  • Replied in Touche
    Good thing I didn't claim to be the expert. :) Now in practice, this would work out fine for me in most situations because my K-5 is happy to lift the shadows a ton. Even so, getting over this...
  • Replied in So What?
    The setting at which the sensor has its maximum dynamic range. That depends on the camera. There's no EXIF - so the simple answer is, it depends. It means you set your parameters such that the...
  • Replied in So What?
    A lot of those things are overrated, sure. I'd take DOF out of that list, if only because more than the others it's as much an artistic choice as a technical one (i.e. I can't imagine...
  • Replied in So What?
    Sorry to jump in here, and this isn't directed specifically at GB, but this is the only post I've seen so far that presents the argument in a concise manner. As a matter of practice, there...
  • One of the first photos I ever conceived and planned was this one. I don't think it's my best photo but it's probably my favourite. On one hand I wish I'd saved the RAW file (my computer at the...
  • You have a better chance of getting a picture of Bigfoot and the Abominable Snowman together at a sold out Miami Marlins game with Haley's Comet over a double rainbow in the background than you...
  • The K-01 did not fail because of mediocre AF (though that didn't help). It failed because no one wants to chimp with a brick. If you want to chimp you want a NEX or PEN or something like that. If...
  • This sounds an awful lot like your feeling is that you should be able to basically take the mirrorbox out of a DSLR and run it in contrast detect mode and get the same performance (which is what...
  • It's doable, but no one will buy it. This sounds a lot like a K-01. The reviews were pretty unanimous that a mirrorless body that big made no sense. It had other issues but at the end of the day...
  • Every time a new camera gets released, the good folks here on dpreview forums cry long and hard about how it doesn't have the feature set *they* want. On those rare occasions when a new offering...
  • The light is crap, the shot is underexposed, and digital zoom is on. With all that working against it, this doesn't look all that bad. Garbage in → Garbage out.
  • For what it's worth, I've found an articulating screen to be much more flexible than a tilting screen. With my G3 I extend  the screen and hold it in my left hand and the camera grip in the right,...
  • I used to shoot an Oly E-410, went to a K-5 kit and also use a Panny G3. In my experience with these kits, I would say that the OP should find any of the 16MP m43 bodies a very significant...
  • I agree, it should be DA-L. Not an earth shattering fault though. The kit lens is not at all comparable at 35mm for IQ. There is a big sharpness advantage to the prime, over the entire field of...
  • I would take the Metz over the Pentax just for the fact that the Pentax flash head doesn't swivel. Once you've used tilt and swivel, you won't go back. The Metz will also have a little more reach,...
  • Somewhat off topic, but Mythbusters has debunked that... http://www.dudelol.com/mythbusters-you-can-in-fact-polish-a-turd
  • First one, hands down. For me, the colours make it a decent shot - the mono treatment removes all the interest from the image. We see a lot of monochrome versions of photos with this same question....
