China: Portrait of a People - In Focus - The Atlantic
Thanks for the link, I recently listened to a podcast interview with him so I'm glad to see the images. Very impressive!
Thanks for the link. Great pics !
Wish I could do as well with 4 times the megapixels
How dare he attempt to make wonderful photography out of anything less than 10mpx camera! My Eyes!!!! my eyes!!
Very nice. Just go to show that the camera is just part of the equation.
Ah, skill triumphs again.
Thanks for sharing the link. These are some truly awesome images! I'll save this link so that the next time someone asks for more megapixels on their cameras, I will show it to them...
Thanks for posting the link. The photos are inspiring.
It also helps to have something worth shooting. Our pics of flowers, dogs and cats really have a tough time by comparison.
No, it's just because he had that 4mp camera. Oh wait! I have still somewhere my good old 3mp Olympus Camedia. I'll post some quick cat shots so you will see what I'm talking about. :tongue:
Thanks for sharing. I was interested to see what camera he used .. and ... voila .. it is an Olympus Camedia C4000 ... ... Tom Carter's candid camera
Thanks a billion times mate . I can tell u how happy and satisfied I was when I had only Sony 5MP P100 P&S. Its very good to know about technical aspect of any thing but excess of everything is bad . I would happily spend 3000 dollars on travelling and shooting with a 200-500 camera rather than buying a FF , sitting at home on various forums and bullying people that my Nikon D800 has 36 MP and files clean upto ISO 6400 blah blah and unfortunately this is what happens these days and there are only a few Tom Carters in the world of digital photography and rest of them are Tom Techocarters .The more we have , more we complain .
ANyway happy shooting with you FF, 2/3Frame , 1/2 Frame , 1/4 Frame or 1/10 the Frame cameras ahahaahah
Obviously, there will be some situations where the limitations of 4 megapixels would be striking and side by side comparisons of 100% crops would show the advantages of more pixels on resolution and clarity - but these photos demonstrate pretty clearly that you do not absolutely NEED cameras with tons of megapixels to take beautiful photos. Would I want to go back to 4MP? No. But I also don't see the need to run out and buy a 36MP FF camera, either. Nice link.
Lovely. Some of my favorite pictures are still from my very first digital camera, a 4 megapixel Minolta. Sure, the color depth, sharpness and resolution isn't great, but that doesn't make the pictures any less good. I also spent years shooting a 6 megapixel DSLR.
I mean, I'd rather have 20+, because I love big prints, but content trumps technology, every time.
It really does come down to what you want to do with the pictures. For the web or 4x6 prints, 4 megapixels is plenty.
Awesome shots, thanks for sharing.
These are good photos. But I wouldn't want to do a long trip like that without a better camera.
I would love to spend two years travelling around North Africa. And I would be perfectly happy with my PM2.
For all the gear talk on this forum, it seems we don't have any gear snobs
thoroughly enjoyed those images, great post, always like to read about photographers pushing the limits lesser capable cameras, its really makes you look at yourself as a photographer rather than rely on the kit. Its all too easy in this day and age too "polish a turd" and create a very respectable image using Post Processing, which really takes away skills from being a good photographer.
Still though, the M43 format would be my ultimate weapon of choice for traveling. .
Definitely a very good photographer that bloke. When there are enough light, the pictures are simply amazing.
These kinds of guys are simply going to embarass alot of people using better cameras.
