    A handful of doomsday believers offed themselves prior to the millenium changeover. So yes, the world did come to an end for them. They were correct. For some of us . . . nothing happened, nothing changed.

    There's a latin phrase for that.

    Can you use digital tripods with film cameras?

    Some newspapers here in the States have started doing this -- giving their staff "photographers" HD video camaras from which the "photo editor" picks the frame they want.

    Aha, Bjorke, you are wrong!

    Reading this while at work, I have resolved to always stand in front of my monitor when I peruse your posts!

    Most of what I know about Erwin Puts comes from his "Leica Lens Compendium", which does a great job of communicating the finer points of optics in a highly readable style. Comparing the book with writings such as the one on his website, I would have to say that the book has benefited heavily from the efforts of the publisher's editors, whereas the article cited by the OP is barely coherent, has no logical structure, makes sweeping statements without citing any evidence or other corroboration and is in general what we writing professionals call a "sticky mess".

    Puts has apparently no knowledge of professional photography or the history of the medium. No sooner had the wet collodion negative/positive process been invented than people like Henry Peach Robinson (in the 1850s) were manipulating the medium to the limit of the facilities available to them - the art of retouching also developed by leaps and bounds, and by the time the Aerograph machine came in use around 1920, there was very litttle which retouchers and graphic designers could not do to change a straight photograph out of all recognition. As a professional photographer, I know of nothing which Photoshop can do which wasn't done 80 years ago - digital imaging and Photoshop just make it easier, quicker and less demanding in terms of skills. Puts seems not to know this, which gives his views zero credibility as far as I am concerned.

    Regards,

    David

    What exactly has Putz done in his life that he garners such attention on the internet? He is an absolutely awful photographer from the images I have seen of his, and I don't think he really understands much about photography from the writings of his I have read. I have pretty much dismissed him as someone on a soapbox that shouts really loud but doesn't have anything relevant to say.
