  • Poorly done HDR can be an eyesore, but HDR used to overcome the disadvantage sensors have compared to the eye is a necessity in some scenes. With all tools, you must fight the tendency to misuse it.

  • Commented on Ricoh GR comparative review preview

    Here's the advantage most people don't notice:
    Flash sync speed: 1/2000 sec!!! This means you can use fill flash in bright daylight without a neutral density filter! You can capture things no...

  • Here's another one from today's sunset: https://www.flickr.com/photos/fotogeneticist/14750615163/
  • I wish I was back in the Ricoh camp. I've been a fan of Ricoh since the original film GR21 cameras. They know how to make cameras for photographers, not just pixel peepers or hipsters. I got...

  • Yes!  Everyone should have this lens.  To be quite honest, however, even it is not quite wide enough for me.  I would like Nikon to make a 5-9mm f/2.8 lens--essentially the equivalent of my ...
  • Awesome shot!  You've inspired me to get my old 300mm f/2.8 out for some moon shots as well!
  • Thank you andrbar as well.  This was definitely more of a "test" shot than one with composition in mind.  But the color came out so well that I definitely am going to play around with the ...
  • Thanks for the tip.  I was trying to decide where to go with this photo and just decided to post the original, uncropped stitch for now.  I might play around with this a little more later.  Thanks!
  • DuxX, as Andy points out, the word "never" is where you are wrong. My APS-C from 12 years ago is nowhere as good as the quality of my 1" sensor from 2 years ago. You're missing a key element, and...

  • I'm still going through other photos I took yesterday, but this one came out better than I thought it would so I thought I'd post it here.  I continue to be amazed by my V1 and 6.7-13mm combo.  ...
  • Yes, you MUST get one!  Like I said, I don't know why I waited so long. I'm really enjoying the ability to use 52mm filters with it (although I forgot my filters at home in this particular ...
  • I actually thought I had brought my ND filters.  As the sun was setting and I searched through my bag for them, I realized I left them on my dining table.  So I stopped down the lens to f/16 and ...
  • Thanks Dave.  I just went through your Yosemite photos and they are beautiful.  I'll have to get up there sometime.
  • Thank you.  I am definitely pleased with the image quality my V1 and new lens provides me!  I can't wait to take more photos with them!
  • Thanks! The 1 inch sensor is still better than the APS-C sensors that I started with and took many beautiful landscapes not so long ago. I find it amusing when people comment on the IQ from the 1 ...
  • I see you're also a D700 shooter--I was as well until my D700 died and I had to use my V1 as my main camera.  Although I miss the smooth color from my D700, I've been very pleased by the color and ...
  • Just thought I'd share a couple of landscapes from my new lens which I just received yesterday! I don't know why I waited so long to get one! First night out with my 6.7-13mm. Experimenting in very ...
  • That being said, for me, the J4 may be the way to go. IQ looks on par with the other 1" sensor (RX100) except in shadows, which is OK with care in your exposure (a basic photography skill). Most...

  • It all boils down to "biggest capability, smallest size". Capability can be measured in many ways. Image quality, responsiveness, user interface, etc. Even image quality itself can be measured...

  • Look at RAW Sony RX100 Mk III side by side with RAW V3 at all ISOs greater than 1600.

    The RAW images at the higher ISOs look nearly identical, with the V3 resolving more detail. The real problem...
