tesch: I don't come to this website very often but when I do I find all of the talk is about why Sony isn't a real camera. Very strange!

This is a good article about a lot of things that really have no effect on the images taken by people on this site. If the photographers on this site spent as much time researching composition and color theory they wouldn't have to worry about this nonsense. But that would mean they would have to think which seems to be an issue..........

Get over it!

A musician doesn't have to think about music theory while he's playing because he's taken the time to study and practice what he learned. Wow! Are you that wrapped up in your gear that you can't understand that? I feel sorry for you.........and your sad little test charts!

Don't you guys have some charts to take pictures of?

On article Sony launches αUniverse online content platform (21 comments in total)

Glad to see Sony get into the game of promoting Sony photographers. All of the other major brands have their shooters as well so with Sony's push into the pro arena they really did need to do this. I don't agree with all of their choices but it's not for me to judge. Not really sure if I would call a blogger an actual Artisan.

On article The travel photography of HDR guru Trey Ratcliff (233 comments in total)
In reply to:

kaiser soze: I don't like the fact that he has effectively stolen the acronym HDR, using it as a label for his creations that have little if anything to do with HDR per se. People who don't like this criticism prove the point, because as a rule, they don't know what HDR means. It means taking multiple exposures and combining them into a single image FOR THE EXPRESS PURPOSE OF OVERCOMING THE SENSOR's DYNAMIC RANGE LIMITS. That's what HDR means, no more and no less. Only when truth is stretched to the breaking point does Ratcliff's work have anything to do with HDR in the true sense. But he insists on calling it HDR, and the only reason he does is that HDR was getting a lot of attention and this provided a way for him to get a lot of attention, by associating his work with HDR. This is the plain truth of the matter, and to my way of thinking it is a very strange thing for anyone to do. He needs to stop calling it HDR, and find some other label. His work is NOT HDR photography.

You are totally right. An HDR images is actually a 32bit image made from multiple exposures. It doesn't look good on computer screens so it has to be processed. The act of converting that image to an 8 bit image to be viewed on a computer screen is called tonemapping which is what Ratcliff is actually calling HDR.

Ratcliff has given HDR a black eye with his over-processed look He doesn't have an Art Education so I can't fault him for not knowing what he did. But this confusion between a tonemapped image and a HDR is inexcusable. Being a technical person he should have known the difference.

Too many hands in the till, you can't make money with blurb books now because blurb sucks down all of the profits. How's amazon going to make that any better.

So they gave it a bad review. What did you expect? It doesn't mean your pictures suck.

When Canon creates a sensor with built in phase detection it's considered revolutionary. But when Sony does it, like on the A99, it's just another gimmick. All hail Canon!

No place to strap skis, board or snowshoes. People who design these outdoor packs need to go outside. There's more to being in the backcountry than carrying your camera gear. I'll pass!

In reply to:

aardvark7: For heaven's sake do samples need such comments?

It would seem that opinons of them vary from being fabulous to downright awful, yet all the while 'my' opinion of samples should not have the remotest effect on 'your' decision to buy (and vice versa).

I get the distinct impression it is more about a combination of 'fanboys' and ego: praising or castigating the camera simply because of the manufacturer, and being derogatory of the pictures because 'I'm a fabulous and knowledgeable photographer who would do so much better...' !!!

I don't know about the 'voting thumbs', I think DPR should bin the comments section!

Thanks for the smile!

tesch: I love to see people complain about too many mega pixels.....shows their ignorance.

Before you even use the camera and evaluate the shots for yourself, you pan the camera for being crappy because of the high MP, yes that is being ignorant.

Ignorant: 1. lacking in knowledge or education; unenlightened
2. lacking in awareness or knowledge (of): ignorant of the law
3. resulting from or showing lack of knowledge or awareness: an ignorant remark
