Christop82: Does everything have to be broken down into race and gender? Can't there just be photographers?

Ask Mait: I visited your website, watched this promo video and liked the idea. However, on your website one could barely find one or two images showing your work. If you could showcase at least twenty beautiful images, it can attract many more people to join in and support your cause.
Good luck girls !! Keep up the good work.

girls ???? ok.....

brockmo: It's great that women of color photographers are finally getting some much needed attention.

The next step is to expand diversity to include the creative perspectives of black LGBTQ and gender-fluid community, since each would enrich our understanding of diverse photography experience.

In fact, the whole "black" identity needs to be differentiated between the various income brackets since artistic interpretation from economic based realities will differ profoundly. Do you really expect an inner city gang-banger will produce the same photographs as , say, Jaden Smith? Surely not!

And what about the mixed race individuals? A person of mixed Aftican-American and white ancestry will have a different cultural perspective than someone with mixed black and asian/Native People/Eskimo/Latino/Pacific Islander/albino heritage.

While this is a good first step, DPReview needs to further improve its sensitivity training and avoid exclusion of diverse photographers in our society!

all white organizations exclude. that's just the way it is.

jamesfrmphilly: how does leica stay in business producing such crap?

in a market based on merit how do they get away with charging two or three times the price for inferior technology and ergonomics? their new offerings don't even look good.

i don't get it.

"Clearly, you don't understand the luxury goods market"

true......

jamesfrmphilly: anybody make a fast lens that is also small and light?

i'm just noting that most of the zooms introduced lately are slow.
i can no longer carry a heavy DSLR around. i need a fast lens that is also light weight. the larger sensors have a weight penalty.
my next camera will be a sony rx 100 mk3.
