  • Camera movements have always been a relatively niche part of the photographic whole. I don't think movements were ever 'essential' unless you were an architectural or studio photographer. Even ...
  • If you press the two buttons simultaneously, the camera will show the 'protected image' graphic in blue on the LCD screen. The manual is not accurate here. Press and hold the trash-can button for ...
  • Misuse flauccinaucinihilipilificates the term.
  • You will get good enough to print big through learning a combination of the art of photography, the science of photographic imaging, and the craft of post processing. Along the way, you will ...
  • Both dismiss the technology of the other out of hand. I've heard some truly ridiculous arguments in support of - and equally ridiculous arguments against - both DSLR and mirrorless. And both ...
  • Replied in New feature
    What part of 'pretty much true' and 'virtually any camera' in my post didn't you understand? If you are determined to be a pedant, then yes, only about 95% of camera systems can achieve the ...

    But it's pretty much true. HC-B used zone focusing, keeping his camera focused at 4m (he was said to have put a blob of nail polish on the barrel of his 50mm Sonnar (he didn't use a Leitz lens on ...
  • We should be convincing non-photographers why they still need a camera, not trying to convince ourselves why one camera technology is better or worse than the other. If anything, photography in ...
  • So what? I mean really, so what?

    I am absolutely convinced that handing me a set of Rory McIlroy-endorsed golf bats will not make me a better golfer. Why would using a FF sensor make me a better...

  • 1. PC Sync sockets that sit on the hot shoe are readily available and cheap 2. Who still uses PC Sync anyway? It's not the 1970s anymore, despite the hipsters and their desire to take us back to ...
  • I think emulating stage lighting is a pretty decent idea, given the subject matter. It's a pianist (presumably) in a dark suit, with a grand piano in the background. It suggests concert ...
  • Because not citing the equivalent focal length angers the FF Taliban, who demand everything be referenced against a popular photographic frame size from the 1920s.

  • It's hardly surprising that people who post images to the gallery of the most ten-years-ago camera site on the internet are not exactly embracing the mirrorless world. In a similar vein, if there ...
  • Replied in To each, his own
    The author used Canon, then switched to Fuji, and now uses Olympus. If he is happy with his purchase, that's great. If he's not, there might be another post before the end of the year as to how ...
  • This might be due to using the double-whammy of Auto ISO and 'aperture priority'. I am not entirely happy that Fuji's shutter speed cut-off in Auto ISO is more like a guideline than a rule, and a ...
  • I think your friend has made a mistake. Are you sure he isn't confusing this with Jessops in Southampton (which has definitely closed, even if other Jessops stores are still going strong)? Let's ...
  • Is this why so many photographers are morbidly obese?
  • +1 Weight and size reduction are important points in the mirrorless movement. They are not the 'whole point'. I like the XE2 form factor for its size and weight, but IMO it feels front-heavy with ...
  • Not from me (not really a still life guy), but this is a good explanation fro a cinematographer (who is also not really a still life guy(: http://cbkmrks.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/using-color-correcti ...
  • Use your 600W LED. If it's adjustable, set it to 5500°K and take a custom white balance off a card. If it isn't, just take a custom white balance off a card. Then gel the LED with Roscoe Supergel ...
