MarioV: Awesome photos.. though I feel a bit uneasy because they would needed to have been blasted with light at those narrow apertures and fast enough shutter speeds.

why ? its better to use a slower shutter speed and lower flash power which inturn stills the subject . as the flash fires faster ( 1/2000 sec)

Donald B: Was the image worth 40 k before or after the incident ?

to SC . every man and their dog is shooting this kind of image , google it and shes not wearing any makeup if you watch the vid, its PP, if you go to Olympus sight videos, a guy is at a photography convention in the US shooting similar things as a demonstration of using garbage as a prop Ive even done it 10 years ago as well on a shoot.

Any one could have taken that image. Its just a tight crop of a face . nothing more nothing less. They didnt licence I t because it was the cover of their book and was a head and shoulder shot. They onky stole 1\4 of the image :-)

GodSpeaks: Can someone explain to me how using this frankenkamera (4/3 sensor, Canon mount, requiring a phone to work) would be BETTER than just carrying a real Canon/Nikon or MFT camera? Sorry, but I just do not get it. Even Sony and Olympus could not get their offering to gain traction.

i was just thinking the same.

blacklion: RAW noise reduction? Permanent?
Ricoh, you are drunk. Go home.

It's pity, really. I can not afford full-frame, but I'm waiting for K-3 III to replace my old K-5 (first version). Now I'm afraid I better buy K-3 II.

your k5 has it as well

SteveOttwa: It worries me that DPR may be contemplating major changes to the web site. My advice is, it ain’t broke so don’t fix it. Resist the compulsion to “improve the user experience”... that scourge of software driven businesses that usually results in achieving just the opposite. If you must change some things, make sure that it is based on real statistically significant user feedback, and not some focus group or (worse) some new fangled theory of web site design.

agree, and show the image file size not the image pixel number, as people hesitate in downloading the original thinking its 16meg when in fact its only 2 .

after viewing your utbe channel, their is defiantly a life out side the box, good for you, I left work for a five year adventure when I was 27 after building a yacht and never looked back ,their is a better life than money and the poorer I was the better the fun :-) so I did it all over again with an even larger yacht. more fun though with crew M&F and sunshine even though we had some very cold ocean mornings. keep up the good work ;-)

Duncan D: I wonder how many pro shoot this type of sports with mirorrless cameras. I'm not implying that they are not capable but truly inquiring. It would be interesting to see.

it's rare to see a pro with a Nikon these days and not a Canon

any camera can spray and pray , mirrorless can do it faster so I guess you would get twice as many keepers :-)

In reply to:

Roland Karlsson: So much misunderstanding in the comments. And such lazy guys. With some practice, what he did is made very fast. Different sharpening of skin and cloth is not too advanced or unnecessary skills.

And, of course, the usual misunderstanding of the word sharp. A sharp lens has nothing to do with a sharpened image. A sharp lens has high resolution. A sharpened image has higher acutance. Resolution and acutance is not the same thing. Resolution is how small details you can resolve. Acutance is the level of amplification of high frequencies in the image. Increasing acutance do not give you more details, it only makes the details higher contrast.

Therefore you cannot get a sharper lens so you do not have to sharpen the image.

when I have my next 800 portraits to process I will send to you :-)
