    They shouldn't have gone after such a small niche market.

  • " 8. Locking the AF area and controlling AF box via alternate means. It seems it is not possible to lock the AF area in a particular position. However, via a "AF points button", it is possible to ...
  • Ouch!...That's a very "deep" one...No I did not. ...which is a shame as, myself, I also would like to know. PK
  • Either you're mixing focus with exposure or you have some information that I do not. Is there any literature mentioning that on the cameras that feature AF spot metering linked to active AF point ...
  • Replied in Naw
    I did not mentioned the 6D. I was just pointing out that saying that the " D750 is becoming a strong contender " to the 5DMKIII is an understatement because it already is a very strong one. What ...
  • Now, that's a true understatement, if I ever read one...;-) PK
  • Replied in Easy to fix
    If it was my misuse of the mentioned word "matrix" that made you go on a confusing tangent about camera's brands different from the one related to the OP and to evoke allowance for "amount of bias ...

    Samples, please, samples. The amount of bias from the active AF into the matrix solution...?...really?...Which bodies? Ok...can you please post a sample where it was "very useful and efficient" in ...
  • Replied in interesting
    Only if metering is associated to focusing. errr...not really...it is spot metering. There's no "bias" involved in it. Can you please post an example where spot metering linked to the AF point was ...
  • Even so... I can't see a definite advantage of linking spot metering to the active AF point. I think the 1DX has it only because it differentiates the system as a flagship model. I don't know a ...
  • No. The 1DX has it. ...but I really don't understand why people need this. For action photography it is pretty much useless. For still-subjects photography, we can meter with "center over relevant ...

    Shouldn't it be "Samples LOL"...?...or is evidence a problem?

  • What a frank, information-filled, free flowing interview.

    I don't know why others, in other companies, behave otherwise.
