On article Flickr reveals its top 25 photos of 2016 (190 comments in total)

Interesting that they are all landscapes. No street photography, no portraits.

On a different topic... the captions are repetitive and overlaid over the images. Sloppy.

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85/G80 Review (682 comments in total)
In reply to:

Betico: These Chinese manufactures are now as good, if not better, than their Japanese competitors. One simple example:
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85/G80 is as good as the Fujifilm X-T2, but it costs almost half of the price.

And the Japanese cameras used to be "almost as good" as the German ones.

The times they are a-changin', to quote a recent Nobel Prize winner back in 1964, the year of the Praktica V SLR. You all remember that one of course?

Chris Noble: Subwavelength coatings have been known for many years and are widely used in the optics industry.

The article suggests that Canon's coating is somehow new or a factor in the use of these particular compound "cheap" lenses to replace a single larger optical assembly. That is not the case.

In reply to:

John Bean (UK): Adams wrote a lot about the importance of visualization but never once used the term PRE-visualization, a term used often by others when discussing him.

We're stuck with it now but it still irritates at some level.

From Merriam-Webster:

1: formation of mental visual images
2: the act or process of interpreting in visual terms or of putting into visible form

That definition seems to fit Adams' mefhods and doesn't need a PRE- ;-)

Pre-visualization = mental image before going out on the shoot. Visualization = mental image during the shoot.

What's so complicated?

On article PRVKE 21 is a rugged and versatile camera backpack (35 comments in total)

These Kickstarter campaigns, combined with flexible Asian contract manufacturers, have created an interesting new way of launching new products. (And I still like my cargo shorts).

Do some of the posters below realize that this is about photographic emulsion paper (i.e. exposed and developed), not about the paper that you run through your inkjet printer?

In reply to:

Chris Noble: These two photos are clearly a stride apart, not shot at "nearly identical" times as your writer suggests. You can see that the runner in blue in the back has moved significantly relative to the pack.

I've changed my opinion. The Getty Images photo is taken just slightly earlier, and from a more advanced position, but during the same stride. The background shift is too short for a full stride, and the different angle explains the difference in relative runner position. Bolt's expression is also too constant to be maintained for a full stride. The Reuter's photo is a better shot.

In reply to:

Mark Eberts: who are the people who like such a picture?

The same people who like the Impressionist painters. Critics of HDR because "it does not look real" have the same artistic mindset as the critics of Impressionism did a hundred years ago. There are good and bad HDR photos, but a photo is not necessarily bad because it does not conform with your view of the world; nor is it necessarily good because it does.

What does "launch" mean, when the product will only be available "some time in 2017"? Very misleading title.

I hope DPR runs an update when the court rules.

Another DPReview piece of product advertising masquerading as a news story, this time with "Comments" from distributor "AriFLM". And not a single product feature that you can't find in other, less expensive competitors.

Thrilling. Like you were there.

Chaitanya S: A very clean layout compared to Fuji but too many screws compared to few other cameras that were torn down before.

Too many screws? I'd worry if there were too few.

moranjr: "The body has no traditional red dot as Leica says it wants the camera to be discrete..."
Discretion is important. In fact I am going to leave mine at the Leica factory so no one knows I own it.

If you can't spell discreet, should you be shooting with such an expensive camera?

Link | Posted on Apr 29, 2016 at 11:03 UTC

I would never buy such a camera even if I could afford it, but I admire Leica for staying true to its brand. The photography world would be poorer without them. Bravo.
