Looks like a good product. Shame it's for Windows.

MikeStern: It’s understandable. A7iii announcement and quick release freaked out not only Fuji. Nobody has a “basic model” camera of theirs can keep up with a7iii.
PanicFuji over cooked their pie and burned it. Expectedly.

Yikes. I suppose if I was really insecure about my Xt2 and suffered from mild paranoia I might buzz the Sony threads as a method of compensation.
...that is, I can only imagine...

Another interesting article with some great shots by someone who's actually out there doing something interesting.

Another forum for disgruntled and bitter DPR members to whine and bark in manner one would normally expect from a petulant toddler.

"I coulda been a contender..." Derp.

Wubslin: Did those people you photogaphed give their permission?

And did they give their permission for their image to be published on the internet?

Human exchanges of note. An example:

Q: Do you have a licence to drive that car?

A: Yes.

Q: I'm not going to argue the point with you any more.

In reply to:

bed bug: There are some terrific shots there! My personal favourites are 9 (windmills) and 11 (ducks), images I had not seen before. I do not understand why 8 is there, very silly.

Personally, I don't mind 8.
But 14? Landscape?

Wow. Some really bitter responses here. Always a shame to see a lack of personal recognition manifest itself as snakiness.

Personally, I think #2 is brilliant. Though I'm more of a Bill Henson "fan" myself.

wh13: post a NSFW besides Emma Gruner's link

i was lucky no one in my office looked at my screen when i clicked it... now i need to see if i get flagged by corporate IT

I only clicked on it because it had "NSFW" beside her name.
I assumed it was some kind of degree.

Mike FL: "The Phenomenon is fixed". Phenomenon??

I thought FUJI is a master for only inflating the ISO just liking my Olympus, but now is good at inflating the wording too.

What a "Phenomenon".

Erm, and it's a noun. Not an adjective.

Phenomenon: a fact, occurrence, or circumstance observed or observable.

It's your own limited definition is at fault here. The application of the word is just fine.

Xeexon: It's refreshing to see a return to portraying photography as what it is: an artistic medium.

@ forpetesake
It's fine to not enjoy other peoples work. And I suppose its fine to denigrate it as well. But perhaps you could attempt to do it without sounding so bitter? Great gallery, btw.

It's just a tad....contrived? I mean, a lot of portraiture is, of course. But this appears to be slightly laboured.

HowaboutRAW: But, for example, I'm not interested in jpegs from the Olympus TG-4.

I want to download raws, shot outdoors, with that tough camera.

Don't want jpegs from a Sony A7RII either.

Both Imaging-Resource and Photographyblog post real world raws for download, why is it so unusual for DPR to do so?

That would require a modicum of grace.
A rare commodity around here for some.

Ron Poelman: Those furrowed brows were only a small indicator of the tsunamis
raging within trying to find ways to twist it all to political advantage.
The lack of real emotion only confirms what the mug punters
have known all along, they DON'T care.

"This site is about photography - recording images of the blessings of our beautiful world."

Is that what photography is?

Or in this case - photojournalism?

Paul Farace: Another reason my telescope is collecting dust in the closet. I remember looking at the moon on the summer nights in 1969 and thinking that for now, it's a virgin moon, and if, God willing, our Astronauts were successful in a few weeks, the moon would forever be changed. I wish NASA could bottle that excitement from that long ago summer, and use it today.

"I saw a documentary film that clearly shows that the entire American moon landing was a colossal hoax."

I saw a documentary film that proves that 9/11 was a hoax designed to distract us from our real enemy - bigfoot.

Pretty obvious when you think about it...

Frank_BR: A positive point of Lomo lenses is that when someone buys a Lomo lens, he need not worry about whether it is within specifications or he got a bad sample. In practice, it is all the same.

Seriously. Why do you bother?
