This is one of the lucky finds that happen about once every lifetime. You may argue that photography and humor don’t mix, not to mention satire! Right, photography’s a serious business. But only if we take ourselves way too seriously. That’s where New Camera News comes in, an ingenious photography site dedicated to “the lighter side of capturing light.”
The site is so refreshingly good that I have to include it in THEME’s Live Rumors Feed for you to get more of the latest and greatest on camera gear…
Leica spokesperson Henry Heinrich said, “Like all special edition Leica’s, the Downton Leica has no relation to photography. We are simply cashing in our outsized reputation to fleece the status-seeking one percenters. It’s all good, however, as sales of special edition Leicas help keep the costs of our standard cameras at reasonable levels.”
Or you didn’t know yet that, in a rare move, Canon congratulated Nikon on the Df full-frame camera? Or what about the guy who took 100,000 photos in 2013 and his wife says none of them are any good. Or did you know gelontologists found a a correlation between sensor size and sense of humor?
And my favorite recent breaking news item — Local Photog Gets Canon Tattoo. Soon Regrets it.
What happened to local photographer Axle Pinion could happen to anyone, couldn’t it. You’re in that mood and pass a tattoo parlor…:
What happened in the intervening months is a little fuzzy, but what we do know is that there was a falling out of sorts, something about DxO and exposure range and Pinion becoming disenchanted with his Canon gear. One thing led to another, voices were raised (actually, just Pinion’s voice, because let’s not forget that the 5Diii for all of it’s capabilities, can’t speak), and Pinion snuck off one night to visit PentaxForums.com with an innocent post, “Thinking of switching to Pentax.” That was the beginning of the end of Pinion and Canon. The cult of Pentax welcomed Pinion with open apertures.
