  • It looks to me like the filter is working as expected. You see a larger effect on the left and right because the image is wider than it is tall. The effect on the top is more subtle than the ...
  • Seems like calling it a 'manic obsession' is just an ad hominem attack. If an EVF mirrorless is not to your liking, then fine. I'm not saying your D750 is not a very sweet setup, which I'm sure it is.
  • Yes, one of us does misunderstand the physics here. Cheers! Jim
  • Or a distant light source. Let's see, the sun is 93,000,000 miles away, so that's pretty much a light source at infinity.
  • No, the OLED technology only refers to how the image is formed and illuminated by the display itself. The lenses are just because your eye is too close to focus. It's the same as trying to look at ...
  • capanikon, you either didn't read what I posted, or you choose not to believe it. Try googling "EVF sunburn". I'm not saying it is a problem specifically with Nikon 1 EVF's. In fact, I specifically ...
  • Basically, yes. It will have a magnification lens setup in front of it like a loupe, since your eye is being asked to view something very close up. Some modern EVF's are OLED displays, but more ...
  • Yes, the micro SD thing is a minor annoyance. It's not as bad as I thought it would be, however, since the memory cards have so much capacity nowadays. I don't find myself swapping cards in the ...
  • Replied in Focus options
    There's also the fact that 'flat field' lenses actually try to project a flat focal plane. This means that (with your standard brick wall test) the actual distance between objects in the center ...
  • Google is your friend, on questions like this. Wikipedia is, too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focal_length If you start with a simple lens, (just a single element, like a magnifying glass), then ...
  • Exactly! Walk down the beach, and-- <delete>, <delete>, <delete>, <delete>, <delete>... The workaround for my camera is to turn it off after every photo. Sounds like it's time for my V1 to go back ...
  • Are any of you V1 users experiencing overly-sensitive buttons on the back of your camera? Mine is such that the functions available from multi-control dial, like AF/AE L, Timer, +/-, will be ...
  • Sorry, I haven't been keeping track. bartolyni, how many Elle magazine covers did you say you have?
  • Oops- echorower beat me to it: The new 1 Nikkor 10--30mm PD-Zoom lens has a little lens-cover shutter mechanism like a point & shoot. Power on the camera-- lens opens. No lens cap required. http:// ...
  • Replied in WOW !
    Yes, that's the problem with a forum like this. We're all self-appointed experts. In this case, just go back and read the posts by DaveR43. He's explaining what is actually going on. Regards, Jim
  • Replied in AF Fine-tuning
    Without going all Nikon-apologist, I think: Yes, the expectation is that lower-end buyers are looking at images less critically and are less sophisticated, photographically, and therefore less ...
  • Not sure what you mean by 'lens opening'. To the bottom of the front element? To the bottom (outside)  of the lens barrel? Lens hood? No. No.
  • I think the OP was referring to 'K' series Nikkor lenses, which are pre-AI lenses with rubber focusng rings. Not sure what the 'K' means. J
  • Best preventative is to store in a humidity-controlled chamber, keeping humidity below 30-40%. If a humidity controlled environment is not possible, storing in slightly elevated temperature will ...
  • In Marianne Oelund's excellent testing she did back in 2009, she says that she measured T-stops at the center of the image, specifically to avoid vignetting issues. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/p ...
