  • Replied in k50 kit
    I would recommend the K50 two-lens kit you had mentioned.  Body and both lenses are weather resistant, the viewfinder is a pentaprism design with 100% coverage (and even has interchangeable ...
  • As I stated in my first post in this thread, I agree with the OP that the FZ1000 might be a reasonable alternative to the cheaper DSLR two-lens kit but that I would find a fixed lens camera more ...
  • A couple of things I don't like on a camera are having the shutter button do anything other than release the shutter and having to press and hold one button while simultaneously doing something ...
  • No, I trust a source because what they wrote proved to be true when I used their information as part of the process of making a purchasing decision. I also find Camera Labs, DPReview, and Imaging ...
  • I know it's not one of the options you listed, but I'd urge you to consider the 25mm f/1.8 prime lens instead of the one or two zoom lens packages. Photonet has an article on building a DSLR ...
  • What evidence are you basing that statement on? I happen to trust Trusted Reviews because I've found their information consistent with my own experience when I've had to buy something I couldn't ...
  • You're right. When I checked Trusted Reviews review of the GH4, it said, "In terms of the camera's dynamic range, the GH4 impresses here also. The level of detail captured in shadows and ...
  • No. That section in the Trusted Reviews article said, "just like the Panasonic Lumix GH4, the Panasonic DMC-FZ1000 punches above its weight in terms of dynamic range." http://www.trustedreviews.com ...
  • My guess is that ultimitsu is referring to the fact that the bird feeder shot does not include much with which to evaluate dynamic range, colour, or detail retention since the shot has a limited ...
  • Yes, I made my quotes from the IDPC document "Data Protection and Street Photography." Did I misquote it? You had written in your previous post: My response was that you can take pictures, and ...
  • I like the idea of a fixed lens camera.   One thing a non-enthusiast like me does not want to deal with is sensor dust, and I've never had an issue with this using a fixed lens camera.  What I ...
  • The use of cameras is not being banned, and their law does not prohibit tourists from taking pictures: ". . . This means that, if a photographer snaps a picture which identifies a natural person, ...
  • Replied in DoF questions
    This same idea (longer lenses magnifying the blur effect) came up a couple years ago in a similar thread, and someone posted a link to a Canon lens review which had a good illustration of the ...
  • As others have mentioned, it's hard to make a recommendation without knowing the specific deficiencies you are experiencing with your current lens; that is, what do you want to take pictures of ...
  • Replied in "Draws"
    I'm not familiar with Mr. Chambers, but the "drawing" of a lens has been used in the past not in any pretentious way, but simply to indicate that some lenses render lines more accurately than ...
  • That probably depends on what your purpose is when setting exposure. Whether slides or out-of-camera JPEG's, I want mid-toned items in the scene to be mid-toned in the picture, with darker and ...
  • Replied in jackdan and GB
    Your answer is completely nonsensical to me, perhaps because I'm not understanding what you mean by total light. In my mind, total light is all the light collected by the sensor across the sensor ...
  • Replied in incomplete?
    Isn't that a somewhat incomplete thought? The word renders seems to require an object, so you'd have to say what it renders well. For example, my kit zoom renders straight lines well at 35mm; that ...
  • Replied in +1 (nt)
    no text
  • Replied in jackdan and GB
    I started to reply to jackdan, but realized I was also addressing GB's response. A bit confusing, but I'll avoid replicating by just responding here. I wasn't very clear apparently, but I was ...
