richard stone's recent activity

  • Replied in Going nowhere.
    Yes, and the OP presented a reasonable question. The dispute begins when people post answers that are (perhaps) meant to be responsive, but are not. Thus there is no need to say one version of the ...
  • Arg: Thanks, an excellent analysis. Richard
  • Yes. That is the question. And as you say the answer isn't based on how many pixels and how binning works, but simply, given a choice, which would you rather have. One problem is that many people ...
  • Excellent. Thanks for posting. Not boring.
  • Some people don't get it. There is no way to convince them, and it's not worth the effort of trying.

  • JD Thomas: Thanks for your great responses to the various wildly foolish negative posts. I personally do not need or want the swirly bokeh portrait lens, at least not right now, but I'm glad...

  • The SD10 is a very good match with these older lenses. No green corners. Sharp when you want sharp. Richard
  • I am very curious about the H, although I cannot now see how I would "need" it. I will have to work on justifying that... The H on low res (I assume that will be available...) sounds very ...
  • Oh No!! Not the dreaded, discussion ending "fanboy" insult!!! That's it for me, that alone is enough to prompt a response. But seriously, I honestly do not see the reason for denying being a ...
  • The newer smartphones have excellent cameras. I think the key is holding the camera still (not easy), or using the flash.
  • Ted: I think your post was worthwhile and grittiness is a perfectly good term to use. The surprising joy/charm of the Merrill, if you look at the early images from Quentin Bargate from Lu La, is ...
  • Arg Yes, I agree color perception is subjective. I tried to make it clear that I thought your contentions were correct. There is a place for both approaches to color. What I always wonder about is ...
  • It seems obvious that in any discussion of color accuracy the illuminant has to be specified, because that is the light being reflected. Color "accuracy" in the real world is thus a highly ...
  • These posts always amuse me. I bought a M43 camera a few years ago, for travel, when my SD10 was not working properly. Yes, the M43 was versatile, and easy, but the images were, sadly, uninspiring. ...
  • It's very nice. And easy to like. Thanks for posting. Richard
  • Yes, those batteries must be delicious.
  • And I would add this: The SD10 is a really good camera, in my view, with about the exact number of "pixels" required to produce a superb image; as I understand it, that was part of the design ...
  • As much as I wish I had something encouraging to say, I used one of those lenses for years, with an SD10,  and its ONLY virtue is that it is small and light. It is cheap for a reason. It will, of ...
  • I read most of this thread and I was initially glad to find someone who had at least sort of used the camera. Not to make images, but at least held it in his hands and looked at the EVF image. And ...
  • 800 seems to work just fine with this. Actually, I  can't see how a slower speed would have been helpful, because you could have introduced motion blur or reduced DOF, etc. For that matter, the ...
