Probably 2012 as it matches his other Gorge works.
Yep.

I'm surprised he doesn't show the logjam in the video.

Still saying nothing about my comment, but coincidentally, he had another blog post the other day about "is photography art?"

I don't think that blog post says anything much of relevance to your original comment:

"There is a profound difference between artists using photography as a medium, and photographers striving to create art."


Quote
"I don't have to give myself a label. What I can do is say 'no' to certain things. For example, if I'm invited to do a photography show, I tend to say no. The medium itself, I find, is a relatively boring context. You would never see a show about acrylic painting. If it's that kind of understanding of the medium, it's completely uninteresting on an intellectual level. I make art. I don't come from a photographic background and I try to stay away from contexts where the work is diminished down to how it's made. For example, I wouldn't do a show about Fuji film.
Ö
I don't teach photography students, I teach art students, and if they think they can make use of a camera that's fine. But probably they've started at the wrong end because they've chosen their medium before they've chosen their content."

Thomas Demand, pp14-22 Image Makers, Image Takers


Is there a profound difference between artists using painting as a medium, and painters striving to create art etc. ?

The form factor isn't really suited to some users it's a simple as that really but there are others
Mirrorless brings additional problems to the table vignetting and distortion are much bigger issues due to the lens sitting so close to the sensor, even with these addressed with software for many users there are no obvious reasons to switch unless you collect some of the smaller prime lenses

It's not quite the magic bullet some makers would have folks believe.

I don't know who the purveyors of magic bullet marketing are you're referring to but its just marketing.  Just like the ads that try to convince you that life is better if you just drink a Coke or have some Kool Aid.

You seem to be adhering to the notion of "all or nothing".  You don't have to switch from any camera system.   One can have their DSLRs and lenses *and* have a mirrorless camera and lenses.  There are no cameras of any form factor I'm aware of that are perfectly suited to everyone. 

If the current mirrorless camera systems offerings don't fit your needs that's fine.  To each his own.

I have to jump in here - I've owned an IPF8300 for 3 years and use it almost daily. The cost of ownership is much higher than the initial purchase price. This VERY large/ heavy printer comes with a 1 year on site service warranty. After that, a service contract is about $1,300/year. If you don't have a service contract and need a repair the cost for a service call is about $1,200. The printer comes with 12 330ML ink carts, that is a LOT of ink, if you don't print regularly the ink will last forever, that might sound good, but low usage is the main reason for problems (clogged heads, short head life, etc) from what I have read on the forums. Head replacements are $350 each.

If you're going to prints less than 1,000 SF /year, I'm not sure if owning one of these printers make sense. These printers are designed to print MUCH more than that per year.

- just my opinion

Good catch! 2010 was what I recollected, but I can't locate where I got that number, and now you've proved me wrong re. the date as I do find that he states it was shot with an IQ180, which was not available until 2011. His vivid description of how the image was made (handed to me in a stylish black envelope by the sales person at his gallery) is copyrighted 2012.
It really doesn't matter. I was wondering if he somehow had a beta version of that back or something.
Probably 2012 as it matches his other Gorge works.

Burt Glinn from the 1981 book World Photography by Bryn Campbell.


"Our world is so flooded with photographic images that when we preconceive we end up, probably unwittingly, taking pictures of pictures we have seen."

2010? Are we sure about that?
I thought he used an IQ180 for that shot.

One of the worst things I have ever seen, other than focus by wire, is the removal of the aperture ring on the lens.  I suspect, that at least part of the reason for this, is to limit the usefullness of the lenses to the manufacturers bodies.

The other thing I dislike is the limits manufacturers place into their firmware, thereby limiting the usefullness of the camera and handicapping (or at least irritating) the photographer.

Bold statements.  Perhaps you'd like to expand on your rants.

- how does the lack of an aperture ring limit the usefulness of the lenses on the manufacturers bodies?
- how do manufacturers limit you through their firmware and thereby irritate you?

You are aware that there are some manufacturers like Fuji that have aperture and focus rings on their lenses, right?

Not affiliated, just a customer:

Check out www.TheIPSstore.com, Craig is extremely responsive, even on weekends. Bought my lovely Epson 9890 for $2999, delivered with liftgate. Even had an offer for $200 free Epson paper. This was December, but they have deals all the time. Will even match prices.

I presume this is free for those with 8.1, and not a 30 day trial as the website seems to imply?

Hi,

Their updates are free for the licensed version (e.g. V8), version upgrades (e.g. V7 to V8) cost some money. Just enter your V8 registration number to activate.

Cheers,
Bart
