconds after a murder has taken place?

Sorry Scottelly, but your disregard for human life actually leaves me feeling sick. I can only assume you do not know the background story?

In reply to:

quietrich: Although these roundups are useful as an overview of current cameras in a particular class/budget, I suspect the 'which camera should I buy' conclusion is click bait. The answer to that question should always be the same simple one, that you should buy the camera that best suits the work you do, and feels most intuitive to you. Any other answer is just baseless generalising.

I agree absolutely!! The K1 only receiving a silver is *for me* laughable as I will never shoot video or use continuous AF... but as a complete package this may be about right.
However, it renders the overall scores useless... unless you shoot a bit of everything!

HRC2016: I condone photography done where a photographer did not have permission from the property owner.

Photographers who break the law are criminals, and no "code of conduct" gets them off the hook. They are not much different from those who go off-trail or off-road to get a unique angle.

People who photograph someone's property without permission are not much different from those who use another's photograph without permission. As photographers we should respect everyone's rights. Not just when it's convenient.
Trespassers cause many problems, including more fences and signs that detract from the landscape.

I don't know how much of what I've stated applies to these photos/photographer as I'm not giving this genre my attention other than to show it is not all positive.

Trespassing in the UK isn't a criminal act unless you break and enter... hence 'code of conduct'. Might be different elsewhere, but here I'm no criminal!!

Photomonkey: More decay images. Yay!
Glad to see the hipster schtick is still popular.

Ha! On this site it tends to be the dull 'place tripod here' landscape imagery, so surely it's good to see something a little off piste on DPR?!

As someone who loves to go 'Urbexing' (Urban Exploration), I fail to see how this is a 'voyeuristic act'. The unwritten rule of Urbexing (at least in the UK) is that you 'leave no trace' whilst appreciating the faded grandeur of the site you hope to gain access to. I see myself as a privileged photojournalist, often documenting the beauty of the last breaths of a building prior to its imminent demolition.

That the judges have exceptionally poor taste...

mario loconte: No autofocus, what's the point

If we were looking at 85mm you'd have a point... but at 20mm your comments are not really valid.

Using DOF calculator... FF 20mm @ f1.8

If your subject is 10 feet away then anything between 7.12 ft and 16.8 is in focus!! Who needs AF did you say??

Light Pilgrim: I was waiting for 2 years for this camera, but for some reason I am not over the moon. It is nice, for sure. I need to see the quality of RAW files and will decide based on IQ. Why folks are so excited about the joystick? I have in Canon for many years

The RAWs will be the same as the XPro2 surely?

In reply to:

marc petzold: The sad thing is, in 5 to 6 years ppl came out, claiming that the K-1 is vintage and ancient tech, and one can't make decent images with it...

I hope the best for Pentax, that their K-1 would outsell the D8x0, and they'd develop an semipro level FF (24 MP) with the same features, to compete with the D750 & 5D Mk. III(IV then later)

Pentax truly deserved it, their K-1 gets the most out of this 36 MP Sony FF Sensor tech from 2012. Togehter with their unique features, and much cheaper price compared to the D810, the K-1 should being accepted onto the market very well - if one isn't already onto the Nikon train.

Roland - I've been curtly informed by someone here on the Fuji forum that the original X100 wasn't up to the job of imagemaking anymore and more recent iterations had what it takes to make a good picture... You and I know thats not true, but for some, cameras stop working once a newer model has been released!! :)

Love love love the work of Tom Heatley & Feiyi Wen.

All worthy winners but some of Camille Michel's work is sheer perfection. I suspect some of the detractors would prefer images from Sonys World Photography Awards... or maybe a Peter Lik ;)

As a dyed-in-the-wool digital shooter who has recently started shooting film, I totally get this camera. I love the anticipation of getting the negs back and forgetting about some of the images taken. Having said that, why not just get a film Leica for a ¼ of the price?
