On Mystical - Enchanted Valley in the Mystical challenge (32 comments in total)

Beautiful shot, really is. And taken on a Canon with it's supposedly poor image quality
But it's not quite as simple as that is it? Why is there a highlight on the far hills if there's only one moon and it's facing the other way? The shadows aren't where they should be.

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1347 comments in total)

'crop' dslr's exist because back in the early 2000's full frame sensors were very expensive to produce so camera manufacturers invented a new format the same way they did with 110 and half-frame 35mm film.

Lenses are lenses and cameras are cameras. Buy what suits you best.

Many a great photo was taken on a 'crop' camera. It's just another photographic format.

bigdaddave: Well as long as Canons do it too it's not a fault. The Nikon bias here stinks.

Not sure you get irony

More fool the idiot who paid the money. One born every miunte, you just need to know how to find them.

I'll probably get suspended again but frankly the final result wasn't worth all the bother

Great review and nicely done. Proves it's actually hard to buy a poor digital camera these days

On A second glance: two takes on the Leica X article (392 comments in total)

Once again an Emperors-new-clothes camera from Leica.

Pretends to do all sorts of special things but is in reality an expensive, mediocre offering.

I would find it very difficult to respect anyone who really wanted to buy this monstrosity

bigdaddave: The camera is genuine but I doubt the lens is, the black Planars didn't arrive until much later, they were all silver back then

Yes, it does

Yes I read that but the 'facing' presumably refers to the camera body

Yes, it's possible as on close inspection it doesn't appear to have the T* coating. However all the photos I have ever seen of the early space Blads had silver lenses, Planar Distagon and Sonnar

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II: A professional's opinion article (501 comments in total)

An interesting perspective from an actual pro. However I still think it is a bit sad that 10 frames per second is enough however 8 isn't. There's a lot of spraying and preying going on. How did pro's ever manage with 4-5 FPS and 36 exposure rolls or even 250 shot backs? They picked the moment.

Certainly shows Barnaby's level. Bit dull and lacking imagination? You really want to show these to the masses?

In reply to:

bigdaddave: This article utterly proves my point about the Fuji X100 series being an utter waste of money.

When you can get this sort of IQ in a small camera WITH a zoom it makes no sense whatsoever to limit yourself forever to a 35mm lens equivalent.

This is not 1950.

I can get an Eos M and a 22mm for peanuts PLUS I can then change lenses, the IQ is if anything even better
