  • This kind of makes me wonder. I though bokeh was a property of the lens? So lets say you use that lens on a FF at f1.4 and then use it on a APS-C at f1.4. Wouldn't you get the same bokeh as the ...
  • I thought you might've been. Sorry, I didn't mean to come off as argumentative :) I was just hoping someone would enlighten me. I felt like I was missing something :P
  • I'm kind of curious. I've seen people make this argument before, but who really needs f1.4 FF type DOF? I've done some headshots before and I've found that I still need to stop down to around f4 ...
  • Pretty much what you said In terms of FF vs APS-C I just see the equivalence as essentially "you're shooting at a one stop higher aperture in APS-C than FF". You lose about a stop of light at the ...
  • Product photography is all about the lighting (actually that could be said about all photography :-P ) Check out this tutorial on getting started on lighting ...
  • Commented on Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview

    This review is blowing my mind!

    Canon 7d MkII:
    84% Silver award

    Pentax K3:
    83% Gold award

    I don't even...

  • If it's anything like the other camera reviews, it'll be when the competition has something better out

  • Oh man that poll was depressing. Only one person voted for us! ONE PERSON! We must be doing something wrong as denizens of the internet! *Goes off and rethinks life*
  • There's been some rumors of the K3 going "end of life" but I'm not sure what to make of them. There hasn't been any announcements from Ricoh, but it's possible they're waiting for CP+ in February ...
  • Hah, I think you talking to someone back in 2009 :-P
  • Judging from the amount of responses to the earlier thread ( http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54693867 ) I don't think anyone cares *shrugs*
  • Replied in Totally OT
    It's the Eye of Provence http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eye_of_Providence Nothing malicious really. It's even on American dollar bills.
  • Personally I'd love to see an updated lens line up with the newer/faster DC motors instead of SDM. More lens choices would be a nice option too :-D
  • So I was reading Younes' post on the new D750 and that got me thinking about what was more important to me as a Pentax shooter. If you had a say in the matter, would it be more important to you ...
  • Looks to be done technically well. I'm guessing (from the highlights in the eyes) that you were using a reversed umbrella whilst nearby a window. That's given some nice even lighting. Though there ...
  • Can you give any more information about the specific error they're getting when trying to access the site? Any error numbers would be helpful. At the moment I suspect they've got an outdated ...
  • Seriously?! Where does Fuji get all their money for RnD?!? I'm considering investing in Fuji as a second system, but I'll wait another year to see what Pentax/Ricoh does :-P
  • I'm not sure about anyone else, but I prefer to buy full frame lenses for APS-C. The Tamron 70-200/f2.8 is a beast on the K3!
  • Replied in Pentax K-S1
    Same here, but I can't decide whether it's a good or bad thing.
  • Doing HDR or low light photography? Then you might need it. What time are you expecting to photograph it? If you're trying for the golden hour then probably, but if it's going to be high noon then ...
