On article Analog gems: 10 excellent, affordable film cameras (721 comments in total)

Olympus should be definitely added, especially the OM4, a very small rugged camera ahead of its time with multi-spot metering, highlight and shadow spotmeter setting, etc. A real gem!

Where are the surfing pictures the title promises? Oh, it's the TRIP that is documented, not the surfing, right?

Very mediocre article, DPR.

Patrick Kristiansen: A feel a few these a rather good, but most have the same look to me, a very specific "I shot this using a drone"- look , which is novel still, but I predict this look will grow old quite quickly...

Who cares whether we will get used to drone pictures (or not)? So what? They are still nice pictures.

Suits them well!

but... ' Both were sentenced to 7 days in jail, fined $2,000 and ordered to perform community service for Yellowstone Forever.'

Forever? Life long community service?

dr.noise: Why not shoot during daylight

...because that has been done before?

FantasticMrFox: Not the first time it's been done - some Nikon photographer (forgot the name) did the same for promotional pictures taken of big wall climbers with the D500:

So, it's only worth while when it's done the first time?

They're probably produced in China for a few bucks, but when they're attached to a Leica, the price tag has to be equivalent!

I would like to know how much of these 'Mark II's' are actually sold.

Now I understand why Kodak didn't make it in the digital market: worst design ever.

On article Behind the Camera: A conversation with Peter Hurley (64 comments in total)
In reply to:

Oli4D: Well I appreciate these interviews a lot. Really.

BUT why can't dpreview not at least try to keep in mind the most simple things in terms of cinematography?
I know it's a gear-head / tech site. But this does not mean the most fundamental principles of cinematography have to be ignored :/

When shooting an interview and cutting back and forth between a wide shot and a close up shot, PLEASE place the two cameras in a way that makes sense.
In this case: If Mr. Hurley sits on the left side of the frame in the wide shot and looks to the left while talking, the close up camera should also have his head framed more to the right, him looking to the left as well.
Very simple and would be much more comfortable to watch.

I really like the interview but the camera technique is really bad indeed.
I agree with all commments in this thread. On top of that, Mr. Hurley is out of focus when he leans forward. His chair is sharp though...

One more tip: switch on the microphone on the interviewer as well, and check all settings (white balance) BEFORE starting to shoot...

Come on DPR guys, You can do better than that, you're not a bunch of amateurs!

Aaron801: Not adjustable...? How cool!!!

Adding a buckle to make it adjustable would have made the strap too expensive... ;-)

In reply to:

JapanAntoine: Very nice article and spot-on!
I love how you use the title to draw more focus to the image and force the viewer to analyze it actively.
Thank you

A good picture can speak for itself, it does not need a title...

MarioV: That was awesome. Nicely captured. I assume that retardant exposure is non-toxic..

Nicely captured? He simply forgot to turn off the camera...

...videographer Eric Jensen...captured some 'incredible' footage...
So, Eric was filming and a plane spraying some water accidentally flew over him and he got wet.
What's the news? I don't get it.

Just a Photographer: All they need to do is break the price barrier by making a affordable MF system.

Come up with a 3000 to 3500 dollar MF body, that has the looks of the 500c and a few affordable lenses and sales will soar through the roof.

I think Hasselblad lost all connection with the photography world.
The money in this market is not to be made with the rich, but with the people that have a true heart for photography.

Unfortunately, their Headquarters is in Sweden...

zzzxtreme: Please continue rebadging cameras so we can have a laugh. We need a joke in the photography industry

Indeed, rebadging others' camera's doesn't do the Hasselblad brand any good... Does Hasselblad really need this, pasting a wooden grip to others' bodies?
