On article Throwback Thursday: the Nikon D80 (234 comments in total)
In reply to:

Peter Del: The D80 was my first digital camera, having come from a couple of Minolta film cameras. Then I bought an Olympus E-M5 mk1, and my back was so grateful!

No, you might just use a camera body to takes photographs, but I like to put a lens on it. The difference is noticeable.

Peiasdf, I suppose you get a kick out of being rude.

Very interesting, because I've long been under the impression that the digital camera was invented by Steven Sasson.

A sad reflection on Americans' obsession with guns.

The first three are wonderful.
I hope all the plastic is recycled!

In reply to:

Peter Del: Beautiful, sophisticated image that looks partly drawn; though I've no idea how you did that.

Thanks valenttin, the penny has dropped, noise has been added in ACR.

On article Aura is a next generation digital picture frame (74 comments in total)

I load my USB stick (£8) with jpegs and they play as a slide show on my 32" TV. It has the same problem as this frame, it is rectangular, not all photos are landscape. They should have made it square, so that all pictures, whether landscape or portrait, are the same size!

Magical, quite magical

It seems to me that if it includes an original Oska Barnack camera, then the estimate is very low indeed.

It seems, from the bottom left hand corner of photo no.4, that they will have a selection of oval lenses!

In reply to:

Stereodesign: No.4 definitely looks wrong, like overexposed flash; a Google for C.E.N.S.U.R.A. Julián Barón takes you to the website with the explanation:
"In that big circus that politics is, photography and censorship are allied to each other in order to manipulate people through the false use of image as a document, using large mass media to subtly but constantly mask those aspects that do not respond to the claims of the parties, blurring and distorting reality.

However, by focusing on a different way on politics and its leaders, trying to use the camera in decomposition, it is also possible to make photography censor censorship and then, negative against negative, offer something positive, some new perspectives on politicians and their superficial status, revealing how the state they defend so hardly vanishes by their actions, their images and all the paraphernalia that surrounds the ivory tower in which they believe they live in."

So now we know.

No.4
Take a rubbish image and justify it with a long, meaningless explanation. A common practice.

I tried the free trial to change the sky. I thought it was rather good, but you can only use, say, the night sky or midday sky once, because if it appears in more than one photo, Camera Club Members will notice!!!

I prefer the original, less stressful for my old eyes.
