Very unimpressive images.

AbrasiveReducer: They weren't that great in '58 so I'd be wary of getting one with too much "unique character" but these will likely turn up on eBay at very good prices.

Prices on eBay have already shot up.

Hungary? That is something else. The images above are from Romania.

I do wish this came in black.

I save my DSLR for commercial jobs. Bought a Ricoh GR recently. For what I like and do - perfect!

In reply to:

absentaneous: 12 images taken by 12 different people yet they all look the same as if they were all taken by the same person. what does that tell you? well, we have a great example of a photographic cliche or fetish.

of course it's up to a person's taste but personally I don't really like such pictures that are trying to be "artistic" but end up being nothing more than cliches that actually spoil the actual beauty of the place. these places are beautiful as they are. no need to "tweak" their beauty any further because it's counterproductive.

Whoa, at first I didn't realize they were taken by different people. I was just looking at the images and wondered at their similarity.

The perfect camera is the one I am holding at the moment.

PhotoKhan: I feel like throwing up...

How can an outfit make something self-destructive like this and not actually press the "Yeah...? So Now Take Warp Speed" button in people's consciences, by having them immediately stop buying any kind of product "restructurors" like these may still want to publish?

Are we all THAT dormant?

(...and, please, don't come up with the "That would only mean reporters would go next" argument because...well...they WILL go next, anyway...)

...As for the project, kudos to Rob Hart for keeping being creative in such a challenging moment in his life and for having the good spirit to ironically prove to me, for the first time, that, yes, mobile photography CAN be significant.

A photography website recently did a poll on how many of its readers had formal, little, or no training whatsoever in photography. Guess which category came out on top?

justmeMN: In the USA, one difference between the Ricoh GR and the Nikon Coolpix A, is that the latter is made by a camera company that people have heard of. Pentax is now a lesser known brand, but at least some of us still remember it.

Pentax ,Asahi, has was founded in 1919. Ricoh bought controlling shares of Pentax in 2011.

facedodge: These are all great tips if you want to be like William Klein... I think the real lesson of William Klein is to not try and be William Klein. I think Eric missed this point.

Number three is "go against the grain". I don't think William cared which way the grain went. He went his way and that was that. Following Eric's advise on to go against the grain precludes needing to know which way is with and which way is against.

Find your vision and have the courage to develop it regardless of direction of grain. William Klein did so and we can too.

Klein's work has more to do with the "gut", the feel of what you see. Klein had to deal with the limitations of the technology back then - slow film, slow wide-angle lenses, lenses that did not focus very close. When you look back - Klein, Frank, Faurer, were all contemporaries pushing the boundaries of what was considered acceptable.

Jordan Norris: I don't get it, the sky in the first photos looks equally "exciting". Some simple lightroom/darkroom work on the first photo would do the trick. Doesn't seem like photography to me, seems more like arts and crafts.

Nice to see you here Jean!

On article Ethics of prize-winning photo debated (151 comments in total)

This just substantiates my belief that "contests" are extremely flawed, if not somewhat "rigged". The photographer could have, and should have checked the facts when he new his image was in the final stages of "judgement".

In this instance, content and context cannot or should not be separated.

WASBA: Personally, For the balance, pancake lens is only good for mobility. I used a Pentax 40mm pancake lens before and I just noticed that is too thin... Even for one-hand shooter, most of mirrorless camera's body is very compact so hard to handle by one hand. :D

"Even for one-hand shooter, most of mirrorless camera's body is very compact so hard to handle by one hand."

Kind of find that hard to believe, unless you have the hands of a gorilla. I've been using a Panasonic G1, GF1, and G3 with great results. The pancake lenses couldn't be small enough!

Keith: I wish Richard would make something like this for the Leica M8/9.

I have. He won't make one unless there is a lot of interest. I hardly think it would be a bust. It would be nice to have an alternative, something less expensive and bulky then the Leitz grip.
