  • I'm sure the real tests used by the researchers were much more objective - or at least as objective as any test that is looking at subjective matter can be :-) I've been in the same boat as you ...
  • http://www.bbc.com/news/health-34039054 On the spectrum from afantasia to hyperfantasia I lurk very near full on afantasia. Nick
  • Fix the cat so he looks less bilious and the background/foreground goes awry. Green or other colour casts are not unknown from Sigma cameras of any generation, so I'm unsure why you think trying to ...
  • Show me some proper double blind tests where ANYONE - even those blessed with so-called "golden ears" - can tell any difference between a £300 or a £3000 amplifier, CD, turntable etc Nick disclaime ...
  • Considering how much the camera can't do well I wouldn't give it more than a qualified 3 or 4 stars. Of course for some things it is a 5 but for others it would barely make 1 ;-) And yes, I bought ...
  • Then shoot with an old Kodak box brownie - no batteries, crappy lens, etc. Or deliberately scracth the lens on your DP to give more imperfections ... Nick
  • Not sure if you have much knowledge of wildlife but green cats are a real rarity - I don't know of any off hand. I've shot him lots of times in that same garden with cameras from 4 or 5 makes and ...
  • The Sigmas I've owned have had the worst colour accuracy of any of the many digital cameras I've owned over the years. Anything other than sunny days and I often get colour casts that I have never ...
  • ie the photographer has applied his own focus to both cameras then I'll take the in focus photo over the out of focus one, unless of course the focus of the photographer is to produce an out of ...
  • For instance the Sony will almost certainly be faster to aquire focus which could mean the difference between an in focus shot and one that isn't - in this case the Sony's in focus effort would be ...
  • Though it looks truly fugly :-) I'd be too scared of frightening small children or people of a nervous disposition to use it myself, but I'm glad it's working for you, Nick PS If Sigma had used a ...
  • Replied in Empire jibes ?
    Is this the level to which you're going to sink if someone makes an adverse comment about Sigma ? It's like the bad old Sigmafia(tm) days again. Nick
  • And an excellent guitarist :-) Nick
  • I would hope Sigma were as well - if you're going to provide a translation service then try to provide a good one. You can even employ translators who don't physically live any where near thanks ...
  • It's only really the ones with Chinese goods that are god awful. I believe all the ones I've read recently from japan have been very good - as a man I tend not to read them and try to muddle ...
  • Surely it would only have cost a few tens of pounds/ few hundred yen to get this properly translated and spell checked. I could forgive these errors in somebody's personal blog, but on their own ...
  • Replied in Hardly,
    If I was going to get a big barge I'd go for the series III Jaguar XJ 5.3 V12 - a car which I have owned - 4 more cylinders makes all the difference :-) Generally regarded as the best riding car of ...
  • I don't see a single UK vehicle - did we move to the States in the '50s ? Nice photos nonetheless; would have been nice to see something home grown instead of ill handling, oversized, over finned, ...
  • I don't have anything other than Aperture and SPP. I'd be surprised if it was a sensor issue as I can't think why a particular Bayer sensor would show better or worse edges than any other - though ...
  • Not sure if that is a function of Adobe's conversion or jpg artefacts but my results from the old A7r don't look like that. Here's a 600% view from an A7r RAW converted with Aperture - do you see ...
