creepy.sol: Polaroid should release a mobile printer that allows you to print from your camera or phone onto polaroid film.

Just like the Fuji instax printer

One of the reasons I like photography is that it is a hobbie and industry which has always had female participation. Countries in Asian are culturally different to Western countries. I suspect this is why this all male promotion was not picked up marketing for its lack of female photographers. In the age of the internet local marketing by global companies is seen all around the world not just in the intended market. It may have archived something though in that we are disscussing Nikon. All publicity is good publicity.

sibuzaru: OTOH Polaroid would be making a proper comeback later this week

Yes on the 13th of September is the big reveal. Hints seem to suggest a new film. I hope it is genuinely new and not just reboxed current impossible project film. Of note the impossible project store is also down until the 13th.

melgross: What the hell is wrong with guys like this? Are they so removed from the real world that they don’t see this, at least, as being dangerous to their reputation and careers?

That’s beyond the fact that this shouldn’t be done simply because it’s just demeaning, and wrong.

@melgross. If the allegations are true then your comments are well founded. The issue is getting to the truth. People make all sorts of claims and assertions which may or may not be true. In a democratic society there have to be fair process for all involved. There may be some very traumatised victims in this case either s women how has been sexually harassed or a man who has endured false allegations.

Home cloud services are attractive to people outside of the USA as many cloud companies store data on US servers. Thus your data becomes subject to US law. In industries such as health one has to find other solutions as patient information may become subject to US law. Not such a big deal for photographs true but for more serious data this is a risk.

Old Cameras: Waiting for someone to introduce a new film camera. People are living off the millions of used cameras in need of a home. It would just be an interesting sign to see a new camera introduced.

Various instax instant cameras by Fuji and the impossible I-1 instant film camera

On article Nikon D850: First full-res sample images (361 comments in total)

Any news on a new F7 film SLR with this AF system?🙃
Or a new Nikon film range finder camera with ttl and a digital companion camera ie the same camera but a film and a digital version . Like the Leica m10 and M7 are similar. Nice dream I suppose

beckmarc: I love this type of blind testing. I changed to Nikon from canon a few years ago in part because of a one of Mike's blind tests. It was not the only factor but I just kept choosing Nikon. My other favourite system based on colour is the Fuji x system.

This youtuber has done canon vs Nikon colour tests before uni the same format ie. blind testing until the end when the results are revealed. At the end of that process I found I much preferred Nikon colours to canon colours even for portraits. I then bought a Nikon D750 because of a number of factors including the results of the blind testing I had undertaken.

Portra 400 vs Fuji 400h anyone?

yellodog: Mehh. Now, if it was to be a digital Kiev 6x6 with lots of swirly bokeh lenses they would have a guaranteed hit.

I am with you!

ogl: It's unreal. No market for such camera.
The technological lagging from all photo brands is cosmic. The second serious problem is software.
We had heard such info from official persons of KMZ (Zenit plant) many times for last 12 years. Maybe it's new info for Western World, but we - Russian photo amateurs - consider it as populism.
The plant is 100% military oriented now.

@ogl I have a postive regard for the old soviet cameras. I hope you are wrong but i suspect you have the truth of it.

Link | Posted on Aug 22, 2017 at 12:47 UTC

I hope it will be M42 mount or LTM if it is a rangefinder style camera.
Now we also need a digital Kiev IIa.
Can Zeiss etc sue for copyright now the Soviet union has dissolved? Probably out of copyright as the USSR "stole" the Zeiss designs in 1945 as war reparations.

Jakub Ostrowski: Just another idiot. I meant Macron not the photographer.

Macron is most certainly not an idiot. He has come from relative obscurity to take on the establishment and win a landslide victory as an independent outside of the traditional party structure. He knew just how to stand up to Trump too. He may end up being one of Frances great leaders in history.

Lee Jay: f/352 (I think) is the tightest I used. It was a 17:1 macro. And, yes, now I know better.

At least you gave it a go. What exposure time did you use?

Bambi24: And I got attacked left and right on this site, when I said that the "Nude Photography Business" needs to be done under 100% supervision like the porn industry.

I got attacked left and right when I said that young females undressing for photographers in their own premise without supervision is a recipe for disaster.

Speaking from personal experience, I would never in my life recommend young female students to model for older male photographers without some kind of supervision.

Having a chaperon helps keep everyone safe. The women is more protected and the photographer is less likely to experience false allegations which even if unproven can tait their career.
