Prophecies: Unbelievably disappointed that they picked Number 9 as a winner. That is the most overshot image you can find on Instagram you search the lofoten/Norway hashtags. Seriously, I have seen this exact photo hundreds of times.

This is one of the many reasons I find photo contests repulsive.

...didn't do what?

Everybody has a right to their opinion.

rico7578: This contest is the kingdom of Photoshoped images it seems ! (images stitched in the texan bar, Lofoten cabin removed, german swimmers added juxtaposed...)
Is it really a photo contests or more an "image" (or digital creation) contest ?
Definitively not World Press Photo ethics (or even nature photo contests, such as BBC Wildlife or European GDT).
Not really my taste... (I'm more a analog guys these days !)

Apparently, post-processed images were not excluded from the contest. So as you rightfully conclude: an image contest. I find the photography of a high standard and inspiring and the term 'digital creation' a bit far fetched.

Adam Sharp: Really ... Nikon flash units are the best possibly Canon should learn from Nikon .

So, Nikon already had this feature on their flashes?

stevo23: Not sure which derogatory word it deserves most. Dumb? Silly?

arqomx: I need a sturdy backpack for carrying my camera whilst mountain biking.. does this new bag fit the bill?

...not sure. Can you also open this thing and actually put things in it?

...would have been nice to see the inside as well, I mean; that is the basic function of a 'bag' - to store and transport things in? Instead we get a view of the outside of this 'portable charging unit'. Missed opportunity if you ask me.

If it would be my camera, I would be a bit careful when taking off the lens and exposing the sensor to incoming rain drops, however small. Obviously a demo model to be returned to the factory... ;-)

elsen029: Very creative work, great engineering and nice results. I just remain with one question after seeing the video's: why?

...that's a bit too easy for me digital.

goactive: Some of the worst photos for quality I have seen in a long time. Very noisy, very poor color and just a look bad.

Complete nonsense. Fabulous quality for a 1" sensor.

Still waiting for the technical test of this one, DPR!

Very nice series, atmosphere nicely captured. Its only a pity that DPR visitors are not allowed to appreciate the full resolution of not even one single picture... Too bad DPR!

..at f/2.8 focussing becomes critical; the veil behind the bride is sharp, the bride is not..

...they might even believe the explanation they are giving themselves, seen the fact that they are slicing up a perfectly OK, $ 300 lens...

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.
