Thematic: How did #2 the underwater image not win? Erez Beatus, Australia. 'Life in Blue'

Anyone explain that to me. That image is fantastic.

Being Leica, maybe they wanted the winner being from Germany?

Lytro could have been a great camera for macro photography, where people often need to take multiple images and stack them together to obtain sharp image. If the subject moves fast, stacking becomes hard. Lytro's approach would hav solved the problem, if just sufficient resolution was available.

On article 2015 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras $800-$1200 (159 comments in total)

Full frame EOS 6D costs less than $1100 in some places. I would pick it up before any APC-C cameras in the same price range.

I wonder if meteors were copy-pasted into the single photo based on their position relative to stars or their position relative to the landscape?

I never liked the older Lensbaby lenses, they looked cheap and optics were not good. This one seems to be much sharper and has better built quality. Still not going to buy it, but they are definitely going to the right direction. The hazy effect is nice.

JKP: Ok. Placed an order on 14th January and got my copy today. There was a small black velvet bag and a separate UV-filter included in the package. Took quickly some photos. I think the lens looks pretty promising, an euro coin here at maximum magnification (Canon EOS 6D, ISO 100, F8, 1/100 sec):

Some softness at corners, maybe they are slightly out of focus.

Weird.... When I google "flickr", hit "Welcome to Flickr...Explore" and start watching photo after photo by hitting right arrow, I get _no_ Apple photos at all. Pretty much only Canon and Nikon, a few Sony and Fuji but that's it.

Where have all the Apple iPhone photos dissapeared?!

Paul JM: Erez, a couple of comments refer to the 'DR' of the A7, but surely there is some HDR action going on in post here ?

If HDR, the effect is kept subtle, nothing like those typical "old rusted car" HDR-photos.

Maybe next version will have narrower bezel. Top and bottom are quite wide. I would rather see those areas occupied by a larger screen.

On article More manual control on iOS with Manual Cam (46 comments in total)

Why Android is always behind? Manual controls should have been there in phone cameras from day one for those who need them.

On article Camera51 for Android guides your photo composition (47 comments in total)
In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: This was inevitable. Everything else is automatic so why not? The next thing will be a true program mode. Just set it to "wedding", "landscape", "portrait", "over saturated for Flickr", "HDR max" and so on.

You push the button (if you insist.) We do the rest.

Well if the camera was installed under a quad-copter, it could relocate itself to right position and take a photo completely autonomously. It would recognize some keywords (eg. in wedding ceremony) and act accordingly. Where would a photographer needed anymore? :)

If you just keep Oppo's camera pointing forward when not taking selfies, you'd be fine.

Zeisschen: 100% copied design, congratulations...

The components (screen, cameras, internal circuits etc.) have become so standard, that no wonder if cellular phones look similar.
Xiaomi's price is good. Hopefully others will follow.

I would hesitate living nearby the tracks, if such traffic was heavy. :)
