  • There are a variety of situations where it might or might not be important. A professional photographer working in a studio may not care about size/weight - but want reliable, high quality, and ...
  • In the US, the Carbonite service is unlimited at a fixed price for "internal drives". I built my own machine and it currently has a 2TB drive, which if it fills up I will just get a 4TB, etc. The ...
  • The flash show is like the Internet Explorer of photography. At one time there was a standard shoe, but then each manufacturer started adding non-standard "extras" to their shoes. So now of course ...
  • Yeah, I'm sure that would really generate some adjectives from all sides.... it must be the insanity of age!
  • I find both sides kind of funny, as if this is really a quality Sony, Nikon, or Canon owners exclusively rather than just a quality of all humans. Using terms like "zealots", "wankfest", ...
  • You are where I am on the NEX-6. I have it right now and I'm waiting to skip a generation to the new APS-C whenever it comes out. I figure I'll wait a few months until the excitement dies down and ...
  • This is a good way to put it - the DR is not really reduced but the quantization is compromised a bit as the values which means steps in the tones rather than a more continuous curve capability. Th ...
  • We're glad you are in shape. You seem not to understand that what bothers you and works for you is not the same as for everybody else.
  • Neil, I had a Pentax H3v and a Spotmatic in the day, and still have my bought-new Pentax MX. Just had it lubed and cleaned a couple of years ago, it still works great. Too bad you can't get ...
  • So much talk about mirrorless zealots but look at the adjectives being used here. It's really not important that different people have different desires/needs. Enjoy your gear.
  • I have I think about 400 or so gigs of backup to Carbonite. The initial back ( a number of years ago) took a number of weeks at 1MB upstream (I'm now at 5MB upstream so it would be faster). But of ...
  • Haha! My phone is f2.4 with OIS. (seriously). I'd like to see how it compares to the listed images. Probably pretty good in bright light.
  • I use the 3-2-1 philosophy - 3 copies on two types of media and one offsite. Primary copy is internal HD on my computer Secondary copy is external HD, sync'd weekly Tertiary copy is to the cloud; I ...
  • What do "fast primes" have to do with the sensor size? There are fast primes for most sensor sizes. The poll was about sensor sizes, not fast primes. Seems like your comment is apples to oranges.
  • There are many articles published that talk about the lossy 12 bit compression of the A7's, so perhaps they are in error. Many articles also mention that Sony's compression is lossy, yet you say ...
  • Replied in UWA Zoom
    Well it is also more versatile in that it's cheaper, sharper, and wider aperture than a zoom. Great for astrophotography as well.
  • I don't really see the point of the exercise. If you are in great light with a good lens, then most good cameras will render an excellent image. You buy a larger sensor for higher DR and/or better ...
  • I guess I'm too old school, but all you've listed are zooms. I am a prime shooter. When I was first shooting in the 70's I couldn't afford zooms and they were too quality-compromised. If you shoot ...
  • How much quality do you need and what sensor size do you need? That's the first question you need to answer. If you want small the best way to do that is to go down to APS-C or Micro 4/3 sizes. ...
  • Actually I do have an engineering degree although not specifically in this area. I understand what you are trying to say but I don't believe it's correct. The bits here involve the compression ...
