Diseases That Plague Photographers

Diseases That Plague Photographers | Photography Gear News | Scoop.it

"Photography is an art meant to invigorate our creative side and facilitate our ability to see our world in new and interesting ways. Many books, articles, tutorials, and blogs focus on various aspects of the artistic and technical merits of photography. Rarely discussed, however, are some of the strange maladies that afflict photographers. There are the occasional whispers and, “Did you hear about Joe?” types of exchanges, but all too often, such problems are rarely acknowledged and dealt with openly.
In an effort to bring such diseases to light, Dr. E.X. Posur, a leading psychiatrist that specializes in treating photographers, highlights a number of common illnesses he has encountered, and their associated symptoms and treatment. Although described individually, they are all part of a common illness labeled “photographus excessivitis”. Rarely will a photographer exhibit symptoms a single disease. Close examination almost always reveals multiple afflictions..."

Camera Lenses with Custom Paint Jobs

Camera Lenses with Custom Paint Jobs | Photography Gear News | Scoop.it

"A week ago we published a tongue-in-cheek post on how to improve the quality of your Canon kit lens by painting a red ring around it. While that wasn’t intended to be taken seriously, we were pointed to a Korean workshop named Park in Style that actually takes custom lens body work quite seriously. What you see above is a Canon 18-55mm kit lens that they disassembled, painted, and then reassembled to look like a Canon L lens!"

TIPA awards…as usual everybody wins :)

"I always find these TIPA awards a bit…strange (Click here to see them). As usual every company wins at least one price. They created so many categories that is is almost impossible to not win something

Look at the four(!) mirrorless categories:
Best CSC Entry Level (Olympus PEN E-PL3)
Best CSC Advanced (Panasonic LUMIX GX1)
Best CSC Expert (Sony Alpha NEX-7)
Best CSC Professional (Fujifilm X-Pro1)

Didn’t know a camera can be for “advanced” users, or “expert” users or “professional” users. Somebody can lighten me up the difference?"

Say Whhaaat?

"Camera and lens manufacturers employ teams of professionals to write their copy, and others to edit it dozens of times. At least you would think they did. But what they actually publish is often a combination of market-speak, outright lies, and sometimes just oddly puzzling (and often funny) gibberish. Here’s a few claims that I’ve run across in the last few days, all taken from the manufactuer’s websites. (They’ll edit them when they find out people are making fun of them so they might not be there long, though.)"
