  • I suspect that's very true. In some respects, I see mirrorless taking outselling - but not replacing - DSLR as something of an inevitability, although not in three years. And a big reason for that ...
  • You can pick up a high-grade pentaprism for a few cents on Alibaba if you buy them in quantity, so probably not as much as you might expect. I'd be surprised if the full assembly costs more than ...
  • We have it relatively easy now. There were at least 31 different sizes of sheet and plate film, and 42 different sizes of roll film and cartridge film. More if you count the really obscure ones ...
  • Of course, if Mitch Feinberg is still using his 8x10 digital back, that should be the benchmark for digital 100%. FF would therefore be around 0.13%, APS would be about 0.08%, and MFT would be 0.03%. ...
  • Lightroom is a good integrated photo editor and asset management system. There are better ones available, but they have both a steep learning curve and invariably standalone packages. It has ...
  • It depends what you mean by affordable, but an Elinchrom D-Lite RX One has what it calls an 'eye cell' optical sync trigger on the control panel at the rear of the unit.
  • Yes. You should be able to use it at all speeds if it is either directly connected to the hot shoe, or to a cord connected to the hot shoe. It should also work if you connect some kind of IR ...
  • Since when are you the law of photography? You may not accept this argument, your royal highness, but your obsession with light gathering puts you in a very small circle. Google 'light gathering' ...
  • My comparison followed on directly from that point. It was a specific claim made, which I refuted. Your 'different' input here is little more than glorified thread cr@pping. Except that P&S are ...
  • Equivalence was factored out in the comparison, because Great Bustard said: "For a given angle of view, ignoring DOF or light gathering ability, lenses typically tend to be smaller, lighter, and ...
  • In which case, the comparable MFT lenses would be an Olympus 14-150mm and a 12mm. These weigh 415g combined. The Nikon FF equivalent is about 1.4x heavier, depending on the combination of 28-300 ...
  • I agree with Thom Hogan and disagree with him in equal measure: He's right the camera makers are in a rut. He's wrong that the rut is self-imposed. The problem is "if you build it, they don't ...
  • The Fuji sensor is ISO-invariant. So, when you photograph an image at ISO800, what the camera is really doing is taking an image at ISO200 and applying two stops of post-production image...

  • However, if you compare lenses under those conditions, and weigh the best possible 'Holy Trinity' lens set designed for FF with a comparable 'best possible' equivalent on a dedicated APS-C system ...
  • I would seriously like to hope so. Evidence points to a contrary position. The world is increasingly freak and nut-filled, too.
  • No. I live in another continent. On an island that once tried to run a paediatrician out of town because the title begins with 'paedo...' The West is moving intellectually backwards, and I see no ...
  • Good luck with that. My take on this is photographers are targeted for being photographers, unless they are taking picture in very remote places. It's moved from 'you got me!' to 'stop taking my ...
  • I've stopped doing street photography because by 2010 one time out of three I either ended up having to face down someone who decides arbitrarily I'm a paedophile, or a terrorist. The last year I ...
  • Again you equate what I observe with what I personally feel. Like it or not, we are moving into a world that views such photography as intrusive. Whether it is intrusive or perceived as intrusive ...
  • That's not relevant. We're moving away from people capturing images like this because they don't know the person in a social context. The invasion of privacy issue is not about permission, it's ...
