Martin JC: Regardless of our views, based necessarily on incomplete information, one might recall the maxim: "ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat"

ImageAmateur - You are exactly right. And this is why the police are now involved.

Scottelly: I read about Terry Richardson about ten years ago, and back then this was old news. He has basically admitted to taking advantage of his position of power over young, female models, and sexually exploiting them. The guy gets naked when shooting photos of them sometimes, for Christ's sake! Apparently he's hung like a horse and gets positive results because of it sometimes. For whatever reason the industry has given him a pass for decades. It's hard to believe. I can't believe he wasn't sued by a model and prosecuted by the police long ago. Maybe it's all a publicity stunt.

StevenE - I suggest you read up on this guy. This is only a revelation to folks who know nothing about fashion photography. The allegations have been dropping for at least 15 years. That's not to say that they are automatically to be believed but to suggest that folks are trying to "cash in" is either naive or defamatory.

HarryLally: Has DPR gone all tabloid? I thought this was a photography gear site so Amazon could increase its sales of cameras and lenses.

That's right. DPR shouldn't report anything to do with photographers.

No, it appears to be the new DPReview left-wing venue for politics, the old Off Topic forum gone, for 'bad behaviour.' When back?

Dude - seriously?

Suppose a well-known photographer won the Pulitzer Prize. Would you be offended if DPR posted that?

captura identifies with sexual assaulters.

Exactly. The dude is a long time freak/douche.

If you believe that bullsh!t then he's been the sacrificial photographer for over 5 years.

This is from 2014 and details a history going back to 2001. Maybe you don't follow fashion, or avant garde photography, but this dude's behavior is not new.

bwahahahahahahaha Other than your interjection, where is the politics?

The dude is/was a major photographer.

Do you know how life works?

Never put a band-aid on a hemorrhoid.

Reilly Diefenbach: Jesus Christ what a bunch of whiners. You don't like the subscription, don't subscribe. Simple.

Yes. I've never liked the subscription model and glad I never went there. That being said, I feel sorry for folks who did. I recently had to migrate from Apple's Aperture and that was painful enough...

tabloid: Im not a 'follower' of iPhone, I simply use iPhones because i uses a mac computer, and it makes syncing just that much easier.
As for upgrading from my 6.......hmmm I don't think so.
I suspect that a lot of people might migrate from other brands just to see what all the fuss is about.
But there is no doubt its a great bit of engineering. (just like other brands).

I concur. I was in Europe for work most of the year and needed another phone. I got a iPhone SE and will be switching to that, from the 6S Plus, in 3 weeks.

I don't do much on my phone so all the fancy tech is lost on me.

Right. Just like the world - colorless. Morons.

On article Close-up: Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 (127 comments in total)

I'm not familiar with the Panasonic cameras so...

- I thought the point of M43 was "smaller". This camera seems absolutely huge compared to APS-C mirrorless cameras. Are the lenses significantly smaller?
- Is this primarily a video camera?

Zakzoezie: Of the 100 persons during the announcement in the press room, 1 discreet man (A mount owner) applauded and was totally excited, while the other 99 alpha men (E mount owners) were totally freezing movement while watching with big eyes and mouth wide open. That's why Sony called it the Alpha 99 ...

camera for the 1%

On article Throwback Thursday: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F707 (141 comments in total)

Loved this and the follow-up F717. From the Minolta 800si and 7, Sony's F717 took me into digital. Loved the ergonomics and the IQ (except for blown-out reds).

In reply to:

Henry McA: Not really nifty that fifty. But to whom it concerns, perhaps worth a look. I´d rather take the Canon 50 1.4 or Sigma 50 1.4 (if I was into sharpness & stuff).

Canon's 50/1.2 is nice but the the 50/1.4... disappointing.

D135ima: Sony continues to compete with DSLRs. Its good... maybe. But many users want mirrorless cameras with compact optic. Dear Sony - Please do not forget to compete with APS-C mirrorless systems. People want more lenses like 35 2.8 and 28 2 and even much smaller

Compact optics only works with wide–to–normal lenses. The shortcuts to smaller telephotos are diffraction/fresnel optics.

bfrankpoto: This is going to sound mean, but I don't care about film simulation. I can't imagine many professionals using that on a regular basis. I would love to hear if this is something that could realistically be considered as a replacement for dSLR gear. The viewfinder issue is troubling. Sounds like using a 70-200 equivalent may not work very well.

Do your research.

On article Primer: Why would I buy a mirrorless camera? (563 comments in total)
In reply to:

fedway: For anyone who's become a photo enthusiast/hobbyist only over the last 5 years or so, without any legacy habits or equipment, the question is why a dslr? It seems the only reasons are: if you need AF in continuous shooting mode to track objects fast moving longitudinally or erratically, single battery life and ovf. And of course, a whole slew of budget AF lenses.

I would also add physical robustness. Whether that's ergonomics – for those of us with large hands – or the bullet-proof build of cameras like the 7D. (I hope Sony and Fuji put a bit more attention into these aspects.)
