Raist3d: Of New York’s “underground scene.” Oh come on doreview. That’s so general.

BDSM New York scene. And a lot of homoeroticism. He was also gay himself.

it won't be: stay here

teiki arii: Hello everybody,
just look at the documentary "Mapplethorpe Look at the Pictures" the film of Fenton Bailey & Randy Barbato I watched on Arte. I am pretty sure, you like or not Robert Mapplethorpe, you should like the documentary and the meaning of his life. I am not gay, just a human being not insensitive to different artistic movements and currents that have advanced the different ways of our vision of our own human condition. If Art disturbs you, the Art have accomplished its aim.
Remember, the pictures you like today were disliked yesterday: remember "les demoiselles d'Avignon" or "Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe" de Manet causing indignation in all Europe....
Remember Lu Guang, don't forget him.
Best regards to all.

'Mapplethorpe Look at the Pictures the film of Fenton Bailey & Randy Barbato' : MUCH more like it!

I'd much rather go see that again than watch this new pitch at the masses

well that trailer was about as format as it gets.
a review states it "doesn't shy away from the hardcore bits...but neither does she capture what made the radical photographer tick."

Which is exactly what I get from the trailer. It just Looks annoying

Eons ago there was a documentary on Mapplethorpe which I saw which DID capture what made him tick. Very atmospheric, such that I still remember it decades later.

EskeRahn: In contrast to foils for say a car, these seems to be made out of a lot of flat small pieces (third photo).

So I would fear that EITHER the adhesive is not strong enough to prevent it from peeling off from the many edges and (around 75) corners under normal usage/handling. OR the adhesive is so strong, that removing the foil for a later resale could be an issue...

it would make it easier though to shoot two camera side by side when doing lens tests etc>
:p

User9362470513: "most unique"?

Something is either unique or not. It cannot be more unique or most unique.

that comment is not quite unique

hopefully this hints that an updated EF version might be in the offing - that fast AF is lustworthy

supeyugin1: No built-in flash, no 4k - no buy. Will buy Fuji XF10 instead.

I am not interested in video never mind 4K (why would I want 4K video on a compact- what am I - an undercover documentary pro that will be showing my exploits on 4K screens- ?)

Looks interesting as a carry easy unobtrusive 'street' camera

they got it right with internal IS

paul simon king: I haven't had RSI since I got a Wacom and stopped using a mouse altogether ( I tried lots of types)

that is odd Graham. I have no trouble usually but yes very occasionally it misbehaves , but its so rare as to not bother me.

As you say it might be how diligently one uses it

Hi Graham, I never had a problem with sliders in LR osr the spot removal brush...maybe a big screen helps?

On article The best lenses for Canon DSLRs (105 comments in total)
In reply to:

flight44: I am confused. I have been reading all over the internet about the Sigma 35 1.4 Art, but I'm still not sure if I get it.
Recurring themes:
- BAAAD AF performance out of the box, sometimes cannot be corrected with the dock
- AF motor dies after a few months
- Bad build quality, not sealed against anything

I really want a fast 35mm, but I cannot afford the Canon now. And I have never read this many mixed reviews. I either see AF problems or stunning image quality. Should I buy it? What is the experience of other users here?

Hi marc, I used one for a long time and I was very impressed with the colour, and the bokeh when used wide open - especially with regards to portraits is really does have something over and above other lenses in that focal length.

It may not have been the sharpest in the corners-I don't know I didn't pixel peep. I never tried it in the rain so weather sealing was never an issue. Really the colour from this lens was a cut above other lenses. Highly subjective Im sure but I would still advise flight44 to check it out.

It all depends what exactly they are looking for.

I also owned other 35mm lenses and the f1.4L impressed me whereas the others didn't . In my book that makes it a. cracker

the original 35mm L lens is a cracker

In reply to:

Greyser: Anyone knows how it compares to Skylum Luminar 2018 for Mac?

@tarauS

"totally meaningless" or just a 'bit' meaningless? That is to say I can see *some* meaning in it can you not, though I do concede it's not what you'd call clear? 'Twas an off the cuff quickly written insufficiently considered note and I agree a little clarification wouldn't go amiss, but 'totally' without meaning? I'm not convinced that's entirely accurate whether approached from either a logical or lexical semantic position.
Now if you'd said 'stoatally' meaningless I would have agreed it has to do with neither Stoat nor Weasel in toto, though a point could be stretched to the use of the idiom 'weasel see' ( as argot of 'we will see').
Perhaps I digress: consider the Lily........
