What Are You Tired Of?

Wired magazine has a listing of things in the photo world they believe need to be dumped down a black hole. I agree with most of them, though, as I wrote to Tommy McGahee who sent me the link, watermarks – if done reasonably – don’t bother me much.

And I’m getting tired of HDR, too … and the megapixel war is just stupid at this point. I’d been shooting with the Canon 5D for about a year and a half and really loved the files coming out of it. After a few months with the 5D Mark II, the files – though nearly twice the size – just aren’t the same.

At least Canon (and some others) are getting the picture – the newly-announced G11 is a lower resolution than the G10 it’s replacing. Smart.

  1. Rumor has it that with Canon’s release of the 60D they will reduce the MP count to help noise and overall image quality. “Lets focus on making the images/files better instead of bigger, they’re big enough.” – I like this new trend
