    "... similar to that of a 4x5 camera"

    I subscribe to Popular Photography ... the current issue contains their annual "Readers Photo Contest" winners.

    I had to laugh when I read the comment by the grand prize winner explaining how he got the gorgeous effect shooting with his Canon EOS-1D: "Everything seemed to come together. I made three vertical images and then stitched them together, for a quality similar to that of a 4x5 camera."

    Jim, at least he was honest and used the word "similar"; for that he should be commended!

    Definition of similar: having a resemblance.

    Best to you in 2010!

    guess it could also matter how large he was printing :-)

    Did you see the second one? The seagulls and the lighthouse? Your Cup of Tea may vary, but that assuredly wasn't mine.

    I ran into that photographer two years ago near aspendell, ca. He's got chrome license plate holder with frates photography on it if I remember correctly. That image just doesn't look right to me. All my 4x5 shots have qualities similar to that of a canon eos mark whatthefuckever -1D!

    As for the second one, they oughta track down anyone who shoots lighthouses and torture them.

    I guess "Avatar" will be the biggest influence for emerging photographers these days. The "masters" will be teams of Cray-equipped drones at CGI studios.

    But shooting boat docks at sunset is just fine? Now there's an unexplored subject.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you do criticize them you'll be
    a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    I don't know... it seems to me that the bar has been lowered so much and that people actually believe this stuff. The way I see it... a high-end DSLR can only come close to, say an 8x10 contact print, if you stitch 54 1x1.5" (or whatever the ratio is) native resolution images together.

    I was pleasantly surprised to see a few people shooting film in that contest. (Let's look at things from the bright side - and let's forget the rest…)
