Mike FL: If you want make a $700 iPhone only worth $7, go for it.

Wait it is not even worth $7 as this thing is not even a KODAK, but GUDAK. Why not make it KQDAK (Q not O).

"something a parent can do with a child"

That's actually not a bad idea. Thank you for taking possibly longer than 99c worth of your time to post that comment.

On article Sony a9 banding issue: fact or fiction? (733 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marco Paci: I own a sony A7II and I owned a A7RII. Lenses are very good but cameras are toys. If you use electronic shutter you got banding if you use a mechanical shutter you got a terrible blur. Don't speak about autofocus which is nothing comparable to serious Canon or Nikon camera. Simply don't buy Sony camera for some years, they are not mature cameras and they are only low end consumer cameras.

"Then why the question??"

It wasn't a question to you. It was a rhetorical question to the non-trolls of the DPR community. You wouldn't understand.

Nothing you've said here (or how you've said it) makes me want to read more.

"webber15 has not uploaded any photos to their gallery yet"

Why is this always the case?

You are doing it wrong.

Slaginfected: Thanks for the article. I wonder if we'd seen any of that with a readout speed of exactly 1/180s. These LED ad-banners are synced in a way that you can use them for TV broadcast (60Hz) without getting any flicker, and they are speedy enough that you won't see any flicker with high speed cameras for slow-mo replays. 7700Hz seems to be somewhat excessive, though, but it certainly is somewhere in the kHz range.

"He shot at 1/4000"

"readout speed of exactly 1/180s"

shutter speed != readout speed

In reply to:

polishpunk68: The amount of comments complaining that this article got posted is appalling. Photography is self expression of showing the world as you see it. People from different backgrounds and cultures will have a different perspective and it is worthwhile to see and read about it. It is very relevant in the realm of photography.

Not recognizing a photographers gender or heritage is ignorance.

No, it's a collection of photographs by black women. You are placing the value or lack thereof.

graybalanced: Some of these comments remind me of when someone tweets "Why do we have a Black History Month? Why don't we get to have a White History Month?"

The answer, of course, is obvious to everyone else, but since it isn't obvious to the clueless tweeter, it's spelled out for them in 200 replies from people saying "Because every month IS ALREADY White History Month!!!"

Same principle applies here.

I see no problem with this article, and I would find it as interesting as an article on cowboy photographers or Eskimo photographers. Heck, I'd like to see an article on actual Cuban photographers, as a counterpoint to the trendy thing today where so many Americans etc. want to go to Cuba and photograph how it is before all the American etc. visitors ruin all the original charm :)

But you aren't about "unconfining" at all. You are about forgetting and ignoring. Stop pretending anything else.

Confining is your word. When people learn things in February, do they forget them in March? When people learn to value things in February, do they not value them the next month?

"A "coloured only" month"

That's not what it is. At all. In any way.

DarnGoodPhotos: At its core, art is supposed to provoke reactions and discussion. Regardless of what you think of the various comments posted, these women certainly have done that.

"I didn't even look at them."

Good for you.

quietrich: "Data gathered from the Met's public collections in 1989 showed that women artists had produced less than 5% of the works in the Modern Art Department, while 85% of the nudes were female."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guerrilla_Girls

Anyone interested in the predisposition of the art establishment towards white male artists, would do well to research the Guerrilla Girls, who have worked since 1985 to encourage galleries and museums to address these prejudices.

"Assuming it is prejudice"

Not sure the blue-eyed guy with 9 portfolios full of only pictures of white men is really the one to judge whether something is prejudice.

Scottelly: I think it's shameful that you've chosen to do an article based on race. It seems so racist to me. I can't imagine you'd ever dream of doing an article based on white women photographers, would you?

" I can't imagine you'd ever dream of doing an article based on white women photographers, would you?"

They have, for decades. Just they titled the article "Women Photographers". It was the same thing though.

Better than them being forgotten altogether. Also, not everyone goes to the same sites that you do.

I feel like the photo would be more creepy if they were taking photos of it when no-one was there.

EcoR1: Any DSLR owner should feel a bit envy. This lens a great example of optical design that you can't ever have with DSLR-mounts. Because the length of the optical design is so short, it's physically impossible to retrofit the lens for DSLRs even if the mirror is removed.

That's what we thought about the RX100 MKI, MKII, MKIII, and MKIV. :-)

I am, I am hilarious. If you don't think the A7 II is a different size entirely than the A7 then you've never held them both. The body is also deeper, to accommodate the IBIS, plus it's heavier. I know, I have the A7 II and have had an A7. Have you?
