Everyone knew the ending, except the Hasselblad.
That's one small step for Hasselblad, one giant leap for photography.
Mirrorless Crusader: #1: Not a wildlife photo and the horizon is tilted - terrible technique. Not to mention the choice for black and white is baseless.#2: Should be horizontally inverted in post and the photo lacks detail#3: Not a wildlife photo#4: Way overprocessed and photoshopped#5. Terribly framed. A bunch of negative space on the right and the bird chopped off on the left#6: Not enough detail, poor composition, should be horizontally inverted, and impossible to tell what's going on.#7: Not a wildlife photo#8: Not a wildlife photo, that animal is domestic as you'll ever see.
@SMPhoto "It's possible that the photographer intended it that way I supposed" and "I see a lot of complaints about the tilted horizon."Instead of responding indirectly as did, I chose to respond directly to your comment. Because I was one of those who criticized the horizon, perhaps the first of all to do . And I think we do not need to make excuses for a basic technical failure. Even more, a photo that was being judged for competition, and won. It reminds me of a Quote, that is to "make the ordinary extraordinary". Sometimes don't work. With respect to this image. For me I am not interested in the image PP, or give importance to it and supposedly was acceptable in the contest. I know the intent of my answer, but apparently does not correspond with the intention that you read. Apparently, we are both wasting your breath.Crooked horizons on photography complicate with my character as an observer. That's it.
Photo #2 (scorpion) was taken by a young boy with 9 year old. Is a fact.
The camera that "50 Cent" could use it around your neck.
$50/year for JPEG only? Please...
maxnimo: Horrible lens! Probably has plastic elements full of mold and mildew. And full of scratches too. And must be blurry all over. Probably can't even do color and has zero bokeh. Yuck!
But what if I'm wrong? What if this lens performs better than a Leica?
Will It Blend too?
The world is curved but not tilted :)
@SMPhoto, post processing is s state of art and mind, tilted horizon is a state of technical failure. Even more pictures proposals to competition and award winning! Personally if I was the jury of this photo, would not win the prize. The rules exist and can be broken, but you do need to know how break the rule with professionalism, and photo # 1 is a very amateurish mistake. Try put photos into serious contests, and you will see what I mean. no excuses for crooked horizons, even breaking the rules, and rare is the image that accepts a crooked horizon, and for that you need to do with mastery, which is not the case.Street photography and journalism is where i accept more easily the crooked horizons, due to natural causes own photographic style
I would like to see tests of this lens.
Overall nice photos. But, in my eyes, the first picture have a tilted horizon, and a composition of these is inconceivable such distraction.A technical failure ~0.4cm/0,16 inches of difference (in reduced size), which is a lot for a picture with horizon line, IMO.
People will buy this $1.800 APS-C camera body instead Nikon 610 Full Frame, just because 4FPS of difference!?Only if it is for those who already have the Canon system and want to break out their money....I'm just reading...
Never thought I'd be able to acquire photographic cameras with flavors...
I'll wait the flavors of whisky, port wine or tonic gin models.
Some good stuff here.
No SD slot... :\
Good: SSD versionBad: Price vs storage
This is the "Impossible".
Scottelly: Is this the Apple of cameras?
No, it's the Banana of cameras.
