Oh! If I can say that I truly loved one camera, the A700 would be it!

I was more or less an early adopter as well. Few months after its release my (by then) girlfriend's sister was in Japan and I couldn't lose the opportunity to ask her to get me the A700.
(if I was to wait it to be released in Brazil, it'd takes ages and cost me a hell lot more)

The fun thing is that Sony chose, for their domestic japanese market, offer a camera that had JAPANESE ONLY menus! No way to change it!

Yeah, I'm not Japanese myself, nor speak Japanese. I had to download the camera's manual in English and then learn where the basic settings were!

Right after I got the camera in my hands I rushed to buy a Minolta 'nifty-fifty' and the LEGENDARY Beercan!! (a lens that Sony stubbornly never released an updated version...)

It was a joy and fun camera to use!

Unfortunatelly it got stolen on a bus trip... :(

I miss it very much!

NickyB66: If it had been me with my 300mm Fujinon telephoto the officer would have thought it was a Bazooka aimed at him!

Now lenses must have orange tips like fake guns!

neo_nights: Nice. But why is it always Canon? :(

@chshooter - yes, I know why. And I would care about having some Pentax or Sony "lenses". Even Olympus or Leica. Anything different from Canon (mostly) and some Nikon.

I know, I know. Market. Canon is most known. Still... why?
:(

*A LOT* of retouching!!

I wonder if the "light box" made any difference at all

Wow. A Canon camera that did not get an award! Was it a first?

For those trying to make this into something it isn't.
Here is Mr. Slater in his own words. He had NO creative intent. The monkeys played with the camera and randomness ensued.
So all those turning this into "Mr Slater clearly setup the camera in the best manner and directed the monkeys" need to step off the crazy train.

But he left the camera there, on purpose, so the monkeys could play with it, right?

Boky: He should've told everyone right from the beginning that HE pressed the shutter... problem solved.

@Boky - and the picture wouldn't have had the same effect. Because it's not only about the picture, but the story behind it.

How he could've known all of this hell would've happened? Now he (and everyone else) knows.

I'm not blaming the photographer (quite the opposite, I think he's done the right thing), but I've just started wondering: if he just had let that case go, even though he wouldn't get a lot of money via copyrights of that specific picture, he would have continued his life and earned money with his other photographies and wouldn't be broke now. Right?

cosinaphile: what person in his right mind does not already understand that the cell phone, with its lifetime for many users of 12to24 months, is already the closest thing consumers use to a disposable camera

the difference is, of course, a price tag of 649 to 969

On article 2017 iPhone Photography Award Winners Announced (185 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tom Goodman: Putting aside the actual images for a moment , this award reminds me of a photographer friend who once said "There is an award for everything."

I have never looked at a photograph I've admired and wondered about the equipment. Never. Nor do I look at a painting and ask myself, "Did the painter use acrylics or oils?" I just don't care. I know some types of equipment make certain kinds of images possible or better, but when an image attracts me I don't care how it was realized.

So many contests carry entry fees which is part of what inspires so many competitions. They are profitable or, at the very least, most if not all of their costs are covered and the resultant advertisement in some cases, the iPhone in this one, is striking.

@Tom @ Woodyz - I think you're both right.
Sometimes you want to just enjoy that piece of art (or food, or anything that gives you pleasure), just "feel" it.

OTOH, there are times, of course, when you are interested in the technical aspect so you can use on your own photography (or paint, or food, or music or whatever).

It really depends on what/when you look at something and how you want to react to it.

Well... I've always wanted to have a Gitzo tripod. Maybe now it's a good time?

Do you think it will come with a smartphone adapter as well?
:p

He called it "gadget" so people will take it as an offense. Don't have to worry about someone saying nice things here!

Inspired Shot: I like it. There's no need to hate it. Of course you can do this manually, but what's wrong with having this tool available?

I think mmx was being sarcastic...

stratplaya: If that camera got Barney a date, then the a9 (by all raving accounts) will get me a permanent mistress.

Ironically, for those who are married, buying a camera such as the A9 (or any other PRO level) may cause a divorce! Hahahaha!

Link | Posted on May 4, 2017 at 15:42 UTC

I'm with those who read the entire article just to know more about the date.

C'mon, Barney!!

How come this TBT is not about the Sony A9?
Hahahahaha!

Just teasing you, guys. Actually I don't feel bothered about the amount of attention the A9's been getting. I'm just trolling those who DO feel bothered about it!
:p

(BTW, this Minolta camera is very similar to the Sony T series)

In reply to:

TillmanB: I've been enjoying the throwback Thursday pieces and generally rebuff those who bristle that it's too far off topic, but c'mon. This is about a game that some millennials played in the 90's where instead of shooting the little bastards you're photographing them. Lame.

Don't worry. There's always next week!
