Interview with Steve McCurry @ Focus Numérique

Wed March 14, 2012

Focus Numérique has an interesting interview with Steve Curry. It’s in French but you can read the Google English translation. Curry speaks of using natural light to bring out the dramatic in his photos, on how digital is “better” than film, working with the Nikon D3x and Hasselblad, the iconic young Afghan picture, on working alone in the field and on the need to keep an emotional distance from your subjects.

Does Canon, Like Kodak Did, Run The Risk Of Becoming Irrelevant?

Wed March 14, 2012

Oh please, how in the world can you say such a thing — even think of it? After all, Canon DSLRs are used by professionals around the world. People make a living using one. Their cameras consistently earn awards. Movies are filmed using their DSLRs. No way. Uh-uh. Not happening.

Canon is the only major manufacturer still clinging to the traditional mirrored DSLR model. Even Nikon recognized the rising popularity — though not the inevitability — of the mirrorless DSLRs. With their 1 Series compact mirrorless, Nikon made a timid foray into the arena, staying well to the perimeter, and may not quite believe in it themselves.

But Canon, ah, Canon doggedly refuses to acknowledge the mirrorless DSLRs are a danger at all. In fact, it’s answer is the large (larger than Four Thirds, smaller than APS-C) sensor G1 X, a point-and-shoot with prosumer ambitions. If you’ve been reading the G1 X reviews we’ve linked to today and the past few days, you’re by now becoming very aware that the G1 X just does not cut it. How do you make a camera in this day and age that is so sluggish that it is good only for landscape photography? How do you justify the sticker price you slap on it so it competes with the compact mirrorless with interchangeable lenses and high resolution EVF? Someone at Canon obviously is suffering from the same “Hold the fort” mentality so prevalent at Kodak as digital gnawed away at their film business.

My money is on the table that Canon will introduce its compact mirrorless sooner than later and, if the minds that brought the EOS revolution still resides there, we may well see a mirrorless revolution at Canon too. Or maybe, we won’t.

SOLIPSIST Behind The Scenes

Wed March 14, 2012

SOLIPSIST – Making Of from Andrew Huang on Vimeo.

There are some fancy special effects in the original video and this behind the scenes shows how they were created. Once revealed, they do not seem so mysterious anymore, though it still takes lots of photography and editing skills to pull them off.

Here’s the original video:
