  • Replied in Thanks......
    Probably. I do not have time to perform this investigation on every RAW format. Apparently the ORF format does not have an embedded JPEG [per a quick search]. In addition to JPEGsnoop, there are ...
  • The quest to get it right is what photography is about. Enjoy.
  • Replied in Pandora's Box
    The above exchange was about Moore's Law, not about "the strain that high-MP files put on cameras' processing and storage capacities". A relationship, but different topics, IMO. Again, you are ...
  • Get multiple HDs. I like the kind that unplug from their cabinet, so you can buy several HDs and trays and move them around. Keep a set in your bank vault ["safety deposit box"]. If you want a ...
  • I just LOVE it when somebody creates boundary conditions for a position, like limited DR scenes and the availability of lenses of "similar" quality, w/ max apertures chosen to give the same ...
  • Replied in Pandora's Box
    Both Nikon and Sony have produced a range of camera bodies. One distinguishing parameter is the number of pixels and the size of the photosites. I think that is a great way to operate. They ...
  • Replied in Pandora's Box
    Very true. I should have made that statement! The problem is that nobody can make all TRUE statements in any one post. :-( Life is so short... I often say that cameras are compromises. Instead of ...
  • If I knew the answer to that, I would probably be dead by now. It's a factory secret. Anybody who knows is sworn to silence and I don't work that way! Seriously, they designed the "genie" in the ...
  • Now that you have joined the "conversation" I'll echo what others have said. To get good pix from a cruise ship you need a very long FL lens. I would recommend: (1) Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 ...
  • A little known fact is that NEF files have 2-4 embedded images, not just one. They have different formats, sizes, and quality settings. None of them has a very high IQ; not even close to the ...
  • Even if it's true? One clan attacks another clan. These clans are aligned with Japanese brands. The same thing happens w/ products made elsewhere, so it's NOT about just the Japanese. I'm only ...
  • Replied in My bad
    You are one of many. :-(
  • That is very true. However, dismissing something as being unnecessary for one group does not inform about either the need for more capability or why that group is unaware of that capability. ...
  • What you propose is to limit the difficulty, so that the "test" is not stressful. In that case, yes all students will pass. But that does not mean that all the students are equally qualified for ...
  • I think you missed that I was agreeing w/ you. Again, I was agreeing w/ you...just expanding the discussion.
  • I think that is an extremely poignant point. One of my major points w/ students is that it's possible to take a RAW image that maximizes the DR, but doesn't look particularly good OoC. Some folks ...
  • Replied in Pandora's Box
    This is a very common snare that trips "technologists" who believe that more pixels trumps all else. Most sensor development today has been driven by the very small ones in cell phones. That is ...
  • Many people are. I said that. What is "reasonable" in one religious perspective is unreasonable and offensive in another. To not understand that is the cause of much suffering. Study history? ...
  • Not familiar to me. Sorry. But it does suggest a new product class. Why don't they sell small portable ice makers for our sore muscles? :-0
  • Aberaeron, as you can tell, you have "hit a nerve" here! Craig and I are in agreement that when folks say they "get it right in the camera" instead of "getting it right in the darkroom" they are ...
