More important than equipment, is the moment.
"Made in Korea" North or South?
For $64 USD I don't complain.
Digitall: The contest juris were undecided up to penultimate round? Please, very strange that action, and providing a false expectation to selected photographers. It was not a politically correct action. I doubt that the rules were clear.
Must be forgotten the controversy winning photograph of world press photo by Paul Hansen on 2013:
When I said that would be a known situation right from the beginning, is to the effect that when we have a picture in hand, and who is used to dealing with photography at this level, I assume you know minimally if the image is or is not "overly" manipulated to have a continuity in the competition. imo
Your point of view may also be valid. Never will know. But I still think that one should not get that far with these image that were disqualified by the high PP. After all it was a situation known from the beginning.

davepanorama: I just see a huge amount of noise even at iso 400, seems quite wrong to me.
thirty-thousand-dollar cinema camera, with a external antenna like a 90's cellular phones? Cmon, we are on 21th century Alexa!
To be honest, I think the photos presented here are far from the quality that this(or other) camera produces. As photographs to demonstrate the ability of a camera, leave much to be desired. The post processing is exaggerated. For presentation of images from the camera for a test, they shall be as simple and basic possible, without resorting to large corrections. Again, images should contain no more than the basic corrections. Not expected a demonstration of skills in image processors. Keep it simple, It's the way most people expect to see images from a camera test. At least me. IMO
And soon we will hear the Sony audio business will go on sale. Are only predictions...
I have some filters Marumi, and price are good, and quality above expectations. But for now are worth the money they cost. If one day some fame makes them up the price, probably cease to be interesting.
1 more point for the MFT system, well done.
Biowizard: Good to see the firmware updates continuing into a new version. I wonder whether they will add a 40mp "high res" mode at some point, to avoid the E-M1 being eclipsed by the E-M5 II? The physical hardware should support it ...
I think technically possible, and really hope that Olympus do. In addition to the Olympus E-M1 is still be the flag model.
Rockaw: Can we please have the red/yellow peaking options in the new firmware?
Since the beginning, I pray that the Olympus put these colors for focus peaking, it costs nothing, I think is clearly a lack of will from Olympus, or they do not read some customers' requirements. Let's wait..., again.
This will be the "Impossible" for the Canon, that have promoted a few months ago?
I had it.:-)
It will be possible that Olympus put on E-M1 the 40 MP multi-exposure mode, and 1080/60 on next update? I believe yes.
I predict that there will be many dogs and cats stuck in someone's forehead, or elsewhere in the body. In addition to pizzas, starbucks coffee, tongue out and fingers spread too.
ManuelVilardeMacedo: I don't know what's dumber - having your body tatooed with Instagram snaps or buying a product named 'Picattoo.'
Flare gives the image a retro style, very popular these days, hence the Nikon have included this type of effect in his latest model, for free.
I pay $300 for one. Anyone want sell me one of this?
